***********Disclaimer & Selection Criteria************
First I'd just like to say that this video is primarily a bit of fun, the ordering is not an exact science or something I spent too long deliberating over. I made this mainly for purely entertainment purposes and with the hope of bringing back some great memories of the last 20 years following Newcastle United.
When deciding the order I focused mainly on the pure technical and aesthetic qualities of each goal, but also awarded extra brownie points if they were in big games, were particularly memorable moments, against higher quality opposition or if they were debut goals for young player etc etc. I also tried to get a nice cross section of goals - including a range of types (volleys, free kicks, runs, headers, acrobatic etc), a cross section of eras and also trying to represent as many great players as possible. The cut off point was the beginning of the promotion season in 92-93 and only competitive goals were included. There will be some goals that I have left out either because I couldn't source the footage (Beresford vs Villa, Martins vs Bolton), I forgot to put it in (eg N'Zogbia vs mackems) or simply that I and the others that helped compile the list simply forgot about altogether. The quality of each goal is often purely subjective and I'm sure many will disagree altogether with the listings, but like I said the ordering is not the fundamental point of the video.
Please turn the volume up to enjoy both the commentary and background music. I hope you have as much fun watching these two videos as I did compiling them. Here's to many more goals of a similar nature in the future!
Thanks to those at Newcastle-Online for suggesting the many goals included, some that were from an era before I was out of nappies.
