Talk of the Turnstile – 25th April

Welcome to another edition of Talk of the Turnstile, bringing a weekly round up of all things football and SoccerStarz!

The big talking point of the week has been David Moyes’ sacking from Manchester United. Following a dismal season, Manchester United dispatched of “the chosen one” and will now be looking for a new boss. Ryan Giggs. To read more on Moyes and Manchester United click HERE

The 1st leg of the Champions League semi-finals took place this season you can read how they went HERE

We are in the business end of the season now with a plethora of teams fighting for their lives at the bottom of the Premier League and with Liverpool sky high in the Premier League. Three of a possible nine could still yet, mathematically, be relegated. It will almost certainly go down to the final day of the season. Of all the sides, Norwich have the hardest run in as their final three games are Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal so spare a thought for them.

As for the top, Liverpool currently command a five point lead as Chelsea lost 2-1 at home, yes at home, for Mourinho’s first ever home defeat as a Chelsea boss. That record had spanned 77 games. Manchester City are still in with a shout with a game in hand but six points behind. They will need Liverpool to slip up in their final three games and this weekend could prove the turning point as Liverpool host Chelsea.

Some brief headlines

  • David Moyes sacked as Manchester United manager after only 10 months
  • Louis Van Gaal wants to replace Moyes at United
  • “I will ask the club for permission to play a weakened side” Mourinho looking to play with a weaker side against Liverpool to make sure his players are fit for the Champions League
