Stoke vs Norwich | Error, no stats available

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 …
Stoke | Who is the Fairest one of all?

Stoke | Who is the Fairest one of all?

Firstly, can I just say – Aguero has been this good for years. He could be better than Messi in the future. Someone who won’t be, ever, is Ryan Shawcross. Woodgate was a Galactico at one point, perhaps the only player to be good enough to be signed, but inconsistent enough to make a mess of it. Both are now at Stoke City, facing stiff completion to secure a starting berth and both could have a credible shout at an …
A New United Defence

A New United Defence

Manchester United is set to face a daunting set of opponents in the Premier League over the next four weeks and may have to do so without their first choice defense.  Starting with Monday's visit from Tottenham, the Red Devils face 3 of the top 5 teams from last season in the next 4 weeks, culminating with Chelsea's visit on September 18th.  For the matches with Spurs, Bolton, Arsenal and Chelsea, Sir Alex Ferguson will have to juggle a young …

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 …
Newcastle: The

Newcastle: The "not so" smooth transition from football club to business

The fact that football clubs across the UK are now being ran more and more as businesses is not entirely popular with football fans. There is often a gulf between what the football club can afford to do and what the loyal fan would like them to do and over the next couple of years that gulf is likely to grow. My team is Newcastle United, and has been since I attended Kevin Keegan's first debut as as a player …
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. Historically, City have not fared well at the Reebok, at times struggling for goals, …
Fabregas | Farewell, El Capitan

Fabregas | Farewell, El Capitan

When I went to bed Sunday night I was planning on spending this evening writing about the 2011-12 EPL season outlook using my input to the Transfer Price Index's season predictions.  I thought I had come to terms with the departure of of Cesc Fabregas over the summer, and certainly in the last week as it became abundantly clear that Barcelona were going to have their man no matter what.  All of that changed on Monday morning, as I woke to …
