This weekend Barclays Premier League matches has been rich of goal totaling 35, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle taking center stage with six goals each without conceding a single one.Theo Walcott (picture), my Arsenal favorite player, scored a hat trick against Blackpool, and all three goals scored with fashion. Too bad because its now Fabio Capello will take a look at the player. His pace, compure in front of goal were electric. With lot of more work he might start developing into a dangerous all around player.
For those who said Theo Walcott does not have a footballing brain, i am sorry but its hard to change a striker into a winger. Striker do have the last ball on the pitch not the last pass so Arsène Wenger should whether listen to Walcott body language or just continuing in this way and improve walcott all around quality.
Aston villa themselves were showed signs of the absence of their long term manager Martin O’Neill by taking six goals against Newcastle United with a hat trick from Andy Caroll (picture); what a response from Alan Shearer old club after being relegated last year. The other big surprise came from the draw between Manchester United and Fulham, the final score stayed at 2-2 with a goal from mighty midfielder Paul Scholes. Sir Alex Fergusson tried to rescue the three point by sending jokers Ryan Giggs and Nany which almost paid off with an imminent own goal from Fulham. Fulham made sure Nany would remember for the entire weekend his missed penalty in the last quarter by scoring themselves in the last five minutes.
It was a joy for me as Arsenal is second after just two games and hopefully this game will show what united is left with, old legs, bad defense (Evans was woeful), and highly rated players for no apparent reason.Chelsea right are on the top of their game, twelve goals in two games and Didier Drogba (picture) is taking center stage with three goals and three assists. The Drog is back and will hunt us (Arsenal) down. I love him as a player and hopefully Drogba won’t do it to us this year.
Tonight encounter with Liverpool FC and Manchester City will show how much class they are both left with. Liverpool for losing their long time manager Rafael Benitez and Manchester City for buying all the player of the planet at some kilometer prices. Early last week, Manchester City were saved in the last quarter by a goal from summer signing Mario Balotelli from Inter Milan who came on as a substitute. I want City to do good and beat Liverpool but with the organization they’ve got at the back and the return of El nino from injury, it will be hard to decide who will win. So let’s bet on a draw for this one.
Thanks for following me and see you in the next edition 😉 C.D
