Goal of the Season

Goal of the Season

The Goal of the Season for 2006/07 was hotly contested. One of the Blues' most successful Premiership goalscoring campaigns provided a host of memorable goals.

But the strike voted the finest of the lot from the 12 shortlisted by Everton legend Graeme Sharp was James McFadden's winning goal against Charlton at Goodison in April.

The Scottish international's injury-time volley was as eye-catching as it was important.

The three points provided by that victory were to prove crucial in the Blues' mission to qualify for the Uefa Cup.

But had it been of little meaning in the context of the campaign, it would still have been tough to beat in the race for the prestigious accolade.

It was a sublime effort. Having received a pass on the edge of the box, his first touch chipped the ball past the advancing Madjid Bougherra before smashing a volley into the bottom corner of the net from 18 yards.

But superb as James' goal was, it faced stiff competition - with Mikel Arteta's solo effort against Bolton in November leading the charge.

Andy Johnson's first of his brace in the 3-0 victory over Liverpool also proved a popular choice, as did Leon Osman's scorchers against both West Ham and Watford.

McFadden received his award from Sharpy and afterwards he told evertonTV exclusively: "There were a lot of great goals this season and so it was good to get this.

"It has been a frustrating season for me but it is good to know I have played a part with this goal in such an important game. I hope to show more of that next season."
