Arsenal's 1-1 draw in the London derby with Spurs means that it holds on to top spot, but only just. Man Utd is breathing down Arsenal's neck, just a point behind, after a 3-0 crushing of bottom-place West Ham. Meanwhile, Liverpool, once sitting proudly atop the Premiership, suffered the ignominy of a fourth-straight loss, this time to Sunderland. And even worse, a drop to fifth place, one below city rivals, Everton. Everton continued their run of good form with a 2-1 home win over Blackburn, thanks to yet another late Wayne Rooney winner, this Goal of the Week. And, wouldn't you know it, the first Liverpool-Everton derby of the season is this Sunday! More link-itude: (please add yours, too!)

  • All the scores and match reports
  • Table: The top 5 are Arsenal, Man U, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool.
  • Team of the Week: No Liverpool players.
  • Today's game: Leeds vs Bolton. Two teams, one modest, the other just too expensive, struggling to stay in the Premiership. (Live Net radio from Leeds.)
  • Injury list: Sunderland (9), Leeds (7), Arsenal (6). Hey StarFucker, Kewell is still injured!
  • Note: I'm off on vacation the rest of the year so I won't be posting any reports until after the New Year. Have a Merry Christmas and a Sporting New Year!

    btw, SF, I didn't say anything about Liverpool ... because you didn't give me a chance to say ANYTHING! I've told you before, and I'll tell you again, let me post my bloody report before you chime in, you tosser! I'm shaking my fist at you! Shake, shake, shake!

    SF, if you weren't a fellow Liverpool fan, I'd, I'd, I'd ... well, I'd shake my fist at you again! btw, your SpoFi League performance was sub-par this week, huh? Hahahaha.

    hey worldcup, you may want to compose your (more inside) section in Word or something before posting the thread. That way StarFucker won't be able to get a word in edge-wise, and we can end all this needless fist-shaking. **won't somebody think of the children??**

    Sub par? If you consider gaining another 20 or so points on the second place team sub par.... And whats up with Veron? He seems to have picked up his game finally. Seems United are doing better without Keane, just like the Irish National team did. Kewell is not injured, he has some kind of virus or some shit. Its pissing me off, he has been sick since i picked him up!

    So you're saying Kewell has a leg virus? What's that? Hahaha. Oh, and about the subpar comment, it's not like you scored 90 points. Like, umm, some of us. Heh heh heh. Also, you don't just have to beat the second-placed player; there's the other 15 of us that are chasing you, too. If #2 keeps dropping points to you, pretty soon, someone else will replace him. Like, umm, those of us that score 40 more points than you. Heh heh heh.

    Ufez: I can't be bothered. I'd rather get mad at StarFucker. And if you've spent time with SF, you know there's no way to shut him up.

    I will NOT be silenced... I am well aware that the other guys are catching up, but whoever is in second place keeps getting further and further away from me... And Kewell DID play today! And he got 2 assists!! I AM KING OF THE WORLD!
