November + Man Utd vs Accrington Stanley


League Table:

Manchester United vs Accrington Stanley - Live on BBC 1

Commentators: Robert McLaren (Rablador)
Louis Otrowski (Louis. O)
Mike Hunt (Glenn T)

RM: We are here today with the F.A. Cup tie of the round, European super giants Manchester United against recently promoted Accrington Stanley. Here are the line-ups for the game today:

RM: Man Utd have put a very strong team out today with their main threat being Right-winger Willian. For Accrington JJ Lister's strongest player is undoubtedly Mattia Destro from Serie A side Genoa for a bargain free transfer, although he spent all last season on loan at AS Roma. We now head over to our commentators for the game today, Louis Otrowski and Mike Hunt.

MH: Hahaha, Willian?! You must be f**king joking?!

LO: Mike... We're on air...

MH: Oh, shit. Anyway, hello and welcome to Old Trafford a.k.a the Theatre of Dreams. I am Mike Hunt and beside me is Louis Otrowski, how are you feeling about this game today, Louis?

LO: Manchester United will win, definitely.

MH: Well, you're a sociable bastard aren't you?

LO: ... Anyway, the referee has blown the whistle and the game is under way!

MH: Hehehe blown the whistle hehehe

12 mins: LO: Accrington have a free-kick in a dangerous area, Tom Cairney will take it. He looks as if he's going to whip it in... He has... Le Toux!!! No, Bocchetti gets a nick on it and it's in!!! Accrington lead through a Salvatore Bocchetti own goal! 1-0 to the nPower League 1 side!

MH: Lucky bastards...

24 mins LO: Bocchetti tackles... It's gone to Welbeck, Welbeck finds Pereira in the middle... Pereira gives it to Henriquez... Henriquez one on one with fon Williams!!! What a miss! You don't get many chances like that!


26 mins LO: Tom Cairney in the exact position as where he crossed it in to get the first goal, he has the free-kick... Broad misses it! LE TOUX!!!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!! Bocchetti missed the tackle completely!!! 2-0 Accrington Stanley!

MH: Well, this is just embarassing. Bocchetti, you're shit!

43 mins LO: fon Williams gives it short to Kisnorbo, Kisnorbo gives it straight to an advancing Phil Jones, here's Willian, gets to the byline... Whips a ball in... HENRIQUEZ!!! HE'S MISSED AGAIN!

MH: Fergie... Get van Persie on please...

HT: 2-0 to Accrington

RM: So the League 1 side go in 2-0 ahead against the Premier League leaders in the Quarter Final of the Capital One Cup. What a poor performance from Henriquez! He's missed two sitters so far! Anyway back to you Mike.

MH: HANG ON! I'm in the middle of my sandwich here!

54 mins LO: fon Williams plays the free-kick to Dudka. Finds Radosavljcvic in the middle Kisnorbo, Cairney, Casarini finds Le Toux... This looks promising... Destro... Foriestieri 1 on 1! WIDE!

MH: Jesus, I thought it was just Man United that missed sitters?

69 mins LO: Here's Dudka, van Persie fouls him, free kick and a yellow for the Dutchman. Dudka and Cairney play a 1/2, Casarini finds Le Toux. Tackled by Jones, Pereira plays it short to Kagawa, back to Pereira, Vidic, Pereira. Wonderful ball over the top to Pereira by Kagawa! Pereira at the byline...


LO: GOAAAAAAAL Man Utd back in it! Goal from Henriquez!

90+2 mins LO: Cummings with the throw...

MH: Hehehe... Cummings...


MH: Gotta say they deserved it, Fergie'll be going mad!

LO: That's all from us today, thank you.

MH: Bye you wenkers!

(Attendance: 64,427)
Mike Hunt seems like a pleasant guy! ;)
I think Emma has a rival for commentator of the year! Incredible win by the way :D
Glenn's getting sacked in the morning, sacked in the mooooooooorning, Oh Glenn Tham, you are getting sacked! :D
Some great results there mate looks like this team is already capable of battling with the Premier League big boys!

December/January Update

What a great two months! A 2-1 win against Man Utd and then a 7-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur while I accidentally went on holiday (My assistant is the best :D) and we find ourselves in a very very good 3rd place with 2 games in hand against 2nd placed Leeds.

It was a much less busier transfer window, signing 3 new players, Charlie Mulgrew from Celtic, Michael Collins from Bohemians and Armend Dallku from Vorskla

*Sorry for the short update*
Wow your doing very well. Well Done :D
Whoa, smashed Spurs. Well done, enjoying this so far.

Manchester City VS Accrington Stanley - Live on BBC 1

BBC Man: And now we join Mike Hunt, Jamie Tillsbury and Alex Heardman at Wembley for the Capital One Cup.

MH: Hello there and welcome to the first English cup final, it's Premier League leaders Manchester City against League 1 promotion candidates Accrington Stanley, I'm here with Jamie Tillsbury and Alex Heardman, say hello lads.

JT & AH: Heeeeeeeeeey

MH: So Manchester City are 1-6 favourites today but are without Carlos Tevez who is suspended and Yaya Touré and David Silva who are out with injuries. But arguably Accrington's best Center-back Dedryck Boyata is ineligible as he is loaned to Accrington from Manchester City. What are your thoughts gentlemen?

JT: Well I think the biggest miss today is Boyata as he has been the rock of Stanley's back four this season.

AH: Hi mum! I'm on telly!

MH: Okay... Now lets take a look at the line-ups for today's match:

AH: Apparently a big businessman is looking to buy Accrington as well, £540M apparently!

MH: Alex, that has nothing to do with the line-ups but if you haven't heard Accrington are subject to a take-over bid from billionaire Ian Davies. Anyway, here is Accrington Stanley manager JJ Lister walking onto the famous Wembley turf. He's been a great inspiration hasn't he Jamie?

JT: He has, he started from nowhere and somehow got Accrington promoted as champions and it looks as if he is getting back-to-back promotions as they are currently 2nd in League 1.

MH: Thank you Jamie, but it's time to head over to our commentary team, Joshua Bean and Louis Otrowski.

JB: Thank you Mike, the game has just kicked off, with Accrington first to take it, Xisco has played it to Le Toux and we're off!

Pass intercepted by Gordon, gives it to Xisco, Mattia Destro now, good tackle from Kolarov and Kompany gives it back to Gomes.

6 mins JB: Here's Tom Cairney with a free-kick near the half-way line... He looks as if he's going to cross it in... He has... IT'S LE TOUX!!!!! GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!!!!! LE TOUX PUTS ACCRINGTON STANLEY AHEAD AT WEMBLEY AGAINST MANCHESTER CITY!!!! IT'S THE STUFF OF DREAMS FOR ACCRINGTON FANS!!!!
