Bergkamp Scores Arsenal's Greatest Goal Ever

Bergkamp Scores Arsenal's Greatest Goal Ever

All summer Arsenal.com has been counting down the best 50 goals scored by the Gunners. It has been a treat to watch throughout the summer, and the order of the 50 has sparked some good debate. But the top three was always going to be pretty clear. This is how they went:

3. van Persie's leaping volley against Charlton in 2006
2. Henry's turn and volley versus United in 2000
1. Dennis Bergkamp's magic spin against Newcastle

Here is a clip of the greatest Arsenal goal ever courtesy of the Iceman, Dennis Bergkamp. (Apologies about the quality. YouTube has shut down most of the best videos)



Brilliant. Honestly, with your back to goal and a defender right on, who would think of THAT?!?

I certainly can't think of better. I'd have probably had Bergkamp's goal against Leicester at number 2. A shame there isn't any footage of the team of the 30s, I bet they scored some corkers in their time.

Just a beautiful piece of football. I love the way that the 3 legendary players involved are doing exactly what they are remembered most for. PV4 winning it back, passing it on and driving forward; DB10 calmly spraying a ball to RP7 and making a great run on the blind side of Newcastle's defence; RP7 holding it up play waiting for options whilst still driving forward, before playing it through to DB10; and DB10... well... doing that!

I still say Henry's backheel against Charlton was my favourite, for sheer audacity and determination. In the circumstances, with his back to goal and defenders all over him, he had no right to score. Fantastic. Will tell my grandchildren about it.

I probably would have van Persie's volley at number two. The leap and control leaves me speechless every time. His right foot is up by the defender's head!

I can't argue against Bergy's goal vs Newcastle being voted the greatest goal of all time nevermind just for Arsenal. You just can't do things like that, it's not possible.

For me TH14's goal at Highbury against Spuds is the best goal. However, DB10 is imo, THE greatest Arsenal player ever.

I always find it strange when these greatest ever polls are announced that no-one can seem to remember longer then the last 10 years. Having said that the Bergkamp goal was a bit special. Can'e believe that Van Persis shin got number 3...

I hate to over-use the word 'genius' but you just know it when you see one.

The speed of thought allied to the ability to pull it off is what is extrodinary about this goal, its number 1 for me.

Eduardo's against brunley for me, but Bergie's is a very close second.
