The Second Saturday of the Season

 I'm up early for the start if another slate of fixtures, starting with the Saints vs the Toffees. There are two televised fixtures at 10 AM: The Spuds vs Stoke on NBCSN and The Hammers vs the Foxes on USA. There is not a late Prem match this Saturday. Time to wake up!

Good morning Bob. Thank you very much.

I go back to work on Monday , so I might as well get used to getting up early.

They're off from St. Mary's

Everton is wearing a bizarre away kit.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Brummies take the lead at Turf Moor. Good news for me as they are one of my picks for promotion. Bad news for the bookies. HEE Hee !

7:48 AM

Yeah, we start gearing up on Monday again.

Jon-Miguel Toral with the Brummies goal.

Mane wins a Saints corner.

7:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First big call for referee Michael Oliver as The Chunk goes over just outside the box. Free kick - spot on.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Steven Davis is headed away by the first man then thew chunk sprints on a break and is fouled just ootside the box by Matt Targett and receives a yellow, not a red.

7:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Barkley fires into the wall and out for a corner.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Barkley is deflected for a corner.

Targett heads away the corner.

Kone wins another corner - The Toffees on the front foot early doors.

7:53 AM

Kone has a shot blocked for another Toffees corner.

The next corner is far too high and heads out of play

Did you see that Leeds is the early Championship match next Saturday?

7:55 AM

I saw that; should be another BEin broadcast. Lovely.

7:56 AM

Nice football from the Saints , but the angle was not on Mane's side as he shot harmlessly wide.

7:57 AM

Morning boys
I am around this morning but not fully at the races. I will pop in when I can!
Busy getting ready for guest tonight
Busy getting ready for Hawaii next Friday
Busy getting fit.. have to do my five mile walk.



PS United suck

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's a Big Yorkshire Derby vs Not a Big Club. You should definitely be up for that one. You are at Ashton Gate on Wednesday. Definitely a tricky start for Uwe.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS - great to have you at least half on board. Sounds like you've got a busy morning - get crackin', mate.

7:59 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Really annoys me that Everton are wearing green.... does blue shirts and white shorts clash with red and white stripes and black??

7:59 AM

Good morning UWS. Bob and I go back to work on Monday while you will be in nice cool, Hawaii.

7:59 AM

I'm a bit fearful about it after our not to special start to the season.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I referred to their away kit as bizarre.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Uwe needs to realize that more than a great hairdoo is required to be in charge at ER.

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Agreed - he's got to pull his finger out.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LVG needs to watch this match as his compatriot and archnemesis has an entertaining side on show today.

8:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Everton still enjoying the spoils of possession here.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ozzy Osbourne told me to tell you that's a trip down the Crazy Rails tomorrow for Leeds. I don't think that's BEIN televised because the really early match is.

8:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Watching SS... talking about yesterday's match... and the stonewall penalty Villa should have had. I agree.... Richards was wrapped around the neck by Darmian... don't know how ref didn't call it
The refs have to start stopping this

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They did early doors , but the Saints have been in control the last few minutes.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree, UWS. I was surprised that Darmian wasn't called for the rugby tackle. Was it that horrible haircut by Micah Richards that cost him?

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mane has a shot blocked by Timmy for a corner off a nutmegged pass by Pelle after a back pass by Coleman lacked the mustartd.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! The Chunk nods home Everton's opener.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! THE CHUNK GIVES THE TOFFEES THE LEAD ON THE BREAK OFF THAT CORNER.

8:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

The GREENS score on a break from a Sotton corner

Wow, that's what happens hen you attack fast going forward and crossing the ball... are you watching LVG

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Classic counterattacking goal there down the right hand side after a corner. Kone stood up a lovely ball and Lukaku merely guided the ball back across the goal into the corner.

0-1 Toffees

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There was the LUFC influence there as Ross Barkley led the break off the Saints corner and found Kone down the right and his superb cross was superbly headed in by the Chunk at the far post. A textbook counter

8:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lukaku was my pick for top goalscorer two seasons ago, as I expected him to start for Chslski. He's never quite fulfilled his early promise at Everton. Perhaps this is his big season.

8:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LVG should watch because he's calling his style a Dutch style , but Ronnie is Dutch and puts out an entertaining side. This is more like the Dutch style I'm used to seeing.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This is a critical season for him as he had a poor season last season. Someone must be delighted.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Looking at the list of Premiership fixtures, it's not the most impressive day, is it? No Chelski, no Citeh, no Arsenal, no Liverpool, and obviously no Arsenal.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Stecklenburg pushes out a near post effort from MccCArthy after he got too easily past Yoshida.

8:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Correct. The better matches are tomorrow. Pool host the Cherries on Monday.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

And no late match today. I think the top ones today are this match and the Hammers vs the Foxes, who both had big wins last week.

8:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Everton should have doubled their lead there.. awful attempt by Barkley... England star of the future? Hit the ball straight at the keeper... still better than United. Three shots in 180 minutes. Both goals... off a defender

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Toffees nearly went two up as the Chunk superbly found Barkley , whose shot was well saved by Stecklenburg , then Not so Clever Boy shot the rebound wide when he should have scored.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. I'm not too fond of watching one nil to the United. This Dutchman has a more entertaining side than out Dutchman's side.

8:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Targett is off seeking treatment but looks to be able to continue.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The possession is Even Steven, but not the score.

