Gallas returns to the Emirates in North London derby19.11.2010.
Weeks might be a notoriously drawn out romance when it comes to football, mainly with the un-needed distraction of a world wide break in-between. even though, it did give us the ever-valuable “tw@t in a hat” comparison of England manager Fabio Capello. The Premier League returns with its frequent gusto this weekend, and is as mouth-watering as a immense pile of Aberdeen Angus fillet steak. Yeah, that mouth-watering!
The weekend’s major game takes place at the Emirates between Arsenal and Tottenham, a notoriously unsuccessful hunting field for the team in white. For somebody not enamored with the main talking point that this game is probable to generate it has everything to do with a Frenchman who’s the newest to have switched one club for the other.
Former captain at Arsenal, William Gallas and his infamous temper now turn out for Spurs and gratefully Paddy Power have saved the day with a few of their brilliant novelty odds. You can get 22/1 on him being sent off, and 50/1 on the Spurs defender scoring an own-goal. No odds on him throwing a strop and sitting by the post sulking. You’ve permit us down Paddy.
Blackpool and Wolves face the only occasion this season that either will have a clash colour-wise, and it will be attractive to see if they both put out a “full-strength” side going after them both being roundly criticized in the past for squad rotation.
Bodog-sponsored Fulham meanwhile welcome the Billionaires Boys Club that is Man City. It’s first time that Mark Hughes has faced his former employers and given their disaster up-front with injuries why doesn’t “Sparky” name himself amongst the subs?
