Three Things You Learned This Weekend? (Part 16)

Posted by

Bit of a belated edition today as we just flew back from Japan after covering the FIFA World Club Cup. But better late than never…

Everyone saw the Premiership matches they cared about, and it’s a rather lengthy process trudging through the match reports of every club that matters little to you – especially if you’re still carrying the stench of defeat.

So instead, after every round of matches here’s your chance for everyone to share the three things they learned from the weekend’s Premiership action. A sort of cheatsheet, only with more profanity. To see what readers learned last week, click here.

This weekend, it could be that Alan Curbishley has made a good start in replacing Martin O’Neill as World’s Greatest Living Manager, that there seem to be a lot of spectacular goals lately, that it’s amusing to hear Jose Mourinho complain about another player diving, that Manchester United may be top but Chelsea are the ones playing like champions, or that Emmanuel Adebayor is starting to look more like the next Thierry Henry than the next Kanu.

Here are a list of the weekend’s results as a refresher:

Fulham 2-1 Middlesbrough
Everton 2-3 Chelsea
Man City 1-2 Tottenham
West Ham 1-0 Man Utd
Arsenal 2-2 Portsmouth
Aston Villa 0-1 Bolton
Charlton 0-3 Liverpool
Newcastle 2-1 Watford
Reading 1-2 Blackburn
Wigan 0-1 Sheff Utd
