Best Wednesday Goal

Recommended Posts

Di canio away at everton in last minute in about 1997 1998, think we won 3 v1, got it jus inside own half took a couple defenders on then gave keeper the spaghetti legs, he fell one way paolo took it the other way to run it in the net and nearly gettin clattered by a defender running in, then to top it off celebrated in front of the wednesday fans

gary bannister away at oldham 81 i think. corner came over and was headed out and bannister volleyed it in from about 20yrds. u wont see a cleaner strike than that

Are you sure it was Bannister, sounds very similar to the Sterland one I referred to earlier in the thread. It was 83/84 season and Goram literally never saw it. We won 3-1 (Shelton and Bannister got the others). He did something similar (though not quite as good) the following week at Hillsborough v Blackburn (we won 4-2)

Brian Hornsby at Millmoor '79 I think

Whelans at Cardiff was a sweet strike too

Have to say Harkes who score the memorable goal at Derby. The Goal won goal of the season and was one of the few occasions that Wednesday was on equal term with the big clubs.

happy time as we went on to be promoted and won the cup.

^^^^^ this

best thing about it is it's on YouTube , never get bored of watching it

Carlton palmer scored a great goal away at Ipswich a few years back.

I was there for both of them. Hornsby's was a really sweet volley from just outside the box in front of the Tivoli (not sure if it wasn't 77 or 78 though), and all four goals at Cardiff that day were priceless. I came over from Jersey for that one and it cost me an absolute fortune just in phone calls (almost 40 quid, I'd called on my mobile and had to wait over an hour to get through the switchboard was jammed!) just to get the darn ticket.!

that was a cracking goal of sterlands, i believe it was on match of the day as well, i remember bannister scoring a screamer in that game but it was disallowed.

If it was on Match of the Day, then I have to get a copy! Presumably must be somewhere on You Tube as well?

Agreed. Definitely the stand out goal for me

I know Hirst scored a lot of great goals but the one at Southhamton were we had a shot keeper saved and it fell to Hirst on the edge of the box and he hit it first time and nearly broke the net

That Hirsty screamer was on my list as well - was a million x better "in the flesh" than it ever appeared on TV though

Another one is Shezza's goal (the 4th) in the "Palmer hattrick" game against QPR - superb move and absolutely sublime finish.

Another Hirsty - against Man City at home when he ran from the halfway line and a posse of City defenders trailed in his wake til he smashed the ball home.

Bright's Volley at Selhurst against Wmbledon in the league cup

Ante Mirocevic against Notts County sticks in my mind - we lost 1-2 at Hillsborough

Peter Rodrigues (Yes i fvckin' know how old I am!)...forget who it was against (Luton?)...very similar to Sterlands when he ran up the right against Arsenal

Well he ...sorta ran up the right...and leathered it into the net at the Lepp end....very similar to....

Ian Mellor, Boxing Day 1979. Great goal, but best ever just because of what happened in the second half.
