You may agree with him or then again you may not.

This week Chelsea score seven for the second time against the meanest defence; Plastic Villa; Villa go pear-shaped; Media Wolves after Wenger; Fabregas and Inesta out for big clash; Sad to see Zola leave; Fat Frank has 21 goals; Ipswich are over the moon with Keane; Rafa berated; What’s gone wrong Brucie; Pool’s best 45 minutes yet; Coyle left Burnley for the potential of Bolton looks frail indeed.

CHELSEA, written off by everyone, score seven for the second time this season, against the team with the so-called “meanest defence in the league.” Yet all the papers push it towards the back of their sports pages. You can bet that if it had been United we would have been reading about it for days. Good job that the Villa game was designated as a special for all the Irish supporters clubs and they could see it with their own eyes Liam.
