Top 10 goals of the week

With a name that arouses images of a bastard child between the present Aston Villa strikeforce, perhaps this week’s top goal of the week came from Barnet’s Ashley Carew (pictured), who scored a free-kick from his own half in his side’s 3-1 opening day defeat at home to Chesterfield.

While Carew enjoyed more than his fair share of luck in getting himself off the mark this season, there is no mistaking the intention of these strikes which make up our goals of the week.

1. Darron Gibson (v Peterborough, Aug. 4, 2008)

3. Semih Senturk (v MTK Budapest, Aug. 6, 2008)

4. Luis Suarez (v Arsenal, Aug. 8, 2008)

5. Yoann Gourcuff (v Caen, Aug. 9, 2008)

6. Valeri Bojinov (v AC Milan, Aug. 9, 2008) (pictured)
