Some random thoughts on the weekend’s action
1. How do you expect me to concentrate fully on the Prem when the Olympics are still on? If the opening round of games felt a bit flat, that’s because they had to compete with the Greatest Show on Earth, starring Usain Bolt et al. Speaking of Bolt, he’d make some flying winger, no?
More conclusions after the jump…
2. As I suspected, Spurs’ fine pre-season form added up to… not much. Another sluggish start for the Yids. And sell Berbatov already.
3. Bravo Big Phil – I actually enjoyed watching Chelsea. In terms of completed passes, eight of the top 13 players this weekend were from Scolari’s brave new team. They passed Pompey to death.
