Premiership round-up (23-24/09/06)

Premiership round-up (23-24/09/06)

Pompey play Bolton in Milan Mandaric's final game with the club in their latest Barclays Premiership match on Monday, but how did the others get on...

Saturday 23/09/06
Arsenal 3-0 Sheff Utd
Arsenal finally gained that illusive league win at the Emirates Stadium, but they would have to wait until the second half for the goals. William Gallas (65) scored his first Arsenal goal, before a Phil Jagielka (69) own goal would be rounded of by Thierry Henry (75).

Aston Villa 2-0 Charlton
Martin O'Neill's fantastic start to his reign as Villa boss continued as goals from the young and impressive duo Gabriel Agbonlahor (35) and Luke Moore (62) condemned Charlton to another defeat and maintained Villa`s unbeaten start to the season.

Fulham 0-2 Chelsea
Chelsea were made to work hard but eventual came through with a brace from Frank Lampard (73 pen and 80) to move back to the top of the Premiership, at least until Monday when Pompey hopefully win again!

Liverpool 3-0 Tottenham
Tottenham's difficult start to the season continued in the early SKY Sports game as Liverpool again made at least one change to the side that had turned out previously (the 93rd successive game this had happened!) won again. After Craig Bellamy somehow hit the post Mark Gonzalez (63) followed up, before Dirk Kuyt (73) and John Arne Riise (89) scored the other goals.

Man City 2-0 West Ham
Stuart Pearce under pressure, what pressure! Man City recovered from their Carling Cup defeat to inflict yet more "pressure" on Alan Pardew as Georgios Samaras (50 & 63) scored the goals.

Middlesbrough 0-1 Blackburn
A resurgent Blackburn Rovers side recorded another victory as Shabani Nonda (27) scored his first goal for his new club with the only goal of the match.

Reading 1-1 Man Utd
Reading battled in the early evening SKY Sports Prem Plus game to ensure Man United would only come away from the Madjeski with nothing more than a point. Against his boyhood team Kevin Doyle (48) scored from the spot following Gary Neville's handball, which would be equalised by Cristiano Ronaldo (73).

Wigan 1-1 Watford
Henri Camara (29) scored on his return to the Wigan side but Watford would not be denied and earned a deserved away point thanks to Hamuer Bouazza's (63) free kick.

Sunday 24/09/06
Newcastle 1-1 Everton
In the Sunday afternoon SKY Sports encounter Shola Ameobi (14) gave Newcastle the lead with a goal that was so far offside it was unreal, even Ameobi couldn`t believe it! Tom Cahill (41) would equalise however to preserve Everton's unbeaten start to the season. Both sides would end with then men as Titus Bramble (75) for Newcastle and Tony Hibbert (77) for Everton saw reds for their second bookable offences.

So Villa and Everton maintained their unbeaten starts to the season, can Pompey follow suit? We will all know by 9:30ish on Monday night.

We will follow suit, come full time at Fratton tomorrow we'll be top again and would have equaled Chelsea's Premiership record of six straight clean sheets...

Personally I don't care for the clean sheets....it is a bonus but if we win 2-1 or 3-2 it will please me as much as a 1-0 win, perhaps even more for the excitement of goals.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!
