What is your top 100

Recommended Posts

I was just reading an interesting article (For West Ham fans) on there top 100 greatest momments of all time, Some I agree with some I do not but one thing is for sure they have happened and there are some real crackers in there

As a football fan and someone who is passionate about his team I just love watching my team either live or on t.v and I have witnessed some great momments over the years all the highs and all lows but one thing is for sure you just cannot beat the buzz when you see something amazing from your own team

Gazza freekick against Arse-anal in the 91 FA Cup semi final at Wembley :thumbsup:


Nayim scoring for Zaragoza against Arsenal :thumbsup:


Gazza goal against Scotland at Euro 96 :thumbsup:


Shearers 2nd goal in the 4-1 win against Holland in Euro 96 as he and Sheringham tore the Dutch to pieces, TOTAL FOOTBALL :thumbsup: (all worth seeing again though)


And for pure nailbiting intensity, I have to agree with mariner... This is about the best link I could find, and to be honest, I think it's superb. Apart from the hilarious Yank trying to make out he knows something about the beautiful game that is "Soccer", the commentary is superb. I can only imagine what you United supporters must have felt like that night. Surely something that will NEVER be forgotten?.

gota agree with mariner, ole and teddy doing the krauts in barcelona, george best once said that he left the stadium before the 1st goal went in, bet he was gutted

terry falling over in moscow, my heart nearly landed in my beer when that happened

1st united game i remember watching on tv, 4-0 against chelski in the fa cup final, pure amazment on my tv screen, never looked back since

beckhams free kick against greece at wembley sending us to the world cup

What a cup final.

agree with that one mangle . alan sunderland 3-2 arsenal

but the top one for me has to be michael thomas running through to clinch the league at anfield . 2-0 to arsenal and anfield stunned as they watched the gunners pick up the trophy .

They'd never have done it without David "The Rock" Rocastle and Perry "I'm 12 with ginger hair and look like Jimmy Somerville" Groves :c:

Marino Keith scoring the 94th minute winner away at Swindon just two minutes after the Swindon equaliser and with the Swindon fans singing "2-0 and you f***ed it up!".

Mickey Evans scoring in his final game for Argyle at home to Ipswich in front of the Devonport End. I celebrated that as much as promotion games.

Friio's goal v QPR. The moment I knew we were promoted.

Martin Barlow scoring at home to Gillingham in March '96 promotion run in.

Friio scoring two goals right at the end of the game (possibly in injury time?) at home to Gillingham to turn a 1-0 defeat into a 2-1 win.

Friio saving a shot in the final game of Argyle's last promotion season. Sent off and gave away a penalty. Penalty was missed and clean sheet was kept.

Winning 3-0 away at Forest in their relegation season. Awsome atmosphere and great day.

Halmosi scoring in the 1-0 win away at Sheff Utd. the game after Holloway had left.

0-0 draw away at Notts County the game after Sturrock had left for Saints. A huge Argyle crowd saw McCormick save a pen to hold on.

Super Rory Fallon scoring twice at Ashton Gate to secure a win against City.

Ian Stonebridge scoring a 93rd minute header away at the scum to get a 3-2 win at St. Aimless Park.
