Whoa Nellie! Another doozy of a weekend of footy, eh? Barcelona lost at Camp Nou, Matic lost his head at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea lost two points, The Special One went off the tracks on Sky Sports, Joey Barton did an excellent Joey Barton imitation, Bayern Munich scored six goals, Spurs got a late penalty miss/follow-up from Big Daddy Kane to snatch a point from West Ham, Liverpool slid past Southampton in a deluge at St. Mary's, there was too much rain to play the Genoa Derby, and Manchester United lost at Swansea. Attack!
We noted above that Barcelona lost at home this weekend. Here are Five Things We Learned in La Liga, and here's a wee review. More tomorrow from El Sid.
|The rain in Italy falls mainly in Genoa...|
Over in Italy, no go in Genoa, and although Totti scored for Roma, they fell further behind Juventus. Matches today in Serie A include Napoli vs. Sussudio and Cagliari vs. Inter. More tomorrow with Paolo. He'll also give us more insight into the sad situation at Parma.
Since we're in Europe, how about a European Team of the Week? Lovely. Wait. Massimo Maccarone?!?!
Back to the EPL for a second: How to replace the near-indispensable Nemanja Matic? Yes, how will Chelsea do it?
That's a nice run for a Monday. We'll see you tomorrow with scribes and Champions League previews.
