The Sack Race Heats Up

A very good Saturday morning to all of you. I'm here after a very long, hard week at work looking forward to some relaxing Premiership watching. There are several people who won't be relaxing, though: Premiership managers. This is traditionally the time of year that clubs begin to shed their managers. There are several bosses under pressure this morning. My money is now on Francesco Guidolin, Swansea's hapless gaffer, who faces an in-form Liverpool early doors. If they get mullered today, it could be curtains for the Italian. But it could also be David Moyes, whose Sunderland host West Brom at 10am EST. And what about Mike Phelan? He's not actually the full-time boss at Hull yet but a bad loss to Chelsea could move him along sharpish.

Join me to follow the sack race this morning won't you?

Good morning, Bob. I had a long , hard week too. Add Sparky to the sack race too. Hughes that is.

There is a lot of buzz around Liverpool these days, but are they real deal title contenders? They have won at both Arsenal and Chelsea and played Spurs off the park at their place too. The front three of Firmino, Coutinho and Mane are buzzing. But their leaky defense doesn't inspire confidence.

7:25 AM

Teams coming out at the Liberty now:

Swansea (4-3-3) Fabianski; Rangel, van der Hoorn, Amat, Naughton; Fer, Cork, Britton; Routledge, Borja, Sigurdsson.
Substitutes: Nordfeldt, Mawson, Taylor, Fulton, Ki, Barrow, McBurnie.

Liverpool (4-3-3) Karius; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Lallana, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Firmino, Coutinho.
Substitutes: Mignolet, Sturridge, Klavan, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Origi.

Cheers, Bob. Add an evil Slav to the sack race too. I guess it's a four horse race and a close one at that

Citeh are the main title contenders , but Pool seem to be their main challengers. Who picked those two teams?

Peep peep! Liverpool, in red, kick off from left to right. Swansea are all white on the afternoon.

7:31 AM

They're off from the Liberty. A pool win moves them up to second place, two points behind Citeh.

All Liverpool early doors.

Just a reminder of the choices for the sack race:

Ronald Koeman - Blue Devil
David Moyes - Gooner, Someone Said, Yellows
Alan Pardew - MUR
Mike Phelan - Red Devil, Swansong
Francesco Guidolin - Red Dragon, The Saint
Tony Pulis - UWS
Sean Dyche - West Ham Rising
Walter Mazzarri - Simon

The first chance falls to Swansea. Routledge on the right curls a lovely cross over the head of Matip to find the unmarked Borja, who heads over from six yards. He should have scored.

7:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! And Swansea have taken an early lead. Really poor defending at the corner and when the ball got knocked back across by Borja, it dribbled over to Leroy Fer who won't score an easier goal.

1-0 Swans!

7:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What was I saying about Liverpool's leaky defense?

7:39 AM

Swansea's midfielders seem first to the loose ball so far.

7:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lallana is down getting treatment now - more bad new for Klopp.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm back. A poor goal for Pool to concede.

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

Sigurdsson floats a high, dainty ball over the top of the Liverpool defence to find Cork, who slides forward and helps the ball towards goal as it drops over his shoulder inside the box. He can’t get any pace on it, however, and it’s a comfortable save from Karius.

7:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Welcome back, mate. Your back just in time to see Daniel Sturridge replace the injured Adam Lallana. Will he be available for Gareth Southgate's England squad to meet Malta and Slovenia?

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gooner was correct. Gareth Southgate is the interim England manager

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Borja should have had another. Free header six yards out. Put it wide.

7:56 AM

Fred has a prediction. You will love this one. He predicts that Moyes will be sacked and replaced by Fat Sam/

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great chance for Borja, who seems to be an aerial threat.

8:01 AM

LOL! Nice one, Fred. I think Fat Sam is looking at a lifetime ban from football, fortunately.

Decent hit from distance by Firmino but smothered by Flappy.

First shot on target for Pool as Flappy saves a long range effort from Firmino that was anything , but firm

Into the wall by Coutinho then

GOAL !!!FIRMINO FIMRLY TIES IT UP AS MILNER HOOFED UP THE REBOUND AND IT GLANCED OFF OF FIRMINO'S HEAD

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

It all came from a rubbish free kick from Coutinho. Swansea switched off thinking that the danger was over and when the ball was lofted back in, Firmino was alone to nod home from eight yards.

1-1!

Another Pool goal and they're only two points behind Citeh. I'm catching up, mate.

I picked Pool to win it and they don't have the distraction of Euro footie, so that will help. Pool host United when the international break ends, so that will let us know ,who the real title contenders are

A nice birthday wish, mate. How kind.

9:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Liverpool move up to second in the table. They started poorly but the injury to Adam Lallana forced a reshuffle, and moving Philippe Coutinho into midfield sparked them into life. They were deserved winners after completely dominating the last hour of the game.
