Super Saturday and Sunday

My comments on three Premiership games played over the weekend.

My namesake does Arsenal proud

OK, cheap thrill. I’m referring to Robin VAN Persie and his amazing flying kick which scored a goal. And that was his second for the match. I was out with the girls that night and came home learning that Arsenal had won away at Charlton. Yay!
Famed Arsenal blog, Arseblog, titles its post “Supervan”. I like that name too. You can also watch a multi-angle video replay of Van Persie’s flying volley on that page.
BBC’s feature on Arsene Wenger’s 10 years is pretty riveting. Le Professeur definitely looks better now than when he first arrived!

Ole ole – the return of Super Sub!

Disclaimer: I am NOT a Manchester United fan. There are already enough of you in Singapore to make it boring. But I do admire individual players from many different teams.
One of them is Ole Gunnar Solskjær. I was glad to see him return to form, after being sidelined by injury for 2-3 years. Of course, I hope he never gets to turn his guns on the REAL Gunners.
Something’s up with Wayne Rooney. He’s never been so off-form for such a long period. I’m suspicious. Ronaldo on the other hand is trying his best, though he’s missing something but I don’t know what. Well, he’s definitely not missing the goalpost! 😛

Korean scores for Reading in 90 seconds, winning match

The Sunday Times ran a feature on three Koreans playing in the Premiership and how Koreans generally are faring better than the Japanese. I noticed that too, after initial media interest over players like Nakata, Ono and Inamoto a few years ago.
With the article fresh in my mind, the news flashed that one of these Koreans just scored a goal against West Ham. I missed the powerful long-shot goal by Seol Ki-Hyeon but I’m sure Koreans will be reading and watching it on the news for the next few days.
Reading however ran out of steam and resorted to time-wasting tactics, which makes me not like them as much as I liked the more fiesty Wigan last season.

    You read arseblog too? Wow… Didn’t know you follow the Arsenal so intently.
    Van’s goal (u like that eh?) was the bomb! It blew our minds when we saw it at the pub. You can imagine the scenes when the ball hit the net…
    As for Man USA, I only like Giggs. He’s the only respectable player worth any mention. 😉
