Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread

I'm predicting us to line up like this today against QPR:

De Gea
Rafael Ferdinand Evans Evra
Nani Carrick Cleverley Kagawa
Van Persie Hernandez


Nani needs to start especially with an out of form Valencia and Young just returning back from injury. I think Ferdinand/Evans will start together due to Vidic playing on Monday and I believe Cleverley will partner Carrick again although, I wouldn't be surprised if we give Anderson a game. Kagawa to start on the left as he has impressed on that side before although, I don't mind seeing him play behind Van Persie. Chicharito MUST start as it's long overdue based on his form and also scoring on Monday. That and he has a good little partnership with Van Persie.

It will be a tough game, much tougher than what it was last season where we comfortably beat them 2-0 and controlled the entire game. I see QPR putting all their men behind the ball and trying to get a point but hopefully we can break them down. I think we'll win, probably 2-1 or 3-1 but I'm hoping the way they played against City in the last game of last season will be added motivation for us to decimate them. I don't see it happening but I hope it does.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread

This is sweet. Soccer Saturday highlighting City & Chelsea's bad times this season. There's quite a few, still running!

Edit: Merson for once hits the nail on the head. Poor signings by Mancini, most aren't playing in Sinclair, Rodwell & Maicon. "Not good enough", yep!

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread

Yeah, Merson just criticised City for the players they brought in (and rightfully so). He just questioned whether Sinclair would get in the Fulham team over Duff. That was a tad unfair as Sinclair is a good player but he shouldn't have gone to City, he should have stayed at Swansea. As for Merson going on about Maicon and how Bale tore him apart 2 years ago, to Maicon's credit though, he handled Bale well last time City played Spurs.

All the other points they are making though are valid.

I don't know why Sky have chosen Fulham VS Stoke as there lunchtime kick-off when it has the potential to be one of the most boring games of the season, why not Reading VS Wigan?

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread

bobby didn't make the signings.

you think he he went and picked out scott bloody sinclair then refused to play him? lordy.

rodwell has struggled badly with injury and is a player for the future, maicon has been really good whenever he's been able to get on the pitch, garcia deserves a bit of time to adapt and nastasic has been a revelation. we have a poor window, marwood gets removed from the role of dealing with transfers after losing out on the two players bobby wanted in van persie and hazard. coincidence? i think not.

besides nastasic no one has shone out and that has cost us the title. no new really good players to challenge for spots, plus those extra goals van persie has scored has arguably been the different in about 15 points single handedly. marwood's strategy of losing out on players then panic buying on the final day really shown up.

This is what I mentioned earlier - I can't see anyone being particularly excited by that game.

As for Man City's signings: poor Sinclair. It's a shame because he's a good player but when he signed everyone could see he wasn't going to play much. Strange signing.

I barely watch Soccer Saturday any more since everyone on the panel (apart from Jeff and Le Tissier) are heavily biased towards their own clubs and barely say anything worthwhile anyway. Did anyone see Phil Thompson last week trying to hide his anger after Jeff criticized Liverpool? You could see it in his eyes, and he even told Jeff to "shut up" rather forcefully.

Such a random choice of game, if they didn't want big teams they should have gone for Reading v Wigan, at least that game has a lot more importance to it.
