Three teams standing

Alright lads!! Footy’s back again and the third week of English Football has been a roller coaster ride. Only 3 teams left undefeated in the Premiership. Let’s take a look at the games…..

First up, Chelsea. What can I say? Eden Hazard is back in form baby!!! He opened the scoring at 9 minutes in, with a low curling shot at the bottom left with a Nemanja Matic assist. Next up, Willian scored the second goal at 41 minutes. Diego Costa was the one responsible for the beautiful pass in the box for an easy Willian goal. Victor Moses slotted in Chelsea’s final goal of the game, at 89 minutes. Lovely cross from Pedro. Chelsea has scored in the dying minutes of the game in the first 3 games.

Manchester United just got a win barely. Throughout the game, it was like they’re playing pingpong with the ball. I really wanted Zlatan to score a goal since he is my captain in a fantasy league I’m playing. But then again, Marcus Rashford scored the goal in the injury time, with a Wayne Rooney assist. Marcus Rashford, is one for the future. I hope the kid gets developed by Jose Mourinho and given ample playing time.

The last undefeated team in the Prem is Manchester City. The Citizens thumped the Hammers at home in a 3-1 thrashing, with Raheem Sterling netting 2 goals. Sterling scored the first goal at the 7 minute mark from a Nolito assist, and his second goal came from a David Silva assist in the injury time, rounding around Adrian for a tap in. The Citizen’s second goal was from Fernandinho in the 18th minute mark, coming from a Kevin De Bruyne assist. Chelsea, why did we release De Bruyne again?

The Hammers pulled back a goal at the 58th minute mark from a Michail Antonio header. The goal was spectacular, earning Antonio a call up for the English squad from the big man himself, Sam Allardyce. This is what we have been saying before and kept trying to pound it in Woy Hodgson’s head. Bring Antonio to the Euros!!!

I will be reviewing the other games of the week from the Prem in a second post. Once again, this is Footy, and you guys stay cheeky. Cheers!

EPL Second Week Madness!!! – part 1

Alright lads!!! The English Premier League had nasty surprises on it’s second week of play!!

Hull AFC, which is a new promoted team with currently no manager and only 13 senior players, beat Liverpool 2-0. Adam the Llama, I mean Adam Lallana, missed a lot of chances to score.. Philippe Coutinho, who was impressive against their first game against Arsenal on the first week, was nowhere to be found. Mr. Klopp, will you be building a dynasty in The Kop? Or are you gonna be another statistic?

Next up, The Citizens, thumped Stoke City, 4-1. Sergio Aguero wants to win the Golden Boot this year, already with 3 goals under his belt. I guess Manchester City did it in a cold afternoon in Stoke.

And let’s talk about the team I support, Chelsea. Chelsea won again. The Conte Effect is real!!! Diego Costa, sealed the winner at the 87th minute. Last game he did it in the 89th. Stop giving me a heart attack please. Michy Batshuayi, the Belgian midfielder they just acquired is showing that he will be a future world beater in the years to come. He started the run that Costa scored against West Ham a week ago, and scored his debut goal against Watford to equalize on the second game. Hell of a deal that kid is!!

Alright!! That’s it for this week lads!!! Will be talking about other teams on my next post. Cheers!!!

First week of the Premier League

Alright lads!!! We are back again and this time I will be talking about the roller coaster ride of the first week of the Premier League.

First things first, Hull City won their first game against Leicester City, the 15/16 EPL champions. This could be the effect of losing Kante, now they don’t have someone who will win the ball back in the middle of the field. Maybe we will see a trend of bottom tier teams competing for spots in the Top 10 of EPL.

Arsenal against Liverpool. Only thing I can say about that game can be summed up in 2 words, Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian just bossed the midfield. With his teammates Adam the Llama, I mean Adam Lallana and Saido Mane who had a goal a piece. Mane is starting to pay off the transfer fee that Klopp paid Southampton to get the Senegalese striker. Are we gonna be seeing a Jurgen Klopp dynasty in the making in The Kop?

Next up is Manchester City against Sunderland. Sergio Aguero opened up his 2016/2017 scoring account with a goal from the 12 yard pot at 4 minutes in. Jermain Defoe, showing his class as a true goalscorer, leveled the match at 71 minutes in. The Citizens barely copped out a win if it isn’t for a deflection of off Paddy McNair thus scoring an own goal. Way to give Pep his first win Paddy, no booze for you tonight I guess.

Bournemouth didn’t stand a chance. With the amount of firepower United has, they should have made this goal margin pretty easy. Let’s just hope we don’t see a repeat of the MK Dons episode from a few years back.

Last but not the least, Chelsea against West Ham.This is a game that was destined for a draw, up until the 89th minute where Diego Costa showed us his heroics of scoring the winning goal. This was a match that was very hard to watch for me because I wanted The Blues to get their first win and start their season running. Let’s hope Eden Hazard keeps his form up and provides us more wins. Also, Michy Batshuayi showed us a glimpe of what he can do, leading off the build-up play that made Costa score the winning goal. Like we all would like to say, In Roman we Trust.

That’s it for today lads! I will be posting updates on the coming second week of the Premier League.

EPL is Here!!!

Alright football fans!! EPL has just started and what a season it is gonna be. The club that I support got very good players this transfer window, as well as a new manager. I do hope Antonio Conte replicates what he did in the Serie A with Juventus on his stay with Chelsea. And I do hope that Eden Hazard (*cough* last season choke *cough*) doesn’t do that again. Michy Batshuayi is also a good buy, gives us very good striking options up top. The cream of the deal is getting N’Golo Kante from the 2015/2016 EPL champions Leicester City. Now we have a very good engine in Kante. I wonder if the rumors are true, the Earth 70% covered by water and the rest by Kante.. Lol!!

In other teams of the league, Pep Guardiola signed with Manchester City, and started to bolster up his squad. Adding John Stones(overrated English defender) from Everton for £50 million. What is up with these English players and over-inflated price tags?!?! Raheem Sterling, I’m looking at you. Anyway, aside from that, lets talk about the good players Pep brought in. Ilkay Gundogan from Dortmund, Leroy Sane from Schalke 04 and an old Nolito from Celta Vigo. Pep really loves stealing players from other leagues where he managed teams. Haha!!

Next up is the other half of the Mancunians, Manchester United. Boring build up play gets replaced with park the bus. Louis Van Gaal out, Jose Mourinho in. Now let’s see how Jose spent his money this transfer window. He signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic from PSG on a one year deal. Zlatan, although old, is still the quintessential CF or a target man. His debut goal against Galatasaray speaks about the quality of Zlatan. I mean, a bicycle kick within 3 minutes of his debut for United? Wow!!! Next up is another player from Dortmund, Henrikh Mkhitaryan. He will definitely add fire power up on the right side of the United squad. And lastly, Paul Pogba from Juventus. United spent £100 million, yes you heard that right. £100 million to get the youngster back to the squad, which a few years ago, they sold the youngster to Juventus on a free transfer. Crazy huh?!?!

Well that’s all for now in this episode of EPL Is Here. I will be reviewing other teams on the next episode. Cheers!!!

Oh and before I forget; football fans, especially those who follow the EPL, have your significant other sign this document.. LOL!!
