FOOTBALL - NEWS RESULTS HEADER a

Fallout continues from another big weekend of football, and we’re given a full midweek round of four divisions to recover with. Some of the sins can be quickly forgiven, whilst a small bad run can become a major blip with another loss.

The biggest fallout come from an unlikely location in Leicester, where manager Nigel Pearson’s attempt to help Crystal Palace’s McCarthy up from the ground by his neck, and then hold onto him long enough to give him the night’s lottery numbers has increased interest in a team whose last place usually gets an occasional small paragraph in a newspaper.

Pearson was apparently sacked and reinstated after the Thai owners took advice from Leeds United’s owner Cellini on how to deal with managers, since Cellini is currently on leave from Leeds after being suspended by the Football League for questionable practices in Italy.

The two big EPL derbies on the weekend were poles apart in entertainment. The pride of Liverpool will take another episode to decide after a yawn inducing 0-0 draw. Thank goodness for the ability to record on Foxtel so sleep isn’t sacrificed for that one.

Thankfully, in the earlier slot Arsenal’s loss to Spurs was at least entertaining for the neutral and Spurs fans. Unfortunately for Harry Kane, he will be the new England football saviour that will be hyped up beyond belief until the pressure to perform drags him down like so many others before him. Let’s not forget that Ipswich Town’s Marcus Stewart has the highest English striker in their first season of promotion. Whatever the hype, it’s still a good news story that a young up and coming Englishman is scoring plenty more than higher paid, higher transferred, lower performing big names.

After Manchester City choked against previously busted arse Hull at home and Chelsea beat Aston Villa, the EPL title race is out to 7 points. But with Yaya Toure due home after the African Cup of Nations victory with Ivory Coast, and new signing Bony too, the title race may not be done and dusted yet.
