On the Recap: GW15 Weekend Madness

Berbaflop astonishing record = 5 goals in '10 games'
A man on a purple patch, not scoring a single goal after his hat trick on Gameweek 5 and recently looking to be ousted and out of favour, no wonder they called it Berba-Bomb this weekend. To make it more painful, losing to a friend in H2H who captaining him since his hat trick on gameweek 5. Fifty points for a single player, that's a record man. His price drop shows that most of the managers are losing patience with him prior to his match and they must be scratching their head now. His bandwagon is gathering pace and expect a 0.2 rise in the coming weekend. My advice; don't chase last weekend points.

Ten games, 41 goals scored and not a single clean sheet. Everybody really knows how to score nowadays. Recap on the weekend action:-

Elmander looked good but investments in him proved to be chasing last points; Blackpool blew a two-goal lead at The Reebok; Scorers list; Mark Davies (unknown), Martin Petrov (sub) for Bolton and Ian Evatt (defender), Luke Varney for The Tangerines.

Avram Grant had a slight chance to keep his job after 3-1 win against lacklustre Wigan; Martinez's men look forward to a relegation dogfight; Top performer was Piquionne (2 assists) while West Ham scorers were Obinna & Parker; Tom Cleverley netted the consolation.

Arsenal still the best away team in the league after putting the sword to Villa unbeaten home record 4-2; A forgettable Pires reunion and Villa have to turn to their young defender Ciaran Clark to net a brace; A long awaited star performance by Arshavin (full bonus with a goal and assist); Other goals: Chamakh, Nasri & Wilshere.

A goal by Tim Cahill couldn't save Everton's blushes after falling to the set piece prowess of West Brom 1-4; Brunt (a goal and assist) and Mulumbu (an assist and a red card) were the main culprits behind The Baggies revival; Also on the scoresheet; Paul Sharner, Somen Tschoyi & Sylvain Distin own goal; Arteta also saw red.

Stoke managed to avoid losing the match when Mathew Etherington scored in the dying minutes after Micah Richards put the ball in the net for City; Unproductive output by Tevez as Mancini tinkered with his tactics again; No wonder he want to quit football.

Possible candidate for Fabregas No. 2 (Injured)

After winning at The Fortress Bridge, Sunderland crashed down spectacularly 3-2 against Wolves but at least their strikers knew how to score (Bent & Wellbeck); The home team deserved the long awaited win and played extremely well with goals came from all departments (defence; Kevin Foley, midfield; Stephen Hunt & attack; Ebanks Blake).

Ben Foster looked comfortable to emulate Joe Hart success for Birmingham after another stirring performance in their 1-1 draw at the Craven Cottage; Hleb produced an Arsenal-esque counter attacking move to put Sebastian Larsson in the score sheet while Dempsey headed the equaliser to register their 9th draw of the season.

Refer to the first paragraph about Berba; Other notable performances were Rooney with two assists and fantasy favourite Nani with a goal and assist; Park Ji Sung netted one goal in the 7-1 drubbing and Samba netted the consolation for Rovers; I expect Rovers to lose not that easily and it looked like Allardyce was trying to protect his stars rather than winning; A nice 'demolition derby' by United and a rotten 'thanksgiving chicken' for Blackburn players.

Improving Chelsea once recorded 82% possession in the second half and couldn't settle it when The Magpies tremendously hold on for a draw after leading on the 6th minute (Andy Carroll); Drogba again looked very dominant and goal are the only thing that hinders him; Newcastle makeshift defense deserved the result while the wasteful Kalou got the Chelsea only goal to concede the top position to Manchester United for the first time.

Defoe replaced the injured VDV to register the fourth penalty miss of the season for Spurs as they produced another coming from behind act to win 2-1 against Liverpool; Martin Skrtel turned from hero to zero by scoring for both ends while speedy Lennon sealed the winning goal two minutes in the stoppage time; A really cruel blow for Roy Hodgson and his men; They have to contend for another Europa League place I reckon.

There you have it, a rather long and comprehensive review on this week edition On the Recap; The Amazing Gameweek 15.
