Happy midweek then chaps and chapettes, and despite an awful weekend weather-wise, a good time was had by all. The two pace-setters
Finally, the two glamour games this weekend saw Hull play Bolton, and
The BIG game this weekend was of course in
It’s rare for a keeper to get this award but Jaaskelainen just edges it this week over a brace-scoring Robbie Keane. The giant Finn was in absolutely inspired form as Bolton further helped to burst the
Scott Parker always respect around our office for looking commendably like a World War II fighter pilot, however this weekend he proved he can play a bit too. In the build-up to Jack Collison’s opener at Upton Park, he delightfully backheeled the ball and wrong-footed the entire Everton defence. Kudos Mr Parker, kudos.
I don’t know much about Rafael, but I think he’s quite sweet. He also has ace hair. Anyway, after coming on for the ailing Gary Neville, the young Brazilian was excellent both in defence and attack, netting this cracking volley with five minutes left on the clock to worry the Arsenal faithful as they clock-watched.

Depending on who you talk to, Steve Sidwell is either unlucky or a complete prick. Regardless of your opinion on his various transfer sagas, I guess it was good to see him starting a game for Villa this weekend after quite a long lay-off with a broken arm. He marked his debut with a goal, sure, but then unfortunately underlined it by gifting
Special Mention of the Week – Darren Bent
He’s got a lot of stick over the last couple of years but it seems that finally Darren Bent is finally finding his scoring boots for Tottenham. Following a superb hat-trick last week against Dynamo Zagreb, Bent once again netted for Spurs as the Harry Redknapp show keeps on rolling. Both goals were sweet against
