Six of the best. But which one was the best? Watch them on video and vote

By 1970’s Gooner

All six goals scored on Tuesday night were exquisitely crafted and taken. But which one stands out in your opinion?

This is my list in descending order. I am sure some of you will have your own opinions and probably disagree with me. So vote for your choice on the poll we have set up.

6. Bendtner’s 2nd

Ramsey’s run and back flick set up Bendtner nicely. He only had to beat Kenny from close in.

5. Vela’s 3rd

Hit them on the counter attack and Wilsehere’s pass found the on coming Vela unmarked on the left who hit it quickly and low under Kenny’s hands.

4. Bendtner’s 1st

Created the space for himself and as the defenders stood back he found the time to drive it in from outside the box low on Kenny’s left hand post.

3. Wilshere

Received the ball direct from a corner and dilled a low hard drive just inside Kenny’s left hand post who was late in spotting the danger.

2. Vela’s 1st

Received the ball behind the defence after good work from Bendtner and drove it into the opposite corner of the net after curling it low and hard round Kenny’s outstretched hand with his left foot.

1. Vela’s 2nd

The pick of the bunch. An outstanding long high ball by Kieran Gibbs, controlled by Vela with his shoulder thus allowing the ball to go behind the defender leaving him on a one on one with the goalkeeper whom he nonchalantly chipped with the outside of his left foot without breaking his stride!

Mark Randall

For those of us who follow the Arsenal day in day out and in particular watch all the reserve and youth games shown on Arsenal TV were not really surprised by their display against Sheffield United.

Amidst all the eulogies heaped on the young guns one player’s excellent performance has gone unnoticed however. And this was Mark Randall.

He was an anchor in midfield playing the defensive midfielder’s role like a veteran and making some crunching tackles against a side which contains players who are not averse to the physical battles they have to encounter in the Championship.

May be Arsene Wenger has another viable option for the central midfield position alongside Song, Diaby and Denilson after all.

just to remind the older ones - the 2nd vela-goal was very similar to the one by pires at aston villa with peter schmeichel in goal. must have been back in 2002 or so ...

Lets hope that vela goes on to become as influential as Pires was. He is certainly a better finisher.

I also think that Randall's preformance was outstanding. He deserves to be given the opportunity in the first team to show what he can do.

ralph I also thought that about the Vela goal.

Randall isn't really an option, he's too young and has a staggering 10 minutes of Premier League experience.

Evenin', just wondered if you'd add my link to your blogroll? I've added yours already so if you'd do the same, it'd be much appreciated.

I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a post on a site
or I have something to valuable to contribute to the
conversation. Usually it is a result of the sincerness displayed in the article
I looked at. And on this article "Six of the best. But which one was the best? Watch them on video and vote".
I was actually excited enough to write a commenta response ;-) I actually
do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply
me or does it appear like some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have
to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your public
sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter
