Can Stuttering Liverpool Stop Rejuvenated Newcastle? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Two weeks is a long time in football. If you don't believe it, you should have a chat with Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew. The Geordies looked dead and buried at the start of October. Deep into the relegation zone, they were winless in 6 and looked to be in store for a very long season indeed.
Newcastle seem to be turning things around over the last couple of weeks, and 13 days agowe had no league wins and now we have two, and we just reached the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup for the first time since Mike Ashley bought the club 23 years ago (actually it was [...]
While Manchester United's defense will be put to its biggest test this weekend against cross-city rivals Manchester City, the result of the derby could hinge on the battle of tactics between Louis van Gaal and Manuel Pellegrini.
When Louis van Gaal assumed control of United this summer, the 63-year-old was coming off a successful World Cup campaign with Holland.
Another fascinating weekend of Premier League fixtures awaits us from Saturday through to Sunday with the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon the highlight. Chelsea can increase their lead at the top with a win over QPR while Burnley chase their first three points of the season at the Emirates. Tom Powell is on hand with his best bets from the weekend's action.
Arsenal are preparing to face a Burnley team with the worst record in the Premiership this season, but he is not under the impression that it will be an easy game at all, going by the stats from coming out of Turf Moor. "They are better than their points would suggest, that's what the stats [...]
Burnley's quest for their first victory of the season will surely have to wait at least another week as Sean Dyche's men visit the Emirates tomorrow with Arsene Wenger knowing anything less than a win could put payed to any hope of a run at the title this season if it isn't already out of their sight it surely will should they fail to beat bottom club and relegation favourite's Burnley.
Some squad issues Wenger could think about by KM Arsenal welcome Burnley in what should be a walk in the park on a Saturday afternoon. They've conceded 16 goals, they have only grabbed 4 points so far and have only scored 5 goals. Anything but the 3 points would be a huge blow, but we've [...]
The Arsenal transfer rumours relating to Sami Khedira have been simmering since the beginning of the summer, and it looks like they are still going full pelt and will be until the end of January. According to many pundits Khedira has a host of top teams to choose from, but the Real Madrid midfielder always [.
Chelsea will welcome back leading goalscorer Diego Costa for the visit of London rivals QPR tomorrow at Stamford Bridge and he could send Harry Redknapp's side down with a bang as he attempts to add to his brilliant start to his Blue's career!
Prediction: Like Arsenal I think Chelsea are a gimme for the win.
Everton seem to have rediscovered their form of late however they still struggle at home with just one win thus far and Garry Monk will no doubt feed that out to his players tomorrow as he looks to keep the Swan's in European contention even at this early stage of the season!
Despite Everton's superiority over the Swan's in the league the 19/5 on offer for an away win at Sporting Bet looks way overpriced for a team who have already beaten their opponents 3-0 this season albeit it in the League Cup!
I still can't believe Alan Pardew has turned it around lest be still in a job but he has and he is and Newcastle are looking for the fourth win on the trot in tomorrow's early kick-off at St James Park against Liverpool who are still struggling to hit the heights of last season minus their top two strikers from last season.
What can you say, except that the finish we witnessed vs Sporting Kansas City was so NOT Metro - at all. It was a "Reverse Metro finish" to this one, with the Red Bulls, seemingly dead on the banks of the Passaic, coming from behind with two late goals from Bradley Wright-Phillips. BWP has been "The Ultimate Scoring Machine" for us this season and his 2 goals in this one were massive.
