Stoke’s Tony Pulis Grabs F&C INVESTMENTS PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK AWARD

LMA

The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that this week, the F&C Investments Performance of the Week Award should go to Stoke City following their excellent 1-0 away win against West Bromwich Albion in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday 1st December 2012.

Manager Tony Pulis will receive a specially engraved crystal football in a presentation to commemorate the award.

On 75 minutes Dean Whitehead steered the winner in from fellow substitute Michael Kightly’s cross after great perseverance by Kenwyne Jones. Jones did brilliantly to pressurise Jonas Olsson on the right flank and Whitehead was able to profit to give Stoke a first win on the road in the top flight since they beat Blackburn Rovers last January. Their fourth victory from five games sees them move up to ninth in the Premier League table.

Manager Tony Pulis was naturally delighted;

“It was a great result because we haven’t won away from home this season. We have drawn four away but could easily have won a couple of those. Every one of the players who played gave it everything.

“We were quite happy to let them have the ball and try to counter-attack. We wanted to make sure they didn’t get behind us.

“We didn’t want to lose the ball in bad areas. They play between the lines very well. We are delighted to get a clean sheet and win the game.

“We have done well defensively, but we have done well all season. It has been a very good week but we don’t get too carried away when we are winning or too despondent when we are losing.”

Man Utd | Premier League | Ferguson doubts Chelsea’s Claims

Sir Alex Ferguson does not believe referee Mark Clattenburg used “inappropriate language” towards Chelsea player John Mikel Obi.

“I don’t believe Mark Clattenburg would make any comments like that. I refuse to believe it,” Ferguson said at a news conference before of tomorrow’s match against Arsenal. “I think it is unthinkable in the modern climate. There is no way a referee would stoop to that, I am convinced of that.”

In response Roberto Di Matteo has criticised Sir Alex Ferguson for getting involved in Chelsea’s argument with Mark Clattenburg.

Di Matteo said: “He likes to talk about other clubs. We tend not to. I’ll leave it up to him.

“It’s a free country where everybody has the freedom of speech. We’ll take into consideration what other people say and use it as a motivational tool for ourselves.”


Ferdinands issue statement [racism]

Statement issued by New Era Global Sports

It has been a year since the incident at Loftus Road. During that time, some of the deep divisions that exist in football have been exposed. In the coming months there will be ongoing discussions, we are sure, on finding a way forward. We intend to participate in these discussions, along with numerous other current and ex-professionals of all races, from the grass roots upwards, across the football community as a whole.

On the issue of Kick It Out, we would like to go on record to say what fantastic work they have done in the past regarding education and awareness. However, times change and organisations need to change with them. We are more than happy to join the discussion, privately, to make Kick It Out more relevant in its fight to stamp out racism in football.

Although we have been left disappointed by the PFA and the FA’s actions over the last year, as a family, we are committed to working with football’s existing organisations towards the betterment of the game and to achieve immediate action.

We would like to thank all the fans and the staff at Queens Park Rangers and Manchester United for their support in what has been a difficult year. In particular we want to thank Sir Alex Ferguson and Mark Hughes.

We will not be discussing publicly any issues connected with the case. We are now going to concentrate on playing football.

– Rio and Anton Ferdinand
