The week in football featured the start of this seasons Champion's League, which had fans and players alike jumping for joy.

The beginning of footballing proceedings saw more of the same as last year, as Madrid further solidified their place as favourites.

Elsewhere in the world, women's football was kicking goals as the Australian national side sold out their game against Brazil...

... and wowed fans with a stunning goal and an outstanding performance.

Fans in the US also impressed as Atlanta shattered an attendance record.

Back in the Premier League, Crystal Palace attempted to steady their ship by appointing experienced manager Roy Hodgson. The decision to bring in the former England gaffer raised a few eyebrows ...

... especially after his first match in the hotseat yielded no improvement from his struggling men.

Liverpool also failed to impress, as Burnley manager Sean Dyche extended his impressive start to the season with a 1-1 draw to the Reds.

Arsenal were able to show some signs of life following their bad loss to Liverpool, as they held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw away from home.

But it was Manchester United who closed out the match day in style, as they watched their cross-town rivals thump Watford 6-0 and attempted to replicate it as best they could, furthering Everton's early season misery.

And that was your last 7 days in football! (in 140 characters or less)
