A Great Week-End of Sport & An Unsung Hero

Well it is Monday and after a great weekend of sport we have a  full programme of Premier League football tomorrow night.

Jose Mourinho has his first trophy for two years and says he is feeling like a  kid.

Well congratulations to our little Portugese friend but let us be frank he has been acting like a kid for the last few weeks.

Suggesting a conspiracy theory agin his team and impressing us all with his use of numbers,                minute 33 etc etc.

But his Chelsea side were too strong for Tottenham and Zouma’s switch to midfield to replace the injured Matic was an inspired choice if problematic first.

Good wins for Newcastle, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion who continued to flourish under the stewardship of Tony Pullis.

Manchester Utd won again and after the replacement of Di Maria with Januzaj the big talking point was with referee Roger East who was the only person to confuse Wes Brown, who he sent off,  with John O’Shea.

Yesterday NMManchester City persisted with a  4.4.2 formation after their defeat at the hands of Barcelona and were found out again by Liverpool’s quicksilver attacking duo of Sterling and Phiiippe Coutinho.

Countinho followed his great goal against Southampton, voted Goal of the Month on last night’s MOTD 2, with a great strike and a  goal worthy of winning any game.

Arsenal followed a disappointed week in the Champions League with a 2.0 victory at home to Everton.

So we begin again tomorrow night with the first of the Villa v Albion local encounters, may the best team win.

To finish with;

Is it only in England where a footballer of the stkill, tenacity and workrate of Wayne Mark Rooney would be constantly pilloried as if he had offended the Nation.

Rooney has now has scored two goals on a number of occasions and has only been beaten in the number of braces he has grabbed by Shearer and Henry.

He has also scored 168 goals in 330 games for United.

Not great you might say but compare his record with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry who scored 148 in 303 and 174 in 254 for Newcastle and Arsenal respectively.

Strange Nation Britain at times.
