Pretty good day of football yesterday, if you happen to be neutral or support a side that came out on top. Absurdly uncontroversial controversy at Old Trafford as Owen scores deep into injury time to give United a 4-3 win over City. Bellamy will be the subject of a police inquiry following his altercation with a fan. Fair play to him though; he's clearly gone over to tell the bloke he's a prat, been spat at and given him a bit of a clip. Ferdinand looked like a bit of a cunt after that, especially because O'Shea was doing a decent enough job of calming Bellamy down.
Diouf will also be the subject of police attention after allegedly racially abusing a ball boy in Blackburn's 3-0 capitulation at Everton. Fulham looked half the team they were at points last year, falling to a lacklustre 2-1 defeat at Wolves. I do like Mick McCarthy though so that pleased me.
Chelsea pretty convincingly do away with Spurs 3-0 despite never really hitting stride. Redknapp takes time out of his busy schedule chastising his own players and advertising Nintendo games to piss and moan about a 50/50 penalty decision that didn't go his way while comprehensively failing to mention Assou-Ekotto's blatant handball in the area only minutes later.
In other Chelsea news, the Kakuta case picks up speed as it emerges the French FA ratified the English FA's transfer paperwork on the deal. Goodbye, registration ban. It seems pretty absurd that none of this stuff was brought up in the original hearing but that's FIFA for you.
Wenger is apparently readying a mini transfer bing in January with anyone at West Ham under the age of 21 on his radar.
