Nottingham Forest's Robert Tesche's thunderbolt against Charlton yesterday in the Championship gave Forest a share of the spoils at the City Ground.

And I'm sure his boss Stuart Pearce would have been proud of this one having scored quite a few thunderbolts of his own in his playing days for the club.

The Top 100 Goals of 2011

2012 is flourishing, but it's not too late to look back on the best goals from last year. Messi is on the list. Ronaldo too. But you already knew that. Some brilliant golazos you might not have seen are on here too.

Highly recommended hidden gems: Hernán Barcos' exquisite dribbling for Liga de Quito (#94), Nikica Jelavic's bicycle kick for Rangers (#91), Julio Gómez with another bicycle in the U-17 World Cup (#87), Pa Modou Kah coming out of nowhere with a thunderbolt of a strike (#62), Gualberto Mojica's one-two to back of the net strike (#55), Lisandro López's textbook bicycle kick for Arsenal de Sarandi (#21), and Cleiton Xavier's surreal touch for Metalist Kharkiv (#10).

Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov has not been at the top of Manuel Pellegrini's pecking order so far this season, but firing in goals like this can't do any harm in catching his eye. The Serbia international fired home this thunderbolt against Wales last night. He controlled the ball, let it roll away from him, [.

Pick that out the 'met Mehmet Topal'ın muhteşem golü. It's safe to say that Valancia didn't have the most comfortable of evenings at the Britannia Stadium last night, so you can imagine the Spanish outfit were pretty pleased when Mehmet Topal stepped forward to deliver this thunderbolt. The strike gave a precious away goal and [.

It's MLS goal of the year time, and MLSS is handing the reins to the fans this year. You'll pick between four goals in four pods from groups A-P. First-round voting ends Oct. 29, when we move on to the second round and on and on we go until Eric Hassli wins by a LBJ-esque landslide. Hassli's thunderbolt isn't included in the first four groups, but you can be sure he'll be in there eventually.

Copa America 2011: Peru send Colombia packing, 2-0

The end of Colombia came almost anticlimactically in extra time after 90 minutes of spectacular shots which had both goalies jack knifing through the air, a missed penalty by Radamel Falcao, and two reprieves for Peru as the ball blasting Dayro Moreno and Fredy Guarin threatened to end the match.

Liverpool 1-0 Gomel

Goals:
Downing 67'

When Liverpool win with a brilliant, unfathomable goal after creating very little from open play, when Liverpool's opponent hit the woodwork and miss chance after chance, we probably shouldn't complain. I doubt it need remind it was the absolute opposite last season, all season long.

Liverpool 2-1 Stoke

Goals:
Suarez 23'
Crouch 27'
Downing 57'

Stoke never make it easy. Liverpool needed two superlative goals, two vibrant wildflowers in an otherwise barren field, to cancel out an unlucky concession and return to Wembley for the second time this season.

Other than Suarez and Downing's rays of sunshine, we were treated to typical Stoke attrition.

Another Riise

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

We all know about John Arne Riise's traction engine of a left foot, but that's not what really interests me. I watched enough Brazil games growing up to know that having a left back who can belt the ball at or beyond the speed of light is not as useful as it is fun. So while we can be sure Riise will bust a net or two with a thunderbolt at some point, this is the cherry on top of the cake, not the cake itself.

My favourite Arsenal picture may seem a strange choice. It's taken in April 1998, at a tense moment of Arsenal's 3-1 win at home to Newcastle United at Highbury (the programme from which you can see above). All eyes are on Toon striker Alan Shearer, who was preparing to unleash one of his scud missile free kicks towards Arsenal's goal.

Even with City's dodgy away form in recent weeks this game was always going to be a test of Arsenal's abilities. Was the QPR result a blip or the beginning of yet another slump?

With 3 defeats in the last 4 games and an unconvincing win against Leeds in the last round of the FA Cup, Arsenal fans were feeling far from optimistic ahead of this 4th round clash against Aston Villa.

Rumour had it that the Gunners injury list was starting to ease, and so it proved with Sagna, Henry and Arteta all named on the bench and also the young Frenchman Coquelin was deputising at right back.

Having given your verdict on the player of the season, it's time to have your say regarding your favourite goals from the last campaign.

As you would expect from Spurs, there were some stunning strikes and many of our goals from 2010-11 featured on Match of the Day and Sky's regular competitions, but which of these really stands out?

Manchester United

Fulham 2-1 Sunderland

How about that then, eh? Fulham were absolutely fabulous, and deserved to score more than two against a good Sunderland side. More than anything it was a win that confirmed Martin Jol's nous for teambuilding, taking Roy Hodgson's stalwarts and making them thrilling. Everywhere you looked was someone at the top of their game and Sunderland may very well have traveled back north shaking their heads: how could they have seen that coming?

United v. Liverpool – The Shadows of Greatness Linger

Everybody wants to talk about Luis Suarez. He was charged with racism, served his suspension, and has returned to play. Done. Was he petulant before the game? Yes. But since when was that novel? I'm more interested in this little thing called the field. On said field, players kick balls. In fact, just yesterday, a game was played on said field.

A trademark performance from 2 months ago leaves Tottenham Hotspur right in the hunt for Champions League football still. 2 wins down, 2 to go. Adam Nathan reflects on the match from last night.

Let's take a vote. At 1-1 last night, was there anyone who thought that Spurs, our Spurs, with two wins in ten miserable outings, would pick themselves up, transform into the players we all know they can be and dismantle a spirited Bolton on a ground that we had never recorded a league win?

Ruthless Germany looking ominous in early Euro 2012 - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Wednesday night served up two exciting and enthralling Euro 2012 fixtures, with the ‘group of death' starting to take shape. Portugal made it hard for themselves in beating Denmark but got there with a late goal, whilst early favourites Germany continued their winning streak by all-but damning Netherlands to a competition exit.

Sometimes it is so, so nice to be so, so wrong. Spain's 4-3 win over Yugoslavia in Euro 2000 was memorably described at the time has "having everything except full-frontal nudity." Given Equatorial Guinea's celebration of their astounding 2-1 win over Senegal in the ACN last night, I expect we had that as well.

The game was moved up several weeks due to Barcelona's participation in the Club World Cup next month.

Dempsey's Menagerie | Thoughts on USA v. Guadaloupe

The Fullback Files at related • 2 views

So which was more shocking for you: Clint Dempsey's menagerie of missed sitters or Bob Bradley finishing the game with Dempsey as his lone striker? It's not an idle question. My notes, even from early in the first half, mention Dempsey looking heavy-legged and lacking his usual spark. I think it was about a half hour in that I wondered why Bradley hadn't started the energetic Bedoya, saving Dempsey, coming off a long club season, for emergency sub duty and the latter stages of the tournament.
