Rescinded Red

Oh the media monkeys and their junket junkies will invite you to their plastic pantomime. Throw their invites away.

Sunday Premier League Results 19 October 2008

Stoke City 2 – Tottenham 1: Spurs received more red cards (two) and conceded more penalties (two) than they scored goals (one).  Euro stars Luka Modric and Roman Pavyluchenko were woeful.  Are they still too good for relegation?

Hull City 1 – West Ham 0: With five wins in eight matches, Hull transcended the underdog label.  They now sit third in the Premier League, while playing persistent positive football.  They are now everyone’s second side.

More English Match-Fixing Investigations

In the wake of the Norwich v. Derby investigation, the City of London’s fraud unit is exploring three other English matches for match-fixing, based on suspicious Asian betting patterns.

The specific matches have not been released, but they are reported to be Premier League matches from 2001 and 2007, as well as a League Two match from 2006.

The fraud unit will evaluate the evidence, before launching a full investigation.
