Reds, Gunners resume rivalry Walcott LONDON. — Liverpool will hope to draw inspiration from memories of last season’s thrilling 5-1 demolition of Arsenal when the teams resume hostilities in the English Premier League at Anfield this weekend. Arsene Wenger’s side were routed on their last trip to Liverpool’s famous stadium in February, when a devastating four-goal salvo inside the first 20 minutes left the North London club reeling. It was the start of an 11-game winning run that took Liverpool to within sight of the title. Their subsequent collapse has been followed by a wretched start to the current campaign, with last weekend’s chastening 3-0 defeat at Manchester United leaving them 18 points behind leaders Chelsea in 11th place. But having emerged from a taxing trip to Championship leaders Bournemouth in the League Cup with a 3-1 victory in mid-week, manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that his side have turned a corner. “Slowly we are getting there. I’ve said that my teams have shown at ...

According to a report from Daily Star, Liverpool and England right back Glen Johnson is reportedly out of the English Premier League fixture scheduled for this weekend against Arsenal. The player sustained an injury in the 3-0 defeat of the Reds in the hands of Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United at Old Trafford and his absence could just mean another disappointing loss at Anfield against the Gunners. The right back limped off the pitch in the match at Old Trafford due to a groin injury and is expected to be out on the sidelines for a while. Johnson has been struggling since returning from a long lay-off through injury to cement his place both at Liverpool and the English national side and seems to be doing well until this injury. Just when some stability in his performance can be seen, this new injury occurred. Manager, Brendan Rogers revealed that: “Glen was a groin injury-he has over-stretched his groin.” Johnson was signed by Liverpool from Portsmouth in 2009 for £17.5m and became an important . ...
Robin Van Persie scored a brace as Manchester United narrowly defeated Southhampton 2-1 in their English Premier League encounter at St Mary’s on Monday. The visitors took the lead despite not having the bulk of the possession. A misguided pass from Jose Fonte fell to Van Persie who poked his effort passed Fraser Foster in goal. The home side looked for an equaliser straight away with two chances that came close from Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane. However they did draw level close to the half-time break when Pelle latched on to Dusan Tadic’s rebound and buried his shot from close range. In the second half the Saints came out with a purpose and looked the most likely to score with two early chances from Shane Long at the back post whose attempt was saved by David De Gea and Pelle once more who could only manage to send his shot narrowly over the crossbar. Despite the bulk ...

Even though the jury might be out on whether he is better than greats like Pele, Maradona and Messi , Cristiano has shown time and again that he has the skills and determination to counted amongst the best in the world. He has quite a few records to his name. Cristiano Ronaldo – Man on a Mission! 1. When Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid for 80 million pounds, he became the most expensive player in history. He held on to that title till 2013 when Real Madrid broke that record to buy Gareth Bale 2. Cristiano Ronaldo was the first player in England to win all major PFA and FWA awards. 3.

What We Learned: Premier League Matchday One The first round of the English Premier League has come and gone in a flash, producing some explosive results, familiar headlines and serious questions. Football fans have been salivating at the prospect of the return of the EPL, and did it deliver. Goals, birds dropping s**t in player's mouths and managers already under the pump, here are the five things we learned from match-day one. Same old story at Old Trafford Old mate David Moyes must be feeling hard done by after guiding Manchester United to a 4-1 win against Swansea this time 12 months ago. Fast forward to the weekend, and in Louis Van Gaal’s Premier League debut, the Red Devil’s produce a pitiful performance to be beaten by minnows Swansea. The 3-5-2 formation worked for the Netherlands, but for it to work at Manchester United, they need to sign one or two quality defenders, one of Angel Di Maria or Juan Cuadrado, and not play Ashley Young as a wing-back. The defence were a shambles against a pluck ...
English Premier LEAGUE 2014/15 SEASON BEGINS No fixture is considered easy as the English Premier League kicks off today with 20-time champions Manchester United facing Swansea City and Arsenal hosting CrystalPalace in a London derby. Both United and Arsenal will be in the spotlight for the most part of the season following their dramatic campaigns last season. United, who were aiming to defend the title they won in the 2012-13 season, had flopped under manager David Moyes and had finished the season 7th in the log, a position that was as strange to the Red Devils as falling to their ‘noisy’ neighbours twice in the season; the second being a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. Arsenal also had one of their most embarrassing campaigns in recent time, losing on wide margins to Liverpool and Manchester City, and finishing fourth, again, after staying atop the league for most weeks of the season. Unlike how Arsenal started the league last season when they lost 3-1 to Aston Villa, they are favourites to win today ...

Substitute Marouane Fellaini scored in second-half stoppage time as Manchester United beat Valencia 2-1 in manager Louis Van Gaal's first home game in charge of the English Premier League club. Wayne Rooney had a first-half penalty saved in the 32nd minute having earlier been felled by defender Antonio Barragan. United broke the deadlock early in the second half when Darren Fletcher slotted home from the edge of the area after Ashley Young's 49th minute corner. The visitors pressed for an equalizer and were rewarded in the 71st when Rodrigo blazed a first-time volley into the roof of the net following a free-kick. Substitute Pablo Piatti poked a shot wide from close range moments later and the La Liga side were left to rue that miss when Fellaini struck late on.

