It took a minute for the English Premier League to have its first dope goal of the season; although, Chelsea and its recent Catalonian signing Cesc Fabregas might have a quibble with that statement.
In any case, the first actual awesome goal, in which the actual putting of the ball in the back of the net was particularly sweet, came this morning from West Ham’s Mauro Zarate. Zarate grabbed hold of a deflected shot off the Crystal Palace defense and volleyed the rock first-time past Palace’s goalkeeper Julian Speroni.
West Ham is leading 3-1 at the time of this posting.
