Another weekend passes in the Premier League and another 6 goals for Chelsea, fantasy football indeed. Mind you, it does help when the opposition is as inept as Wigan – even Blackpool put four past them last weekend. Carlo Ancelotti is remaining grounded despite Chelsea smashing in 12 goals in the opening two matches “It is impossible to think we are always going to score six goals in a game, this is not real football, this is PlayStation” said the Chelsea boss. If indeed this was a Playstation game Wigan boss Martinez would have thrown his controller against the wall and hit the reset button by the time Chelsea scored their fourth goal. Worrying times for the Wigan boss as he looks to add to his squad before the transfer window shuts in under two weeks.
Another team that got hit for six were Aston Villa, this time it was newly promoted Newcastle who handed out the punishment. First on the score sheet was Barry Chuckle lookalike Joey Barton, the Toon midfielder had promised to keep his moustache until Newcastle had won a game, so eager was Joey to get rid of the ridiculous ‘tache he rammed home the first of 6 goals to ensure a Newcastle victory.
Aston Villa care taker boss Kevin Macdonald must be desperate for chairman Randy Learner to find a permanent boss to take charge, the US coach Bob Bradley has thrown his hat into the ring along with Ronald Koeman and El Diego. Personally, I’m holding on to the small hope that Diego gets the job, if Newcastle can win 6-0 against Villa surely anything is possible?
And finally, lets not forget Arsenals return to form with a 6-0 win over Blackpool, it was an inevitable score line after Blackpool had been reduced to 10 men midway through the first half. A thoroughly convincing win as the gunners ran riot. Welcome to the Premier League Blackpool.
