Good Week/Bad WeekBy: Rob | September 13th, 2008
Frank Lampard – A goal disalowed for England, but made up for it by scoring a great goal this evening for Chelsea, and silenced the “they’re all deflections” crowd. Perhaps.
Emmanuel Adebayour - No goals in his first two, and after his summer bitching, there were whispers of discontent. Got a hat-trick today to take Theo Wallcott’s headlines.
Liverpool - First win against Manchester United in recent memory, after Ryan Babel came off the bench to get a winner. Fernando who?
Expensive Debuts – Berbatov took just three minutes to get an assist for Manchester United, while Robinho scored against Chelsea after just 13 minutes.
Jermaine Defoe – Left out of the England side, Defoe won the game for Pompy today, and should have got a hat-trick.
Manchester Clubs – Despite good starts for thier new signings, both Manchester Clubs suffered defeats at Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.
Mike Ashley – Didn’t go to the Newcastle game, probably a good thing as Newcastle Town Centre was bought to a standstill by protesting fans yelling for his head on a platter.
Shirt Design - The ref rejected Hull City’s grey shorts, so that had to borrow Newcastle’s away shorts in order for them not to clash with Newcastle’s home kit.
Shirt Sponsers - For different reasons both West Ham and West Brom played each other with no sponsership today, West Ham’s was a particuarly tacky job, covering up the XL logo after the company went out of business on Thursday.
John Terry - A explosive argument with his goalkeeper after Robinho’s goal was one thing, but his rugby tackle that led to his red card was something else entirely.
