EEE & MMM – A Manchester Team Drops Points

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.
