Prem Reaction: Wenger Admits Bolton Defeat A Big Blow
Goal.com – Nov 25, 2006

Regarding the implications of this defeat on the title race, Wenger added: “What kind of impact it will have I do not know. “But it is a big blow to lose. ”
Bolton had not won any of their previous five games, but Abdoulaye Faye headed them into an early lead and Anelka scored his first with a superb effort in first-half stoppage time, only for Gilberto Silva to halve the deficit almost immediately. But while Arsenal played some wonderdul football in their search for an equaliser, and struck the goal frame three times through Ljungberg, Fabregas and Adebayor, without Henry, van Persie and Rosicky they lacked the cutting edge to pierce Bolton’s rearguard again. And Anelka rubbed it in with another superb strike late on to seal it for the Trotters. Wenger added: “I am sad for my team because they gave a lot and played well. “But overall we did not control well the decisive moments in the game, particularly on the first goal.

Prem Preview: Manchester United-Chelsea
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
The difference is to be seen on the bench. Chelsea will have five full internationals waiting for a game, plus other international stars who don’t even make the bench. United are not so fortunate and the paucity of resources beyond the first team is the one factor that could yet derail progress this season. In the form they have displayed in the Premiership this term United’s first choice eleven should be more than a match for the comparatively dour Chelsea, and yet the Blues trump card is strength in depth over the marathon that is the Premiership campaign. A win would put United six points ahead, and it hasn’t escaped attention that Chelsea’s next two Premiership games are Bolton away and Arsenal at home. It’s time for a great game between the best two teams in the country, and perhaps – just perhaps – for some of those dreams to come true. Weaknesses?
The performance against Celtic demonstrated what is most infuriating about the Reds.

Prem Preview: Aston Villa-Middlesbrough
Goal.com – Nov 25, 2006
Motivation aside, it is going to be a tough test for the young manager as his lack of top flight managerial experience will be tested once again by a far more respected and proven manager, Martin O’Neill. But Southgate looked to be able to pull something out of the bag when playing teams with good defensive records, for example drawing with Arsenal and Bolton in succession, both away from home. Furthermore, let’s not forget the win against Chelsea, although that was on home soil. ADOPTING SIMILAR AWAY STRATEGY?
Looking at Boro’s away record, other than the opening game of the season, where they scored two goals and yet lost to Reading, they have only managed to register another two goals, while conceding six. The problem probably lies in both midfield and the attacking department while playing away, and before their midfielders start to supply defense piercing passes, Southgate may just have to resort to a more cautious approach. Maybe O’Neill is able to provide a lesson or two to his younger counterpart. As mentioned earlier, Villa play a different game when tackling home and away fixtures.

Primera Liga Preview: Valencia – Real Madrid
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Vicente has also had continuing issues with his ankles that have limited him to just one game in Valencia’s last nine outings. Asier Del Horno has been missing since June, when he was forced to withdraw from the Spain World Cup squad with a knee injury, and last weekend Edu damaged his cruciate ligaments in right knee, only a few months after battling back from the same injury in his other leg. As if all that were not bad enough, Sánchez Flores has now lost David Villa after tests confirmed this week that he would be missing for at least two weeks with a thigh injury. It is an incredible list and makes the team’s drop in form in recent weeks all the more understandable. That added to the alleged problems between Sánchez Flores and director of sport, and former player, Amadeo Carboni have only heightened the increasing struggle the team is facing to stay near the European places. Missing Keys
For Madrid, the list of absentees is nowhere near as long, but they too will be missing crucial players for the big game. In particular, Guti could well be missed as he is suspended after being sent off in last weekend’s victory over Racing Santander and Fabio Capello will have to move things around to find a creative midfielder.

Kenyon Targets World Domination, Ranieri Says United Have…
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
“But I think it’s pretty clear we can’t get to where we want to here. ”
How does Kenyon assess the significance of Sunday’s clash? He doesn’t think it will have much bearing on the final outcome of this season’s Premiership title race. “Sunday is not the deciding game, as much as we try to build it up,” he said. “I think we still have a long way to go in the season. “I think the team is the best team we’ve had in the three years I’ve been here. “In depth, I think the squad is tremendous, and I don’t actually think we’ve seen the best of Chelsea at this stage in the season. ”
However, Mourinho’s predecessor as Chelsea manager, Claudio Ranieri, believes that if the Blues win on Sunday it could shatter United’s title dream.

