Manchester United win over 10 man Palace

Manchester United enjoyed a 2-0 over a ten man Crystal Palace side, in a game where we saw the English Premier League title holders struggle to string together any decent passes and give any indication that David Moyes has any idea of how to get the best of his squad of players. The only positive to take way from the Red Devils’ performance was that both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie scored, even though their actual performances were far

Stoke upset City, Arsenal held and Chelsea and Everton rack up 9 goals between them

In what was a turbulent weekend for Premier League football, we had a foray of goals and several managers choking to defend their selections. First we go to Stoke where they managed to record their first win of the season against title-holders Manchester City. Though they were rightfully aggrieved in the first-half not to have had a penalty when Kolarov tripped Diouf, but on the 58th minute mark he managed to slot one past Joe Hart. This nearly became two

Manchester City 2 – 0 Newcastle Liverpool              2 – 1 Southampton Arsenal                 2 – 1 Crystal Palace Tottenham           1 – 0 West Ham While this is obviously too early to

Community Shield drama as the biggest victory in 16-years hits the headlines

With Arsenal and Manchester City duelling it out for the first trophy-win of the season, there was always going to be a story to be told, but few would have bet it would have said ‘Arsenal trounce City with a 3-0 victory.’ In fact, those who watched the game may have been a little bewildered themselves as City, though starting weak, did in fact have 58% of the overall possession and 11-shots vs the 8-shots Arsenal took (although the fact

Commonwealth Games Come to a Close and more updates from the Transfer Market news

In what was another successful Commonwealth Games, England saw themselves finish 1st with a medal tally of 174 including 58-gold, 59-silver and 57-bronze medals. Largely due to some very skilled performances in the Swimming and Gymnastics Artistic, England climbed their way into 1st place and perhaps their only vice was that they were unable to clinch the coveted ‘most-gold medalled’ athlete triumph which went to Canadian Patricia Bezzoubenko for her Gymnastics Rhythmic performances which earned her 6 medals – 5

Germany win World Cup while hosts Brazil humiliated twice

In what can only be described as one of the most back-and-forward tournaments we have had, the 2014 World Cup had the world rooting for underdogs and gasping at fallen greats.

Many were backing Germany from the start of the competition as their clinical precision was leaving teams standing in their wake but it seemed like they struggled against

Liverpool at the top of the EPL Table

A Spurs own goal in the 2nd minute of play by Younes Kaboul put off the visitors from the start, and Luis Suarez then made it 2-0 in the 25th minute as a result of a defensive blunder by Michael Dawson.

It took a brace by Martin Skrtel and Raheem Sterling to compound Arsenal to a defeat that would see them drop from the top spot into 2nd place.
