Back after the international break (or as I call it a football entertainment nap) the Premier League is in full swing. And as my predictive powers are in full fail mode over at firstdownuk.com, I’m sure this will be fairly obvious punditry. Or Alan Shearer in 140 or less characters.
MNU 4 – 0 WIG. Sloppy Wigan suitably punished. Hernandez’s runs perfect. Good Buttner debut. Soft penalty though. #cleaveropinion
Side note: This must be Man U’s Capital One Cup/Early round FA Cup team. Looked good. #cleaveropinion
FUL 3 – 0 WBA. Definite red card. More like Odemwingie was trying to punt the guy. Baggies leaving too much room for Berba. #cleaveropinion
AVL 2 – 0 SWA.Villa looked something else. Much promise and great goals. Hoping Swansea don’t suffer an away form slump. #cleaveropinion
STO 1 – 1 MCY. Crouch showing his best accidental prowess. Garcia with an easy header. But great Begovic/Shawcross save #cleaveropinion
Side note: I can’t decide what Balotelli would do if he wasn’t a footballer. MMA Fighter? Body builder? Royal Bodyguard? #cleaveropinion
SUN 1 – 1 LIV. L’pool had the run of the game really but lacking the goals/will to score. Sunderland, good squad but wins? #cleaveropinion
Side note: I mean that I can’t see the, winning games, despite their squad. Talent on paper, yes but in games, not sure. #cleaveropinion
QPR 0 – 0 CHE. Handshake gets headlines but Cesar the real story. Great debut. Chelsea good start goes on, keep Hazard fit. #cleaveropinion
Side note: QPR!!! CESAR??? Seriously? How do they afford this? Also, their shirt numbers are ridiculous. Who decides this? #cleaveropinion
NOR 0 – 0 WHU. Vaz Te was pretty good. Norwich couldn’t score despite trying hard. Mad jaaskelainen saves though. #cleaveropinion
REA 1 – 3 TOT. Spurs deserved win really. Great goals from Defoe, good to see him on form. Not too sure on Spurs away kit. #cleaveropinion
EVE 2 – 2 NEW. What a game. Bad ref decisions, goals, emotion & some great passes & play from both. Classic football match. #cleaveropinion
Final Note: On a week where football was secondary to justice and apologies were made, the truth has proved the 96 will never walk alone.
