10 Things the Premiership taught us this week

  1. Maybe Blackburn fans were right after all. Seven defeats in eight games for Steve Kean has seen his side lose their Premiership status. Interesting times ahead for the Venkys.
  1. Roberto Martinez is a miracle worker. Fact. That Wigan squad is atrocious on paper.
  1. Aston Villa are one lucky side. Releasing Emile Heskey is a start, but they need the youngsters to really stand up to be counted next year.
  1. Papiss Cisse’s magician status is officially confirmed. He proved against Manchester Cityhe can do the invisible act as well…
  1. Roberto Mancini’s tactics deserve some credit. When Nigel De Jong came on, no one could understand why. Two Yaya Toure goals later (playing in a more advanced position) and City are 90 minutes away from the title. Take a bow Roberto.
  1. United should have probably made the title race a bit closer. A cricket score was on offer against Swansea.
  1. Isn’t it funny how Liverpool are now behind Fulham as well…
  1. Djibril Cisse, red cards aside, was an inspired signing by Mark Hughes. His outstanding finishing may keep QPR up.
  1. Richard Dunne, class defender, prone to brain explosions. What on earth was that challenge all about. Add that to the ‘Richard Dunne – own goals, red cards and conceded penalties’ DVD that will be a bestseller when he retires.
  1. Arsenal are lucky Tottenham can’t take the pressure. Dropping points at home to Norwich isn’t good enough for Champions League contenders.
