English Premier League: Weekend Review
Posted by Sports Snob on August 28, 2006
Result of the Weekend:
Manchester City 1-0 Arsenal
Arsene Wenger must be hoping that his side can put together a string of good performances after the 2-week break. Perfect example of the unpredictability of sport. City were coming in off a rotten run, nothing has been going right for them and Thatcher’s horrific elbow on Pedro Mendes did not help either. City rode their luck through the match and somehow got home with a 1-0 victory. Special menion for Nicky Weaver. Only god knows how this man is playing football after all the operations. In fact he is making first team appearences after close to three years.
Goal of the Weekend:
Daniel Agger’s absolute cracker against West Ham United.Supposedly the best defender to come out of Denmark since the glory of Euro 92.
Watch the goal here.
Early days but all the signs are pointing towards a very interesting season. The presence of Martin O Neill and a rejuvenated Aston Villa could make the season more interesting. With Randy Lerner ‘s (What a name!) imminent take over of Villa, it will be interesting to see the players he signs before the transfer window closes.