Man Utd convincingly beat Madrid in ICC Kwame Boakye | 00:12 | 03.08.2014 Manchester United win 3-1 against Real Madrid in International Champions Cup to make the final This was without doubt the biggest pre-season game for the upcoming 2014/2015 season. And had an equally biggest attendance in football in the history of US soccer games. Manchester United had the chance to avenge their Uefa Champions League elimination by Madrid last season. And under new manager Louis Van Gaal, the Red Devils were buoyed than ever. Real Madrid had their pride at stake and were never going to make it an easy game for the English Premier League side. The game had an early exchange of good attacking football with both sides not showing intent of letting down. Manchester United however got the first goal. Daren Fletcher from the right wing gave a neat pass to Wayne Rooney whose back flick beat the Madrid defenders. Danny Welbeck picked up the ball and laid for Ashley Young on the left hand side to slot home. An inexperienced ...
City land Nissan five-year sponsor deal TOKYO, July 17- English Premier League champions Manchester City have landed a five-year sponsorship deal with Japanese automaker Nissan, both parties said on Thursday. Financial terms of the deal, announced at Nissan’s global headquarters in Yokohama, were not disclosed, but City called it the “most significant of its type in the Premier League”. Chevrolet, part of General Motors, sponsors City’s bitter cross-city rivals Manchester United, swelling the club’s coffers by an estimated $70 million a season. The partnership between Nissan, which owns Japanese club Yokohama F-Marinos, and City follows an initial agreement in May in which Manchester City’s holding company City Football Group (CFG) took a minority stake in Yokohama. City, who pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title last season in a dramatic run-in, are currently ranked as the world’s seventh richest club by Forbes, with Spain’s Real Madrid and Barcelona topping the list.

I don't know how many of you guys noticed. England is not playing the best soccer that we have seen many times, but is nice to see that all the players that were there today are currently playing in the English Premier League. Something that I think we can't see in any other team in the World Cup. Different players which play all the year, one against each other, that are playing and fighting together for the same objective. Joe Hart (Manchester City) Glen Johnson (Liverpool) Gary Cahill (Chelsea) Phil Jagielka (Everton) Leighton Baines (Everton) Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) Raheem Sterling (Liverpool) Danny Welbeck (Manchester United) Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) BENCH Ben Foster (West Bromwich) Philip Jones (Manchester United) C.

Similarly, Adam Lallana looks set to be signing at Anfield this summer and Ronald Koeman probably couldn’t have imagined a tougher match as he looks to follow successfully in the footsteps of Mauricio Pochettino. Meanwhile, Manchester United once again face Swansea City in their opening game, with Louis Van Gaal taking charge of the Red Devils and the champions of two seasons ago have a reasonable run of opening fixtures. The same can’t be said of Manchester City who go to St James’ Park before subsequent matches against Liverpool, Stoke, Arsenal and Chelsea.

''At the highest level of football, a good coach is the difference between victory and defeat.

With virtually the same players, United went from winning the English Premier League to becoming an average team in a matter of months. The answer was to quickly get rid of coach David Moyes and replace him with world-class Louis Van Gaal.''.Keshi is not a world class coach.

Nigeria face a test of their credentials when they meet a stubborn Iran side in their FIFA World Cup Group F opener at the Arena da Baixada on Monday night. The match should be interesting because this will be Nigeria's chance to secure 3 points, which will give the fans a strong hope of going to the next round. Iran's performance in pre-World Cup friendlies was far from encouraging. After failing to score against Belarus (0-0) and Montenegro (0-0), they finally netted against Angola (1-1). They won against Trinidad and Tobago (2-0). Iran did not qualify in 2010, but Former Manchester United coach Carlos Queiroz, who had also managed South Africa and Portugal before, guided them to finish on top of the Asian Qualifying Group A. The Asians will depend a lot on Fulham winger Ashkan Dejagah, who had a decent English Premier League season. Nigeria defeated Spain 3-2 in the 1998 World Cup. They seems to have an uncanny connection with Argentina as they have been in the same group with the South American giant ...

If yesterday David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Lampard, Terry etc would have been retiring, the social media would have been bombarded with messages, stories and compliments from all over the world. But according to me the biggest all time legend of English Premier League and World Football of his generation has decided to hung his boots. And hence I shall like to say few words for the Red Legend though nothing in my humble opinion can justify it. You I can understand the above fact, as when I started supporting Manchester United, I was always following Beckham, Van Nistleruuy, Roy Keane, etc those were flamboyant characters with outstanding talent that divide the fans and those whom fans love and discuss day and night. But over the period of time, yes it's funny that for me it just seem's yesterday when I saw Manchester United playing for the first time!

Cristiano Ronaldo believes he has become a better player since joining Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 and has thrived on the obsession the La Liga club have with winning a 10th European title. Real play city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final on May 24 and are one step away from the record-extending continental crown that has eluded them since they last won Europe's elite club competition exactly 12 years ago, on May 15, 2002. Ronaldo, 29, is the top scorer in this season's competition with a record 16 goals, two more than the previous best set by Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and former AC Milan striker Jose Altafini. "I've changed for the better, of course," Ronaldo said on Real's website on Thursday (www.realmadrid.com). "I won the Champions League with Manchester United and now this is my fifth season with Real Madrid," added the Portugal captain, a European champion with the English Premier League club in 2008. "I've always dreamed of winning this competition with this ...

Barclays Premier League 2013/2014 Ferdinand to leave United (PA) Monday 12 May 2014 Defender Rio Ferdinand will leave Manchester United this summer after 12 years at the English Premier League club. Ferdinand has lost his place in the United first team over the last couple of years due to a series of injuries and because of the emergence of Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling. His contract expires this summer and he has revealed he will not be signing an extension. The 35-year-old former England captain will therefore leave Old Trafford although he has no desire to retire and is now looking for a new club. In a statement on his website, Ferdinand said: "I have thought long and hard over the last few months about my future, and after 12 fantastic years playing for what I regard as the best club in the world, I have decided the time is right for me to move on." Ferdinand moved to Old Trafford from Leeds in July 2002 for a then British record transfer fee of £29.1m, which also made him the world's mo ...

