FanZoner Harry Moylan wrote a blog on Saturday, explaining the path he took to becoming an Arsenal fan. It's quite a story given that he was a young Manchester United supporter at the time.

But, along came Dennis Bergkamp and after a moment of brilliance from the Dutchman, Harry swapped the red of the North West for the red of North London.

It's amazing the impact a goal can have on you as a child. It can remind you of previous great sides, moments away from the field or like Harry, it can shape your footballing future.

It left me for a moment to consider what goal really stood out for me during my younger days.

And in the end, there was always only going to be one, from another Dutchman - Marco van Basten.

You know which one I'm on about already don't you? Yes that's right, Euro '88 v USSR and 'that' volley.

The beauty of choosing a goal from your younger years is that it doesn't have to come from 'your' team.

And I just wonder how many of today's school children will pick out Neymar's volley against Mexico at the Confederations Cup last week in 10 years' time as the goal that made them fall in love with the beautiful game.

Having asked everyone here at TEAMtalk Towers, we want to know which one stands out for you? Have a think and post your comments below. You might just surprise yourselves.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
