Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

What seemed like not much of a title race in England has suddenly become a contest as Chelsea's win on Saturday has given Manchester United a reason to feel some pressure.

Chelsea's win against Tottenham means Manchester United will need to secure all three points from its visit to Arsenal today in order to avoid losing even more ground heading into their meeting with Chelsea next week.

In other action today, West Ham will travel to Manchester with hopes of pumping some new life into a nightmare season. The last-place Hammers need a road win to have any chance of escaping what seems like inevitable relegation.

    It’s hard to be a Manchester United supporter when you know Vidic just made an extremely unsporting play…

  2. liz says:

    Normally I’m not one to complain about refs but this guy…meh

  3. RedLine55 says:

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Let us supplement this beautiful day of football with our cutting commentary and occasional snide observations. Good day.

    0-0 at halftime at the Emirates. Vidic had a handball in the box that wasn’t given. And that was about the extent of the excitement. Back and forth.

  4. chris says:

    Vidic should have just caught the ball

  5. glaing says:

    +1 However the ref needed help from the linesman.

  6. Chris D. says:

    It’s hard to have Chicharito score when there’s no short passing from United! The inclusion of Valencia would change such an issue, in my opinion.

  7. Brent McD says:

    Valencia, the man with no left foot.

  8. Chris D. says:

    Proof’s in the pudding, my friend.

  9. Brent McD says:

    not saying he’s not a good player, but if i was defending him i would force him onto his left every time.

    GREAT GOAL. RAMSEY!!!

  10. Citronomics says:

    Composed first touch strike by Ramsey!

  11. Jack says:

    RAMSEY! Nice to have you back.

  12. Brent McD says:

    “Can Arsenal hold a lead?” — a very good question

  13. Chris D. says:

    At this rate? Yes. If Ferguson makes good subs… No.

  14. glaing says:

    Berbatov and Giggs for Carrick and Park?

  15. canchon says:

    Shouldn’t the question be “how will Arsenal find a way to blow this lead?” based on their luck this season?

  16. Citronomics says:

    Crucial save by Szczesny to preserve the lead.

  17. canchon says:

    Should have been a penalty on Arsenal there for stepping on the leg of Owen at the top of the box. Thought that was it.

  18. RedLine55 says:

    in Yank news, Spector is in the starting XI again for West Ham against Man City. City has been rough against our Americans lately, hopefully de Jong doesn’t do anything silly!

  19. GeorgeGunner says:

    Arsenal WIN, we were the better team for all 90+ minutes
    even if we don’t win the league, F@%%K OFF united

  20. Brent McD says:

    el inSpector starting at midfield for the Hammers. hope they can get a result at City

  21. Brent McD says:

    LOL +1

  22. Zach says:

    Death. Taxes. West Ham fighting relegation.

  23. timmytwoshoezzz says:

    When you have Spector in your starting central midfield, you likely deserve to go down

  24. canchon says:

    To: Arsenal From: Chelsea Thanks for not blowing it this week. By the way, do you want a striker? I heard you’ll have over $50 mil from selling Cesc. We’ve got someone available for that price.

  25. Brent McD says:

    we’ll take Drogba. you can keep Torres ;)

  26. Brent McD says:

    What’s up with Scotty Parker? Thought I saw him in the stands at Stamford Bridge yesterday?!!?

  27. Isaac says:

    Spector isn’t anywhere near is bad as you’re suggesting. He’s a downgrade from Parker for sure, but not a half bad replacement. He’s twice set up his team mates with good opportunities against Chelsea and City respectively that they should have finished.

  28. Isaac says:

    Spector is doing a good job providing composure from deep and a spark in advanced areas, as well as nice transition passes.

  29. GW says:

    If a player makes it to the EPL and to Manchester United no less, chances are pretty good he has faced countless defenders.

    And most of them were probably pretty good. And most of them probably knew/know Valencia is predominantly one-sided.

    And I would say Valencia has probably figured out how to beat most of them,one footed or not.

  30. LC21 says:

    Jozy in 67th min.

  31. GW says:

    He’s just coming of off Achilles injury and Grant has decided to save him for the last two games.

  32. ericJ says:

    Bari score, 2-2 over Roma. But Totti will just dive again and tie it up for Roma I am sure.

  33. Chris says:

    Aresnal won. Nobody mentioned this yet?! Next weeks Chelsea vs. Man U game will be epic.
