Hey now! Good Day to you! We're going to jump right into today's fray with our Scribes. Lovely.
Barney Ronay is taking a look at the Premier League situation. He says this: A settled-looking team and strong form give Arsenal reasons for cheer but Manchester City and United are better than the derby suggested and should soon hit their stride as players bed in. Mike Goodman is also taking a closer look. But, he's interested in the race for fourth.
Tuesday! Time for Marcotti's Musings. This week, Gab is gabbing that the Manchester derby lacked star quality, Mourinho woe, Madrid and Barca win.
OK. Matches today. We've got a bunch of tasty League Cup matches in England and one match in Serie A in Italy. And this from Alan Smith: Carvalhal makes Wednesday feel special after José Mourinho’s help. Oh, and Charlie Nicholas has some Carling Cup Predictions, too.
Right! That'll do.
