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.

    Was fearing for City, because though they are difficult to break down, they are not too creative upfront (has been a problem ever since Anelka first, and more importantly SWP left), but thankfully Arsenal wanted to play beautiful football than score goals. City might go close to relegation this year looking at their performance so far, but as long as they get the better of Man U, should be fine.

    Much better start to the season than last year. Who would have expected Arsenal to be in the 17th place, Spurs to have lost two matches out of three, Chelsea to have lost a match and Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Everton in the second position. Good stuff.

    I think City will survive the drop. Portsmouth are surprising everybody with their performances especially Kanu! West Brom fans must be wondering if it was the same player they had 2 years back. Interesting to see how Anelka gets on at Bolton. And yep, great start to the season!
