Weekend Joy!

What a great weekend for football!! Firstly Liverpool saw off Everton in what was an X-rated derby game, I was wincing through most of the first half challenges – one inparticular to Javier Mascherano from Pienaar. This tackle should have been a straight red, a leg breaker if ever I saw one but thankfully Masherano was able to carry on despite a crunched shinpad! It was a game low on quality but high on passion and grit as Liverpool held strong despite playing with 10 men for an hour of the game. I celebrated like we won the cup at the full time whistle, it was a massive win for Liverpool and I just hope they can keep the same intensity for the trip to Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Another joyous result was Millwall ending Norwichs unbeaten run of 16 league games to give us a nice winner at over 2/1! And the surprise of the weekend for me was seeing Man City humbled by Hull, I had underestimated Hull in this match as I expected a stroll for the Man City boys – oh well, still well up for the weekend and moving on this weeks fixtures.

Crystal Palace will serve us well again this week, they have been on fire since they announced administration proceedings. They face a Swansea team on Tuesday night who themselves are playing some good football but Paula Sousa’s comments about “Palace should have been relegated for going into administration” will provide the carrot which Warnock will dangle in front of his players before the game. As I have said before Warnock is a master of rallying the troops and Sousa should refrain from making such comments before you play the opposition!!

I like the look of Palace win (draw no bet) at 1.75 with – or those feeling braver back Palace to win at 2.50.

Good Luck All.
