  2. Premier League goal of the week – David Luiz for Chelsea against Bolton Wanderers

    by , 28th February 2012 at 06:10 PM (11v11 blog)
    After fingers were critically pointed in the direction of the Brazilian’s defensive qualities in the potentially crucial midweek Champions League defeat in Napoli, David Luiz displayed his finest attacking skills to give Chelsea the lead against their determined visitors.

    One of the scapegoats for the Blues' stuttering season, he began the attack himself, intercepting Nigel Reo-Coker’s slack pass before driving towards the Bolton area and passed the ball out to Didier Drogba on the left. Although the striker’s cross was not cleanly struck, Wanderers’ defender David Wheater could not clear the danger. Luiz collected, checked inside the Bolton back and coolly curled his shot into the net.


    The splendid goal gave the £26 million signing from Benfica the ...

  6. Brighton's trio of own goals

    by , 20th February 2012 at 05:22 PM (11v11 blog)
    It has been widely reported that Brighton & Hove Albion created FA Cup history yesterday when they 'scored' three own goals in their 6-1 Fifth Round tie defeat at Liverpool.



    Although very rare, three own goals by the same team in a game is not unique.

    In fact, it happened as recently as last Tuesday (14 February). Peterhead's 6-1 loss at Elgin City in the Scottish Third Division included OG's by David Ross, Rory McAllister and Callum MacDonald.

    The Premier League's only own goal hat-trick was especially extraordinary.

    In a relegation season, Sunderland lost 1-3 at home to Charlton Athletic in February 2003 with the visitors benefitting from three gifts from their generous hosts in the ...

  8. Premier League performance of the week: Harry Redknapp

    by , 15th February 2012 at 10:19 PM (11v11 blog)
    Harry for England!
    Premier League performance of the week goes to Harry Redknapp of Tottenham (hopefully soon England.)
    The Spurs boss woke up on Wednesday morning with the possibility of ending the day in prison. Instead, he went to his bed dreaming of becoming England’s next manager.
    Harry was cleared of two charges of evading tax after a 13-day trial before being installed as odds-on favourite to replace Fabio Capello as England boss following the Italian’s shock resignation.
    The week ended with a resounding 5-0 win against Newcastle United that keeps Spurs on track for a Champions League place and maintains the possibility of their first title since 1961. And to continue Harry’s magic touch in the transfer market, the five-goal salvo included a brace from ...
  9. Premier League goal of the week: Yakubu v QPR

    by , 14th February 2012 at 08:39 PM (11v11 blog)
    The 11v11 goal of the week was scored by Yakubu for Blackburn Rovers against Queens Park Rangers.

    • Along with Wolverhampton Wanderers’ heavy defeat to West Bromwich Albion, the win against fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers lifted Rovers out of the bottom three, but where would they be without their leading scorer?
    • On his return from a three-match ban, Yakubu’s 15th minute opener took his season total to 14 goals.
    • Taking control of Steven Nzonzi’s flick-on with an amazingly deft touch for such a big man, surrounded by QPR defenders, the former Everton hitman spun and fired a right-foot shot into the bottom corner.
    • Worth his considerable weight in gold to Rovers’ worrying cause, manager Steve Kean was fully of praise for his burly striker:


    “If you ...
