Zenit 2-3 Milan: Abbiati saves the day as El Shaarawy shines again

AC Milan Blog at related • 0 views
He may not be considered one of the best and perhaps rightly so. However, Christian Abbiati showed on Wednesday night just why buying a new goalkeeper has not been a priority for the Rossoneri in recent years. Seldom is he spectacular, rarely does he decide games. But, against Zenit it was his heroics between the [.

Parma 1-1 Milan: Bojan and El Shaarawy protagonists in improved display

AC Milan Blog at related • 0 views
"The performance was out best yet," declared Max Allegri after the final whistle on Saturday night. They may have not got all three points, but, he was dead right. There was fluidity, control and calmness in their play, not the nervousness and apprehension that has been evident in previous games. The result, on this occasion, [.

Milan 2-0 Cagliari: The jinx is broken and the nightmare is over, for now

AC Milan Blog at related • 0 views
At times it was not pretty, and it certainly was not the most convincing win, but, as Adriano Galliani sounded after the final whistle, "only the result mattered". How right he is; after the club's worst start to a season in 82 years, after failing to score a single goal at home let alone win, [...]

Udinese 2-1 Milan: Crisis deepens as Galliani assures Allegri of his position

"Allegri is not up for debate. We are going forward with this Coach, as he has the total faith of the President and me," Adriano Galliani proclaimed in the aftermath of Milan's dramatic defeat at the hands of Udinese. Though, perhaps not everyone will believe him. This is, after all, the man that at the [.

Milan 0-1 Atalanta: A second home defeat for Allegri’s lacklustre men

The Rossoneri succumbed to their second consecutive home defeat of the season. After just three points from three games, alarm bells are ringing already. Max Allegri's side were poor as Luca Cigarini's strike was enough to give Atalanta their first win. My thoughts on the game will follow and for a more detailed report, go [.

Bologna 1-3 Milan: Hat-trick hero Pazzini steals the show

AC Milan Blog at related • 0 views
Milan registered their first win of the season thanks to an inspired Giampaolo Pazzini who claimed a hat-trick. The Rossoneri were not all that convincing and from the start their play was patchy – fluid at times, fragmented other times. The defence, in particular, struggled to deal with the threat of Alessandro Diamanti who ran [.

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs 3 Stevenage 1 - Report, Ratings & Player Twitter Reaction

Tottenblog Hotspur at related • 0 views
Spurs advanced to the quarter finals meeting with Bolton the hard way. A shocking first half that really got us worried. No doubt a half time bollocking from Redknapp and a more assured second half performance, with a few wobbles thrown in. Just because it wouldn't be Spurs without them.

Disastrous start as Nelsen brought down Joel Byrom in the box with three minutes on the clock.

Getting Real. Where Did It Go Wrong? The Vote

Tottenblog Hotspur at related • 0 views
I know we're not technically out yet, but the Champions League was fun wasn't it? Topping our group, beating the top 2 Italian teams and announcing ourselves on the European stage. It's been a laugh. I'm proud of what we've achieved in our debut season. In terms of an actual match report, I don't think I can find words that:
a) would summarise last nights match without descending into incoherent babbling
b) you would want to read

That, and in a game where you only have 28% possession, spend 76% of the time in your own half, and lose four nil, player ratings and all that are pretty pointless

So the question is, last night's 4-0 defeat was mainly a result of:
a) Not buying a striker in January - Currently zero Spurs goals in 410 minutes
bi) Lennon feeling poorly before the match - bii) Forcing us to play Jenas and a messed up midfield
c) Conceding an early goal
d) Crouch making two mental and identical tackles with identical outcomes
e) Simply being beaten by a better team - it would have happened even if all of the above didn't

Man City - Spurs Player Ratings & Redknapp's Comments AKA Damp Squib End to the Season Continues

United Lose to Manchester City in Upset

With Rooney in the stands serving serving a two match ban for his foul mouthed tirade, cross-town rivals capitalize on a Michael Carrick mistake and pick up a 1-nil win bumping United out of the FA Cup and ending all hope of repeating their famous treble win.

Early in the match Berbatov had two great chances to put the Red Devils on top, however both were squandered.

Chicharito nets two as United beat Wigan

Manutd Blog at related • 0 views

With a Man of the Match performance, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez netted the first two goals for United, as the league leaders won 4-0 at the DW Stadium.

In 13 meeting between the two clubs, United has won all of them. Scoring 41 goals and only conceding 4 in the process.

This day was no different, it took Chicharito 17 minutes to score the opener and justify his start of Bulgarian strike partner, Dimitar Berbatov.

Rooney settles derby with spectacular goal!

Manutd Blog at related • 0 views

In what looked like an ending straight from a Hollywood blockbuster film. Rooney scored a spectacular goal with a little over 10 minutes remaining to give United the 2-1 lead over Manchester City of all teams!

And if you look closely, the goal was right in front of Balotelli. Balotelli was the one who criticized Rooney only a few weeks ago.

Berbatov scores third hat-trick of the season.

Manutd Blog at related • 1 view

Berbatov becomes only the third player in Premier League history to score three hat tricks in one season. He joins van Nistelrooy and Alan Shearer.

United wasted no time as Berbatov scored a header in the first two minutes of play off a flick from O'Shea. The man who replaced Rafael, who is out due to a suspension.
