Messi scores best goal of Champions League

The goal of Barcelona player Lionel Messi against Olympique Lyon at the Camp Nou was last week chosen by UEFA as the best goal of last season's Champions League. Iniesta's late equalizer at Stamford Bridge in the semi-final against Chelsea finised second and the free-kick scored by Lyon player Juninho against Barcelona was third.

Messi's against lyon is the best, no doubt about that.
Iniestas is worthy of a second place.
third place should be Essiens goal against Barca imo that was a stunning goal.

I still get chills when I watch it. I was yelling, in happiness. I fell to my knees. If only my dad didn't delete it from my TV, as he also did with the Final.

All three goals are magnificent! Messi's goal is sheer class, but for me Iniesta's goal was that much more special. Iniesta's goal gives me goosebumps everytime. What a wondergoal! Iniesta is outta this world.

These are the best goals according to whom. When you put up something like this, you need to include the source.

How are we not supposed to think that this is done by some random Barcelona fans. Is it a credible source or not?

Incredible goal by Messi.

I must have seen Iniesta's goal a thousand times already. It never gets old. But I still prefer this version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_0aAZQThk0

barcagirl said...

I remember that Goal that Day , i am not going to forget it for the rest of my Life .

Barcelona can win 10 more Champions League , but this one is going to be remembered forever , that's the sweetest one , the loved one , we beat 1 Spanish against 3 English and the way they won the Final that's the Cherry on the Cake .

I remember all my family members were looking at me around 89th minute , and after they scored i found out why they were looking at me so strange , because my face was YELLOW and i almost didn't have EYES at all , so if i was maybe 45-50 year old Hart Attack would've been knocking in my door.

This is the best Day in my Life ...

Messi's goal might be CL's best last season, but Iniesta's goal is the one to remember for years to come. It was the SINGLE most exciting moment of last season. Beats everything else.

That, and Messi's second goal in the first El Classico at the Camp Nou. The way Cannavaro kicked the goal post - priceless!

I cried when Iniesta scored. Loving my club..

Though Essien scored a more technically difficult goal (off the volley with his weaker foot that hit the underside of the crossbar, seriously wtf?) in the same match; it will always be overshadowed by Iniesta's goal given the timing that it was scored.

Funny how simply being in the right place at the right time (I'm not bashing Iniesta's goal here btw, it was beauty) can change everything can't it?

lol it was also Essien that fudged the clearance that led to Iniesta's goal, so he gave back what he took I guess.

Meursault said...

I agree with some of you here re Essien's cracker. As much as I love seeing our guys up on top of this list too, I just can't accept that Essien's goal was not in the top 3. As much as I hate to admit it because I dislike most English teams and Chelsea especially after their post-match whining, Essien is an excellent player and it was in many ways one of the best goals I have ever seen. No preparation, pressure, wrong foot, distance, placement and even the context of the match... sure, not as much as Iniesta's, but still a freak goal like that in a Champions League semi where goals were so scarce, allowing his team to park the bgus afterwards... incredible. To me, it was two freak goals in one unforgettable match, surely Essien's should at least knock Juninho's effort out of the top three. Besides, he deserves at least this accolade after his missed clearance more than 80 minutes later undid his earlier good work.

Iniesta's goal leaves a sour taste in my mouth because we didnt deserve it.
But never mind, it's a great goal and I'm happy he scored it

Boat Forever said...

@Ono
You know you just said crap!?
Watch both the legs of semi-finals again...
1)Henry deserved Penalty in first leg... Second yellow for Bosingwa so he shouldn't play in second leg
2)Ballack deserved his second yellow for foul on Iniesta, he just kicked in his legs while he was on clear goal scoring opportunity... So ballack shouldn't play in second leg
3)Foul of Alex on henry-->second yellow for him as well, so another player shouldn't play in second leg
4)Red card for Abidal!? I mean what the fuck was that!?
5)Only Pique's hand ball was the legitimate penalty appeal in the second leg... Malouda I'd have given yellow for him because he was fouled only outside D and he fell after losing the ball some 5 seconds later!!! Utter cheating; For all Drogba's dives, no one would award a penalty even if it was a legitimate one, he just behaved like a diving machine; So I see only 1 penalty appeal of chelsea to be valid one and since we were robbed one in first leg, we are even.

