I couldn’t start this week’s post without talking about Raheem’s sending off. Someone tell me what is the point of Mike Dean? I don’t know which will give me more joy, the day Mike Dean retires from refereeing or Arsenal win the league again or the Champions league for the first time.. He will claim he was following the letter of the law but like Alan clearly pointed out on MOTD if that was the case 7 City players should have been carded. Mike Dean probably saw himself making the headlines with the thought of a second yellow for Raheem and he certainly has! I mean he has taken 9 lines in today’s post, anyways to proper football talk..
Arsenal are the same and it’s because the same guy is still in charge that is my conclusion. This exact squad given to the likes of Pochettino or Conte won’t turn out performances of the last two weeks. For starters they will get the line up right. To think the Ox figures he’s good enough to play in the middle good luck to him getting into that Liverpool team that just handed his team or soon to be former team a pasting. If not for Cech could have been 7. Not even winning 2 FA cups this season can disguise how shitty things are at this football club and one is supposed to stomach this for the next two years, thank God for my new found indifference, I predicted a loss on Friday but not a pasting.. I am leaving it there don’t want to be repeating myself from previous posts. It’s not even February and they are this bad already.. Get rid of the Ox if he won’t sign he is really not that good!
United are getting it right with three wins out of three and they have Zlatan back, I am not sure that helps their new forward power play but we will see, Zlatan is never a bad addition to any team . Next stop for Jose and his men Stoke.
You can’t make an “Allardyced” side play like Ajax someone should tell De Boer, speeding towards a sack it seems. They are not that loyal at Crystal Palace.
Bilic looking dazed a must have some kind of link with the way his team are currently playing; like a dazed bunch. I don’t see how Joe Hart can maintain his so called number one England goalkeeper status considering he is at the bottom of the table and has conceded the most goals in the league this season.
Newcastle have their first win thanks to WestHam and Huddersfield dropped their first points but are yet to lose or concede. Spurs dropped points in the last minute at their away home ground and I honestly don’t see them reaching the heights of last season playing at Wembley.
The game between Stoke and West Brom reminded me why I giggle when some people proclaim the Premier League is the best in the world! I beg to differ but I guess money dictates a lot of things these days.
City Scraped past Bournemouth in a game that should have been won in the first half, Pep’s side not putting away chances is going to hurt them big time this season and I have already discussed the ridiculous red for Raheem.
Hmmm.. what else have I missed oh yes Everton have spent loads of money and are still afraid to attack the opposition. Were outplayed playing a 10 man city last week despite leading 1 0 and didn’t have a shot on target against Chelsea till the 89th minute!
It’s international weekend so noPremier League action till the upper week. As it stands United are my pick for the title as they are efficient and pragmatic. Off to gloat about my fantasy league points my only present reason for joy every football weekend.
