Week two has passed and the Premier League season is now blowing away the cobwebs and clicking into gear. There were many talking points from the weekend’s fixtures, with ‘doctor-gate’ dominating proceedings, while Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool maintained their 100% records to keep themselves in the title battle alongside Leicester City!
Delving a little below the surface there were some talking points that may have slipped under football fans’ radars, and one of the big ones came courtesy of Manchester City hero, Paul Dickov. The Scot’s Doncaster side accidently scored while attempting to return the ball to Bury’s goalkeeper, Christian Walton, and despite the goal having put his side into the lead, manager Dickov ordered his troops to let their opponents dribble through unopposed to net a 95th minute leveller. The Man City hero was then give a Football League Fair Play Award, proving that nice guys can prosper.
Elsewhere Garry Monk was urged to think twice about any England managerial ambitions he may have by Steve ‘Umbrella’ McClaren, somewhat bursting the early season bubble the Swans boss has created.
Of course there was much, much more, and our very own Marcus Speller has been looking at the most interesting points. Watch the video below!
