Did anyone see that elbow that Thatcher (Man City) put on Perdro Mendes (Spurs) the other day. Damn that was sick. Guess Man City suspended him for it but the league has had no reaction to it yet. Can't believe he only got a yellow for it in the first place.
what's nuts is if you watch it closely Mendes is KOd before he hit the ground

So what have we learned thus far in the season:Manchester United doesn't seem to be missing Ruud (or Scholes and Rooney, for the time being).Chelsea isn't unbeatable, but after the Blackburn game is rounding into form.Liverpool is looking much like they have in other years: inconsistent but able to do just enough when the moment calls for it. Squeaked by Maccabi Haifa. Looked pretty good against West Ham. Arsenal seem to have some issues. At least they made it into the group stage of Champs League.Spurs are in a real mess. Losing to ten-man Everton (my choice to have a real bounce-back season). Villa are also looking very solid. The appointment of Martin O'Neill and the stability of new ownership seem to have helped the team on the pitch. Newcastle on the other hand looks to be in a bit of a mess again. Sign a new striker (Obafemi Martins) and he goes out and gets hurt in his first match. I'm interested to see how 'boro does tomorrow. See if they look like the side that beat Chelsea or the side that lost to Reading.

You're easily the most defensive person I've ever posted with.I said "w/o Rooney for the next 3 weeks: Good luck."Didn't say they would struggle. In fact, my OP on this thread has Man U finishing top 3. Eaaaasssy..

Arsenal needs to learn how to finish. They should have scored at least 4 or 5 goals against City and failed to even get a shot off on their great chances. They definately have the ability to be a great team but they are missing a key ingredient. Bummer about Newcastle. I was hoping hard for a win this week.Yay! Fulham gets their first win. I will be happy with a top half of the table finish this year so they are currently doing that. Too bad there are like 30+ games left. :club:

lol, you over react to a lot of stuff don't you. If I'm easily the most defensive person that you've ever posted with, then you haven't either seen most of my posts, or don't go to that many other internet sites. Lest we also not forget you jumping all over my jock over saying what region a poster's IP came from, so pot, kettle, blackI make a post gloating about my team doing well and you come in saying that they haven't won the cup yet, all I was doing was pointing out that I was happy that they still kicked *** w/o scholes or Rooney. Again, reading and contextual comprehension may help before posting

Yeah, Portsmouth all of a sudden pwns and if they could go .500 against the big teams this year, may have a shot at the UEFA. Apparently, they have some money over there too and could keep it up. How did they originally get into suckdom and have to climb out of that?

they've almost always sucked. Until like 2 or 3 years ago, they hadn't been in the top flight in something like 20 years and were very close to relegation a few times down to the not as old division 2. Milan Mandaric came in and bought them in the late 90s and they became a decent division 1(now championship) side. 'arry Redknapp got them promoted and they've been in the top flight the past couple of year. Now a new russian owner came in and bought out Mandaric's shares, and voila, lots o money to spend= doing better in teh standings. Their stadium will still hurt them as it only holds slightly over 20K and they are in a crap town, so few top players will ever want to go there

Yeah, they have some former stars like Kanu starting now...wonder if a new stadium happens, more players would be willing to come in. European soccer is pretty luring..

even if they made a new stadium, it would be hard to convince a lot of players to spend their time in portsmouth. most top clubs exist in cities that at least have something going for them(well, maybe except for turin, gelsenkirchen, and dortmund), portsmouth is a POS town in each and everyway. Pompey will never be more then a team that will sometimes make a run for a european place and bounce between the top two tiers of football