Good sport. We have a new breed of football fans, especially those following the English Premier League. At the beginning of the season, they were vocal about their love for Manchester United. Then when Arsenal went top and Man U’s prospects took a knock, they switched their vocal support to the “noisy neighbour’s” Eastlands camp - Manchester City was then swatting teams by the tennis score. And when Chelsea ascended to the summit, their voices crossed to the Bridge briefly before taking yet another flight out to Anfield when it was Liverpool’s turn to destroy defences. Now that things are looking as clear as muddy water, their voices are “hushly” undecided. But trust me; they will emerge in a few days proclaiming their allegiance to whoever will have conquered the Barclays Cup. Such good sports…

Norwich Confirm Yobo’s Absence Norwich City of England have confirmed that their veteran central defender, Joseph Yobo will miss action in the English Premier League this weekend, as the Super Eagles skipper is still nursing the same injury that kept him out of The Canaries’ line up for the previous fixture. The development means Yobo, who is on loan at Carrow Road from Fenerbahçe of Turkey, will not be dressed for against once fearsome but now embattled Manchester United, as the former Everton stopper will now set eyes on making a return for the next tie out against Chelsea. The 33-year-old Yobo has made eight appearances for Norwich since his January loan move from Fenerbahçe but will not be part of their trip to Manchester on Saturday due to calf injury. Yobo will be eager to show the national team coaches he is fit enough to be part of the Nigeria squad to the World Cup in June when he makes his expected return to full fitness for the game against Chelsea on May 4 at Stamford Bridge.

LONDON (AFP) – David Moyes’ 10 month stay at Manchester United is one of many managerial fiascos in the English Premier League. Here are five English football coaching disasters: Brian CloughLeeds United Clough, one of England’s greatest managers, lasted 44 days at Leeds United when they were reigning champions in 1974. The players hated his brash style and remembered his past criticism of them and never cooperated. Clough went on to twice win the European Cup with Nottingham Forest. Roy Hodgson – Liverpool The man who now coaches England, started at Liverpool on July 1, 2010, but speculation of a sacking started in October and he left the following January 8. Poor league form and a fan clamour for club legend Kenny Dalglish to step in sealed Hodgson’s fate. Dalglish was in turn sacked in May 2012. Jacques Santini – Tottenham Hotspur Santini was one of France’s most respected coac ...

Manchester City players world's top earners - study shows Footballers with English Premier League club Manchester City are the most highly-paid athletes in global sport, according to a study published on Wednesday. The study, carried out by Britain's Sporting Intelligence website, found that the average annual salary of a first-team player at City was £5.3 million. City top the list ahead of Major League Baseball teams the New York Yankees and the LA Dodgers, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Chelsea also featuring in the top 10. NBA teams the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls complete the line-up. City's lavish spending on players has not been without complications, however.

I do feel rather disheartened by supporters of teams who willingly buy into hiring a plane to make their feelings clear: get rid of the manager as we do not like him. Why am I disheartened? It takes time to mould a team, to bring up young players, to influence players based on your own unique long term vision and so on. How long did it take Alex Ferguson to do that at Manchester United? The English Premier League mirrors the ugly side of capitalism at times: immediate profit and success, or you're out. The fans don't help.

ARSENAL DRUBBING LETS LIVERPOOL, CITY POUNCE Arsenal risk being cut adrift in the English Premier League title race after a humiliating 6-0 defeat at leaders Chelsea in Arsene Wenger's 1,000th match as manager. Wenger described the result as "one of the worst days" of his career and his misery was compounded by handsome victories for Liverpool and Manchester City that saw his side slump to fourth place in the table. Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick as Liverpool won 6-3 at Cardiff City to move to within four points of Chelsea, while City are two points further back -- but with three games in hand -- after Yaya Toure also claimed a treble in a 5-0 win over Fulham. Meanwhile, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney scored an astonishing 58-yard lob in a 2-0 win at West Ham United. Arsenal are now seven points below Chelsea, albeit with a game in hand, after Wenger's side were blown away by a flurry of first-half goals from Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard and Oscar at Stamford Bridge. Hazard's goal cam ...
1000 GAMES: ENGLISH FOOTBALL WILL NEVER FORGET Arsene Wenger. Celebrating 1,000 games as the manager of any football club is a laudable achievement. In several decades of committed followership of the English Premier League, I’ve only ever had the privilege of witnessing it once and that was Sir Alex Ferguson, at Manchester United.(turns out only four men have ever done it in English football) Certainly a milestone, but not being a Red Devil, it couldn’t honestly make any kind of personal impact on me. It was just a statistic to be appreciated. Now that it’s the turn of Arsenal FC and their coach, I am pleasantly surprised to admit that it does mean a lot to me as an Arsenal fan. It feels like stability (especially in this new era of result oriented hiring and firing of coaches) long term planning, vision and most importantly patience. The patience to nurture and build a project from inception,starting from the bottom and moving slowly to the top. Just as pleasantly, all these feelings typify the ma ...

Martinez: A top four finish is possible (AFP) Friday 14 March 2014 Share Everton manager Roberto Martinez is still setting his sights on the Uefa Champions League places ahead of Cardiff City's visit to Goodison Park on Saturday. While Everton were losing 4-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-finals last weekend, Martinez's team slipped to seventh in the English Premier League following Manchester United's 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion. The Toffees are now nine points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with 11 matches left, leaving them facing an uphill task to qualify for Europe's elite club competition. Martinez has won plaudits for his work since replacing David Moyes, who joined Manchester United last summer. But Everton have lost four of their last seven matches in all competitions since the end of January. Their home form remains strong however, with nine wins and just one defeat from their 13 league matches at Goodison this season. And Martinez maintains that the top four is still the target, wi ...
Around 2001, the phrase was used to describe the tactics of Argentine team Estudiantes de La Plata in the 1968 Copa Intercontinental game against Manchester United in their book Fear and Loathing in World Football by Gary Armstrong and Richard Giulianotti. Johan Cruyff famously used it in 2002 in criticism of the way Brazil won the World Cup, stating: "Brazil deserved their win but they aren't a team. They play and only took advantage of the mistakes of their opponents. Cesc Fabregas used the term to describe the style of play in the English Premier League, sometime in 2006 stating: "Teams just defend, defend and defend, they try to waste time. I call it ‗ ‗ - but we have to accept this happens and break teams down. What term?

