I think the Berkamp goal was in part fluke as Dabizas could have won the ball.

This question, for me, is almost impossible to answer because you have to take many permutations into equation.

For pure skill, id love to know of a better goal than the one Ginola set up for himself for that volley against Ferencvaros in Europe. Yes ive seen hundreds of World class goals at St James' over the years with some meaning more than others but remembering that moment when Ginola did that was one of the only times ive been rendered speechless by what should have been a moment of glory or celebration.

It was a real moment of speechlessness.

Seen it live. Was aged 12 in the Gallowgate scoreboard and still dont know how he chipped Corrigan.

Still behind Ginola for me on a personal level.

Fair enough, could have named many.

Gazza v Chelsea, beat two, turned and did it again.

Just seen your post,aye you're right & it is subjective.
Ginola 2nd,Tino & the way he hung in the air.Mi top three.
It could change in a few days time

There's no way the snidely Dutch twat meant that, he miscontrolled it in the first place and happened to be up against a shite defender.

Shearers volley against Everton off the top of my head. Also remember being stood in the Leazes Boxing Day to see a David Kelly cracker, I think against Wolves.

I was there for the Ginola goal .. knew from the moment it left his boot it was destined for the net.
Same as Gaza's ..think it was against palace

Another that sticks out is ages ago standing in the leazes end near bonfire night trailing to boro coming back with a real late rally ... fireworks going off into the night sky .. halcyon days

Far too many to single out but either Laurent Robert's goals against spurs but what about that strange overhead scorpion backheel kick he scored at St James's? Can't remember who it was against tho.

Amusing how none of the usual suspects are able to contribute to this thread.

They must have been on a 40 year "boycott".

Was there for that Gazza goal if it was against Palace in the FA Cup. Went right in the top corner from 30 yards and stuck in the stanchion for a couple of seconds before dropping. The only thing that spoiled it was the jump up and slap hand celebration with John Cornwell. A freezing day that was.

Gazza missed a 1 on 1 in the second half though where he curled wide when it was easier to score, so we were worthy winners. The next round against Swindon when we hammered them had me thinking we could win the cup. How wrong I was..

I don't ever remember playing Palace in the cup, or Pardew scoring.

Pardew didn’t ‘score’., and his team went out. Almost as good as Gazza’s peach.

Was back when we 'hired' the extra seating from Brands Hatch or Silverstone for the Leazes end when the old West Stand was being replaced by the smaller version of the Milburn stand

I think the greatest volume of great goals I saw, was in the period from Keegan's first time as manager, for a period of 3 years, there were hardly any tap ins, they were all worldies.

His favourite method was to concentrate play on say LHS, drag all of the opposition over, then quickly switch play to a runner on RHS, by which time 10 of our players were in the box.

It was fucking great....

Magical to watch.

Sadly never got the trophy the football deserved.

Manure were just such the dominant force at the time.

Mark McGhee's gotto be up there with his last minute winner again Bradford. Ben Arfa against Bolton was another favourite s well as Shearer (Everton), Robert (Spurs) and Tino's third against Barca.

Was in the corner, he seemed to beat about 3 defenders before side footing into the Leazes net.

Absolute dire game against Bradford that, so much so I was on my way down the stairs outside the Gallowgste end when I heard the noise, much to the amusement of the lads giving it the wanker sign at the back of the stand to those leaving early. Couldn't believe how good it was when I saw it on the telly, bastard.

McGhee scored the winner in a 4-3 game against Leicester which was a cracker. After being 1-3 down it was a remarkable comeback. McGhee seemed to have the ball stuck to his feet the way he waltzed passed the defence. As for the best goal I've seen us score, well if it rescues a point or it's the winner then I'll say that one. Too many to pick from to chose just one.

You sure that wasn't the 5-4 game, having been 2-4 down, Mac? Or is that a different game altogether? Memory may be playing tricks.

Malcolm Macdonald against Aston Villain the 70's got the ball at the halfway line and sprinted past the defenders before unleashing a thunderbolt, was kid at the time and I remember the pure joy when it went in and thinking I want to do that one day, whenever I think of great goals thats the one that springs to mind.

You're quite right Neppos, it was the 5-4 game. 55 years of memories. I can remember a 5-2 against Leicester when they had a teenage Lineker playing up front.

Can anyone find the Varadi goal against Charlton or Tommy Cassidy in the 1980 New Year goal?

The closest I can find to that is:

Cassidy had a few of those.

The Keegan era saw the best football and some of the best goals ever scored at St James. But like a few others on here, it's often those that hark back to your youth which stick in your mind. My own was from Tommy Craig. It was a humdinger from way outside the box firing in to the Gallogate End. It was the full bullet, mighty strike, leaving the ground, ball rocketing through every player and bulging the net. Really though, it was the look of absolute delight on Tommy's face as he wheeled round to celebrate the goal.

Now, which match? I had to hunt about for facts but it's October 1976 and I think it was against Birmingham (3-2). Probably one of my favourite seasons. Very eventful. Supermac was gone out of the scene and we had Alan Gowling, plodding forever at No.9. Gordon Lee both inspired then deserted the club at a critical point. League Cup finalists but lost to Man City. Overall, we finished 5th.

There's been wonderful ups and downs since, many remembered above, but the romance of youth has Tommy's effort, no doubt tinged with rose-coloured memory goggles, as my stand out goal.

Up until Ginola, I used to have high regard for a Terry McDermott volley v Liverpool in the Keegan farewell game. Was in the corner near the little wooden kiosk for that one as it flew in and pandemonium ensued.
