Premier League Odds and Sods 23 March 2008

Manchester United 3 – Liverpool 0: The scoreline was unfair, United should have won by more.  Rooney and Ronaldo combined for five fluffed chances.  Captain Stevie disappeared twice for the Reds.  First, when he decided to stop running and not defend on the Wes Brown goal.  Second, when he failed […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 17 March 2008

Derby 0 – Manchester United 1 This match epitomizes the season for both clubs.  Derby worked but weren’t quite good enough.  United’s only enemy was their own cuteness.  Ronaldo should have scored at least three, or more according to his own verbal tally. Birmingham 1 – Newcastle 1 The result […]

Champions League Quarterfinal Draw Fixed?

A message posted in the Liverpool FC forum on the Liverpool Echo’s website has sparked speculation about a fixing of Friday’s Champions League draw in Nyon. The post, received at 10:28 AM (90 min prior to the draw) read as follows. “RUMOUR going around the draw has been leaked . […]

UEFA Cup Roundup and Quarter Final Predictions

From ChampionsLeagueTalk.com Benfica’s struggles continued as they failed to make any impression in Spain, as Getafe progressed to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup with a 1-0 (Agg. 3-1) win thanks to Albin’s gorgeous lob. Getafe’s reward is a quarter-final matchup against my favourites to win FC Bayern Munich. Bayern […]

Liverpool Through to Quarterfinals, Neutrals Cringe

Everyone was crying after this match.  Merseyside denizens shed tears of joy.  The Nerrazzuri cried into their cappuccinos.  Neutrals bellowed in agony at having been forced to watch the full ninety minutes.  But, for better or for worse, Liverpool is through to the Champions League quarterfinals defeating Inter Milan 3-0 […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 25 Feb 2008

Arsenal 2- Birmingham 2 Eduardo’s injury – a horrific broken leg – stole the headlines.   But, it did not decisively affect the outcome.  Luck controlled much of it.  Birmingham capitalized upon one free kick – a questionable call – and one penalty – a blatantly wrong call.  Fabregas had two […]

Effective Magic is Transcendent Nature

They were surprise shocks felt around the world, or so much of the media would have you believe.  Vultures scrupulously circled a cavernous Anfield as the Scouse nation struggled to surmount the sickly hangover of a late Liverpool crumble.  Ferguson’s men shattered Arsenal’s fragile psyche, leaving them fighting to keep […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 12 Feb 2008

It was night of black armbands and barren kits in Manchester, which only served to emphasize the sponsorship everywhere else as Man City shocked Man United 2-1 at Old Trafford.  It is no coincidence that most of Man U’s losses come without Wayne Rooney on the pitch.  Ronaldo can score […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 4 Feb 2008

After this weekend a Google search for “Sven” and “Up the Arse” won’t lead you astray as Arsenal defeated Manchester City 3-1 away from home to move to the top of the table. Adebayor dropped a deuce, scoring in his eighth straight match. Eduardo also controlled a ball magnificently with […]

Road to Wembley: FA Cup Third Round Replays

A big day of FA Cup action and the team I’ve been following for this round, League Two strugglers Bury, pulled off a big upset by knocking out Championship side Norwich City with a 2-1 win in their 3rd round replay at Gigg Lane. The win sets up a fourth […]

Arabian Nights at Anfield?

Tom and George’s excellent adventure may come to an end, according to The Observer, as Liverpool owners Hicks and Gillett have not been able to transfer their 350m GBP of debt onto the club.  Should they not meet a Feburary deadline, the duo would likely accept a 500m GBP bid […]

Transfer window update: Shine on you crazy diamond

The transfer window activity had been quite up to this point and the sacking of Sam Allardyce had been the big story. However, with the Anelka move to Chelsea that should kick off some action. Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has revealed he is close to securing a move to Italian […]

Road to Wembley: FA Cup 4th Round Draw

After the topsy-turvy results from the weekend, there are 12 replays to be had before we know the exact picture of the next round. The club I have been following, League Two stugglers Bury, is involved in one such replay against Norwich City, currently 20th in the Championship. Should Bury […]

Road to Wembley: FA Cup 3rd Round Sunday Recap

After Saturday’s shocks, more David-v-Goliath matchups were on tap for Sunday. We start with Luton Town, who ignored the fact that they are 60 league places below Liverpool and forced a very deserved replay at Anfield. This was one of the games I checked out on Sunday and I felt […]

FA Cup Ratings for Premier League Clubs

The FA Cup Third Round relieved us from the dreariness of our normal robust Premier League schedule to enthrall us with live riveting matches like Pompey-Ipswich and grant us the opportunity to pay top dollar to watch Villa-Utd.  All 20 Premier League clubs participated at the weekend and here are […]

Odds and Sods 3 Jan 2008

“There’s only one Titus Bramble” chanted the Wigan faithful, and he made the difference, earning a point in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.  Torres scored the initial goal, which salvaged Liverpool a point, but they have to be extremely disappointed with yet another poor result at “fortress” Anfield, winning only […]

Worst players of the season?

Norman Hubbard of ESPN Soccernet has written an interesting article on who he thinks have been the worst players of the season so far. Personally, most of the article is spot on but there are a few choices that I don’t agree with. Liverpool – Peter Crouch. Has Hubbard not […]

Fact or Trash! Jan 2008 – Round 1

Before I get started, a quick correction on yesterday’s post – QPR’s deals for Connolly and Ephraim are permanent moves and not just loan deals. I also neglected to mention a couple of “future star” signings that were made by Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United as well as deals […]
