Goal of the Season - Part 5

All this week on tottenhamhotspur.com, we have been giving you the rundown on our top five goals of the 2008-09 season.

Today we have your final option, but before we reveal it, let us have a quick look at some of the strikes that just missed out on the vote.

Who can forget Jamie O'Hara's late belter that secured the three points at West Ham back in December?

Jermain Defoe returned to The Lane with a bang, quite literally, when he smashed home the equaliser against former club Portsmouth in memorable fashion in January.

Giovani Dos Santos did his best to burst the net with his first goal for the Club against Shakhtar Donetsk in February.

And Aaron Lennon also scored a beauty that month from outside of the box against Hull, setting us on our way to a vital win that night.

But for the joy this no doubt gave Spurs fans everywhere on the day, as well as the quality of the goal, here is your final nominee...

Luka Modric v Chelsea, Saturday March 21, White Hart Lane

A memorable day, a memorable goal - this strike summed up everything about the way we were playing at the time.

We'd hit our best form of the season and were on a five-game unbeaten run when we welcomed title-chasing London rivals Chelsea to The Lane on a beautiful sunny day.

Our performance had been impressive, but the scores were still level going into the second half when Aaron Lennon, who had been terrorising Ashley Cole all afternoon, attacked the full-back and put a decent ball into the box.

It looked to be heading for Robbie Keane, but from out-of-sight, little Luka crept round from behind him to sweep a sublime shot right footed into the bottom corner of Petr Cech's net.

The goal sent the White Hart Lane crowd into raptures, and although we were hanging on for the rest of the game, it turned out to surely be the result of the season.

TIME TO VOTE!

First of all, let's have a quick re-cap of the options:

Option 1: David Bentley v Arsenal
An unforgettable 40-yard effort in the North London derby.

Option 2: Tom Huddlestone v Dinamo Zagreb
Paul Scholes eat your heart out! This volley from a corner was as good a goal as you'll see.

Option 3: Jermaine Jenas v Arsenal
A goal of sheer quality that put doubts in the Gunners' minds and gave us the belief to snatch an unlikely equaliser at the Emirates.

Option 4: Aaron Lennon v Boro
Move of the season? The football certainly had the Teesiders mesmerised before the winger went through to finish coolly.

Option 5: Luka Modric v Chelsea
The goal that gave us our result of the season and a memorable victory against the Blues.

Now you have the whole weekend to think back and then vote for your favourite Spurs goal of 2008-09.