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos‘ brother Felix Kroos indirectly revealed that his brother has received an offer from English Premier League side Manchester United while talking to Sky Germany . “We have already talked about it. Manchester has been the team of my dreams since I was a child,” Felix said. “However, I don’t give him any advice. He will take a good decision for himself. There are worse situations than having to decide something like that.” Felix Kroos, aged 22, is a footballer himself and plays for German side Werder Bremen. Toni Kroos was heavily linked with a move away from Allianz Arena in the last transfer window after he had a short rift with manager Pep Guardiola regarding contract extension, but however, things seem to have improved now. Kroos’ current contract with the German Champions expires in 2015
Daily Mirror is reporting that Manchester United are weighing up a summer move for Barcelona midfielder Alexandre Song. The Cameroon international is widely expected to quit Camp Nou at the end of the season in search of regular playing time. According to the latest reports, the 26-year-old is keen on a return to English Premier League, and Manchester United are thought to be showing interest in his services. The Red Devils boss David Moyes is desperate to reinforce his midfield ahead of the 2014/2015 season and Song appears to be one of the players he is looking at.

When a worldwide football giant (Manchester United) struggles and looks out of sorts each time it plays without its best one or two players (Wayne Rooney or /and Van Persie) the solution or culprit is never just a simple name or act. As Chelsea, led be a rejuvenated Samuel Eto'o, put three goals past a disjointed Man United side without Rooney, I could not help but not feel sorry for the Man U die hard fans (my close friends especially) but also wondered what the solution could be to stop this free fall by this giant of world and English Football! Manchester United are in seventh position on the English Premier League table (a position they have almost never occupied at this stage of the season) ; 14 points behind league leaders Arsenal; six points short from Champions League qualification ; are not agressively active in the transfer market (10 days to the closure of the mid season transfer market) ; are close to elimination from the Carling Cup by lowly Sunderland (having lost the first leg) ; and were e ...

The 21-year-old forward is widely tipped to leave his current employers for greener pastures in January, and he reportedly prefers a switch to English Premier League. However, while Manchester United and Liverpool remain keen, they are not willing to offer more than €7 million for the highly rated footballer. Zenit are ready to go up to €12 million, which has seen them move to pole position with Basel obviously hoping to sell their star player to the highest bidder. # Zenit # FCBasel
Emmanuel Adebayor inspired Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-1 win at Manchester United on New Year's Day that has dampened the hopes of the champions retaining their English Premier League title. Christian Eriksen doubled Spurs' lead, after Adebayor had claimed his fourth goal in five games under new manager Tim Sherwood, before Danny Welbeck replied in vain for United. Adebayor was stretchered off in the 70th minute, but not even that injury could take the shine off a Spurs performance that left United in seventh place and trailing leaders Arsenal by 11 points. Tottenham were required to weather a bright and breezy opening from their hosts, but by the time Adebayor struck his 34th-minute opener, the North London club were good value for their lead. The goal came following a blistering counter-attack as Kyle Walker broke up a United foray and Spurs exploited space on United's left. Eriksen picked out Adebayor with a superb cross that the Togo striker met, outjumping Chris Smalling in the process, to place an accu ...
Spurs Leapfrog United Tottenham Hotspur moved above Manchester United on the English Premier League table after beating the Red Devils 2-1 at Old Trafford on New Year’s Day. The result sees Spurs leapfrog United into sixth place on 37 points while United are on 34 points in seventh place. United started the better of the two teams and created a chance on goal as early as the fifth minute when Chris Smalling drove into the box from the right, but saw his shot from 12-yards well-saved by the keeper. Five minutes later and Wayne Rooney had a shot at goal, but he saw his 24-yard free-kick go just over the crossbar. Spurs created their first chance on goal in the 14th minute after Roberto Soldado put Aaron Lennon through on goal, but he was unable to beat David De Gea in a one-on-one situation. Seven minutes later and Nemanja Vidic came bitterly close to breaking the deadlock when he met a corner-kick with a strong header, but it went just wide of the target. Emmanuel Adebayor had the next effort on goal in ...
Madrid: Real Madrid's president on Tuesday revealed that Gareth Bale had cost 91 million euros, confirming the Welsh winger had been insured for the value of his transfer fee. Questioned on the Intereconomia television channel on whether Real's injured star is insured for 91 million euros ($123 million, 78 million pounds) in the event that he is forced to end his career, club president Florentino Perez replied: "Yes, sure". "It's a life insurance, against accidents. Bale is insured for the amount he cost," he added, making it clear that the insurance policy covers death and permanent invalidity. Neither Real Madrid nor Tottenham, Bale's former English Premier League club, had previously disclosed the price tag, which the British press had speculated at up to 101 million euros. The figure means that Real Madrid'S PORTUGUESE STRIKER Cristiano Ronaldo REMAINS THE WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE PLAYER, costing 94 million euros (80 million pounds) when he moved from Manchester United in 2009.

If Manchester United rallies to win the English Premier League, it might look back at Thursday's Boxing Day clash at Hull as a turning point.
The cold, wet and windy conditions in December seem a million miles away when the sun is shining in the British summer, but when the following season’s fixtures are released, English football fans immediately look for the Boxing Day match. The festive period holds a special place in the English footballing calendar, and matches played the day after Christmas were traditionally between local teams, with bumper crowds turning out for local derbies. Those matches have become less commonplace in the modern era, with the most recent memorable derby taking place in 1979, nicknamed ‘The Boxing Day Massacre’, with Sheffield Wednesday defeating neighbours United 4-0. Despite the lack of local derbies, the English Premier League has seen a number of remarkable Boxing Day matches, and FIFA.com take a look back at some of the best from the last two decades. Sheffield Wednesday 3-3 Manchester United (1992/93) The first Boxing Day in the Premier League era saw a match that would become emblematic of Sir Alex Ferg ...

