2012 has past so it’s time to reflect on the year that was. A trophy was brought back to Anfield in the Carling Cup, but also a poor finish in the league. One thing is for certain though – the team scored some great goals which will be talked about for years to come. We don’t just rely on Luis Suarez to score goals at Liverpool, irrespective of what the media tried to say – and here’s the proof…
A variety of goalscorers who play in different positions; there are defenders, midfielders and of course attackers. A range of goals – from headers, team goals, volleys, shots from outside the box, and from every competition the Reds played in last year.
Here’s a look back at my Top 10 Goals of 2012, starting with…
10: Craig Bellamy – Liverpool 2 Manchester City 2 Carling Cup semi-final 2nd leg (Liverpool win 3-2 on agg).
It was one of those nights when Anfield rocked and reverberated with noise. The Carling Cup has brought more embarrassment than joy for Liverpool in recent years, but a tumultuous semi-final second leg ended with a long overdue return to Wembley gleefully secured by Craig Bellamy.
His 74th minute contribution was appropriate for a goal which sent his boyhood team back to the place where they have been absent for too long. Receiving Kuyt’s ball into the area, he laid a deft little two-yard pass to Glen Johnson and spun away to receive it and find a shot which was too much for Hart.
Bring back good memories? Well sit back, relax and relive the rest of the quality strikes in my countdown by clicking below on our working class hero, Dirk, as he celebrates goal no.9 in my list.
