In the four EPL games that Fox Soccer Channel televised this weekend, viewers witnessed 15 goals – an average of 3.75 per game! Who said the EPL was boring?
Not only were the number of goals impressive but the sheer quality was astounding. In three out of the four games, we have the following contenders for goal of the season:
– Van Nistelrooy’s volley against Charlton (and sublime run by Rooney)
– Henry’s precise long-range free kick against Wigan
– Nathan Ellington’s twist and turn, followed by the shot that sneaked the ball inside the post
In highlights of the Middlesbrough v Fulham match and Boro’s incredible comeback (ditto to the Hammers too), Collins John’s goal for Fulham was a superb piece of skill, lofting the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and into the far corner. Another candidate for goal of the season perhaps?
