West Brom 2-2 Aston Villa| We got Robbed

Aston Villa players

Well it could of been three points which will settle for a point but we can’t deny that the referee and linesman played a big part in not giving us the 3 points. Let’s not feel down in the dumps because this the best we’ve seen Aston Villa for a long time in terms of attacking play and the way we can out play teams on our day, let’s not deny we was facing a quality side in West Brom who have been brilliant so far this season.

Dean Smith made one change coming into this game as Hutton played instead of Elmo from the 3-0 win over Boro. We made a great start as El Ghazi’s shot took a massive deflection of Hegazi to make it 1-0 and it was a great start. Hutton was the fault for the equaliser as he didn’t do enough to stop Barnes and then his cross found Gayle to make it 1-1. At half time we all thought we will take a draw but I feel that we can can grab the 3 points to see us in top 6. Second half started and we came out and again we was causing more problems for West Brom as El Ghazi and Bolasie was creating chances but, Abraham was not as clinical as we hoped considering he was recently voted player of the month.

Grealish did well to lay a pass towards El Ghazi who finds the top corner superbly to make it 2-1 and he’s been fantastic since he came back into the side. Finally a player that is not afraid to take on players and not afraid to shoot and I’m glad we have a buy option in January because he will be worth every penny. But then the referee decided to shape thing up in this game as in the first half we had a clear penalty in which it wasn’t given and to make matters well West Brom made it 2-2 in which Rodriguez used his hand and it was given a goal which was very annoying.

But I’m sick of some fans who decided to put the blame on a fucking goalkeeper and that GK is Nyland who did nothing wrong. It’s what happens when they don’t analysis the game and when we concede a goal they blame the keep to protect the other from criticism. Some players need to get some criticism apart from Nyland as he will get better after this season when he is settled.

Let’s hope Stoke this Saturday will give us to smile about if we get the 3 points and we will be in the play offs by Christmas UTV!!!

Premier League 16/17 predictions #3

Hi guys Milan here and the Premier League is back after the international break and we have some tasty games on the weekend.

Manchester United VS Manchester City

The Manchester derby is here and it’s Mourinho VS Pep and it should be a cracking game. United are looking good so far with 3 wins out of 3 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in amazing form so far. Man City on the other hand are without Aguero after an elbow incident involving him and West Ham defender Winston Reid. He is banned for 3 games and he is crucial to Man City at the moment.

I think Man Utd to win in a thrilling 3-2.

Arsenal VS Southampton

After completing the transfers of Lucas Perez and Mustafi that will give the squad a massive boost after their 3-1 win against Watford, so now this is a must win game to impress the fans. Southampton are struggling without star players like Pelle, Mane etc. They bought Boufal who I think it’s a good player but I think they still have a good squad and can cause problems for Arsenal.

I think Arsenal will win comfortably 3-1.

Bournemouth VS West Brom 

This game is quite unusual as Tony Pulis is hanging by a thread after a disappointing transfer window. I know the reason why would good talented players join a club that plays the most horrible brand of football. Bournemouth I think they still can prove me wrong that they will win be to be honest i don’t even know.

I’m saying West Brom win 2-1.

Burnley VS Hull City

This is a tough game to predict because I don’t even know who will win this game. Burnley had a massive win over Liverpool and that will give them confidence to win on Saturday. Hull City who had 2 win in there first two games, then there confidence went down after they lost 1-0 to Manchester United. They might struggle on Saturday but we will see.

I think Burnley will win 1-0.

Middlesborough VS Crystal Palace

Boro are undefeated so far this season and I really hope they stay up this season because they have good attackers to get the goals to keep them up. Palace at the moment are free falling under Pardew and he is on pressure and I think he will be the first manager to be sacked if his losing run keeps going.

I think Boro will win 2-1.

Stoke City VS Tottenham Hotspur

Stoke have had some hard 3 fixtures so far and I still think they have the talent to keep them in the Premier League. With the signing of Wilfred Bony that will give them a chance to create chances and score goals. Spurs are doing average at the moment but their striker Harry Kane hasn’t scored yet and he is yet to score in August. I think he still has nightmares of his form in the Euros, he needs to forget about that and dominate the league again.

I think Spurs will win 3-0.

West Ham VS Watford

West Ham are looking horrible at the moment after losing to the same team from Romania in the Europa League play offs. Then losing 3-1 to Man City and having loads of injuries to their star players like Payet. Watford are in cruise control like they are not in danger at all but their top scorer from last season Ighalo hasn’t scored yet but I think he will score this season so will Troy Deeney.

I think this game will be a 1-1 draw.