Deulofeu denies Arsenal, Fulham A fine 84th-minute goal by substitute Gerard Deulofeu earned Everton a 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Sunday that prevented the English Premier League leaders from moving seven points clear. Arsenal had taken the lead only four minutes earlier, through Mesut Ozil, but with a handsome advantage beckoning, on-loan Barcelona forward Deulofeu smashed home to earn his side a point that their endeavour deserved. Having seen Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United drop points on Saturday, Arsenal are nonetheless five points clear of Liverpool and Chelsea ahead of their trip to City next weekend. Defending champions United, meanwhile, are now 13 points behind Arsene Wenger's side in ninth place. The first-half was a cagey affair with good spells of possession for both sides, but there were few chances to show for it early on. With halftime nearing, and dissent in the crowd growing, Arsenal roused themselves, but when first Giroud and then Aaron Ramsey were sent through, Everton goal ...

BSkyB suffers loss on bourse, soccer pitch BSkyB saw more than £1.5 billion (R24.7bn) wiped off its stock market value yesterday after Rupert Murdoch’s payTV group was beaten at its own game with the loss of Champions League soccer rights. Shares in the British group, which had previously seen off three major challengers to its dominance of the home movies and sports market, tumbled more than 10 percent after it suffered its first major rights auction loss to once-staid telecoms company BT. After signing up more than 2 million customers to its three-month-old BT Sport channels, the 168-year-old former state telecoms group said that it had agreed to pay $1.4 billion (R14.5bn) for exclusive live broadcast rights to the Uefa Champions League and Europa League soccer games to add mid-week ties featuring top European teams such as Barcelona, Manchester United and Bayern Munich to the English Premier League matches it already shows.

RVP downs Arsenal, Black Cats beat City (AFP) Sunday 10 November 2013 Print Email my friend Share Robin Van Persie haunted his old club again by scoring the only goal of the game as champions Manchester United beat English Premier League leaders Arsenal 1-0 at Old Trafford to revive their title challenge. The Dutchman, who joined United in August last year struck in the 27th minute. Van Persie got the run on Olivier Giroud and attacked a Wayne Rooney corner before flicking his header over Kieran Gibbs on the post and into the net as United found a way through Arsenal's zonal marking system. This victory, arguably David Moyes's most significant success since replacing the retired Sir Alex Ferguson as United manager, saw the title-holders move to within five points of Arsenal, who themselves remained two points clear at the top from Liverpool. The only consolation for Arsenal fans on Sunday was that arch North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur also lost 1-0, to Newcastle, earlier in the day. Victory would hav ...
Premier League How do United stop Arsenal’s two midfield maestros? Manchester United will have some fight on their hands this weekend when they take on Arsenal. Not only will be they be up against arguably the most in-form team in Europe and the current leaders of the English Premier League, at an individual level they’ll be facing not one but two of the world’s best playmakers in Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil. It’s little surprise that since moving to London, Ozil has turned Arsenal into title contenders once again. He and Cazorla have accounted for 32 goalscoring chances between them (at an average of over 2.5 chances per game) and have scored three goals. More importantly, the pair have given the Gunners’ midfield an added strength it didn’t have last season. Arsenal’s midfield maestros are a big problem for United to deal with, and stopping them (along with Aaron Ramsey) will no doubt be David Moyes’s biggest concern on the day. So how exactly can United shutdown the duo? Here’s two o ...
De Gea: Hart will Bounce Back (PA) Monday 4 November 2013 Joe Hart has earned backing from an unlikely source after Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea claimed the Manchester City goalkeeper will win back his first-team place. Hart will sit out his third game on Tuesday night when Costel Pantimilon plays in City's Uefa Champions League encounter with CSKA Moscow at the Etihad Stadium. With Fraser Forster likely to get his England chance in this month's friendly double-header against Chile and Germany, Hart is under pressure with both club and country. But De Gea, who had to overcome his own troubles before sealing his status as one of the English Premier League's top goalkeepers, is certain Hart will not be out of the limelight for long. "Joe Hart is a great keeper," he said. "It's very complicated to play at the top level and to never make mistakes. "I am sure he will work very hard to go back into the first 11 and sooner or later he will make it."
Kangaroos players have brushed shoulders with some of the biggest names in world sport, including David Beckham, on a private visit to English Premier League club Manchester United.

The retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager at Manchester United now makes his fiercest rival Arsene Wenger the longest serving manager in the English Premier League. This rivalry left in its wake memorable on- and off-pitch moments reminiscent of the league's golden years: The Patrick Vieira - Roy Keane (dynamic captains and great midfielders) famous battles, the Thierry Henry - Ruud van Nistelroy (sublime finishers) top scorer 'fights' and numerous Wenger - Ferguson spats. Sir Alex Ferguson in recognition of his rivalry with Arsene Wenger dedicated a chapter in his new book to 'Competing with Wenger'. Two great football clubs. Two glorious managers.

Cristiano Ronaldo: A success story Cristiano Ronaldo was born on the 5th of Feburary 1985 in Santo Antino, Portugal. Portuguese maestro Cristiano Ronaldo started his career as a footballer with Portugal’s club Andorina. He rose to fame when he was brought to Manchester United by Sir Alex Ferguson from Sporting Lisbon. Gerard Houlier was the first to acknowledge Ronaldo’s talent when Houlier was working as Liverpool’s manager. Liverpool rejected an offer to sign him stating his skills were still underdeveloped and it would take him a few years to cope with top flight football in the English Premier League. Ronaldo moved closer to a move to Manchester United when sporting defeated Manchester United 3-1 in a friendly match in 2003.

