That Oscar goal. What a first touch, and a sublime finish. (In case the GIF doesn't load well, click here)
From the League Office
"We have had some user feedback regarding Chelsea's Hazard scoring zero points since the start of the season. Please note, there are 2 Hazards that play for Chelsea: E. Hazard and T. Hazard.
T. Hazard is currently on loan outside of the Premier League and will be removed from the fantasy game next week. The reason for this is to give users the chance to replace him in their starting 11."
I'd hate to be one of those managers. Think of the number of points they could have missed out on (Hazard points + entry-priced midfielder a la Michu/Cazorla). Ouch.
"I think if you look at the squad - Gaston [Ramirez] came on and looked the part and he's only going to get better once he starts to learn English.
It didn't take long for the Chelsea locker room to discover that there's some fun to be had translating Spanish names into English; shortly after his arrival from Valencia, Juan Mata was dubbed Johnny Kill by his team-mates.
Adding set piece takers to my Week 4 Premier League team. Out go Torres, Dyer, Vidic, and Davies. In are Snodgrass, Guthrie, Baines, and Maicon. * subject to change Update: This also swaps out road teams in favour of those playing at home (save for Maicon over Vidic).
Pretty amazing. Can he reach 100 in a year?:
"59 goals in 2012 was the tally Lionel Messi reached on Friday, meaning that he has already equalled his 2011 haul – in 25 fewer matches. The Barcelona star needed 70 appearances for club and country to reach this total last year, whereas it has taken him just 45 this time, making for an average of 1.3 goals per game. Messi now needs just one more goal to emulate his best-ever performance in a calendar year: 60 goals over the course of 2010. The 25-year-old would have dearly loved to reach that landmark in Peru last night, but he failed to score for the first time in seven appearances for Argentina. He had gone into the match having scored ten times in his previous six outings, becoming the first Albiceleste star since Hernan Crespo 11 years before to find the net in six successive internationals."
