hi

I agree with Beach. City were not the team we have seen these last few seasons. I think the missed penalty affected their mood and they just played for a draw; a tactic that went astray.

I agree that City will be OK in the second leg. I think they have been
shaken by Spurs and they will not make the same mistakes next time.

I too think the Ref was far to soft on some of the fouls that went unpunished.

Cheers

Mike

City's midfielders played very agressively all evening , very often playing the man more so than the ball. Fernandinho was lucky to have had a surprisingly lenient referee in charge. Silva and Gundogan were not at all as enterprising as usual. Spurs , on the other hand attacked at every opportunity despite City's tactics (The first time I've seen them adopt such a strategy). Delph seemed to delay his tackle until Kane had knocked the ball away. Should have been noted by the referee also.
Still, City should have enough to win out, especially if they can score early in the 2nd leg ???

hi Steve

Yes Mo was indeed lucky. These are the breaks that all teams need to win trophies,

Last night In the United game against Barcelona we got nothing from the ref whilst Barcelona seemed to be able to foul as often as they wished.
Jessie Lingard got a yellow card as soon as he came on as sub. All he did was stand with his hands held high while that butcher Vidal just kicked everything red above the ground. . Also we had two good shouts for penalties, one of which resulted in the goal.

It seems to be that Barcelona will be firm favourites to win at home.

Hi

Liverpool 2 Porto 0

A good game to watch. Liverpool scored very early which helped to settle them down and .....hey Presto....another was rattled in to settle the win. I thought that Liverpool should have scored more as they have an away tie still to come.

Spurs 1 Man City 0.

City were only at half pace and tried to control the game but became unstuck to a great individual goal to Son.

City will have to improve in the second leg.

Hi Steve

Yes A great game with both teams attacking furiously. I have to feel a little sorry for Southampton who played out of their skin.

But Mo Sala's amazing goal knocked the stuffing out of them. Liverpool will be difficult to play and must be now favourites to win the Title.
City are taking on a huge task in going for 4 trophies. I don't rule out the Premier League though and They are capable if Liverpool slip up at all. Like you say they don't look like giving anything away.

Cracking game yesterday in Semi Final of FA Cup.!!!!

And Everton may have given United an outside chance of top four but they have a rocky set a games left to play.

Hi

Man United 1 V Wolves 2

This result will almost certainly make it impossible for United to get into the top 4. Especially as their competitors won last night.

They only have themselves to blame as they handed this game over to a good Wolves team.

We played some good stuff but made too many silly errors. The ref did not help when he awarded the equaliser which was clearly off side.
The standard of referees is vey poor. Several teams have suffered recently. We have had 2 in the last 3 games,

Hi Steve

You atr right about the nervy games by the top teams - possibly excluding Man City ....this week-end.

I was at Old Trafford on Saturday. We were very lucky to win. Whatford were far better but they don't have a Rashford !!What a great goal.
We did have a stone cold pen turned down but hey....with some of our refs this happens in most games.

Yes Robby and Trent were great as always. I have been lauding them for most of the season.

Watched Liverpool and it was a good game to watch. A bit of luck at the end but you don't win the league without it.

How many times did Fergy have lucky breaks ?? I remember quite a few. Liverpool deserve to win the league but City looked good on Saturday. It's going to be a great run for all the top boys.

Nervy at the top! Man U, Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea all scrabbling unimpressive wins, but hey ho.

Tell you what, though, Mike. Trent and Andy Robertson are absolute class. Andy's cross for Bobby Firmino's goal was the best cross I've seen all season. Trent can take a sixty-yard pass, kill it dead and, within seconds, whip in a devastating cross. You can't give those blokes space on the wings but, at the same time, you can't give space to the front three who stay narrow. But, above all, Virgil's piece of defending to stop Sissoko shooting properly AND to prevent him from passing to Son was as good as it gets. Knight that man. Good game too!

hi beech

Totally agree with your comments about England's attacking against
Monte negro. Apart from the first 20 minutes when they were very slow in passing and not being very aggressive. But after that was a great performance. Especially from the young players.

I agree about the way in which the media are hyping it all up.

A great performance..... now back to the Premier League. Some great games at week end.

