Crystal Palace (A) - Sun 23rd Jan 2022 (2:00pm)

Recommended Posts

It’s going to be a really hard game today. I think it would be a massive stretch to say we’d have any more than a 5% chance of winning the league even if we take maximum points from the games in hand, but I’ll take that over nothing any day of the week.

We can talk about those obvious cheating scumbags till we’re sky blue in the face but we would be really on their tales but for some abject moments and dropping points from winning positions. Ref decisions also.

Absolutely got to win this one. I think  first place is gone but it doesn't mean we shouldn't breathe down cities neck all the way.

It would not be a huge surprise if we beat Palace today, Leeds and City away. That would leave 3 points between the teams for the remaining 14 games. 

City have been on a great run but their form is definitely on the slide. In their last 4 league games, they have struggled to beat Brentford, Arsenal and Chelsea and drew with Southampton yesterday. 

 

After the Cardiff game, it looks like we will have a full squad to choose from (hopefully haven't jinxed that). 

The game at the Etihad is massive but it is not "gone" imo. 

 

15/2 - not a bad bet.

Yes but the other way of looking at it is their financial cheating has allowed them to spend way above their station on players such that they havent had their own abject moments in sufficient quantities.

Easy for you to say DS.

Would you say Man City will get to 90 pts?

 

That is just 33 from their remaining 15 games...a mere 2.2 a game....

 

If they do we can only afford to drop a mere 6 pts in our last 17 games for it to end 90 each.

 

If they get 91 then we can only drop 5, 92 means just 4....

 

I just can't see it - its a ridiculously big ask for us and it needs their form to fall off a cliff.

Ox in the front three? Do hope it's Jones instead. Taki must have shit on Klopp's cornflakes. 

It won't be Jones because he and Jota both play on the left of the front 3.

 

We tried Jota on the right and he was shit. Twice.

Hopefully Hendo plays like he did in the second half v Arsenal and not the first.

 

Both Jonesy and Fab played great the other night, we need more of the same here.

 

Take your chances boys.
