On the Recap: Return of The Weekend Kings

The fun was short-lived
I think by now everyone already knew the result but here some of the weekend recaps:-

Gunners & Liverpool identical win
- Two former fantasy kings made a comeback; VPersie with a hattrick (exceptional case of chasing last points ;D but I have already consider him since last week for Gunners double) and El Nino with a brace to register King Kenny first win since 19... I can't remember (this phrase really exaggerated his hero status!);

- Wigan could get something if VPersie still injured; Chamakh may be out for a while; Wolves can not muster a back to back wins; Kenny will stick with his new look back four;

Tale of local rivals
- Berbatov scored his third hattrick of the season and DBent still in the scoresheet for his latest debut; United on the rise and City title aspiration might come too early;

- Rooney might score a hattrick to complement his strike partner after Fergie challenge him; Brums thrashing didn't hide Bentley brilliance; Same old Villa rearguard completed the job successfully; 100 million pound striking force can't buy success for The Citizen;

Home sweet home success
- Dempsey hat trick may have to wait after netting another brace even though Fulham have two strikers upfront; Blackburn inflicted a fourth consecutive away defeats for The Baggies; Unexpected clean sheets though;

- Gamst Pedersen comeback didn't materialised while Dunn outshone him, maybe its time to consider his future; Stoke away hoodoo extends to two in a row as Ricardo Fuller unsettled (his transfer saga); After midweek game, Fulham upcoming fixtures look a little bit rosy; Saturday marked West Brom as a relegation hopeful;

Near-fatal stalemate
- Spurs title challenge looked to be over after narrowly avoided defeat against 'Fuming Pardew' men; West Ham almost escape with a win against out of sort Everton;

- From the three bottom club, The Hammers look likely to be safe on the weekend; After Seamus Coleman, now Bilyaletdinov got a fair chance to prove himself; Newcastle are more than capable to survive without Andy Carroll service;

He's in a transfer dilemma

Unexpected Tangerines twist
- Sunderland surprised yet again by winning away to show that Bent was never missed; Kieran Richardson is their new Jack of all trades; Typical Charlie Adam performance with a penalty goal plus some bonus;

- Adam looks set to be absent on midweek after asking to be transfered (already rejected); Sunderland may climb to the Champions League spot soon, very soon;

Latest***The rising champion
- Ancelotti's men mustered their first away win in style since October with four (4) different scorers; The former men staring in this fixture, Essien, Malouda & Drogba all performed without Lampard;

- Don't rule out the former champion, they haven't run out of ideas yet; Bolton are fast becoming like Villa last year, free falling down the table on the second part of the season; 

Three extra fixtures to commence shortly; Expect the big guns to shine again; Stay tuned...
