Stoke vs Norwich | Error, no stats available

There are no stats for Norwich, up until last weekend. It’s been that long since they graced the EPL, yet it doesn’t feel like yesterday I was enjoying some Darren Huckerby on Match of the Day. After an opening weekend draw at Wigan, and some exceptional performances in the Championship last season, Norwich look to be more the capable of mounting a challenge to stay up this season. Stoke continue their season after two good results this past week, a …
Man United Vs Spurs | Preview

Man United Vs Spurs | Preview

Old Trafford has been less of a Theatre of Dreams and more of a Ford’s Theatre for Spurs in recent years. Visits in league and cup matches have ended largely the same way and Spurs haven’t won there since 1989. This information is well known by Spurs fans. Recent years have seen generally good performances go unrewarded, but after the 5-0 warm up in Scotland, there is a genuine sense of optimism for the travelling fans this week. Cause for …
Sunderland Vs Newcastle | Who will score?

Sunderland Vs Newcastle | Who will score?

This weekend will see the first North East derby of the season between Newcastle United and Sunderland and both teams will go into it feeling confident after credible draws against potential top4 sides. Sunderland went away to Liverpool and after a first half battering and surviving a missed penalty, a possible red card and a dubiously disallowed goal came back strongly in the second half and were good value for the point they came away with. Newcastle United played out …

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. Historically, City have not fared well at the Reebok, at times struggling for goals, …

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 …

Liverpool take on Arsenal in the early kick-off next Saturday, with all Liverpool fans hoping that The Reds can improve on the last display against Sunderland.  Prior to the game I thought it would be interesting to attempt to assess some areas of Arsenal's attacking style/strategy and some areas that Liverpool should look to exploit.

Liverpool | It’s a new (beach) ball game!

Liverpool | It’s a new (beach) ball game!

Liverpool met Sunderland, last season, against the backdrop of fan protests, towards the owners of the club, and amid an atmosphere of growing unease, and uncertainty, following the appointment of Roy Hodgson.  Fast-forward twelve months and much is different! Following what can only be described as a successful summer of transfer dealings, optimism is even higher amongst Liverpool fans than it was when King Kenny was appointed back in January.  In addition the clear support, of the manager, provided by …

Wolves V Blackburn Match Preview

So the new season is upon us at last, and what better way to start it against the team we ended with last season in that memorable 3-2 defeat! Okay, so not everyone likes talking about defeats, but im sure most Wolves fans will feel as though that last day defeat was a win because it means we are here for a third consecutive season. But what of our record against Blackburn Rovers? In the Premier league our record against Rovers …