Liverpool VS Leicester City

Over the years this game will a Liverpool win all day but not anymore. This is a game that Liverpool need to win as they lost 2-0 to Burnley and then draw to Spurs 1-1 so now Klopp needs to beat Leicester. But Leicester is a team that never die out but I still think they will not win the league again.

I think this game will be a 2-2 draw.

Swansea City VS Chelsea

Chelsea are looking really strong with 3 wins out of 3 and they are looking very strong under Antonio Conte. Diego Cost is in great form so far and I don’t how he’s not sent off yet. Swansea are struglling at the moment with 1 win so far this season so they need to improve.

I think Chelsea will win 2-0.

Sunderland VS Everton

3 games in for Sunderland and David Moyes is already saying they are in a relegation battle and they are becoming a joke at the moment. Sunderland needs to improve and give Everton a good game. But Everton are looking strong with Lukaku, Bolasie, Barkley and now Enner Valencia on loan,so they have loads of firepower going forward.

I think Everton will win 4-1.

Premier League 16/17 Predictions #2

Hi guys Milan here and my second predictions blog for this season of Premier League, and we have loads of football coming up this weekend.

Tottenham VS Liverpool

This is a big game for both teams as Spurs got a good 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and apparently they will play at Wembley as their stadium that is White Hart Lane is getting refurbished. Liverpool on the other hand got humped by newly promoted Burnley who won 2-0. But they did get confidence when they won 5-0 against Burton Albion in the EFL Cup with the return of Daniel Sturridge.

I think it will be a 2-1 win for Liverpool.

Chelsea VS Burnley

Chelsea looking like the dark horse in the title race with 2 win out of 2 in the league and a good 3-2 win in the EFL Cup. Diego Costa is like Marmite you either love him or hate him because he should of got sent of in both games and also he scored in both games as well. Burnley getting a massive win over Liverpool 2-0 and they might surprise Chelsea but to be honest I don’t think they will.

I think Chelsea will win 3-0.

Crystal Palace VS Bournemouth

Both teams who have lost their opening 2 games of the season and they need to kick of their season otherwise they might be doomed. Pardew is in trouble with the way he sold a few big players and now with Benteke in the team he might help them to get goals and results to stay in the league. Bouremouth who are struggling but they are a decent team when going forward with Wilson, Ibe and Kind but it’s the defence that is a blow.

I think this game will be a 1-1 draw.

Everton VS Stoke City

Everton looking a lot more solid at the back but with Williams out with injury they need to make sure they get a result against Stoke this weekend. Stoke havent got the win they need so far this season and I think they will turn up at Goodision Park, but if it ws at Stoke’s ground I would say Stoke will win. It depends if Bolasie, Lukaku and Barkley can rip Stoke apart.

I think this game will be a 2-2 draw.

Leicester City VS Swansea City

The champions need to step up right now after losing 2-1 to hull and a poor result against Arsenal which ended 0-0. Vardy needs to start scoring and Mahrez needs to improve. I can tell they needed Kante in the midfield and they havent got him. Swansea has had some rocky results lately and I think they will get goals from Baston and Llorente.

I think Leicester will win 2-0.

Southampton VS Sunderland

Memories of this fixture goes back when the saints beat Sunderland 8-0.  Southampton need to get results in as Claude Puel will motivates his team to win this weekend. Sunderland who have no wins so far this season and already David Moyes says it’s a relegation battle for Sunderland this season.

I think Southampton will win 2-1.

Watford VS Arsenal

Watford have had a bad week as they lost to Chelsea and then get knocked out in the EFL Cup by Gillingham who are in League two. Watford need to get something out of this game but it will be hard. Arsenal need to get a positive result today as they lost 4-3 to Liverpool and then a 0-0 draw against Leicester. Wenger needs to answer his critics from the fans and the media. They need to sign players like a striker and a centre back to challenge for the title.

I think Arsenal will win 1-0.

Hull City VS Manchester United

Hull continue their unbelievable start to the season with 2 wins out of 2 and can they keep up and maintain themselves to stay in the Premier League. Manchester United are looking brilliant so far with Ibrahimović in brilliant form and he will terrorize the Hull City defense. Pogba had a great debut but can he maintain his form so far?

I think United will win 3-0.

West Brom VS Middlesbrough

West Brom needs to play good football in order to get results. The win against Palace was a good start but it’s not enough. Boro have been brilliant so far with a win over their rivals Sunderland 2-1 and I think they can surprise West Brom.

I think Boro will win 1-0.

Manchester City VS West Ham United

With the Champions League draw announced, they need to be focused on either challenging for the title or do well in domestic like FA Cup or Champions League. West Ham who are crashed out of the Europa League they won’t have any problems playing on a Thursday so they can challenge for top 5. 

