Let’s not mess about.
Robin van Persie’s volley against Aston Villa was out-of-the-world, unstoppable ridonkulousness. But goal of the season? Was it even the best volley we’ve seen all season?
World football has showered a stunning array of volleys over 2012/13, so whilst van Persie’s effort was sublime it is happily not in a class of it’s own.
Celebrating the art of scoring without letting the ball hit the floor, here are some of the best volleys from the last year of football.
