Here’s my little update from the world of football. Since my last blog both Manchester clubs have slipped out of the Champions League. It’s a blow for both teams as they would both fancy their chances of going the distance. The Europa League awaits them both but I fell City will take that tournament more seriously than United. Mancini has already said he would like to win it, and the noise from old Trafford are more of its an embarrassed feeling of being there.
In the Premier League, Tottenham's six game winning run came to an end at Stoke on Sunday. Arsenal are in the top four for the first time this season. They haven’t lost in the league since their defeat to Spurs back in October.
From the promoted sides Norwich are sitting in 10th Swansea 11th & QPR 13th. All three clubs will be more than happy to finish there come May.
Routed to the bottom are Bolton after their opening day win at Loftus Road they have only beaten Wigan & Stoke in the league. Losing the rest, but Coyle doesn't seem under pressure, not like his rival down the road Steve Kean. A man under pressure from fans since day one has had all type of stick. With a real battle on his hands to keep his job he will have to try and pick up wins fast as were nearing the transfer window, that could be a time when changes are made. Wigan sit in the last relegation place, but form has improved with two wins from their last three. However with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Stoke coming next it will be a hard Christmas.
In the Championship Southampton are sitting pretty at the top with West Ham second. As always the Championship is tight, with 8 points separating 3rd & 12th.In League One Charlton have a 5 point gap from Sheffield Wednesday in seconded. MK Dons are the form team with 7 wins from their last 7 games.