SPORTS: UNITED WIN AS CHELSEA STUNNED BY EVERTON. Rooney makes triumphant return for Man United as Chelsea are beaten and Manchester City draw in English Premier League. Mesut Ozil made a satisfying debut for Arsenal in their comfortable 3-1 win at Sunderland [AFP] Wayne Rooney returned to give Manchester United manager David Moyes his maiden win at Old Trafford as the champions beat Crystal Palace 2-0, while Jose Mourinho suffered the first English Premier League defeat of his second spell at Chelsea. Rooney had missed United's defeat at Liverpool and England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine after suffering a gashed head in a training ground collision with team-mate Phil Jones. But, wearing a black headband to protect the damaged area, Rooney marked his return to action with his first goal of the season in the 81st minute. Robin Van Persie had struck from the spot to give United the lead in first-half stoppage-time after Palace's South African midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi was sent off fo ...
Now we start with the English Premier League. New managers for City, Chelsea, United, Everton. We'll be starting from Manchester United. David Moyes is a brilliant manager, and only a fool would question that. He has a lot of experience. Though we don't know if the Squad's happy with that decision. Rooney's certainly not happy. Persie chokes at times, same is with Welbeck, and Hernandez can't match the stamina level. Zaha's here, a new winger. Who'll play next to him? Will it be A. Young, Nani, or Valencia? Moyes has his own tactics of playing, but this a much bigger club that Everton, and with the Glazers, his job gets only tougher. Man. City. A new manager. Pellegrini has been quite amazing at Malaga, but again just like Moyes, City is a much bigger club than Malaga. The squad's not happy, Tevez is gone. They just have Aguero now, Nasri's there to support him along with David Silva, but there is no way. Absolutely no way City's winning the league. Pellegrini needs time, and it takes a lot of time for a ...

Manchester United Logo: Manchester United's emblem is similar to the coat of arms of the city of Manchester. In 1973 the three yellow diagonal stripes on a red background (found in the city's coat of arms) were replaced by a Red Devil on a yellow background, symbolic of Manchester United's Red Devils nickname. Manchester United Logo History: Manchester United Nicknames: Manchester United's most common nickname is The Red Devils, which actually goes back to the Manchester rugby club Salford, who were given the nickname Les Diables Rouges (The Red Devils) during an unbeaten 1934 tour of France. It was later adopted by supporters of Manchester United for their own similarly colored club. The club are also known as simply United or Man United.

Eight years without a trophy, Arsenal has been linked with the signing of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United but official communication has not been made since the player has been linked with Chelsea.

Thanks Tochukwu Augustine (Don Suker) for allowing me share our story. Thanks Adedoyin Famodun, didn't know I have an editor already...lol. Muchas gracias. I had a really hard time choosing between crossing my heart first to promise that this piece is not about football and to start by saying that Namadi Sambo and I agreed on only two important things throughout our National Youth Service Corps year in Borno State. Now that I have intimated you with my “dilemma” I shall proceed. One of the two things Sambo and I agreed upon was that John Terry of England and Chelsea Football Club was the best centre-back in the whole of the English Premier League in the 2007/2008 EPL season. Now, I must, at this point, say this: Namadi Sambo is a staunch Red Devil supporter (Manchester United fan to the threatened species of the uninitiated ;-)) and I love John Terry’s club. If you know anything about English football, you will surely know how much love these two English clubs have for each other. None. Now you shou ...
Sir Alex Ferguson wins 'Manager of the Year' award Former Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson was named ‘Manager of the Year’ by League Managers Association (LMA) for guiding the Red Devils to a record 20th English Premier League (EPL) title. Cardiff City’s Malky Mackay was named Championship Manager of the Year for leading his side to its first-ever promotion to the EPL, while Gary Johnson of Yeovil Town was honoured as League One Manager of the Year, at the LMA awards dinner on Monday. Gillingham’s Martin Allen won the League Two manager’s award. “In a way I am glad it is all over now because it has been hard work,” said Ferguson. Manchester United drew 5-5 with West Brom in Ferguson’s 1,500th and final game in charge of United. The 71-year-old, who won 38 trophies in the 26-year reign at Old Trafford, will be succeeded by Everton’s David Moyes, who takes over on July 1. “It has been overwhelming,” said Ferguson. “The club has been fantastic and congratulations to West Brom ...

It's all to play for as English Premier League giants Manchester United welcome their Spanish counterparts Real Madrid at Old Trafford for a mother of all Champions League encounters on Tuesday night.
Manchester United are plotting the biggest signing of the summer by bringing back old boy Cristiano Ronaldo in an astonishing £55million deal, according to the Daily Star. It is alleged the Real Madrid winger feels inadequately respected in Spain – believing La Liga fans favour Barcelona’s four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi over him.''Which They do'' This has made the prospect of a switch back to his old stomping ground in the English Premier League a tempting prospect for the footballing superstar, the newspaper claims. The move would see the Portugal international reunited with Reds manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who had a heavy influence on moulding the 28-year-old into the player he is today. I hope He comes. ¤Lee
Kwasi Appiah will travel to the United Kingdom after Ghana’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan in Kumasi on March 24, for a coaching attachment programme. Appiah will be on attachment for 21 days with English Premier League champions Manchester City, where he will understudy the coaching staff headed by Roberto Mancini, David Platt and Brian Kidd. This will be the second time Appiah would have had attachment at the Etihad Stadium. For Kidd, it would be another opportunity to mentor an African coach after he took Sam Arday under his wing when he was assistant manager of English giants Manchester United in 1996.
United chief exec Gill to step down: Manchester United's David Gill will step down in June after a decade as chief executive of the English Premier League Soccer club, United said on Wednesday. Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, a former investment banker with JP Morgan, will take on Gill's responsibilities although not the CEO title at the club, which is owned by the American Glazer family. Gill, 55, joined United in February 1997 as finance director and has been chief executive since 2003. He was in the role when the Glazers bought United in 2005 for £790 million in a deal that burdened the club with a heavy debt.

