David Luiz is a central defender, but at times this season he’s also been deployed as a midfielder. As many of you know, Luiz has also been taken free kicks for Chelsea this year, as opposed to, say, Frank Lampard, Oscar, or Eden Hazard. Now we know why.

Luiz hit this absolute rocket from about 30 yards to give Chelsea the lead over Fulham on Wednesday. What a beautifully struck goal by Sideshow Bob!

Definitely a goal of the month!


Relegation drama

QPR’s relegation battle against Wigan was ugly at first — including a red card for Bobby Zamora’s kick to the head of Jordi Gomez — but then it was beautiful!

Loic Remy’s superb strike in the 85th had sent QPR on its way to a priceless victory…

…but Wigan’s Shaun Maloney denied them the win with this fantastic free kick in the last minute of stoppage time! Both goals are deserved Goal of the Month nominees!!


Goal of the month? How about goal of the season!?

Aston Villa’s Matthew Lowton scored this screamer against Stoke City on Saturday, and what an important goal it was, too. Relegation-threatened Villa needed a win, and Lowton’s goal in the 87th gave them one!


You’ve been waiting all month, and here they are: the top ten goals of the month of March.

It was definitely a good month of stunning strikes!


From the Champions League (Lionel Messi’s wonder strike against Milan) to the CONCACAF Champions League (Djimi Traore’s rocket vs. Tigres), we saw a lot of wonderful Goal of the Month nominees this week.

Check them all out at once, and don’t forget to use the twitter hashtag #GOMonFOX whenever you see a great goal!


United, Chelsea deliver the goals in entertaining draw

Sunday’s FA Cup quarterfinal between Manchester United and Chelsea was one of the highest quality, and we think we speak for all neutral fans that a replay next week sounds like a wonderful idea!

We thought we found our Goal of the Month nominee today with this entry from Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who gave Manchester United an early lead with a header from an impossible angle….

…but then Wayne Rooney had to be all like “You think that’s good?” and responded with a Goal of the Month nominee of his own, just 6 minutes later! United looked in the clear…

…until the second half, when Eden Hazard got Chelsea started on the comeback with this fantastic curler from outside the box!
