Shelvey increpa a Ferguson al entrar al túnel de... by rrmisas 1. After all the pre-match diplomatic work to ensure Manchester United didn't burst into their 'Always the victims, it's never your fault' chant, perhaps Jonjo Shelvey shouldn't have followed his two-footed lunge by pointing at Sir Alex Ferguson and saying: "That's your fault!

Apologies if this is redundant, but I wanted to share some visuals to back up Rich's previous post.

Dembele's dashboard is below:

For those wondering, the 'X' is a tackle, the hexagons are take-ons. Orange is successful, purple is unsuccessful. And as we can see, he had many successful tackles and take-ons all over the pitch; all while posting a 96% passing completion rate.

Goals:
Torres 4' 70'
Silva 49'
Fabregas 83'

It played out exactly as you expected it to play out.

Look, I don't mean this to be patronizing. But these two teams are in different classes, and we knew this before kickoff.

All the pre-match talk centered on Torres.

There's an incredible amount of ways you can break down a match like Saturday night's 2-2 draw with Houston, but we're going to take emotion out of it and stick solely to the numbers in this column!

Without getting overly analytical, the stats from Saturday night actually mirror the physical nature of the match quite well, and while the match ended on level terms, it was plain to see in sheer numbers how much Houston dominated the flow of the game.

Matchday 3 Group D
Olympic Stadium | 21:45

Philippe Mexes, along with Adil Rami and Ben Arfa, enjoyed a leisurely stroll during France's training session in Kiev yesterday. Technically, Laurent Blanc's squad are allowed to have a little bit of a laugh about the Swedes including Ikea's infamous meatballs and terrible furniture- but there's just too much to play for tonight!

Thanks a lot to everyone who's been following this site and leaving comments. We English-speaking France supporters must stick together. The "World Cup Blog" server has been going down often, so we'll have to give that some thought.

While France drew their first match, Ukraine won theirs, so they're top of the table, and have home-field advantage.

Three Midfielders, Two Halves

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
It's been awhile since I trawled through the Guardian chalkboards for interesting items. I know, we all missed it.

I remain convinced that Liverpool changed tact in midfield during the interval. The key seemed to be Spearing, more willing to stay in his own half and shield the defense rather than pressing higher up the pitch and leaving gaps.

Que dulce! Valencia kept to their promise to the fans last night and held Barca to a 1-1 draw with a 27th minute screamer from Jonas. Part of the promise was to play their best and not lose in front of the home fans, so this result is significantly better than a loss.

It is said that revenge is a dish best served cold. Â If temperature is a guide to the revenge due then Blackburn are going to get roasted.

Our game at Ewood was a seriously depressing affair and one of the low points of this (and any) season. To concede 4 goals from 3 Blackburn shots and to lose from being 2 up after 20 mins was desperate for fans just recovering from the MU mauling.

Against Wolves, Jordan Henderson only misplaced four of his passes from open play for a completion rate topping 90%. He may not have connected on any of his seven attempted crosses, which does rather drag down his overall numbers, but it is nonetheless an impressive statistic. As for how he achieved such a high completion rate, the answer is a fairly simple one: He kept it simple.

Like the child whose parents have surreptitiously removed their much-loved comfort blanket in the night, we woke this morning missing the precious consolation of a game in hand, and soon discovered that we can manage perfectly well without it. For some it provided a welcome safety net, for others the promise of future delights.

The chant ‘Urbs in Horto Magico' is a favorite among the Fire fan base. Its powerful words and upbeat tempo help make it a consistent selection from the organized chaos of the capo stand at Toyota Park. Opposing fans have likely heard Urbs in Horto Magico from the Fire faithful too. As the last line declares, "For the Fire we will travel anywhere".
