Danny's Football Bluff

It’s going to be an odd Football Bluff this week. Normally I like to watch my team [Celtic] before I start reporting on all the other matches. However since we’re already up 5-0 at half time I figure I can safely assume we’ve got this won. It’s always awkward searching through match reports whilst trying to avoid a specific one… but I digress…

The best A-League match this weekend was the battle of the cellar dwellers. Melbourne Heart v Adelaide United. Although the quality of football wasn’t that high, both these teams have defence like a broken foosball table. Adelaide went 2-0 up within twenty minutes. Heart tried to respond but their strange tactic of kicking the ball anywhere but into the goal limited their scoring chances. Dead Manager Walking John Aloisi changed that tactic in the second half and with fifteen minutes left, Heart lead 3-2. Although the final goal was thanks to a hand ball penalty against Tarek Elrich, which was impressive considering he touched the ball with his chest. Adelaide equalised five minutes later and the match ended 3-3.

Ooh Celtic scored again, 6-0 now.

Martin Jol has been sacked as Fulham manager after a poor start to the year. Providing football fans worldwide a timely reminder that Fulham exist.

Liverpool have returned to their choking ways, losing 3-1 to Hull. Arguably it should have been a 3-1 win to the Reds but that pesky rule of you have to put the ball in the other teams goal in order for you to score meant the own goals went against Liverpool.

7-0 to Celtic now. I feel sorry for Hearts… but I’m sure that will pass.

Juventus are back on top of the Serie A table. Which will no doubt please certain members of the Italian “waste management” industry.

Goal of the Week – I’m gonna put in one from the match I watched whilst I wrote this – Mikael Lustig’s brilliant shot that put us 5-0 up! The match finished 7-0 by the way.