Like New Orleans, Like Nigeria By Onyekaba N. Charles When on Saturday, 9th February, 2013, the game between Manchester United and Fulham at Craven Cottage was delayed, due to the unusual power outage , there was so much unrest and panic in the stadium. The players and fans were lost as to what would have been responsible and probably how long it will take before it will be addressed, while the officials and management who seemed completely embarrassed ran 'helter-skelter' to address the issue. Credits to them, it took them just 9 minutes to proffer solution to the problem, yet the next morning all the Sunday tabloids in the UK captured the incident, some even went as far as terming it "embarrassing and disgraceful" not just to the English Premier League whose TV audience is over 4.7 billion but also to UK as a whole. The drama that followed the events at London continued the next day in far off New Orleans, where half the super-dome at the Super Bowl went dark. That, according to Greg Bishop of New Yor . ...
THE post-Mario Balotelli era at Manchester City began in lacklustre fashion as it was held to a 0-0 draw at Queens Park Rangers today that prevented it from making up ground on Manchester United. Victory for City would have cut United's lead to just two points, but instead Alex Ferguson's side will tackle Southampton tomorrow with an opportunity to re-open a seven-point lead at the English Premier League summit. The troublesome Italian striker is expected to complete a switch to AC Milan tomorrow, and City could have done with some extra firepower at Loftus Road. An injury to Vincent Kompany obliged the champion to start with Spanish midfielder Javi Garcia at centre-back, but it began with both Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero in attack as they sought to exploit bottom club QPR's defensive frailties. Joleon Lescott blazed an early chance over the crossbar from close range, while Pablo Zabaleta headed against the bar from a David Silva cross and Aguero had a goal ruled out for offside.

English Premier League strugglers Reading have joined the race for highly-rated Blackpool winger Tom Ince after submitting a formal offer in the region of £8 million for the England Under-21 international, Sky Sports understands. Ince, 20, has been heavily linked with a return to his former club Liverpool in recent weeks, but talks between the clubs regarding the 20-year-old winger have stalled. High-flying Capital One Cup finalists Swansea City entered the race for Ince earlier this month, but now Premier League newboys Reading have submitted a bid of around £8 million for the in-demand attacker. Ince, the son of former England, Internazionale, Liverpool and Manchester United star Paul Ince, has been absolutely brilliant since arriving at the Lancashire-based club from Liverpool in August 2011. The England Under-21 international has totaled 23 goals and 18 assists in 70 appearances (58 starts) in all competitions for Blackpool over the past two seasons, including 15 goals and 10 assists in 27 league ma ...
United's Late, Late Show Rolls On . Angry glares shot across the Manchester United penalty area last Sunday while Tottenham Hotspur's Clint Dempsey streaked away from goal in celebration. Deep into stoppage time, his goal had tied the game at 1-1, costing United two points in the English Premier League title race. So the defenders glared at each other and they glared at their goalkeeper. Because Manchester United is usually the team scoring late goals, not the one giving them up. "Anytime you can get a point when you're looking at defeat, it almost feels like a win," Dempsey said afterward. The late heroics may have belonged to Tottenham on Sunday, but as the past 20 years have shown, the undisputed champion of turning a game in the dying moments is Manchester United. Since the Premier League began in 1992, United has trailed going into the 80th minute in 128 games. And it avoided losing those games more than one fifth of the time, turning 28 of those would-be defeats into 24 draws and four victories, acc ...
Victor Wanyama: Why top clubs are being linked with Celtic’s wonderkid Celtic’s run to the last 16 of the Champions League has seen Neil Lennon’s side win the admiration of many across the continent. Impressive performances against Barcelona and safe passage from a difficult group bring more than just glory and prize money though, and Celtic’s star players are now attracting the attention of other clubs. The January transfer window has seen Gary Hooper attract bid from Norwich and the striker has also been scouted by Tottenham. Hooper’s team-mate Victor Wanyama has also been linked with English Premier League sides with Arsenal and Manchester United suggested as likely bidders. A virtual unknown when he completed a move from Belgian Pro League side Germinal Beerschot in July 2011, few knew if he would justify a reported transfer fee of £1 million. Celtic showed that they felt he would be a good long-term investment, handing Wanyama a four-and-a-half-year contract. In the eighteen months since, ...
WIGAN, ENGLAND — After failing to get a call for the Manchester United starting team, the club loaned Henríquez to Wigan. After playing two games in the FA Cup, coach Roberto Martinez brought the former Universidad de Chile striker his first taste of English Premier League action.
Manchester United and Arsenal negotiated testing replays in the FA Cup to both win 1-0 and reach the fourth round on Wednesday, while Chelsea’s slim title chances in the English Premier League were dented by squandering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Southampton. United was reliant on an early goal from England striker Wayne Rooney, playing his first game in three weeks after a knee injury, to squeeze past West Ham at Old Trafford and earn a match against Fulham. Rooney later missed a penalty. “In the FA Cup anything can happen so we are pleased to get through,” veteran United midfielder Ryan Giggs said. Arsenal left it late to seal a deserved victory at Emirates Stadium, with Jack Wilshere capping a superb display with an 86th-minute winner to knock out a tired-looking Swansea. Second-tier Brighton, the third-round conqueror of Newcastle, is next for Arsene Wenger’s team. “He is a complete midfielder,” Wenger said of Wilshere, who recently returned to action after a 14-month injury ab ...

