IN honour of Jed Wallace’s wonderful goal at York, I asked last week: What’s the best Pompey goal you’ve ever seen? - writes Steve Bone.

Not the most important – the most spectacular.

So many wonder-goals have you recounted, I need two weeks to list them all.

Next week I’ll come to the five that got the most votes – but how about these 28 for starters? Deep breath...

Matt Taylor’s 45-yarder at Sunderland; David Norris’ point-saving volley at Southampton; Mark Chamberlain’s long run and chip at Plymouth in 89; Noe Pamarot’s screamer at Newcastle; Glen Johnson’s chest and volley at home to Hull; Kevin O’Callaghan’s solo run at Huddersfield in 1985; Vince Hilaire’s flying header on his debut v Blackburn; Robert Prosinecki at home to Wolves; Steve Claridge’s over-the-shoulder volley, also at home to Wolves; Andres D’Alessandro at Charlton; Robbie Pethick at the Milton v unidentified opponents (can anyone help!?); Nigel Quashie at home to Norwich; Kevin Harper at home to Norwich (must admit I don’t recall this one); Darren Anderton in the Cup semi at Highbury; Phil Ashworth’s back-to-goal chip v Bradford at Fratton; Kevin Dillon’s centre-circle volley at Blackburn in the Cup (my own favourite); Kevin Dillon against Villa in the Cup; Bjorn Kristennsen’s 35-yard piledriver (possibly v Peterborough in a Cup game); Alan McLoughlin at Peterborough; John Durnin’s 30-yard scissor kick at West Brom; Teddy Sheringham’s header v Bolton in early Prem days; Jimmy Carter at Wolves with an orange ball; Lualua off the post v Southampton; Trebilcock v Arsenal; Jamie Vincent at Barnsley; Anderton v Orient, Crouch v Stoke ... and Patrick Agyemang at Oxford the other night. Phew!
