After Wigan’s cup heroics at the weekend, there was a possibility that they could perform the ‘Great Escape’ that they have managed on countless occasions, and in fashionable style, too. It looked like survival was on the cards after some impressive wins and vital

Due to various commitments through school and other means, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to write a column for O-Posts.

It’s been a busy Easter weekend in the Premier League and, as the saying goes; a week is a long time in football. It took Sunderland less than 24 hours to appoint controversial character Paolo di Canio who replaced Martin O’Neill as manager on Easter Sunday.

  Tottenham 2 Arsenal 1 The North London Derby once again didn’t disappoint and, just as we all expected, Gareth Bale was on point. Perhaps he didn’t have a scintillating performance as many of us were hoping for, but he popped up with a crucial goal despite otherwise being somewhat ineffective. It was a cagey

All of the nine Premier League fixtures survived the snowy conditions, and it certainly didn’t put a dampener on the games. Towards the end of the week, Southampton sacked boss Nigel Adkins, who brought the Saints into the top-flight with two successive promotions.

This wasn’t the most memorable Premier League weekend to date, although there were three matches that really caught my eye.   Liverpool 1 Aston Villa 3 Brendan Rogers’ reign as Liverpool boss took another step backwards as Paul Lambert’s Villa took to Anfield.
