The Goal of the Season award is up and running.
But with more than 150 goals to choose from, who made the short-list for the 2013/14 award?
So far in our list of ten, we've had...
Goal A: Yaya Toure's clinical curler against Viktoria Plzen
Next up on the list is Aleksandar Kolarov's rocket against Leicester City in the Capital One Cup back in December.
With just seven minutes gone, the Blues were awarded a free-kick 25 yards from goal. Needing no second invitation, the set-piece specialist stepped up to unleash an unstoppable effort past Kasper Schmeichel and into the top corner.
The strike's power and precision portrayed pure perfection and paved the way for the visitors to sail into a three-goal lead before the hosts pulled back a consolation on 77 minutes.
Feast your eyes upon the Serbian's stunner here:
There will be one goal per day featuring the 10 best strikes of the season and we will then have a recap of the full 10 in one video before voting opens for one week. The winner will be revealed at City Live 2014.
Voting begins 30 June on mcfc.co.uk.
City Live - details and ticket information
The inaugural Club awards and music party was held last August and was the perfect start to what would prove to be a title-winning campaign and City Live 2014 is set to be even bigger and better.
Packed with special guests from the world of sport, music and entertainment, City hope to build on the success of last year’s event, that saw a live audience of 5,000 Blues fans treated to a night of comedy from funny man and lifelong supporter Jason Manford, plus music from chart sensation, Miles Kane.
The blue carpet will be well and truly rolled out on 14 August, when City Live once again takes centre stage at the iconic Manchester Central, in the heart of the city.
Gongs up for grabs include Etihad Player of the Year in association with MCFC Supporters Club (1894), Under-21 Player of the Year, and Goal of the Season.
It will also be the first chance for fans to get up close and personal with their heroes, too, when new Club signings will be presented to the City faithful.
Inspired by shows such as the MTV Music Awards, City Live 2014 will showcase what’s in store for the 2014/15 season, both on and off the pitch, whilst connecting local and global fans like never before.
City has once again enlisted the support of lifelong Blue and funny man, Jason Manford, who will host and compere the evening with his no holds barred approach.
