Arsenal Goals of the Season – #7 Marouane Chamakh v Braga

Despite another barren campaign for Arsenal in terms of silverware, Arsene Wenger’s side have continued to entertain their domestic and international audiences by scoring some of the most sumptious goals seen this season.

From last-minute wonder strikes, to free-flowing passing moves, the Gunners have provided various breathtaking moments during what has been an exciting, unpredictable 2010/11 Barclays Premier League.

Gooner Talk have rounded up 10 of Arsenal’s Goals of the Season for your viewing pleasure. The goals were decided on the basis of technical ability and match importance. If you feel we’ve missed any out, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.

Arsenal 6-0 SC Braga (UEFA Champions League)

An early season thrashing of SC Braga was exactly the tonic Arsene Wenger was looking for, after a 6-0 win over the Portugese side in September.

Skipper Cesc Fabregas got the ball rolling with an early penalty and once Arshavin had doubled the lead ten minutes later, the game was over as a contest.

The opposition were mesmerised by the stunning passing football from Arsenal. After 34 minutes Chamakh fired home after a great move ended with a Jack Wilshere backheel to the Moroccan.

Sub Carlos Vela then put in a cameo performance netting twice thanks to clever approach work.

    Chamakh’s role is the most underestimated in the team. People tend to forhet his brilliant contribution at the early stages of the season despite being in a new team in a totally new culture… And what is now? He is critised because the fans think that the struggling eam form is down to only him. He was never a top goalscorer at Bordeaux, either. But he scored 11 goals in this season, and he helped the team to stay in the title race when we missed RvP and Bendtner.
    I really hope that with Cesc’s possibly selling, we will have a more flexible formation and he will be able to play alongside van Persie. We need a Chamakh who is not out of his top form and who plays with full of confidence. Like against Braga.
