Gary Neville Could Only Laugh As Emre Can Won Fans' Goal Of The Season

Gary Neville Could Only Laugh As Emre Can Won Fans' Goal Of The Season
By Mikey Traynor

Usually it's an Arsenal fan cliche that a public vote is always won by a Gunner because the fans are so active on social media, but Gary Neville flipped the script on MNF when it came to the goal of the season voting.

After Chelsea won a bizarre match against Watford, with Cesc Fabregas netting the winner in a 4-3 goalfest, it was Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville's turn to give their take on team of the season, player of the season, and goal of the season.

This year will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the most spectacular goal of the season compliations, as there were some incredible goals, so much so that Jeff Hendrick's stunning volley didn't even make the top 5.

Before the pundits gave their view, MNF revealed the results of their public vote:

Emre Can being #1 produced a laugh from Neville, and he explained why:

I mean it's a great goal, and it's a little unsurprising if you ever watch X-Factor or those types of programmes, it's always somebody from Liverpool does well.

They always vote for their own in droves don't they? Which is a great quality to have.

It's a brilliant goal, no doubt about that, it would be wrong of me to dispute it but I think it's the type of goal that we've seen before.

It isn't, for me, the best of the season, but then again how could the public be wrong?

Interestingly, Carragher opted for Andy Carroll's bicycle kick instead of Emre Can's, as he explained that the height of the ball made the Englishman's effort more difficult and ultimately more impressive.


Really though? The angle of the pass from Emre Can, the distance... A worthy winner of goal of the season surely, although the argument from Giroud is certainly valid too.
