3/23/2008 English Premier League Live - Manchester United vs Liverpool

Get ready for this live TV and radio broadcast commentary of Manchester United and Liverpool in the English Premier League as the two rivals are ready to do battle in the cauldron of Old Trafford in a bid to gain supremacy in the English game. Manchester United has traditionally been one of the strongest teams in English soccer and have conquered the domestic league largely over the past two decades or so. Now they hope to even surpass Liverpool in the decisive reign as to which club is the most successful in the English game. While the Reds have an unparalleled number of European titles to their name, their total of 18 league titles is in danger of being eclipsed by their rivals from Manchester, who have been winning titles ever so often in the 20 years since Liverpool dominated before.

As we approach this live TV and radio broadcast commentary match between Manchester United and Liverpool in the English Premier League, the questions remain as to whether the great and gifted footballers like Ronaldo of Manchester United and Fernando Torres of Liverpool should receive special protection from referees. While there is no doubt that they bring something special to the game, if there is special preferences given to certain players the danger will always lie in the fact that these players might take advantage of it and put other players' careers at risk. Such as Ronaldo's constant diving when hardly touched, or Torres tripping over his own feet at full speed when he imagined that some defender had tackled him. There will be a fine line between honesty and deceit. Soccer is a man's game, and these players should learn to toughen up and also realise that accidents do happen and can sometimes be unavoidable. The best way is to become stronger and adopt more tricks and skills to avoid tackles. Ferguson and Benitez have already started to lock horns before this live TV and radio broadcast commentary match between Manchester United and Liverpool and it will be interesting to see how the game unfolds amidst all the controversy over player protection.

3/17/2008 English Premier League Live TV - Birmingham City vs Newcastle United

Get ready for this live TV and radio broadcast commentary of Birmingham City and Newcastle United in the English Premier League as both clubs clash to determine who will be a better candidate for relegation and who deserves to stay more in the league. Birmingham City have been in better form over the past few matches compared to Newcastle United who have endured an awful season under ex manager Sam Allardyce and now Kevin Keegan, who has presided over a tumultous winless streak that sees the club nowhere near a change in fortunes and sinking deeper into crisis and relegation trouble. Alex McLeish manager of Birmingham City will be the one looking forward to this game more with his team looking more solid and primed for relegation battle while Newcastle have looked increasingly shoddy and never sure of themselves in any way.

Who will win this live TV and radio broadcast commentary match between Birmingham City and Newcastle in the English Premier League today? While the football romantics would prefer that Newcastle under Kevin Keegan can rise to the occasion and finally win their first game under the charismatic soccer legend, the fact of the matter is that Newcastle do not look like a soccer team that are capable of even scoring or not conceding a goal in any match, and faced with a daunting trip to St Andrews against a tough tackling Birmingham City side, they are in danger of a hiding that might bury their confidence totally and spell doom for the rest of the season. The key here is if Newcastle can get anything out of this live TV and radio broadcast commentary match against Birmingham City. If so, they have a hope, if not, they are favourites to go down.

3/12/2008 UEFA Cup Live Radio - Hamburg vs Bayer Leverkusen

If Spanish clubs dominated last season's competition, the German clubs have had the greatest number of representatives in this season's edition as evidenced by this all German second leg live radio broadcast commentary UEFA Cup meeting between Bundesliga sides Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen. Bayer will be bringing a slender 1-0 lead to Hamburg after a late winner in the first leg at the massive BayArena stadium in Germany. With Hamburg having had the better results from the two sides' meetings in their own league this season, the home side will be confident of overturning the one goal deficit and advance to the next round at Bayer's expense. Hamburg actually had the better of the game in terms of possession and they created just as many clear opportunities as the home side, but as it is with most of these cup games, anything can happen in football and Hamburg paid for not taking their chances.

Bayer might have its hands full in dealing with Hamburg for this live radio broadcast commentary second leg match against Hamburg in the UEFA Cup as they have decidedly had the worse results against their German rivals this season. The one goal lead might also be insufficient although by not conceding a home goal, they can put Hamburg under pressure if they manage to snatch an away goal themselves. This might be possible considering that Hamburg will miss the company of defensive rock Vincent Kompany after getting himself booked in the first leg and will have to sit out the return match for accumulating too many yellow cards. Kompany was instrumental in leading the Hamburg defence on a stout display of defiance in the first half against Leverkusen and with him missing, it remains to be seen if Hamburg would be able to contain Bayer and score a decisive victory, leading them to a quarterfinal appearance in the UEFA Cup.

