Good news this week, as Fabrice Muamba appears to be making big steps on his road to recovery. Apparently, he was talking and laughing with team mates. Having spent the past 6 days in a hospital bed, he is now second only to Luis Suarez, on time spent off his feet.
All eyes were on Manchester City this week, and the return of Carlos Tevez. In the end, it turned out pretty well for City, as he made the assist for City’s winner. As it happens, it was Chelsea who acted like a dog, as they rolled over and played dead.
QPR pull of a great comeback this week. Trailing 2-0 to Liverpool, with 77 minutes played, they managed to turn it round into a 3-2 win. The major turning point of the game was most definetley the introduction of Andy Carroll.
Joey Barton wasn’t a very happy chappy, after someone on twitter pointed out his poor statistics this season. Apparently, he has the most misplaced passes in the Premiership. John Terry, at the Chelsea Christmas party, does not count.
Wayne Rooney, this week, broke the wrist of a nine year old boy, Jamie Thomas. During the warm up, at Wolves, the Jamie managed to punch away a wayward Rooney shot. Jamie is now 3rd choice goalkeeper for England.
Lionel Messi became Barcelona’s all time leading goal scorer this week. Despite being only 24, he surpassed the record, previously held by César Rodríguez. I think now’s the time, to admit, that he could probably do it on a cold night in Stoke.
Jacob Mellis has been sacked by Chelsea. It followed an incident, in which he admitted to setting off a smoke grenade at the club’s training complex. John Terry was in tears. Not due to the smoke. Jacob has a tasty girlfriend.
And finally. Real Madrid announced plans, this week, to buid a holiday resort in the UAE. Demand to stay there is already high, with Carlos Tevez booking 5 months for next October.
