Scoring goals against a rival team is good. Scoring beautiful goals against a rival team is great.

The Revolution have made a habit of scoring amazing goals against arguably their biggest rivals, the Chicago Fire, throughout their history. Juan Agudelo's goal against Chicago last Saturday was only the Revolution's most recent wonder strike against their mid-western rivals.

Here's a rundown of some memorable goals against Chicago:

#s 6, 5, 4 Steve Ralston's trio against the Fire- Fast forward to :25 to see some of the Revolution's best goals against Chicago. The first is Steve Ralston's flick past Henry Ring in the final game of the 2004 regular season. That game-winning goal sent the Revolution to the playoffs. The next goal is arguably the best freekick every taken by a Revolution player. Ralston bangs a shot from a good 25 yards out in another 2004 regular season game. The last Ralston goal on this list features a dazzling pirouette for a slick finish in a 2-1 win back in 2007.

#3- Diego Fagundez' cannon- With nothing but pride to play for at the end of last season, the Revolution left it all on the field in their regular season finale against Chicago. Diego Fagundez scored in the 17th minute from 22 yards, beating Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson to the far post.

#2- Agudelo's nifty flick- The most recent wonder goal versus Chicago. This one gives #1 a run for its money.

#1 Taylor Twellman on his bike- This maybe the best goal in Revolution history. It may be the best bicycle kick in league history. It only makes sense that one of the best American players in the history of soccer would score a goal like this. It was a big goal not only because of how Twellman was able to execute it, but also because it stood as the game winner in the 2007 Eastern Conference Final.
