C for the team goal, absolutely brilliant.

Probably F for the best individual goal. Pace, drive and a stunning strike.

Great viewing, thanks for posting.
Too difficult to choose, possibly the Liverpool goal, some finish.

I know it is nowhere near the levels of today, but I forgot just how many great foreigners played in England in the 80's.

Tony Morley's.

Was this not the goal we seen from behind the goals during an intro to MOTD or some other programme.

Watching the Paul Mariner goal there reminded of what a great side Bobby Robson built at Ipswich and what a pity they never won the old Division one.

Should have won it that year after beating Villa away near the end of the season. In fact they could have done a treble losing to Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final ending up with "only" the UEFA Cup.

Aberdeen fancied their chances at Pittodrie, but Liverpool gave them a masterclass in scoring early and then killing the game. No one was better at doing that than Liverpool.

They lost seven of their last ten league games in the 80-81 season, an incredible collapse.

But what a squad they had - Butcher, Wark, Beattie, Muhren, Thiessen, Mariner, Mills,...,

None of them were particularly outstanding. Overhead kick was probably the best but poor year for goal of the season overall.
