Keep Faith Best Premier League Games So

City v United. The excitement and anticipation prior Martin Fehervary Jersey to kickis enough todrive SkySports Andy Gray into cliche overload.It must be difficult to comprehendhow the fans and players of both sides are feeling. Their nerves were sure to be tested throughout the night, in a red hot derby atmosphere, stirred up further by Sir Alexs comments about Citys past. Tevez was sure to be a story come Thursday morning, whether it be another gesture towards his previous acquaintances or how upon he should celebrate a Citizen goal, be it him or a teammate to steal the glory.Or not. The drab 0-0 draw drove viewers to find the nearest hard surface to wipe the previous 2 hours clean from their memories. An unspectacular rift between Carlos Tevez and Rafael was barely enough to warrant another famous quotation from Grays mouth who had, like all of us quite frankly, been wondering what the wife had been up to since her banishment from the TV roomAs tasty as it got all nightBut fear not as, rather like a football Superman or arevamped Ghost of Football Past, I will ensure that your front doors remain on their hinges andthenew 3D television setscontinueto beyour pride and joyif you are still haunted by the memories. As the Premiership takes breath after its 12th fixture of the season, I provide you with a recollection of the 12best and most shocking games to have been played so far this season, so you can happily keep existing until Saturday. Fear not rich overseas investors, as I prove that our league is worth the money you effortle sly bestow upon each club to import the best and (not) Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey nurture the youth! All I need now is a catchphrase 12. Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea, 7/11/10And what better way to begin than by looking at an encounter between two of the leagues big bo- er, oh. Perhaps not after the Reds disastrous beginning to the campaign under Roy Hodgson. Already under-fire, the dream job in his words looked to have panned out rather like one of Eeyores dreams. No money, no quality inherited and no support,star strikerFernando Torres resembledthe miserable Disney character after losing any argument upon whether heknew how to score anymore andfinding his Liverpool side in amongst the bottom 3 for most of the season. And along came Chelsea, merrilywinning and thwarting anyone in their way with attractive, effective football. Carlo Ancelotti could sense another victim.But football shocks us all sometimes and dont we just love it! That man, Fernando Torres, struck twice in a 2-0 win, following on from teammate Steven Gerrards hat-trick in midweek. 2 glorious first half goals reminded us of the quality the Spaniard po se ses as Chelsea looked a shadow of the team who began the season so strongly.11. Wolves 1-1 Newcastle, 28/8/10Before this season, Mick McCarthys Wolves sidewere being written off prior to a ball touching gra s. So it was a surprise to see them hit the heights of the table at all, albeit after 2 games. McCarthy sensed this altitude would not suit the Midlands team for long so it made sense to instill a battling or a fightingphilosophy upon the players in preparation for the commencing games. Perhaps someone similar at Newcastle had uttered the same words following the Magpies stunning promotion back to the Premier League as this clash featured 12, Nic Dowd Jersey yes 12 yellow cards! Regardle s of the result, which to be honest, many have forgotten by now, you could list any onomatopoeia and have it a sociated with this match it was so brutal. Referee Stuart Atwell more surprisingly even failed to award a penalty for the home side!10. Bolton 2-1 Stoke, 16/10/10Forgetful for 90 minutes but memorable for 5. Especially if your name is Ivan Klasnic. Coming on as a sub, any positive impact on the match is your goal in such a short space of time. You could say that as Klasnic scored the winner 15 minutes after his introduction, swivelling well to grab 3 points from a solid Stoke side. But just 2 minutes later, Klasnic threatened to ruin his day by challenging Dean Whitehead. Thankfully he didnt as his challenge only warranted a caution from ref Warton, a sigh of relief from every Bolton fan welcomed that decision, fearing their newly famed striker would face a suspension. Hmm, maybe Ive spoken too soon. A minute later the same playerbattled Robert Huthfor the ball only to catch the Stoke defender with his arm. Within 3 minutes, the dangerous Croat had scored the winnerand been booked twice with just a single minute left of stoppage time, leaving Klasnic just enough time to nab the warm shower at the Reebok. Genius.9. Liverpool 1-2 Blackpool, Jonas Siegenthaler Jersey 3/10/10Unhappier times at Anfield nowas Hodgsonwas about to delve deep into the biggest relegation battle Liverpool faced in decades. His opposite number for this Sunday fixture however seemed much more content with his sides current position however. Ian Holloway was in dreamland (no its not a sub-region of Pleasure Beach!) as his band of Tangerine sat remarkably in 9th position. Such a start by the minute and proud club would surely be destroyed at Anfield, as itthreatened toat the Emirates. Instead of sending you into a false sense of security and leading you onto believe Liverpool won Ill just inform you now that they didnt. They truly didnt. Blackpool produced a stirring performance and left the famous complex victorious for the first time since 1967. More like an FA Cup shock than a Premiership one, goals from Charlie Adam and Luke Varney ensured a memorable win for the Tangerine Army.8. Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool, 19/9/10Another game featuring the might of Liverpool as their slump makes for the biggest shock in the League Madison Bowey Jersey this year. Hovering just above the bottom 3 for this match, Manchester United could well demolish any optimism of mounting a comeback to the Champions League spaces. Or would the added spice of a Manc-Mersey derbygive the likes of Torres, Carragher and Gerrard fire in their bellies? Momentarily yes as United stormed to a 2-0 lead through a resurgent Dimitar Berbatov either side of half time, the second of which demonstrates how much cla s the Bulgarian does hold when he can be bothered as he used the laws of physics to take a cro s delicatelyon his thigh, slow down Jamie Carraghersreaction (which is po sible Im told) and use the weight of his falling torso to generate power and accuracy to lead the ball into the top corner via the cro sbar. 2-0 game over? How could you even think that? Steven Gerrard popped up with 2 great set-piece goals to equalise and even recreated his famous ki s the camera celebration. Keep that for your mi sus please Stevie!But to steal the limelight and unfortunately for Gerrard, the cameras, was Berbatov again as in typical United fashion he won it late on for
