Game Changer Sunday

A very good Sunday morning to you, lads! We have a fascinating Sunday morning of Premiership footer ahead of us, with two matches that could very well change the picture of the table. First up, Liverpool travel to WBA, who have the potential to upset Liverpool's quest for European spots. A loss at the Hawthorns could very well let in Everton, United or Arsenal who play later. Then there is the small matter of United v. Chelski. Our Red Devil loving mates will probably be all doom and gloom, but on their day, United are capable of creating a surprise at Old Trafford. Join me for all the fun and games!

Good morning, Bob. It should be quite an interesting Sunday.

Morning, MUR - how are you, mate?

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

As we kick off at the Hawthorns, there’s the potential for all sorts to happen in this one. Well, maybe. There’s the potential for Liverpool to pull a whopping nine points clear of Manchester United, albeit perhaps for only a few hours, and albeit with Jose’s boys having three games in hand. But to do that they’ll have to get over their curious weak spot against not so good teams: since the turn of the year alone they’ve dropped 13 points to Sunderland, Swansea, Hull, Leicester and Bournemouth, but have been fine against, well, the good teams.

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the Hawthorns with Jon Champion and David Prutton on the mics.

Doing just peachy here, mate. Three weeks of the regular semester left plus finals at this end.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Baggies cause Mayhem on a long throw , but Matty Phillips slices the shot . Then Hal Robson-Kanu is offside in a promising position.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

We have six weeks plus finals left. Heading towards summer.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Seems to be a dreary day in Blighty.

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

COME ON YOU BAGGIES!

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

Indeed it is. NBC was trying to do their pitch-side chats with the Robbies standing in the rain.

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

I'd love to see a WBA result today, even though I'm not a fan. There is something irritating about this Liverpool side.

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

Liverpool haven’t exactly started in sparkling form. The match hasn't really settled into a pattern, and that will suit Tony Pulis to a tee.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Pool are a decent side to watch, but it's in United's best interests for the Baggies to win.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If Pool get the opening goal, I wouldn't see a way back for the Baggies because Pulis hasn't set them up for that.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Matty Phillips slices a shot horribly wide the second time this match

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ross County just tied it up against Celtic, who may be taking their foot off the pedal since clinching the SPL title. A draw would put Ross three points above a playoff spot and four above the relegation spot.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I heard that you and Kate have been hosting Brucie . Is he eating you out of house and home?

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! A south American tangle. Yacoub, the Argie gifts possession to Coutinho, the Brazi, who puts through his compatriot , Firmino, who shoots inches wide with just Foster to beat

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hopefully, Foster does not make a horrible error like Forster did yesterday

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

Nah - Brucie is always a very polite guests. He's welcome any time.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Firmino bears the brunt of a tackle for a Pool corner.

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

I didn't catch that late one - what was the Forster clanger?

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The matches BEIN shown on the telly tomorrow.

The 10 AMER is the Tractor Boys vs the Toon and the late one is the Rams vs your beloved Terriers. The match from your house is BEIN show on tape delay at 2 PM EDT.

8:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

WBA are keeping Liverpool honest in the midfield, snapping into challenges quickly and consistently. No real threat from the Reds as a consequence.

8:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shocking that there is no Leeds coverage on BEIn tomorrow - someone should be sacked!

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The match from your house kicks off fifteen minutes earlier than the other matches. Why is that?

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A tad naughty by Lucas on Liverwurst. Lectured by John Moss.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Coutinho volleys well wide and Chadli with an unusual miss kick in the six yard box. Great chance for both sides

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Liverpool get lucky there with the referee blowing for a foul from that corner that looks dangerous.

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

We've always been early birds at the Cottage.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That looked an intentional back pass by the red team. John Moss sees no evil and hears none either.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL, mate! That explains it.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If United make it to the EL semis then this past Thursday would have been the first of five consecutive weeks of Thursday footie due to the Manc Derby. No more Saturday footie till August.

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

James Milner seems to be limping, which could be a double blow for Liverpool: firstly, losing one of their most experienced men, and secondly having to field Alberto Moreno.

9:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hal Robson-Kanu is inches offside off a delightful through ball.

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's a crazy schedule, mate. Good luck to United with what looks to be a tough run in.

9:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Interesting to see that WBA have built a massive screen to block out the gap in between stands in the corner.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Robson-Kanu gets in a great position again , but a soft effort is straight to Minnie.

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Robson-Kanu could have done a bit better with that chance. Still, with half an hour gone, Pulis will be happy to see this still scoreless.

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, mate. I'm not counting on us finishing in an EL position. Our best hope is to win the EL in Stockholm on May 24th.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That would be a huge loss and Moreno is adept at attacking, but not defending.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I didn't notice the screen. I will need to keep an eye on that.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pat Roberts has given Celtic a 1-2 lead at Ross County with about ten minutes remaining. That would leave Ross two points above a playoff spot and three above the relegation spot.

9:09 AM

HI Boys
Back from church just as we are approaching half time

9:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jon Champion mentions the world famous halftime pies. Would your be apple , cherry, or blueberry?

