Goals of the Weekend

Football News

The much-anticipated Premier League kick-off arrived on Saturday afternoon, while Barcelona and Real Madrid waited until Sunday before getting their La Liga season started.

Football didn’t fail to bring us the goods either, with surprising thrashings all round and some great stories to kick-off the start of what should be a cracker of a season.

A few special goals went in around the footballing world and GMF have picked out the best for your viewing pleasure.

See what you think of these strikes:

Michu, Swansea City v QPR

The Spaniard joined the Welsh outfit from La Liga side Rayo Vallecano for just £2million a month ago and showed he could well be an astute signing by new Swans boss Michael Laudrup. He scored two at Loftus Road in a 5-0 mauling of Mark Hughes’ side, with his second particularly classy.

Demba Ba, Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur

The Senegal striker was not in the best of scoring form leading into the Toon’s curtain raiser at St James’ Park, he had failed to find the net for 14 consecutive games. It took nearly an hour for the opener to come, but Ba’s strike was well worth the wait.


Zoltan Gera, West Brom v Liverpool

An inspired Baggies performance made sure Liverpool’s poor end to last season continued into this. Gera’s stunning hit from the edge of the area got the ball rolling.


Steven Davis, Southampton v Manchester City

It was ultimately not enough for Saints to pull off a shock win against the Champions, but it had their fans dreaming of glory for a few minutes. A sweeping breakaway caused havoc for the City defence and Davis was on hand to drill a fine strike into the far corner and but his side 2-1 up, though they eventually went down 3-2.


David Villa, Barcelona v Real Sociedad

Emotions ran high in Camp Nou on Sunday evening as Villa came on with 15 minutes to go to make his first appearance after eight months of recovering from a broken leg. A nice exchange with Iniesta was finished superbly and the Spain striker showed a picture of his family on a t-shirt in his celebration.
