Premier League Odds and Sods 31 March 2008

Cristiano […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 17 March 2008

Derby 0 – Manchester United 1 This match epitomizes the season for both clubs.  Derby worked but weren’t quite good enough.  United’s only enemy was their own cuteness.  Ronaldo should have scored at least three, or more according to his own verbal tally. Birmingham 1 – Newcastle 1 The result […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 25 Feb 2008

Arsenal 2- Birmingham 2 Eduardo’s injury – a horrific broken leg – stole the headlines.   But, it did not decisively affect the outcome.  Luck controlled much of it.  Birmingham capitalized upon one free kick – a questionable call – and one penalty – a blatantly wrong call.  Fabregas had two […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 12 Feb 2008

It was night of black armbands and barren kits in Manchester, which only served to emphasize the sponsorship everywhere else as Man City shocked Man United 2-1 at Old Trafford.  It is no coincidence that most of Man U’s losses come without Wayne Rooney on the pitch.  Ronaldo can score […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 4 Feb 2008

After this weekend a Google search for “Sven” and “Up the Arse” won’t lead you astray as Arsenal defeated Manchester City 3-1 away from home to move to the top of the table. Adebayor dropped a deuce, scoring in his eighth straight match. Eduardo also controlled a ball magnificently with […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 21 Jan 2008

Newcastle buzzed with electricity.  The entire town pitched in, stealing Burger King hats and spray painting them black and white.  The Geordie Messiah took the pitch to a rockstar’s welcome.  Mike Ashley ordered a whopper, but he didn’t have it his way as Newcastle drew Bolton 0-0 at St. James […]

Odds and Sods 3 Jan 2008

“There’s only one Titus Bramble” chanted the Wigan faithful, and he made the difference, earning a point in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.  Torres scored the initial goal, which salvaged Liverpool a point, but they have to be extremely disappointed with yet another poor result at “fortress” Anfield, winning only […]
