TOPIC: Weekend matches

posted 01-12-2012 17:30
Everton have held City to a draw at eastlands keeping up their impressive record against Man city. Michu and suarez are now joint top scorers in the premiership with ten each. Arsenal are now 10th.

West Brom lost the chance to go third, and lost to stoke. QPR drew 1-1 with Villa, Spurs won 3-0 at fulham to go fourth ahead of west brom on goals scored.

And the Brendalution trundles on with a 1-0 win over southampton. They are now only 2 points behind arsenal.

the reading-man united game is a farce. i'm watching the second half of bayern-dortmund now, it's like watching a different sport. the premier league has gone to shit.

Badstuber did his cruciate ligament just before half time and is likely done for the rest of the season.

Lovely goal from Kross after he slips by two defenders.

Hoeness must have been impressed by Chelsea. Lots of plastic flags in evidence at the Allianz Arena.

kroos has six goals this season for bayern, three with the left and three with the right foot. he scored two in that game against ireland from outside the box, one with each foot. pretty impressive.

ooh, bayern just defended a corner like man united and gotze has smacked in an equaliser.

The way you lot defended that night, Kroosaders could probably have notched a couple.

His goals were the two best long range goals I've seen scored at landsdowne road. There really isn't a lot of competition.

Jaysus Barcelona are absolutely butchering bilbao. Messi has scored one, and nearly scored a second, but the third goal barcelona scored really is a thing of beauty.

The third (by Adriano) was one of the best goals they've scored this season.

The two best ever long-range goals scored at Lansdowne are Ashley Grimes against Spain in the Euro 84 qualifiers, and Hans Dorfner for West Germany in the 1990 friendly where Jack Charlton humiliated Liam Brady in public. When Grimes's one flew into the top corner, there was a split-second of absolute silence, because no one could believe it had actually happened.

Jonny Evans's display this evening was like a piece of performance art. Extremely self-indulgent performance art, though then again I'm not sure there's any other kind.

One of the linesmen looked young enough to be the other one's son.

True, only Rooney and Van Persie would arguably get into the 2008 and 2009 sides based on current form, and yet they've contrived to be 10 points clear of third place. The one possible saving grace is that Rooney, Fletcher, Anderson and Jones all have the potential to play the holding role, but none are options worthy of contemplation potentially facing Bayern or Real in the spring. Of course, cosmopolitanism has been indispensable to a European ascent, but have stop-gap foreign appointments proven a glass ceiling for English coaching aspirants?

I'm increasingly convinced that a West Brom fan offended God at some point, and making West Brom continually, and inexplicably, fail against Stoke was His response. It's not a rational belief, but I'm struggling to find one to understand the sequence of results. God, being merciful, throws in one West Brom win per decade as a sop to all the innocent victims also being tortured as a side-effect of this punishment.

And the Brendalution trundles on with a 1-0 win over southampton. They are now only 2 points behind arsenal.


And Stoke are above the pair of them...
[Yes, as are West Brom, Everton, Swansea and West Ham. Don't care that much about those teams, though.]

Messi gets his second. One more to tie Mueller.

In every match that he has scored this year, he's gotten at least two.

I struggle to understand why more teams don't throw the kitchen sink at United. Easily dominated in midfield much of the time, clearly vulnerable at the back.

Is it fear of their strikers or more to do with 20 years of cognitive therapy having conditioned teams to simply bend to Fergie's will?

Perhaps because I want to avoid the endless repeats of David Beasant saving that fucking penalty tomorrow, I'll be paying more attention to the ding-dong Dingle derby. Apparently last time they played in the league, 12 Burnley fans were sentenced to a total of 32 years; most of them will be out for tomorrow's game ...

Oh, come on. The 2008-09 Reading side wasn't that good.

Not true. He only scored one (with a measly two assists) against Ecuador back in June. I know because I was there.

(Also, I stand by what I said on Twitter earlier. His first one today was an OG.)
