Goals of the Weekend

13 Sep

Technique. Technique. Technique. You couldn’t help but notice the overriding theme of the best goals from this past weekend. Whereas power and fury normally characterize such goals, a different type of skill was utilized. For those who can appreciate individual brilliance and tidy footwork, sit back and enjoy. Everyone else, go lift weights.

You will be hard pressed to find a better goal than this. In fact, you won’t. It’s the goal of the weekend. From Aguero’s ability to beat two men, to Simão’s lay-off. And Forlan’s finish? Clinical of course.

A splendid half volley from West Ham’s Scott Parker. The only bright spot on a miserable day against Chelsea.

Count ’em. 23 passes strung together by the Arsenal before a perfectly lofted pass by Fàbregas to Vela for the finish. (apologies for the poor quality)

Cassano’s second for Sampdoria was a perfect give-and-go. His run is met by a perfect chipped pass for Cassano to bang home.

The lone exception: Porto vs Braga. A 3-2 victory for Porto, with each of the five goals oozing power, class, and technique.
