LucklessWonder: /How's Liverpool doing...


Liverpool won, United lost. Not sure how the MIGHTY Oxford United has done most recently

Ah, the old reverse perfect. About -800 on the day, I think...

dietbubba: Rooney looked like he had some tasty words for Webb


Mostly along the lines of, "I thought you were on OUR side!"

They've fallen into the playoff part of the table but have a couple of games in hand because today's game and Saturday's game has been postponed.

Nice to see a bit of fight (and in the Hull game too), but results-wise United just cannot compete with the top teams. I think that's one win in nine games against the top nine.

Valencia strikes me as not very intelligent. You know how some players have a picture of their mind of everything around them. He just ... doesn't.

The diving is ridiculous.

A Romanian winning MOTM. The Daily Mail won't be happy.

I really thought United would pull a goal in those last 10 minutes. I honestly don't know how they didn't.

Of course predictor chose to ignore my Chelsea-Saints pred and gave me a 2-1 Saints win instead. +80 instead of +100.

Does anyone think that Tim can go on a Di Matteo- ish run and win the FA Cup and the Europa Title?

If that happens AVB wouldn't even be able to manage the development team he had Adebayor relegated to.

Valencia seems to be a very instinctive player. That's why I like to see him partnered with Fabio. Fabio has a habit of running to where Valencia needs to play the ball which leads Valencia to follow his instincts. Without that, Valencia tends to get down the wing and then... not know what to do next. Worst case, he will stop completely and stand there doing a bunch of stepovers like a complete and utter Nani.

Yes. Yes it is. And I say that as a Man Utd fan.

You mean Rafael. Fabio is the one who started the CL final 2.5 years ago but can't get a game at all now. Play central defenders or wingers at full-back, anyone except an actual full-back. But yeah, you're right.

ADubs86: Assaidi has been a class act for Stoke. Can't wait for him to come back into our side next season.

FFPL scores up, natch.

I've moved up into Global 24th. Puts me on the first page and makes me quite nervous.

And to see their chances of success as long as Tan is there, regardless of manager; just look at your Fark handle.

Yes I do. I was questioning that even as I wrote it, but couldn't be bothered to check it because hey, it's Fark.

Last season Fabio was out on loan at QPR, but he's back this year. IIRC (and chances of that are pretty slim, it turns out) he's had one Prem start and warmed the bench a few times. I'd love to see him displace Evra, but he seems to be very fragile.

689908: Nails it.


Yep. Rooney hitting precision long passes onto RvP's feet = deadly. Wingers hitting high balls into nobody in particular = deathly. Desperately need that attacking midfielder.

BTW, I once confused Marcus and Michael Vick in an American football thread, so mixing up two identical twins is pretty small potatoes for me.
