The 500 Great Goals Collection
Win Your Own Copy Courtesy of RedRants

Goals! Who doesn’t enjoy sitting down to watch goals, goals and more goals?

I was recently priveleged enough to be given the opportunity to do just that with The 500 Great Goals Collection DVD which is released tomorrow.

From technically perfect volley’s performed by Marco van Basten, Wayne Rooney, Zinedine Zidane and Paul Scholes to unbelievably cute chips by Ruud Gullit, Dalian Atkinson, George Best and Eric Cantona – for over four hours this collection takes you on a trip through the archives that won’t disappoint.

Starting with no less than Pele in the 1958 World Cup Finals the footage takes you on a journey in no particular order. It’s not a chronological rundown of one mans favourite goals but a look back at goals scored in various competitions around the world using various skills, tricks, powers and improvisations until it reaches it’s finale with a strike from (the boy who kisses his badge on his chest before submitting a transfer request) Steven Gerrard in the Champions League.

Interviews aplenty with Pele, Marco Van Basten, Ruud Gullit, Bobby Charlton, Terry Venables, Sir Alex Ferguson and Carlos Alberto all recalling great strikes from some of the greatest players to have ever graced the field of football, goals that span over six decades, many of which will live long in the memory of anyone lucky enough to witness them.

Settle down with this 5 disc boxset each with its own magnificent array of tremendous goals. One thing’s for sure while you watch this collection, you’ll be reminded of many classics you haven’t seen or thought about in years, you’ll marvel at the dribbling skills of Maradona, Messi, Ronaldo and David Ginola, raise eyebrows at the cheeky improvisation used by Graphite, Zola and Gazza. Famous freekicks from Riquelme, Cristiano Ronaldo and David beckham with bullet strikes from Socrates, Geovanni and Martin Petrov will have you reaching for the rewind button!

    Well, for me the goal that made me scream the most was the fanastic bicycle kick from Wayne Rooney against rivals, Man City. Wonderful Goal!

    Ryan Giggs Vs Arsenal FA Cup Replay 1999. Arsenal back four was a renowned defensive beast. Ryan Giggs comprehensively tore them to shreds with “that goal”

    THE greatest goal of ALL TIME. That’s an impossible and unfair task for a mere human. Anyone who talks about goals in the last 2-3 years being the greatest ever has not seen enough football.

    Cantona’s chip beauty, Maradona’s solo goal against England, Giggs’ solo goal against Arsenal, Van Basten’s goal for Holland, Roberto Carlos’ freekick against France, Ronaldo’s free-kick against Portsmouth, Rooney’s over-head Kick, and then there’s Zidane, Frank Rijkaard, Ruud Gullit, Klinsmann, Rudi Völler, Romario, George Best, and many more legends of the game who scored wonderful goal. To pick just one and claim it to be THE BEST is an act of sheer folly!!

    However, in the spirit of Red Rants’ competition, I think that the goal I can watch over and over and still gives me the goosebumps is Cantona’s chip:
    Just outrageously captures Cantona’s persona. Maradona’s and Giggs’ solo-runs were fantastic too.

    PS: To anyone claiming Rooney’s overhead kick is world best goal, have not seen Van Basten: — Finish is out of this world. — most famous goal ever in Euros, I think.

    The most beautiful and fantastic goal for me is Rooney’s Work of Art, the Bicycle Kick. It was just superb. Rooney’s bicycle shut our noisy neighbor up.

    Apropos great players, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes came out and stated:

    “They watched him nine or ten times, and when everything seemed decided, then Manchester United played at the inauguration of the Alvaladze Stadium (Sporting Lisbon) and the players themselves urged Ferguson to buy him”

    Doesn’t that contradict Fergie’s (autobiographical?) statements about the Sporting Lisbon game?

    No way i can even think of THE BEST GOAL ever. Some from Ronaldinho, Romario, Fat Ronaldo, CR, Messi and all the special United goals (notable ones Scholesy against Villa and Barca, Giggsy specials, Berbaspecials, screamers from Nani, Rooney volley and overhead kick, Cantona against the dippers, and of course Georgie Best). As you can see too many to make a choice. Apart from these, one of my all time favourites is

    Roberto Carlos’s goal is the best for me. How can he possibly score from the cross line. He is insane and God !!!

    Agree with above, Roberto Carlos is God. Remember the insane free kick that could not be saved by Fabien Barthez.. The curl, power and the confusion…
