The ‘Big Four’ Fail to Score!

This weekend for the first time in 16 years not on of the Premierships so-called ‘big four’ managed to find the net. Chelsea and Liverpool were both held at home 0-0. Man United were also held 0-0 away at Aston Villa, whilst Arsenal were beaten 3-0 away at Manchester City.

Do these results prove that the Premiership is getting better and that the other teams are slowly catching the top teams, or was it just a freaky weekend in football?

England Squad to Face Germany

Filed under: Football — Tags: , — Nerdfly @ 1:03 pm

Goalkeepers

  • Scott Carson
  • Paul Robinson (Replacement for Joe Hart)
  • David James

Defenders

  • Wayne Bridge
  • Curtis Davies
  • Glen Johnson
  • John Terry
  • Jolean Lescott
  • Michael Mancienne
  • Micah Richards
  • Matthew Upson

Midfielders

  • Gareth Barry
  • Michael Carrick
  • Stewart Downing
  • Frank Lampard
  • Steven Gerrard
  • Shaun Wright-Phillips
  • Ashley Young

Forwards

  • Gabriel Agbonlahor
  • Darren Bent
  • Peter Crouch
  • Jermain Defoe
  • Theo Walcott

I don’t know how everyone else feels but I am really pleased with the inclusion of Agbonlahor and Darren Bent. They have been 2 of the best forwards in England over the last couple of years but neither have ever really been given a chance playing for England.

Capello has stated that he will be using the Friendly against Germany as an experiment and helping him to get to know the players better which I think is a great idea. It will give the new faces a chance to prove themselves and not necessarily have to worry about the result which will help take the pressure off them.
