Great goal but where was the defence? No way would you have that time and space in the Championship!
Barnes goal for Burnley v West Brom was arguably better than the Ronaldo effort because he had to go backwards and readjust his body position much more. But then of course Burnley is seen as much less glamorous than Real Madrid. It's always the case that the media pundits go over the top in how they fawn over the very top players. A bit cringeworthy.
What about Billy Sharps overhead kick this season for Sheffield United, surely worth a mention?
Sorry to repeat myself, but I remember two things of the first time I saw Ronnie play for United--1. how utterly obvious it was to any spectator with a modicum of sense that young Ronnie was a true great in the making; and 2. how blinded Alan Green was by his hatred of United that all he could do from the commentary box was scorn Ronnie for his occasional mistakes and delight in calling him Bambi.
That is a world class player!
Amazing goal, but he's still a ballbag....
@688Agree with what you say.It was a nice goal, but Juventus just left him to stand there alone and unchallenged. "All" that he then had to go was execute the kick with nobody interfering.I think that goals where a player has to beat several opposition players who are challenging the goalscorer are much more impressive.
So, Man Utd have the voting power, but none of these goals will ever better Trevor Sinclair's. No Justice.
Barnes goal for Burnley was just as good at the weekend
I am astounded at the reaction to this rather simple goal. Anyone would think it was the first time anyone had done this. Even I have scored a goal like that - a long time ago though!
@Jericho. An average player in the PL couldn't score a goal like Ronaldo's bicycle kick.
Born and Bred We did beat Liverpool tho so where does that fit in with your equation ????
