PAY UP POMPEY
Goal of the week must go to Portsmouth's Hassan Yebda for this thumping header which gave Pompey their first points of the season. For the first few months of the season they have looked like amatuers, now they actually are; due to backroom financial trouble, the squad haven't been paid this week. They finally win a game but can't pick up their win bonus. Surely even Alanis Morrisette would think it was ironic.
Hull boss, Phil Brown apparently talked a woman down from jumping off Humber bridge during the week, although some reports say it was the other way round. However, after beating Wigan they now take top spot in the alternative premier league standings. Fulham are next on Monday and Jimmy Bullard stands a chance of making his return against his old club after a long term injury. Jimmy looks like a bit of a laugh, have a look at this
ROCK AND ROLL
Remember when Stamford Bridge had the worst pitch in the league? Not anymore, in 2004 along came a ground man's dream, Didier Drogba. The Chelsea field must be the flattest pitch in the country, thanks to the constant rolling around from the Blues' number 11. When he decides to stay on his feet and play football he can be one of the best forwards around as he showed against Liverpool, setting up both of the goals in a 2-0 victory.
Does he ever learn? He gets a few games under his belt, scores a goal or two, then starts talking about playing for England in the World cup. Oh I nearly forgot, then one of his muscles, tendons, or bones gives way. What a shame, England's former striker pulled up short (literally) and might be out for a few weeks. Saha takes the lead now and has the chance to pull away, well unless his groin twangs too.
Is it a bird?, is it a plane? Do you have to ask?
