Premiership round-up (21-22/10/06)

Premiership round-up (21-22/10/06)

At least Pompey finally scored against Chelsea as we lost 2-1 in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others...

Saturday 21/10/06
Aston Villa 1-1 Fulham
Former Pompey target Gareth Barry (25) opened the scoring with a superb penalty (if only we could have signed him!) before Moritz Volz (45) levelled on the stroke of half time in the evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game. Aston Villa's point sees them retain the only unbeaten Premiership record.

Charlton 0-0 Watford
Two of the bottom three sides played out a 0-0 draw that will be of little to help either. Watford will arguably be happier with an away point.

Everton 2-0 Sheff Utd
Goals from Mikael Arteta (13) and a James Beattie (33) penalty saw Everton bounce back from their first defeat last weekend.

Wigan 4-0 Man City
The lunchtime LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game saw Wigan earn their biggest ever Premiership win. Emile Heskey (3), an own goal from Richard Dunne (5), Henri Camara (65) and Luis Antonio Valencia (67) scored.

Sunday 22/10/06
Blackburn 0-1 Bolton
Pompey can relate to Blackburn here as we too dominated a match with Bolton yet still lost! Ivan Campo (62) scored the winner. Incredibly Blackburn, through Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts missed two penalties. Bolton's Kevin Nolan (90) was sent off in injury time.

Man Utd 2-0 Liverpool
Paul Scholes (39) celebrated his 500th appearance for United with a goal as they comfortably beat Liverpool in the morning LIVE SKY Sports clash. Rio Ferdinand (66) secured the three points.

Middlesbrough 1-0 Newcastle
Yakubu's (85) late goal earned Middlesbrough their second successive win as Newcastle slumped to another defeat.

Reading 0-4 Arsenal
An awesome display from Arsenal in the afternoon LIVE SKY Sports game saw them run out 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Thierry Henry (1), Alexander Hleb (39), Robin Van Persie (50) and Henry`s (70) second from the spot.

Tottenham 1-0 West Ham
West Ham tasted defeat once again. Mido (45) scoring the only goal of the game to heap yet more pressure on Alan Pardew.

Throw in the blades and you have a sharp edge to the relegation puzzle.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
