Posted on 1 Jan, 2015, by in Soccer

There’s a new number one in the Premier League as Chelsea now share the top spot after losing for the second time this season, beaten 5-3 by a surging Tottenham side displaying their best football since Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager. More

Stoke vs Manchester United

Referees Are Helping Manchester United Again

Posted on 1 Jan, 2015, by in Soccer

Somehow, someway, Manchester United managed to walk away from their visit to Stoke with a 1-1 draw and not a loss, mostly thanks to Michael Oliver completely ignoring a hand ball by Chris Smalling right in front of him in the penalty box. More

Premier League – Liverpool Win Without Steven Gerrard & a Little Bit of Luck

Posted on 29 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

For the first time this season, Steven Gerrard didn’t appear in the lineup or off the bench for Liverpool. Is it a coincidence that they beat Swansea 4-1? The Reds … More

Match Highlights – Liverpool vs Arsenal

Posted on 21 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

A fine match for Liverpool, still looking good without any strikers on the pitch, but again without a win, forced to score an injury time equalizer (Martin Skrtel) to end their match with Arsenal at a 2-2 draw, which doesn’t really help anyone. More

Raheem Sterling

Liverpool FC – Raheem Sterling Ruins it for Brendan Rodgers

Posted on 15 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

This awful season of disappointments and dreadful results in the big matches continues for Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers, although it could have been very different if Raheem Sterling was able to score at least one of his many wonderful chances, left alone to beat David de Gea. More

Posted on 14 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

A vintage Manchester United display: Playing terrible football and still beating Liverpool 3-0 thanks to David de Gea saves, Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli being unable to score from up close, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie scoring easy goals and Juan Mata doing the same but from an offside position.

Match Highlights – Arsenal vs Newcastle

Posted on 13 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

A 4-1 win over Newcastle didn’t move Arsenal up the Premier League table, but it did place them a lot closer to the top 4, as both Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla finished with a brace in what was probably the club’s best league performance this season. More

Wenger Out

Arsenal FC – Arsene Wenger Doesn’t Own the Manager Role

Posted on 10 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s always interesting to see how opinions are split when it comes to Arsene Wenger, the manager of Arsenal, who has a strong opposition about the people who matter – the Arsenal fans, but a very strong backing from the media, despite their usual taste and affinity for blood and scandal. More

Robin van Persie

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Shines Through Terrible Football

Posted on 9 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

Only three shots on goal were enough for Manchester United to pull off another win that puts them in a decent distance from the top of the table. Robin van Persie coming back to life with two goals is excellent news, but the team’s ability under Louis van Gaal isn’t. More

Jose Mourinho – Blame Everyone But Himself

Posted on 7 Dec, 2014, by in Soccer

In the mind of Jose Mourinho, it’s never his fault. Not his approach, not his tactics. It’s always the referee, the other team wasting time or playing to not to lose or even the fans who have something to do with the loss. Chelsea losing their first match didn’t rattle him too much, but brought him to his finest whining form. More
