What the fans say...

Fulham 2-1 Aston Villa

Tom Wille: Jimmy Bullard is back! His 86th minute free kick gave the Cottagers their first win since November and more importantly brought them to within two points of getting out of the relegation zone. Roy Hodgson's new look team featuring new signings Leon Andreasen, Brede Hangeland and Erik Nevland showed fight, grit and determination. Needless to say, this win was massive for Fulham and gives them a little hope heading into the last thirteen matches of the season. Hard work, determination and togetherness are attributes that Fulham displayed on Sunday and they will have to continue over the next few months if they want to stave off relegation.

Jerrad Peters: Performances like this are what separate European-bound clubs from mid-table mediocrity. Just two weeks ago, don't forget, Aston Villa earned a well-deserved draw at Anfield and seemed to have momentum as February approached. All that has abandoned them now. No offense to Fulham, but anything less than three points against the bottom quarter of the league is simply unacceptable. Having said that, it was nice to see the returns to fitness of both Jimmy Bullard and Brian McBride.

Blackburn Rovers 0-0 Everton

Alan Griffiths: Another disappointing result, but not as disappointed as the Everton fans must have felt. It used to be said, that women couldn't understand the off side rule, well the current rules must have been contrived to ensure political correctness, because it's now got to a point that men don?t understand the offside rule either. Lady luck must have been looking down on Rovers, as Johnson's goal was disallowed for being offside and his penalty appeal waved aside, after Khizanishvili had clattered in to him. The Everton striker may have paid the price for the number of times that he does go down in the box, for no apparent reason. Although Benni McCarthy won't have endeared himself to the ref either, in claiming for a penalty, after clearly miss kicking the ball and falling over. Ironically these were the most memorable points of another dire home performance by Rovers.

Tony Burns: Everton should have done enough to secure three points regardless of the refereeing against Blackburn - but they certainly weren't helped by some shocking decision by Alan Wiley and his assistants. Yet again, Andy Johnson was denied a clear cut penalty, and anyone with eyes could see that his goal at the end of the game was definately onside - apart from Mark Hughes, Alan Wiley and the linesman of course. Hughes even complained that Blackburn should have had a penalty after McCarthy fell over in the box, but didn't comment on Everton's stonewall penalty and the fact that David Dunne should have been sent off in the first half! To be fair, Mikel Arteta was also lucky to stay on the pitch towards the end, in an entertaining game that the Blues dominated and should have won.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Manchester United

Colin McCullough: Spurs were literally seconds away from the victory over Man Utd that would have crowned the White Hart Lane debuts of Jonathan Woodgate and Alan Hutton. For once Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov were eclipsed by the outstanding performances of these two new signings, along with the midfield four of Malbranque, Huddlestone, Jenas and Lennon. With the defence tightened up (and to be strengthened further once King and Bale return), Spurs are now a match for any team in the Premier League.

Charlie Olsen, Soccernet Reader: Thank goodness for Michael Dawson! Not only did he help us through in the FA Cup the other week but he turned the ball into his own goal, admittedly under extreme pressure from Carlos Tevez, to score a last minute equaliser at the weekend to secure a valuable point for United. Jermaine Jenas' may have handled the ball for Berbatov's opening goal but in the end we were delighted to grab a draw in the race for the title after a tired showing from the Red Devils.

Manchester City 1-3 Arsenal

Darren Pepper, Soccernet Reader: This was Man City's first home league defeat of the season and it was a dire performance that highlighted the gulf in class we still have to bridge. I'm not sure that Benjani is the answer to our problems in front of goal but he has to be better than the shower we have at the moment. There is no embarrassment in losing to Arsenal but the manner of the performance even enraged ultra-calm Sven-Goran Eriksson. Must do better!

David Young: Arsenal beat Man City in convincing style at Eastlands on Saturday to go back to the top of the table. The only blemish on an otherwise dominant performance was the mistake by Gael Clichy that led to City's goal. Aside from that, Jens Lehmann barely had a save to make. Arsenal's man of the moment, Emmanuel Adebayor notched up another two goals and has an unstoppable air about him every time he steps on the pitch right now. In between, Eduardo scored with an expertly executed bicycle-kick which further enhanced his reputation as a bone fide 'fox in the box'. With United and Chelsea dropping points at Spurs and Portsmouth, it was a very satisfying weekend for the Gunners.

Wigan Athletic 1-0 West Ham United

Liam O'Connor A win on the worst pitch Alan Curbishley had ever seen saw Wigan claim a vital win to push them out of the relegation zone, in a week where other teams around them picked up points! A fantastic header by Kevin Kilbane, which was more out of Zidane's locker than his own saw Wigan take the three points, and although West Ham never troubled our back line Wigan prodoced a performance which deserved their win.

