Manchester United take on West Ham this weekend, and ahead of the game one of the Hammers’ key players in the form of Aaron Creswell has claimed that his side don’t need any motivation whatsoever – as they prepare for one of the biggest matches of their season.
Everton have been handed a major boost ahead of the game against Manchester United this coming Saturday. John Stones, who was doubtful to feature, ‘should be ready’ according to Roberto Martinez – the Everton gaffer.
On deadline day, Manchester United were stripped of one of their homegrown talents in the form of Danny Welbeck. the 23-year old Longsight-born striker swapped Manchester for London, as he made a £16million move to Arsenal in an attempt to revive his footballing career as a striker.
Danny Welbeck is a born and bred Mancunian, and on Monday we were all gutted to hear that Manchester United had agreed a deal to sell the Longsight-lad to Arsenal. However, a couple of days later, Manchester United fans aren’t happy with Danny Welbeck, after he admitted he has ‘envisaged’ playing for Arsenal before.
The statement “the biggest derby ever” has been used at least once for the past few seasons, we had the Carling Cup semi finals in 2010, the FA cup semi last year, the league game at Old Trafford last year, and the Community Shield at the start of this season.
In a recent interview Michah Richards has come out with some odd statements, including saying that United players get straight into the England squad. He also feels players like him have to work twice as hard to get recognition for their country.
Just two weeks ago when City lost away at Swansea, we had our first crying city fan that provided us with much entertainment. Then at the game against Arsenal on Sunday we had another crying city fan, this time much younger, but that doesn’t make it any less funny. Aren’t City great eh? they are just a club that keeps on giving.
All of the sudden we find ourselves 5 points clear with just seven games left to play, after a well fought victory away at Blackburn Rovers last night I had a look at our own and our noisy neighbours remaining fixtures. With still 21 points left up for grabs, that means we need to take 17 to reclaim our Premier League crown.
Patrick Vieira has once again attacked Manchester United, today he has claimed that we get preferential treatment from referees when playing at Old Trafford.
