one of the highlights of the season got to be watching the scousers put up such a shoddy title defence!

Dwight McNeils goal yesterday was top draw. Pretty sure he won't ever score another one quite like it.

His red almost got Spurs a point. Second best till they went down to 10 men.

Doherty is awful. Hopefully sold in the summer.

There isn't a general football league thread but just need to say that being a Cambridge United fan for my entire life and suddenly having Wesley Hoolahan in my team this season is a feeling that you just cannot fathom.

He's untouchable on the pitch. He is constantly just making space out of nowhere, and shrugging players off even though he's just over five and a half feet tall. Every ball he plays is eye of the needle vision. He's three years older than our manager. The man is utterly magical.

Had a similar feeling when my team picked up Ibson the year before we went to the MLS.

Newcastle in another shocking performance against Brighton who battered us at the start of the season. Only way I can see us staying up is if we can get ASM & Wilson fit as without those two we have zero threat going forwards. Can see Bruce going after that result

Never seen anything more half-arsed than that Bournemouth pre-match huddle in my life

Today I'll be watching Sheffield United most likely score no goals at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup followed by Arsenal travelling to East London to take on a Hammers side dreaming of Europe. Then after that it's back to the FA Cup with what should be the highest scoring game of the day with United taking on Leicester. Dinner will be served before an entertaining affair no doubt to see if Mourinho has lost the dressing room in what would be an easy 3 points in any other season for them. Should be easier with Grealish still out with an injury right? Think again. This is Spurs and not only can anything happen, it usually does Sticking out tongue

The only football bet I do is laying on Palace to be relegated when our odds are short (usually first months of the season). It has worked out for me last 8 years Smiling

Other than that no. Just watch football for the love of the game.

For a bit of fun I'll try to predict todays games and first goalscorer. We'll probably find out why I'm not a gambling man. Laughing out loud


Chelsea 3 Sheffield United 0 (Werner)
West Ham 2 Arsenal 1 (Souček)
United 2 Leicester* 2 (Bruno) *foxes win penalty shoot out after ET
Villa 1 Spurs 3 (Kane)

Sounded a bit like Partridge describing the Bond marathon

I'll take that.

I'll also take my 2-2 prediction of Leicester United. Ole just messed it up with a poor starting 11.
