Premier League Odds and Sods 31 March 2008

Arsenal beat Bolton 3-2 at the Reebok, keeping mathematical title hopes alive.  The Gunners, with 10 men on the pitch, scored three goals to reverse a 2-0 deficit.  Diaby deserved his red card for raised studs.  Poor fortune averaged itself through an unmarked corner, a penalty and a deflection. Cristiano […]

Manchester United 2 – Bolton 0 Cristiano Ronaldo may be masking United’s problems,  but he’s doing a damn good job.  His record-breaking brace bumped the Red Devils into sole possession of first – one they are not likely relinquish.  He now has something else in common with George Best, besides […]

Fact or Trash! Jan 2008 – Round 1

Before I get started, a quick correction on yesterday’s post – QPR’s deals for Connolly and Ephraim are permanent moves and not just loan deals. I also neglected to mention a couple of “future star” signings that were made by Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United as well as deals […]

Premier League 2007 Awards (Traditional)

Best Player: Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United It’s difficult to argue with this one.  Even if he does score a number of goals on penalties, he still produces a striker’s tally from midfield and, unlike Frank Lampard, he manages to look skillful while doing it.  The scariest thing is that he […]
