- Garth Crooks’s team of the week - Both Manchester Clubs produced impressive displays to keep up the pressure on Chelsea, who put four past Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Liverpool earned their first home league win of the season while Chris Hughton’s Norwich provided the surprise result of the week by beating Arsenal… (BBC Sport) - Fenway-Style Makeover Would Befit a Soccer Landmark - Two years to the day since Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool, the Premier League club said Monday that it would proceed with plans to renovate Anfield rather than build a 60,000-capacity stadium in neighboring Stanley Park at an estimated cost of £300 million ($482 million)… (The New York Times) - Wayne Rooney: Has he fulfilled his potential? - At the time, the primary significance of Everton’s winning goal against Arsenal on 19 October 2002 seemed to be the end of the Gunners’ 30-match unbeaten run. Of course, the fact that Wayne Rooney had just become the youngest goalscorer in Premier League history was more than noteworthy – but it needed the comments of Arsene Wenger to put the 16-year-old’s 25-yard curling strike into context… (BBC Sport) - Raheem Sterling legend grows with Liverpool winner against Reading - Brendan Rodgers believes that hunger will determine whether Raheem Sterling is a star of the future at Liverpool or merely a passing comet. At the end of a week in which Liverpool declared their intention to stay at Anfield, the teenager’s appetite suggests they have something to build on… (The Guardian)  - Sunderland lack the guile to capitalise on Newcastle United’s 10 men - A fiercely contested Tyne-Wear derby was never likely to produce a particularly strategic contest. This was more a midfield scrap, with a red card almost inevitable. In the end Sunderland’s performance was an example of how not to play against 10 men, and they were fortunate to escape with a point… (Michael Cox – The Guardian) - Chelsea’s revolution gathers pace in style - Chelsea did not exactly bury bad news with a very good day at Tottenham, but behind the many unwanted headlines there is much that deserves admiration as a revolution gathers pace. Roberto di Matteo’s side arrived at White Hart Lane as Premier League leaders but, as seemingly happens with monotonous regularity, this status was not top of the Chelsea agenda… (Phil McNulty’s Blog – BBC Sport) - Hughes gets point to build on - Before this match against an impressive Everton, it was anticipated that this could be the end of Mark Hughes’ time at QPR. Instead, after a creditable draw in which his side could well have finally won a game for the first time this season, the manager can walk away making a reasonable argument that this could well be the start of something better… (ESPN Soccernet) - [Video] Thuggish Leeds Fan Attacks Sheffield Wednesday ‘Keeper Chris Kirkland - Grim scenes in the Championship last night, where Sheffield Wednesday ‘keeper Chris Kirkland was attacked in his goalmouth when a grunting Leeds fan escaped from his enclosure following Michael Tonge’s 77th-minute equaliser and shoved the former Liverpool stopper to the floor… (Who ate all the pies) - Americans Abroad: Weekend Rewind - After spending more than a month and a half on the sidelines, Tim Ream returned to Bolton Wanderers’ starting lineup in the first game under interim manager Jimmy Phillips. But Ream surely did not put forth the type of comeback game he would have wanted… (Soccer by Ives) - U.S.’s split personality: strong at home, fragile on road - In truth, the overall performance was industrious and well-intentioned as opposed to inventive and sharp-edged. An emotionally drained Klinsmann acknowledged this after watching his team suffer through a numbing number of defensive lapses… (ESPN Soccernet)
