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.

When Monday Comes #37 by wessex_exile
When Saturday Comes and we reach the end of a topsy-turvy season, much of which hasn’t been that much fun if I’m honest, though latterly considerably improved under Wayne Brown. If I can, I always like to do the first and last game of the season, but sadly a trip to Hartlepool just wasn’t on the cards, not if I actually wanted to get home again tonight, so I had to console myself with a pretty enjoyable trip to the JobServe last weekend – not quite the victory the U’s deserved over Walsall, but a great day out anyway. I know it’ll be too late for the Player of the Year awards, but wouldn’t it be nice to see a Freddie Sears hat-trick this afternoon to round off the season.

When Saturday Comes tomorrow, and I will be on a train heading over to God’s own county for my last U’s game of the season. That should have been last Friday’s trip to the Principality, but as posted elsewhere I was more than happy to be pre-booked to dog-sit Emma’s collie Reggie that night and had to be content with one of Nadine’s ‘downstreams’ on iFollow. Given both the performance and the result, whilst I was sorry to miss it in person, I was more than happy with how Friday night turned out in the end. Tomorrow will be a gathering of the clans for us, with at the last count at least 8, possibly more, of the family gathering for the match. Ironically, I’ll see them all again on Bank Holiday Monday for a family birthday, but I’ll be driving over for that one.

When Saturday Comes and the U’s have already given us a fantastic start to the weekend, with a stirring and well-deserved 2-1 victory at promotion-chasing Newport County. Yes, the Exiles had lost the previous three at home and are looking like they are going to bottle their chance for the play-offs, and yes with the U’s now safe technically we had little to play for, but don’t take anything away from this performance. If Wayne Brown is still being ‘interviewed’ for the full-time role as Colchester United manager, then last night was the equivalent of having an excellent incisive question of your own lined up for the interview panel.

When Saturday Comes and our Easter Bank Holiday programme is already underway, following a dismal 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park yesterday. It’s not so much the result that galls, in truth deep down I suspect we all thought it was going to be a difficult trip to get anything out of, it was the manner of that defeat. To say the U’s were lacklustre is a massive understatement – and it wasn’t as if it was down to Exeter City simply outplaying us, I didn’t think they were all that to be honest. I can cope with defeat, heaven knows the U’s have given me enough practice in recent years, but to go down without a whimper, relying on Man of the Match Sham to keep it from becoming a cricket score against an average Exeter City, was just dreadful.

When Saturday Comes and there was a time, not too long ago, when today’s game against the charmless Steve Evans and Stevenage was looking like it might be a relegation 6-pointer. Whilst we’re not out of the woods quite yet, back-to-back victories over Tranmere Rovers and Harrogate mean we go into this game knowing even if we were to slip up against Stevenage, we’ll still be 8pts plus goal difference ahead of them, and only five games left to play. Still, let’s not dwell on negatives, because three wins on the bounce will be the confidence-booster we’ll need ahead of the tough trip on Good Friday to St James’ Park.
