    Two months of football, two goals of the month for Liverpool. The official goal of the season historically goes to goals much later in the season so it's unlikely those two goals will win goal of the season, but if we keep scoring like we have been we'll have goal of the month every month, easy win ;-)

    Anyway what I'm proposing our own forum goal of the season comp with the contenders being added as the season goes along, and then at the end of the season a mod can add a poll to the thread with the goals for us to vote on. I've put the goals that I think deserve to be in the running below, if you think I've missed any that should be here post them in the comments. This is just something that I think could be a bit of fun for the forum.

    [​IMG] (Coutinho vs Hull)

    [​IMG] (Henderson vs Chelsea)

    [​IMG] (Firmino vs Leicester)

    [​IMG] (Lallana vs Leicester)

    [​IMG] (Coutinho vs Arsenal)

    [​IMG] (Mane vs Arsenal)

    That's already quite a few, maybe we'll need to trim the competition down at some point.

    Which of the contenders so far is your favourite?

    Coutinho's goals, both Arsenal and Hull ones are very good. Henderson's goal was more of the way the game had panned out and the significance of it. But for me the Coutinho's ones are more measured and we know it's coming.

    I think Mane's brilliant effort at the Emirates tops the lot.

    I honestly couldn't pick one from that selection. All fantastic goals, although I love watching all Liverpool goals (i watched the Liverpool vs Dortmund goals on a loop for about an hour, esp loved the slo-mo of Lovren after the goal). I will wait till the end of season before i pick one but hope that Monday night will provide some more choices.

    I like the header from Grujic against Barcelona but not sure the pre-season games count or not.

    Seriously though,I think Henderson deserves it as that kind of goal for him is not typical whereas coutinho will probably bag a few more of the one he scored this season,just to be sure you didn't think I was being rude.:-)

    Jordan's goal was nigh on perfect. As a goal it was pretty much unsaveable. The way he met the ball as it was just on an upward bounce gave it that extra bit of height which took it over Cech and then dipped into the top corner. Coutinho's free kick against Arsenal was inch perfect so we've been spoiled with world class goals.

    Coutinho against Arsenal. From that distance, against the run of play, and against Peter Cech. Henderson's goal was fantastic - don't get me wrong - but was in the flow of play, and Courtois had to adjust on the fly. Meanwhile Cech, a keeper I think is better than Courtois, had time to set his wall, set his feet, and prepare for the shot.

    And still couldn't do a damn thing about it.

    It might bring a few shakes of the head given the quality of some of the individual goals for us this season, but the goal to put us up 1-3 against Arsenal is my goal of the season. Lovely worked team goal, a really classy flick by Coutinho to put Wij in behind the defence, then a hugely underrated finish by Lallana (low, hard, tight angle, with milliseconds to decide and on the half volley...Superb). It isn't a moment of absolute brilliance like the others on offer, but the few touches of real class in this goal by a number of players pushes it above the others IMO. Its the first goal that pops into my head every time I think about how we've scored this season.

    And just quietly, I don't think he has played that well generally this season, but Coutinho's 'moments' have been pure sex so far haven't they?

    Coutinho's second at Arsenal was also a very difficult goal to finish - but he made it look so easy!!

    Been quite a few stunners already. Very difficult to pick one. Mane vs Arsenal was utterly brilliant, so out of the individual efforts I'd go with that one. Hendo's strike vs Chelsea was also superb.

    For me though, a good team goal is better than an individual effort, so I'm leaning towards Mane vs Leicester. Excellent goal.

    Knew it wouldn't get the plaudits it truely deserves, but the team goal coutinho finished off vs arsenal is some of the best football I've ever seen, over 30 passes, probing, back out, back in, back out, then the full back gambles and coutinho finishes it....absolutely breathtaking 30 plus touch goal.

    The two goals that have been mentioned that weren't in the original post

    [​IMG] (Coutihno #2 vs Arsenal)

    [​IMG] (Mane vs Leicester)

    After the boxing day match I'll post a poll of all the contenders up to that point (and lets face it, there'll be a fair few more classy goals scored between now and then) and the top 5 or 6 goals by votes will be carried forward to the main goal of the season poll at the end of the season. I'll also do similar thing towards the end of the second half of the season (but before the last game of the season so the proper poll can go up on the last day of the season with any worldies scored in the last match included in the overall poll).

    In the mean time which player are you still waiting on to score a banger?

    For me right now. I would go for Hendo.
    The placement of the ball, the height, the curl to beat Courtois was simply amazing. Throw in to Grujic's epic reaction to it.

    Other than that... my other fav goal this season is Klopp's blindfolded penalty lollollollol

    It's Henderson's for me. The team it was scored against gives it extra kudos. Any goal against them gives me pleasure.

    This is in no way a complaint against you, but the problem with that footage is it's about 3% of why the goal is so great.

    I have googled it, I don't think you can get a gif with all 30 plus passes in it.

    Again, not having a go.

    We scored a lot of really great goals this season. Henderson verse Chelsea and Lallana's verse Leicester was quite spectacular. Hard to pick one but Mane's against Arsenal was just mindblowing as he drible past two men before scoring.

    haha, I know, I tried to find one for ages for the match thread, but even just the one touch take from Cou still makes it a very good goal :-)

    Henderson's goal is still the best of the season for me so far. Simply brilliant.
    The season is only 25% done though so there's still a lot of footie to be played.

    Hendo's because Courtois often looks like the tallest man in the world.

    These are the goals from the first half of the season that got through the mid season poll to be in the end of season poll. Sorry it took so long to sort out the results, been in a bit of a mood with football for the past month, but feeling better now lol

    [​IMG] Henderson vs Chelsea

    [​IMG] Coutinho vs Arsenal (1)

    [​IMG] Mane vs Arsenal

    [​IMG] Lallana vs Leicester

    [​IMG] Mane vs West Brom

    [​IMG] Origi vs Bournemouth

    [​IMG] Origi vs Sunderland

    The most recent goal that was entered into the goal of the season comp was Gini's against Shiteh, if you think any of the goals we've scored since that game are good enough to be entered into the goal of the season comp let me know in the comments. There'll be poll towards the end of the season for the goals scored in the second half of the season, and then in the last week of the season the overall poll will be done.
