New, 2 comments

Which golazo tickles your fancy?

MLS: FC Dallas at Los Angeles Galaxy Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

While FC Dallas starts preparing for 2018, let’s take a rip down memory lane and look at all the wonderful goals from the 2017 season. Our staff poured through all the goals from all the competitions and trimmed it down to this Top 8. Like years before, we’ll let you - our devoted and beautiful readers, to have the final say. Enjoy these eight beauties and vote below for your 2017 FC Dallas Goal of the Year!

Maxi vs Toronto

On the surface this goal feels kind of “meh”, but when you think about who this was against, the angle, the low margin of error and how he absolutely just roofed this. It’s hard not to include this “typical” Maxi goal.

Tesho vs Houston

Just about any goal vs Houston gets extra consideration, but when you do Houston dirty like Tesho did, you get Top 8 goal status.

Maxi vs New England

Like his other goal, Maxi’s penchant for finding the back of the net from ridiculous angles is uncanny. Despite watching this over and over and over again, I still have no idea how he scored this.

Colman vs Montreal

That run, that pass, that first touch, that hop to bulldoze over the keeper and the calm finish. We didn’t see nearly enough of these from Cristian Colman this year, but hopefully it’s a sign of things to come for 2018.

Maxi vs Portland

Again, do not doubt the right foot of Maxi. Against his former club that let him go after winning the MLS Cup, Urruti delivers a golazo for the fans to enjoy.

Acosta vs Arabe Unido

#YearOfKellyn started here with this ridiculously placed one-time shot from Kellyn Acosta.

Maxi vs Houston

Off a bounce, running at full speed, 25 yards out and without even looking, Urruti absolutely buries this volley against Houston.

Acosta vs Pachuca

One of his biggest improvements of the year, was Kellyn’s dead ball delivery. Well, his delivery into the goal at least. Acosta’s free kick put Dallas ahead of Pachuca 2-1 and showed the rest of CONCACAF that Dallas was serious about winning the CCL.

So which goal is your favorite? There’s no right or wrong here and the criteria is entirely subjective. Let us know and vote below! Polls are open until 12pm, Tuesday 11/7. We’ll announce the winner via social media. (Follow us if you don’t already!)
