Football Round-Up (Week 24)

As expected, the league game against Fulham proved to be of a far more difficult nature than the FA Cup walkover the previous weak. The fact that Manchester United dominated possession and created numerous chances belies the truth that Fulham … Continue reading

Football Round-Up (EPL Week 15)

A big derby win for United, somewhat unexpected, but one that leaves them in a dominant position as we head towards Christmas. Being top of the table as the year comes to an end is always a plus, and United … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Barcelona (CPL Final)

We will never beat Barcelona. They can be beaten. But not by us. Teams like Mourinho’s Inter and his Real Madrid (if they had been a bit luckier in some departments) are capable of it. They are not invincible. But … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Man City (FA Cup)

Dissapointing, in several ways. It was even enough affair for most of the match, and we had our chances. But City got the break they needed, the United defence varying between good and bad all game. Toure took his effort … Continue reading
