Watching Chelsea players at The Stadium of Light on Saturday was reminiscent of watching Wigan in 2006/07. No they aren’t embarking on an eight game losing run, but their blue kit with white sleeves threw me back to the days of Denny Landzaat, Andrew Webster and David Unsworth. I’ll let you work out who they actually were.
Goal of the Week: Stilian Petrov’s thunderbolt from long range, Everton 2-2 Aston Villa
Graeme Jones of the Week: I’m struggling to find this week’s hero, Gustavo Poyet for Brighton’s impressive start to Championship life is how desperate I am.
Graeme Souness of the Week: Michael Vorm for gifting Andrei Arshavin the winner with a comical blunder, Arsenal needed it too. Arsenal 1-0 Swansea
Quote of the Week: There are two that stand out this week. Firstly, another gem from the Soccer Saturday panel and Paul Merson: “Stoke can challenge the top six this season.” Elsewhere, there’s more crazy optimism from Steve Kean: “We (Blackburn) are capable of a top ten finish this season.”
