Episode 41: Kop To The Top

Wait what year is this? Liverpool is on top of the English first division table and Manchester United is mid table? Did someone transport us back to 1979? It may feel like 1979 but it is very much 2014 and the Two Daft Yanks are back to cover the Read more

Manchester United Targeting The Europa League?

Posted on by Chad in Blog, EPL | Leave a comment

With just a few fixture dates left in this 2013/2014 Premier league season Manchester United is chasing a spot in Europe for next season. It just happens to be the “other” continental competition now known as the Europa League (get those Thursday night, Channel 5 chants ready). When Manchester United miss out on the Champions League it will be the first time ever they missed out on the competition since it’s reorganization and rebranding in 1992. Don’t worry though the Red Devils still want a piece of that continental pie even though the only option left is sitting at the kid’s table of the Europa League. Goalkeeper David de Gea has backed his squad to keep going in order to qualify saying:

…we want to finish as high as we can in the league, ensure we’re playing in a European competition next season and show we are still around and that we will never give in.

The question now is, will Manchester United feel they are below playing in the Europa League? Will their supporters and more importantly their players take the competition seriously if they are to qualify? These are questions that need to be answered but may not need answering unless United can improve their league position over the final few matches.

FA Cup 2014 Semifinal Nuggetz!

Posted on by Corey in Daftness, England, FA Cup | Leave a comment

Here we are kiddos, nuggeteerz & twodaftyankophiles; one step away from the most glorious FA Cup style nugget of them all. Tomorrow resumes the formerly-hallowed-but-currently-seemingly-losing-prominence-because-of-Champions-League-worshipers competition of the FA Cup. Chad and I love it. You should love it. It’s like March Madness. Except better.

Anyway, we have one match on Saturday and one on Sunday with most of the attention of the FA Cup 2014 chase being centered on the former match. The holders, mighty Wigan Athletic take on collapsing Arsenal. The latter has made a habit of recently turning losing matches into a Wurld Class! ™ impression of a late season Sp*rs collapse. Diabolically poor defending? Check. Heartless performances? Check. Cracking under the slightest bit of pressure? Check. Dodgy pans of lasagna from Food Poison Catering?…. Erm, the last one, I’m not sure.

Meanwhile, Wigan have turned the FA Cup into their own personal giant killing fields. Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun beware! Wigan of the Night’s Watch is also on quite the tear of late in the Championship as well, winning something like eleventy million games in a row last month. Or something. They’re led by one of the new hot managerial commodities of the lower leagues, former German international, Uwe Rosler. Wigan’s roster is littered with former bannermen and sellswords who once plied their tried in the Premier League Kingdom and indeed were only relegated and stripped of EPL lands and titles only last year. However, their cup form and recent campaigning under Uwe of House Rosler may see them return to gentrified air of the EPLK next season.

An Arsenal loss may even see stalwart and long-reigning lord, Arsène of House Wenger, (proverbially) lose his head or at the very least, banished across the narrow sea to possibly land in places like Paris of the Lights or Royal Madrid of the Lands of Places That Actually Get Sun.

What say you, green boys and girls, smallfolk, and craven bastards? Treachery abounds everywhere, will it unseat Arsenal once again?

Wigan of the Night’s Watch 3, Sp*rs 2.0 2 

Sunday’s match pits the Fat Leno masked army of the Hull City AFC / Hull Tigers / Fat Leno Mask FC against the Sheffield United, they of the clever-or-not-actually-clever-nickname-which-I-couldn’t-now-just-come-up-with. I mean really, I know little to nothing about Sheffield United except that they were started in 2010, following Gary Sheffield’s retirement from Major League Baseball. The man needed something to do and was listening to Pink Floyd’s “Money” one late evening and took the line about “I think I’ll buy me a football team,” literally and did just that. Okay, none of that is actually true. But I bet Sheffield United could beat the Mets, Sheffield’s last team, either in baseball, rounders or football/soccer. Because, you know… the Mets are pants.

So, for this match I’m thinking Fat Leno Mask FC over Gary Sheffield United simply because the Tigers are currently EPL and Gary Sheffield isn’t.

Fat Leno Mask FC 2, Sheffield United 0

Tim Sherwood’s New WHL Technical Area

Posted on by Chad in Blog, Daftness | Leave a comment

Tim Sherwood the gilet wearing Spurs boss has had a few incidents on the touchline controlling in his temper and emotions. This has forced the first time manager away from the technical area (either forced or voluntary, it is still not clear) to the stands to observe his side during matches. From the stands Sherwood feels that he can get a better view and feel for the game allowing him to give his players better instructions via radio to his assistants below. Sherwood is not satisfied though and I can report that to get an even better view of the pitch, Sherwood has ordered the removal of the famous golden cockerel above White Hart Lane. The former title winning Blackburn captain wants the best view possible to make his astute tactical observations and will be overseeing the match on Monday against Sunderland on his newly installed perch. See it EXCLUSIVELY below:
