Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week 2/23/2015

5. Marwin Hitz vs Leverkusen A goalie goal is a rare and beautiful thing. Like a unicorn or a unhate-able Kardashian. In this case, Marwin Hitz the ball (sorry, that pun needed to happen) to level the game in the dying minutes. 4. Badetimbi Gomis (via Jonjo Shelvey) vs Manchester United This goal might have […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week 2/16/2015

5. Daniel Sturridge vs Crystal Palace Daniel Sturridge continues to show just what Liverpool were missing while he was hurt. A real goal poacher’s effort, a lot of credit needs to go to Jordan Henderson for serving this goal up on a platter for Sturridge with a great cross into the box. Sturridge happily obliges, […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week 2/9/2015

5. Daley Blind vs West Ham United This late goal saved a vital point for Manchester United and it required a great follow up and a wonderful volley from Daley Blind. 4. Leo Messi vs Athletic Bilbao This free kick goal from Messi shows just why he is considered the best player in the world. […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week of 2/2/2015

5. Hector Bellerin vs Aston Villa This is a classic “worm burner” goal. Extremely pacey shot flat along the ground. It needed to be a pacey shot, because it somehow finds it’s way past everybody in the penalty box and past the Villa keeper. 4. Daniel Sturrdige vs West Ham United After an injury blighted […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week of 1/26/2015

5. Kenny McLean vs Dundee This goal is very straight forward. There’s a great little through ball, finding Kenny McLean outside the area. McLean then dribbles through 3 Dundee defenders and cracks a shot past the keeper. Straight forward, but beautiful. 4. Tomas Rosicky vs Brighton Hove Albion I love a good volleyed goal. This […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week of 1/19/2015

5. Stewart Downing vs Hull Stewart Downing has really become a different player at West Ham since his move from Liverpool. Here we have a magnificent through ball from loanee Alex Song that finds the on-rushing Downing. After receiving the ball, Downing coolly slots it past Hull’s keeper and into the goal.   4. Gonzalo […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week of 1/12/2015

Here are the goals of the weekend. 5. Oscar vs Newcastle I love a good choreographed corner strategy. This goal is quickly taken and completely catches Newcastle off-guard.   4. Andy Carroll vs Swansea If Big Andy scored more goals like this, he would probably be at Liverpool still. Fortunately for Hammers fans, he’s moved […]

Oh You Beauty!: Goals of the Week 12/23

5. Martin Skrtel vs Arsenal This thunderbolt of a header saved a vital point for Liverpool. Something we’ve come to expect from Martin Skrtel after last season.   4. Alexandre Lacazette vs Bordeaux What a season Alexandre Lacazette is having. Seventeen goals in nineteen appearances so far. On a side note, how cool is the […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top Goals of the Midweek 12/18

5. Lazar Markovic vs Bournemouth Lazar Markovic’s first goal for Liverpool. A young player with a lot of promise, Markovic has yet to fully justify his price tag. Having said that, if he keeps this up, he certainly will in no time.   4. Isco vs Almeria Isco is such a talented player, and he […]

Oh You Beauty! Top 5 Goals of the Week 12/15

5. Wayne Rooney vs Liverpool This is a tough one to write on. The defense is just really poor, as Coutinho should have covered Rooney and not allowed the shot. That shouldn’t take anything away from the shot itself, though, as Rooney hit it with pace and precision. He even sends Brad Jones the wrong […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top Goals of the Midweek of 12/11

5. Davy Klaassen vs APOEL Nicosia What else would you expect from an Ajax player? Total football is in their blood. Ricardo Kishna’s dribbling to set up this goal is simply magnificent and makes the APOEL Nicosia defenders look like fools.   4. Maurice Kuhn vs FC Iserlohn Who said there weren’t any beautiful goals to […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top Goals of the Week of 12/8

5. Haris Seferovic vs Werder Bremen First and foremost, credit to Haris Seferovic for puling his leg back when he saw the keeper coming in the claim the ball. Some people will say he should have gone for it anyway, but that would have been a cleat to rib cage collision, which nobody wants to […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Midweek! 12/4/2014

5. Jordan Henderson vs Leicester City The quality of this goal comes from the ability Raheem Sterling shows to stay onside against the offside trap and the awareness he demonstrates to know Jordan Henderson had followed up the initial pass. Henderson does a great job keeping his cool and blasts the ball past the depleted Leicester […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 12/1/2014

5. Andrea Pirlo vs Torino The living legend graces us with this pearl of a first time strike from outside the box. It was laid on a plate for him, and he ate the chance up. The defense will be shaking their head, as they should have closed that down before he got the shot off. […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 11/20/2014

This week’s Oh You Beauty has a decidedly international flavor about it, given the club break this week. The international break can sometimes be a bit of a snooze-fest for many watching, with many of the players more focused on not getting hurt than winning the game. That wasn’t the case this past week, though, […]
