Christmas Build Up

It is coming up to the busiest part of the football season, but also the most exciting. This is when your team can change their season for good or bad the festive period has been known for making or breaking a season. Chelsea sit top of the tree, but are looking venerable at set pieces an area where they use to be so strong. Against Everton the Blues and especially keeper, Petr Cech looked like an accident waiting to happen. They looked like a pub team on a Sunday morning with some shocking defending. However it turned out to be a point gained as Manchester United lost at home to Aston Villa. This was Villa’s first win at Old Trafford since 1983, Gabby Agbonlahor, who got the winner, was not even born yet!!

United’s defensive problems have eased with the return of Vidic and Brown. But United may have to dip into the £80 million kitty left from Ronaldo’s transfer. Maybe David Villa or David Silva from Valencia?

The race for fourth place is heating up. Villa, Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool are all fighting for that place. Only 5pts separate them and they all have the credentials for the Champions League place.

I had too include Figueroa’s remarkable goal for Wigan in their 2-2 draw away at Stoke. A great strike from his own half.!!
