Lets start with in form Liverpool who destroyed Southampton in the League Cup mid-week ( didn't go I had a bad feeling about this and our poor recent form ! ). Well 'Pool went to struggling Newcastle expecting an easy victory I imagine and low and behold Newcastle won 2-0 ! ! ! Klopp still smiling ????? Prob not. Yesterday Struggling Bournemouth went to Chelsea and blow me down the South coast minnows won 1-0. Strange. Jose blamed a fish, two dogs and the janitor for the defeat...............................oh and the referee of course.
A severely struggling ME went to see Saints take on bottom club Aston Villa. What this game proved is that Saints can't shoot or head the the ball goal-wards or mark opponents. After battering the Villa for most of 1st half Villas 1st proper attack. Goal ! Got one back but pretty poor .
Wins for Stoke Arsenal Leicester and Watford. Stoke were brilliant beating City ( makes me a little sick saying that ! ) Utd get a brilliant 0-0 draw with West Ham.
National League Eastleigh travel Stourbridge and grab a 2-0 win in the FA Cup. A Huge result as this means "load a money" if they draw a big club.
Ok, what occurring in Europe.
Italy. Frosinone lose against CHIEVO. Inter and Fiorentina both win 3rd place for Napoli after defeat at Bologna Roma draw. Juve up to 5th and within 6 points of top.
