We might yet see some more wonder goals on Sunday's thrilling finale to the 2011-12 campaign - but for now we're just focusing on the goals that have hit the onion bag before the top-tier curtain comes down.

In no particular, here are 10 of our favourite goals (if you think we've missed a 'worldy' let us know with a story comment):

Papiss Cisse (Chelsea v NEWCASTLE, May 2)

The pick of several fine strikes in Cisse's red-hot goalscoring run, the Senegal striker followed up his stunning opener at Stamford Bridge with this outrageous second in stoppage time, a banana shot hit with the outside of his right foot from just outside the corner of the area.

Luis Suarez (Norwich v LIVERPOOL, April 28)

Bringing back memories of David Beckham's famous goal against Wimbledon in 1996, Suarez completed a superb hat-trick when he collected the ball by the halfway line, took a couple of steps forward and sent an audacious chip straight over a hapless John Ruddy and into the net.

Peter Crouch (STOKE v Manchester City, March 24)

Crouch provided compelling evidence that he is more than just an aerial threat - and sparked debate about whether or not he deserved an England recall - with this spectacular effort. The 6ft 7in frontman flicked up a header from Jermaine Pennant and twisted to volley home a dipping angled shot from 25 yards.

Sebastian Coates (QPR v LIVERPOOL, March 21)

The bright spot on a night of gloom for Liverpool at Loftus Road was Coates' memorable goal. The Uruguayan defender put his team - who eventually lost 3-2 - 1-0 up with a brilliant scissor kick executed just by the penalty spot after the hosts had failed to clear a corner.

Hatem Ben Arfa (NEWCASTLE v Bolton, April 9)

Having completely bamboozled his marker with a delicious turn when he collected the ball inside his own half, Ben Arfa powered forward, slipped past several more men and made it all the way into Bolton's box, where he calmly slotted a shot past Adam Bogdan.

Bryan Ruiz (FULHAM v Everton, October 23)

Question marks have hung over the Cottagers' expensive Costa Rica forward this season, but there was no doubting the quality of Ruiz's effort against Everton, the 26-year-old producing an exquisite, almost nonchalant-looking chip to beat Tim Howard just three minutes after being sent on by Martin Jol as a substitute.

Fraizer Campbell (SUNDERLAND v Norwich, February 1)

Having marked his return to action after long-term injury with a sliding finish in an FA Cup game, Campbell made an even bigger splash in his Premier League comeback a few days later, taking a touch to control the ball before cracking in a sumptuous volley from outside the box.

Robin van Persie (ARSENAL v Everton, December 10)

One of so many highlights in van Persie's remarkable season, this was a particularly delightful strike, the Holland forward showing great technique as he watched Alex Song's lofted pass drop into the area and connected with it first-time to send a sublime left-footed volley in off the post.

Sergio Aguero (Norwich v MANCHESTER CITY, April 14)

The first of two goals for Aguero on the day in a 6-1 romp, the Argentina international collected a back-heel from his compatriot Carlos Tevez - who would eventually steal the headlines with a hat-trick - to complete a clever one-two and crashed the ball in from 20 yards out.

Edin Dzeko (Tottenham v MANCHESTER CITY, August 28)

In another commanding performance by City early in the season, Dzeko managed to find the net four times and his final effort was the best of the lot, the Bosnia-Herzegovina striker producing a beautiful shot from the edge of the box which sailed beyond the diving Brad Friedel into the top corner.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
