October 23 – Koeman sacked and Huddersfield Town shock the world!

Oct 23, 2017, 03:45 PM

Well, well, well – what a weekend we've had in the world of football.

It all started on Friday night when #BHAFC travelled up to the London Stadium and ran out 3-0 winners against what seemed to be a very poor #WHUFC side, heaping the pressure on manager Slaven Bilic.

Then in the early kick off on Saturday morning it looked as though they might be another shock when #WatfordFC went 2-1 up against #CFC at Stamford Bridge, but a flurry of late goals saw the blues, somewhat fortunately, run out 4-2 winners.

Then came the big one – an unbeaten #MUFC losing their first game of the season to #HTAFC, who in truth deserved the three points after a poor performance defensively from Jose Mourinho's men.

#MCFC ran out expected winners against #BurnleyFC, who in fairness have started well, but were unable to stop the City train steaming through the Premier League, although only conceding three is probably something to be proud of against Pep's men this year.

Elsewhere there were wins for #NUFC who beat #CPFC 1-0 at St James' Park and keep quietly plodding up the league. #AFCB preventing a gap opening up above them when they beat #SCFC 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium, but unfortunately still find themselves in the relegation zone.

There was a home defeat for #Swans to #LCFC who seemed to benefit from the sacking of Craig Shakespeare and move away from the drop zone, and #SaintsFC managed to overcome a dull #WBAFC side thanks to a moment of brilliance from Bufal.

On Sunday there was plenty of goals as #EFC were convincingly beaten by #AFC – another abject performance from Ronald Koeman's side which ultimately cost the Dutchman his job and was sacked on Monday morning.

That wasn't the end of London's dominance over Merseyside though, as #THFC convincingly beat an #LFC side who ere once again exposed defensively, a problem which they seem to have had for generations.

In the Championship #WWFC march on thanks to a home win against a good #PNEFC side, #LUFC put their recent slump behind them with a very impressive 3-0 win at Ashton Gate, #CCFC heap more misery on Garry Monk and #Boro after a 1-0 win at the Riverside, and #SUFC keep surprising people, and move up to third thanks 1-0 win at home to Reading.

In the lower leagues it's another win for #Shrews and #WAFC in League One who both manage to put some daylight between themselves and #BCAFC, who lost at home, again, this time to #CAFC. In League Two there weren't many goals in the entire division which meant #ASFC were the big winners of the day as they closed the gap on the top two as #LTFC and #Notts could only manage draws.
