PREMIER LEAGUE:MAN CITY VS CHELSEA

The panenka penalty is like the drop shot in tennis, it should just not be executed wherever one feels like it. Kun Aguero’s attempt at it is akin to playing disco music at a funeral. City 1-0 up with half time approaching in seconds,Sterling winning the penalty off Gilmour and if converted that was theContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:MAN CITY VS CHELSEA”

PREMIER LEAGUE:LEICESTER CITY VS NEWCASTLE

Oh Oh. De ja Vu again for Leicester. Last season’s late implosion to finish fifth seems to be repeating itself again. Newcastle put the Foxes to the sword on Friday night with arguably their most clinical performance of the season. Lethargic and incompetent defending at fault for the loss. Just watch the third goal byContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:LEICESTER CITY VS NEWCASTLE”

PREMIER LEAGUE: SOUTHAMPTON VS LEICESTER CITY

How do you psyche up a team which is coming up against the team that fucked up your team 9-0 in the same stadium last season? You tell them that this is their chance to bury the ghost of 25 October 2019 once and for all.Ralph we know is no quitter and did just that.Continue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: SOUTHAMPTON VS LEICESTER CITY”

PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS SOUTHAMPTON

Doctor Jackal and Mr Hyde. That aptly describes the Saints either side of half time. Spurs deserved winners after a much improved second half but I wanna talk about Southampton and their form on the other side of the oranges break. Ok it seems unfair to label the south coast team the ultimate second halfContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS SOUTHAMPTON”

PREMIER LEAGUE:LEEDS UNITED VS LIVERPOOL

Sick of hearing about the European Super League? Well my aim is to take your mind off the politics of the game and focus on what the game really is about. What happens on the pitch. One of the clubs involved in the breakaway league Liverpool were in action Monday night against Leeds United inContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:LEEDS UNITED VS LIVERPOOL”

PREMIER LEAGUE:EVERTON VS TOTTENHAM

Jose Mourinho is one bloke who really needed the win. His Spurs team lost more ground on the top 4 with two dropped points. Same could be said about Carlo Ancelloti’s team as well. Everton missed the attacking threat of Calvert-Lewin. Not that Richarlison was bad but the Brazilian is not as clinical as theContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:EVERTON VS TOTTENHAM”

PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED

Pogba influential in North London. A day to forget for the referee and Jose Mourinho. Spurs fortunate to be up 1-0 at the break through Son whose adjusted foul by Scot McTominay had the ref chop off Cavani’s would be opener. Spurs’ negative tactics invited United to come at the deep Tottenham defensive line. UnitedContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

PREMIER LEAGUE:LEEDS TAKE ALL THREE POINTS AT THE ETIHAD

Questionable team selection led to the surprise victory for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United.Pep leaving out the likes of Foden,De Bryune and Gundogan in an apparent prioritisation of the mid week champions league game in Dortmund raised a few eye browse. Leeds United tactics were clear and should serve as a template on how to playContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:LEEDS TAKE ALL THREE POINTS AT THE ETIHAD”

PREMIER LEAGUE:WOLVES VS WEST HAM

I got a confession to make. I watched this match today and totally ignored it LIVE for reasons that I thought it was going to be full and boring. I was persuaded to watch it delayed in it’s entirety after a pal of mine pointed out that the first two goals are going to interestContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:WOLVES VS WEST HAM”

PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL

Arsenal can have no complaints whatsoever with the result. Liverpool played them off their own patch. Arsenal could not string a combination of passes to save their lives. The key for the Reds was winning back the ball as quickly as possible once they lose it. Aubameyang and Lacazette were lonely figured up top. TheContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL”
