Gunners Show Grit, Go Top

At the start of the season, all eyes were firmly on Chelsea and Manchester Utd to see who would bitch slap who and win the squabble to call dibs on the Premier League trophy come May. In doing so, [myself included], Arsenal’s young guns, their inspirational captain and their nutty Professor Wenger were overlooked almost...

Predictions – Prem League – Week 22 cont.

Mid week sees a take two of the matches that were meant to be played [here], before God decided to dump snow over Europe and almost wipe out an entire round of football… on the up side though, now we get a shite load of matches packed into every conceivable calendrical orophus till mid February,...

Surprised? Of Course They Were!

I’ve been so used to seeing Villa concede goals lately, that I had to do a double take when I saw the final score and highlights of last night’s game against Bolton. My particular favourite was John Carew’s cause he out muscled two defenders and ‘Hulked’ his way into the goal leaving the Wanderers defense...

Hard Win Puts United Top

Hard fought matches (and Berbatov’s flying bicycle side-kicks) are the flavour of the month at Old Trafford in October and I can’t seem to work it out. Either United haven’t fully awoken yet or they’re biding their time till Christmas and will come to life causing unsuspecting teams to drop points faster than a fat...

Livin On The Edge

Shit, talk about close! Even though the match was pretty much over at 4-0, Bolton did what Liverpool couldn’t a few days ago and scored three goals… in the space of eight minutes! Talk about a shock. It reminded me of the time I took your sister home and finished her off in eight minutes...

Review – Bolton 3 v 2 Tottenham

Just like my mum walking in on me and the missus going at it hammer and tong, this match caught me by surprise and I was almost expecting Tottenham with their new January recruits to walk out of the Reebok Stadium with all three points. Turns out Kevin Davies and my mum had other ideas…...

Review – Bolton 0 v 1 Manchester United

A late goal by Dimitar Berbatov has propelled Manchester United to the top of the Premier League table and without doubt bought a realisation to Rafa Benitez that his Liverpool mob have to work extra hard if they’re to stay in contention for top spot. Admittedly, it took United 90 minutes to break down the...

Review – Aston Villa 4 v 2 Bolton

Aston Villa jumped back into the top 4 with a more than convincing win against Bolton overnight but more importantly, their key players the likes of Barry, Abonglahor, Young and Laursen showed signs that they’ve started to hit top form… great signs for Martin O’Neils men leading into the Christmas period. I especially liked the...

Review – Bolton 0 v 2 Chelsea

I like spectacular goals, especially by spectacular players, but we just don’t see them enough these days… so take heed all you supertars! Sure there are long range efforts that rattle cross bars and wrong foot goal keepers… but acrobatics in football is a dying art form and you just don’t see it enough these...

Review – Tottenham 2 v 0 Bolton

As if I wasn’t proven wrong enough already, this topped the cake and added the cherry. Tottenham got their first win of the season, while Pavlyuchenko bagged his first goal… shit, it only took him 6 weeks! Bent added insult to injury to round off a much improved performance for Tottenham. Maybe Redknapp’s tenure won’t...

Review – Manchester Uniter 2 v Bolton 0

Uh oh! Cristiano’s back! WARNING: Defenders stay on your feet inside the box.Ronaldo and Rooney opened their accounts on the weekend, while new boy Berbatov is still queuing up and Tevez, well he’s been as menacing as ever. Wow… that’s some strike force! Almost as good as the Fantastic Four, only without the chick… but...
