The Traditional Curtain Raiser... The Charity Shield!

The Football season is finally back. Even though it was an odd number year and no WC or EC to follow...we still had quite a lot of footer to follow during the summer but the real stuff starts this weekend. The Charity Shield(still) gets us going with the League Champs Chelsea take on Cup Winners Arsenal. Can the Arse beat Chelsea at Wembley again?
Of course, Mighty Leeds visit newly promoted Bolton for the nightcap

Morning, UWS. Thanks for getting us started this morning. I'm here for the duration.

8:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I am aching after shifting wheelbarrows full of stones yesterday and have more to do today BUT for now... I am sitting in Bob's chair ready for today's festivities. I have the Test Match already going on WatchESPN, Fox's pregame starts in five minutes and then to Bolton

8:25 AM

I was able to get the ESPN3 link going yesterday for the Norwich v. Fulham match, after some struggling. It was blocking me all Friday afternoon but somehow it allowed me in then. Hoping for the best this morning.

Ominous news for the Gunners. I wouldn't be surprised if both Alexis and Beaker left the club before the beginning of the season, leaving Arsenal with some big holes to fill.

Fox's show is starting now... they will be going to commercial in about 30 secs

Repeat of the Cup Final for the first time since Man Utd Chelsea in 07
Chelsea luckily won the Cup Final
United got revenge in C. S.
Giggs gave United the lead but Malouda tied it up
United won on penalty kicks 3-0
Ferdinand, Carrick and Rooney all scored for United
Pizarro, Lampard and Wright-Phillips all missed

8:33 AM

Of course, Untied are holders of the Shield as I type

8:36 AM

Rubbish coverage from Fox as usual with the likes of Mario Melchiot in the studio. Hate them.

8:38 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

At least they didn't go to commercial for a while!


They are all on the west coast. They had to get up at 3 o'clock to get to the studio in time... PUT YOUR STUDIO ON THE EAST COAST!
New York City is a decent enough place to have a studio

No surfing on the East Coast, mate. They love the LA lifestyle too much.

United take on Real Madrid on Tuesday
I hope I will be able to watch it. I have Jury duty that day. Such a bummer. I called on Friday and have to show up on Tuesday morning. I hope I can leave early. I also have a job interview on Wednesday for the Siena Soccer Club Asst. Coach position. I already have the position but still have to go thru the process!
The Nocitos are taking over the Saints. Matt is a student, I am in the men's program and Tom in the women's

Good morning Bob and UWS. Here to join you for the double header. Read the comments and agree with both of you that FOX is horrible.

Wishing the Nocitos the best in continuing the great tradition at Sienna.

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

Lacazette is the bloke I'll be watching the closest today. If he looks to be a decent replacement for replacement for Alexis, maybe Arsenal can do something this season. Arsenal have been missing a 25 goal a season player since RVP left to join you lot.

Good old Bob Wilson out on the pitch greeting the players. He looks like a midget next to Mert.

Cheers Bob and Dave.

I was reading about the Gunners new signing when I read La Cazette. Do either of you read that paper?

Bob Wilson and Zola meeting the teams... Zola should be hiding for what he did with Birmingham last season

Leeds will be on Watch ESPN four times this month!

Today at Bolton

Wednesday vs Port Vale.

The late match at the SOL on the 19th

The late match at Forest on the 26th.

Then the international break

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

Lacazette seems to be the major signing for the Gunners. I don't really trust Arsene to know a good striker when he sees them. I reckon that Morata is the more reliable striker signing this summer. He'll rack up the goals for the Blues for sure.

8:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Here is GSTQ... do they really need a singer? 93,000 fans is good enough

Nice of Zola to de-hat

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed about Zola . A horrible job at St. Andrews and we're not talking golf. Was Bob Wilson the one wearing the baseball cap?

8:59 AM

Sounds good - I hope that the website will work for me like it did yesterday. The stream was really good.

A Moment of silence.

I have a quiz question for both of you. What record does Forest Green hold now that they have been promoted to the Football League?

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Typical modern footie.

9:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Very true.
I saw some of the match yesterday
Spurs didn't open up the top tier.
That won't happen for league games, right?

9:08 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

How did Arsenal not score there?
The cross really didn't hit anyone
A lost art

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

Oh - Iwobi did well to breeze by Sideshow but then was under confident about using his left peg to cut it back. Shame.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I read about a missed opportunity for the Gunners in La Cazette after great work down the left by Iwobi and the Side Show being clown schooled.

9:09 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Welbeck with a header chance...couldn't get any power behind hit

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Granit found Welly well in the box but he was always falling backward on the header, so no power.

