Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: Week 2

Well, I successfully managed to remind myself that I am attempting to add a weekly post to this blog.  If you enjoyed the opening week of the Premier League season, Week 2 was equally exciting. With a set of games mid-week, a few more upsets, and some more stunning performances, English football continues to impress the masses. Let’s take a look at who’s Hot this week…

HOT: Jermain Defoe Jermain-Defoe

With 4 goals in 2 games, Defoe is once again making fans fall to their knees and shout “we’re not worthy!”, especially now that Spurs are at the top of the table. Harry Redknapp brought the striker over from Portsmouth last season, and he has shown continued offensive prowess when in the lineup. If Defoe can remain healthy, Tottenham supporters can rest assured they will remain near the top of the table.

Honarable mentions: Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Wayne Rooney (Man United), Diaby (Arsenal)

NOT: Portsmouth Defense pompey

With the departures of Glen Johnson, Sol Campbell, and a slew of others, Portsmouth defenders have been unable to keep the ball out of the back of their own net. Pompey’s defensive woes were highlighted in a weekend thrashing at the hands of Arsenal (L 1-4). With Sulaiman Al-Fahim’s acquisition of the club (finally!!), Pompey now has the funding to buy a few much needed players before the transfer window closes… but will it be enough to avoid the drop?

Dishonorable mentions: Louis Saha (Everton), Martin Skrtel (Liverpool), Anderson (Man United)

Be sure to come on back next week for more “Who’s HOT and Who’s NOT”…
