French wing-wizard Hatem Ben Arfa is finally starting to produce the kind of performances for Newcastle which match his talent. Along with Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba and Papiss Cissé, Ben Arfa is thriving in Alan Pardew’s multi-national side. (Interestingly, Pardew once dismissed Arsenal’s run in the Champions League by claiming that they weren’t really an English side due to all the foreign players in Arsene Wenger’s team.)

Against Bolton on Tuesday, Ben Arfa opened the scoring for the Magpies with a magnificent solo goal, which must be favourite for a goal of the season gong. Enjoy…

    Fine goal, but Crouch is still ahead in the ‘Goal of the Season’ stakes for me.

  2. Davy says:

    Absolute Quality!!!

  3. abhi_gooner says:

    Great goal, but Robin van Persie vs Everton just about edges it.

  4. MGJ says:

    Yet another example of a goal that if scored by one diminutive Argentinian we’d never har the end of it.

  5. AT says:

    to be fair NUFC do play the likes of Shola (Nigerian Geordie), Simpson, Williamson, Perch, Ryan Taylor, Guthrie and Steven Taylor. But have went for foreign players in the last year and look at the consequences!

  6. Professor Erno Breastpinchd says:

    Ashley young would have gone down under that challenge from Rickets, the diving little swine. Great goal, but I’m siding with Crouch for now.

    “But have went for foreign players in the last year and look at the consequences!”

    Colin Murray? Is that you?

  8. Davy says:

    @ Chris, it would never be goal of the season when its a Newcastle player though obviously,

  9. thisISben says:

    Having heard so much about it before seeing it all I can say it isn’t as great as some say it is.

    The cup goal hescored was better, and so was Crouch’s.

  10. scotspur says:

    “wonder” goal?! as in you wonder where bolton’s defense was?

  11. Del says:

    It was an absolute beauty, Newcastle are going places.
