The Scholes volley against Villa is the most ridiculous hit I've ever seen, and if you don't agree, you can f*** off.

very difficult to choose, but RVP, over the shoulder, while running, and trying to stay onside

Scholes at Villa for me but the RVP volley is outstanding.

Any of them could be the best, Rooney against Newcastle should get some love to. Had to go with Cantona though, the control is like something out of the Matrix and the volley is sweet as a nut.

Excellent thread Bellers.

Agree with the RVP comments but Iím going with Scholes v Bradford purely because Jaffo Jr and I used to try and recreate it in the local park when he was little (and make a total balls of it every time obvs)

I thought Beckham had messed up his corner and Scholes had somehow improvised a lucky volley.

But no, they actually planned it.

The most audacious set piece I've seen on a football pitch. And if it's not such a big deal, why don't teams try it every week? Free goals!!

The Villa volley, Tyler actually screams 'Hooooow??'.

Rooney's was the cleanest hit. RVP the most difficult. Scholes v Bradford the craziest and best.
