Now in 3D: Sauce, Shrek, clowns & a classic

This week is all about the top of the table; Chelsea stay in the lead after an edgy 2-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Future former England captain and Daddies sauce Dad Of The Year (stop the sniggering at the back) John Terry saved the Blues ’ blushes, his late winner meaning they took three points back to the Bridge (defiantly a name he’ll be sick of hearing over the next few weeks).

To the main event though, PUT YOUR 3D GLASSES ON NOW!

This weekend, Arsenal vs Manchester United became the first-ever sporting fixture screened in 3D.

OK, some people have seen Wayne Rooney in 3D before: Shrek 3 was a huge box office success.

But to others it was a chance to witness some real up-close action – the Fergie hairdryer treatment, or Gary Neville warming up.

The technology was reported to be so impressive that even Arsene Wenger admitted to spotting a foul committed by his team.

The back pages have decided that Arsenal’s title challenge is back off again after they forgot to turn up for the first half of their clash with Manchester United, in what turned out to be a fairly easy 3-1 win for the away side.

How times have changed in North London over the season; in September we were all laughing at Tottenham keeper Heurelho Gomes doing his best to avoid the ball, and hearing how Arsenal’s Manuel Almunia was Fabio Capello’s answer to his goalkeeping dilemma.

These days, Gomes is looking something like the keeper he was made out to be, while Almunia is busy palming balls into his own goal.

If he’s determined to play at international level, it’s time he looked into his family tree for an Andorran relative. (No disrespect to Andorra).

Poor-man’s-Ronaldo Nani put in his best display for quite some time, creating the first for Almunia and laying on the second for Rooney to score his hotly-anticipated 100th Premier League goal.

It all seemed too easy for Fergie’s men, and replacements were sent on to keep the first teamers fresh.

Late in the second half, £30 million sub Dimitar Berbatov was given a run-out, although Ferguson obviously wasn’t 100 percent certain of the win as Michael Own was kept on the bench.

This week we recreate James McFadden’s unstoppable winner for Scotland against France in the Parc des Princes during World Cup qualifying.

Unfortunately they won’t be in South Africa this summer, but their fans will be giving Algeria, Slovenia, and the USA their full support.

Enjoy it don_cule.
