This weekend's the Good, the Bad and the Downright Ugly!

By Paul Frederickson

Another weekend, and if your team played, there was a win, loss or draw to digest, analyse and depending on the result, celebrate.

Too old, too slow, too good! Frank Lampard's hat-trick in Chelsea's 5-1 demolition of Bolton Wanderers must have at least a few critics biting their tongues. Champions are always champions.

This was a very tough call this week. Inter Milan's protestations against the weekend's refereeing in their 3 nil home-loss to Napoli just pips Tottenham's Clive Allen in his rant regarding the lack of a handshake from Arsenal's Arsene Wenger. Wenger's team had just lost a heated derby match against bitter rival Spurs and shook the hands of Harry Redknapp and his assistant. Allen needs to grow up a wee bit!


There is no place in the world for racism. It keeps rearing its head in so many facets of society, and football is no exception. As if losing to Tottenham is not bad enough, Arsenal fans have further disgraced their club with chants against former son, Emmanuel Adebayor. Three people died when gunmen attacked Togo's national team bus in Angola during 2010. Some of the visiting Arsenal fans chanted at Adebayor: "It should have been you." DISGRACEFUL!

Do you agree? What was your weekend's, the Good, Bad and the downright Ugly!