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

The zip and crowd noise has gone out of this one.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. Great to have you on board. You really didn't miss much.

9:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Make mine a chicken tikka masala pie, mate. I like 'em savory and spicy.

9:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS. You've done your Easter Sunday duties; now it's time for some footer, eh?

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Several matches yesterday had dull first halves and came to life in the second. Perhaps the same will happen here.

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds about right. I prefer saucy!

9:14 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Well the pies they are talking about are meat, meat and potato, mince...

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I have yet to figure out what exactly the point of Joel Matip is.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time as Chris Brunt is booked for pulling back Origi.

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

I don't see the EL being the easiest route to the CL. Just start winning in the league!!!



BUGGER 1-0 Pool

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

Chris takes the Brunt of the Referee Moss' ire there, as he picks up the first yellow card of the day.

Apologies for borrowing your pun, MUR.

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

GOAL! Firmino steals in at the back post to score from a free kick. Pulls will be furious about that one.

0-1!

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! THAT'S COSTLY FOR THE BAGGIES AS LUCAS HEADS ON THE FREE KICK FROM MILNER THEN FIRMINO HEADS IN AT THE FAR POST. POOR MARKING AS WELL BY JONNY EVANS.

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

And that's half time - Firmino has changed everything with that back post header.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's halftime with Pool one up thanks to that goal scored seconds ago.,

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

No probs, mate. I was teasing you about the pies. I always remembered the Shepard and mince meat pies. I would pick something to match my personality, which is rather saucy.

9:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Second half is underway

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Matip fouls Robson-Kanu near the corner flag.

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick is cleared and Pool have a free kick near the halfway line.

9:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It all happened in stoppage time at the end of the match between Ross and Celtic . Liam Boyce scored for Ross to make it Desmond at the beginning of stoppage time then Scott Brown was sent off for Celtic in the second minute of stoppage time.

9:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! A superb Pool move ends with Milner missing a sitter. He has a volley land in Row M from three yards out off a great cross from Clyne after a superb pass from Wijnaldum.

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clyne wins a corner off of Brunt. The corner eludes everyone then Origi fouls Jonny Evans.

9:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Sorry I missed the start of the half
Busy doing stuff


I really hope United play well today!

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Origi has a headed goal disallowed for offside. Firmino was the one offside when he headed the cross to Origi

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

Come on you Baggies

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, UWS. You really didn't miss much. The match is identical to the weather.

9:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm back for the last half hour after making Kate an Easter Sunday brekkies.

9:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tony Pulis was telling Jim Morrison to Break on Through Till The End of Time to get the equalizer as he came on in place of Chadli.

9:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, Bob. As I was telling Dave, the match is identical to the weather.

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What on earth was that from Coutinho?

Runned On coming on and the fans from Caracas are going wild!!

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A The final rolls of the dice from Pulis as Runned on is on for Robson-Kanu and James McLean is on for Yacoub.

9:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

A do Rondon don a do Rondon.. come on... score!!

9:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Half a dozen Venezuelan fans were there to welcome Runned ON. Presumably family members that made the long trek,

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jonny Evans booked for a foul on Coutinho. A booking seemed harsh.

9:54 AM

Matip heads wide off the free kick from Milner.

Begovic in goal for Chelsea. A courtly rest ahead of the semis?

10:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't either. Are the starters being saved for Thursday?

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

I suspect that Mou is resting a few. He may be throwing in the towel on today. Or playing for a draw?

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Liverwurst with a stupid foul on Origi just outside the corner of the Baggies box.

10:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's probably a combination of what we both stated.

Shaw has to be given a chance. Darmian just makes stupid fouls

10:06 AM

Ashley Young is United's captain today
Why?

10:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Perhaps Bob is correct about Jose conceding the match or perhaps he wants to help his old mates win the title.

10:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

These three points for Liverpool would mean United would be NINE points behind Liverpool and SEVEN behind City


WBA should have a scored

Useless effort on goal there!

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great through ball had runned on to Matty Phillips , who shot it against Minnie with just the keeper to beat. should have tied it up.

10:08 AM

Like for like as Sturridge is on for Origi.

10:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Don't get conceding the Top Four... very dangerous to put all your eggs in the EL Basket.... still not evening in the semis.... a final is a one off match as well. Very dangerous
I think we won't get there either way


Sturridge on for Lpool

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

Brilliant save by Minnie - saved the three points for Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge coming on. I was about to say something about "fresh legs" but we all know that's not true in Sturbridge's case.

10:09 AM

Pulis's substitutions did not work since Jim Morrison did not break on through to score or assist and the ball has not runned on for any scoring chances.

Terrific through ball from Herrera to Rash and he made no mistake.

11:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Rashford has already had two chances... Would Ibra have been in the same position!

11:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The goal came about because the Sideshow played like Thelma N Luiz. Herrera superbly won a tackle that was never hand ball. His perfect slide rule pass found Rash , who speedily beat Thelma N Luiz and shot past the on rushing Begovic.
