“AGUEROOOOOO… I swear, you’ll never see anything like this ever again!”
On this day in 2012, Sergio Aguero scored one of the most dramatic Premier League goals of all time.
Manchester City headed into their final game of the 2011/12 season top of the Premier League by goal difference, and only needed to match Man United’s result against Sunderland on the final day of the season to be crowned champions for the first time in 44 years – but it looked as if QPR had ruined their big day.
With City lurching into injury time 2-1 down to the west Londoners in front of a stunned Etihad crowd, United were beating the Black Cats 1-0 to leave their rivals needing two goals.
Edin Dzeko duly equalised in the 92nd minute to set up a grandstand finale… and with United players nervously awaiting news at the Stadium of Light, Mario Balotelli teed up Aguero… and the rest is history.
City fans at the stadium will never forget that goal, or the sheer noise from the stands as the ball hit the back of the net – but for millions watching Sky Sports’ coverage from home, that famous moment will always be associated with the voice of one man: Martin Tyler.
The legendary commentator rose to the occasion with one word – “AGUERO!”, with as many o’s as you want to add on depending on your love for City – ringing out as the striker lashed the ball past Paddy Kenny.” Evening Standard 13/0513th May 2020 at 2:29 pm #112242Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant514 pts
Quite possibly the most “dramatic” moment in Premiership history… don’t matter who you support!!!
Have to admit, with my well known love for YooUtd, it certainly wasn’t the worst moment in Premiership history either. Oh, how I larffed!! 🙂13th May 2020 at 2:41 pm #112243
Great moment, great year and great month that!
7 days later Chelsea added the Champions League to the FA Cup!😊13th May 2020 at 3:37 pm #112244Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant514 pts
Hmmm… can’t say I’m too fussed about those events. In fact, I’d completely forgot about those moments in footballing history until you just reminded me… 🙂13th May 2020 at 4:13 pm #112245
The best I can say is “I was there”. I have never heard a noise like it anywhere, anytime, more than just a loud cheer mixed up with emotion, shrieks and the whole atmospheric accumulation. Two players were also important apart from Sergio…Dzeko and Ballotelli lets not forget them but the whole team deserved the win after a somewhat City”give away” game almost consumed us16th May 2020 at 2:12 am #112968CriticalmaKParticipant42 pts
Ok, things have changed since that time. City have gone from hopeful rivals of ours to just definite rivals and then this season we’ve traded places. It’s been eventful but I guess we’ve developed some negativity towards eachother and that’s why I’m mentioning it here.
I didn’t see this whole thing live but I watched it afterwards and I also saw the youtube videos that showed both sets of supporters and I definitely favoured City then… that aside though, I will tell you… I still remember and Im not exaggerating, the hairs all stood up on my neck, the first time I watched Agueros goal. This isn’t me saying it was X amazing, this is a real, literal memory.
somethings are so good that you just can’t help but be sucked right in.16th May 2020 at 10:07 am #113232
As the ball moved forward, I think it was Kompany, I thought last chance, the flurry that happened in the next few seconds kind of numbed me, when the goal went in I could not even cheer, then when I saw Augerro wheel away and the net still rippling, I just let go. A full 5 minutes I still could not take it in
Mak..good to see you back, hope you are taking care.16th May 2020 at 1:58 pm #113292
Brian, what a moment. No League title since 1968. United having were about to lift the PL trophy at Sunderland, 2 City goals in stoppage time, the winning goal at 93 minutes, 20 seconds snatches the PL trophy from United’s grasp. Be suprised if anyone in the PL ever betters that.16th May 2020 at 5:55 pm #113304
Nine…made up for all the years of suffering.. I do believe though, as much as the money invested had a big say, I believe the culture change in Management has had a bigger effect and I am not just talking about Pep The Club as a whole has changed dramatically, I know that because I have seen so many changes but the last decade has seen improvement in all aspects of the club.16th May 2020 at 5:57 pm #11330516th May 2020 at 6:55 pm #113312
Brian , you can relive that game at 5pm tomorrow on Sky.17th May 2020 at 8:28 am #113321

Brian, don’t you need Martin Tyler’s commentary for full enjoyment.
