    Thanks to all who submitted goals. :clap:

    You have 1 week to vote, let the voting begin. :thumbsup:

    Sorry if yours didn't get chosen, i've just chose what i though was the best 10.
    Maybe a different person could choose the 10 each month?
    Or maybe the winner of each month gets to choose the 10 for the next month?

    Closing time for votes is Mon 8th Feb 10am.


    January Goal Of The Month:


    Goal 1 - EA SPORTS™ Football World - COBH RAMBLERS - ST. PATRICK'S 0 - 8

    Goal 2 - EA SPORTS World - TURKEY - PORTUGAL 0 - 3

    Goal 3 - EA SPORTS World - MANCHESTER UTD - YEOVIL TOWN 1 - 0

    Goal 4 - EA SPORTS World - NORWICH CITY - COLCHESTER 0 - 3

    Goal 5 - EA SPORTS™ Football World - BARCELONA - ARSENAL 1 - 0

    Goal 6 - EA SPORTS World - MANCHESTER UTD - LIVERPOOL 1 - 0

    Goal 7 - EA SPORTS™ Football World - Ronaldo curls in a free kick from the edge of the area

    Goal 8 - EA SPORTS World - ARSENAL - MIDDLESBROUGH 2 - 0

    can we also have a gentlemans agreement that we don't vote for our own submissions? Making the voting public could make sure this is upheld.

    :( No goal of mine....

    Anyhow, goal number 9 (Milan) gets my vote narrowly ahead of the Colchester effort. :)

    i voted for number 5, i know how hard it is to get a volley on target so this was quite an achievement

    runner up for me is number 1, another brilliant volley, but taking into account the quality of the defenders and keeper it lost a few points - still quality though

    We want as many votes as possible, so promote the thread guys.

    Only fair you make the short list as you set up the idea in the first place.

    Though I like the idea of letting the winner choose the short list for future months.

    Totally with you their Marc on the gentleman's agreement, not that I would have voted for myself anyway as it just wouldn't feel right (oh and I didn't have an entry in the top 10 :) )

    I wouldn't take it personally mate, since your advice on how to do them, everyone is at it, you should have held off telling us how to score from set pieces for a couple of weeks :D

    Some good goals on the list there! I'm a bit dissapointed mine didn't make the cut, especially being a nice first time chip rather than the samey smash it from 30 yards kinda goals but somebody needed to cut the list down.

    Anyway I've got a new goal to add to the Feb goal of the month comp so hopefully I'll make the cut next time:)

    Congrats to all the guys who entered the January competition, there were some very good goals added over the month and I'm hoping to see more of them this month too:D

    Shouldn't that be Monday 9th Feb?

    Great volleys there at 1 and 9 but technically 9 was offside :D

    Given that all I can do from free kicks is hit the woodwork I'm voting for Marc' curler as I appreciate the skill involved in getting the power and curl right. A shame you never got to enter enter that 40 yarder though as that was even better imho :eek:

    which one? no offense meant but i thought the ones you submitted all looked fairly normal goals (and even on world class i am winning games by 5 goals and above most matches) but i may have missed one!

    Perhaps we should do an all-time FIFA 09 comp next summer before the next one is out, I'm sure that 40 yard strike will be a contender for Goal of the Year! Though now you've told everyone else how to do it we might see a few more like that, hopefully from me :rotfl:

    my main problem with long shots is actually getting the space to take the shot! seem to have defenders diving in at my feet any time i get within 30 yards of goal! suppose its the way it should be but it'd be nice to have some space occasionally!

    how sad is it that in my manager mode ive taken to banging in 2 or 3 early goals, then spent the next hour of the match trying to score from 30+ yards.. still haven't bloody managed it though!

    I've gone for 1.

    I would have gone for 9, except it was offside wasn't it?

    I'm pleased my effort made the top ten (at number 10), even though it is not a patch on most of them!

    i just scored a great goal, unfortunately the actual goal part wasnt particularly impressive so i didnt upload it, but now i wish i did..

    fabregas passes to carrick in midfield, carrick jumps in the air and backheels it to rooney, rooney plays it to berbatov, berbatov backheels it through the middle of the two centre backs, rooney runs onto it and shoots high into the net.

    sounds good
    ive scored alot of screamers and long shots but ronaldos was just that bit better, it was grab and take as usually i have defenders snatching the ball from my feet, but i played it perfectley and in off the bar lovely :)

    yeah i've been trying to do that all night to no avail :D peppered all my opponents with shots but had to resort to the ol' through ball to make sure i won them all.. did just score a goal after a one touch move though which i quite enjoyed, dunno why the start of the replay is cut off..

    Number one for me closely followed by number 4.

    Great goals but those with the lesser players/teams always means more to me than a big named 90+ average rated player.
