Norwich City vs Stoke City | Report

After a second draw in two games for both teams in the league this season, Norwich stand one place above Stoke in the table.  What do you mean, that means nothing at this point in the season?! Wolves are quite obviously favourites to win the league you know? In a match that went to ‘Fergie’ time, were Stoke their usual tight fisted self’s? Or did they open up in the face of seemingly inferior opponents? Carrow Road, Norwich – Attendance …
Moses impact | Wigan fail to make a mark

Moses impact | Wigan fail to make a mark

The season is finally here and the inevitable finally happened with Charles N'Zogbia leaving for Aston Villa but have Wigan already found a replacement for Charles N'Zogbia? In Victor Moses Wigan have a young player that not only has bags of pace and potential but also has experience at Wigan in the Premiership. Wigan started as the left off last year playing 4-5-1 with Franco Di Santo starting upfront on his own with Victor Moses filling Charles N'Zogbia's boots. It was …

Possession without the Edge | Swansea vs Wigan Athletic

The Liberty Stadium opened its doors to the Premier League with the visit of Wigan Athletic on a grim (Weather wise) but nevertheless [caption id="attachment_3222" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Swansea City In Action at the Liberty"][/caption] enthralling day.  Possession, A Penalty and a consequent save can sum up the main headlines of the game but that statistics provide an insightful look into Swansea’s attack.

Swansea | Taking steps forward ?

Swansea | Taking steps forward ?

Swansea City undoubtedly have a lot to thank Roberto Martinez for, a play maker in the bottom tier who brought culture to a poor side, an inspirational captain through the clubs most turbulent times, and a manager who established a style of play which delighted fans and caught the attention of the national media. However it would be fair to say that both club and manager have moved on since his departure. Martinez has now had two seasons in the …

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

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 …
