Una avvincente giornata di EPL  consente al Liverpool di guidare, solitario, il massimo campionato inglese. I “Reds” hanno superato di misura, una rete a zero, il Man Utd mentre nell’ altro big match di giornata l’ Arsenal, con il medesimo punteggio, ha piegato gli Spurs al termine di un avvincente derby, ricco di agonismo. In Scozia la massima divisione è guidata dall’ Inverness che fino a qui ha conquistato solo vittorie, eccetto un pareggio in trasferta sul terreno dei Celtic. Nella League One i Rangers hanno già preso il largo con quattro vittorie su quattro gare, 18 reti fatte ed una subita, pur non potendo avere a disposizione i nuovi acquisti fino al 1 settembre 2013 ( eccetto due schierabili come “trialists”). Sul fronte ordine pubblico disordini a Stoke on Trent per la gara tra Port Vale e Wolves. Le due tifoserie hanno cercato di venire a contatto, particolarmente duri gli scontri tra i fans del Port Vale e la polizia, Almeno 23 persone sono state arrestate.

Daniel Sturridge

1 September 2013 Last updated at 17:22


Liverpool secured their best start to a Premier League season since 1994-95 with victory over champions Manchester United at Anfield.

Daniel Sturridge celebrated his 24th birthday with his third successive winner of the season by steering in a close-range header in the third minute.

Liverpool deserved their latest single-goal victory, a result that also maintained new United manager David Moyes’ miserable record at Anfield.

Moyes hoped for better luck with United after 12 games without victory as Everton manager – but his team came up short despite enjoying plenty of possession in the second half after being outplayed before the break.

Liverpool v Man Utd stats

  • Liverpool are the first team since Chelsea in 2010-11 to win their opening three league games without conceding a goal
  • United have only failed to score once in their last seven Premier League trips to Anfield
  • Liverpool have won their opening three games of a Premier League season for the first time since 1994-95
  • United boss David Moyes has never enjoyed a Premier League victory at Anfield, losing five and drawing six

The visitors were without Wayne Rooney after he suffered a head wound in training, which also keeps him out of England’s World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine. How they missed his creativity.

Robin van Persie squandered United’s best chance late on but otherwise it was a relatively comfortable afternoon for Liverpool’s new goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who has yet to concede a Premier League goal since his £9m summer move from Sunderland.

And it was a fitting victory for Liverpool as Anfield celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of their legendary Scottish manager Bill Shankly.

Current incumbent Brendan Rodgers will surely settle for fourth place this season and the early evidence hints at great promise, with suspended striker Luis Suarez still to return.

As for United, this was a performance lacking in inspiration, purpose and threat and once again underlined the urgency for transfer business to be done in the closing hours of the transfer window.

Everton’s Marouane Fellaini looks one certain arrival but Moyes, who also saw United held to a draw by Chelsea at Old Trafford on Monday, needs even more of a spark in a midfield that looked laboured by this team’s standards.

Liverpool 1-0 Man Utd: Moyes says Man Utd deserved penalty

Having suffered the loss of Rooney just as he had returned to the fold, Moyes’ mood will not have improved as Liverpool took the lead in the third minute. Ashley Young’s ill-advised attempt to dribble out of danger ended in a corner and when Steven Gerrard’s delivery was headed goalwards by Daniel Agger, Sturridge deflected it home from virtually on the line.

United’s initial response was bright, with Young’s corner drifting untouched across the six-yard area and Van Persie just unable to keep an overhead kick down.

Moyes was forced into a first-half reshuffle when Phil Jones, watched by England manager Roy Hodgson ahead of World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine, limped off and was replaced by Antonio Valencia.

Liverpool 1-0 Man Utd: Brendan Rodgers hails winning mentality

But as the half progressed, Liverpool’s pressure and high-tempo passing game increased United’s frustration and it threatened to boil over on the stroke of half-time when Van Persie, who had already been booked, was involved in angry verbal exchanges with several Liverpool players, particularly Gerrard.

United began with more purpose in the early phase of the second half and Liverpool were grateful for Glen Johnson’s crucial block from Young’s goalbound shot.

It was the disappointing Young’s final contribution as he was replaced by Nani shortly after Liverpool had introduced Raheem Sterling for Iago Aspas.

United were having more possession but a sign of the effectiveness of Liverpool’s defence was that it took the visitors 76 minutes to force Mignolet into serious action, when he dived to punch away a shot from substitute Nani.

There was another worry for Liverpool, and watching England boss Hodgson, when Johnson limped off with 13 minutes left.

Van Persie wasted United’s best chance with three minutes left when he was played in by substitute Javier Hernandez but could not find the target with an angled finish.

McKay 10′, 32′

  • FT 90 +3
  • HT 2-0

31 August 2013 Last updated at 16:54



Inverness remain top of the Scottish Premiership following a convincing victory over 10-man Hearts.

A first-half double from Billy McKay ensured Terry Butcher’s men took the three points.

McKay could have scored more as he missed from the penalty spot following Jamie Hamill’s dismissal in the second half for deliberate handball.

The hosts should have added to their victory with McKay, Richie Foran and James Vincent coming close.

Despite it being top versus bottom in the SPFL encounter the message given to the hosts beforehand would have been that looks can be deceiving.

