Top 10 conclusions Premier League weekend 11-12 September
1. The word schadenfreude was created for watching Sir Alex Ferguson concede two injury time goals. It is unlikely Fergie would have complained if the ref had blown up early on this occasion.
2. The 3-3 draw was even more miraculous for Everton considering one of their centre-backs seemed intent on a Manchester United win. Take a bow, Sylvin Distin.
3. Arsenal sometimes too hard to walk the ball into the net, but when they succeed it looks fantastic. Carlos Vela’s goal was arguably the best team goal the Premier League has ever seen.
4. Ghana’s World Cup star Asamoah Gyan made quite an impact with a goal on his Sunderland debut. But Wigan’s own World Cup star Antolin Alcaraz was on hand to grab an equaliser.
5. Robert Green looks like his form is continuing his form from the summer.
6. And Joe Hart seems to have picked up a few tips from his England colleague. The usually unflappable Manchester City keeper was caught in No Man’s Land to hand Blackburn a goal.
7. Pepe Reina, on the other hand, showed them exactly how it should be done. He single-handedly (literally on a couple of occasions) earnt Liverpool a point against Birmingham.
8. Now we know what DJ Campbell meant about “unfinished business” at Blackpool. Premier League goals and Premier League wins seems to be high on the agenda.
9. Sunderland might like to switch Lee Cattermole to a pay-per-minute deal.
10. OTP’s favourite quote from every single pundit this weekend: “It’s good that Wayne Rooney was left out otherwise we would be talking about him.” Erm, you just did. Every last one of you.
