Football in the Guinness Book

There are a lot of records in all sports, some more impressive than others, but they are just as important. Let us look at some of the records registered in football, records which are noted in the Guinness Book. First of all, you might find it interesting that Arsenal suffered no defeats in forty-nine matches which they played between the 7th of May 2003 and the 16th of October 2004, this being the first team which succeeded in achieving this performance.

Premier League Match Time: Liverpool Vs Blackburn

Liverpool need a win badly and they will considering Blackburn’s visit to Anfield this Sunday as affording the perfect opportunity. Blackburn’s poor record at Anfield is a factor in Liverpool’s favour. The Rovers last won in 1993 at the ground; of the fourteen matches played since then, nine have been won by the Merseysiders, with the remaining five drawn.

Wayne Rooney: Present Perfect, Future Tense

Wayne Rooney has informed Sir Alex Ferguson that he does not wish to stay on at Manchester United. Rooney is said to have had differences of opinion with the team manager, recently. Rooney’s decision to leave the club could have an adverse effect on the performance of the club in the ongoing Premiership season.

Ronnie Whelan – Liverpool FC Legend

Ronnie Whelan was one of Liverpool’s greatest players during the 1980′s. He signed as a teenager form the League of Ireland and went onto make over 400 appearances for the club winning six League titles, three League cups, two FA Cups and the European Cup.

Premier League Match Time: Stoke Vs Manchester United

Stoke had a poor start losing three games on the trot and atoned by winning three of their next four, thereafter. The Potters have thrived thanks to all round strength in all departments: defence ( Huth and Collins), midfield (Pennant and Etherington) and attack (Jones, Delap and Walters). United have beaten Stoke every time the sides have met in the league, in the two years the Potters have spent in the top flight.

Premier League Match Time: Sunderland Vs Aston Villa

Sunderland have drawn five matches in a row, with the goalless match against Blackburn on Monday being the latest. On the positive side, the Black Cats have staved off defeat for six matches in a row, their best performance since doing it for 17 successive games in 2006-07. Contrastingly, Villa have played in only two goalless draws in their last 20 matches, including the one against Chelsea in match-week eight, the Midlands outfit are formidable rivals having finished sixth in three consecutive seasons.

Premier League Match Time: West Ham Vs Newcastle

The Hammers had a horrendous start to the premiership, with four losses on the trot. That said, West Ham’s last loss came five matches ago, and they will look to extend that unbeaten streak against the Magpies, who have in contrast just garnered the solitary point from their last three games. Unlike West Ham, Newcastle began the league season well getting a brilliant win against Villa in only their second match. But thereafter their campaign has fallen apart. Head to head however, Newcastle have a 44-37 advantage over Avram Grant’s men, though on current form, they would be hard pressed to preserve that record. In Andy Carroll, the Magpies have one of the top scorers of the season, and they will look him to provide the impetus.

Premier League Match Time: Wigan Vs Bolton

The DW Stadium will be the venue of a local derby between Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers due for a Saturday afternoon kick off in match-week nine of the Premiership. The Latics will seek to extend their unbeaten match streak to four, while if Wanderers stay unbeaten in Saturday’s game, it will be their fifth in a row. Bolton will be especially enthused coming as they are off a 2-1 win against Stoke City.

Premier League Match Time: West Brom Vs Fulham

West Brom are riding high after a creditable 2-2 draw against Manchester United in match-week eight. Especially as this was a come-from-behind effort. Additionally, it came after an away win at Emirates against the Gunners, giving the Baggies two reasons to feel optimistic ahead of their home encounter with the Cottagers. Fulham will try to put an end to the Baggies’ celebrations after their bravura performance against the Red Devils. That will atone for the Cottagers’ own loss to Tottenham in match-week eight.

Premier League Match Time: Birmingham Vs Blackpool

Blackpool have had a decent record in recent times against Birmingham, and in their last seven matches have four wins and a draw. The most recent, a championship game at St Andrew’s, went to the Seasiders by a narrow margin of 1-0. Most importantly, Blackpool have won both games played between the sides in the last 10 years.

Premier League Match Time: Manchester City Vs Arsenal

Manchester City host Arsenal at Eastlands this Sunday in what must surely be billed the super match of match-week nine of the Premier League season. Both teams are expected to challenge for the title in a year when both Chelsea and Manchester United rely on older players who might find the going tougher as the season wears on.
