Im sure Rivaldo was thinking exactly where he would put it with the bicycle kick and not just hitting and hoping, similar to Rooney .

Edit :That Sinclair goal is fkn class.

Trajectory of the ball (falling straight down slowly) makes Rivaldo's a hell of a lot easier to bicycle than Rooney's imo.

For Rivaldo to think to even get the ball in place to do what he did was class.

rivaldo is a football genius unlike the fat englishman. he knew what he was doing. rooney just jumped and the ball happened to rebound off his shin. lucky fat cheating ****

Bicycle Kicks That Are Better Than Wayne Rooney

Media Player

Some clips showing that players other than those on 200k a week at scum utd can score great goals from bicycle kicks.

Respectfully disagree.

Popping a ball up that is played straight at your chest is a relatively simple skill (and I'm a fucking ordinary outfield player).

The cross played in to Rooney was not only coming across him but curving away as well. He's actually moving away from goal himself when he leaves the ground.

fyi, I don't think it's the greatest premier league goal. Not even top 10. But it's still fucking awesome.

I respectfully despise both manure and rooney, but rooney's is a far better goal than rivaldo. To take a cross on the volley, from a scissor kick, across your body, as opposed to chesting it down and teeing it up to where you want it, is far more difficult.
The fact it came of his shin, and still got rammed into the top corner is a testament to how he got a 10/10 difficulty move, 9.8/10 (anything less and it wasnt going to score).

Agree to disagree

The actual kick Rooney pulled off was harder than Rivaldo's.... no doubt but Rivaldo's goal is still better imo. The ball was in a perfect position for him to bicycle kick only because of the skill and presence of mind he displayed leading up to the actual kick. Chesting a ball up is easy but having the skill to chest the ball into a perfect position, with interference from an opposing player, then having the skill to execute a perfect bicycle kick at the edge of the 18 yard box in under a second is crazy.

Same story with Berbatov's against Liverpool and Ronaldinho's.

Media Player


No point in comparing them to one touch hits like Rooney's...

I'm sick of talking about this, but rooney's was made infinitely easier by the fact that it hit kompany on the back, taking all the speed off the cross and dinking it up in the air.

A huge portion of bicycle kicks are luck which I don't rate them being mentioned as "greatest ever." Spectacular yes but I prefer the ones where they beat the defence and a knowing goalkeeper