And we did have our chances in first leg, only we couldn't convert them. Had at least 2 of those beasts I have mentioned not played in second leg, we would have just run riots at Stanford bridge. And had we even been at least awarded that penalty in first leg, chelsea would have had to attack us and we'd have raped them. I see it's us who were most robbed of opportunities than them.

And since I invested so much time to explain all this this and make your crap of a brain understand this, I'd even take this opportunity and call you one pessimistic douchebag for having insulted arguably the greatest goal in Barca's history

@BoatForever
I watched both legs, and as it stands there were more mistakes in our favour. A fact.
We are all Barca fans so we are subjective. There were at least two strong penalty appeals at Stamford Bridge. A fact.
If you say that there was a penalty on Henry then you cannot say that there should of been only one penalty for Chelsea because foul on Henry was as tough as half of Chelsea's penalty appeals. A fact.


"And we did have our chances in first leg, only we couldn't convert them. Had at least 2 of those beasts I have mentioned not played in second leg, we would have just run riots at Stanford bridge. And had we even been at least awarded that penalty in first leg, chelsea would have had to attack us and we'd have raped them. I see it's us who were most robbed of opportunities than them."
Not a fact. An assumption. I dont deal with those.


"And since I invested so much time to explain all this this and make your crap of a brain understand this, I'd even take this opportunity and call you one pessimistic douchebag for having insulted arguably the greatest goal in Barca's history"
No, I did not insult the goal. That goal represents a lot for me and is one of my favourite goals ever. But that does not change the fact that it leaves a sour taste. It is a great goal for all us Barca fans but start talking about it to someone who is not and what do you get? Insults on Barca's expense because like "they stole the game" and stuff. And no matter how big this goal is for Barca the others will never see it as that. That's why it leaves a sour taste. The fact that you can not see that does not change it.

Boat Forever said...

MANY of friends who happen to watch only EPL, because La Liga games start at 1am at our place and some of Barca games at 2:30am, and are neutral were all in praise about Iniesta's goal. None till now, who is a neutral, ever said that we "stole the game" till now. Yeah some of those blues did say that but yeah I can understand their frustration.
For me, I won't be sorry at all for having scored the way we did & the way we went to next level having qualified in the dying moments though as the British media keeps saying Chelsea "dominated" on both legs, I wouldn't give a shit about that. We deserved to qualify for final imo considering their game as how their only aim was to kick the players and not the ball & how we were not given the free-kicks that we should have been given thanks to their ugly foul-play and how they were not penalized in the first leg

Didn't mean to hurt you btw. sorry

vongolaX said...

everybody r worthly fans...onli true fans get goosebumps...let's support ibra!!!

Ono said...

Look, I totally agree that the goal is historic and great (to be honest, I cried when he scored, tears of joy of course (this is gayish :facepalm:))
But, the most people I know were pretty much neutral, they dont care about Barca or Chelsea. And they say that Chelsea was heavily damaged. I dont agree with that, my opinion is that they were damaged a bit more then we were. But the problem is that they had 5 or 6 penalty appeals in one game. And no matter the fact that half of those were complete rubbish it does stick in your head. Six. For me and all of you fans there is no question when you look at the whole picture. But for the neutrales I think it will always be that we didnt deserve it.


PS. I dont want to drag this any further, I expressed my opinion and Im wraping it up, for me at least.

Ono said...

I remembered a thing, to bad I cant edit my post above so I have to write another one.

When Liverpool won CL in 2004, they beat Chelsea in SF. What do you guys remeber from that games? Maybe the controversial goal?
The same thing here, non Barca fans will always first think of these penalty appeals

Messiiiiiiiiiiiii said...

one thing I've learned from watching CL for years is that every team needs luck(a heck of it) to win it. A fact.

look at liverpool in 2005: first they should have lost to chelsea in semi finals but the ref counted the goal that never was! then they somehow came back from 3-0 down gainst milan who really deserved to win.

Barca in 2006: we were a little lucky against milan and then arsenal for the sending off and 2 late goals but not much luck in this one :)

Milan in 2007: lucky goal in the final deflected freekick.

Manchester Utd in 2008: the final everybody saw...

Barca in 2009: lucky against chelsea. (but we deserved to go through over the 2 legs we played football).