I think this game will be a 2-1 win for Man City.

Premier League 16/17 predictions #1

Hi guys Milan here and I have returned with the Premier League predictions for the first week of the season.

Hull City VS Leicester City

First game of the season will start with the the return of Hull City without Steve Bruce and the reining champions that are Leicester City. Vardy is Leicester’s only hope now as Kante is gone to Chelsea and Mahrez is likely to leave. Hull will struggle this season without Steve Bruce but they still have some decent players in that squad and they might surprise teams. They need to find a good manager that will tell the players to give it there all and keep them in the Premier League.

I think Leicester will win 3-1.

Burnley VS Swansea City

Burnley are back in the Premier League and I hope they stay because they was unlucky to get relegated and with a star player like Andre Gray they can rely on him to get the goals. Swansea lost Andre Ayew who was there top scorer last season which is a massive blow but with a striker like Llorente who knows where the back of the net is. But they are going to lose Ashley Williams to Everton which is massive to Swansea’a first team, but they are getting a new striker as well so they will get goals.

I think this will be a 1-1 draw.

Crystal Palace VS West Bromich Albion

Losing FA Cup finalist have been busy in the transfer window with some new players. Pardew has to make sure they don’t lose Bolasie to Everton because he is important to this Crystal Palace team. West Brom has to make sure he keeps Berahino at the club and also they need to play a different style of football instead of parking the bus and make things difficult for the opponent.

I think Palace will win comfortably 2-0.

Everton VS Tottenham Hotspur

Ronald Koeman is Everton’s new manager and they have already lost Stones but they are in for Williams which is a good signing for them. Everton will do well this season I think if they keep Lukaku then they will do well this season. Spurs on the other hand finished 3rd last season but for Kane and Alli having bad tournament for England I don’t know if they will return to good form.

I think Spurs will win 2-1 away to Everton.

Middlesbrough VS Stoke City

Boro are back in the Premier League and I’m happy to see a team return to the top flight of English football. They have made some good signings and I think they will survive in the Premier League. Last season this was the best Stoke City team I’ve seen in a long time under Mark Hughes. I think Stoke will finish higher then last season if they have some consistent form in games.

I think this will be a 2-1 win for Stoke City. 

Southampton VS Watford

Without Koeman, Pelle, Mane and Wanyama I think Southampton might struggle. But I think they still have a good team and they can get results. Watford  on the other hand have a new manager and they might surprise teams again like they did with Ighalo and Deeney. I think Watford will have a relegation battle this season but I might be proven wrong.

I think it will it will be a 2-0 win for Southampton.

Manchester City VS Sunderland

Man City have ended their Pellegrini era and I think with Pep in charge Man City will play more quality football. Aguero will score goals to try carrying the team to the title again and the new signings will do well in this Premier League season. Sunderland is without Big Sam as he is now England manager, now they have David Moyes now and I think they might play good football under him.

I think Man City will win 4-0.

AFC Bournemouth VS Manchester United

Jose Mourinho will kick off his Premier League season at Manchester United and they have spend a lot of money on players. Ibrahimovic is in good form after scoring the winner against Leicester City in the FA Community Shield. Pogba returns to Man United (I’ve done a blog about that so check that out) and other players who are willing to win the title. Bournemouth is in their second season of the Premier League and I think they will struggle but we will see what happens.

I think Man United will win 3-0.

Arsenal VS Liverpool

This is a big game for both clubs and also bad news as well because both teams want to get off to a winning start. Arsenal needs to find a top class striker either partner Giroud or replace him. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team is in really good form as they smash Barcelona 4-0 which is unbelievable but then lost 4-0 to 04 Mainz which is embarrassing. 

I think this game will be a 2-2 draw but I think Liverpool will snatch a late winner.

Chelsea VS West Ham United

Chelsea kick off their Antonio Conte era with a home game to West Ham. Kante will hopefully start because he’s a premier league winner and Michy Batshuayi in my opinion he will do well and could partner Diego Costa or just have one striker up front. West Ham will have to wait till they play there home game at the Olympic Stadium. Payet will be the star player hopefully and they might challenge for top 4.

I think Chelsea will win 2-1 against West Ham.

The Recap of Football #1

Hi guys Milan here and this a new thing called The Recap of Football where I will be talking about some games on the weekend that would be interesting to talk about.

