It’s one of the most anticipated weekends in the English footballing calendar: Stoke City and Manchester City will be heading down to London to battle it out to see who will bookend an eventful season by winning the FA Cup in front of an expected 90,000 at Wembley.
Manchester City, bankrolled by wealthy oil tycoons who have invested £500m into the club to date, will head into the match as the favourites. Roberto Mancini’s side are keen to end a 35 year spell without silverware.
It’s this weekend’s magic number, it seems – it’s been 35 years in football for Tony Pulis, who started his playing career in 1975 with Bristol Rovers. After 19 years in management, he reaches his first...
“Kenny has lifted the place, the supporters, the players and everyone connected with the club and now we can all look forward to a bright future”
Steven Gerrard’s words will be echoed all around the red half of Liverpool this evening, fresh from the news that Kenny Dalglish has been signed as permanent club manager for the next three years.
Dalglish, who took over from the sacked Roy Hodgson, has won 11 of his 21 games back in charge of the Reds, a stat that perhaps doesn’t fully reflect the amazing turnaround the club has achieved since his appointment in January.
With wins over Chelsea, and both Manchester City and Manchester United in...
As Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United prepare for this weekend, needing just one point against Blackburn to be crowned this year’s Premier League Champions, the odds on them retaining the trophy next year have been slashed down to 7/4 (bet365).
At the final whistle of his side’s emphatic 2-1 victory over Chelsea this past Sunday, the thunderous roar from the Stretford End of Old Trafford was enough signal that his team had done enough to fight off any last minute challenge from the current holders to this year’s crown.
Chelsea finished the 2010 Premier League season on 86 points, one ahead of United, and will be ultimately disappointed that they haven’t been able to retain the coveted...
Following on from today’s earlier games where the battle for fourth between Spurs and Man City was left undecided for another week, tomorrow sees some crucial matches in the battle for the Premier League crown, as the top three are in action in matches that could make or break a season.
Stoke play Arsenal in the second of three Sunday matches, with Gunners midfielder Aaron Ramsey due to start against the side where he suffered a double fracture in his lower right leg in a tackle with defender Ryan Shawcross. Ramsey will possibly be in a side set up by Arsene Wenger that will also include long-term injury victim Thomas Vermaelen, who has been absent since the first three games of the season.
It’s that stage of the season where things start to get a little tense, a tad nervy, but for those on the outside, very exciting. As Fergie once coined it, it is indeed squeaky bum time.
So here are a couple of games that could be worth keeping an eye on over the weekend.
Starting at the bottom of the Premier League, West Ham host Blackburn with just six points between them as the season draws to an end. West Ham have some class players in their ranks, but their overall performances have left a lot to be desired. They face a team in Blackburn who are in a real freefall since sacking manager Sam Allardyce. Their 1-0 victory over rivals Bolton last weekend could be the start of a fight to stay in the division, but they must tighten...
