    A week into this years event.
    for thos who don't know what it is, 20 of the best english football teams play each other twice, with 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. the most points wins the trophy, if theres a tie, goal difference counts.
    In the history of it only 4 teams have ever won it. Blackburn Rovers 1. chelsea 2, arsenal 3 and Manchester united 9 times. depending on how well you do in the year you get into certain europeian events blahddi blah blah.

    on to the talking...

    spurs at bottom? suprise?
    what about the other results..

    It is pretty surprising that Spurs have lost 2...

    Manchester United on 2 points, they don't play too well without Rooney, although Tevez played very well in their match against Portsmouth. Now Ronaldo's suspended for another 3 matches, not going too well for United at the moment. Though I do think that Nani is amazing, and with Hargreaves probably playing in their next match, I think they'll do okay.

    Rooney does not own, he's a good player but not as good as everyone makes out. I'm glad Cristiano Ronaldo got banned because he's a f*ckin pr*ck and a diving little cheat...sure he might look good sometimes, but he doesn't do anything particularly special that's like "wow". Once a defender is used to him he's sh*t. Don't you just love the way nothing happens to Ferguson after his comments about the referee the other day, that just proves his d*ck is firmly up the FA's arses. Nothing can really be said about Tottenham being at the bottom of the table, just look at the top - Everton :shocked: that proves that wherever teams are now has no resemblence to their actual potential, so with two games in not much can be made of it. What I really think though is that this year promises to be one of the best and closest Premierships ever. There are a lot of good teams now, more of them challenging for that second bracket in the League, e.g. Spurs, Newcastle, Villa, Everton (I suppose), Pompey, Man City, Reading, Bolton, I even think Birmingham can do well this season. I do believe it will be a bad season at the Riverside though, The Boro just don't look as good as they used to be, not that they were a real force, but they had something about them that enabled them to give a good game to top teams, they seem to have lost it though.

    As for tomorrows games, I am extremely looking forward to them! Two home wins will do nicely - Man City beating Utd, and Liverpool beating Chelsea. I should get some sleep so I can wake up for 1 to start watching them!

    He got banned for 3 games for head-butting a player, d*ckhead. Every time your girlfriend mentions him, hit her :) that's what I do.

    Well it was hardly a head-butt, but that will be because he's a f*cking faggort. He deserved to get sent off though. It was at the weekend, he head-butted Richard Hughes of Portsmouth, I don't know why, probably because he likes men. I was looking for a video of it but I can't find one.

    ok no need to be an idiot. he didn't deserve to get sent off, seeing as how there was no contact or minimul at all, the reason he did it is because of Hughes holding onto him before the corner, which the reff could clearly see and did nothing about, it was a must win game for united, and we didn't win in the end, his heart was in the right place, just a shame the sport has gone to a place where an intention of bodily contact is practically a sending off.

    are you supprised everton is at the top? they are a very strong team, and were in the runnings for the title in the first half last year as well.

    Bolton are bottom and playing terribly. Our attack and midfield are great, but our defense is diabolical. I miss Ben Haim.. and our set pieces, though some saw them as boring, at least they got us goals. I doubt the likes of Anelka will be around next season at this rate. And I hope Sammy Lee gets the sack ASAP.

    How am I being an idiot please? He did deserve to get sent off, you can't aim a head-butt at someone and not expect to be punished, regardless of how much or little contact there was. I would like you to show me a game where there is not one offence of a defender holding an attacker before a corner, AND where the referee takes action. Go on, just one. It happens week in week out, it happens in every level of football, from Sunday league to the World Cup final. I'm not saying its right, but it happens and nothing is done about it, so now you just have to get on with it. How can you possibly say that, a player who aims a head-butt at another professional, "his heart was in the right place"? I'd like to see what he'd do if his heart was in the wrong place. "...an intention of bodily contact is practically a sending off." Erm, well yeah, if Cristiano Ronaldo, for example, ran up full speed to Hughes, tensed his right aim with all his might, and attempted a enormous clothesline that would take Hughes' head off, however, Hughes ducked at the last second, should Cristiano Ronaldo be sent off? Well according to you he shouldn't, he intended bodily contact didn't he, but he didn't connect, therefore its perfectly fine. Erm. No.

    Everton are not a "very strong team". In all fairness they're a good side who manage to grind out results. Without Arteta they'd be awful.

    I am not even going to begin to comment on the Liverpool game, other than congratulations Nando, what a goal and there'll be plenty more where that came from. In fact yes I am, but I will control myself because I'll probably get banned or something for foul and abusive language. That penalty decision was one of the worst decisions I have EVER seen in the history of me watching the game. Rob styles had a dire game, dire - he didn't just give an absolutely shocking decision, he booked Essien twice and didn't send him off, but claimed the second yellow card was aimed at Terry, even though he had already shown Terry his yellow card 30 seconds earlier. He simply had a poor game of refereeing, including some lack of basic decisions, such as the Chelsea wall moving closer to the ball before the free kick was struck. This awful, awful display of refereeing was also on the back of another poor display when Man Utd played Reading on the opening day, when he sent Kitson off. Di-a-BOLICAL.

    i don't agree with what he did, and nore does anyone, it was right to send him off, you got to remember that all players do stupid things, and get sent off, players with pressure on there shoulders tend to make mistakes more, he is only young and there is no need to talk about him like he is stephen hunt.

    Without arteta they would still be a good team, Arteta is a good player, but they have others who are underated and not often in the limelight. They work well as a team, and that is what is important, day in day out in the premiship the teams that work well together get the solid results, unlike some teams with the bigger names, clubs such as united, chelsea, aresenal and liverpool are the big guns fighting it out for the title, the little guns solid performance is what counts for them, in there 'league' they are very good and at the top of there game.

    What do you mean "talk about him like he is stephen hunt"?
    Not all players do stupid things, he has a problem of not liking it when he isn't getting what he wants, which is very unprofessional and I don't care how old he is, it's not like he's playing on the school yard. Yeah I agree players with pressure on their shoulders tend to make mistakes more, but that wasn't a mistake, that was just an act of complete violence, he knew exactly what he was doing and thought he'd get away with it. Cristiano Ronaldo is an arrogant cheat and that's all there is to it.

    Without Arteta they'd be a very average team. I fail to see where enough creativity would come from if it wasn't for him. Most teams, particularly this season, are working well as a team, very much including the 'big four' (although Man Utd don't seem to be doing that much this season). So it will be interesting to see the positions of the middle tier of the Premiership come May. Everton have done well in previous seasons because they manage to grind out 1-0 wins, more so than other teams around their position.
