In the fanzine this term we have been counting down the top 20 goals at the Liberty to mark a decade at our current home. Over the next few weeks we will countdown one per day accompanied with a video of the scorer where possible. Toda’ys goal is a brilliant team goal but you’ll have to take our word for it, we couldn’t find a video sadly!
No. 6 Jonathan De Guzman v Stoke, January 2013
Steven Gerrard described this as one of the goals of the 2012/3 season on Sky Sports’ “Goals on Sunday” the following day and it’s difficult to argue with that assessment. Wayne Routledge laid the ball off to Angel Rangel who back heeled the ball back to him, Routledge then made a thirty yard pass to Danny Graham whose delightful one touch pass on the volley was perfect for De Guzman to run onto and the Netherlands International took one touch before burying his shot in the goalkeepers bottom right hand corner. You’d have to go a long way to find a team goal as good as that.