World Sports News Fan anger mounts over EPL ticket prices Discontent among supporters over spiralling English Premier League ticket prices is mounting, as fans attempt to make their voices heard and even followers of sworn enemies join forces to call for change. Opposition reached a head after champions Manchester City returned 912 unsold tickets priced at 62 pounds ($A95) for Sunday's game at Arsenal, while fans brandished banners reading "Don't price us out of our game" and "62 and we're still here". The protest, compounded by claims that fans were threatened with arrest if they did not take down their placards, came after supporters of Manchester United and Liverpool joined together last week to express their anger at escalating costs. "We're looking at working with the arch-enemy Manchester United and others to put a bit of pressure on the clubs to introduce a cap for prices on away tickets," said Paul Martin, from Liverpool fan group Spirit of Shankly. "The rivalry will start to dwindle when the pric ...
Sport Football José Mourinho José Mourinho puts Chelsea on alert over desire to return to England • Real Madrid coach says English passion for football moves him • 'One day I will come back' Share inShare0 Email Dominic Fifield The Guardian, Monday 14 January 2013 22.30 GMT Jose Mourinho José Mourinho, the Real Madrid coach, watches Manchester United v Liverpool at Old Trafford. Photograph: Martin Rickett/PA José Mourinho has alerted elite Premier League clubs, principal among them his former employers Chelsea, to his potential availability in the summer by reiterating a desire to work in England again. The Real Madrid head coach's position at the Bernabéu has come under intense scrutiny in recent months as his side have slipped 18 points behind Barcelona and even trail their city rivals Atlético by seven points to leave the defence of the title effectively wrecked by the turn of the year. That has prompted suggestions he will leave the club at the end of the season but, while his standing has s ...
Tough choice on another brilliant summer's day (in most places anyway) ... get out and about in the sunshine or feast on sport from the couch. So what have you been doing? If it's sports watching there has been so much to pick from. What have you been taking in or have you been surfing? There's the NFL play-offs (49ers v Packers at the moment), HRV Cup cricket (Firebirds v Northern Knights), one-day international cricket (Australia v Sri Lanka), A League football (Wellington Phoenix v Wanderers) and rugby union (national sevens). Still to come in the early hours two great English Premier League football encounters (Manchester United v Liverpool and Arsenal v Manchester City) plus later tonight - but only for the brave - the second cricket Test between South Africa and the Black Caps (not pretty at all unfortunately).
The outcome of this season's English Premier League title race will be shaped by a tournament taking place 13,000 kilometres away in South Africa. The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off on January 19 when hosts South Africa tackle Cape Verde in Johannesburg and few sides in the English top flight will have their squads untouched by the competition. Defending champions Manchester City already have a seven-point gap on leaders Manchester United to chase down and their cause will not be helped by the absences of brothers Kolo and Yaya Toure, who play for the Ivory Coast. Yaya, 29, was the driving force behind last season's title success but his absence for the 2012 Cup of Nations coincided with a spell that saw City eliminated from the League Cup by Liverpool, knocked out of the FA Cup by United, and beaten 1-0 by Everton in the league. His elder brother, Kolo, has enjoyed a more prominent role this season, having established himself as the first-choice deputy to centre-backs Vincent Kompany and Matija Nas ...

English Premier League; Transfer News And Gossip Saturday's breaking transfer window gossip Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to use the money generated by his winter clear-out of players to fund a January move to sign Barcelona's 31-year-old striker David Villa. Manchester City are prepared to sell striker Mario Balotelli as soon as possible after manager Roberto Mancini privately conceded he cannot change the controversial 22-year-old. Tottenham are willing to listen to offers for midfielders Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone. Spurs are unlikely to allow Huddlestone, 26, to leave on loan, but a bid of around £3m could prove successful.

I am contemplating divorce because I do not think I can go on with this marriage. I got married 4 years ago and every time English Premier League, FA cup, Capital One Cup or EUFA champion's league are ongoing am usually in trouble. My husband is a die-hard fan of Manchester United and would do anything if his team wins or loses. When it loses any match I end up being on the receiving end and since I heard the team is nick named Red Devils I am wondering if my husband is a devil worshiper. Anyway I am just tired of bandages on my face whenever Man-U loses because I receive a serious beating which has affected me psychologically. I now fear him a lot though when Man-U wins like last night he is the best man in the world. I do not know what to do. I am tired of being beaten all in the name of a football team. Can't they just win all the time?

Manchester United were defeated by Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 at Old Trafford in the English Premier League over the weekend, with the Red Devils left to rue their poor start and costly turnovers by a much more focused and switched on Spurs outfit. Sir Alex Ferguson's men were greeted by the welcome return of England international Wayne Rooney into their Premier League lineup, having watched their star striker sit on the sidelines for the past few weeks due to a leg injury. Yet the return of Rooney was quickly forgotten by the dynamic attack and flowing play of Tottenham Hotspur, who finally showed manager Andre Villas-Boas that they are a top team in the EPL this year and can be a top-four threat once more. United were simply overrun and outgunned on their home pitch and must find the answers to several questions that stemmed out of the loss. Here are some points to ponder for the Red Devils and their fans, in light of their domestic and European fixtures to come over the next few weeks.

They may have not been able to match their form in the Champions League, as Chelsea knocked them out at the quarter-final stage, but with a spine consisting of Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and an electrifying Thierry Henry, the Gunners gave the English game some of the greatest football it’s ever seen.

MANCHESTER - Manchester United defender Phil Jones could be out of action for up to eight weeks with a knee injury, the English Premier League giants said Saturday. The 20-year-old suffered the injury during training earlier this week and was sent for a scan which has confirmed he faces a long lay-off. A club spokesperson told United’s official website, ManUtd.com: “Phil Jones has had surgery on a knee meniscus tear sustained in training that will require six to eight weeks of rehabilitation.” Jones has yet to make an appearance this term after suffering a back injury during the Reds’ pre-season tour.
