Thoughts on Sunday's Premiership Clashes

adebayor 0506birmingham Thoughts on Sunday's Premiership ClashesWell, we always thought this Premiership season was going to be close, and after this weekend’s matches we now have proof of that.

While the Chelsea against Liverpool match left a bitter taste in my mouth, the Manchester United against Arsenal battle was another experience altogether. Beautiful flowing football, combined with sublime skills and plenty of drama, this was a match of REAL English football.

The less said about the Chelsea Liverpool match the better. Drogba’s amazing turn and volley is what separated the sides, and what an incredible goal it was. Liverpool, meanwhile, will be hanging their head in shame after having so many chances to clinch this match.

As with previous Chelsea against Liverpool league matches, the display on the field was anticlimatic. Whenever I watched Chelsea in this match, they seemed to be just walking around the park, while Liverpool were venomous — but impotent — in attack.

Back to the United against Arsenal match, what a shame that Fox waited until the third minute of the match to show the United lineup, and disturbed the action again in the sixth minute when they showed the Arsenal lineup on-screen. It reminds me of ESPN and ABC’s antics from the World Cup.
