Andre Villas Boas was sacked by Chelsea on Sunday. After a 1-0 loss against West Brom, he became the 7th manager sacked by Chelsea in 9 years. Being an ex-scout, you would have thought he would have known the ‘Chelsea way’ before he signed for them.
Carlos Tevez made a return to Football this week. He started, and scored, in Manchester City ‘s reserves, 3-1 win against Bolton reserves. However, all is not well. On the team bus, on the way home, he refused to play Ludo.
Arsenal almost completed an amazing come back this week. Their 3-0 against AC Milan was just short of what they needed. Piers Morgan was livid. His sofa couldn’t take the strain, of him being on the edge of his seat all night. Is there a DFS in America?
Both Manchester City and Manchester United lost in the Europa League this week. Manchester United were undone by a superb team performance, Manchester City were undone by a back heel.
Vincent Kompany was glad that he remembered his E111 card, as he limped off with a calf injury.
Mario Balotelli was fined, a weeks wages, by Manchester City this week. It followed a late night out in a Liverpool strip club. If he wanted to be in a room full of over priced fanny, he should have just gone in to training the next day.
Glen Johnson re opened the Suarez/Evra incident, by blaming Patrice Evra for ‘handshake-gate’ Despite Suarez admitting he did wrong, Johnson claims that Evra stayed up all night, to think up a way to make Suarez look bad. I guess 20,000 Fulham fans and Otman Bakkal did the same.
It looks as though Glasgow Rangers are in trouble. After being put in to administration last month, they now need to cut £1,000,000 a month from their wage bill. Their star players have agreed to a 75% wage cut and a couple have agreed to leave the club without compensation.
And finally, Lionel Messi has found himself in hot water with Women all over the World this week. Despite suffering with a headache, he managed to score 5 goals in a Champions League match. From now on ‘Not tonight, I’ve got a headache’ will be met with ‘Well, if Messi can score 5 with a headache…..’
