Fzem I will try



Manchester United overcame a first leg defeat to beat Barcelona 4-1 on aggregate after an entertaining second leg at Old Trafford. Barcelona came into the match with a bit of complacency, and we have learn't with Brendan Rodgers Man Utd side that they thrive on being the underdogs. We were incredible today and Bracelona did not really know what hit them. It is something we were working on at the training ground, especially set pieces. We executed them perfectly too.


Chiriches scored for United against Barcelona in there 4-1 aggregate win

Things did not get off to a good start for Barcelona as Romanian captain Vlad Chiriches, in for the suspended Matthias Ginter seized on an error by Jordi Ortega to score a close range finish which was timed impeccably. The goal was another set piece for United and Vlad looked thrilled.

Striker Jordan Rhodes doubled Manchester United's lead with a good header from just inside the six-yard box on the 68th minute with a brilliantly worked goal from around 12 yards out. it was brilliant play by Cleverley and Mirallas. Cleverley was fantastic all match and then at 2-0 he set up the last two goals.


Cleverley was stunning against Barcelona

It was Cleverley who supplied the cross for Stones to head in from a free kick to make it 3-0 and put the match beyond doubt in the 73rd minute. Tom Cleverley has defied a lot of critics this season and this season and under Rodgers he is now a international regular in the England squad. It was Kevin Mirallas that supplied the corner for Stones to finish Sorry Madrid off on the 81st minute with another header and United had completed an outstanding victory and the man of the match was John Stones who was supreme for Manchester United and the central defender's two goals marked a simply outstanding contribution. Stones added to the scoreline with a fine header from point-blank range and was able to net a second too on the 81st minute. The central defender's dominance in the air was a major factor towards this very good performance.

Stones has been in good form for Manchester United so far this season, also aiding his team's cause with five goals.
'Cleverley was stunning against Barcelona' - those words I never though I'd read :P
Nice win btw, it'll be interesting to see who you get in the quarter finals

F.A Cup Semi Final Draw


The draw for a F.A Cup Semi Final was made today and with four teams in the hat it was most interesting so lets review who will be playing at Wembley on ITV.



First up is the only Championship side left int he competition Watford against Newcastle United. Watford who are in the process of losing there manager to Aston Villa got here by beating Wolves on Penalties in a replay. There talisman Troy Deeney is the guy they have to look to for the goals but there has never been a better time to take on a team like Newcastle.

They are in awful form and currently are surviving in the Premier League by the skin of there teeth, however there best form has come in the Cup this season and have relied of Papiss Cisse to get the goals when needed this term. We interviewed both managers after the draw.

I am very happy with how far I have took Watford and no matter who is in charge come match day I will be cheering them on because they are such a good side and deserve to go into the Premier League. Aslong as Troy and Wilfried is fit we will give them a good games said manager Guiseppe Sannino.


Sannino speaks out about the draw, hinting he will not be around for the match

We are in the Semi Final and avoided the two big teams but this is a going to be an amazing chance to get to the final of the biggest cup in the world and I will be the man to lead Newcastle out at Wembley, hopefully against my old club said David Moyes.

This is going to be an interesting match because Watford have shown a lot of steel this season but we still think that Newcastle have the upper hand.

Prediction: 3-1 Newcastle



The match of the round now for the second Semi Final and it is the Liverpool against Manchester United match-up and Rodgers against his old club, with a possible treble up for grabs with his current club.

Guus Hiddink has got this club moving lately in Liverpool, they are the team behind United who are in the best form. Suarez and Gerrard have been scoring for fun this term, they just keep chipping away and annoying opposition into submitting. For there fans, this will be a huge match with not many liking Rodgers for him leaving to go to there rivals and Hiddink revealed it is all to play for.


Suarez and Gerrard are key for Liverpool, if they are to defeat in form United

This is possibly the closest match in Europe at the moment in terms of form. We have world class players and United have players who are becoming world class. In a way Naismith not being called up to the Scottish squad is a blessing for United and a pain in the backside for Liverpool because this lad is flying at the moment but we will do everything we can to defeat them said Hiddink after the draw.

United, I am sure would have loved Watford or Newcastle but they have not got them and Brendan Rodgers expects a vibrant atmosphere in a match that could go any way.

I think we are going to have a close, tight, cagey match up if I am being honest. We have top class players, they have top class players and I hope we get given a top class referee like Howard Webb or Mike Dean. Aslong as Andre Marriner is kept away I will be happy.

This match is going to be so tight it is hard to call so this is the prediction.

Prediction: Penalty win for Man Utd after a 1-1 draw
