Then Arsenal opened their campaign against Crystal Palace who had parted company with Miracle worker Tony Pulis the day before the start of the Season. " Musical Differences" were cited. You know what I mean.
Still, of course, Palace played with freedom and guts and went ahead but the Arsenal levelled it before half time and this time the inevitable did happen and the brilliant Ramsey nicked it for the Gunners in stoppage time. The rest play today.
The Eredivisie threw up a stunning feast of goals as PSV tore apart NAC 6-1.................it may have been more but I went to bed. 2-1 just after half-time when the thrilling Depay scored a wonder free kick which he bettered later with an even more audacious set piece. A great open game. Loved it.
Serious times. After having the guts ripped out of their team by Liverpool the fixtures computer kicks Saints in the teeth with a super Sunday opener at Anfield. How horribly ironic is that? What can you say? It can only end in tears.
There were some French games on but I had to walk the dog as part of my recovery so more of that and the rest of Europe tonight. If you want me to do a round-up that is!
More reports later if I can write through the tears ! ! !
