1996 was a fine year for humanity. The Cable Guy hit the cinemas and showed us all just what was truly possible, the IRA bombed the Arndale centre, millions of people the world over began finding that Ask Jeeves 'preferred the term jovial' and Mark Morrison warned us all about the imminent Return of the Mac (despite no-one realising he'd been away) before being jailed for hiring a ringer to do a bout of community service.

With the job up for grabs with his former club Chelsea and the vacancy at Anfield with Liverpool, there were suggestions the Portuguese coach could be set for an imminent return to the Premier League, where he claimed two titles with the Blues.

United fans will be very happy to hear of the imminent return of David Petrucci. Along with Ravel Morrison, Paul Pogba and Magnus Eikram, Petrucci, 20, is seen as one of the club's best prospects. Sidelined for almost a year with a knee ailment, Petrucci is expected to put in a full shift for the first time against Manchester City on November 23rd.

Twelve wishes for the ‘New Arsenal’ in 2012

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 1 view

If it had not been for such a difficult start to the season, Arsenal would now be fighting for the title.

And, that includes the loss of points against Wolves at home (unfortunate) and Fulham away (well deserved). The last few games have been disappointing, but Arsenal have gathered 29 points in their last 13 games and during the process it was able to pre-qualify for the CL against a very good Udinese, and win their CL-group against strong opposition with style and dominance.

Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby is on course to make his return against West Bromwich Albion in tomorrow afternoon's key fixture for Arsene Wenger's men.

Almost two weeks ago, the Frenchman injured his ankle in the Gunners' 4-1 win at home to 10-men Bolton Wanderers. It is only fitting that Diaby is now looking forward to making a comeback at the same venue pending, of course, a fitness test later today.

Injury Crisis or Opportunity?

White Hart Pain at related • 1 view

It seems like we are reverting back to the Spurs of a few years ago with awful luck where players getting injured is concerned. After losing Bassong and Ledley on Sunday, our defence is literally in pieces. Woodgate has no imminent return date and although Dawson isn't too far away now, him leading the line is something I don't want to think about.

Things went horribly, horribly wrong on Sunday, but we've already covered that.

Lucas Fails To Step Up To The Mark

Anfield Talk at related • 3 views

There is a feeling that Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez can be a little too stubborn for his own good at times and he is putting his reputation in unnecessary jeopardy by belligerently backing misfiring midfielder Lucas.

Few Liverpool observers are convinced that the Brazilian midfielder has what it takes to claim a regular role in the heart of Benitez's side and his woeful performance in the defeat against Fiorentina on Tuesday night did little to silence the army who believe he would be more effectively employed as a bench warmer.

Sorry I'm late, Sunday was a little hectic.

I hope none of you are satisfied with Saturday's performance. One point is better than none, certainly, but an expansion team on a long road trip that has conceded five goals in their last two league matches should be easy pickings for a club looking to be a playoff contender.
