Three Things You Learned This Weekend? (Part 1)

Posted by

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 the chance for everyone to share the three things they learned from the weekend’s Premiership football. A sort of cheatsheet, only with more profanity. To see what folks learned last time, click here.

This week it could be that the only surprising thing about Roy Keane’s Sunderland ground out a win against an inconsistent Spurs was that anyone was surprised at all, that a good question to ask is where the hell was this attacking, pass-and-move football when Sven was in charge of England, that Arsenal and Liverpool showed the bottle that champions are made of even if their finishing still isn’t, or that Newcastle and Bolton have just learned what Sam Allardyce means/meant to them.

But what the hell do we know, let us know what you learned in the comments.

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

Arsenal 2-1 Fulham
Chelsea 3-2 Birmingham
Manchester United 0-0 Birmingham
Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool
Bolton 1-3 Newcastle
Derby 2-2 Portsmouth
Everton 2-1 Wigan
Middlesbrough 1-2 Blackburn
Sunderland 1-0 Tottenham
West Ham 0-2 Manchester City
