Oppos: Great goals from your team that are often forgotten

  • The day many of you wished for has finally come - Match Day Score Predictions are no longer restricted to just 5 goals... *

    * The timing of this change is purely coincidental and has nothing to do with any perception of underperformance by any team in recent matches or fan pessimism, justified or otherwise, for future matches. (Probably).

What is one of the great goals from your (non-United) team that you believe has been forgotten.

First one that springs to mind for Chelsea is Zhirkov vs Spartak:

The peak of Juve’s 2010s cycle, aka Mandzukic’s goal (1-1) vs Real in the 2017 CL final. It ended 1-4, Agnelli went mad and bought Ronaldo from that same Real, the rest is pretty sad history… but THAT goal, folks….

I remember that Zhirkov goal, not sure if because it's a belter or if I was obsessed with Russians playing in the PL at the time.

Wasn't ever really known but any excuse to post it

A goal that I think patrick viera scored at anfield, can’t remember how it goes but remember thinking ‘that’s a beautiful goal’ if anyone has a link I’d like to see it again and see if it was as good as I thought but I saw the underrated oppo goals and immediately thought of that one …

Zaki had a weird career. He looked like he could be one of the best strikers in the PL when he first got to Wigan and then after a few months he just stopped scoring and he really seemed to stop caring at all about football

For Spurs, there was Erik Edman at Anfield. I always wondered why players didn't do this more often, just welt it in to the top corner from 40 yards. Looks so simple.

I don't know how many people remember Lisandro Lopez (Probably for his time at Porto/ Lyon) but he scored some great goals for us when he came home.

Bruno’s Cantona-esque goal was quality.

Also, CS final vs City. The tiki-taka goal :drool:
