Sunday Soccer Fest

Good morning, lads! We've got a busy Sunday schedule ahead of us this morning. First up is struggling Villa against title-challengers Arsenal. Only in the Premiership can you have surprises when top and bottom meet. That's followed by the Baggies vs. Liverpool as well as Spurs vs. Newcastle. Drop on by for a cuppa and a chat about the footer this morning.

Lose to Dinamo Zagreb, beat Bayern Munich. Capitulate at home to Olympiakos, stuff Manchester United a few days later. Drop points at Norwich and West Brom after taking the lead in both games, travel to Greece with half a team in the treatment room ... and qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Olympiakos. Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Arsenal Football Club.

Good morning Bob. I expect the Gooner, dad, and Simon to be celebrating with some vanilla ice cream today.

This is, of course, Remi Garde's reunion of sorts with Arsene Wenger, who made him his first signing at Arsenal alongside Patrick Vieira.

8:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

There's a Sanchez on the Villa side today, but not on the Arsenal one. Hat-trick hero Giroud partners Theo up front for the Gunners.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The teams are out on the pitch . Both managers know each other all too well as Remy Garde finished his playing career , playing for the Gunners in the late 90s that were managed by none other than Arsene Wenger

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You beat me to the punch. Well in. Also, the Sanchez for the vanillas is Carlos Sanchez, a Colombian international

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Villa PArk.

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

The Gunners get us started at Villa Park wearing their gold and blue number.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Based on the handshake, it's seems like the two managers are good friends or amis.

8:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm sure the Gooner would like a vanilla ice cream cone with gold and blue sprinkles.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners could end the weekend top of the pops. I wonder who lead the PPP.

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

With Alexis Sanchez's absence, Joel Campbell has been getting some more playing time and has been taking advantage of it.

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Let's hope so - I'm the only one who picked Arsenal for the title, I think. I still won't be on top but I'll certainly rise in the table.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sinclair collects a long ball out wide right and jinks inside to shoot straight at Cech.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Trevor Sinclair shoots straight at his former Chelsea teammate, Cech

8:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kevin Friend has a big decision now, with Theo bowled over by Hutton. He's given a penalty!

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud steps up to take....

And scores! Arsenal take the lead 0-1!

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought that Hutton fouled Theo in the box. Yes it is as Kevin Friend pointed to the spot. It took him a while considering it was an obvious penalty.
GOAL!!! THE HAT-TRICK HERO SCORES FROM THE SPOT, SENDING GUZAN THE WRONG WAY

8:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Pretty clear penalty there on the replay, Hutton pulling Theo back when he got the wrong side of him.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Isn't E.F. Hutton lucky to be on the pitch? Surely, that was a denial of a goal scoring opportunity.

8:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

So Arsenal are a point clear at the top. I'm celebrating along with Gooner and Dad.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm sure the Gooner will be none too pleased to see the former Spud still on the pitch

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

He is but I hate that rule. I reckon that a red card or a penalty is punishment enough. Both changes the match too much.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carlos Sanchez made a lot of that foul from Ramsey as did Giroud from Lescott.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Villa had a bright start but now they're down in the dumps again. Bottom of the league on 7 points.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That is a good point. As is the match has changed since Villa trail early doors. They will have to dig deep to get back into this match

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I blame Sherwood Forest for Villa's predicament, not the changing of the Garde.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Le Socks is belaboring the point . Get over it.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Theo is offside to the delight of the Holte End faithful.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Guzan does well to anticipate a through ball intended for Campbell's soup.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sarcastic cheers from the home fans as Ramsey concedes a free kick

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

Villa have a free kick chance - wasted by Veretout.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Veretout was intended as a cross, but goes all wrong

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

Oh - Guzan went walk about on that free kick and Giroud nearly scored his second. Cleared off the line by Gestede.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Guzan misjudges a free kick from Ozil and Sanchez clears a header from Giroud off the line. Kos heads wide from the resulting corner.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bacuna volleys over after Cech misjudges a cross.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

As things currently stand, it's bottom vs top at Villa Park. If the Spuds win today then United drop down to fifth place.

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arlo mentions that Villa might set a regrettable club record today with a loss.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It hasn't been a good week for Louis van Gaal's army, for sure.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Actually, a draw would do it. The longest winlees run in club history. Horrible!

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better from Villa as Ayew has a shot blocked off a long solo run.

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

Villa could easily beat Derby County's current record for least number of points in a Premiership season, which I think is 13 or 14.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United should cut their losses , sack LVG, and put Giggsy in charge for the rest of the season. Pep should be available in the summer and that would be a great time to bring him over to OT.

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why would Pep leave Bayern?

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think it's 11. Strange as it may seem , Villa are over halfway there. I think Derby's record is safe.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yesterday, Neil Ashton mentioned in the pre match show that Pep is rumored is considering leaving Bayern.

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Could be - that is a terrible record.

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hmmm....I wonder why.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A free kick from Ozil is just too high. Villa could easily have gone two down

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

Ozil nearly connects with Koz at the back post from the free kick. He's got the most number of assists in the Premiership this season.

9:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm not sure. I wonder if it's just a rumor in the press.

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

Oh - Garner tried one from distance - that could have flown straight in but it's well wide.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gana has that name because that shot was never Gana trouble Cech.

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

Gueye, that is - I'm having trouble with my auto-correct.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A cross from Ramsey is just too far for Campbell's soup to connect

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks for the update. The vanilla soft serves have been a bunch of nice Geuye's. No wonder why they're bottom.

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Too easy, there. Arsenal play their way through Arsenal as if they're on the training pitch. Ozil feeds Ramsey and he taps home. 0-2!

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! EASY PEASY AS RAMSEY STARTED IT AND FINISHED IT. RAMSEY TACKLED GANA JUST OUTSIDE HIS OWN BOX. THEO LED THE BREAK WITH HIS PACE THEN OZIL GOT A PASS FROM THEO AND PASSED FOR RAMSEY TO EASILY TAP IN.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ramsey was doing his best Magnus Magnusson impression. " I've started , so I'll finish!"

9:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice one, mate! Any of three could have scored there.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Villa look more like a Swiss League team . Guess why.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers mate. The Gunners are like a Swiss League team . Guess why.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Trevor Sinclair wins a corner off of Kos. Villa's first of the match?

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner from Veretout is headed wide by E.F. Hutton at the near post. That was never going to concern any of the Gooners.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time.

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

Villa will just want to get into the dressing room and curl up in the fetal position. Apart from a bright first five minutes, this has been a really poor showing. I expect them to get booed off.

9:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And there it is - boos ring Villa Park. The Villa faithful deserve better.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A superb finish by Theo, but thankfully for Villa it won't count because he's offside and that's ti for the first half as the Gunners are two up at Villa Park.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It would have been more , but the Gunners never really got into to first gear.

9:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from Villa Park.

9:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just read on facebook that the great Gordon Banks has been diagnosed with cancer. Very sad news and hoping there is a cure.

9:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I saw that too - our thoughts go out to the legendary England keeper.

9:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Again - Villa have come out brightly but they have a long way back. Garde looking really grim on the bench.

9:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

High and wide by Veretout, but at least that was a sustained spell of possession from Villa.

9:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Gestede should have done better with that header after a good move from Villa.

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gestede with a header well wide from a decent cross. Remy Garde must have given them the SAF treatment in the dressing room.

9:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice curler from Sanchez, who appears to have Saran Wrap stuck on his face.

9:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carlos Sanchez with a long range effort that's plucked out of the air by Cech. Villa have made a decent start to the second half.

9:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That could describe any Villa player, Nice one,mate.

9:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Villa are the leftovers of the Premiership, eh?

9:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud worked hard to win a corner. He wanted it more than Okore and that right there typifies the lack of effort from Villa players over the course of the season.

9:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It seems that way, but of course , it depends upon their results against the teams in the bottom half of the table. Something will need to drastically change for Villa to have any chance of avoiding a trip to ER next season..

9:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal have really taken the foot off the gas.

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

At least Villa are giving a better effort this half. Remy Garde must have said something in his halftime talk to spark that

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's hard to get motivated against a much weaker opponent.

9:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! The closest Villa have come to scoring. A nice pass to Hutton down the right and his good cross was headed inches over by Trevor Sinclair

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carles Gil is on for Gestede. I agree with Le Socks that it's tactical because Garde is going for technique in place of brute force.

9:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gil has a shot blocked by Kos on a Villa break.

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well over by Veretout after the Gunners failed to clear a cross from Gil.

9:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm not surprised that Gestede got the hook - he looked poor.

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

The danger for Villa is here is that Arsenal can break with pace at any time.

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

And they nearly did again there.

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners go on a similar break to their second goal , but it doesn't come off this time./

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A nice effort from Bacuna that's inches over as he cut ion from the left

9:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with both statements even though that Villa change was tactical too.

9:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A double substitution from Arsene as the players may be feeling the effect of the midweek CL match. it's Gibbs for Campbell's soup and the Ox for Theo.

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hutton would do well to shut his trap. He's begging for a card and the ref is not exactly his friend.

9:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's smart. The Ox is better at holding play than is Theo.

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. Also, he can run at a tired Vanilla soft serve defense.

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kos heads out a cross from Hutton for a Villa corner.

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hutton heads off a Gunner for another Villa corner.

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Merte heads out for take three.

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kos heads out for take four

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This time it's taken short and the cross is headed out by Kos that leads to a long range effort that was never Gana trouble Cech as it was well over.

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think you would agree with me that this is more like a Swiss League match than a BPL match. The Villa defense has more holes than Swiss cheese while the Gunners have carved them out like a Swiss Army knife. Your thoughts?

9:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It looks like Jack Grealish is about to come on. He was banned from the Villa squad since November 21st for having an LOB night out at a Manc night club. A tad too naughty for Remy's liking.

10:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree - now Sanchez is down needing a bit more Saran Wrap to patch up his injuries.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carlos Sanchez is down from what looked an accidental elbow from Kos. He got it right on the saran wrap. Like Villa, it's not doing the job.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gil shoots well from long range

10:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - nice take and spin and a shot just wide of the mark. He seems more positive but Villa need to get closer to the goal to beat Cech.

10:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Naughty schoolboy Jack Grealish is on finally.

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Grealish is Gana make a comeback as he's on for him in Remy Garde's final roll of the dice . It's in the west Midlands, nit Monte Carlo.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I referred to it as an LOB night out. Remy was not exactly amused.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Villa fans want a penalty for hand ball on Kos off that shot from Gil. They're grasping at straws.

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

What was he doing in a Manc nightclub? Brummie clubs not good enough for him?

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Guzan does well to turn around a deflected effort from the Ox.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nop. They were playing at Goodison Park and I guess the Manc night clubs were closer. However, my bruv said that Manchester is a moire happening place than Birmingham. He described the second city as a gloomy sort of city

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great tackle by Okore on the Ox on a break that resulted from Carlos Sanchez having his pocket picked.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Arsene as Chambers is on for Ozil.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A waste as a foul is called off the corner from the Ox.

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The statto has a strange one for you, mate. A two goal loss for Villa to the Gunners would represent progress as they were outscored by a combined score of a dozen to nil in three matches vs the Gunners last season. That's an aver of a 4-0 loss.

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now it's the final Monte Carlo from Remy as Traore is on for the lively Sinclair.

10:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Scott Sinclair trots off to be replaced by Traore.

10:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The next match at Villa is a claret and Blue Derby on Boxing Day. That makes sense as Villa could be hammered and be out for the count on a knockout punch in the first round.

10:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Down to the last few moments of another dismal outing for Villa. Arsenal invited them on to them in the second half but they ignored the open invitation.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Four minutes of stoppage time. I'm sure both sets of fans would take the final whistle now.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A nice solo run by Adama Traore , but the shot landed into the side netting.

10:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A bit too much trickery from Traore there.

10:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Berlerin heads straight to Guzan off a cross from the Ox.

10:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bacuna slices a clearance over for a Gunner's corner. As if it matters

10:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final whistle blows and the Gunners win 0-2 at Villa Park.

10:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's it - Arsenal are temporarily top of the pops while Villa remain permanently rooted on the bottom.

A timely interception by Gardener to prevent Milner from getting a shot off in the six yard box.

Oh - great chance for Coutinho. Blazed over from 10 yards or so.

A stoppage at SFL as a Spuds player is down .

It was Danny Rose as he's limps back oin the pitch. Also, A spuds player was through on goal.

11:15 AM

11:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well wide by Eriksen from long range

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

Oh - clever flick there by Fletcher let Gardner in. Tried one at the near post but Mignolet was equal to it.

11:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mignolet pushes away a deflected cross from Garener for a Baggies corner on a rare attack for them

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

Benteke has been a real disappointment. We always wondered what he'd do at a bigger club. The answer is - not a lot.

11:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gardener could not connect from a cross from McLean. He would have had a free header.

11:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

United considered signing him last summer. I'm glad they did not.

11:21 AM

GOAL !!! JORDAN HENDERSON GIVES POOL THE LEAD.

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

GOAL! Jordan Henderson sweeps home after a sumptuous move from Coutinho with a lovely knock-down by Lallana.

1-0 Pool!

11:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The goal came off an extremely long possession, then the Baggies were caught out as Lallana headed down a cross from Coutinho for Henderson to easily score from close range

11:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This goal should settle the home fans as the Baggies were threatening for the first time this match and had a couple of chances. Now the Baggies will be forced to change their game plan.

11:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Beneteke is playing like a United player because he sucks!

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

That will leapfrog Liverpool over Watford and West Ham but still behind Palace on GD in 7th. You would expect better from Pool. Are they really that big a club? Or are they living on past glories?

Spurs would go above United into 4th with a win
Still don't know why they can't win the league
Only lost once this season and that was on the opening day... It was against a crappy team wearing red in Manchester

Indian Summer came to an abrupt end while I was taking Sparky walkies. I was not exactly prepared for it.

The Spuds would be higher up, but they are drawing too many matches. I consider them a dark horse, but not the favorites.

Lallana with a lovely cross but as usual Benteke wasn't attacking it.

Everyone talks about Villa only have 6 points from 16 games. They won at Dean Court on the opening day. That means they have 3 points from 15 points!!!

The closest the Spuds came to scoring as Rob Elliott did well to turn around a long range effort headed for the upper 90.

Benteke tries to make up for his crapness with an acrobatic effort.

Better from Beneteke as he chested down a cross and volleyed just wide.,

A crap vid , but the near post header from Dier looks like it may have deflected off a Toon defender.