Primera Liga Preview: Barcelona – Villarreal
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Wherein a mean team would have been in crisis, they are leading the table, even if having to scrape through at times. They lost to a Real Madrid side much superior on the day, and were held by Valencia and Deportivo sides that got stuck into them, so they have struggled in those really big matches. However, they are not making it more difficult for themselves, by ensuring they do not drop careless points against the likes of Mallorca, Recreativo and Racing, and that is what will hold them in good stead. What’s more, they have even taken full points against the likes of Zaragoza, Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Osasuna, in what has been a very testing set of opening fixtures for them. It has not been as simple in the Champions League, having been paired with a much improved Chelsea and a very aggressive Werder Bremen. Their lack of rythm was exposed by two quality sides, but again, they were within minutes of a win over Chelsea, battled for a point in Bremen, and made sure no mistakes were made against Levski, thus keeping their prospects in their own hands. Next in line are Villarreal, another team who could easily return from Camp Nou with points under their belt, and Rijkaard will be looking for much of the tenacity that has seen even Valencia and Chelsea only take home draws.

Emerson Only Doing His Job
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
“I am calm,” he said. “My job is to work for the team and to do what the coach asks and to try and help my team-mates. “A player should always play for the team. I do not look to do the spectacular, that is not my job.

Uefa Cup Group C Wrap: Sevilla And Liberec Cruise
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Juande Ramos’ side took their excellent league form into the encounter and attacked their Portuguese visitors from the start as Adriano Correia, Luis Fabiano and Ernesto Chevanton all went close. Braga did not cause Andrés Palop many problems and it was no surprise when they fell behind five minutes before the interval when Fabiano connected with a Correia cross to beat Paulo Santos. Home favourite Frédéric Kanouté then went close to doubling Sevilla’s advantage as they they showed no let up in their attacking. With all their chances, Braga will consider themselves fortunate to have left after conceding only one more goal, that arrived in minute 76 through Chevanton.

Prem Preview: Charlton Athletic-Everton
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Bent will be hoping to repeat what he has done so many times at The Valley which is simply to net the back of the net. Currently sitting in 4th place in the race for the golden boot in the Premiership, Bent will be trying to help revive his club out of the tough situation they are in at the moment by doing what he does best, scoring goals!
Everton: Andy Johnson. The bald striker has hit a bit of a form slump recently, not being able to score in well over a month but is also sitting in 4th place in the race for the golden boot in the Premiership with his English counterpart Darren Bent. Johnson will be hoping to break that goal drought and get back to scoring ways like he delivered at the beginning of the season for Everton. PREDICTIONCharlton 2 – 2 EvertonBoth teams will be looking for maximum points as Charlton are desperate to get away from the dangerous relegation zone while Everton are dreaming of the Champions League which will surely make this a very exciting match to watch. Darren Bent and Andy Johnson to be amongst the goals in this entertaining encounter at the Valley.

CL Reflections: British Clubs Put On A Decent Show
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Their result (a 1-0 defeat) set up a fascinating battle for the other qualification place in Group A between Werder and holders Barcelona in two weeks’ time. Jose Mourinho was inevitably unhappy about losing, and also about the origin of the decisive goal: Torsten Frings was the victim of a slip rather than a foul as Werder were awarded a free-kick. But the Chelsea defence received a warning they did not heed when the giant Per Mertesacker got in a dangerous header from the free-kick that was deflected for a corner, then repeated the trick unopposed to beat Carlo Cudicini powerfully from the flag kick as Didier Drogba mistimed his jump. Mourinho admitted the only defeats he tolerates are those at the hands of his children; but the mercurial tactician had not realised Chelse were through until a post-match interviewer confirmed it. The Blues therefore face United on Sunday with the slight advantage of knowing that their Champions League destiny is decided. Liverpool had already clinched theirs before they entertained PSV Eindhoven at Anfield on Wednesday. Their battle with the Dutch Eredivisie leaders was purely to decide which of the two would go into the pots for the round of 16 draw as Group C winners.

Uefa Cup Group E Reaction: Hughes Pleased With Professional…
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
It was a professional European display,” he said. “We knew it was important to start well and not allow them to get any momentum. “We took the sting out of the game right from the off. They could not get a foothold. “Certainly in the first half we dictated play. It took Feyenoord a long time to really affect the game.

