Hello guys. It’s a beautiful day today; last weekend was beautiful too. In fact, so much exciting football happened during the weekend that I can’t say them all for fear of bursting into song. However, it is my pleasure to bring to you some of the exciting things that happened during the weekend. Let’s get to it, shall we?
First of all, I want to extend hearty congratulations to al Manchester United fans worldwide. Yesterday, The Red Devils secured their first trophy under Jose Mourinho with a 3-2 victory over Southampton. Once again, Zlatan was the man; the big Swede scored twice, including a sublime free kick, to bring the trophy to the red side of Manchester. All the exciting football they have been playing for a while now finally yielded a trophy. This is a sign of things to come, folks.
In Spain, Barcelona seems to rely more and more on the MSN than ever before. As you know, if any team manages to stifle this trio, Barca is effectively nullified. Well, Atletico Madridcame close to doing just that. If only they had not conceded a last-minute penalty, they could have come away from that fixture with a point. But alas, they gave away a penalty; Lionel Messi scored, and the game ended 2-1.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid survived a huge scare to beat Villareal 3-2. At 56 minutes, they were 2-0 down. You can imagine how scared the Madrid fans were; Barcelona had momentarily climbed to the top of the table. However, Real Madrid has more than just Ronaldo – even if he did score the equalizer. Gareth Bale only just returned from injury; however, he has proved yet again that he is indispensable to the team. Alvaro Morata proved once again that he is The Super Sub; forget Olivier Giroud.
In France, PSG had one of their most memorable nights. Remember the exciting football they played against Barcelona? They did that again against Marseille. In fact, they did it so well that they emerged winners, with a 5-1 score line. Please tell me if this team looks like they miss Zlatan. They do not.
Meanwhile, former Manchester United player Memphis Depay has begun to rediscover the old spark. He scored twice as Lyon beat Metz 5-0. Nice going, Memphis. However, it would have been much more pleasant for him if he had been part of that team that beat Southampton on Sunday.
