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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
