Carling Cup

Tevez Downs Red Devils

Ah, I love cross town rivalries. They really do warm the heart. Nothing screams “Fuck you neighbour!” quite like a few fake dives, a bad penalty decision and two goals by the same player, that only a mere 6 months ago was plying his trade for the opposing team… oh and how could I forget...

Chelsea’s Cup Stops Here

Chelsea seem to have this rare gift that very few teams in this world possess (Manchester United also share this gift)… they always manage to score with one of the last kicks of the game and last night’s match against Blackburn was prime example with Paulo Ferreira popping up to score in stoppage time of...

Citizens Gun Down Arsenal

This was the first time in about a million or so games that City didn’t concede stupid goals draw; coincidentally it was the second time in a mere 4 days that Arsenal were out muscled by a stronger, more experienced opponent. What I want to know is when will Arsene Wenger learn? Yes it’s great...

A Star Is Born!

Darren Gibson’s classy two goals, helped an experimental Red Devils triumph over a near full strength Tottenham in their Carling Cup quarter final match at Old Trafford last night… and Sir Ferg. was happy as Larry. Goal.com And Darron Gibson is the one player in our club who can score great goals from outside the...

Hanging Tough!

Talk about doing it tough! At half-time, a near full strength Manchester City were a shaky 2-1 up against Championship team Scunthorpe, who actually looked quite impressive on the break. What happened in the second half doesn’t really matter at this point cause it doesn’t help drill home my point but I seem to constantly...

Did You Expect Any Less?

Arsene Wenger’s juniors have kicked the shit out of grown men before [here] so I expected nothing less of them when a half strung Liverpool showed up at the Emirates last night. Sure I would have put my money on the Reds if this was a bare knuckle boxing death match, but eh, it was...

Two down three to go

Look out! United have just grabbed their second trophy of the season and now there’s three to go… can they do it? CRon thinks so: It is quite difficult to achieve but we are going from game to game,” he told English tabloid The Sun, after the game.“We always have the opportunity to win everything....

Carling Cup – Burnley 3 v 2 Tottenham

Given the result of the first leg, I think everyone must have thought, myself included, that Tottenham would have held out for an easy win or even a draw to secure their second consecutive appearance in the Carling Cup final… turns out Burnley had other ideas and they made the Lillywhites look more like Pansies...

Carling Cup – Man United 4 v 2 Derby

As if you didn’t see this happening. I mean, go Derby, you did well to get this far, but I think you were suffering from a severe case of wishful thinking, kind of like the time I wished my shlong would grow to 12″, instead I was hit in the head by a wayward Foot...

Carling Cup – Man United 5 v 3 Blackburn

Desperate to impress his manager and regain a starting position in the first eleven, Carlos Tevez stole the show at Old Trafford last night and if it hadn’t been for the woodwork midway through the second half, he may have had his fifth of the match. Like a Godzilla stumbling through the streets of Japan,...

Carling Cup – Burnley 2 v 0 Arsenal

The Wenger Boys dream run came to a premature end when they were shot down by giant killers Burnley… boys, premature, shot down… I ain’t even gonna bother with this one, watch the match highlights instead… gross! Match highlights:Note: Ignore the Ferg and Ince interviews at the start

The Redknapp revival continues!

Turns out that Adelaide weren’t the only red’s to go down to the same opponent in the space of a fortnight.Only eleven days ago Tottenham came from behind to shock Liverpool at Anfield and kick-start their Premiership ambitions again. Since then the Lillywhites have grown in stature and confidence and are looking more like the...
