If Hodgson could pull off a miracle, I’ll consider forgiving his time with us. 

Seconded. We only want a draw, Roy. You owe us.

Leeds have tightened up at the back under their new manager, so they may be more stubborn than people are giving them credit for.

Would rather if Leeds weren't fully safe and still had something to fight for. Thank God Bielsa isn't there, because they could eat into the goal difference. We just need a capable manager with cop on to make life difficult like Palace and Southampton did a few weeks back. Would have a bit of hope with Wolves and West Ham. Maybe Leeds could be a challenge but I wouldn't have faith in them.

 

With Newcastle, it's a different dynamic even though they would be safe. Aside from the fact, they are now the most vile football club in the world, you would have to say that for the footballers who are there, they must be desperate to make an impression and be kept on, knowing that Newcastle will probably have a huge summer. I know I'm worried about that away game, because it's a 12:30 fuckfest and their place is bound to be bouncing.

Im ever the optomist Ronnie but if Im absolutely honest, I dont know where city would drop points in their remaining games. It is going to be a truely unexpected event.

 

Fucking West Ham and Leicester aways have cost us massively and the thing is, both those defeats were utterly avoidable.

Brilliant description in the Guardian of the young Tranmere ballboy

' He was escorted from the ground for going a bit 'you and yer ma' on the opposition winger who had pushed him.'.

Brighton at home and Brentford away too.

That's the unacceptable one. 2 nil up, cruising and we produce a second half like that?

I've said it for a long time that we can be Jekyll and Hyde at times. Unreal first 45, shite in the second and vice versa.

Yep. 20 odd minutes the other night were hard to watch. It's times like that where Henderson needs to grab the game back by the scruff of the neck.

We seem to lose collective concentration for some reason (which could be mistaken for taking a rest) and usually against decent opposition that results in us having to defend more than we’d like, against good opposition it could easily result in conceding.

Something we have to sort out, especially in cup competitions, but also now we’re at the pointy end of the league.

My gut feeling Docker is that we both win all our remaining games.

 

Having said that we both have two awkward games so it's a chance. 

 

I know every season is different but we're bound to win a tight title race at some point. Off the top of my head, 2002 (Arsenal), 2009 (United) and 2014 and 2019 (City) over the last twenty years. Maybe this will be the year....

Spurs fans had this as a banker Arsenal defeat. Unlucky.

I think I would prefer Spurs to make it..used to be other way around. I'm willing to overlook my hatred of Kane as I cannot stand that Lego faced baby Pep. The BS around these 'young players' and the future etc and the goalkeeper...I'd take Pickford ahead of him...at least for the comedy movements when a ball comes close! 

 

Plus if Arse stay crap for a while that Martinelli might be a useful Squad member, maybe Saka also, although prefer the former.

chelsea still have a game in hand and still 5 points ahead of spurs and arsenal so still pretty safe bet for finishing in the top 4. The cunts have one eye on the cup final and will be taking it relatively easy until then.

Any guesses as to who is on VAR? Ye'll only need one.

Maybe some of the window lickers will need more than one guess.

 

It's Paul Tierney, for the somewhat normal.

Expected. May as well kick off a goal down
