So Rio is out with a knock so Evans replaces him

I put on VSS and it is paused but says it will show the match

I went to atdhe and chose the Sky link and it was the panel talking. The bloke has since changed it to MUTV

8:14 AM

Great behind the scenes stuff at OT

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

All the news on the net is that Tevez is going to leave United
United aren't going to pay 30 million pounds for a 'reserve' striker!

We're going to miss him

Morning, Dave! I'm here and really looking forward to another great day of the footer chat. Happy Mother's Day to Kathy. I've just had a chat with my mum who is resigned to the fact that she's going to be a soccer widow once again. Ah well...

I want a nice easy win!!

Bit of a weak side for you lot IMHO. Not that it should matter. You should be able to beat this lot with a team made up of the MUFC tea ladies.

Good morning Robert

Two wins and one draw without Costa taking the field United would be CHAMPIONS!!!

not then I really would like to see

Button win the championship .

8:42 AM

Robinho isn't a big match player. He's the one who can always be relied upon to stuff in a hat-trick for Real against Mallorca or for Brazil against Venezuela but not in big ones.

8:42 AM

Ferrari!!!
Do they even have a POINT!

8:43 AM

Good stuff. That's something you can only get when you watch the small clubs. If I lived in England, I'd probably go regularly to watch a small club, probably Barnet.

Great stuff on 606 last night, especially the van load of Exeter fans excited about promotion.

He doesn't seem happy

Kia Doorabshian in the stands, covering his mouth as he talks on his mobile. What a wanker.

Ronaldo's arsed off to be substituted. He hasn't marched down the tunnel but he's gesticulating like a madman.

Who came on for Ronaldo?

9:51 AM

What a baby Ronaldo is. Throwing the rubber ducky out of the pram in front of the whole crowd. Fergie should kick a boot in his face.

From Sign him up!!!(Tevez) on 606: "Disappointing reaction from Ronaldo. Fergie's stuck by him all season, even when he was not at his best. Now he is at his best and is taken off to have a rest for the big games coming up and he is being a disgrace.

I am surprised with United's display in the second half. This is how they have been playing for the majority of the season

BC Radio 5 Live's Jimmy Armfield: "Whatever Carlos Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo do won't affect Sir Alex Ferguson. I'm not sure what Tevez was doing really when he scored, but the crowd do like him and he's endeared himself to them even more today. It'll be interesting to see what happens."

Three up front for Chelski. Pretty attacking formation for the away team.

11:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal go straight up the pitch from the kick-off and carve out a chance for Theo.

11:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

RVP - a striker? You're having a laugh.

11:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wenger has come out this week saying that he has no need or intention to buy any players this summer. I reckon Jose Mourinho is right about him when he says that Wenger has the easiest job in football. He doesn't ever have to win anything and everyone considers "the professor."

11:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Good move there between Nasri and Theo ending with a sharp save by Cech. Arsenal have had the better of the opening stages.

11:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ooh, Diaby had the net beckoning him there and he somehow contrived to screw it wide. Big chance.

11:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Another silky move there by the Arsenal midfield, with Fabregas linking onto an RVP ball. He just ran out of space before Cech collected.

Apart from one speculative shot from Lampard, it's been all Arsenal.

11:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great ball across the area by Nasri but as usual the "strikers" were absent. They might actually win something if they had a proper striker who had a nose for where the goal is. A Michael Owen in his prime would have been there to stab it in.

11:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh, another chance goes begging. Great ball in from Diaby and Theo hit is sidefooted first time, just past the post.

11:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

More lovely stuff but why aren't RVP or Ade ever on the end of the telling pass instead of Fabregas and Theo and Nasri?

11:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh, Cashley got through and played it back to Malouda who scuffed his shot. To be fair to him, the ball back was slightly behind him. Saved by Gibbs.

11:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mikel nibbles at Nasri and picks up a bollocking for his trouble. I agree with you, Dave. In days past, the ref would have just given a foul and moved on.

11:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fabregas drives the free kick into the wall, it comes back out to Song and he hits it horribly wide.

Now it's Fabregas into the book for his first serious challenge. Very picky.

GOAL! Drogba swings the free kick in and Alex rises majestically to head in off the bar. Fabianski it is in goal and he barely moved for it.

Chelski 0-1 up against the run of play.

I think you see there why Chelski are likely to win more than Arsenal in the coming years. They have strikers who will regularly chip in 20+ goals, plus a midfielder in Lampard who scores 15-20 goals and two center backs who will contribute 5-10 goals from set pieces over the season. That adds up to trophies.

Fabregas nibbles in again and Phil Dowd is very close to sending him off now. That was actually a bookable offense whereas the first one was just a regular foul.

That Alex goal seems to have completely broken the rhythm of the home team. The momentum has swung to Chelski.
