Weekend Observations: October 4th and 5th
Liverpool have mastered the art of the comeback. After going down 2-0 to City yesterday, Liverpool proceeded to win 2-3 with goals from Torres on 55’ and 72’ and Kuyt on 90’. Of course it helped that Pablo Zabaleta got a red card on 67’ to leave City playing with 10 men for the last 23 minutes.
Geovanni was the best buy of the summer.
Frank Lampard is one of the most consistent players in the Premier League. He’s currently #2 to Gabriel Agbonlahor in the Actim Index.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a FREAK!
If you’re feeling like an unappreciated striker, sign for Portsmouth. Jermain Defoe lead the league in goals, and Peter Crouch scored a lovely bicycle kick in the penalty box this weekend to bring his Premier League total to 100 goals.
Barcelona come out of the tunnel scoring. This weekend they put 3 in the back of the net in the first 10 minutes. And proceeded to beat Atletico Madrid 6-1. And it wasn’t just The Messi Show. Marquez (4’), Eto'o (6’, 18’), Messi (9”), Gudjohnsen (28’), and Henry (73’) all scored for Barça. The lone pointless goal for Atletico was scored by Maxi Rodríguez.
