Goal of the season
Sean Galea-Pace – I’ll go with Jonny Howson’s against Stoke for sheer quality. It was a brilliant strike in a game which sadly ended in defeat, honourable mentions would be Mbokani’s backheel against Liverpool and Nathan Redmond against West Ham at the start of the season were good goals too.
Daniel Emery – Mbokani back-heel vs Liverpool. Went for the one I saw live which is why I haven’t gone for Howson. It was a sublime bit of skill and probably the best goal I’ve seen live for Norwich.
Jacob Sinkins – Howson v Stoke. Great moment in an otherwise depressing game
Callum Sheridan – Howson vs Stoke, an amazing goal from distance, pure class in the strike.
Emma James – Howson goal vs Stoke – okay, City lost but after going down to 10 men, the cross from Wes Hoolahan meeting Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe’s chest, before Howson caught it on the half-volley from outside the box, unable to take his time with the ball, he still ensured the ball met the top left-hand corner. Brilliant strike from the midfielder. Also, a fan of Brady’s against West Ham but Howson’s got to win it.
Matt Wastell – My goal of the season was Mbokani vs Watford, it was brilliant build up play and Redmond brilliantly slid him through before unerringly chipping the keeper.
James Kerridge – Howson’s goal against Stoke was an absolute banger into the corner, tying the scores level.
Luke Keeler – Seb Bassong V Liverpool. A game that quite possibly defined our season: when Seb’s sweet strike flew from his improbable left boot into the bottom right corner of Mignolet’s already battered goal, it appeared we had saved the game and spared our blushes; and with that, Carrow Road erupted.
Given the situation it was scored in, how brilliant a strike it was and from such an unusual source, it was by far the most enjoyable goal of my season. Seb may have struggled at points this season but it can’t be denied; when a clumsy left boot delivers such a sublime goal that truly raises the roof, it has to be applauded: even if his mistakes are one of many reasons the Championship welcomes us back next year.