OK, Montenegro not world beaters exactly but, that was the best England attacking performance I've seen for many a long year. However, I thought that Chris Sutton, in his best David "Fwrost" imitation, went a tad OTT. This is the kind of burden that too many commentators load on the England team, year after year, Competition after competition,and pile un-necessary pressure on them. Sure they were the olden times Invincibles when International Football was in it's infancy but, that will not recur too often for any country. There are many teams nowadays that can beat everyone else at certain tournaments. Good luck England , for the rest of the matches.

Hi

The Euro Championship is under way.

England 5 - Czech Republic 0

Watched the whole game.

After a very dull start England went ahead through Sterling and just before the interval a penalty was converted by Kane. The Czech team came out and attacked bur England had too much for them and ran out winners. Stirling ended up with a hat-trick Great start.

Wales won and Scotland lost.

There will be more games for anyone that wants to see tem.
We go Montenegro next.

ted off the pitch. After the recent improvement mysteriously they were back passing back and seeming to have lost any pace.
Pogpba was invisible, Martial could not make any progress and in general the whole team was " off colour "
In contrast Wolves were organized and knew what they were doing. they are a great team and I think they will take some stopping.


Liverpool have just scored.... Mane of course.

Bayern 1 - Liverpool 3

Great game to watch. Liverpool were by far the better side. They play as a team and have a plan. Every Liverpool player contributed to this great result. The two outstanding players were Virgil - surely the best centre back in the World. And Mane was exciting to watch as he scored his goals.

Liverpool now go into the quarter finals and if they play like this they must have a great chance to go all the way.

Just about to watch Liverpool and Man City play their respective games. Both on at the same time so will be changing channels regularly.

I watched Liverpool play Zagreb in the Under 19's of the European Cup. It was an entertaining game which was decided on penalties which Zagreb won. Some very good players in both teams. Looks good for Both Clubs as such good talent.

Good luck to both City & Liverpool.

hi Steve

Yes the bubble had to burst sooner or later. It's been a great run and our season looks much better than when Mourinho was in charge.

Arsenal are a tough team to beat at home and we had the chances but did not take them. Plus a penalty that never should have been. We are still some way yet from being able to field our best team.

We have a daunting run in to the end of the Season so we will need the best team to be available.

I was pleased that even though we were losing Ole had the strength of character to call on a very young player to get some experience in playing in the Premier League. Mason looks a good prospect.

I watched Liverpool and even though they gave away a silly goal they settled down and won very easily. They, like United missed some chances but Liverpool had the bottle to keep at it and they got 4 to win a place back at the top.

Watched Chelsea - they got an undeserved late goal.

Cheers

Reality check for Man U, even though they played well. Places 3 and 4 in the top four looks like a gritty battle coming up. Liverpool back to something like it after that disgraceful shenanigans in the first few minutes which not only gave Burnley a goal but also got Allison booked for his justifiable rage (unless he swore: I hope not as he's a good Catholic lad like me). Burnley are not the kind of elegant Burnley I revered as a little lad...

Hi John

I agree that who-ever gets promoted to the Premier League will find it difficult to stay there. So most teams do aim purely to stay up until they get to grips with what the experience of being in the Premier league is all about.

Wolves this year are a revelation and hold a position in mid-table. History tells us that most clubs that get promoted don't stay there more than 2 years. It is a rocky road.

Sure, Mike. The Championship can be a difficult league to get out of and for those that follow (even if just keeping track like me), this year is particularly interesting. In one sense, there is more there than (unless we count in Leicester) than the Premiership where there are few clubs to look consider at the top. On the other hand, I think after getting there, maintaining some sort of mid table stability (sort of thing I'd imagine Norwich would aim for) in the Premiership is another huge step and not one Norwich managed in their last couple of promotions...

Explaining how PSG came to lose, the Guardian wrote this, which I love:

"In part, it’s true, that’s down to the frankly inexplicable magic of Solskjær, Dorian Gray as the Milky Bar Kid, living his eternal 1999. But it’s also down to the fact that PSG are the opposite of what Solskjær represents. He is romance and fun and loyalty and doing your job even if it frustrates you; open them up [PSG] and where the heart should be you’ll find a fetid roll of banknotes. When it comes to the crunch, doing it to enhance the reputation of a faraway state seems not to stir the loins. We’ve seen this before, of course, most notably when a 4-0 lead was squandered two years ago...."

