A Manchester Sunday



It's a late season Sunday double header which starts with Swansea vs Citeh followed by a cracker as United host the Gunners . It should be an interesting Sunday morning.

The teams are out on the pitch .

Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the Liberty

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

COME ON YOU SWANS

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Swansea need a win to stay in the hunt for an EL spot.A Citeh win all but locks up second place.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gomis has a shot comfortably saved by Hart off a great pass by Shelvey after Di Michelis coughed up possession.

8:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - thanks for getting us going this morning. I had the clock set for 8am and then promptly went back to sleep for half an hour. Poor form.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Gomis shoots over from six yards out. Neil Taylor did well to find Jeff Montero down the left , who did well yo pick out Gomis. Citeh would have felt aggrieved had the goal gone in as the replay showed Montero to be offside.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Here are the teams:

Swansea: Fabianski; Richards, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Cork, Shelvey; Dyer, Sigurdsson, Montero; Gomis. Subs: Britton, Emnes, Grimes, Tremmel, Bartley, Barrow, Tiendalli.

Man City: Hart; Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Kolarov; Toure, Fernandinho; Milner, Lampard, Silva; Aguero. Subs: Kompany, Dzeko, Caballero, Bony, Jesus Navas, Clichy, Jovetic.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)

Kolorov heads out a cross for a Swans corner

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gomis heads wide form the corner

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Swans are really pushing Citeh. They're definitely the hungrier today. Of the sides pushing for EL slots, they and the Saints will be the ones who will relish those Thursday European nights. Spurs and Liverpool would probably rather not have them.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning mate. It's great to have you on board. No Problem. Surely , not any worse than missing the fastest hat-trick in Prem history because you were on the bog.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That sounds about right. The Saints played as if they really want a spot as are Swansea. Garry Monk publicly stated that he wants the Swans to finish in an EL spot.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Silva is upended by Dyer producing a decent free kick chance now for Citeh. Kolarov is over it.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by Dyer on Silva . Definitely a striker's challenge.

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not a bad effort from the Russian but always bending wide and over.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Kolorov is wide as it bent just a little too much.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Poor defending by Mangala and Hart does well to turn around a shot from Dyer, The corner from Siggy is headed away by Yaya and Citeh counter as Aguero has a goal diasllowed for offside.

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great save from Hart followed quickly by a Kun Aguero goal ruled offside - I thought he was level.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry mate, but I think Kolorov is a Serb.

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I cannot believe that Lampard hasn't packed off to NYC yet - Citeh's season is definitely over at this point. They can't win the title and yet they're into the Champions League. What's he waiting for?

8:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Is he now? Thanks for the correction.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Milner has a cross cut out for a corner by Ashley Williams

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I wonder if Lampard's contract states that he can't leave till the end of the season. It must be a legal loophole. Bloody lawyers!

8:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Flappy lets a Yaya drive go straight through him into the goal.

1-0 Citeh!

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! YAYA GIVES CITEH THE LEAD WITH A DEFLECTED SHOT THAT FOOLED FLAPPY AT THE NEAR POST.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Garry Monk , the highest placed English manager, will not be pleased. A poor goal to concede. It deflected off of Ashley Williams, but Flappy should have done better at the near post.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just read that LVG may make two new signings. It may be a return to OT for Paul Pogba and he's also interested in Thomas Mueller. Those are two exciting signings, but will it make a difference if United play such horizontal footie?

8:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's harsh on Swansea - they don't really deserve to be behind but their keep is to blame.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great Citeh counter and Neil Taylor clears for a corner off a great pass from Kolorov.

8:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Citeh rampant now slicing through the Swansea defense, through Kolarov and Lamps nearly slid through for another useless goal to add to his Citeh total.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mangala heads wide from the corner by Kolorov.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And Mangala misses with a free header from the resulting corner.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Liberty Stadium has fallen a bit flat. That goal from Toure has rather caught Swansea cold. They can’t have seen it coming. Which is partly why it happened.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. Flkappy has had a good season, but he should have done better at his near post, deflection or not.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. If Citeh win that makes United vs the Gunners all the more important.I'm pleased we qualified for the CL, but don't want a tricky qualifier in August.

9:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Every time a Swansea attack breaks down, Citeh look like they may score on the break.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A timely block by Neil Taylor from a shot by Yaya for a corner.

9:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

End to end stuff now. Gomes nipped for a diving header but was offside.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jack Cork nearly made a mess of the corner by Milner as Swansea break. Gomis heads straight to Hart as he's flagged offside.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Do you think Mueller and Pogba will be good signings for United? I do, but LVG will need to change his tactics in order for it to help.

9:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Morning Boys
I have been around but not a the computer
Swansea have been quite good but Citeh have their noses in the lead
In the United corner, we needed to have Citeh lose today and against Southampton at home to still finish second
Now, we need to beat the Arse today by four goals, have the Gunners draw at home to Sunderland and then third is in United's own hands

I am waking up now... that was a dream!

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

dyer wins a corner off of Kolorov.

9:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two nil... bugger

Swansea were the better team

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! MILNER PUTS CIITEH TWO UP ON THE COUNTER.

9:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Milner finishes Swansea off with a silky finish after a wonderful break.

0-2 Citeh!

9:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That goal came a Swansea corner... a corner that fails to beat the first man which opens up the break

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS. You're right, Swansea have arguably been the better side in this half but Citeh has been more lethal in their finishing.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A classic counter by Citeh off a Swansea corner as a clearance from Lampard found Aguero down the left. His pass found Milner, who finished past Flappy.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. I agree too, but Citeh have been more clinincal in their finishing

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry to say , but United have lost any chance of finishing second. They need to beat the Gunners today and hope for help from the Black Cats on Wednesday. I will be pleased with third, so they don't have to play a qualifier in August

9:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Goal at Wembley.. inside two minutes Grimsby take the lead against Bristol Rovers in the Conference Promotion final

Rovers are the ones that just missed out on automatic promotion

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's the one element of the game that continues to confuse me - why professionals using balls that they must be familiar with in training can't beat the first man with their corner kicks.

9:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'd like to see Bristol Rover back up in the league - that town deserves more footballing success.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would like Rovers to win and win promotion back to the Football League.

9:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

It is still a long shot for third after those three straight defeats
Again, a four goal swing today and dropped points against relegation fighting Sunderland on Wednesday.
A draw would be enough for Sunderland

So... A United win by four today and draw on Wed
Or... A United win today and a Sunderland win on Wed
Or. .. A United win today and Sunday and an Arsenal loss on either Wed or Sun

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. If we can beat the first man then why can't these pros. The Swans were made to pay.

9:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Into the one minutes of stoppage time now.

9:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I want Rovers too because they finished second
Grimsby did finish third but 5 points behind Rovers

The conference ended up with the top two not promoted meeting in the final like all the other divisions
Wonder if that has ever happened before

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That is a tough ask. Expecting the Gunners to drop points at home to the Black Cats or Baggies is a long shoot despite Fred's insistence that the Black Cats will win on wednesday

9:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

GOAL... game on

2-1

9:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Ziggy strikes back to set up a much better second half. Cracking strike into the corner.

9:16 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

So... we need Citeh to lose two

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! SIGGY SCORES WITH A CRACKING FINISH. GAME ON!

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That would be nice , but not with defending like that from the Swans.

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's the end of a cracking first half as Citeh lead 1-2.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Montero and Neil Taylor combined for that goal from Siggy and were helped by a pass that deflected off of Milner.A fantastic finish from Siggy.

9:18 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

What do you think the result of a poll on the BBC was

Which of the managers involved in today's games had had the best season

Gary Monk
Manuel Pellegriini
Louis van Gaal
Arsene Wenger

What were the percentages?

9:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would pick Garry Monk, the highest placed English manager. I'm not sure about the percentages on the poll.

Bristol Rovers have equalized at Wembley
half hour in

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

UWS, I have an answer to your question . The former Hereford United finished second in 2004 and 2005 and were not promoted in either season.In 2004 , they finished a point behind Chester City with 91 points, 103 goals and a + 59 gd. They went out to Aldershot in the first round of the playoffs on penalties despite having 21 more points than Aldershot. The following season they finished second and went out to Stevenage in the first round of the playoffs. They had only two more points than Stevenage in the regular season . In 2006, the third time was the charm as they finished second , but were finally promoted via the playoffs

9:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WAY HAY!!! I want Rovers up.

9:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Here's my best guess:
1) Garry Monk
2) Arsene Wenger
3) LVG
4) Pelligrini

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PHEW!!! lAMPARD LET sWANSDEA OFF THE HOOK WIOTH A POOR FINSH ON A CLASSIC BREAK WHERE HE LEAD THE BREAK AND PLAYED A ONE-TWO with Aguero

Montero wins a corner off of Zaba

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Montero wins another corner off of Zaba. The corner from Siggy is out for another

9:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Navas is on for Lampard , presumably, to add more width

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Silva wins a corner

9:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm back from a bite to eat for brekkies. I made Kate a scrambled egg sandwich.

My guess would be:

1) Arsene Wenger
2. Gary Monk
3. Louis Van Gaal
4. Manuel Pellegrini

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Navas shoots straight at Flappy off the corner from Kolorov then Zaba is booked for a foul on the break

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, mate. That's close to my order except that we have Monk and wenger switched.

9:48 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Interesting facts but I don't think that's what I asked

I said that the playoff final in each division is between the top two positions not promoted
Championship
3rd Norwich vs 4th Boro
League 1
3rd Preston vs 4th Swidon
League 2
4th Wycombe vs 5th Southend
Conference
2nd Bristol Rovers vs 3rd Grimsby

no sixth place team getting promoted

9:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks for the clarification. I would say probably not, but I will check.

DESMOND AT THE LIBERTY!!!!

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
SWANSEA HAVE COME FROM TWO DOWN TO MAKE IT DESMOND. GREAT FINISH BY GOMIS.

9:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Gomis equalizes and then crawls toward the camera. Desmond!

