    Mourinho wouldn't dare park the bus after the comments he made following the West Ham match... or would he..

    Good weekend of results, and makes the both ends of the table even closer as a result.
    Most entertaining season I can remember in a while.

    No easy games this year. Sunderland could be only the second team since the beginning of the premiership in 1992 to not be relegated after being bottom of the table at Christmas.

    Chelsea did not park the bus, their tactic last night was counterattack, and they were awesome at it.

    Swansea City sacked Laudrup yesterday and more misery for Fulham after 0:1 FA Cup defeat vs league one team ( 23rd ) Sheffield United.They won't sack Meulensteen after just 2 months??? Looking very bleak indeed.

    I think they will. From the reports Fulham were dire.

    Why the demise of Fulham? Not long time ago they finished 8th, 9th and last season still 12th at the end of the season.

    Maybe you should be asking Why the rise of Fulham?

    They are a small club and have no right to be in the Premier League in my opinion. It was only as recently as the 1995/96 season that they were finishing 17/24 in the 4th Division (or Endsleigh league division 3 as it was known back then). It was only the money of Mohammed Al Fayed that saw their rapid rise through the leagues. They will soon be back where they belong.

    I think only Hull City can challenge that for quickest route to the premier league from the foot of the football league (13/24 in the 4th tier in 2002/2003 season!!).

    Maybe i'm just bitter because the massive club i that i follow has been outside of the top flight for 10 years now and the likes of Swansea, Fulham, Hull, Stoke, Norwich and until last season, Wigan dont seem to have any problems getting up and staying there.
