Fergie’s Fault, Moyes Out – Invisible Investment – Part 2 of 3

The United end for the 2011 Champions League Final

In the second of his three part series Red Devil’s excile Michael Moss speaks about the recent goings ons at Old Trafford; Invisible Investment. After that May crazy night in Moscow, rumours were rife that Ronaldo wanted a transfer to Real Madrid. The media were obsessed by it, but it came to nothing. Record signing Dimitar Berbatov joined with minutes to go on transfer deadline day. Promising full backs, Fabio and Rafael, the soon to be sold Tosic and De Laet from Stoke also joined the ranks. However, the biggest Portuguese star to departe Old Trafford was Ferguson’s assistant,… Read more »

Sky Sports Super 6 Round 41

Sky Sports Super 6

Fulham 2-0 Hull Fulham have shown real signs of some fight since winning at Villa Park and their run in on paper gives them a great chance of survival. Hull haven’t managed a single point on the road since battering Cardiff 0-4 two months ago. I fancy Fulham to take this one 2-0. Stoke 1-3 Tottenham correct result 2 points Following their toothless thrashing at Anfield Spurs seem to have found their shooting boots, hitting the back of the net 11 times in the 3 subsequent matches. Stoke have been on a decent run of form themselves, I think Spurs… Read more »

Fergie’s Fault, Moyes Out – The Glazer Invasion – Part 1 of 3

Luhzniki Stadium before the Final in 2008

In the first of a three part series co-founder Michael Moss speaks about the recent goings ons at Old Trafford; Fergie’s Fault, Moyes Out – The Glazer Invasion David Moyes is no longer manager of Manchester United. It was a rather sharp, yet predictable exit. In truth the demise of Manchester United started debatably many years ago, not with the appointment of David Moyes, however, the sheer class between arguably the best manager that ever lived and Moyes was too much to cover the cracks that Ferguson had been papering over for a number of years previously. The aim… Read more »

Recently final approval for Southend United’s long awaited new stadium came through meaning work could start within the next month. We caught up with Jai from the Shrimpers ‘All at Sea Fanzine’ to get his thoughts on a big chapter opening in Southend’s history. The Groundsman: Its been 15 years since the plans were drawn up – do you think they’ll ever come to fruition?! Jai: There have been plans for a new stadium for Southend for almost 30 years now and fans are deeply pessimistic that the current chairman can deliver on his promises. As a club we have… Read more »

Sky Sports Super 6 Round 40

Sky Sports Super 6

Aston Villa 1-0 Southampton I’m torn on this one, Southampton have been very up and down over the last few months struggling for consistency and Villa’s home form in general has been awful. Both sides are missing key players; Benteke for Villa and Rodriguez possibly Boruc still for Saints. Regardless of form if memory serves me correct Saints have a terrible record at Villa Park and i’ll think the home side will sneak a 1-0 win. Cardiff 2-2 Stoke correct result 2 points Stoke have been one of the form sides in the league over the last couple of months… Read more »
