Man Utd | Mid-Season Report | Opta Stats

As we just did with Liverpool, this post is an examination of the state of Manchester United after 19 matches.  For Manchester United this has been another season of slow starts, well, relatively speaking, and coming on strong at Christmas. An uncharacteristic loss to Blackburn notwithstanding, this is a Red Devils side that looks poised to push Manchester City to the finish and make this a two horse race in the spring.  For United it has already been a long season, having …

Ba Ba Demba, see you soon! | Newcastle

So, here we are, halfway through the 2011-12 campaign and sitting pretty in 7th - our best position in the top flight at this stage of the season since 2003/04. A season that started off like a drug-infused Olympic sprinter has fizzled out of late with just 5 points gained from the last 24 available. Flat and uninspired performances against Norwich, Swansea, West Brom and Liverpool have highlighted weakness in the Newcastle ranks but what has been identified more than …

Quantifying Odds of City Winning League

Christmas marks a good time to look over the EPL games this year and look to the future to see how clubs are doing and what the final EPL table may look like. Manchester City goes in to Christmas 2 points clear of United at the top of the table. But what are City's chances of being at the top at the end of the season? Obviously, a lot of things can happen between now and then. The Euro Club …

O'Shea - Mr Reliable? | Stats Profile

[caption id="attachment_7306" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Brown and O'Shea: Winners"][/caption] It has been a slow and frustrating start to the season on Wearside, entering the festive period Sunderland have won just 3 games. Even the most optimistic of Mackems will admit that has not been true to a club hoping to be around the top half of the league. The season has been made even more disappointing by the form of arch rivals Newcastle. Steve Bruces’ signings had looked good in the …
United do enough against QPR | Stats

United do enough against QPR | Stats

Goals from Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick were enough for United to maintain the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, following a comfortable victory over QPR at Loftus Road. Wayne Rooney's 53rd second header started United's return to the top of the table - even if only for a few hours - and QPR rarely looked like threatening their voyage back to where they believe they belong. United dominated the game, having chance after chance …
