I have a feeling there will be an upset this weekend, but don't know which underdog will step up.
 
2014-01-18 07:32:49 AM
Since the Reds hate true prosperity, it will probably be them

Unfreakable: I have a feeling there will be an upset this weekend, but don't know which underdog will step up.


I reckon it'll be Man Utd to upset Chelsea

Dear Chelsea,

Please destroy Man U, maybe give a few of their players a couple of injuries

Thanks

Norfolking Chance: I reckon it'll be Man Utd to upset Chelsea


It's possible, but they're without Rooney and Van Persie. Chelsea would have to really blow it at home.

Sunderland 0 Southampton 1 (Rodriguez, 4) 

Of course.

Gsm136: Sunderland 0 Southampton 1 (Rodriguez, 4) 

Of course.


Sunderland's been doing better the last few games. They're not nearly out of this.

It's either them or Villa, Cardiff and Fulham. Of all of them Man Utd are most able to upset the other team. Jose will set Chelsea up not to loose and without a top class striker all it will take is a bit of luck one way or another to get a 1-0.

Arsenal have injuries but Fulham look just as bad as they allways have, Cardiff have a new manager and didn't have a new manager bounce and Villa just haven't got going.

-Grin-

Mackems conceding an early goal is always a pip to the spirit.

FFPL report to follow during the main batch of games.

Oh yea, it's only 10 minutes in. Just been in this position too many times so far, a good match followed by a total collapse.

At the moment, the Saints are running the Mackems off the pitch. So maybe Sunderland will invert that. Start off scrambling, then net a couple goals. Whatever they're going to do, they better do it quick.

Coming soon to NBCSN, the 7-second delay.

Morning guys

0-2. Sunderland looks lost....

And they score to make it 1-2

Saints reminding Sunderland why they're in the top half of the table AAAAAAND Sunderland comes back with a goal.

This game just got very interesting

He may well be a Sunderland native, in which case there is nothing more we can do to him.

Your MIGHTY Oxford United update: After taking a 2-0 lead at the Valley in the pouring rain, the MIGHTY ones ended up drawing 2-2. That was Tuesday's FA Cup 2nd round match. The replay will be at Kassam Stadium, which worries me, as the MIGHTY Oxford United are better away from home.

As for today, they have a match against semi-local rivals Wycombe Wanderers, a club that former OUFC chairman, rich asshole and boat suicide specialist Smilin' Bob Maxwell threatened to merge with back in the '90s. As a bitter grudge holder, I want to see them destroyed.

Good thing I decided against banking Southampton. They squandered their good start to the match.

Come on Sunderland, I just need one more goal!
 
2014-01-18 09:24:07 AM
Gotta give Poyet credit: if it had been Fulham or Di Canio's Sunderland, the game would be 4-0 by now.
 
2014-01-18 09:24:47 AM
I had this one as a draw so all good here

I think you're right. Also, that ankle twist looked painful.

If that's the case, I've used firstrowus1.eu, although recently I stopped because the site is telling me I need to download a new video plugin and I don't trust it

Depending on your cable/sat provider, you may be able to get the official NBC stream. Go to nbcsports.com and follow the links. I don't understand how the rules work: I can stream all the games even though my Dish Network package doesn't include any of the NBC sports channels.

Failing that, "unofficial" free streams are aggregated by firstrow, at firstrowus1.eu -- the first two streams for a game are typically HD that require a client install so I stay away from those. Also be aware that available streams may well not be listed until a few minutes before the game starts, and quality can vary enormously.

I just go to link 3 or above. Those never have that plugin nonsense.

If I don't want to watch City or Arsenal, what game should I watch?  I was thinking either Norwich/Hull or West Ham/Newcastle.

It won't be true after tomorrow, so just a reminder. If United had won the four home games they lost, they'd be top of the table. It isn't difficult to be competitive in this league.

If City remembered that away matches aren't practice, they'd be running away with the title.

RVP, Rooney, Jones, Evans, Nani, Young and Fellaini are already injured.

David Moyes is the manager.

What more do you want?
