Great result for stoke. I watched the second half only and I'm glad that Stoke managed not to concede a goal. Great header from Beattie

Tottenham were 2-0 down at one stage and within a space of 2 Mins, Darrent Bent scores twice and they're right back in it. Pompey are going downhill. They've been terrible defensively.

Even without Diarra, Pompey wouldn't be losing to Fulham 3-0 under the Harry's leadership. I wonder if it will be curtains for Tony Adams soon.

Wow, Spurs ended up losing. Their results haven't really improved that much since Harry's arrival. I'm genuinely seeing them as relegation contenders now.

Prem Round-Up (Jan 31st)

Well, well, well...

...it won't be a day of Premier League action that will stick out in everyone's mind now in all fairness. 8 games, 15 goals, 3 nil-nil ties, and a few rather dour games rounding up the days footy events.

All was started at The Britannia, as Stoke City played host to Manchester City's team of high-earners and the richest club in the world, but what good is unlimited finances if you can't turn out the results on the pitch? And that is a question Manchester City fans, staff and players in general will be asking after this game as they failed to take a point from their travels loosing out to a James Beattie header on the 45 minute mark. The games biggest talking point was the dismissal of Rory Delap as he was sent off as he up-ended Sean Wright-Philips, and then appeared to kick the ball forcefully at the Englishman as he lay on the deck. Fair enough, perhaps a good call, maybe a bit harsh, but the big question was "Why did Wright-Philips not get red?", as the speedy winger clearly kicked Delap on the leg after the ball had been struck toward him. A matter for the FA in the coming days one would have to think.

Arsenal and Aston Villa lost ground on the front three as both failed to score in their games, both drawing at home to West Ham (The Emirates) and high flying Wigan (Villa Park). Both sides should have been home and hosed here as they had chance after chance to score and take the points. Arsenal firing wide and weak and Villa unable to turn in goal-mouth scrambles. Its shaping up to be a tussle between the two for that coveted 4th spot as neither look capable of attacking the leading pack.

The Champions loaded the pressure on Liverpool and Chelsea as they won all three points at home against Everton as Cristiano Ronaldo finished a penalty for United in the first half. The second could have easily saw United awarded a second as Carrick seemed to be barged over and then late on, Everton's Lescott was pulled back by Rio Ferdinand in the box. Referee Mark Halsey waved both appeals away. It means United are now 5 points clear at teh top with a game in hand over Liverpool and Chelsea, one of which or both will drop points tomorrow evening. A special note to Edwin Van Der Sar wo passed the British All-Time record for longest clean sheet time of over 19 hours. Congrats to Edwin...

Tottenham Hotspurs woes continue as they fell to an impressive in attack and poor in defence Bolton who led 2-0 at the Reebok through Puygrenier and Davis. Things seemed set for a home win until up popped substitute, Darren Bent who found 2 goals in the space of 2 minutes to level things up and from there, Spurs drove on and one would have expected a goal from the visitors. My oh my were the tables to turn again, with that man Kevin Davis nipping in with a second of the game and Bolton's third to steal a point from Spurs and take all 3 Bolton's way. The win will do under fire boss Gary Megson the world of good as he looks to take Bolton up the table.

Other games today included, Blackburn Rovers earning a point away to Middlesbrough, West Brom coming from behind, twice, against Hull to salvage a crucial point and Fulham knocking more of the stuffing out of Portsmouth and Tony Adams beating the FA Cup holders, 3-1 at the Cottage.



Big games tomorrow between Newcastle and Sunderland, and Liverpool and Chelsea.

Arsenal knocked on the door, but without looking really dangerous to be honest. If were to play them with a fit squad now, we would put them to the sword.

Man City's problems continue to delight me and Wigan continue to impress. Even without Palacios. I'm happy for them Valencia has agreed to stay inspite of Real Madrid wanting to sign him on an 18 month loan.

Unlike yesterday's action, today had a bit more bite and a little bit more interest too. We had a Tyne-Wear Derby to start us off at lunchtime and then the title challengers game between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield.


Newcastle played host to visitors, Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear Derby and were looking for a win to boost their form under Joe Kinnear. After a lively opening, with Sunderland doing all the pushing, Harper was unable to deny Cisse a goal after he failed to prevent the Sunderland forwards second strike giving Sunderland the lead. Sunderland deservedly led at half time, but in the second Newcastle came forward a lot more and began to create chances with Damien Duff and Jonas Gutierrez really taking hold fo the game driving at the Sunderland defence. But midway through the half, everybody, including some of the Newcastle players were stunned when Howard Webb awarded a penalty to the home side after he had judged Malbranque's tackle on Taylor had been worthy of a foul. It looked extremely harsh and Newcastle didn't deserve the opportunity to score from the spot on 69 minutes. Shola Ameobi stepped p and smashed the ball home to make things interesting for the last 20 or so minutes. Both sides tussled for a goal, with the games stretched, when substitute, Michael Chopra managed to nip the ball off the Newcastle defence after some shocking defender. The striker was in on goal, and when you would think all he had to do was wrap his right peg around the ball and curl it into the far corner beyond Harper, he tried to play in Kenwyne Jones with an audacious chipped ball with the outside of his foot, yet the skills were absent and he over ht the ball and Jones had to turn away from goal in order to keep it in play. It was a golden opportunity to nab a possible 3 points! Thats how it ended, and Sunderland, despite feeling they could have taken all the points from Geordie land, will be pleased with the performance.

At 16:00, Liverpool and Chelsea lined up in the cold of Anfield, and even the light dusting of snow too! It was a game where there simply had to be a winner, otherwise, Manchester United would have been 4 clear of the two with a game in hand. A very tame and timid first half played out, with Liverpool having the two best chances with long range drives from Alonso and Mascherano which both called Petr Cech into action to keep the scores level. Mike Riely had a game to forget really, issuing needless cards at various points and making some very suspect decisions. The second half began and Liverpool came to life as Chelsea seemed to almost tire. Alex was like a rock at the back blocking numerous shots and passes from Liverpool. However, all was to change drastically, as referee Riely brandished a red card to Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, for "serious foul play" on Xabi Alonso. Lampard who appeared to actually win the ball was stunned as Alonso lay on the floor. It seemed a very, very harsh sending off and one you would expect to see overturned at the FA. Questions also arose, when Steven Gerrard lunged at a Chelsea player yet didn't receive a card at all. 89 minutes passed and it was all looking like Man United's evening when up popped Fernando "El Nino" to head the ball past Cech, who wasn't in the best position, after a decent Liverpool move. Chelsea appeared to give up then and Liverpool capitalized on this and Chelsea's woeful defending as Ashley Cole failed to deal with the ball and as the ball broke loose, Torres again, had an open net in front of him to roll the ball into and send Chelsea hearts lower, and lower. A final talking point was an outrageous "kick" from Bosingwa on Benayoun in the corner as he lifted his leg and shoved his studs into the back of the Liverpool winger. You have to wonder, if Lampard's "foul" deserved a red, what on earth let Bosingwa stay on the pitch. Wit the linesman less then a metre from it too, you just have to sit back in amazement at the poor officiating. I think Bosingwa can be expecting a suspension in the coming days as the FA must surely take action upon it. The game ended 2-0 to the home side and arguably Chelsea's title challenge now.


Many eyes will be on Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford on March 14th.
