Bolton v Man City | Winger Comparison

Bolton v Man City | Winger Comparison

We may be just a single game into the 2011/12 season yet this has not stopped some billing Sunday's clash at The Reebox as a 'top of the table' one. Both Bolton and Manchester City are of course perched first and second in the table by virtue of impressive 4-0 victories over promoted sides QPR and Swansea respectively, and will go into the game full of confidence.

Sunderland v Newcastle | Preview

It’s the fixture that all Newcastle and Sunderland fans look for as soon as the fixtures are announced and it’s the one fixture that the fans are excited about, yet fear and dread of the thought of losing to the enemy. Last season, we drew 1-1 at the Stadium of Light, with Gyan scoring a late equaliser to cancel out Kevin Nolan’s opening goal.  Back in October, Sunderland endured a Halloween nightmare at St James’ Park – suffering a 5-1 …

2010/11 | Manchester United Vs WBA

Ahead of this seasons opening match, away to WBA, Manchester United will no doubt be reminded that despite a vast difference in pedigree the upstart Baggies proved a thorn in the side.  In the Premier League last season West Bromwich Albion cause The Reds as many problems as any other team, earning a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and narrowly losing the corresponding fixture at The Hawthorns 1-2 where only a Peter Odemwingie missed penalty saved United's blushes and earned …
