EPL review – match day 3 06/07 season

August 29, 2006

In a weekend where Roy Keane shocked everyone with the start of his managerial career, and Owen Hargreaves finally conceding that he wont be coming to Man United during this transfer window, the Premiership saw a few contenders for goal of the season, and saw Arsenal stumble yet again.

Tottenham pre-season spending and transfer activity suggest that their intentions are high. However, their stuttering start to the season suggest a team still yet to find the right balance within the team. Losing 2-0 at home to 10 men Everton would definitely be seen as 3 points lost by Martin, they do need to do much better than that. Andy Johnson shows his class yet again, and deserves his recent call up to the England squad.

The two teams to watch this season is Aston Villa and Portsmouth. Both of these teams have been rejuvenated with new owners, and most importantly brilliant managers. A 4-0 thrashing of Boro flattered even the most loyal of supporters. Kanu inspired again with 2 goals, giving him a total of 4 goals. That’s not bad for someone who netted only 5 goals for the entire of the last season. Bryan Robson must be reeling from this! Harry Redknapp’s golden touch is evident, from the second worst defensive record last season, to the current best in the premiership…not a single goal conceded so far!

The pre-season troubles within Aston Villa was definitely a blessing in disguise… O’leary moving out and O’neill coming in changed the club for the better. A 2-0 win againsts Newcaslte, and 3rd in the table after 3 games, Villa fans couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season. Poor Glen Roeder must feel that the whole world is consipiring against his club, with Michael Owen already out with a serious knee injury, seeing his new signing Obefami Martins being stretchered out must have put his blood pressure up. Fortunately for Newcaslte, it is now confirmed that his injury wasn’t as bad as first thought.

Watford showed that they are no pushovers, and Man Utd had to battle hard for a win at Vicarage Road. Vintage Giggs yet again, 600 matches for Man U and counting…let’s hope it goes on and on. With no Rooney and Scholes, their attack may be slightly blunted, but 10 goals in 3 games still is the best in the premiership.

A freakish cross/shot by West Ham’s Bobby Zamora caused a slight stir within the Liverpool camp, before Daniel Agger’s wonder strike levelled for the home team right before the break. Crouch opened his account with the winner at Anfield, and put the gloss on the Kop’s 100th birthday celebration.

Wenger maintains that he’s not worried with the Gunner’s start of the season, but 1 point from 2 games means that they have to start performing real soon. This time losing at the hands of Joey Barton and Manchester City, Wenger can only rue the missed chances from his misfiring strike force.

Charlton, Fulham and Wigan recorded their first ponts of the season, at the expence of Bolton, Sheffield Utd, and Reading. The champions Chelsea put their title defense back on track with a hard fought 2-0 win at Ewood Park. Blackburn must not feel so down though, because it could have been a different story if not for the dubious penalty decission for the tackle on Jon Terry, and the marvelous Petr Chec in Chelsea’s goal.

Full Results

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham, Watford 1-2 Man Utd, Charlton 2-0 Bolton, Wigan 1-0 Reading, Fulham 1-0 Sheffield Utd, Man City 1-0 Arsenal, Tottenham 0-2 Everton, Aston Villa 2-0 Newcastle, Blackburn 0-2 Chelsea, Middlesborough 0-4 Porstmouth.

Outstanding Player of the week:

Scott Carson for keeping a brilliant clean sheet at The Valley.

Disappointing Player of the week:

Missfiring Thierry Henry. He should now learn to blame himself rather than everyone else for Arsenal’s loss

Manager of the week:

David Moyes for the inspiring 2-0 win at Spurs with a player down for the majority of the game.

My Team of the Week:

Goal Keeper: Scott Carson (Charl) Defenders: M Silvestre (MU) J Terry (Chel), D Agger (Liver), R Dunne (Man City) Midfielders: J Bullard (Fulham), L Osman (Ever), R Giggs (MU) Strikers: A Johnson (Ever) D Bent (Charl) N Kanu (Por)
