Live - Sunday's football

comment on the article

It's a live text with a difference today - because from the top of the Premier League (OK, second right now) we're going right to the very bottom of the Football League.

The Johnstone's Paint Trophy final starts us off, with Luton Town - who will be playing in the Blue Square Premier next season - taking on Scunthorpe, who are sixth in League One.

Later, sixth placed Everton host seventh placed Wigan in the Premier League, before Manchester United entertain Aston Villa knowing a win would take them back to the top of the division.

Plenty to fill your Sunday boots on, then.

The difference between ManUtd and Liverpool is that Liverpool are not affected when they go a goal down and fight until the end.

Somewhere along the way United lost that touch and that fight.

It would appear that not just referees are afraid of the wrath of Ferguson. My post has been removed for intimating that he uses both off field and on field tactics to win games. I am concerned (if not terribly surprised) that the BBC will not publish any comments against Ferguson as it would appear that they too fear retribution. It seems that the BBC are quite prepared to let Ferguson call the shots (when was the last time we saw AF give an after match interview on MOTD?). What a shame.

Maybe what you are saying is a figment of your twisted imagination and is slanderous as well as libelous(WTH)and the BBC is trying to protect you from a potential law-suit.

Not really that hard is it?

More likely due to the fact that a public broadcaster cannot allow unsubstantiated comments.

We were all hearing that after the international break Man U would have regrouped etc.

What a load of tripe, their performance for much of the match was average.

Credit them for going till the end, as they always have done.

Villa made me laugh with their small club tactics of hanging onto a one nil lead when in fact, they could have pushed for another goal.

Rafa > O'Neill, thats a fact.

Its still far from over, as we've seen, Man U aren't playing well and there isn't a quick fix to that. Especially amidst the Rooney v Fergie bust up.

Playing v Sunderland away at the weekend will be a test, it really will. Do Sunderland want to lose and see their biggest rivals Newcastle go above them? Doubt it!

Draw at the weekend, and a loss to Porto tonight. 2-0. Ladbrokes giving 50/1.

Matthew,

I believe that calling somebody twisted could quite easily be termed libelous or defamation of character. I commend you, however, on your support for the actions of your manager even though this support may be somewhat misguided. Kindest regards,

Jez.
