Top 10 conclusions Premier League weekend 25-26 February
1. Yet another crazy top-of-the-table clash in the Premier League. Before long we’ll have commentators observing these 5-2 and 6-1 type results and saying: “Well, these things do even themselves out over the course of the season.” Yesterday was Tottenham’s turn.
2. (La)Sagna got Tottenham on the run once again.
3. David De Gea hasn’t dropped a clanger since he last trimmed his facial fluff. That’s our theory as to what the superstitious Spaniard is up to, anyway.
4. Andre Villas Boas should just start playing David Luiz up front. That would deal with so many problems in well fell swoop.
5. Paul Robinson remembered too late in the day that his beach volleyball team had been broken up by Chris Samba’s move to Russia. The big defender wasn’t there to spike his set against Manchester City.
6. Martin O’Neill must insist as a clause in his contract that a club stocks rugby shirts before he takes a managerial position.
7. QPR debutant Samba Diakite looks like a graduate of the Paul Scholes School of Tackling.
8. Meanwhile, the original Scholes was showing his good side at Norwich. Scholes and Ryan Giggs – on target in his 900th game – showed that experience can keep Manchester United in the title race.
9. Talk about a change of Fortune for West Brom’s attack in recent weeks. Marc-Antoine and Peter Odemwingie were on-fire against Sunderland.
10. Terry Connor was handed a rollercoaster start to life in charge of Wolves. His voice in his post-match interviews suggests that an increase in his amount of shouting has been one of his first tasks.
