The Red vs Red Podcast – Episode 32 – Wigan Wins and Loses

What an amazing atmosphere on Sunday at Old Trafford as fans of the Red Devils sent Sir Alex Ferguson out in style with a 2-1 win over Swansea. Even more, the parade on Monday had an amazing turnout. It was remarkable to watch on the internet here in the States. It has also been a very good finish to the year for Liverpool who came back from 1-0 to win 3-1 at Fulham thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s hat trick.

The Red vs Red Podcast – Episode 28 – Liverpool’s European Chances

Manchester United’s loss in the FA Cup on Monday is really no big deal. The fact remains that United are still 15 points clear of City heading into the Manchester Derby this Monday. United haven’t won the F.A. Cup in a while so yeah sure it would have been nice to move on in the competition but frankly I’d much rather them focus on winning the Premier League title and this Monday will be a fixture that could decide it. However, Chelsea’s loss on Saturday to Southampton has opened the door for Liverpool to get back into the European discussion.

I couldn’t have been a bigger Everton fan over the weekend. Thanks to the Blues 2-0 win over the Noisy Neighbours, United now have a 15 point gap at the top of the table with 27 points left. Time is running out on City and if they stumble in their next fixture, United could potentially clinch the Premier League title against the champions! Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves just yet. There is a tricky fixture in two weeks at Sunderland followed by a F.A Cup replay two days later in London vs Chelsea before the big home game vs the Citizens. Oh yeah, Mike and the Reds find themselves stunned after a tough loss against relegation candidate Southampton. Ouch.

Red vs Red – Episode 26 – No Freakin Way

There is no freaking way that was a Red Card. If that’s a red card, I’m quitting playing soccer. How is it possible that a guy who is LOOKING AT THE BALL be sent off? He didn’t know that Arbeloa (or whoever that whiny wimp from Real Madrid was) was coming at him. United were cruising until I witnessed by far the WORST call ever in Champions League history. Worst. Just makes you wonder how much Mr. Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir was paid off. If United would have lost it ON THE PITCH, then I tip my cap to Madrid and say good luck the rest of the way. I can’t shake this one though because the referee basically stole the game from us. Yeah I said us. Stole it from Sir Alex, stole it from the fans of Manchester United, hell stole it from the Premier League itself. What a joke. I hope this man never refs a game again.

After Saturday’s win over QPR United found themselves 15 points clear of the Champions however Chelsea laid an egg on Sunday and decided not to show up so the lead is now 12 points. 7 wins and a draw is all that’s left to clinch United’s 20th league title.

The Red vs Red Podcast – Episode 23 – Dude? Stay in the Goal!

Liverpool found themselves in great position over the weekend to take 3 full points from one of the league’s toughest foes in Manchester City. Daniel Sturridge has been magnificent since coming over from Chelsea. He’s helped shoulder the goal scoring load and helped make guys like Downing and Henderson get into good form. Then you have Pepe Reina who single handedly gave Manchester City the lifeline they needed to escape out of this fixture with a 1-1 draw. Ugh. The gap going into that game for City had been 10 points. Now United’s lead over the Champs stands at 9 heading into a tough home fixture vs Everton and Champions League play starting back up next week.

It has been a few weeks but we’re back after Mike’s voyage to the United States. Liverpool find themselves in a decent position in the table just a few points back from European play next season. Though they fell flat on their faces over the weekend to Oldham in the F.A. Cup. United meanwhile continue to roll in cup play and advanced over Fulham. They’ll play Fulham again on Saturday at the home of Michael Jackson’s statue. Liverpool meanwhile have a big fixture on Super Bowl Sunday against Manchester City.

The Red vs Red Podcast – Episode 21 – United Win but Liverpool May Have Found Answers

Manchester United wins the Northwest Derby 2-1 over Liverpool but yet in the 2nd half you would have thought Liverpool were the team a top the Barclay’s Premier League table. Ok maybe that’s a little far fetched but regardless Liverpool were a much better team in the 2nd half as they brought on their newly signed striker from Chelsea, Daniel Sturridge. Couple that with some injuries that United sustained in the back 4 (Vidic…again) and what should have been a comfortable win for United turned into a squeaker. At the time, United’s win pushed them 10 points clear of 2nd place City. Here we are in mid January and United have taken 55 points from a possible 66. That is outstanding. To think, they haven’t been healthy much at all this year, Rooney, Vidic, Anderson, Nani, Young, Kagawa just goes to show the true depth of this United squad.

If you had money on Rio Ferdinand getting cut in the eye due a coin thrown at his face in the game, well you’d be a winner, and likely a gambler with a problem. This fixture had it all, goals, flair, passion, edge of your seat excitement. The only thing surprising to me was seeing Sir Alex and Roberto Mancini actually getting along on the sidelines. United’s win puts them 6 points clear in the Barclays Premier League. They had an 8 point advantage a year ago and lost. Is the title United’s for the taking?

At least QPR hired a manager that is pretty good in Harry Redknapp. Liverpool struggled over the weekend to a 0-0 draw with Swansea while United fell behind in the 2nd half against QPR only to rally for a win.

My beloved Cincinnati Bengals played in the Super Bowl just two weeks prior to Spurs winning at Old Trafford on February 5, 1989. That’s a REALLY long time.
