Premiership round-up (11-12/11/06)

Premiership round-up (11-12/11/06)

Pompey somehow only drew with Fulham in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Fulham, what about the others…

Saturday 11/11/06
Blackburn 0-1 Man Utd
Louis Saha's (64) goal gave United a comfortable win in the LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game over Blackburn leaving them top of the league with Blackburn struggling.

Chelsea 4-0 Watford
Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd had hoped for an upset...no such luck here. A Didier Drogba hat trick (27,36 & 69) and an Andrei Shevchenko (52) goal giving Chelsea a comfortable win.

Everton 0-1 Aston Villa
Everton suffered a second straight defeat going down to Chris Sutton's (42) goal.

Man City 0-0 Newcastle
Two teams struggling for form, especially Newcastle played out what I've heard as being a "largely" uneventful 0-0 draw in the early LIVE SKY Sports clash. Having seen the highlights it didn't seem too bad?

Middlesbrough 1-0 West Ham
Middlesbrough's forgotten man Italian Massimo Maccarone (74) grabbed the games only goal

Sheff Utd 2-2 Bolton
Sheffield United fought back from two down to earn a point. El-Hadji Diouf (34) opened the scoring for Bolton with Kevin Davies (59) adding the second. Two in three minutes from Rob Hulse (70) and Colin Kazim-Richards (73) saw the points shared.

Wigan 3-2 Charlton
A goal feast saw Wigan just edge this game. Lee McCulloch (13) and Henri Camara (41) gave Wigan a 2-0 lead before former Pompey captain Arjan De Zeeuw (52) put through his own net to bring Charlton back into the game. Matt Jackson (78) restored the two goal lead before Marcus Bent`s (90) injury goal.

Sunday 12/11/06
Arsenal 3-0 Liverpool
In the afternoon LIVE SKY Sports clash Arsenal almost without question emphatically removed Liverpool from the title race with goals from Mathieu Flamini (41), Kolo Toure (56) and William Gallas (80).

Reading 3-1 Tottenham
In the early afternoon LIVE SKY Sports match Reading came back from Robbie Keane's (24) penalty to win 3-1 thanks to goals from Nicky Shorey (38), Steve Sidwell (45) and Kevin Doyle (79)

Pity we could have been sitting in 3rd place instead of 6th. With Watford coming next week it is important that we take maximum points and go to Newcastle with a positive approach - not forgetting our muppet cup exit.

We must take 3 against Watford! We totally deserved to win on Saturday. At least we always looked like scoring, as long as we keep that up the goals, as seen so far this season, will keep coming!

you boys are right! my message to all those who frustratingly keep saying top ten is fabulous is look at the table, look at the points. look how many are on 17 points. We must beat watford and take points away at Newcastle or we will not be in the top ten. We then have away games at liverpool, bolton west ham and arsenal, after watford our next home game is against on fire Villa. On our current performance i think its 3 wins, Reading, West Ham (1 only away against Charlton) out of 8 PL games. On that form we will be looking about 15th place. So we need to improve.

the above being my reason for frustration at LuaLua, but of course as others have reminded me i must not forget to rant about the lack of mobility and support in our defence, mainly Dejan who needs to be handing that arm band over to Sol now. Actually it seemed to me that against our mid table contemporaries Pamarot can manage.Our fortress fratton label is slipping again.and i think Harry is being too loyal to Dej, and Kanu needs a striking partner.

Midge has a point, they are truly muppet comments, well worth a visit just to see how lucky we were to get a draw.

If we seriously want to remain in the top half of the table we HAVE to bat Watford, and with all due respect at home we should be beating them. In years gone by you wouldn't think this but you have games you HAVE to win and this is one...
