The season so far...

As the Premier League hits the 10 game mark it's all shaping up rather nicely (just like a few of the players Movember attempts). Although the season hasn't got this far without a few surprises - most notably the amount of times Ashley Young has dived and been awarded penalties!

The performance from Arsène Wengers Arsenal team has been nothing short of outstanding. They deservedly sit top of the table, although Arsenal fans know it can all change in a matter of weeks.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs have also made a steady start to the 2013/2014 campaign and you would expect this to continue with the quality that their teams possess.

Manchester City sit 5th and perhaps haven't had the strong start they wanted, although a new manager and several big signings will take time to gel, something Marouane Fellaini has been unable to do at their rivals Manchester United. David Moyes team lie in 8th place and Everton fans would be delighted if they finish above, they currently sit in 7th. The surprise package in the top 6 is Southampton who have made a cracking start to the season and look like they will give any team a run for their money.

Mid table is pretty much as expected with no real surprises here. The bottom 3 consist of Norwich, Sunderland and Crystal Palace. However if Van Wolfswinkel starts scoring (8 hours and counting...) and Gus Poyet gets the best from his players then I believe they will be safe. As for Crystal Palace I really can't see a hope in hell. No offence Palace fans but not only have your team been below par, your board have also got rid of arguably the most entertaining football manager in the modern era - Mr Ian Holloway. A few of his famous quotes include:

"I accepted the Football Association’s charge of improper conduct and paid a £2,000 fine. In fact, my behaviour cost me a grand total of £2,012 — because I also had to pay a £12 ‘fine’ to my wife Kim after initially telling her that I hadn’t sworn at the ref."

"He [Cristiano Ronaldo) is six foot something, fit as a flea, good looking – he’s got to have something wrong with him. Hopefully he’s hung like a hamster – That would make us all feel better. Having said that, me missus has got a pet hamster at home, and his cock’s massive"

"To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi"
