I was also at OT that day...watching Mario ,in slow motion..steady himself and calmly despatch a measured right foot push-kick into the corner of the net .in front of the Stretford end..that memory will live with me for ever....My most enjoyable goal was Balotelli's first during the 6-1 at Old Trafford. It was just the total contempt he showed by stroking it into the net. I was lucky to be there and remember thinking I never dreamed I would see the day when we played with such arrogance (and brilliance) during an away Derby match. Mario was wildly unpredictable but on his day he was a bit of a genius wasn't he?
The best I have seen was probably Gundogan's after all those passes in last season's home Derby. It was ridiculously great. Like watching a film.