Aston Villa 2 – 4 Southampton

First let’s talk about the bad vibes that is my team Aston Villa who lost 4-2 at home to Southampton. This game was weird for me because I’m not going to blame everyone because these attackers were okay in this game but the defense was poor as ever with Lescott and Bacuna being terrible in that game and I think they need to go along with Hutton and Richardson. In my opinion next season we need to build a defense around this one center back that is Ciaran Clark who is a future captain for Aston Villa.

Dusan Tadic scored two and Shane Long scored the most easiest goal I’ve seen with Lescott leaving him in so much space. Ashley Westwood scored two good goals and I think we should keep him in next season. We always have kids playing like Grealish but this kid comes on as a sub called Kevin Toner who got an assist for Westwood second goal and he was decent in the second half.

Leicester City 4 – 0 Swansea

This game has just shown us that without Vardy Leicester can still be as a team together as they won 4-0 at home with Mahrez who was voted PFA Player of the Year which is fully deserved and he is the first African player to win it, so players like Okocha, Drogba even Yaya Toure didn’t win it but Mahrez did which is amazing for football. Ulloa scored two in that game and Albrighton the former Villa player scored.

All they need to do is beat Manchester United and they are crowned the 2015/16 Premier League champions for the first time. It will be amazing for football to see a team who was about to get relegated last season but they survived, and to see them 7 points clear from Spurs and loads of points clear from Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 1 West Brom

All I have to say from this game is that Spurs looks like they have ruined their chance to catch Leicester for now and West Brom did Leicester a favor so when they go to Old Trafford they have the chance to win the league if they beat Man United. Worse for Spurs is that they will miss Dele Ali for three games because he was banned for punching West Brom player Yacob in the stomach.

For the first time I was like happy that West Brom drew to spurs normally when West Brom scored then I get annoyed. It felt wrong as a Villa fan to cheer for West Brom to score but they did the job and to be honest we all want Leicester to win the league instead of Spurs. Speaking of Spurs it was a typical Spurs game when they was on a good form they always seem to bottle it in the last few minutes like Arsenal.

Everton 1 – 2 Manchester United (FA Cup)

Now we are talking about the FA Cup Semi finals that happened this weekend and this game is crucial for both managers. It started well with former Everton player Fellani made it 1-0. Everton had a penalty in which Lukaku stepped up but David De Gea saved it but the Deulofeu crossed the ball in and it hit Smalling and it went in his own net.

Then in the last minute of the Anthony Martial in my opinion the new Thierry Henry or the new Louis Zaha stepped up and produced a goal that made every Man United fan think that they are going get a trophy. Now it’s pressure for the Everton boss as if he drew or loss to Bournemouth then it might be the end of Roberto Martinez.

Crystal Palace 2 – 1 Watford (FA Cup)

Now Man United will have to face Crystal Palace as they went to beat Watford at Wembley. Bolasie made it 1-0 in the first 6 minutes and then Troy Deeney their captain made it 1-1 to give Watford a chance to get the winner. Connor Wickham scored a brilliant header to make it 2-1 to Palace and Alan Pardew has took the club into the FA Cup final.

They will face Man United and this is crucial for Van Gaal because if they lose that final then it may be the end of Louis Van Gaal. It will be a repeat of the 1990 FA Cup final where the first leg was 3-3 and then the second leg Man United won that final.

I hope you enjoy this kind of different blog about football and follow my blog for more football madness.

West Brom VS Aston Villa preview

Hi guys Milan here and this is the preview of my team Aston Villa will face one of our biggest rivals West Brom.

West Bromwich Albion VS Aston Villa

All I’m doing is praying at the moment and I’m praying that we beat West Brom because they beat by a scrappy goal from Berahino and they park the bus which is a stupid way of getting 3 points.

We’ve got our form back with us beating Crystal Palace 1-0 (If you haven’t seen the blog I posted about that match then check my blog website to see that blog) and then we drew against Leicester who was lucky with their penalty and they were lucky to get away from a penalty when Huth elbowed Kozak in the face.

Then we beat Wycombe Wanderers in the replay 2-0 which is a good result for us, so we have the confidence to go to the ugly Hawthorns and give West Brom a good game. Tony Pulis I respect the guy but his tactics is not the most beautiful as they love to park the bus against premier league teams, they even did that against Bristol City in the replay.

On paper we have the better team when we have Sinclair who was brilliant against Wycombe and Ayew is still showing his class with his skill and his agility. We need wingers who can get the crosses to the strikers Gestede and Kozak (Hopefully he doesn’t play). Traore is injured which is a huge blow as he’s quick and strong and such a young talent.

I think It’s going to be a feisty game but Villa will win 2-1 or 3-1 and we will be so happy.

Hope you enjoy this blog and make sure you follow this blog for more football madness.