8:17 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

As for me, while Kath and I are in Hawaii, I will miss three United matches
Newcastle at home
Club Brugges away
Swansea away

Will we have more than double figure shots in all of them combined

BTW, Kathy has told me I can't be so negative toward United. She's right but they aren't the United I love

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be interested to hear that there are two Evil Championship fixtures, both BEIN televised.

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Everton have moved into second spot behind United on 4 points now. Who is your pick for tomorrow - Chelski or Citeh? Who do you fear more this season?

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barry heads away a free kick from Tadic.

8:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

To be fair, i have been negative to the entire modern game

Again, not the game I love

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wanayama heads over from the corner.

8:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So does that mean that you won't be waking up at 2 in the morning to watch United? For shame!

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think I fear Citeh more because Jose seems to have lost the plot and it will impact the team, IMHO.

8:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Tomorrow will be a draw of course.. Neither team will want to take a risk and try and win!

8:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kathy is absolutely right - and she makes a lovely coffee cake!

8:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That will suit United just right, eh? They'll be three points clear of Citeh and four points clear of Chelski early doors.

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It will be more like 1:30 AM, which I did for the Japanoria WC. I agree with Kathy about us needing to be more positive about United, no matter how challenging that is.

8:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Stones has a problem now; physio on to help him.

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I will have to record the matches vs Brugges since I rertuen to work on Monday, but will look forward to seeing lots of goals while UWS is in Hawaii.

8:23 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Kone and Lukaku double act seems to be working for the Toffees. I do agree with UWS that the modern game is too conservative so it's refreshing to see a side and a manager who's willing to go with an actual strike partnership. Both have scored already this season.

8:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I know she is... I have to stop
I am just not going to comment when I am so upset
I know, top of the league, no goals conceded, 100% record BUT it isn't the United way... the United of old

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pelle is booked for a naughty challenge.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I am pleased to see the Brummies one up at the half at Turf Moor. They Brummies are one of my picks for promotion.

8:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think the Hammers vs the Foxes may be an entertaining 10 AM match. It is being shown on USA.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob is correct as United vs the Toon is the early Prem match next Saturday. Kickoff is at 1:45 AM HST. Leeds vs Not a Big Club kicks off at 1:30 AM HST. UWS will need to set the Strawberry Alarm Clock for those.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's a decent shout - Brum could do well this season.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Another break and another Chunk goal!

8:29 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! THE CHUNK SCORES HIS AND THE TOFFEES SECOND

8:29 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Toffees two up... Lukaku with a neat finish

8:30 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That might just kill off Soton today - great time to score. And a lovely finish from the big man. He's got a header and a left-footed strike. Now he only needs a right footed goal for a classic hat-trick.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

tHREE MINUTES OF STOPPAGE TIME.

8:30 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

One more comment and I am done

Will the game go back to the way we knew? Just with Old Trafford in mind...
I know it won't go back to the times before we were alive where the formation was 3-2-5 with a left wing, inside left , center forward, inside right and right wing BUT what's wrong with have a partnership up top. Cole and Yorke, Sheringham and Solskjaer with Giggs and Beckham providing the width and quality crosses, VNR and Rooney with Ronaldo and Beckham providing width and quality crosses, Hughes and Cantona with Giggs and Kanchelskis providing width and quality crosses Greenhoff and Pearson... with Hill and Coppell providing width and supplying the crosses

Did I mention the the holding midfielder pair?
Wing backs?
A diamond?

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be pleased that Ross Barkley played his part in both goals as he's shown what he learned at ER. The Chunk won a tackle in midfield then played a lovely one two with Barkley before scoring with a great finish

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm sorry to say that those formations are a thing of the past. sorry, but the Ace of Diamonds is here to stay

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barkley is booked for a foul just outside the box seconds before the halftime break. Timmy punches away the free kick and the Toffees are two up at the half.

The Brummies nearly went two up as Donaldson had a cross headed out then a volley was inches wide as Gary Rowett looks pleased at the way his side is playing.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cotterill is called for a foul on Michael Kightly, who went down too easily and
BUGGER! BURNLEY TIE IT UP AS THE FREE KICK FROM KIGHTLY WAS HEADED ON BY NICO VOSSEN AND FORMER UNITED TRAINEE , MICHAEL KEANE HEADED IN AT THE FAR POST

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clayton Donaldson was through for the Blues , but his shot was saved by Tom Heaton from a narrow angle.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I am none too pleased about that Burnley goal as Kightly was barely touched and went down as if polaxed , then hen Burnley score off his free kick. It should never have been a free kick in the first place.

Mane has a cross blocked by Coleman and headed out by Clever Boy for a corner taken by Steven Davis and headed wide by Wanayama.

9:20 AM

I commented on your rant at the half.

9:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I do think that the game will swing back in a more attacking direction. It may not go back to a W-M formation, as you say, mate. But it will only just take one attacking side that's successful to show the way, as Barca did for the tiki taka possession nonsense that's ruining the game.

9:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Timmy does well to push away a long range effort from Mane as James Ward-Prowse is on for Steven Davis.Naismith is on for Kone.

And that's 3-0! Ross Barkley!

It finishers Desmond at Turf Moor. A decent result for the Brummies, but is that two points dropped as they had the lead?

Tom is student teaching this semester and then he will be done. He is student teaching local so he will be living at home

As for Matt, I think it is a good move for him

9:32 AM

One youngster on for another as Browning is on for Galloway. Looks like a decent Toffees youth Academy. The final roll of the dice from Roberto as Deulafeu is on for the Chunk.

That match vs Pool was almost a carbon of our match vs the Spuds. when I watched it I thought I was watching a replay of the match at OT.