9:52 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Poll results
Gary Monk 59.6%
Arsene Wenger 26.8%
Louis van Gall 11.1%
Manuel Pellegrini 2.5%


I don't know how either Manc manager got ANY votes

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Poor defending by Di Michelis and Mangala as they were caught out by a long ball from Fernandez and Gomis took adavanatage with a great finish. That was seconds after Flappy made a near post save from Silva

9:54 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Wonder what team will LVG pick with his beloved Rooney not available!

Rooney and Shaw are out for the last two games of the season
Welbeck is out of the Arse too

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Flappy did well to block from Silva after a nice one two with Milner.

9:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Another goal by Swansea and then United could finish second!!
A loss at home to SIX GOAL Southampton is not completely out of the question

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think I picked the correct order, UWS. I agree with you about the two Manc managers not deserving any votes.

9:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Of course, United winning both games means we will relegate a United stalwart Bruce

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. The pond frog wants EL footie and I would not want to face the Saints in a must win match

9:57 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think the Arse should rest all of their players... they have a massive Cup Final in less than a fortnight!

9:58 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

City would only need a draw next week of they lose this one

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I love Brucie, but I want a United win. I think Brucie will be relegated and no sympathy as it was their responsibility to do better in their previous games, especially the home match vs Burnley

9:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

wishful think. I would love Arsene to rest his players, but I think he wants to avoid a qualifier in August

10:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barrow, the Gambian born Swede , is on for Dyer. Like for like.

10:00 AM

10:01 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

BUGGER
3-2

another poor display by Flappy
He must really be peeved with the Arse
Having a blinder midweek and then gifting Citeh with two

10:02 AM

Desmond is escorted out of the Liberty thanks to Flappy.

10:02 AM

I'm sure he is, but he never did well enough to be their regular starter

I'm sure he is, but he never did well enough to be their regular starter

10:05 AM

Leon Britton is on for Shelvey. Why make a defensive change when you are a goal down. I never get that Is this more out of loyalty because he's about to retire?

10:05 AM

Arsenal are unchanged

10:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Really poor from Flappy. Does he think it's Yaya Toure's birthday?

10:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

What is LVG thinking? How does he deserve to be United captain? Falcao playing one of his last matches for United/

10:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Is this the last Old Trafford performance for De Gea? Falcao? DiMaria? RVP?

10:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fernandinho is off and Kompany on for him.

10:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A belated gift from Flappy. He sure dropped it off in a timely manner for Citeh.

10:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I read that Paul Pogba may make a return to OT and be joined by Mueller . Will Chicha return from his loan at Real? Surely , he would be a starter.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would say yes about those four players

10:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great save by Hart

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hart superbly turns around a header from Fernandez headed for the upper 90.

10:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wonderful save by Joe Hart!

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If Swansea lose then they cannot qualify for the EL , but 8th place would be a great finish for them

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Marvin Emnes is on for Siggy

10:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I know United have always been money bags but they used to buy one major player or maybe two but never just buy anyone with two any type of reputation!!

I didn't like us buying them last year and again this year
Cech? Bale? Clyne? Muller? Pogba?

Not liking it

10:10 AM

Oh - Hart saves again, this time from Gomis!

10:11 AM

10:22 AM

Still - sometimes a team that's rebuilding can build some momentum by playing a couple of real pre-season matches against inferior opposition. It's not the worst thing.

It's over and Citeh win an entertaining match 2-4 and have all but clinched second place.

I'm watching. Tight between the two sides so far. Neither side is gong to run over the other today.

Young is having visions of his two corkers in the 8-2 match

I didn't see that match live
We had lost power with a close hurricane that day

Lee Dixon is talking about firm pitches now. Dirty bugger!

United playing too slow AGAIN

The 8-2 match was the day after Melanie's Bat Mitzvah and one f the hottest days in Harlingen's history. Definitely was a day to stay inside and watch the footie.

What the hell was that from Rojo!!!

I agree. What good will it do to sign the like of Pogba and Mueller if LVG doesn't change the tactics.

Oh - Young with a teasing cross - cleared out.

And now Koz has to block a shot by Falcao. Good pressure from United.

Falcao with a chance...weak effort!!

He doesn't seem to know how to kick the ball any more

Great tackle by Kos on Falcao . Corner United

United need to win by four

Smalling with an effort blocked

Well - good players have a way of forcing coaches to play the game differently.

Smalling has a shot come off of Bellerin for another corner.

Think about the backline you lot would have now if you'd hung on to Pique and Pogba. Why did Fergie let them go?

Falcao falls over or slips every time near the ball

11:10 AM

I also wonder if Chicha will return to United. He will do better than Falcao and has shown he can score in the Prem.

All the talk about the players coming to OT, where are the center backs!!!!

11:11 AM

I heard a rumor that Hernandez might go to Orlando

11:11 AM

Dixon's right - Ashley Young needs to cut back onto his right peg to cross every time. Makes it easy for the full-back.

11:12 AM

The rumor is that SAF thought Pique lacked the strength to handle the physicality of the Prem and was behind Ro and Vidic in the pecking order. Pogba never could break into the starting lineup. Those errors of judgement are on Fergie, not Moyes.

If United don't win by four then, they would need to have Arsenal have loss not just draw in one of their last two games

Oh - Sanchez was away there but showed too much of the ball to Yashley.
