I absolutely love Tottenham. Anyone that says they are overachieving is a fool. Near on two seasons and they just get better. Team spirit seems fantastic and I love those silly handshakes. Goals all over attack, dynamic, interchangeable midfielders and a pure goalscorer. 

 

I think Poch will keep them together and they will improve further. 

Its nice to see them having fun, rather than acting like they have the World on their shoulders and that being a top level performer, of any kind, isnt a crushing burden. Itd be good to see them win something, anything, to get that monkey off their backs.

 

On a different subject Everton have banned the Sun after the paper slated Ross Barkley for some reason.

I'm surprised they didn't do it when Liverpool did. Will The Sun attempt to make amends to the city now or will this be the next Daily Mail vs Wikipedia?

Well theyve suspended him but he needs to at least be sacked. I hope Everton keep the ban up forever.

 

The cunt should never have been writing for any newspaper especially the one he was editor of.at the time of Hillsbrough.

I would argue that the overall standard is actually weaker now. Remember that to be in the competition, you had to either be your country's league champions or be the holders of the European Cup, so you were never routinely playing the 3rd or 4th best team from any country - everybody was there on merit. There was no league stage where you could lose a few games and still progress, it was all knockout. The standard of football/tactics/fitness not being at today's levels is a red herring - you can only play what's in front of you. Should we dismiss the achievements of every other European Cup winning side too? Those great Ajax, Bayern, Real Madrid and Liverpool sides that also won it 2 or 3 years running - are they no good any more because they didn't beat Barcelona in 2009?

 

If Leicester win it this season, it'll be well-deserved and a fantastic achievement, not some fluke unworthy of praise.

Someone is also bound to trot out the list of teams that you had to beat back then and compare them to now. Completely missing out that the Eastern European and smaller teams were significantly stronger relative to the top four leagues back then.

De Gea did not have a shot to save, having a keeper and a wing back out doesn't explain that. Think anyone playing Chelsea from now till the end of the season will be taking a close look at United's performance today. Still think they'll win the league at a canter, Spurs have four points to make up, and surely with their run in (Palace and Leicester might be tricky as they're both decided to no longer be shit, then they have to play us and Arsenal) they will drop some points even with how well they're playing. Still, at least it's interesting now.

The title race is back on, isn't it? Spurs look irresistible. Chelsea are still a fantastic team, but one or two things are starting to go against them. They've been unlucky with a couple of decisions, their striker isn't in great form, their intensity and confidence seem to have slipped a bit, they've got a couple of players out injured.

 

You'd still rather be in their position than Spurs' though. Four points is still a good lead at this stage of the season. One week when they win and Spurs drop points, and they'll be cruising again.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with them next season, regardless of what happens in the league. Costa seems to be using his limited number of brain cells to pick fights and generally be a dick, rather than help win Chelsea games. Madrid look like they're after Hazard, and (perhaps less importantly) it looks like the ink is dry on a deal taking Fabregas to Milan. They will be in Europe again and their squad depth doesn't seem to be too great, although they've got a million players on loan still, so probably not the hardest thing to fix.

On yes, but Chelsea still have to lose two more than Spurs.

 

Chelsea's hardest opponents are Southampton and Everton.

 

Spurs have Arsenal and yes... United.

I want Spurs to win the league. Maybe not this year but next year. They've got fantastic, young players. I adore Dele and Kane. Dele is a peach of a player. Dier, Rose, Walker, Trippier, Winks, What a future they all have as a team. A team of young English players accompanied by some fabulous non-English players. I love watching them. They're terrific.

I can taste the bitterness from here.

 

I was just reminding those Mancs that keep telling me they aren't getting decisions this season that they are. Also I actually quite enjoyed it for once, I hate Chelsea more than I hate United; therefore not bitter at all.

I am chuffed to see Winks getting a mention there, he doesn't do really anything flashy but whenever he has played this season he hasn't looked out of place in a title chasing team, which is no mean feat for someone in his first season.

 

Hopefully Marcus Edwards will be the next youth player to break into the first team as he looks incredibly exciting to watch.
