Weekend report

Let's start with The Yak....he looks the business at the moment. I think that's the first perfect hat-trick I've ever seen. One with the left foot, one with the right and header (in one half with no-one else scoring in between). Brilliant stuff. Yakubu Aiyegbeni take a bow.

We are now 10 games unbeaten with 8 wins and 2 draws. This run is bound to come to an end sooner or later but now we have West Ham in the league cup and again in the league days later then what's effectively a friendly against AZ Alkmaar & United away (not holding much hope about getting anything from Old Trafford) before Bolton on Boxing Day. Desperately hoping we can get to the semi-final of the Carling Cup and take 4 points from the two league games . Keep them crossed.

Annoyingly Waterloo made wholesale team changes & contrived to lose against Ealing to crash out of the EDF Energy Trophy. Pity really a cup-run might have been nice.

Echo Report

Ricky Hatton found Floyd Mayweather just too good. Hard work only beat talent when talent doesn't work hard. For all the pre-bout talk of arrogance and complacency Mayweather just out-boxed Ricky. Pity, but ultimately the better boxer won and no-one can complain about it.
