It was a sickening weekend: Arsenal scored an avalanche of own goals, Chelsea beat us undeservedly, with plenty of help from Martin Atkinson – really, only our performance at Stamford Bridge put some gloss on this horrible weekend.

Until now. Because no matter how bad your day is, you can count on Liverpool to cheer you up it seems. Beachball goal, injury time goals almost knocking them out of the Champions League, Rafarants – and now the supposed title favourites could not win at home against Birmingham despite referee Peter Walton awarding them a distinctly dodgy penalty.

Oh well. It’s not exactly a miracle that most papers got their title predictions wrong, again. And it’s certainly funny, seeing them battering Liverpool after they hailed them as champions-in-waiting.
