NIT: 23 November 2008

Sun 23 November 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

The poll results for this week:

Session Player Of The Session
Monday night at The Premier Pitch “Cesc”, our visitor from Spain (the vote was rigged)
Tuesday night at The Cage me
Wednesday night at The Cage The ball
Thursday night at East Coast Andy M

In England, when was the last time all of the big four in England failed to win, or even score a goal, without any of them playing any other of the big four? Their results this weekend:

Aston Villa 0 Manchester United 0
Chelsea 0 Newcastle United 0
Liverpool 0 v Fulham 0
Manchester City 3 Arsenal 0

Further, these were all fixtures that in recent seasons, the big four side has usually won fairly comfortably.

As the dragon boat races over the weekend have featured on the blog, anyone who participated or attended, feel free to update us on the outcome below. I couldn’t make it in the end. It rained a lot over the weekend though.

Likewise, anyone who played in an 11-a-side game this weekend, feel free to give an account below.

    Jiv, what is even more amazing is that the Top 5 teams in the league did not score a goal and not just the “Big 4”

    Well spotted Santi, but top 5 is ephemeral while “Big 4” has been constant for a few seasons now.

    Camara had not scored a Premier League goal since December 2006

    Good thing he scored last night then.

    Here’s another amazing occurrence: “the BBC” and “proper reporting” in the same sentence! In this case, it’s an interview with David Bellion.

    Wolves and Birmingham won in the Championship last night. Wolves are 6 points clear at the top, while Birmingham are 6 points clear of third-placed Reading.

    Looks like Wolves and Birmingham for the two automatic promotion places, although you can’t rule out Steve Coppell’s Reading. The rest of the division are playing either for play-off places or to avoid relegation.

    There were also games in the Champions League last night.

    … interview with David Bellion ….

    It’s easier to score goals in France.