Prem Preview: Liverpool – Manchester City
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
This fixture will be a massive test for Barton, and he must look to improve on last season’s corresponding fixture where he was sent off against Liverpool. On the whole, Manchester City will be looking to turn the tables around from last season in which they lost both league games to Liverpool by the solitary goal on both occasions. The midfield drive and presence of Barton will be crucial for City this weekend, and City must also be careful of not giving Steven Gerrard the chance to dictate the outcome of this clash. Barton’s performance will be crucial to stopping Gerrard, and Stuart Pearce will know that if they can manage to minimise the involvement of Gerrard, their chances of coming away with something in this fixture will be greatly improved by achieving this. Struggling ScorersManchester City can point out one issue in particular which has seen them travel so poorly away from home in the Premiership this season, and that is the lack of goals scored. City have only managed to score three goals in six games on their travels this season, in which they have lost five out of their six fixtures. Their last away goal was nearly two months ago, and surprisingly so it was the last time they traveled to Merseyside when they drew 1-1 with Everton.

Something Has To Give – Cole
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
A victory for Manu will give them an unassailable lead for the season. My GREEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chelsea will not allow that to happen. Drogba please tell the whole world that you are ripe for the world footballer of the year. MAN-U DONT PLAY FOOTBALL FOR FUN NOR CHELSEA,I GUESS THAT IS WHAT WE KNOW OF ARSENAL. THEY REALLY ENJOY PLAYING THAN SCORING BUT BOTH TEAMS HERE ALWAYS AIM AT THE GOAL.

Secret checks on investors

6 million takeover of the Midlands club in August. The Premier League refused to disclose the identity of the company they have hired to carry out the forensic work. But they said it was not Quest, the intelligence company chaired by Lord Stevens who are presently carrying out an investigation into irregular payments in transfer deals. One big kick-off againThe Premiership will kick off on the same day as the Football League for the first time in a decade next season after the country’s top 20 clubs agreed to accommodate a four-week break between the end of the domestic campaign and the Euro 2008 finals. Sven-Goran Eriksson successfully campaigned for the month-long pause to help his side prepare more thoroughly for the World Cup in Germany. Even though he left in July, FA chiefs insist the break is crucial if England are to stand a chance in Switzerland and Austria. With Fifa also introducing another international date at Easter, it means the Premier League will have to start the campaign a week earlier than normal on Aug 11 to squeeze in all their fixtures… The Premier League refused to disclose the identity of the company they have hired to carry out the forensic work.

Prem Preview: Fulham-Reading
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
Last week’s 3-1 defeat at Man City should bring about squad changes and hopefully he might give Routledge a full game as I see him as being a creative force who can start to convert the opportunities. Jensen and Boa Morte combine well , with their display against Everton still fresh in my mind , so maybe Coleman will go with McBride on the bench to start and put Helguson on instead. Let’s not forget this is a player who knocked in 64 in 199 for Watford, so he knows how to score, with head or feet. Factoid: Fulham have yet to score a goal before the 40th minute in all competitions. Coppell-Load Of This!
Reading moved up 3 places in the league last week due to their 2-0 win over Charlton. A just reward for a side that has adjusted as well as they have , all things considered. They are currently ranked 10th for both their away record ( 2-0-4 and their home (4-1-2) but 8th overall.

Schuster May Watch Getafe At Home
Goal.com – Nov 24, 2006
“I would prefer to pay for the game and see it in my house rather than see it from a seat in the stands,” he explained. “Watching it at the stadium will do me no good at all. I do not know if I will go to the stadium at all and will have to wait and see before I decide. ”
In a close game in El Madrigal last Sunday, Schuster became incensed after a certina refereeing decision and made his feelings known, only to be sent from the dug-out. Getafe lost the game 1-0 thanks to an own goal from goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri and slipped down to seventh after missing the chance to move into the Champions League places. After an impressive first-season in charge of the club last term, Schuster was linked with taking the reins at Real Madrid during the summer.

Primera Liga Report: Ronaldinho Wonder-Goal Seals Barca…
Goal.com – Nov 25, 2006
Villarreal had the first chance in the third minute, when Forlan broke up the left and threaded a pass for Jose Mari, but an alert Valdes got to the ball just as the forward was ready to pull the trigger. Valdes was forced to clear again in the 6th minute as Puyol came under pressure from Jose Mari. It was not until the 9th minute that Barcelona made their first move, with Deco and Inesta finding Ronaldinho in space on the left. The Brazilian evaded his marker and squared it for Deco who forced Barbosa into a save from 15 yards out. Slowly but surely, Barcelona began to settle in, with Giuly and Gudjohnsen being adjudged marginally offside after a couple of good passing moves. Gio and Zambrotta were pushing up the flanks, as the Catalans got into the groove. Villarreal were looking to hit Barca on the break, and the 19-year-old Marcos forced Valdes to come outside the area and clear in desperation in the 24th minute.
