A massive congratulations to Chelsea this week, as they beat Lionel Messi 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. The only goal came from Didier Dogba, who was that tired after (and before, really) scoring, that he had to have a lie down, or seven.
The main discussion point this week, has been about diving. While Gary Neville gave a well researched and articulate analysis, there was others who didn’t. Stan Collymore flew straight in with ‘Ban them all for 3 games’ which, ironically, is the same ban Collymore got for stamping on and elbowing Gazza.
The PFA player of the year shortlists were announced this week. The major surprise was the inclusion of Scott Parker over the likes of Clint Dempsey and Jonny Evans. Surprisingly, there was no mention of either Stuart Downing and/or Andy Carroll on the shortlist.
Spurs lost again this week. This time, it was the Semi-Final of the FA Cup, against Chelsea. It adds to the woefull run of form, since Harry Redknapp was linked to the England job. It would seem that Kenny Dalglish was linked with the England job, at the start of the season.
Manchester United were this week named the most valuable football club in the world, by Forbes. They valued the club at £1.4 Billion, which is a 20% rise. I, for one, am surprised at the valuation, considering we could get at least £2 Billion, from Cash My Gold. Quick, someone ring Dale Winton.
Papiss Cisse decided to go for a hair cut this week. Not big news, i hear you say. However, more than 200 Newcastle United fans turned up to watch the hair cut. ‘The Barber Shop’ in Gateshead, now has a higher average attendance, than Manchester City.
