VIDEO: Vote For The Best Goal Of The Week (September 6-12) and 101 Great Goals invite you to vote for the best strike of the week...

After the lull that was the never-ending international break, club football roared back into life with the most surprising weekend of the season to date across Europe.

In England Everton pulled a Manchester United to hold the Red Devils to a 3-3 draw while Blackpool took everyone by surprise winning at Newcastle. In Spain Hercules sent shockwaves round the world beating Barcelona on their own turf, while on Sunday Malaga bagged five in a crazy first half at Real Zaragoza.

In Italy, meanwhile, Juventus and Sampdoria took part in a 3-3 thriller that epitomised the term ding-dong, a day after Cesena made a mockery of AC Milan's millions winning 2-0.

Not only were there jaw-dropping matches, there was a ridiculously large amount of great goals to drool over too.

Every goal in our top ten this week is special, kicking off with a remake of that Spanish U19 free-kick from last summer. A couple of howitzers fill up positions two and three while a must-be candidate for top honours this week occupies number four. After that solo stunner, yet another pops up in place five.

An unstoppable 40-yarder is at number six, two more individual pieces of brilliance roll in at numbers seven and eight, the team goal of the week slots in at spot nine, leaving the standard acrobatic beauty closing out the list.

Of those relegated to the bench, Luis Aguiar, John Goossens and Sebastian Giovinco will probably be most disappointed netting a trio of incredible free-kicks.

Please remember, all we do is pick the top ten goals and put them in chronological order. We leave it up to you to decide which goal is the best.

Enough talk. All that's left to say is sit back and enjoy! And ofcourse, don't forget to scroll down and vote for your favourite.
