Two big games in this weekends EPL fixtures. The Arsenal at Liverpool and Everton at Spurs

Liverpool looks good for top 4 status but they can't afford to lose at Anfield. Arsenal on the other hand could make a huge jump by getting 3. It seems like eons ago that Arsene Wagner was getting the load of criticism after the first game disaster.

Everton and Tottenham looks to be a big one. Both teams are in striking distance of a top 4 spot. But the Toffees don't have Lukaku, he's scheduled to return in March.

Other games of note, the spiraling David Moyes led Man U host Fulham at Old Trafford. Fulham is trying desperately to avoid relegation and Man U is just trying to right the ship. They are an uncharacteristic 7th in the table. Fulham is hoping for Clint Dempsey to return to form quickly or they will in the Championship League come 2015. So is Jurgen Klinsman.

Agree. With Tottenham and ManU's problems this year they (Merseyside clubs) will never get a better shot at qualifying for CL.

Everton need Mirallas and Barkley to step up their games, and giant-sized loanee Traore to bed in immediately. The Ivory Coast version of Peter Crouch.

Ive never liked the EPL. Just a bunch of pampered, overpaid, diving, cheating bastards. Fairly confident a few refs are on their payrolls too..... Especially Chelski. A penalty against those fkrs, the ref disappears and ibramovich knows feck all aboot it! My son follows the Gooners though, so i always look out for Their results....., and Arsehole Vinegar aint a bad bloke for a frenchman.

I'll stick to the immensely shyte, BUT hard as nails SPL.

'MON THE HIBEES.

But it's been getting progressively worse over the past 10-15 years. 20 years ago you could tackle in this sport. It's a feckin non contact sport now, and even when there is NO contact, the foreigners in the EPL are on the floor, rolling around like they've been fkn struck by lightening.

Today, Panoptes, you are very correct. Was at Easter Road today to witness Hibs go out of the Scortish Cup to lowly Raith Rovers. They were indeed, little girls chasing a ball around a field today. SOOO FKN Annoying. Useless bstds.

Sadly, no hattrick of cup final apperances this year, LFIJ. Probably a good thing. Spare us another embarrassing day out in May.

ahhhhhh, grasshopper, you do not see the whole picture.

What you really see is little girls (and there are little boy leagues) that are not sitting in front of their XBox or TV and on a sport field gaining cardio workouts and eye/foot/hand co-ordination.

It is by far the cheapest team sport to be a member of because equipment is minimal.

It is by far the most strenuous sport to be a member of because if coached correctly, they will be constantly moving.

Scoring goals is only the icing on the cake. Participation is the meat and potatoes.

Fulham trying to get a big win at Old Trafford. Everyone is lining up to get a shot at Man U this year.

I'll still be shocked if Moyes is emptied. He needs a couple of seasons to get his shit together, just like Sir Eck.

nice thoughts and all but soccer sucks so bad to this non fan that id rather put her on a treadmill for exercise. At least it will keep us all away from the weird ass soccer family freaks.

Sir eck took over a team that hadn't won a league title in 20 years, Moyes is taking over a team where they are expected to challenge/win the league every year and qualifying for the CL is considered automatic.

That header at the death by Bent was sweet considering that ManU has been doing that kind of thing to teams for years.

Manchester United's expectations were no different in 1986 to what they are now. regardless of the fact that they'd won feck all for years. The pressure on Sir Eck back in 86 was every bit as intense as what Moyes will be facing now. Moyes is a very good manager. Everton (arguably) played the best soccer in England for years under Moyes reign. Given time, Moyes could be legendary for Manure. I'll be very surprised if he's sacked.
