Thought it would be an idea to start a thread where you post with it being 25 years since the Premier League started with the following questions:
  • The best player you've seen from the last 25 years
  • The most controversial moment that you've seen from the last 25 years
  • The best games that you've seen from the last 25 years
  • The best goals you've seen from the last 25 years
  • The best moment of the Premier League in your opinion
  • The worst moment
  • Your ultimate Premier League XI
  • Funniest moment
  • A sending off that stands out for you
You can include YouTube videos for this as we relive your highlights of the Premier League from the last 25 years.

Thanks.

Good idea for a thread Mack!


[*]The best player you've seen from the last 25 years

Cristiano Ronaldo for me. Although Ruud Van Nistelrooy is an honourable mention

[*]The most controversial moment that you've seen from the last 25 years

Paulo Di Canio pushing a referee over

[*]The best games that you've seen from the last 25 years

Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham 2016
Manchester United 6-1 Arsenal 2001
Leeds 4-3 Liverpool 2001
Man United 5-3 Newcastle 2002
Newcastle 2-6 Man United 2003

Out of the matches that I've seen live these are the ones that stand out.

[*]The best goal you've seen from the last 25 years

It's hard to pick one but I would go with Charlie Adam's goal against Chelsea in 2015



[*]The best moment of the Premier League in your opinion

For the league as a whole it would be Leicester winning it in 2015/16 against the odds.

[*]The worst moment

Sergio Aguero's goal in the 93rd minute against QPR in 2012


[*]Funniest moment

A bird shitting in Ashley Young's mouth laugh.gif



[*]A sending off that stands out for you
Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer both getting sent off for fighting each other on the pitch even though they were teammates





I will list my ultimate 11 in a separate post.

Nice idea!

The best player you've seen from the last 25 years
Ronaldo for me. I only started properly getting into football about 10-12 years ago just as he was turning world class so a lot of great memories & moments spring to mind. Giggs & Scholes of course are worth a mention but their best periods were before I was an avid football follower.

The most controversial moment that you've seen from the last 25 years
Cheating a bit as this is a series of moments but basically Luis Suarez - the bite, the racism ban & then the refused handshake, it was seemingly a neverending saga. The other obvious one is the Cantona kick...

The best games that you've seen from the last 25 years
The 4-3 derby with the last minute Michael Owen winner SHOULD be here but I was working during that match pirate.gif so for games I saw live it would be the 8-2 against Arsenal (just for sheer brilliance) or taking my fan cap off the 4-4 North London derby in 2008.

The best goal you've seen from the last 25 years
Goodness where to start. I think I might have to go for the Cisse goal against Chelsea as it's the only one I can remember literally dropping my jaw at.

The best moment of the Premier League in your opinion
When we won our last title with the 3-0 win against Villa that was such an amazing night as I was in my last year of Uni too so the party that night was quite spectacular! Of course from a COMPLETELY impartial view it kinda has to be *that* goal the season before. No wait, Leicester winning the league of course!

The worst moment
See the second sentence above. Or the 6-1 earlier that season. Or even the 4-0 to Chelsea last year, that was a painful watch.

Your ultimate Premier League XI
Hmmm, I'll get back to you on that one tongue.gif

Funniest moment
When Kammy didn't know Anthony Vanden Borre had been sent off on Soccer Saturday. On the pitch itself? Not sure, the one I always instantly think of is Jimmy Bullard's pisstake celebration against City.

A sending off that stands out for you
Joey Barton against City (yes that game again sigh). Just to watch him completely lose it & nut a few City players was actually bloody hilarious.

Thought it would be an idea to start a thread where you post with it being 25 years since the Premier League started with the following questions:

I'll predict my answers to some of the questions as if they were asked next May tongue.gif

The best games that you've seen from the last 25 years

Brighton & Hove Albion 9-0 Manchester City 12 August 2017


The best goal you've seen from the last 25 years

Anthony Knockaert's goal to complete a hat-trick at Stamford Bridge in a 5-0 win for Brighton.


The best moment of the Premier League in your opinion

Brighton winning the title in their first season in the Premier League


The worst moment

Crystal Palace getting a point in March, thereby avoiding being the first team to finish a Premier League season on zero points.

Most of my moments will be from the late 90s, as that's the main time when I had a knowledge of what was going on -

The best player you've seen from the last 25 years
- Eric Cantona

The most controversial moment that you've seen from the last 25 years
- Robbie Fowler "celebrating" scoring a goal by getting down on his hands and knees and pretending to snort cocaine.

The best games that you've seen from the last 25 years
- Manchester United beating Nottingham Forest 8-1, with Ole Gunnar Solskjear scoring 4 goals from off the bench.

The best goal you've seen from the last 25 years
- An obvious one, but David Beckham scoring from the halfway line

The best moment of the Premier League in your opinion
- As above

The worst moment
- The referee wrongly sending off Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, thinking that he's Marcel Desailly

Funniest moment
- Shay Given conceding from a goal kick, because he doesn't realise that Dion Dublin is right behind him!

A sending off that stands out for you
- Has to be DiCanio pushing the referee.

I totally forgot about that Portsmouth 7-4 Reading match! If I had remembered then I would have put it in my list and also if I watched it live.
