Arsenal, Man U Good, Liverpool Okay , Tottenham BAD!

Posted: October 25, 2007 in Barclays Premier League, La Liga, MLS, Serie A, Soccer, UEFA CL

These 4 teams made the top 6 in the Barclays Premier League, with Liverpool, Man U, Arsenal making it at least to the round of 16 in the Champions League, while Tottenham went to the quarterfinals in the UEFA Cup. That was last year, things have changed for these guys in 2007.
Arsenal: I don’t know about you, but winning your last UEFA CL game 7-0 over Slavia Prague, is quite impressive. Also, it’s very good when you don’t lose a single Premier League game, and are at the top of the table. All of this, without Thierry Henry.

Manchester United: Slow start to the season, all of their wins were either 1-0 or 2-0. Now they can’t stop scoring goals with Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney healthy. They are 2nd in the Premier League, 2 points behind Arsenal, and have a 3-0-0 record in the Champions League, including a 4-2 thrashing of Dynamo Kiev.

So you’ve heard about the good, but what about the other two teams? Read more after the jump.

Liverpool: I don’t know where to start with them. They had a great start to the Premier League season, but  they went from 1st to 4th, and coming off a 2-1 over Everton in a controversial Merseyside Derby, in which they were lucky that penalty wasn’t called late in the game to make it 2-2. The scoring for the Reds has dropped after a 6-0 thrashing over Derby County. In their last 9 competitive games,  they’ve scored 10 goals, with 4 coming against Reading in the Carling Cup (Reading was the same team that let Portsmouth score 7). Liverpool are now winless in the UEFA CL (0 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses), including a 2-1 loss to minnows Besiktas. With Arsenal next in the Premier League, things could turn ugly.

Tottenham: We could very well be talking about Spurs in the Championship. They are 3rd from bottom in the Premiership, and now have lost 2-1 in the UEFA Cup to Spanish club Getafe. They are winless in 7 Premiership games, and after long talks about manager Martin Jol’s job, he has been sacked. Awful if you’re a fan of Tottenham, and now they are in a sinking ship.

 That’s all for now, and starting next week, we’ll have new pages for La Liga, Serie A,  and Premier League standings, MLS playoff scores.
