EEE & MMM – I, for one, welcome our Manc overlords

Manchester United and City have combined for 25 goals in three games to open the season, including 8 and 5 yesterday, respectively.  By my calculation, that's more than ⅓rd of all goals scored this year (72 total).  Edin Dzeko (City) is leading the league with 6 goals, and Rooney is right on his heels with 5.  They would be tied for 4th (Liverpool) and 5th (Chelsea) in the table, respectively, by goals scored.

Meanwhile, at the opposite end of things, Swansea City is still looking for their first ever Premier League goal.  In spite of this, they are still 15th in the table thanks to two 0-0 draws.

  1. KC had a chance to pull within one point of first in the East, leading 2-0 with 20 to go. Goal against, Bunbury red card, Goal against, Goal against. It was ugly.

    Sunderland can't score. Gyan looks a little lost right now. They keep getting linked to strikers as the transfer window closes. We'll see.

  2. The Manchester teams are only scoring this many goals by beating up on teams like Tottenham and Arsenal. Let's see them do this against table topping teams like Wolves and Newcastle.
