Just saw this pop up on YouTube after viewing some of the goals from the Forgotten Player's thread.

 

Chelsea's top 10 most important goals of all time.  I know that there are some missing from our old promotion campaigns, but watching this is still fun, and makes me realize, again, just how special the CL win was with RDM at the helm.  He loved us.

As glorious as that Terry header was against Barcelona and as sweet as the victory was, I wouldn't say it's significant enough to warrant a place on a top ten like that. How about Zola against Stuttgart? Say what you will about the Europa League, but surely Ivanovic's header in the final trumps Terry's header.

 

As for Jesper's goal against Liverpool. I absolutely love that goal, but the important one in that match was Desailly's equaliser. We only needed a draw and when we got the quick equaliser, I think we got the momentum and Jesper's goal was the icing on the cake. Jesper got the assist for our first goal, so it's all good!

is it just me or did jespers goals always look like crosses !!  drogba's header in the CL final was without doubt the greatest header in recorded history!!

i also think that di matteo's fastest goal in the FA cup final should of been in there, how was gerards own goal more important than that !!

1 Clive Walker at Bolton 83

 

2 Dave Webb v Leeds 1970 fa cup final replay

 

3 Drogba, Munich

 

4 Lampard, Bolton

 

5 Di Matteo 97 Final

 

6 Zola v Liverpool 97 fa cup without Zola's equaliser there wouldnt have been a Di Matteo goal in the 97 Final.

 

7 Zola in Stockholm v Stuggart, put us back on the European map.

 

8  Dixon at Grimsby 84 to clinch the div 2 title.

 

9 Drogba v Pompey fa cup final to clinch our 1st double.

 

10 Colin Lee v Liverpool 82 fa cup, our 2nd goal clinched the tie which meant another pay day for the club that was badly needed at the time.

Just flipping through the statistics and to me it seems like Peter Sillet's penalty kick goal against Wolves was the one that sealed the deal on our first league title. We won the league by a margin of four points and had we lost the home match against Wolves (with just three matches to play for after it), who knows what might have happened. We only managed one win in three after that match.

Can't argue with that list carshalton, honorable mentions for paul canoville at sheff weds in milk cup, just for the start of the comeback, what a game, remember watching it on sports night,going into school next day, and people for once were talking about the Chelsea game, and second mention was a another comeback that fortunately didn't quite come off, who can forget dougie rougvie own goal at Wembley!!! Their we all were packed in that end at Wembley, 5-1 up and then dougie strikes, and its a bloody nervy last 5 mins, as city came back.maybe not most important goals in our history, but always bring a smile to my face.

I could really do without all this emotion on a Saturday morning.

It's a lot easier to pick goals from knock out competitions because their significance is more evident due to the nature of the competition.

But I would say a goal like Drogba's 30 yard screamer away to Everton was more important than say the JT goal against Barca... That goal set us well on the way to winning the title in a match that we struggled to control.

Or Gudjohnsen scoring the first and only goal in the opening day fixture against United. Mourinho's first game in charge, it was a statement of where we were as a club.

We didn't win the title when Drogba scored that volley against everton.

I agree with what your saying though, joe coles back heel at old Trafford pretty much clinched the league under ancelotti.
