I want to actually get the really sad stuff out of the way because last week of course we had the tragedy of losing a certain diego armando maradona whose canal his hands can now join god and they can play football together A great loss for the footballing world. No doubt at only sixty years. Old and i was stunned. Stunned to learn that at the at the age of only forty two years old We lost papa bouba diop the senegalese Defensive midfielder who you might remember from the world cup in two thousand and two who Put senegal on the map. Not that they weren't on the map beforehand but but for that are just coming in two thousand two was one of these well cups because it was the first truly global will cup because yeah nineteen ninety eight was was was obviously a big world cup and everybody followed it but but two thousand two. It's started to blow up in the united states so it had an exponentially greater viewing audience in nineteen ninety eight and when he defeated champions france because remember france wanted ninety eight in france. Remember this in the opening match of the tour. Two thousand two woke up. It was not only was senegal's first ever Match at the fifa world cup but it It to score against the champions was monumental and a papa job who didn't score a goal. I mean he scored Somewhere around ten or eleven goals senegal when he played for them he had sixty s eleven goals. I'm looking this up. He had eleven goals. Sixty three appearances for senegal sort of defensive midfielder so it wasn't like he would be up front scoring a lot but he certainly scored the goal. That was heard around the world in two thousand two then played with fulham played at portsmouth. Play to the west hand Well actually going back with played with Played with fulham portsmouth. West ham birmingham city. Athens retired in two thousand thirteen. Very very sad to lose such a young man And it was being reported that he had ls which is lou gehrig's disease and very sad. Anyhow we mourn the passing of papa bouba diop too. Many football ingrates We're losing him and it's very sad all right Let's let's put the memory of Papa bouba diop behind us and move onto the premier league. And i scratch my head quite frankly because as i mentioned in the open if i told you that ten matches we would be in this crazy situation on the table by the way. We'll talk about the results over the weekend for fulham. And you know full in papa. Bouba diop former team They got a huge win over leicester city today on monday. Which was nobody had figured that one coming and just to give you an idea. And we're gonna drill. I was hoping to do this in order. But i'm a little bit scattered rain. You bet fulham to beat leicester king power. It paid plus five hundred twenty. Think about that for a minute. That is a long shot. A good match but here we are now ten matches in. Excuse me a little bit. Over twenty five percent tottenham hotspur and top livable second chelsea and less rounding out the top four now talk livable tied on points taught them have a something that has been dogging liverpool seeming a year-over-year a vastly superior goal difference Chelsea just a couple of points behind less behind them less have lost two in a row. What was interesting. This week was basically none of the top. Four teams got a win which is absolutely weird. Right i mean none of the top. Four gotta win tottenham through chelsea liverpool brighton. We could talk about that match chelsea taught. I would definitely want to talk about that match. And of course. Let's losing to full of a west ham united. How about that. David moyes on his way up. Move it on up now. Fifth fifth spot the table tied with southampton and wolves who had a big win as well southampton coming off a loss to man united Which took some very late antics from essen cavani to get the point for man united. He's still don't look good to me. Look there are a number of story lines that are fascinating in the premier league. And i think. I'm probably getting very close to running out of time in this segment and i want to get to them when we come back off.

Coming up next
