It was a rather quite Champions league football week, this week. Nobody refused to play, nobody sulked after being subbed (Well, not too much) and all the English clubs won.
Manchester City recorded their first ever Champions league win be beating Villarreal 2-1, scoring with pretty much the last kick of the game. The goal was scored, quite ironically (as every football journalist on twitter told us) by an Argentine striker who came off the bench. He then allegedly caused a tunnel bust up, but at least he decided he wanted to play.
There was an attack on the senses this week at Stamford Bridge, and for once, it wasn’t caused by the sight of John Terry. Instead, it was the sight of Genk, in their all pink away kit, that was causing the pain. In truth, their kit was equally as bad as their football and they were on the end of a 5-0 thumping.
Arsenal won again. I know, it sounds strange to hear. However, it came at a cost, with their only fit right back getting injured. Manchester United also won. Even with the sending off of Nemanja Vidic, we had too much quality for Otelul Galati.
Probably the major talking point this week, has been the alleged racist remarks made by Luis Suarez towards Patrice Evra in last weeks game. Evra will meet soon with the FA to discuss the matter. Suarez took to his facebook page to defend himself. He told the world that he goes on to the pitch with all the enthusiasm of a child and to make friends. Well, you know the saying ‘Children Bite!’
It seems that we may have all been wrong about Carlos Tevez. It seems that he did not refuse to go on as a sub, but, he only refused to warm up. Still, it would seem that he has played his last game for City and will be offloaded in January, unless he can train himself up as a defensive midfielder.
This weekend’s major event is, of course, the Manchester Derby. It will be a rare treat for the Manchester City players, playing in front of a full house. Sky Sports are planning on hiring extra security, with Gary Neville and Mike Summerbee possibly coming to blows. Whatever the outcome, the 500 city fans returning home wont cause that much congestion.
And finally. Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce was unveiled as the manager to mange the Great Britain football team at next year’s Olympic games. He is thinking about copying the Track and Field’s selection policy and asking Luka Modric, David De Gea, Juan Mata and David Silva to play for us.
