Barry was later sent off and Charlton were able to take advantage of the extra man at the death. Pardew believes his first win as manager at The Valley will have caused concern among the other Premiership strugglers. “This is not a turning point but it has put pressure on other clubs who are in the bottom half of the table,” said Pardew
“This result will have been a kick in the teeth for the management and staff at five or six other clubs. You have to draw them in and put them under pressure. “Some of those clubs I’m talking about play under greater pressure than we do. “We’ve got a great opportunity now, we have some nice home games to come and we have seven or eight to win. ”
Reflecting on Charlton’s performance against Villa, Pardew said:
“In the first half we were feeling the after-effects of Wednesday’s draw with Fulham. – Prem Reaction: Managers Agree After Vicarage Clash… – Dec 30, 2006
Watford boss Boothroyd said: “I’m pleased with some of the performances today and the good thing is now we have another game in hand and we have to win it. “The match could not go on. We don’t want players injured, people pay good money to be entertained and it was a bit of a farce. “We played well up until the monsoon and on another day, if the weather had been different, we might have got the three points. ”
Jewell added: “It was the only decision to make. It was unplayable and the match couldn’t continue. – Prem Preview: Liverpool-Bolton Wanderers – Dec 31, 2006
Squad: Jaaskelainen, Hunt, Meite, Faye, Ben Haim, Giannakopoulos, Speed, Campo, Nolan, Diouf, Anelka, Davies, Walker, Pedersen, Gardner, Vaz Te, Tal, Teimourian, Fojut. Last Starting XI: Jaaskelainen, Ben Haim, Hunt, Meite, Campo, Faye, Nolan, Speed, Anelka, Davies, Diouf (Pedersen 82’)
Steven Gerrard: While he may be having a quiet season by his lofty standards, look for Gerrard to play a big role in Liverpool’s 2007 exploits. The first half of the season may not have been ideal for Gerrard in regards to goals and assists, however he is the sort of player that finishes well and Liverpool will look to their inspirational captain to lead them to a Champions’ League place. Bolton
Nicolas Anelka: Le Sulk has been anything but for Bolton this season. The Frenchman has hit a rich vein of form and he has scored seven times in his last eight matches. After a slow start to his Bolton career, Anelka has been unstoppable as of late. Should his form continue like so, it could mean that Anelka’s poor reputation may have to be reassessed.

Cheers, tears and butts
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Dec 31, 2006
MUST BE IN THE HEAD. getTime()); Cheers, tears and butts – Times Online… Graham Poll: sent home in disgrace from Germany after showing Croatia’s Josip Simunic three yellow cards. Faithfully promised never to referee a competitive international again. Until he generously agreed to handle the Euro 2008 qualifier between Poland and Serbia & Montenegro in September. Santhi Soundarajan: won a silver medal in the women’s 800m at the Asian Games. Disqualified for failing a gender test. Jade Johnson: accused her fellow long jump minx Kelly Sotherton of “lacking respect” and “shouting and raving”. Dignity lost in process. – Prem Reaction: Pearce Praises Determination – Dec 30, 2006
Pearce said: “I think over the last two games we’ve showed a steely determination and resilience about our play, unlesss you show that on a daily basis, you are not going to get results on the road or claim back to back wins. ”
City have switched to a 3-5-2 formation for their back-to-back victories, but Pearce felt the players determination was the main reason for the improvement in results. He added: “We felt at the time that we had to change one or two things and freshen up a touch. I think the formation lent itself to the likes of Nedum Onuoha coming back to full fitness. “So whether you put it down to the change of the shape or whatever, no matter what shape you play, if you show that sort of determination to keep the ball out of the net you are going to get the opportunity to win a match. – Ronaldo Beats Mourinho To Top Portuguese Award – Dec 31, 2006
Ronaldo is not Becks, so he can actually handle attention and maintain his head and composure. His response to hte English media and fans is proof of this. also you can’t possibly compare Ronaldo and Becks. hte only reason Becks was bought by REal Madrid was his commercial value. Ronaldo is one of hte best in the world at ONLY 21. – Prem Preview: Middlesbrough-Sheffield United – Dec 31, 2006
One thing’s for sure , the skill level in this one won’t be the deciding factor…more to do with who wants it the most; who’s got the stronger desire ; who’s got the fighting spirit?
This is a massive 6 pointer for all concerned, and any gap that Sheffield can open at this stage of the season will be worth almost double in terms of psychological advantage, while Middlesbrough cannot afford to let slip any more home points against bottom half sides from here on in. Keeping It Tight At Home
Gareth Southgate will step out as manager for the 23rd game with Middlesbrough, and in that time his record stands as P22 : W5 D6 L11. Not the best run of results by any stretch of the imagination but for someone who is so inexperienced he can be relatively happy with that. I’m not suggesting that it is acceptable , but for a person in his situation it’s not that awful. He has kept the Home form intact with P11 : 5-2-4 , and ,most likely ,this is the main reason for his continued tenure , but it creates a lot of pressure for each subsequent visit and you have to wonder how long they can keep this Jekyll and Hyde performance going. 2007 starts with a really hard January and 5 ties in all. There is the Carling Cup meeting with Hull (A) on 6th , followed by Charlton (A) , Bolton (H) and Portsmouth (A). – Prem Reaction: Allardyce Hails Team’s Fitness – Dec 31, 2006
Three wins over the Christmas is credit to the players’ fitness. ”
Beaten Pompey manager Harry Redknapp commended his goalkeeper:
“David James has been fantastic for me. He’s had an incredible season and we would not be where we are had it not been for him. “We passed the ball around for first 20 minutes and looked fantastic. “But we knew it was going to be hard. They keep coming and make it difficult for you. Eventually they got the breaks but they’ve a lot of ability as well.

One source said that Strahan’s bitterness (hidden behind that gap toothed smile) was Ripa’s salary was way more than he made, and being a star defensive back of NFL fame, he fought a tough battle to conceal his resentment toward Ripa. But if he had only stopped to think that in time, he would have been well compensated for his work with Ripa.You also should read the shot Fake Oakleys like a putt.
