Karthik’s Observations – Premier League Week I


This last weekend, I had to miss the mouthwatering season start fixtures and had to move houses. So here is my late report based on the highlights I was able to catch online.


I cant believe this fellow was released by Manchester City. Facing their mini personnel crisis and lack of funds, I have no idea why City deemed him as surplus so early in the transfer season. (He is Brazilian for God’s sake!!). That screamer he scored against Fulham was out of the world. I know what you are gonna say, but a goal against Fulham is still a goal my friends. Also considering Hull’s impending struggle to stay up, a goal is going to be worth 2 points. This could have been the earliest relegation six-pointer game of the season.

I heard he was released for a lack of discipline and disruptive activities, but hey, the current city gaffer got the best out of Craig Bellamy!! if he cant get the best out of Geovanni, I don’t know who can!! Could I have a round of sarcastic applause for Man City here??

Newcastle United

A draw against the same United side that humiliated them last season is impressive whichever way you look at it. I still remember reading forum posts where many had a field day rebuking the goal celebrations of the Argentinian Spider Man wannabe. So who’s laughing now?? This is just the first game but things look good for Newcastle. The jury’s still out on the Newcastle defense though, as Man Utd hardly tested their rearguard and Fletcher of all people popped in to score a cheeky one past them. They are still 3 good players short of challenging for anything serious though.

Roman Abramovich

Portuguese full back -15 million

Portugese playmaker – 8 million

Portuguese national team Manager – (don’t know.. but I am sure Scolari can buy all writers and readers here 20 rounds of the most expensive beer in the world with his current pay cheque)

Expression on Abramovich’s face – priceless..(not really.. Id rather many many other things in the world.. but whatever)

and they say money can’t buy you happiness. (This is why I am not in Marketing)


Something is wrong.. I think what Tottenham need is not world class players but a witch doctor to change their luck. Daniel Levy if you are reading, I am available to change your fortunes for $5000 a week. But I know you wont sign me, cause I am unattached so I wont cost a buck in transfer fees and I know how much you like to throw around your money in transfer fees. You could try to find some decent defenders though. I am sorry did Modric play the game??