Billy Blagg: On a bog of a pitch that is 'a disgrace to the Premiership' (TM Patent Pending), West Ham slumped to a galling defeat on a ground where they have never lost. The fact that Wigan are struggling and the Hammers were fresh from a confidence building mid-week win over Liverpool made this loss pretty hard to take. Worse though; the Hammers got what they deserved, and were lucky the margin was not larger.

Birmingham City 1-1 Derby County

Dan Hobbs: Derby at home: The nearest you can get to a guarantee of three points. Yet, just as we had done at Arsenal, there was an unexpected equaliser for the away side. After exposing Derby's ineptitude time and again but failing to get the killer second goal, we knew it was coming. Something Steve Bruce was good at was gaining the focus of the players for when we had important games in the 'mini-league' we're in at the bottom; thus far McLeish has got us playing well for little reward against the big boys, but poorly against our fellow strugglers. These games are where our fate will be sealed. As for Gary O'Connor, what's the point?

David Luckhurst, Soccernet reader: Emanuel Villa scored his first goal for Derby to rescue a 1-1 draw and plunge Birmingham deep into relegation trouble. Two draws amounts to run of form for the Rams and Argentinian striker Villa, signed from Mexican side UAG Tecos last month, looks agood buy. He headed home a cross from Dean Leacock with only a minute remaining - it is all coming together a little too late.

Portsmouth 1-1 Chelsea

Scott McLachlan: A rip-roaring game between Pompey and Chelsea produced the former's first point against the Londoners. With the arrival of Jermain Defoe bolstering Pompey's attack and a new look formation that utilised Niko Krancjar behind the front two and the brilliant Diarra (with all the fuss about Defoe, an absolute steal for just £5 million from Arsenal) pulling the strings from deeper, Pompey could, and probably should, have won. Europe is a real possiblity for Harry Redknapp's Blue and White Army with a much stronger squad than started the campaign.

Correspondent Wanted: Chelsea's nine match winning streak came to an an end at Pompey, after taking only a point at Fratton Park. It is always a tough match on the fixture list this but we looked the better side and Anelka's goal was fully deserved. Unfortunately, Jermain Defoe continued his run of scoring a goal on debut for every one of his new clubs and that mean't the points were shared. Having said that it was still a good result - many a side will lose here.

Reading 0-2 Bolton Wanderers

Paula Marcus: Okay I am officailly worried now. These are the games we really have to win - at home to a fellow relegation contender (it hurts to admit it). Reading have now lost six games in row and that is a worse record than bottom of the table Derby County. Things must change, and quickly, after this international break or we are going down with the Rams.

James McCann, Soccernet Reader: Bolton won away in the Premier League for the first time this season and moved up to 13th to gain some breathing space in the battle against relegation. Goals from Kevin Nolan and Heidar Helguson allowed Gary Megson's side to bank a precious 2-0 win. The comforting aspect of the game is we can play much better, yet we still got the much needed three points.

Liverpool 3-0 Sunderland

Kevin Brodie: Liverpool finally got three points, our first three points since a last gasp victory on Boxing Day against Derby County. It was great to see Crouch given the opportunity to earn his place with Kuyt finally going to the bench. It was also nice to see Riise and Kewell not on the bench as their performances have been very poor of late. Overall we deserved the three points and hopefully this result will do us good. My man of the match was Mascherano closely followed by Hyypia. The best decision of the match was to take off Aurelio at halftime who was very poor yet again.

Peter Osbourne: No real surprises, our away form continues, however I have to say at half-time I was optomistic of sneaking a point. Unfortunately their class showed in the second-half and one is left asking the question, is it worth buying four players at £5million each, or one at £20million. If the one at £20million is Torres then quite simply the answer is buy one. The score flattered them a little although we simply were not worth a point. Lets hope our £4-5 million signings stay or indeed get fit and we will hopefully win our own little battle without the likes of Liverpool being involved.

Newcastle United 1-1 Middlesbrough

Correspondent Wanted: The goal we all wanted finally came four games into Keegan's reign at Newcastle but unfortunatley it was only enough to get a draw in the Tyne-Tees derby. Michael Owen scored it and had another chalked off for a non-existent foul on the keeper so we really should have won the match. However, the signs are still positive with a goal, a point and Owen finally finding his scoring boots.

Rupert Hungin, Soccernet Reader: Such is Boro's form at the moment that I really expected us to win this derby. Having said that, a point at St James' is a great result - especially as Schwarzer handed Owen with a goal that was luckily ruled out for a foul. The defence looks solid, the midfield dominant and with £12m Alves and the returning Mido up front we may soon have a cutting edge as well.