9:10 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

At the end of the last century and beginning of this one, I couldn't imagine actually on the Gunners' side

9:10 AM

I expect the Spuds to be challenging for the title and playing their typical stuff now that the Wmebley jinx has been lifted.

only undefeated team in the league history

9:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That is true, Bob. but not the answer in mind. A hint is that the record is the smallest at something.

9:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Correct, UWS, but the hint is what I'm looking for. That may help.

9:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They have the shortest manager in the football league?

9:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This playing around at the back to keep possession in moronic!

I don't get it! Why put yourself under unwarranted pressure

Defenders are normally not as skillful as attackers. If they lose the ball or pass it badly...it's a goal!


WHEN IN DOUBT... KICK IT OUT

9:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Huh? Did I get it right?

9:21 AM

LOL, mate. You will be interested to read that their manager, Mark Cooper is the son of LUFC legend , Terry.

Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice ball through from Cesc to Wiliian. Run out for a corner.

9:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry, UWS. Nobody has mentioned the correct answer yet.

Decent effort

9:24 AM

Oh - Great stuff from Lacazette throughout that move, turning and spraying some excellent balls before curling a shot onto the post.

9:24 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!!! The Gunners had a shot come off the post. I missed it , but read about it in La Cazette.

9:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Forest Green are the only team to have a color in their name!!

9:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

No. That is not the answer. It's the smallest number of something.

9:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They have the smallest ballboys in the league?

9:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

La Cazette is a great read. I just discovered that Marcos Alonso was booked for a foul from behind.

9:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry, but not the answer.

9:28 AM

Moses may not have parted the Red Sea, but is tackled for a Chelsea corner that lead to action in the Gunners box until play is stopped. Cahill elbowed Merte in the nose.

What's going on with Santi Caz? He appears to be in a suit on the bench. Is he injured?

9:32 AM

Old Trafford is very close. They then show the Etihad which is 7 miles away

9:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well done, UWS. You are absolutely spot on. Forest Green is located in Nailsworth, which has a population of 5,794. To put things in perspective that's about 60 percent of the population of Mildenhall and not much more than Lakenheath Village. It shows what a great accomplishment Forest green achieved.

The new boy at the back Kolasinac is getting an earlier start to this season than he might have predicted.

That's it for Merte as he's replaced by the Bosnian, Kalisinic.

Amazing! Great trivia question, mate.

9:35 AM

Thanks, UWS. Smallest to have a Football League team. Accrington Stanley and the Real Dons , who play at Kignstonian's Kings Meadow have actually have smaller capacities

Monreal is now the central player of a very shaky looking back three for the Arsenal. I'd be having Morata on quickly, if I were Conte.

Another yellow for Chelsea dive at Wembley

9:39 AM

GOAL !!!! JUST AS I WALK IN THE HOUSE MOSES GIVES CHELSEA THE LEAD. A CORNER WAS HEADED OUT THEN HEADED BACK IN BY CAHILL AND MOSES SMASHED THE BALL PAST CECH

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess that was perfect timing.

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

Poor time for Arsenal to give that goal up. But plenty of time for them to get it back.

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

Oh - that was another dicey moment for the Arsenal at the back.

10:10 AM

Chelsea win another corner. Taken short and a Fab cross is missed by Cech, but headed away then Bats shoots straight to Cech.

10:10 AM

Bellerin has a cross headed away then the shot is walked in like an Egyptian, but halfway to Hertfordshire.

Perhaps it was meant as a shot.

10:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, UWS. My answer to that statement is that I've seen those given

10:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Welbeck fails to get a shot off!

Are defenders just better at blocking or is the attacker being naff

10:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Unusual keeping by Cech who came a far way out of his box to clear even though the Nacho was in better position to clear.

10:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Probably some of both.

10:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kate's favorite Olivier Giroud is about to make his Wembley appearance.

10:27 AM

Giroud and Walcott about to come on

I would think The Gazette and Welbeck to come off

10:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lacazette making way. He had a few flashes but no goals.

10:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What is the point of Theo Walcott at this point?

10:27 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

It is the Gazette but Iwobi off and Wellie still on

10:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just read about a French swap in La Cazette. Ollie on in his place. Also Theo for Iwobi. Like for like in both cases.

10:28 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Walcott and the Ox have both been disappointing

10:28 AM

Arsene may be advertising Theo so he can be put in the shop window.

Arsene should have shopped him years ago when Theo might have brought in some dosh. Who would want him now?

The free kick comes to nowt after a little dink in from Sideshow.

10:30 AM

A training ground routine doesn't work as a chipped free kick by Side Show is headed out then Marcos Alonso volleys tamely to Cech

10:31 AM

He could go to a team like the Hammers , Saints , or Baggies. They are at his level. Would you take him at ER?

When was the last time you saw Arsenal score a goal like that? They've rolled back the years to the George Graham era with that one.
