With the departure of our G-man, what moments/ goals stick in your mind...In no particular order-

-Last minute goal vs Swindon this year to give us the 3 points!
-His run from his own half against Brighton, before slotting the ball into the bottom right hand corner of the net.
-An amazing one-two, which had Mark in the Coventry area, only to lash the ball into the net.
-Another last minute goal; this time to clinch a point against Norwich.
-Marky G's first ever league game- notching up 2 goals on his debut vs the mighty Cheltenham.

Your thoughts?

His debut was pretty special too really....

Also liked his goal vs Brighton this season for personal reasons and his goal vs Brentford when we spanked them at home once.

The goal v Brighton for me. Very similar and on the same night as 'the' Walcott run for Arsenal in the champions league.

Walcott had to pass, whereas Gower finished his off in grand style. Guess who made the headlines the next day in the paper.

Not technically a great moment, but MG certainly played his part in making history at the Vetch in 2003, scoring, and being our 3rd red!

Without him, it'd have just been a boring 2-2 draw with 9 men

Yet another vote from me. Great goal, great night!

his debut against Cheltenham was also quality.

I shall really ( not ) miss the almost weekly sight of " The G-man " out on the touchline , having found some space , lifting his foot at the crucial moment only for the ball to roll under it and out for an opposition throw-in..... or the match earlier this season ( the opponents escape me ) when I watched very closely and Gower gave the ball away on the first 6 (six) times that he had the ball !! ... dont spose Brushy will miss being told to **** off by Gower when told to get his finger out ...... sorry to spoil the rose coloured love in girls .

Cant possibly not include that winner against Darlington...

A very good shout. The way he turned his man inside and out before lashing the ball into the top corner with his left foot to complete a remarkable second half comeback was mesmerising.

Yep, another vote for that. One of the best Southend goals I've ever seen. Awesome.

Especially as we were right behind him as he struck it, eh Matt? You could tell it was going in from the minute it left his boot.


Apologies for the terrible football cliché there, but it's true!
