Liverpool? This is two draws to the newly promoted clubs, Swansea and Norwich at home I believe, Liverpool defeated a 10 man Everton and the red card in that game some have thought was bogus and they defeated West Brom likewise with a fall that many question that led to a penalty kick. I did not see the Everton game and I think the WBA call could go either way. Andy Carrol missed a sitter so I hear....those things happen. But of course, we can't forget Liverpool were defeated badly by Tottenham, nonetheless, they remain in the top 6 teams.
On top of this, Chelsea really, lost to QPR, lost to Arsenal, I thought the Ivanovic pass to Lampard heading it in was a great goal but they had a fight against Blackburn.
To Mexico, a country in turmoil but man, they are playing some good football down there...Pele said in 5 years Mexico will be better than Argentina and Uruguay, they certainly have talent.
I'm still learning their playoff system, it sounds to me like they have 2 champions a year, an opening (apertura) and closing (clausura) tournament of the top 8 teams per campaign. Sound confusing? The soccerway page might be of help.
Last comment, Wolverhampton in my view played Man City very good. Now today, we saw a Man City team that had to be resting a few of the starters get by Queen's Park Rangers. But the Wolverhampton Wanderers display I thought was gutsy. Tomorrow is really a six pointer vs. Wigan. I really don't see Wigan winning this at all. The Latics would be fortunate to get a draw. Wigan does have some talent, Victor Moses, selected for the Nigerian National Football/soccer team and others. We will see.
Bolton Stoke, well, I stuck my neck out on this one? And you know why? The Oct. FourFourTwo did have an article on Owen Coyle so possibly misled, I'm picking an upset.
Likewise, all this time, I saw the Everton game as being a possible loss for Newcastle and then, Lawro picked the Toffees to win, so again a throw of the dice and that didn't work out. One has to start thinking Newcastle is better than Chelsea and Liverpool at this point. Chelsea need Drogba? He's not to be found though it's clear they have others to step up, Lampard and Mata for example. Lampard is having a good year. Maybe he should be team captain if he's selected for the England team.
