21st October 2014

After the international break football certainly was back with a bang in the Premier League.

Referee John Moss was keen to get back into penalty giving, amazingly pointing to the spot four times during Man City's victory over Spurs at the Etihad. He was correct on two on them as well. Frank Lampard cleverly saw the opportunity to tumble and another was awarded for a foul outside the penalty area. Credit to the official though for picking up on the cynical shirt pull when awarding the last spot kick and also for dishing out a red card in the process.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wasn't happy - nothing new there then - with Hull City's second goal at the Emirates. He had good reason as well as Flamini was clearly hauled out of the way in Diame's run into the penalty area to put the Tigers into the lead.

Sunderland were absolutely embarrassed in the hammering at St Mary's going behind initially to the best oggy ever. Stand up Mr Vergini - hilarious! But might the outcome have been different at 2-0 if Saints had been reduced to ten men and the Mackems have been awarded a penalty?

Fletcher was clattered by Fraser Forster but ref Andre Marriner failed to penalise the Saints keeper. We'll never know but it might have at least not have been EIGHT!!

At St James' Park Leicester City's Liam Moore paid tribute to the Magpies' Stephen Taylor by imitating one of the Geordies infamous pretending the ball hadn't hit his arm routines. Nowhere near as good as the Toon player but still amusing to see him grab his head to try and convince the officials.

Neil Warnock accused referee Craig Pawson of being bullied by Chelsea as the leaders eased to another victory. Certainly John Terry was very fortunate to escape punishment when making a reckless challenge but neither Azpilicueta or Delaney could complain at their red cards.

Entertainment was the order of the day on Sunday. QPR v Liverpool had goals, own goals and excitement and Stoke v Swansea had a game where managers watched different games.

No problems with the Shawcross penalty decision; he's finally got his comeuppance after many games of all in wrestling. Moses dived, he cheated and the ref was conned. The incidents epitomised the cheating and lack of honesty that is prevalent in the modern game.

Have a good week.
