  5. Emphatic win but what was the difference??

    It was a great win but on paper this is not our strongest team - so what did they do differently at Rotherham that we have not seen in previous games. I have looked at the match reports and individual players have been praised but there was not an outright explanation of where this brilliant...

    I Hope Arsene's Wrong

    I HOPE ARSENE'S WRONG How fantastic was this weekend's football? There was Arsenal's emphatic destruction of Everton and Liverpool's surprising stumble at White Hart Lane. Manchester United and Chelsea got their three points, but only after being made to work for them by two teams that no-one...

    Flakey Brazil Squeeze Through

    Brazil 1-0 South Africa Alves 88 If Brazil are to hold out any hope of victory in South Africa next summer, under-pressure boss Dunga needs to get to the bottom of the mystifying split-personality syndrome that haunts his team. Emphatic, energetic and effervescent against Italy and the USA...

    Rossi Is The Real Deal

    Italy 3-1 USA Rossi 58, 90 Donovan 39 (p) De Rossi 71 Marcello Lippi is gradually coming to terms with something that Villarreal fans could have told him months ago; Giuseppe Rossi is the real deal. The American-born Italian striker turned this game on its head moments after his introduction...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe? Arsene Wenger described his side as 'super-outsiders' before the first leg of their clash with Villarreal, but even after...

    When Title Races Go Bad

    Two weeks ago, Manchester United were seven points ahead of Liverpool with a game in hand and the title race appeared to be over. Now, with United losing back-to-back league games, the gap has been slashed to just a single point. Can Liverpool maintain their momentum and romp home to an unlikely...

    Villa Fans Need A Reality Check

    The Premier League table has an eerily familiar look, doesn't it? In amongst the excitement of Liverpool's emphatic victory at Old Trafford and the discovery of stardust in the boots of Andrey Arshavin, this was the weekend when Aston Villa finally dipped out of the top four. There can't be many...

    Hiddink's Hairdryer

    Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (2-3 agg) (Iaquinta 19) (Essien 45+1) (Del Piero 74) (Drogba 83) Guus Hiddink was hired to bring some tactical sophistication to an underwhelming team, but according to Ray Wilkins, it was an old-fashioned half-time hairdryer that carried Chelsea to the last eight of the...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-4 Chelsea

    Scolari Safe... For Now Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be in the mood to be pleasant to any of his players after a week of backbiting and under-achievement, but if he has any sense, he'll give Petr Cech a very firm pat on the back. The word 'crisis' may be overused in football, but had it not been...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    Woeful Reds Ravaged By Redknapp

    The Tottenham Hotspur revival continues. Not content with robbing Liverpool blind in the League ten days ago, Harry Redknapp's resurgent warriors battered them in the League Cup as well. This emphatic and fully deserved 4-2 victory means that the North London side have racked up an astonishing...

    Young Guns Hit Five

    There is a swagger about Arsenal in Europe this year. Since the inception of the Champions League, the Gunners have struggled to take their domestic form with them when they go to the airport, reaching the final just once and crashing out early every other year. In that same time Manchester...

    Boo-Boys Blight Effective England

    With three wins out of three and a new-found ability to pass the ball about on the ground, the Fabio Capello revolution is gradually gaining momentum. A surprisingly perky Kazakhstan team were eventually swept aside at Wembley, crushed 5-1 with a late flurry of goals. The dark days of the former...

    Chelsea Dominant As Villa Crumble

    Crisis? What crisis? Beset by injuries, Chelsea saved their best performance of the season so far for the day when the smart money was on Aston Villa to end that long unbeaten home run of theirs. Luiz Felipe Scolari's walking wounded preserved their record in a magnificent first half before...

    League one play-off's

    It would have been impossible for the ticket office staff to recognise them when they arrived. Clad in red and white scarves and speaking in broad Yorkshire accents, the Leeds United supporters who had failed to secure Wembley tickets in their half of the stadium surreptiously crept down the...
