    that 3rd keeper was lucky not to see red, surly conceding that pen was denying a clear goalscoring oppertunity?

    No, the pen was given for the foul, although the striker (yak?) had his back to goal, and wasn't in a position to shoot, and coates was backtracking,
    not a goalscoring opportunity.

    Lol just noticed Arsenal's third choice Mannone has been keeping Liverpool's Gulasci on the bench at Hull. Small world or what.

    good point. speaking about coates, exceptional talent, no? Surely he has to be ahead of Carra.

    Tevez starts for City!!!

    But the main events will be going on at the bottom.

    Wigan and Wolves should both get thrashed at home to Man U and Arsenal respectively, but I really hope Swansea can get something at QPR. However, I do fear a QPR win.

    Surprisingly, the opposite happens (probably not "thrashed", but ManU is way too harmless).

    A few weeks ago, a friend told me his dad would get him a new guitar if Wigan stayed up. We laughed at the idea, but now...

    comolli sacked.

    adam johnson is available for 10m. would be a bargain for liverpool imo.

    adam johnson, dzeko/adebayor and de jong would be excellent signings

    just reading through some old posts and found this little nugget of foresight from yours truly.

    strange that!

    Commoli's dismissal is just a kneejerk reaction, the guy has done a fine job. Please explain the thinking behind it somebody? Even the Telegraph seems uncertain.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/fo...d-transfers-and-desperate-run-of-results.html

    and then go on to say

    it absolutely wreaks of scapegoat - the guy has gone out and brought in the targets that he was asked to using the funds available to him. the owners need to grow a pair and have a word with 'king' kenny if they have a problem with recent transfers because he's come out on record and said that they were all his choices.

    United lose another game and we have a title decider like last season except the rivalry's more fierce and there's a lot of pride at stake coz it's a derby.
