2021/21?

United YouTube really wants to forget 2020 ever existed.

Anyway, either Fernandes vs. Newcastle or Fernandes vs. Everton

I never understand why they do this with 10% of the season still to play.

But from those goals, I would pick either Bruno's against Newcastle on the counter, or Bruno's against Roma.

Didn't even include Cavani's first vs. Roma at home. That was a cracking finish!

Bruno vs Roma for me. Pogba's acceleration, Cavani's first-time pass, the elegance of the finish... it's the best.

How do you pick out of those, some of the goals we've scored this season :drool:

Anyway for its Cantonaesque I went with Bruno v Everton (also voted Shaw POTY)

I think Bruno vs Newcastle edges it for me. It's so refreshing to see a season of good goals though, feels like a while ago we had such a highlight reel.

I'm going to go with Fred's acrobatic overhead kick from the halfway line to win the Europa League.

For me it has to be Fred's tap in against Spurs
Seriously? I could never consider a rebound for a tap in to be worthy no matter how slick the build up. Even the partial deflection on Rashford's vs Brighton is enough to discount that one for me.

Bruno vs Newcastle
Excellent passing, excellent team play, excellent counter, excellent finish

Coolest goal and honorable mention: Bruno vs Everton (the "Cantona goal")
Second honorable mention: Amad vs Milan

On a side note: we've scored a lot of nice goals this season!

Such a fun watch. Some cracking counter-attacking goals in there.

I'd go with Bruno's volley against West Brom. Zidanesque.

Wan Bissaka v Newcastle should be there. Huge number of passes leading to it

Lots of good ones in there. Going with Fred’s. Intricate play in tight spaces is :drool:

Reminds me a bit of Nani’s vs City in the community shield, although that one was better.

Another vote here for Fernandes vs Newcastle. Have to say though the Spurs game was my favourite of the season so far, and Fred scored from a great team move (pattern of play no less) so I really wanted to pick that one but its a close second.

God thats a tough list to choose from. Bruno has almost singlehandedly got enough stunners to fill this list. I would say my top 5 in no particular order are;
- Bruno vs Newcastle
- Bruno vs Everton
- Pogba vs West Ham
- Greenwood vs West Ham
- Pogba vs Fulham

Now that I've written that, how can you leave out Bruno against Istanbul too! Overall winner, I'd probably lean towards Bruno vs Newcastle as it's a near perfect goal.

Think that Bruno goal vs Instanbul ripped through the back of the net and still hasn't landed

Many great goals!

Greenwood vs West Ham is great,that first touch is something else.
Bruno`s rocket shot vs Istanbul is great too.
Rashford vs PSG is one of my favorite goals.
Pogba with a couple of stunners.

But my nr 1 is Bruno vs Newcastle,a perfect counter attack with a beautiful finish.

Bruno vs. Everton without a shadow of a doubt. Pure filth the whole way through, from the nonchalant way he swings his foot when he lets it roll to Wan-Bissaka to the most casual little feint you'll ever see that makes Davies completely shit the bed, and then a finish The King himself would be proud of.

Fred's against Spurs would be the best one if it had been Cavani that scored it first time. As the shot was blocked and Fred tapped it in it can't get the top spot, so I'll say Bruno vs Newcastle. Perfect counter attacking, perfect finish

My word, we've scored some crackers this season.

I'm really struggling here. It's a toss-up between Bruno's Cantona impression and his goal vs Roma.

I'm leaning towards the Roma goal as the build-up was top drawer.

Enjoyed watching that. Reminder of how good we've been this season, some fantastic football at times.

Think I'd go for Bruno vs. Newcastle. What a move that was.

It's nice to have so many to choose from.

The counter attack goal against Newcastle and Bruno's beauty at home to Everton are the stand outs. The first for being a lovely move and the latter for pure swagger.

Let this old man share his wisdom with you:

Bruno's goal against Everton has to win the contest. Simply because it even had a touch of Cantona-esque in there.

Bruno at Everton for me.

Fred a close second, for the build up and then for Fred to actually score. What a moment.

I really do like Greenwood's goal against West Ham too. Quality finish

Another vote for Bruno vs Newcastle. It edges out others like Bruno vs Everton and Pogba vs Burnley due to more of the team being involved instead of individual skill. So many players working in tandem topped off by a truly unstoppable finish. Goals like that are the reason teams set up deep against us, they know we can rip them to shreds if they commit too many bodies forward.

Honorable mention to Greenwood's goal vs Burnley. Rashford skinning his marker and Bruno's nonchalant dummy makes it an unforgettable one for me.
