Increasingly Clear That No One Wants Top Billing

bellamyWith an opportunity to retake the top spot in the English Premier League, second place Chelsea were forced to rely on Nicolas Anelka’s 51st minute goal just to equalize with lowly West Ham United, 1-1. Fiery Craig Bellamy scored the Hammers’ goal in the first half, forcing the Blues to play catch-up. Sharing the points instead of taking three points in a home match against a clearly inferior opponent keeps Chelsea a point behind Liverpool, who also drew this weekend. West Ham stay afloat, just above relegation.

In today’s other match, Portsmouth wasted a nice opportunity to keep up with Everton and Hull City by losing 3-0 out at Fratton Park to Newcastle. Michael Owen, Obafemi Martins and Danny Guthrie each scored in the second half to power Toon out of the relegation zone and up ahead of Tottenham into fourteenth position. Pompey now sit alone in eighth place.

    Bellamy couldn’t get a call that entire game. Got a card and then never drew a foul on Chelsea even though their defense was basically tackling him. Poorly officiated game all the way through.

    Similarly poor officiating in the college championship game. unc proved yet again in yet another sport that they are dirty bitches. But they lost so that was nice.

    Bellamy is a huge prick, which is probably why he can’t get calls. But he has a rocket whenever he can get a clean shot off. I didn’t watch it, was in Charlotte shopping, but is it just me or has Chelsea’s home dominance been completely erased?

    He’s also Welsh (Bellamy) which can’t help him at all (though so is Ryan Giggs).
