THE GOOD

Chris Hughton


A fantastic night for Hughton personally and for his Newcastle side. It is very rare a team goes to Stamford Bridge, wins and scores 4 in the process. Doing a fantastic job at Newcastle and has really taken the opportunity since he was made caretaker manager last season.

Kevin Doyle


Got on the scoresheet twice for Wolves in a game that was looking like being a banana skin again Notts County. Doyle was his usual admirable self and was a class above everyone on the pitch. Turning into one of the Premierships better strikers

Kevin Thornton


A great night for Thornton as little Northampton of League 2 put out the mighty Liverpool. After looking like a great talent in his young years, the Drogheda native has struggled somewhat in recent years. Will delighted with his display last night and will hope that Northampton can keep there excellent giant killing spree going.

Eddie Nolan

Some people might wonder how a defender on a team who lost 5-2 could make it onto this list. However the scoreline really does not paint the full picture. Scunthorpe has 22 efforts on goal in the match. Nolan was excellent throughout and was never shy about getting forward. Even the commentators on Sky Sports were impressed, mentioning many times how good they thought Nolan was playing. Was a player that Trapattoni was very impressed with and was often called into the squad. With more performances like this it wont be long before he is back in the squad and battling for that troubled left back slot.

Anthony Stokes

Two goals in Celtic’s 6 nil rout of Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Settled very well at Celtic and will hope to have caught the eye of Trapattoni with his 3 goals this week.

Darron Gibson

Showed his class with a simply stunning lobbed goal for Man Utd. The goal came at a vital time as United were losing and being overrun. Dependable for the rest of the game.

Seamus Coleman

Took his opportunity well. Given a rare start and scored after 6 minutes. A non stop threat attacking from full back. Still needs to work on elements of his defending and will be disappointed to be both on the losing team, and to have given away a penalty.

THE BAD

Owen Coyle

This might seem harsh but it was a night to forget for Coyle on his return to Turf Moor. Subjected to chants of ‘Judas’ all game long, Coyle will have been very gutted to have lost this game. This shouldn’t take away from the fact that Coyle is doing a great job at Bolton and is still very much in the running to be a future Ireland manager.