Although Gary Locke’s men are marooned at the bottom of the table, they have made a promising start, making inroads into their 15-point administration deficit, having gone three games unbeaten since their opening day defeat to St Johnstone.

But Caley Thistle were intent on putting up blockades to stop them chipping further away at their penalty, with McKay a constant nuisance to the visitors, who should have had a hat-trick at least and Hearts’ cause was not helped by Hamill’s late sending off.

Play media


Inverness had made the gesture of donating £5 to the Hearts supporters’ fighting fund for every ticket sold over the average away support attendance of 650 before the game, however, their play was much less charitable as confidence oozed through the team from their own sizzling start to the season.

After a bright start by Hearts, with Jamie Walker having a half-chance – dragging his shot wide – Butcher’s men took the lead through McKay as he rifled the ball past Hearts goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald after excellent build-up play by David Raven.

Locke’s side, though, have exhibited a determination and indefatigable spirit this campaign and it was typified by the way Callum Paterson battled hard down the wing before Walker once again attempted to beat goalkeeper Dean Brill from the angle.

However, Inverness are top of the league on merit and they put a massive dent into Hearts’ hopes of grabbing anything from the match when McKay doubled their lead, clinically, curling a shot past MacDonald from a Vincent pass on a ruthless Thistle counter-attack.

Play media


Hearts were close to getting themselves back into the game shortly before half-time as Walker rattled the post after sloppy play by Caley Thistle defender Graeme Shinnie.

Inverness defender Gary Warren threatened to compound Hearts’ problems when his header cannoned off the crossbar before McKay came close to the hat-trick twice in quick succession.

Foran then powered a 30-yard drive bringing out the best in shot-stopper MacDonald as Inverness continued to pile pressure on the visitors.

A mistake from Scott Robinson nearly gave McKay another opportunity to take the match ball home with him but MacDonald was determined to thwart the 24-year-old.

Hearts finished the game with 10 men for the second week in succession as Hamill was dismissed for deliberate handball in the box but the visiting goalkeeper denied McKay his hat-trick.

Stoke football match ends with fan violence and 23 arrests


Local derby between Port Vale and Wolves sees home fans throwing missiles at police officers and smashing up a marked squad car



At least 23 people have been arrested following crowd trouble at a football match in Stoke between Port Vale and visiting local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Missiles and bottles were thrown at officers, a marked police car was vandalised and two adults suffered police dog bite injuries as violent disorder broke out following the League One fixture.

Staffordshire Police said a “significant group of home fans” were involved in concerted efforts to target police fan segregation lines.

Officers will now be examining CCTV from the day in order to track down anyone who contributed to the unrest, and Port Vale said the club would fully support the police in punishing those involved.

At the end of the match, while Wolves comfortably won 3-1, supporters moved out into nearby Burslem town centre in Stoke-on-Trent, at which point the most serious violence flared up.

Various missiles were thrown at officers and a marked police car was smashed up, while two adults had to be treated by paramedics after they suffered bites from police dog units.

The arrests included nine prior to kick-off, while another four were detained during the game for offences such as setting off flares and invading the pitch.

Police said they were “disappointed” by the events which occurred despite extensive preparations from both club officials and officers.

On the afternoon of the game Staffordshire Police had posted a video in a leading Port Vale fan forum, showcasing new crowd control measures including a large metal “Police Cordon” fence.

While one forum user commented “I hope it works… the last thing we need is crowd trouble,” another said it was “a waste of money, massively over the top reaction to a League One fixture.”

Some fans have now questioned whether the 3.00pm kick-off should have been allowed to take place so late in the day. Local derbies are often brought forward as a measure to avoid crowd trouble.

Staffs police said fans from both sides had been involved but praised a group of Wolves supporters who “co-operated with police by waiting in the away coach park whilst police worked to clear the area”.

Chief Inspector Dave Bird, of Staffordshire Police, said: “We are disappointed by the actions of this significant number of so-called fans who attended today’s fixture intent on becoming involved in disorder.”

CCTV evidence will be examined and all those arrested will be “questioned about their actions”, he added.

“The behaviour of this significant minority doesn’t represent the club or our city.

”We will now continue to work with Port Vale to reduce the opportunity for future disorder.“

Bill Lodey, Port Vale club secretary, said: ”The club are bitterly disappointed regarding the violence that has been reported in Burslem town centre.

“We will fully support any actions taken by the police in apprehending those responsible and they can expect severe penalties.”

Un noto leader di una Firm, richiesto di commentare i consueti incidenti procurati all’estero dai Lads, dichiarò alla stampa “Margaret Thatcher    ci deve condannare pubblicamente ma dentro di sè sarà sicuramente orgogliosa del lavoro fatto dai ragazzi”.. Questo libro si propone come un viaggio attraverso quarant’anni di trasferte oltre Manica dei Casuals britannici al seguito delle selezioni nazionali e delle squadre di club. La narrazione delle principali trasferte può facilmente diventare il paradigma per descrivere centinaia di giornate nelle quali le firms hanno esportato all’estero il loro bagaglio di fedeltà, nazionalismo, alcoolismo e, spesso, anche violenza. Il volume si propone come naturale seguito di “Lads 2009”, dello stesso autore, che illustra la scena attuale dei mobs britannici tra le mura domestiche.