Hi Steve Couldn't agree more with you.

The introduction of Jurgen Clopp is a breath of fresh air in the Premier League and indeed in Europe.

Man united have not really entertained since Fergie left.

Moyse, Van Gaal and recently Mourino lacked the ability to create a top team. Let's hope that Ole gets the call at Old Trafford.

Last night I noticed Tergie having a long serious chat with Ed Woodward. Fergie has made it obvious that he wants Qle to be offered the job.

There are some important games coming up this week-end. Can't wait !!

Definite penalty . Steve is right. T guy deliberately and stupidly played the ball. The ref had checked it out TWICE.

But hey what about the game United did something that has never been done before in the Eur Championship, They came back "from the dead"
against the favourites to won the title.

Lukacu scored two more to make it 6 in the last 3 games.

Remember they played this game with 10 regular players out injured and pogba banned. they had 4 teenagers who had never played in a big game like this.

They played to Ole's plan ......and it worked.

Huge credit must go to the whole team.

Hi Sen, hope you are "listening"   

Last week I saw a guy talking about the Championship ( Norwich etc).
is going.

He said that this Season there have been 29 changes in the top two places. He described how this League is the most difficult one to win. There are many good teams that keep keep on beating each other and he reckoned that even at this late stage in the season that about 15 teams have a chance to get in the top 4,!!!
Norwich and Leeds are the front runners to be Champions but several teams can still challenge for this.

I do keep a watch-out on this situation and find it fascinating.

Hi

I don't think either team is playing at their best. I take in all of Steve's points but .....do I detect hope in there?

Another thing to consider is that City has more titles to win and this could be a factor. plus City lost arguably their best player and they have not announced how long he could be out. I refer to de Bruyne.

There again City have much more experience in landing a Premier League Title.

Take your choice but it's going to be close.

City have been there, read the book watched the film and got the T shirt (and the medals)

Liverpool who have played some wonderful football this year seem to be "bottling" it.

I hope for Steve's sake I am wrong but if I were a gambling man my money would be on City.

HI

Man United 3 V Southampton 2.

I was lucky enough to get in a box with my son and his Dutch colleagues.

This match crackled from the kick off until the final whistle.

United could easily have been three up in the first 10 minutes. But
Southampton had come to win this game and counter-attacked and pressed United giving them little space. Against the run of play they scored a fantastic goal and continued to attack. They could have had two penalties with close decisions.

In the second half United opened up and a great goal by young Pereia ( his first) put them back in the hunt. Lucacu made it 2-1 and Southampton equalised with another fine goal. Lucaco put Unided ahead
and Pogba missed a late penalty.

Great game.

Now getting ready for 3 matches this afternoon with the mouthwatering prospect of seeing Everton and Liverpool. Phew !!!

Cheers

Mike

hi Steve

Yes Liverpool were back to their early seasons form. They pressed Watford and attacked dangerously ( for Watford ) with many attempts. The big hitters were back to form and goals just had to come as Watford buckled. Good to see Mo impressive and Mane getting back on the scoreboard. His second goal was outrageous and entertaining at the same time, Trent was back and in my opinion was man of the match.

City were scrambling and just made it through.

I watched Tottenham v Chelsea. Spurs were not a match for a
re-juvenated Chelsea. It was a tough encounter with flashes of agreesion from both teams. Harry Kane was not in the game at all and the second Chelsea goal was a farce. They will need to do better if they want to get into Europe. Arsenal won 5-1 and with Chelsea back and Man U winning, anything can happen.

United were hard hit by injuries and had to male 8 changes. Lucaku scored twice but even at 2 nil United did not have it all their way. Some wayward finishing helped United and until Young scored a third goal, Crystal Palace looked dangerous. This United team don't give in and in the end JUST scrambled home. I hope they can get some of the injuries sorted as we will need to to get into the top four.

Alltogether it was a good night for NW England teams

CHEERS

Mike

PS I wouldn't bet against Liverpool.
