Thoughts on the weekend

Thoughts on the weekend

Charlton's fortunate win leaves Sheff Utd in squeaky bum time, Warnock's team don't score any goals which, naturally enough, is not good....

Man United blew away Blackburn (despite Rooney being shite again) and looking at their upcoming fixtures:
Sat 07 Apr Portsmouth - Manchester United
Tue 17 Apr Manchester United - Sheff Utd
Sat 21 Apr Manchester United - Middlesbrough
Sat 28 Apr Everton - Manchester United
Sat 05 May Manchester City - Manchester United
Wed 09 May Chelsea - Manchester United
Sun 13 May Manchester United - West Ham

in the form United are in, the next 3 games look like wins, Everton will be tough but winnable and the Manchester derby should be won. However, any dropped points on the run in and a loss to Chelscum could see United need to beat the Hammers to win the title. All United fans will know what happened the last time that needed to happen, United drew 1-1 with Andy Cole, in particular, missing chance after chance, and United lost the title to Blackburn, who lost to Liverpool, meaning a win would have seen United champions.

Chelsea were very lucky against Watford, but United have won a few in added time themselves, and, earlier in the season, were lucky to win 2-1 away to Watford in a very poor match. Keeps the title race interesting over the next few weeks.

I'm sure the phone-in people are calling for Wenger's head, he certainly hasn't done well this season, with the 4-1 to Liverpool a very poor result, however, this is no more than an anomaly as Crouch again showed he is a quality player. I expect big purchases in the summer which will make the Arse compete more.

Myself or JJ will be back tomorrow to preview the Champions league snorefest of PSV vs Liverpool where 2 of the most defensive coaches in Europe go head to head.

No way should Wenger be sacked quality manager, needs to see a bit of sense though and stop his team farting around passing the ball nicely in front of the opposition goal. Thought a player like Baptista would give them a little more up-front but he just looks fat and Adeboyor(can't spell his name) actually looked miles better.Watched the Liverpool game, Arsenal weren't especially bad but the pool were great, Crouchy hat-trick? I was laughing for the whole game,he's just a player you laugh at when he's playing but doing well whenever he plays
