The results are in and it’s official, Jonny Howson’s wonderful strike against Nottingham Forest on Saturday has been voted Carrow Road’s best ever goal.
Following the midfielder’s sumptuous volley, as well as a special long-range effort from Wes Hoolahan in the same 5-1 triumph, we asked Norwich City fans where the goals ranked in Canaries history.
Howson’s goal topped the poll with 32 per cent of the vote, edging out Justin Fashanu’s famous thunderbolt from 27 years earlier, which received 29pc.
That 1989 goal in a top-flight game against Liverpool won the BBC’s goal-of-the-season award and the Canaries now look to have another contender for those type of awards.
In third place was Youssef Safri’s memorable long-range piledriver against Newcastle in 2005, with 13pc, ahead of a tie for fourth on 7pc between Robert Rosario’s thumping effort against Southampton in 1989 and Darren Huckerby’s weaving run of 2007.
