Still football carries merrily along and Saints dismal 5 game losing streak back in November is now forgotten after last few results including todays win at Man Utd, plus beating Arsenal Crystal Palace and Everton and the draw against Chelsea leave a good taste.
Wins also for Arsenal, Liverpool (Awful game on TV), Burnley, Chelsea , Leicester, West Brom and Palace. Palace went 1-0 down vs Spurs but end up winning 2-1 with Alan Pardew in charge after he'd left Newcastle.West broms new manager Tony Pulis starts with a win though Pardews replacement (Temp) at Newcastle loses.
In Spain Real stay top with 3-0 win over Espanyol Barca currently leading Atletico 2-1 at Camp Nou (15 mins left). My wife wouldn't let me watch this live because we watched the Southampton Utd game ! ! ! !
In Italy My two "local" teams drew the Rome derby 2-2 with Totti getting the equaliser at Stadio Olimpico. Juve win again with Pogba and Vidal amongst the goals at Napoli after last weeks draw to retake the lead at the top of SerieA.
In France on this awful weekend of violence Lyon leapfrog Marseille with their win over Toulouse. Marseille's loss at Montpelier costly. PSG lose 4-2 at lowly Bastia. What has happened to PSG????
Oh, late Messi goal seals Barca's win.
