All those fans piping up to say Ronaldo isn’t good enough :lol: :lol:
Still good enough to score plenty of goals.

Not good enough to improve any team he's played for in the past 5 years.

I didn’t even need to look at Spurs next fixture to know it would be an easy game. I think from now on I’ll be betting on the big six or whatever they were called to win every game.

Of course the old adage is that you concentrate on your own games and whatever will be will be with the teams around you, but looking at the weekends fixtures, unless we beat Chelsea we won’t be staying in Top 4.
With that in mind, a draw would still be a good result vs Chelsea.

You play everyone twice so spurs easy games will be our easy games when they come around don't forget brentford beat us which was one of our easy games so you don't know what the outcome will be

Unfortunately I think Sours are the most likely to get that 4th position
Not because they are any good but more because under Conte they will be organised, consistent and more motivated - they will also spend some money in January
Outside the top 3 the league is pretty rubbish so any team that shows any degree of consisistency has a chance

I think it'll be Man Utd now that they're not managed by a fraud.

That squad is good enough to be amongst the other three at the top, they'll string some results together in no time.

I've heard from a few sources now that spurs will give Conte money to spend, I've also heard that they are over a Billion pounds in debt that is increasing at over a hundred million a year, how on earth with ffp is this happening?

Surprised De Gea is getting away so lightly with that goal yesterday.

Arsenal copping pelters from some quarters for bad sportsmanship yet the only gamesmanship on display was him trying to get an attack shut down.

I think the top 3 are the top 3 by a distance, but my sense is that the other 3 of the 'big six' are beginning to get their act in order. :furrow: Not a great time to have our dip in form, but everyone plays everyone so lets see where we are at the end of the season.

I'm sorry we are not good enough for top 4 with this squad at the moment if we buy in January we might have chance but other clubs will buy especially spurs

As much as we are 4th for a reason, Wolves are 6th for a reason, holding off Liverpool well here.

Liverpool 94th minute winner. No idea if they deserved it or not but they score so many late goals. I suppose it is good for us. Keep the wolves away and we are not fighting Liverpool.

They were poor in the final third today, but the goal was sheer class. Outstanding crossfield pass to Salah, exquisite first touch got him in behind. Simple pull back to Origi who turned and finished very well.

Jota completely ballsed up a simple chance earlier, shooting straight at a defender from 6 yards with the keeper out the game on the wing.

Jota is a very hot and cold player, I can see why Klopp prefers Firminio he is far more consistent not as spectacular but you know what you will get

Newcastle vs Burnley both teams looked poor, Burnley really have no on and Dyche has performed miracles on paper, Cornet went off injured too, I think this might finally be Burnley's year

Hope Watford keep Danny Rose in the team by the time we play them!

Man City 1-0 up.
