Your Personal Goal Of The Season
Your Personal Goal Of The Season
Monday, 14th May 2012 16:16

The official club award for goal of the season went to Tadanari Lee for his strike against Derby County, but what was everyones favourite and for what different reasons.

Goals of the season usually have some of the following ingredients in them, individual run, slick passing movement and blistering shot from distance, Tadanari Lee's effort certainly had the latter as it zoomed in from distance, but as great as it was, was it really the goal of the season when we way up a few other things, like importance of the goal or various other reasons.

Of course there will be those who still pick Tadanari Lee, but personally as great as the goal was, I have to say i enjoyed a lot of our other goals more for many reasons, Rickie Lambert's header at Fratton Park, David Connolly's winner at Barnsley, Lambert's winner at Leeds, or both his goals at Palace come to that, then there is Billy Sharp, his goals were rarely spectacular, but they were vital, I cant think i enjoyed a Saints goal more than either his 2nd against Pompey that for a brief minute looked like it had robbed them of a draw and then his deft touch for the first against Coventry that truly made us all realise we were on the road back to the Premier and their would be no slip ups.

So with no offence intended to Tadanari Lee who definately hit one of the most stunning of the season, what goal was your personal favourite and for what reasons, not necessarily footballing ones either, perhaps there was one on your birthday or it was your son/daughters first ever game, lets see a view views and opinions down below to remind us all about some of the seasons great moments, remember there is no right or wrong answer on this one, just pure enjoyment of some great goals.

I'll go with TL's goal for sentimental reasons but for me the most pleasing was against Middlesbrough, brilliant cross from Danny Butterfield into the box on to Guly's head for a header, great team goal, it was a great cross well stuck away.

Rickie Lambert away to Derby, demonstrating why he deserves a place in the Premier League.

Also, Lallana’s goal again Ipswich because that was a superb game and Schneiderlin’s assist was sublime!

Nick, I was out of breath reading your second paragraph, as it was one whole sentence. Also, for the future, there is definitely no 'a' in 'definately'!

Re the goals, I don't know how many Lambert scored from free kicks, but I guess not so many as in his first season. Admittedly, he tries to vary it with chipped passes to colleagues.

Both RL's goals at Ipswich were classy. The built up, interchanging and finishes were of the highest order. Tadanari's was strike of the season!

David Connolly after the 26 pass move for me

I know it was a long time ago now but Dean Hammonds opener against Leeds was a very rear treat, but a cracking goal none the less

Mine would definately be David Connolly's home against Middlesborough after the 26 pass move. I never get tired of watching this time and again on Saints Player. Indeed this was probably our best performance of the season. The way Rickie jinked round the defender to for the final pass making the defenders all look stupid was class. It was a joy to watch from the Chapel.

I'm with Winchester. Hammond's goal against Leeds set the tone for the season. After that goal and that game I thought "we look a pretty good team..."

The goal against Barnsley was also memorable given that we got our away wins off to a start. Another early positive sign.
