In the second week of the season, Manchester United scored three second half goals to defeat Tottenham Hotspur, 3-0. That game was played in August 2011. Fast forward to now. Both sides reside within the table’s comfort zone, which is the only criteria for inclusion into the Champions League club. Their contest kicks off this week’s recap from the Barclay’s Premier League. Let’s kick-start this thing.

Like millions of others around the planet I have a deep and passionate love affair with the beautiful game. The latest object of my affection is midfielder Ezequiel Lavezzi. While on vacation last week, I witnessed the Napoli midfielder reduce Chelsea to crumbs in their first-leg Champions League match. The Argentine would score twice and set up another as the napolitani downed the blues, 3-1. I want Lavezzi to play in the league's top league. Fans of the premiership can only hope that the feeling is mutual. Let's kick start this thing.
MANCHESTER CITY-BLACKBURN ROVERS

Rivalries. How we sports fans adore them. The Lakers and Celtics feuded on the pro hardwood, Duke and North Carolina renewed acquaintances on the college floor, and if your favorite sport is played on blades, then Saturday night's Canadiens/Maple Leafs tilt was for you. Of course, the Democrats and Republicans made noise. Something about contraceptives and religious organizations; I tried like heck to avoid the argument. While I avoid politics, I'm attracted to the premiership. On Saturday, it served up a special rivalry when Manchester United played host to Liverpool. Let's kick-start this thing.

From the “ I wish I would have said that department;” I don’t know where I first saw it, but last Monday’s Manchester City/Chelsea game was referred to as “El Cashico.” Two days earlier Spain’s Barcelona and Real Madrid had their most recent installment of “El Classico.” The respective owners of Man City and Chelsea, Sheikh Mansour and Roman Abramovich not only can make it rain, they can make their paper descend in a downpour. Floyd Mayweather has to be "green" with envy. This observer strives for originality and creativity in reporting on the beautiful game, but on this occasion I lost out to a better rival. I pledge to up my game. Let’s kick start this thing.

This was not a good week for the Manchester brothers. Both United and little sibling City were kicked to the Champion’s League curb. Man U’s defeat came against neighborhood nerd FC Basel, while City didn’t receive any first aid from Villareal. The two premiership teams are on fire domestically, but flamed out within the continent. Let’s kick start this thing.

Robin Van Persie is the true caped crusader. Arsenal’s Dunkin’ Dutchman has scored 13 goals in 12 games to lead the entire premiership in scoring. RVP’s appetite for the back of the onion bag is the biggest reason why the gunners, described a month ago as dead men running by several “expert” soccer observers, are climbing to the top of the premiership charts.
With six goals in his last three games, Rockin’ Robin is hotter than a bikini-clad Megan Fox. Would the good times continue to roll? Let’s kick start this thing.

After a successful week of Champions League soccer by the premiership’s Big-4 (again), the Barclay’s Premier League returned to action this weekend. The big questions being asked; could Manchester City could continue their stellar start to the season? And after losing two of their previous three, would Chelsea have a reversal of fortune. Mystery, drama, intrigue; all weekly elements of the Barclay’s Premier League. Let’s kick start this thing.
QUEENS PARK RANGERS-MANCHESTER CITY….The Premiership leaders were ripe for the picking after their huge Champions League victory at Villareal (Spain) and QPR was looking forward to the harvest. Jay Bothroyd scored the game’s first goal in the 28th minute to send the home folks into a state of delirium but reality...
