The baby-faced assassin continues to show two fingers (not that he would, he seems too nice) to those that wondered why Sir Alex Ferguson kept him for all these years. Although he doesn't rack up the minutes on the pitch, nobody sniffs out goals better than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He gets his first goals at Old Trafford since April 2003 to give Man Utd a share of the Premiership lead.

If you were watching Pompey at Spurs today, was it odd that the announcers didn't seem to notice Danny Murphy's early goal within the first minute? Perhaps they thought it was coming back, or just didn't care, but David James fumbled the ball to allow Danny Murphy a ridiculously easy goal. And a quite a bit of controversey sees Spurs end a horrid start to their season. Harry Redknapp's pissed.

Alan Pardew has got to be reeling a bit, as he saw his West Ham side lose its fifth straight, this time losing 0-1 to Reading at Upton Park. Maybe we'll get to see Scolari coach in England after all. Talk about going from the highest of highs (FA Cup Final, entry into Europe, the signing of Mascherano and Tevez) to whatever you call West Ham now. Bet they never saw this happening on transfer day, and oh yeah, there may be a takeover.

Blackburn Rovers are beginning to show the quality that kept them mid-table and threatening for Europe last season. Well, they showed just enough to squeak by a Wigan team that deserved more than the bagel they got.
