Goal of the Season – Wayne Rooney vs. Man City

29 May

No brainer this one. Sit back and enjoy!

Wayne Rooney wins the 2010/2011 Panenka Goal of the Season.

Player of the Season – Carlos Tevez

29 May

For me this is an easy decision. Stats alone Tevez has been exceptional this season. 20 goals and 6 assists in 31 league games. If not for injury then Tevez would have certainly picked up the golden boot which he shared with Dimitar Berbatov. For City though Tevez is far more than just goals. He is the focal point of the team, the captain, a player who’s desire, commitment and determination on the pitch can never be questioned. As good as the rest of the City team is, Tevez is the crown jewel who has delivered moments of magic time and time again this season.

So Carlos Tevez is the 2010/2011 Panenka Player of the Season.

Classic Goals #8 – Baggio vs. Czechoslovakia

26 May

Inspired by “Days Like These – The Big Match” over at http://inbedwithmaradona.com/ At the tender of 6 Baggio was without doubt my first foreign football idol, so much grace and composure on the ball, effortless.

Classic Goals #7 – Best vs. Benfica

26 May

Here’s another classic goal from the last time United played a European Cup / Champions League final at Wembley.

Classic Goals #6 – Koeman vs. Sampdoria

26 May

May as well milk the build up the final on Saturday. Here’s the winning goal from last time the final was held at Wembley in 1992. Struck with such tenacity by Koeman and that wall was definitely encroaching.

Iconic Images #4 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vs. Bayern Munich

25 May

I remember frantically scrambling around Florida as a 15 year with my Dad trying to find a bar that was showing this game. We found a bar with 20 minutes left and United trailing. The Americans in the bar couldn’t understand why we were celebrating so vigorously when this goal went in.

The jubilation in this photo perfectly sums up the magic of football.
