Five Things I Have Learnt From Football This Week

Chris RowlandsCorrespondent IJanuary 16, 2009

Welcome to what will hopefully become a weekly feature here on Bleacher Report! The opinion of an English teenager is important for all of us, so it seems only fair that I tell you five things that have piqued my interest this week, from the world of Football.

1. Liverpool keeping it interesting.

It may be bias, but I think Liverpool still have hope, in terms of winning the EPL. I can only hope the draws to Fulham and Stoke were a deliberate tactic from Rafa Benitez, to make the title race more interesting. At the moment it really does look like Manchester United will run away with the title.

2. Fulham, what are you doing here?

Roy Hodgson seems to have done a good job at Fulham, I was never expecting to see them ninth in the league with a win to their name! They even beat Arsenal, although quite a few teams have done that this season.

3. Ronaldo, World Player of the Year.

Congratulations to him, although it seems the people judging have forgotten what a mediocre Autumn and Winter he has had. Still, he is a very, very good player. Unfortunately, that sentence would probably look better if "annoying person" replaced "good player"

4. Who on earth will be relegated?

It's quite tight this year, in case you somehow didn't know. I was looking forward to seeing Newcastle and Tottenham in the Championship, but hey, we all have to start somewhere.

5. Kaka would be insane to accept 500K a week.

The rest of the team would alienate him, and this would throw the whole financial system into disarray. Players will want to earn as much as him, and no club could afford 11 players on anything over 150K a week, let alone 500K.

I know a lot of you guys out there like your Football, so: discuss!
