The Greatest Rams Goal Ever!


Recommended Posts

BBC Derby are asking for nominations for the best goal you have seen by a Rams player and the top 10 suggestions will be put to a vote.


Has to be the Wanchope goal at Old Trafford for me, the goal and the look on the United fans faces aswell, quality day that was.

Kevin Wilson overhead kick,Steve Buckleys rocket that nearly broke the net( cant remember the opposition). Tommy Smiths goal against forest was a great move too.

Phil Gee scored a cracker at Highbury when we were the only team to beat the Arsenal home and away.

Jay Mcevelys pen in the shoot out against Southampton.

i told ya didn't I lol -

Derby County fans have nominated Paulo Wanchope's debut strike against Manchester United as the greatest goal scored in the club's history.

The fans have spoken and decided that, out of the hundreds of goals scored by Derby County over the past 125 years, one stands head and shoulders above all the rest.

That goal was Paulo Wanchope's debut strike against Manchester United at Old Trafford in April 1997.

With the Rams already 1-0 up through Ashley Ward's early effort, the gangly Costa Rican picked up the ball inside his own half and languidly headed goalwards.

All four members of Manchester United's defence attempted to tackle him but Wanchope simply waltzed through them all, looked up and calmly rolled the slotted the ball past a despairing Peter Schmeichel to give the Rams a shock 2-0 lead.

Derby went on to win the game 3-2 and it helped kick-start a fondly remembered period in the club's history which included two top ten Premier League finishes.

Second place in the vote was Charlie George's goal against Real Madrid in 1975 and third place went to Robbie Van der Laan's promotion-clinching header against Crystal Palace in 1996.
