The Week That Was – Premier League Review

Premier League

Premier League

The drama and action content in Premier League is unparalleled to any League in the world, leave alone Spanish Soap operas. From Chelsea’s trouncing of West Brom to Manchester City’s miraculous escape from white hart line unscathed, we at thesportsmirror.com bring out this exclusive list of what was hot and what was not in this week’s premier league.

Star of the week:

While many may circle out Didier Drogba for his terrific hat-trick against West Brom, White Hart lane saw an inspired performance from a goal keeper that saved the blushes for Manchester City. He parried off every shot that came against him from the Tottenham men, a vocal goal keeper is what every team needs and in Joe Hart Manchester City have probably one of the best keepers England has ever produced.

Flop of the week:

For a person arriving on a Bosman transfer, the least can expect him to do is run around for 90 minutes. However Joe Cole had other plans. Joe Cole’s ebullience got the better of him and he tackled Laurent Koscileny to receive a direct red card. The consequence, he relieves Roy of his selection headaches as he doesn’t have many alternatives other than playing Gerrard in the hole behind Torres or Ngog. Talk about double edged sword!

Surprise of the week:

Undoubtedly Blackpool’s thumping of Wigan places them in the surprise of the week section. It is not every day you see a newly promoted side thrash a premier league side and Blackpool’s victory just reaffirms the reason why we love this league. Blackpool’s meteoric rise from a Championship side to a Premier league side, topped by a mauling of Wigan – just the recipe the cook suggested.

Blunder of the week:

Unparalleled, Unthinkable and the list of adjectives seem to be growing longer by the passing day. The goal keeper jokes have come back to Anfield for the first time after Jersy Dudek’s departure. Almunia must have let out a big sigh of relief on his absence from this column.