3/12/2008 UEFA Cup Live Radio - Bayern Munich vs Anderlecht

Anderlecht will be looking to salvage some pride in this live radio broadcast commentary of their second leg UEFA Cup meeting against Bayern Munich, after suffering a humiliating 5-0 thumping at the hands of the German champions last week. The tie was all but over by half-time as Italian Luca Toni scored Bayern's second of the game and Anderlecht saw Marcin Wasilewski sent off on the stroke of half time for two offences that resulted in yellow cards and a subsequent red. It had seemed that Altintop's stunning first goal had rocked the Belgian side's confidence and when Wasilewski was sent off for a dubious second yellow, they cracked under pressure and had no answer to Bayern's greater attacking prowess in the second half. Toni then squeezed a cross shot into the net at Anderlecht keeper Daniel Zitka's near post and that signalled the beginning of the end.

Franck Ribery was instrumental in Bayern Munich's rout of Anderlecht in the first leg and he will look to continue his good form in this live radio broadcast commentary of their match against Anderlecht in the UEFA Cup. Ribery scored a fine free kick for Bayern's fifth goal in that first meeting and given the extra space against ten men, he ran riot and could have scored and created more had Bayern Munich's strikers put the chances away. This will be Bayern's home match and with Anderlecht providing no more than a limp reply, they would be ill advised to give the French winger the space and time to once again cause problems for their defence. Luca Toni will be looking to add more goals to his season's tally as he strives to attract the attention of Italian national coach Donadoni for a place in the Italian national squad for Euro 2008. Against mediocre opposition in Anderlecht, his wishes might just be answered.

Enjoy these live TV match highlights of Anderlecht vs Bayern Munich.

3/12/2008 UEFA Cup Live Radio - Zenit St Petersburg vs Marseille

With a thrilling 3-1 home win and advantage to carry into the second leg of this tie, Marseille will be confident of handling this tricky away tie in deep cold Russia against a Zenit St Petersburg side still to start its season in its league at home in this featured live radio commentary UEFA Cup tie. Ex-Liverpool player Djibril Cisse was highly instrumental in the first leg, inspiring his team as the captain of the night and also by scoring two crucial goals which put Marseille firmly in command and in high spirits for the return leg. On the night, Marseille also dominated the game with Zenit still not in full motion in the midst of their pre-season preparations. The French side had an overwhelming 18 shots on goal as compared to Zenit's measly five shots, and if not for a combination of the goalkeeper and wasteful finishing, would have been in a better position for the second leg.

Zenit does however carry a crucial away goal into this live radio commentary second leg UEFA Cup tie against Marseille and the home advantage might weigh in their favour, as well as the cold conditions that away teams have to deal with when playing in Russia at this time of the year. French sides are not known for coping well with such weather conditions so it remains to be seen if Marseille would be able to sustain its momentum for this game. Zenit will attempt to put Marseille under early pressure and if they are able to secure an early goal, it might push the game open, considering that two goal leads in cup ties are not the most guaranteed of margins. Marseille will need all the experience and cunning of its seasoned professionals to carry the club through and avoid an upset from the Russians to advance to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Cup.

Enjoy these live TV highlights of the match between Marseille and Zenit St Petersburg.

3/8/2008 FA Cup Match Highlights - Manchester United vs Portsmouth

This was a great match and watching back the match highlights you would not believe that Portsmouth could have come away with a result like this. It was just another day of Manchester United guilty of wasteful finishing and being made to pay for it by Portsmouth. To us, it was a classic smash and grab affair. Portsmouth were hardly in the game and must be thanking their lucky stars that they got away with it, although they did work hard for the result. The minus points of the game were the rants from Alex Ferguson and Ronaldo which really spoke volumes of their sportsmanship. I guess if you lost, no matter what, be gracious about it. Manchester United created tons of opportunities and if you do not put the ball in the net, you simply won't deserve to get anything. Watch this nice match highlights from a fan and enjoy the atmosphere from the FA Cup match between Manchester United and Portsmouth. Portsmouth are going to Wembley and good luck to them!

