Manchester United – 4 Everton – 0

17/09/2017 Leave a comment

In a couple of hours time, Manchester United will be facing Everton. It will be an emotional game (I think) for two players on each of the opposing teams. First of all, for Wayne Rooney, it will be a return to his old stomping ground, Old Trafford. On the other hand, Romelu Lukaku will be facing his old club, Everton. Everton got quite a shock mid last week when they lost to an Italian club in the Europa League so Ronald Koeman will be desperate to make up for that loss. Manchester United, on the other hand, will be trying to make up the goal difference that Manchester City has over them, after the six goal drubbing of Watford yesterday. So, call it what you will, but this is going to be one intense match!

********** EDITOR’S NOTE after the match **********

What a game it was! Antonio Valencia started the scoring with a thunderous volley in the opening minutes of the game. This was followed by an almost goal in the 64th minute when Juan Mata took a free kick which hit the post! Damn. We could have been two up by then but it was not mean to be. But that changed in the 82nd minute when Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the second goal! Lovely interception by Fellaini that helped it! But that was not all. In the 89th minute, Lukaku took a free kick that bounced off the wall, got bandied around and made it’s way back to Lukaku who scored! 3 – 0! I was going crazy! But that is not all. Martial comes on and then there was a penalty for united when one of our ex-players Morgan Schneiderlin was caught with a handball. A bit unfair if you ask me because the referee pointed to the spot. Martial converted it and it was a final 4 – 0 score!

It was a bit sad when the camera panned towards Rooney a few times. he looked a bit upset to see his team being decimated at his old stomping ground. But that is football. 4 – 0 is the score. Glory glory!

I have been looking forward to this match for some time. It is going t be an epic match. When it comes to the clashes between these two, form , or lack of it, is thrown completely out of the window. the rivalry is so great that there has been known, at least here in Singapore, for friends to become former friends and even couples to break up! Let’s see how it goes at 2130 hrs this evening

Arsenal vs Manchester United

Good match at the Emirates today. Manchester United  won by two goals and Arsenal scored one. It would have made it three if Di Maria had scored that…being too clever as he started a long run towards goal and tried to beat replacement keeper Martinez. It was a bit strange t see Danny Welbeck in Arsenal kit though. We were 7 in the league, Arsenal are number 5. With this 3 point lead we are now at number 4. Let’s keep it that way lads. Glory Glory!

In half-an-hour’s time, it will be the thrilling Manchester Derby at the Etihad Stadium. Apparently, it is going to be one helluva match. Carrick is back apparently, and so is Wayne Rooney. Well, let us see how it goes. Games like these are going to be very exciting to watch!

Manchester United – 1, Chelsea – 1

In a couple of hours, I am going to see my beloved Manchester United take on Chelsea. It is going to be a meeting of two juggernauts but it is also going to be a meeting of “pupil” Jose Mourinho and his “teacher” Louis Van Gaal. There have been lots of nay-says today. Just on Saturday morning, one of my friends, a Manchester United supporter no less, said that Chelsea will win. I told hom that I still believe in Manchester United and I believe that they will win. Oh well, we shall find out, and that right soon.

********** EDITOR’S NOTE **********

What a match it was. Drogba scored first, with a header into the goal from a corner. It was only in the dying minutes of the game when we had a corner and Robin Van Persie scored the equaliser. There were a few fantastic saves from both goalkeepers and for me, Man Of The Match should have been Fellaini. One point each and we live to tell the tale. Still, we kept Chelsea at arm’s length and that I am happy with

Liverpool’s new players? LOL!

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester United

19/05/2013 Leave a comment

In a few hours time, West Bromwich Albion is going to take on Manchester United at The Hawthorns. It is a very sad match for me to watch because this is going to be the very final match for Sir Alex Ferguson as manager of Manchester United. It also marks the end of the Premier League Season 2012/2013. When the new premier league season starts, David Moyes will be in charge. I will update this post about the match after it happens.
