EPL week 3 Football (Soccer)
Man City Awsome
All the teams have played 3 games and the one that is surging to the top is Man City. What a start 3 games 9 goals 0 conceded
Season 2014-15 saw the opening 3 matches yield 6 points scoring 5 but conceding 2 The defence looks solid Kompany and Mangala looking as a formidable centre back pairing seen since Vidic Ferdinand combination.
They will not be judged on wins against WBA & Everton on which they had at times in excess of 80% possession, It will come in the form of the Champions League. When they face the likes of Bayern & Barcelona, who have humbled them on occasions. They like Arsenal in Past are in Cricket terms Flat track bullies. Let’s see what happens when they have to deal with Neymar, Suarez, Messi, Robben Lewandowski Muller and Co
Man Utd once again flattered to deceive against a rejuvenated Newcastle. Louis Van Gaal ridiculous comment “that we were fantastic and did not reward ourselves” was dismissed by former united Legend Scholes as like “watching paint dry”
Mr Van Gaal I know you are multi lingual but the word Fantastic is an adjective meaning extremely good. With no goals from 8 shots on target that for me is not extremely good.
Arsenals 11/2 favourites for the championship according to bookies, appear to be having some issues starting, following there inept home display against West Ham seemed toothless against Liverpool who had the best chances to score. Only a rejuvenated Petr Cech was the difference after denying Benteke a certain goal and a marvellous finger tipped save from Coutinho, helped Arsenal survive a certain double home defeat.
With 34 shots 13 of which were on target provided a good 0-0 game unlike 2014-15 season where Arsenal comprehensively beat Liverpool 4-1 this was an altogether closer game but just as enjoyable
Arsene Wenger lamented "We have started very average I must concede," Wenger said. "Sharpness is missing a little bit in some players.
"Our game is still not fluent enough in the final third."
Heard that before. Unless they go out and sign Benzeme or as reported by Sami Mokbel http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ they are lining up a bid for Edison Cavani. Being realistic they have more chance of calling back Yaya Sanago from his loan spell at Ajax. They again will be happy to finish in the top four.
Pedro Chelsea’s new signing was a pleasure to watch. Yes he can’t get in the Barcelona team, I do not think any EPL player is good enough to walk into it. OK but as the second string he showed just what a talent Mourinho has purchased. Or will Pedro go the way of the other Chelsea wingers in recent past Juan Cuadrado, shipped out to Juventus @juventusfc Mohamed Salah, Victor Moses I suspect it is at the other end they have problems. With JT turning slower than milk these days, a battered Cahill and cumbersome looking Ivanovich they will no doubt be asking Mr Abramovich for additional funds to get John Stones.
Pre match Chelsea interview BPL reporter asked WBA Tony Pulis with regards the ongoing Transfer of there star man Saido Berahino. A vexed Pulis refused to answer questions.
Albion have a first team squad of 26 which I high percentage would have been bought in from other clubs. Did there managers go into a sulk when players were linked with the Baggies. There latest acquisition Jose Rondon from Zenit St Petersburg did AVB bemoan his temperament because of the ongoing situation I suspect he did.
That’s football we Love the characters and the plots so only 7 more days to Transfer deadline day who will go where ?