3/9/2008 English Premier League - Will Tottenham Hotspur Recover To Beat West Ham United?

Throughout our time loving soccer live commentary on the English Premier League, games such as this Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United would often cause us to salivate with the thought of the flowing football that would be on offer for 90 minutes. Spurs have long had a tradition of being an attractive footballing side and together with the many talented legends throughout the club's history such as Gary Lineker, Glenn Hoddle and the unfortunate Paul Gascoigne, has always been looked upon as a different proposition to hard nosed teams like Bolton Wanderers and Wimbledon. However, they also have the tag of massive underachievers and given the plethora of attacking talent at their disposal it has been the gross mismanagement in the club that has led to too many disappointments and not enough success. With the recent appointment of Spanish manager Juande Ramos, it is hoped that this will change and the early signs are promising after their recent Carling Cup success.

However, the results after that achievement has been nothing short of disappointing, with two losses on the trot in the English Premier League and UEFA Cup. While Ramos has attributed both defeats to too much revelry post Carling Cup final and an over estimation of the team's abilities against a seasoned European side in PSV Eindhoven, there is still unfinished business on the Spanish manager's hands, and it must continue tonight against London rival West Ham United, who has undergone a mini revival of sorts this season. However, as this live radio commentary broadcast between Tottenham and West Ham United will be looking forward to, both teams are best known for producing polished footballing sides that prefer to play the game as it is best loved, and that is on the ground with short incisive passes and long balls when needed to break the monotony and the opposition's predictability.

West Ham United has endured a torrid time of late which has been slightly undoing their season's work. Fans and the team were expecting to carry on the good work but after two heavy defeats against Chelsea and Liverpool, which are not to be ashamed of except for the nature of the defeat in which the team played poorly, there have been some heads drooping and heavy legs which manager Alan Curbishley must work hard to remedy in time for this live radio broadcast commentary match against Tottenham or face a demoralising end to the season. The key reason could be the injury and subsequent absence of Matthew Upson who has been a rock all season with his defensive strength, which has earned him a well deserved call up to the England national squad under Fabio Capello. But the many injuries have also exposed a lack of depth in Curbishley's squad, which could prove to be their undoing. However, they still need to earn a few more points to assure themselves of not being sucked into a relegation battle, but that should be of minor concern as there is enough quality in the team and manager to pull them through.

3/9/2008 English Premier League - Can Wigan Bury Arsenal Hopes?

In the English Premier League today, Wigan Athletic will meet Arsenal at their home of the JJB Stadium in a forthcoming live commentary matchup in the world's best league, eager to gather all three points in a difficult game against one of the best teams that Arsene Wenger has ever forged. With the patchy pitch ready to entertain both teams that would have hoped for a better conditioned field, Wigan will hope to be allied with this weapon in their arsenal knowing that the young Gunners are not known to cope well with rough pitches that hinder their preferred game of smooth passing soccer on the ground. Also, with the rough and tumble nature of Wigan's game, they will try to impose the pace and frenetic ping pong soccer that often leaves Arsenal perplexed as they struggle to provide any definite answers in reply to such tactics, despite Arsene Wenger's best efforts in instilling a British nature to the core of his team, which mostly results only in their tackling and running but dealing with teams that refuse to play the ball on the ground can severely hamper Arsenal's effectiveness in any game.

However, with the fantastic win against AC Milan at San Siro under their belts, Arsenal will prepare for this live broadcast English Premier League game against Wigan with much confidence and belief. The belief that they might have turned the corner in their recent bad spell coupled with a terrible injury to their teammate and treasured striker Eduardo has also galvanised the squad with players like Matthieu Flamini voicing his and the team's determination to overcome the odds and win the EPL title for their fallen colleague. While this was followed by a difficult draw at home to Aston Villa, the young Gunners drew even closer together and showed the world just how much potential and promise they had by beating the Italian masters AC Milan at their own game in their own backyard of the San Siro. With the stunning upset of Milan however, the focus and spotlight now falls back on Arsenal and their title tilt, and it is this same scenario which they have not provided the best answer in reply, with regular capitulation in the face of pressure in their domestic league. Will Arsenal be able to put their domestic hoodoo behind against Wigan, or will Wigan capitalise on their soddy pitch to upset the English Premier League leaders - find out in this live radio broadcast commentary of their match at the JJB Stadium.
