Bottom vs Top Followed By the North London Derby

The Sunday action starts with last placed Villa hosting fist place Citeh as Remy Garde , the highly rated French manager makes his debut as Villa manager. This is followed by the North London Derby and Liverpool vs Palace at 11 AM. It's a great way to head into the international break

The Moment's silence for Remembrance Day has concluded and now it's time for kickoff.

They're off from Villa Park

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This sure a thankless task for Remy Garde.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gana shoots wide for Villa in the first chance of the match for either team . Credit to Villa for holding their own with Citeh the first fifteen minutes of the match

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh break as Guzan fumbles a near post effort from Kolorov for a corner as Yaya picked out Sterling , who passed out to Kolorov . Then ping pong from the corner and Fernando snatched wide from close range.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

De Bruyne has a pass cut out for a corner off a nice one two. A bout of head tennis from the corner and the ball eventually makes it back to Guzan

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boni is off on the sideline getting treated for what looks like a strained hammy as Citeh are temporarily a man down

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's it for the Boner as Navas is getting ready to come on. He's on and the Boner goes straight to the dressing room.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh win a free kick about 25 yards out as De Bruyne goes down easily becaus eHutton had his hands on his back.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Kolorov was chipped into the box and Kompany did not have any as he was out by the touchline with his back to goal and the ball went harmlessly out of play

A Final score in the FA Cup as Exeter City have won 0-3 at Didcot Town

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Amavi tackles Sagna for a Citeh corner and a horrible overcooked corner from De Bruyne leads to a Villa counter through Carlos Gil . He gets past Fernandinho , but a last ditch intervention prevents a one on one with Joe HArt

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh nearly score in similar fashion as Sterling was put through and a last ditch intervention from Cieran Clark prevented a one on one with Guzan

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Villa had lost the ball in midfield and a pass from Fernadinho was cleverly back heeled by Yaya to Sterling and he fluffed his lines at the vital momenet.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Otamnedi fouls Gil just outside the Citeh box and is booked for that. Gil went down really easily. Great chance for Villa.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A waste as Carlos Gil blasts the free kick well over the goal. They need to take advantage of those rare opportunities.

9:11 AM

Whitehawk FC take the lead vs Abe Lincoln in the Cup.

9:11 AM

A decent chance for Citeh as Sterling was unmarked in the box, but the pass from De Bruyne was just too long.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cieran Clark is down after a clash of heads with De Bruyne.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He is up and back in action. A minute of stoppage time.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the end of a first half and Villa fans applaud the effort from their side and the fact that they have matched the top side in the Prem. Remy Garde has shown that Villa may be a more difficult side to defeat with him in charge.

9:17 AM

The second half is underway

Great close range save from Guzan from a close range header from Sterling off a great cross and run from Navas.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh turning up the screw as they are in complete control for the first time this match

9:40 AM

Insomnia is down holding his head.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's up and seems to be okay

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh players are upset because a powerful throw from Gestede is off of Hart for a corner. Citeh players are livid , but should be at their keeper for an embarrassing error. Fair play to Gestede

10:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A decent French connection as Gestede stabs at the corner from Vertout and it's inches over.

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Navas is tackled for a corner.

10:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

10:17 AM

OH!!! A cross from Ianacho is headed on to the bar by Fernando off a short corner. That Brazi connection nearly lead to a late winner that would have been harsh on Villa.

So where are we with this one. Arsenal have been good in the Premiership but rotten in Europe, including getting tonked by Bayern in mid-week. Spurs have been "Spursy" as the Men in Blazers lot term them, always flattering to deceive. They're always just about hanging around the last Champions League slot but never quite there.

The Gunners had a good break , but took too long to shoot and cheaply conceded possession

Some fancy footwork by Lamella there but it comes to nothing. This one has started as if shot out of a cannon.

11:06 AM

It's been an unusually low scoring weekend in the Prem with only eleven goals in eight matches. That's 1.27 goals a match. Sounds like Serie A of old.

A draw is probably the best result for United, right boys?

Citeh found it tough going in a changing of the Garde at Villa.

A draw would be a decent result , but a SPuds win suits me in the PPP.

11:09 AM

The announcer in the other match says Palace haven't scored from open play since August. That doesn't sound very accurate.

As we are right now, West Ham would drop out of the top five and Spurs would take their place. Liverpool are 8th and Palace 10th.

Braintree scored a late equalizer vs Oxford to force a replay. Well done to the team from Essex. Shrewsbury must have scored a last second winner at Gainsborough Trin ity as they win 0-1. A heartbreaker for the non leaguers.

Mauricio Pochettino has been responsible for nine England players making their debuts. He's more responsible for the progress of the England team than any English coach. It's like an extra coach for England.

11:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I would say parity based on the fact that the English teams are getting better results in Europe than last season. Other teams are improving.

11:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The parity yes, but also the lack of quality at the top. It seems from the CL as if our top sides are not as good as the other European leagues' best sides - as if there is a gap between Real, Barca, Juve, Bayern, PSG and City, United, Arse, Chelski.

11:33 AM

The league positions remind of a marathon. It's tight at the front and Chelsea is like the running huffing and puffing ,taking a break to puff on a ciggy.

According to Becky, Arsene let HArry go from the Gunners Academy. That must really sting

Great save by Cech from Joel Campbell as he cut in.

I just came back from answering a call from an annoying pollster and saw that the puds nearly went two up. Eriksen was just wide from one two with Harry Kane.

That is a puzzler , to be honest. Coq Au Vin should be holding down the midfield unless Arsene feels his team were being extremely overrun in the middle of the park

Off the bar by Giroud... that was close!
How was he so wide open?

Where's Bobby gone?

OH!!!! Giroud has a header come off the top of the bar from a curling free kick

Puncheon takes a shot... inches wide.... of the corner flag

Lamela is the first player booked as he was guilty of a naughty foul on Coq Au Vin. He will be suspended for the match vs the Hammers right after the international break, giving him an extra week to rest up for the clash vs Chelsea.

Struth.. what on earth was Cech doing there!!!
Did he all of a sudden become Australian and go walkabout

Thanks for bringing up the Spuds schedule. Those matches all could end up in Spuds victories. They could easily be top of the pops by the end of the Boxing Day fixtures.
