On the Recap: Sunday Thrashing

Handsomely slow
Even weirder things happened on Sunday. Odd Notes continue from where I left off. Here goes:-

Odd Notes No. 6: A fortress meant to be breached
When you play Ferreira & Ivanovic at center backs, you will fear the worse. The Chelsea fortress was destined to receive the heaviest setbacks aka thrashing in their recent history against the mighty Sunderland (0-3). I repeat...Sunderland. Credit to Steve Bruce for pairing Welback with Asamoah Gyan as both were in the score sheet. The new England Messi, Nedum Onuoha bullied the home defense gracefully before providing the beauty of the day. Dare to bet he will do the same thing again this season? Serve you right Mr Ancelotti for not having extra man at the back and underestimating Sunderland side who lost 7-2 here last season.

Odd Notes No. 7: Arsenal have the best away record in the league..Seriously?
Arsenal got another win on the road and ended Everton unbeaten run. Nasri performed admirably in the real match but Fabregas outperformed him in terms of fantasy points with one goal. Bacary Sagna netted only his second strike in Arsenal shirt while Everton's Cahill was at his usual best by scoring one. Read this; last two home games = one unconvincing win and a loss (3 points); last two away games = unexpectedly two ugly wins (6 points). A shocker right? Tottenham will fancy their chances this weekend at The Emirates. This is not really the case as I think The Gunners are gaining momentum in the premiership. They are number two right now and Wenger has almost fully fit squad to choose. If you don't trust me, please watch On the Recap column again next week.

Not a good week for me as my captain choice has been woeful for the past three gameweeks. I miss my wildcard.

Please leave your feedback...
