  7. Moyes' men deliver for him

    Musa Okwonga

    Well, well, well, this was remarkable. The prematch conversation had been dominated by fears that the home team would produce another performance of all-too-common lethargy and a defeat would bring the manager a step closer to the trapdoor. B...

  12. Rooney strikes to keep dark forces at bay

    Musa Okwonga

    Phew. It is a tribute to the job that Tony Pulis has done since his arrival at Crystal Palace that an away win over them is treated with relief. Manchester United's margin of victory was ultimately somewhat flattering against a team which has trouble...
