Easy Game for Vito Mannone, Mcnulty Again Scores

Vito Mannone will most probably be wishing that most of the games for the remaining of his career should be as easy as the match he played on last Sunday when the club of Minnesota United hosted the Columbus Crew in a match that ended by a score of 1-0 to the hosts. It was mostly one-sided match for the most part of the game, with Mannone not required to make even a single save throughout the match. In spite of their dominant performance, it took Minnesota United until the 70th minute to draw the first blood, but it was a simple case of when they would score and not whether they will score.

Blended emotions this past week for Sone Aluko, as Sone made an amazing start to the scoring of game only after 2 minutes far from home, but his side Beijing Renhe ended the game on the wrong side with a scoreline of 3-1 at the hands of Moussa Dembele who is the former midfielder of Tottenham Hotspur & his R&F team of Guangzhou. It has been a worrisome beginning to the season for Beijing Renhe. Just after 1st 10 games, they have found themselves at the bottom of the table with only 5 points in hand, but they are also just 2 points adrift. 2 games in a matter of some days for the Ludogorets view them getting into the final day of this season 1 point ahead of the title rivals i.e. CSKA Sofia. I have also mentioned the terrible discipline record in Bulgaria earlier, so most probably you would be forgiven for believing that Joey was one who was out on loan.

Vito Mannone Once Again From Damage To Battle For Reading FC Beginning Spot

Administrator Paul Clement has affirmed Vito Mannone is back in conflict for a beginning spot during the current week’s Championship diversions. Mannone has lost the previous four matches because of preparation ground damage, leaving summer select Sam Walker as the administrator’s favored decision in the objective. At that movement, Royals have grabbed in shape with two successes over Preston North End and a draw most as of late at Brentford on Saturday.

Vito Mannone – The Number One Champion

Vito Mannone has been the number one champion as far as the last season is concerned. However, there are chances that he may be challenged by Walker as well as Anssi Jaakkola. In addition, Luke Southwood, Lewis Ward and George Legg are the youngsters who are yet to make the appearances, but will join Jokull Andresson to head out on loan. John O’Shea is also trying to fill in the game as a goalkeeper. As far as the performances of Vito Mannone in the last season is concerned, he did a spectacular job and was the best replacement for Ali Al-Habsi, but the high standards of Omani did make a repetition of his excellence. He did show his best performances in the matches last season with a 3-1 win prior to the late penalty against Leeds United and QPR which indeed saves the championship status of Reading.

Vito Mannone alongside Sam Walker is likely to take part for the first-team position and Mannone would begin the season as number one. There is a probability that Walker may push him hard during the match and try to get more scores in the league football. However, Mannone likes challenges and will surely do his best to show his excellence as a winner. Mannone has been playing for Reading as he signed a 3 year contract with them in the year 2017. However, the contract fee was not disclosed which may have been close to £2 million.
