What Brilliant Goals Looked Like In 1990/91

Dean Saunders, Niall Quinn, Brian Kilcline all appear in this absolute treasure trove of goals from the 1990/91 Goal of the Season competition as compiled by Saint & Greavsie.

I'd imagine people of a certain age would get fairly wistful about Saint & Greavsie. It was an era of muddy pitches, horsed long balls, crumbling terraces, hooliganism, David Platt scoring every second goal England got, the odd fat striker, English clubs having no interest in the European Cup, and Ireland being really good.


It was a quainter, more egalitarian time in English football too, as every team gets one goal on this list rather than the strict meritocracy in goal of the season comps now. It impacts on the quality of some of the goals but there are some good, old fashioned belters here. The mulleted Brian Kilcline blasts home a pile driver of a free kick for Sheffield Wednesday, Dean Saunders whacks home a serious half volley after a fine assist from his own goalkeepers (goalkeepers managed to get more assists back in 1990, as we know all too well from watching Packie Bonner).

Watch out for Quinny's svelte side footed volley in Selhurst Park It's a goal which would hardly get in Goal of the Season competitions now but anyway...
