Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week (Ft. Samaras, Jerome, Walcott, Suarez & Moutinho)
Happy New Year and welcome to 2013!
The last week of 2012, as ever, featured plenty of wonder goals – the majority of which came from England with the brutal schedule of games entertaining supporters during the festive season.
We kick off with Jon Walters’ acrobatic goal v Liverpool and an overhead kick from Celtic hitman Georgios Samaras.
The list continues with the gloriously named Max Power, a Paolo Di Canio-esque Golazo and then a cracker from Australia.
Cameron Jerome then pops up with a wonder goal that secured Stoke a point at home to Southampton, with number seven a solo special from the SPL.
We round up with three famous names. Theo Walcott’s excellent third in Arsenal’s rout of Newcastle, Luis Suarez’s evisceration of Clint Hill and finally a quality strike from Joao Moutinho.
