Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 11/10/2014

5. Demba Ba vs Istanbul Basaksehir Now, I’m not going to say this is the fastest or hardest hit goal ever scored. That was scored by Sporting Lisbon’s defender, Ronny, which reached speeds of 131 mph. Look it up, you can barely see it. That being said, this ball was moving at 77 mph, which would […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 11/03/2014

5. Oscar vs QPR Your browser does not support iframes. This is simply the best angle to really appreciate how good this goal is. Not only is it an outside of the foot shot, but it had to loop around the keeper at an almost impossible angle. To do that first time is simply incredible. […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 10/27/2014

1. Muhamed Keita vs. Gornik Leczna This is really a wonder strike. The precision required on that hit was nothing short of world class. This is a goal that Keita will remember for the rest of his career.   2. Manuel Fernandes vs. Spartak You can accuse Spartak of slack defending here, but that shouldn’t take […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 10/19/2014

1) Xabi Alonso vs. Werder Bremen Probably 95% of free kick goals are a result of someone shooting the ball over the wall and into the goal. This free kick defied logic and Xabi Alonso decided to go under the wall to trick everyone and get the goal. Bayern Munich went on to defeat Werder […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 10/6/2014

1) Leonardo Bonucci vs. Roma The two best teams in Serie A faced off and the game didn’t disappoint. Many, including me, expected a low scoring affair considering that in 10 games between both teams this season, only a single goal has been allowed. What happened was a goal fest that ended with fireworks. With […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 9/29/2014

1) Graziano Pelle vs. QPR There aren’t too many things better than a perfectly executed bicycle kick. Graziano Pelle gave Southampton the lead by volleying it to himself and then in pure FIFA video game action, bicycled it into the back of the net. Definitely an artistic display and is a candidate for goal of […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 9/22/2014

1) Moritz Stoppelkamp vs Hannover 96 Wow. When a 50 yard goal is scored, such as the famous Xabi Alonso goal against Newcastle from a few years ago, people tend to remember that. This one is a solid 89 yards long. That kind of a goal doesn’t happen in FIFA. That’s a goal that will […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 5 Goals of the Week 9/15/2014

1) Jeremy Menez vs. Parma This goal is just something special. Not only does Jeremy Menez beat the keeper like he wasn’t even there, he finishes the move off with a wonderful backheel. Cheeky. It’s a magnificent goal, through and through, and thoroughly deserving of this week’s top spot.   2) Alexis Sanchez vs. Manchester […]

Oh You Beauty!: Top 10 Goals From this Weekend

1. Wayne Routledge vs. West Brom Routledge Goal What a hit, son. What a hit. ‘Nuff said.   2. Diego Costa vs. Everton, 89th min Costa Goal 89th Min It wasn’t just the backheel pass from John Obi Mikel that lands this goal so high, although it helps. It was Costa’s stuttered stepover that put […]
