Call for nominations: The best NYCFC goals of all time

What’s the best banger in New York City history? We want to hear from you.

Since New York City FC’s inaugural season in 2015, the Boys in Blue have scored a lot of goals—408 across all competitions to be exact.

The first of which was a delightful curler off the right boot of Mix Diskerud away at Orlando City eight years ago. The most recent was a left footed, near-post blast from young fullback, Chris Gloster, home at Yankee Stadium against San Jose Earthquakes.

But, as for the 406 goals in between…well it can be hard to keep track of them all. David Villa logged 80 goals in an NYCFC shirt, Taty Castellanos has already racked up 51 strikes of his own, and Maxi Moralez has found the back of the net 30 times himself. Not only did these three players score a ton of goals for The Pigeons, they scored some beautiful goals in the process.

That prompts the question: What is the best NYCFC goal of all time? Is it one from the three usual suspects? Or does it belong to one of the other 47 goal scorers in the club’s history?

For that, we turn to the Hudson River Blue community.

We are asking you to nominate the greatest goals scored for NYCFC by filling out the form below. We will winnow down the list, and next week we will ask you to vote and decide on the winners.

Feel free to make multiple nominations—there have been so many good goals over the years it’s hard to propose just one.

You have one week to make your nominations: The submission period begins with the publication of this article, and will end on Monday, May 16, at 11:59 pm.
