So Chelsea opened their season with a impressive season, 2-1. Can anyone tell me why Owen got to retake that penalty, was it because Cuddicini moved before the spot kick was taken?
In the other games, Newcastle I thought was very unlucky not to win against Leeds, they had numerous chances to score, though I admitt Leeds took their chances and it payed off, 2-2. Man City strolled to a comfortable win with Anelka playing really well, while former great Fowler, had another game that he rather forget, 3-0
On Saturday, Man Utd opened their accounts with an easy win against Bolton, 4-0. Everyone is raving about how good this Ronaldo kid is, but I am still am not convinced, Bolton 's defence was pathetic for the last 20 mins. Interestingly enough, it took till the 70th minute for Man Utd to score their 2nd and Van Nistelrooy missed another spot kick...
My team Arsenal started out really nevy and hate to say it, Everton had most of the chances. Then Campbell was sent off (deservedly too I might add) and one Keown cam on place of the useless Wiltord, we returned to our old sleves again. Henry was a lone warrior up front and he won us a penalty, which he duly converted. We then proceeded to dominate the game untill the last 10 mins, when Radzinksi scored. However, we manged to hold tight and grind out a hard fought win, 2-1
Other notable results was Southampton fight back against Leiceister, 2-2 Phillips and Beattie look the goods. Fulham beat Middlesborough 3-2, Portsmouth made their debut in style beating a sorry Aston Villa who had Barry sent off for abusing the ref 2-1. Birmingham beat Tottenham 1-0 (yeah!), and Wolverhampton had a rude awakening to premier league reality, getting smashed by Blackburn 5-1.
Here's my team of the week,
GK. Maik Taylor (Birmingham)
. Sun Ji Hi (Man City)
. Amorouso (Blackburn)
. Ferdinand (Man Utd)
. Johnson (Chelsea)
. Emerton (Blackburn)
. Veron (Chelsea)
. Scholes (Man Utd)
. Giggs (Man Utd)
. Shearer (Newcastle)
. Anelka (Man City)
Star of the week was Ryan Giggs. Awesome free kick to open the season (who needs Beckham!), and scored another one and created lots of chances of Man Utd.
I look forward to everyone's opinions and comments.
