Ok. These are the other 5 goals. I wanted to include the classic Adebayor goal against Tottenham in 2008 but i opted against it. You might not agree, different criteria et al, but if you need to ask why i left his goal out then you either are lying to yourself or aren’t an Arsenal fan. So, the other 5 goals in the part 2 of the top 10 Arsenal goals under Arsene Wenger. Youtube videos are, inevitably, here too. Enjoy.

Carlos Vela against Sheffield United in 2008

Sure, it wasn’t particularly important but neither, for that matter, is coca cola. The world can survive without it but it sure seems better with it. Wait. It’s just a goal, i know i know. But what a beautiful goal. Kieran Gibbs to Vela and, then, the goal. For he’s a jolly good Vela, for he’s a jolly good Vela.

Bergkamp against Newcastle in 2002

Wow. Words are inadequate. No, perhaps its just me. Still, i’m not quite sure what to write. Perhaps i should just go to thesaurus.com type in splendid and then use all the synonyms. Even then it just wouldn’t feel right. Sure, its hyperbole but as an Arsenal fan very little can top this. Bergkamp was a genius. This was his most spectacular moment. That Viera and Pires were also involved only made it even more special. Wow.

Thierry Henry against Manchester United in 2000

I have heard it all. It was flukey. It was a mistake from Fabien Barthez, poor positioning. It was unmerited. No. This was just Henry at his most phenomenal. Manchester United have Cantona, we have Henry. This was Henry doing a Cantona at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Grimandi made the pass, Dennis Irwin couldn’t get close, Henry swivelled and put it in the back of the net. We won 1-0. Va va voom.

Nwanku Kanu against Middlesbrough in 1999

We won 6-1, this goal meant little, but Kanu was a magician only Arsenal fans appeared to truly appreciate. Portsmouth fans, eventually, might have felt the same, but for a while at Arsenal Kanu was simply splendid. His inconsistency merely made him more alluring. This goal epitomised everything which was good about Kanu. Arsenal win 1-0 was something familiar. Henry scores, familiar. Arsenal entertaining, familiar. Parlour, Overmars and a Kanu backheel flick? For a while it was. Kanu the magician.

Ljungberg against Manchester United in 2001

Many younger Arsenal fans saw Ljungberg play for us and West Ham and wondered what the fuss was about. He did decline dramatically in his final few seasons. Yes. But there was a time, a magical few years, when Ljungberg was genuinely world class. A superb attacking midfielder, full of hard running with good technique to boot. One of the best players Wenger ever signed, this goal he scored against Manchester United was worth plenty. We won the title that season but, perhaps, without this goal, at that time, we might not have. France’s world cup winning Barthez could do nothing. Manchester United could do nothing. Always grateful to Ljungberg for this.

    content of a page when looking at its layout. The purpose
    of using Lorem Ipsum is that it’s a more or less normal distribution of letters,
    compared to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like
    readable English. Many desktop publishing packages
    and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and
    a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web
    sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over time, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the

  6. I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to
    the discussion. It’s triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.
    And after this post The top 10 Arsenal goals under Arsene Wenger – Part 2 | Arsenal.ie.
    I was actually moved enough to post a thought 🙂 I do have a
    couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it
    simply me or do some of these comments look as if they are left by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have
    to post. Could you make a list all of all your communal sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  7. What i don’t understood is actually how you’re no longer actually much more neatly-liked than you may be right now.

    You are very intelligent. You realize thus considerably on the subject of this
    matter, made me for my part consider it from numerous various angles.
    Its like women and men aren’t fascinated except it’s something to do with Lady gaga!
    Your personal stuffs excellent. At all times care for it up!

  8. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing
    to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst people consider worries that
    they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as
    well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
