Football Round-Up (LOI Week Eight, EPL Week 35)

Some really bad football played Saturday night. I kind of wish the sending off didn’t happen, since Shelbourne just packed out their defence for the rest of the game, shut the door. I had a pretty good view of the … Continue reading

The last week of LoI action has come and gone, with only three games to talk about. Dundalk have overcome Waterford over two legs to secure their Premier League status for next year, at least on the pitch. Dundalk weathered … Continue reading

Football 11/12: Gunner Loyalty

There is very little to be said for a team strategy that consists of selling your best players, not replacing them, then leaving your untested youngsters out to dry against the league champions. The utter demolition job of Arsenal by … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Arsenal (away)

Well, when your tactics work 80% of the time, they don’t 20% of the time. Over the last few years, United have always played the same type of game against the Gunners, which is to play deep in defence, let … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Everton (home)

Back from a welcome internet-free Easter break. It was a nail biting game. This, rather than the games against Arsenal and Chelsea, is the kind of game that will ruin a season. Slightly less lucky and United are suddenly closer to … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Arsenal (FA Cup)

Interesting game, one that matches the pattern of the last few years between Manchester United and Arsenal. They play their passing game, press, have most of the possession. We play the defensive minded, counter-attacking game. We win. They lose. I really … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Arsenal

Great performance, maybe the best of the season so far. Got the result and looked good doing it. Park’s goal was an excellent bit of heading and only the heroics of the Londoners keeper kept them from getting embarrassed. Arsenal’s typical … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Wigan

Interesting game. The two red cards, both deserved, didn’t quite finish it as a contest, but from the second half onwards, United never look in trouble. Wigan missed their chances in the first to have a big impact on the game. … Continue reading
