    Was watching Matt Le Tissier 100 club on Sky this morning and seriously.... Does this man have the best collection of great goals? Who else produced the spectacular regularly?
    David Beckham has a rather nice collection, as does Scholes but it seemed every goal Le Tiss scored was a thing of beauty.
    Anybody know of anyone else whos goals would be good to search on youtube?

    A lot of Nani's goals were bangers, as I recall. RvP is another recent Utd player who springs to mind, incredible volleyer.

    Mark Hughes always springs to mind when taking about great goals. Didn’t score that many overall but loved a good volley.

    Think Zlatan may have the greatest collection of all time.

    Ronaldinho, some seriously sweet strikes and always great in the build-up.

    Same. It is the correct answer.

    The one that comes to mind for us is Nani.

    Indeed. He wasn’t very prolific and I felt at times that the way we had to play to accommodate him wasn’t the most productive. Following Choccy’s great debut season some of us weren’t at all sure that re-signing Hughes was a good idea, but he had a brilliant run in September/October ‘88, crowned by an unbelievable volley away at Everton.

    Lingard. If you watched his goals compilation you would think he is Messi.

    Jesse.

    Ronaldo at his time here scored some screamers, as did Rooney and scholes.

    Some good shouts - Ibra, Recoba, Hughes

    I'd add Rivaldo, Hagi, Forlan, Vialli, Gascoigne, Gerrard, Nedved, Zola, Albertz.

    Juninho Pernambucano. Obviously some great free kicks but also some great long range strikes.

    I remember when Welbeck was sold the quote was (I forget who from) that he was a scorer of great goals...but not a great goalscorer.

    Saying that, I struggle to remember him scoring worldies.

    Deffo Zlatan. The amount of spectacular goals from him outshadows most.

    Robben scored so many incredible goals for us.



    Both goals actually came only few weeks apart and were both nominated for the Puskas Award. He also scored that one the round before the United game:


    All these goals were the decisive goals to advance to the next round.

    First name that jumped into my head. That volley against Oldham, the 2nd against Barca... he was great.

    Also, Batistuta, Zidane, Charlton and, er, Jesse Lingard.

    Papiss Cisse had scored some incredible goals in that 6 months when he played like Alan Shearer. What happened with him by the way?

    Hazard scores absolute beauties on a regular basis.

    I think Jovic might turn into one of these.
    He loves a lob, hits it hard, high and precise almost every time, is great on the volley, and is good at improvising when the ball comes at awkward heights or angles.

    Nani would take it for the modern era United, definitely a scorer of great goals :drool:

    We probably talk about different Eders, but I agree.

    Asensio is the first guy that comes to mind. According to WhoScored he has only netted 21 in his career, but his top 10 will rival anyones.

    Speaking of Robben, this one, scored about 10 seconds after France got 1 goal back via Henry in 2008 was also amazing. The footage of Henry shaking his head and falling to his knees right after, I will never forget.

    Current players? Zlatan surely has to be considered. His greatest hits are unbelievable.

    From back in the day I recall players like Roberto Mancini, Juninho Pernambucano (his free kicks are legend), and Hagi.
