Former Red Devil Brings His Team To OT

2 10 2009

Victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium last weekend sent champions Manchester United back to the top of the table and with Chelsea taking on Liverpool on Sunday, they have the chance to consolidate that position with the visit of Sunderland.

Despite failing to really sparkle so far in this campaign Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have won their last eight games in a row thanks largely due to the impressive form of the evergreen Ryan Giggs.

Diaby Strike Gives Champions 3-Points

29 08 2009

Manchester United took all three points in the first ‘Top Four’ clash of the season after a hard-fought win against Arsenal at Old Trafford. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, with Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen, Nicklas Bendtner and Eduardo all on the bench, the first half was a tight, tense affair with both sides playing at pace but unable to create many clear-cut chances.

PREVIEW: United vs. Arsenal

28 08 2009

Arsene Wenger’s side have surprised many of their critics by getting off to a buoyant start with four wins from four games, but a trip to Old Trafford to take on the defending Premier League champions will be seen as the first true test of their credentials.

Sceptics will say that, in sweeping aside the opposition with 15 goals in four games, Arsenal have had a relatively easy ride thus far. They caught Everton in Lescott-induced disarray on the opening day and duly hit them for six, then proved far too good for Celtic over two legs in the Champions League, and encountered only moderate resistance from troubled Portsmouth at the Emirates last weekend. United on their own patch represents a much sterner challenge.

PREVIEW: Wigan vs. United

20 08 2009

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez was making Premier League management seem a doddle, but the mid week 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers has brought an expectant DW crowd back to earth.

The pretty patterns and knitted moves that drove the Aston Villa crowd to rebellion on the opening day of the season instead left the Latics fans tearing their hair out. Possession is king in football, but without a coup de grace, a team has nothing.
