Nominees

Lorenzo's Nominee:

It couldn't not be a Giuseppe Rossi effort. While my personal favorite was the fourth goal against Juventus (with THAT touch by Borja Valero to spring Juan Cuadrado on the counterattack), Rossi's equalizer from distance was a moment of pure class, an effort by a fuoriclasse putting a team and a city on his back. Out of nothing he picks up the ball, shreds Pogba, and puts it past Gianluigi Buffon before he even had a chance to figure out what was happening. And Cesare Prandelli still might not take him to Brazil... Completely absurd. Watch the full match highlights here:

Slakas' Nominee:

He was already having a fantastic season, but Pepito Rossi continued to surprise us all with moments of wizardry. He hit double digits in goals scored against Sampdoria in the fall with his early penalty kick, but doubled the lead with one of the best strikes of the Serie A season when the Samp defense gave him too much room on the edge of the box.

OTHER NOMINEES

This Matias Fernandez CORKER to equalize away to Parma. Almost impossible for a right footer to hit it so well from that angle: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/-eHdc1lQDvI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Any of these three goals at home against Bologna... That Borja Valero ball control for the second still makes me feel a little tingly inside.

Captain Manuel Pasqual thought he had scored one of the goals of the season with his opener against Udinese in the return leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal, but then Cuadrado had to have a go... And WHAT A GO IT WAS. Watch the whole highlights to also appreciate some fine goalkeeping.

Wish we had gotten to see a lot more of this from Mario Gomez this season... What a goal and what a moment, he had us all believing:

And from earlier in the Europa League, the winner from Massimo Ambrosini in one of our hardest fought victories of the season, away in Dnipro. More Borja magic in the build up.
