The Prem is Back!

Welcome back to your Saturday mornings, chaps - it felt as if that International Break would never end, right? Well, the Premiership is back with a bang. We start early doors with one of the biggest fixtures of the season - the Merseyside Derby. That's followed by the usual 10am EST slate of matches in the Prem and the Championship, including Spurs at Turf Moor, ManYoo hosting the Baggies and Chelski v. Palace at the Bridge. We end with the big one - the South Coast Derby. Just kidding - it's Leeds at Reading for all the playoff marbles in the Championship. So pour yourself a cuppa and join me for all the madness this morning, won't you?

Evertonians using recent history as their guide won’t fancy this one at all. The most recent Merseyside derby, played just before Christmas, was settled by a late Sadio Mané smash and grab. Everton’s last visit to Anfield was a four-goal humiliation in which they hardly touched the ball. They’ve not beaten Liverpool since Roy Hodgson was wedged in the away dugout at Goodison with a confused grin spread across his face: that was seven years ago. And they’ve not won on their arch rivals’ turf since the slap-happy days of Sander Westerveld and Franny Jeffers: Kevin Campbell’s winner was 18 years ago. Eighteen years!

There was quite a significant match in the Championship yesterday as Derby defeated QPR 1-0 in Gary Rowett's first match in charge of the Rams.

Quite an atmosphere as there always is in the Mersey Derby.

Thanks, mate. The Mersey Derby was the first match I ever blogged on the LOB and haven't looked back since.

Morning Bob
I thought I was going to be a miss today because Siena were going to have a game in MA today but we are just scrimmaging later on in the day. So, I am here for most of the festivities except when I am on walkies. Poor Shadow didn't get one yesterday. It never stopped raining! Luckily it wasn't snow! Had some overnight Thursday and then it changed to rain and was supposed to turn back to snow.... thankfully it didn't!

Cheers, mate. Glad to help. I guess Wally was rammed out with a some horns up the arse after a run of poor results.

Good morning, UWS. Glad to have you on board. Quite a way to end the international break.

Lots at stake this morning. Liverpool have been in better form recently, with three wins from their last five matches. They would go third temporarily with a win here.

Everton also have three wins from five matches. They start in 7th and would go above Arsenal temporarily with any result this morning. Gunners fans will be hoping for a big Liverpool win.

7:28 AM

Morning, UWS - I hope that the weather holds out for Shadow. It's been raining here since Wednesday!

Morning MUR, great to have you aboard

Not good news out of the United camp... Ibra and Herrera still suspended, Smalling and Jones are out 'long term' and Mata just had a groin injury


Will Martial and Rashford both get a full 90 minutes?
Will Shaw get a game with two defenders out?
WBA at home is the type of game we have struggled in this season.... not lost them but dropped two points to too many times

Celtic could not clinch the SPL title yesterday as Aberdeen won at Crocodile Dundee by a walloping 0-7! That's not a typo!

7:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Foeman's comments about his startling choices for today's match: "We have not adjusted a lot. The game plan for today is not changed. Of course the position of Seamus Coleman has changed, and Mason Holgate is starting. And the same thing has happened with Ramiro Funes Mori and Matthew Pennington. The rest is the same. Of course they are two young players, but I am totally confident in them. It is a big day for everybody, but Pennington is doing really well, I am not afraid to start him in this match.”

Thanks, UWS. Hopefully, the rain lets up for both of you.

Who do United want to win this?
If Liverpool win, there would be a 7 point gap between United and Pool with United having three games in hand and the gap between United and Everton would be 2 with three games in hand


An Everton win, would leave United on 4 points behind but Everton would jump ahead of United



A draw?

Nice finish by Mane

Great stuff from Mane, playing a one-two with Firmino and then driving at the Everton defense. He found a yard or so and fired a left foot shot past Joel.

1-0 Pool!

7:39 AM

Mane oh Mane! What a goal! I guess Toffees players were thinking about Anthony Taylor's mention about his Hallmark store getting ready to open.

Oh - a combination of Joel and Jags clears the ball off the line after Coutinho's curling shot.

Joel Robles parries away a shot from Coutinho that then is headed off the line by Jags to keep the score at 1-0

Into the wall by Baines. Trump would have been pleased to see such a red wall.

7:56 AM

Great memory, UWS - I remember it well. Do you remember the crazy shot that he took, nearly scoring an own goal? It went off the angle and out for a corner.

7:56 AM

Young Tom Davies is the first player booked as Anthony Taylor has had enough.

The free kick from Baines is straight into the wall, after all of that build up from Drury and Beglin.

Bob, didn't you set me up for one of my late goals?

8:00 AM

Pool players were caught ball watching as the corner came off of Ashley Williams, who didn't seem to know too much about it and Pennington smashed home from close range to score his first ever goal for the Toffees.

Tranny one up at the half at Wrexham thanks to an OG by Marx. It must be Groucho since it's so laughable!

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aberdeen won 0-7 at Crocodile Dundee yesterday, delaying Celtic clinching the SPL title. Ether , the Dons were very thirsty to have gone seven up on the road or when Paul Hogan said there's a knife, it was a flimsy plastic one that broke in some vanilla soft serve,

8:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's Barkley's fifth or sixth bad foul. He's lucky not to be off. Yellow for now.

8:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Should have been a straight red, in truth.

8:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Barkley's control was atrocious and then he fouls... they had a chance to break

Lovren is hopping around... he is making the most of it

Was a rotten foul

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barkley gets away with a booking after an awful tackle on Loveren. Not sure why he's complaining.

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

Yeah - I set you up for the equalizer and Stef laid on the pass for the winner, if memory serves.

8:11 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That's what I remember too

8:11 AM

I remember that Collins burned me for pace on one of those goals. I should have chopped him down but he was already in the area.

Jurgen Klopp let's Martin Atkinson, the fourth official, have it.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. That's apart of the game that needs to be eliminated. It's really irritating.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's too bad Anthony Taylor wasn't officiating that match. You would have got away with just a lecture.

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

My favorite moment from that match was when we were 5-4 up in the waning moments. The ball ran out of play by my brother, who was home fro college. The Alconbury players all thought he'd stop it and throw it back to them for a throw. But he just let it roll right by him down the hill. Brilliant!

8:15 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That year, I scored in all the games. I scored more than half the teams goals... but I was never man of the match
Scoring four.. winning the championship...surely MoM... walked in the school... MoM.... Lakenheath Lancers!!

The defense was a paper bag.. a wet one!!

I'm not bitter!!!!

Great memories. Was Bob MOTM in that 5-4 win?

8:16 AM

LOL! I wish. And I wasn't the MOTM in that season closer at London Central either. Let that Tehrani kid score a hat-trick, although he did elbow me in the face for one of them.

Thanks, Bob. I'm not sure we can take the Baggies for granted, especially as the speedy Fletch is back in town

I agree - Mou should fire on all targets.

Not sure if this was mentioned but Donny won 5-1 at Grimsby and could get promoted if Stevenage don't get the required result

PALACE TIE IT UP

Chelsea were given a taste of their own medicine as Palace won a tackle by their own corner flag. A long clearance made it to Beneteke, who went on a solo run and played a one two with Zaha, then dummied Courtois and cheekily lobbed it over him into an empty net

Not sure about your reasoning
