Zarate's Brace Lifts Birmingham

I returned home just in time to catch some live EPL matches. Only thing was I had to decide whether to watch the Bolton/Arsenal game or the Birmingham/Man City. Of course I had to choose the latter, much more so after realizing that Mauro ZARATE was in the starting line up.
What a game it was for him. Not only that he manages to prove that he can play in the Premiership but also his brace against the blue half of Manchester helps his club to move further away from the relegation zone.
The first from he calmly lobbed the ball over into the corner of the nest and second was a drilled low short from 15 yards out. With this double strike, ZARATE has taken his tally to three goals in the last two games.

While at the top of the league, the OTHER Manchester, United has strengthened its lead to six points after a 4-0 demolishing of the OTHER team from Birmingham, Aston Villa that is. (what a coincident!!!)

Carlos TEVEZ put United 2-0 up in the 33rd minute with a beautiful header after receiving a cross from RONALDO.

On the saddest part of Saturday was despite two goals from Emanuel VILLA against Fulahm, it is confirm that Derby will be relegated back into Division One.

VILLA was the real fighter here for the Rams but it was to little to late even when he first arrived at Pride Park. His first was in the 10th minute to give Derby in the lead while his second was an equalizer in the 80th minute.

Meanwhile in Italy, Inter maintain their lead at the top of the table despite drawing 1-1 with Lazio, as Roma drew 1-1 with Cagliari.
Hernan CRESPO scored in the 11th minute. Javier ZANETTI and Nicolas BURDISSO were also starters.
Fernando CAVENAGHI also had his own brace when Bordeaux came from behind to defeat Nancy 2-1. His first goal was a header in the 53rd minute and the second from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute.

It was a super-saturday for a lot of Argies in Europe!

I just want to point out that CRESPO reached a milestone with his goal against Lazio. He has now scored 300 goals in his career!

Amazing feat for a guy that can find the back of the net playing in any club in the World.

Credit where it's due. VAMOS HERNAN!
