Get In There!

Charlton have a chance to win something after all this season, with Nicky Bailey’s rocket volley against Wolves back in September in contention to win the Football League Goal of 2008. The volley flew toward goal in just the third minute of the game, and although goalkeeper Henderson got a hand to it, he could not keep it out, such was the force of the shot. The goal gave Charlton the lead, but a second half comeback saw the Addicks beaten by the current league leaders.

Charlton do have another part in the competition – the Mitre Goal of the Year - as Sylvan Ebanks-Blake’s goal for Wolves last season at The Valley is also one of the 20-gaols in contention. That goal saw Ebanks-Blake outpace Paddy McCarthy to win the ball, before cutting past him on the bye line and firing past Nicky Weaver.

McCarthy himself even gets into the competition, with his hopeful punt from 40 yards flying past the Derby keeper earlier this season, but we won’t be voting for him will we.
