This week's round-up features the Tottenham winger's recent showreel, signature slam dunks and two odd own goals

Thanks for all your suggestions on last week's blog. Here are a few highlights from this week.

Gareth Bale on the run

It took Gareth Bale 24 appearances over three seasons to win a game in a Tottenham shirt. He's making up for that now. After his half-pitch run against Norwich came a top-corner blaster against West Brom and then he knocked in a free-kick and slotted another home against Newcastle. He also scored a brace against Lyon before his virtuoso performance at West Ham. No wonder his team-mate Scott Parker thinks Arsenal will be "deflated" ahead of the north London derby on Sunday.

Bayern v Bremen

It's not often one match provides so much entertainment, but Bayern Munich's 6-1 thrashing of Werder Bremen proved exceptional. Bayern produced enough dinked passes to fill an end-of-season DVD.

Backheeling bloopers

What's worse than making your defender backheel the ball into your own net? Backheeling it in yourself.

A signature slam dunk

The slam dunk makes a return after popular demand on last week's blog. This 540° spinner is impressive, but not even Clark Kent could have stopped this guy.
