In case you're going to watch the match later, I'll give you the obvious reminder that this video is a spoiler. Pretty nice schtuff, though, this goal.

I don't think there's any debate over this goal, the goal of the season by a
mile... with few rounds left, it will be tough to beat, brilliant, BRILLIANT
goal!!!

Great goal, but why are goal of the season candidates almost always
long range efforts? Is it a human obsession with shiny objects? :-)
Solo dribbled goals and goals resulting great movement and passing are
technically much harder than kicking the living daylights out of the
ball and hoping it goes in.

I'd say there's an almost complete lack of dribbling in the PL, well quality
dribbling that sees great solo goals as a result... not sure why team goals
are overlooked, there have been some superb goals over the years, but I
think the end result is usually a low tapped in shot which doesn't appeal to
most despite the lead up play. (I'm not one)

I'm open when it comes to type of goal, the only time I start to be biased
is when there's an exceptional piece of skill involved, like Rooney v Man
City or Bergkamp v Newcastle... Cisse's goal of the season last year was
exactly how you describe the long shot above, but up until then I'm sure Ben
Arfa's solo goal was run away leader if you excuse the pun!!!

Good point, though maybe what you describe belongs in another category? And yet, "Build-up of the season" just doesn't sound so good, does it?

Messi's first goal against Milan at the Camp Nou is goal of the season, IMO.

It's not as easy as you make out. The problem with passing goals is for
some reason most directors cut out a lot of the build up play reducing
the number of passes so unless you see a match live and not in highlight
form you won't really know if you're seeing the whole picture.

There's less playing the ball out of defence in the EPL compared to
other leagues so when a 'keeper punts the ball into midfield and players
fight for it, it looks what it is - ugly.

To me a goal is a goal, regardless of whether it was scored from 40
yards or 1 yard out.

80% of my football viewing is limited to Liverpool games so I don't
have a big sample, but in that category alone there have been some
excellent goals this season that are technically superior to that long
range Villa goal but won't get that kind of adulation because they
weren't blasted from 40 yards out.
Examples:
1) Suarez's first goal away to Wigan - superb through ball in a
crowded defense by Coutinho, great first touch by Suarez, a dummy shot
freezing Al Habsi and then an ice cool finish. Perfect execution start
to finish
2) Enrique's goal here, start around minute 10.40:
http://www.soccer-blogger.com/2013/02/17/liverpool-vs-swansea-5-0-hig...
3) Henderson's goal against Aston Villa 2 weeks back, after Coutinho's
marvelous through ball

I'm sure many other teams have scored some great "unnoticed" goals
like these.

And the EPL has wiped the goal off that link.
