2013/14 Season: Top 10 Man City Goals (GIFs)

Happy Xmas everybody. Here are my picks for the top 10 goals of the season so far. All clips taken from the outstanding site where the highlights these clips are taken from are available to share.

Here are, in my opinion, the top 10 goals of Man City's 2013/14 season. Oh, all goals are in GIF form. The problem with GIFs is that they are created without any sound. To solve this problem I have chosen some music.

Press play, if you wish, and watch my choices for the top 10 goals of the season so far.

Top 10 Goals

A) Yaya Toure v Hull

Pretty much a perfect shot.

B) James Milner v Fulham

Quick feet by Silva and then the out-of-this-damn-world pass from Negredo to Milner who hits a hard first time shot past the Fulham 'keeper.

C) Aguero v Newcastle

A nice direct pass from Fernandinho is flicked on by Dzeko towards Aguero. The diminutive Argentine still has a lot of work to do from the position in which he received the ball, but a trademark fast-slow-fast run takes him away from Taylor. The finish is sensational.

D) Negredo v Norwich

A great team goal that came during the butchering of Norwich.

E) Kolarov v Leicester

This is from a long, long way out.

F) Aguero v Chelsea

A bullet from Aguero with his 'wrong' foot. The pace and accuracy of the shot unfairly made Cech look a little lazy.

G) Milner vs Bayern Munich

This must have been like a dream for James Milner: time and space to walk onto a free ball with a chance to put your team a goal up against the best club side in the world.

That said, Milner still had work to do in the clip below. Notice how Milner accelerates and circles to get square to the ball. Once Milner was square to the ball he promptly dispatched a hard low shot past a goalkeeper who is, in my opinion, comfortably the best in the world in his position.

H) Yaya Toure v Fulham

Good God, Man City have scored some amazing free-kick's in 13/14. Perfection from Toure.

I) Negredo v Tottenham

Skill and intelligence from Negredo with the turn and then a brute of a shot that beats Lloris for pace.

J) Toure v Plzen

Tic. Tac. Tic. Shuffle forward, shuffle forward. A half step to the right, adjust the feet.......BANG.

The pace of Toure's shot is actually a little shocking on the third or fourth view. Shocking, and graceful. In a way, it's not dissimilar to a cruel and devastating knockout punch from a boxer. There's beauty in the brutality of the execution.
