    Atalanta (H) Champions League - 25/11/20 - 20:00

    Rest as many players as possible because, let’s be honest, we’ve more or less qualified for the last 16. There’s next door to no chance we lose all three, so player fitness and league games have to be prioritised whenever the opportunity arises. This is a good opportunity to do just that.
  2. That was superb. There might yet be games where the absence of some of our finest costs us points, and it would be ridiculously premature to presume that we'll get to the top of the table and stay there, but this is a truly brilliant squad and if it were to win a second consecutive title in spite of the obstacles in its path, it would be hard to argue that it isn’t the finest in the club's history.

    Man City - Premier League - 8/11/20 - 16:30

    That’ll do. A good result heading into a (for this season) decent period of rest before a must win game against Leicester. Hopefully a few more of our players felt twinges that will force them to pull out of the internationals out of an abundance of caution.

    He started decently, I thought, but you can tell he’s unsure of himself.

    Hahahahahaa Now stop fucking about and get back to our early game form, because that was superb.

    Man City - Premier League - 8/11/20 - 16:30

    Hard to see a way back from here if they score. They’ve been well on top after a really good first half hour.

    Fuck yes! Great penalty.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    As I said after their last meek surrender, it would be considerably more surprising for Everton to make the top four than it would for them to end up desperately trying to stave off relegation. Did Trumpalotti come out with any swivel eyed gems after this one?

    Atalanta (A) - Champions League - 3/11/20 - 20:00

    Fuck yes!! Fucking brilliant.

    Fuck yes! What a player Jota looks like he might be.
  11. Woah, hold on. He’s been brilliant in Europe for them the first season after securing a top four finish. If that’s not Klopp-esque, I don’t know what is. They’re lucky to have him, and he needs to be given time to emulate our CL success.

    Quality will tell in the end though, and I think they’re short. 9 goals conceded doesn’t suggest they’re watertight enough to last the distance playing the dated Mourinho style. Unlike with this season’s tragic, fading Everton side though, top four is certainly possible.

    Not in the least bit concerned about Spurs. They’ve had a very favourable fixture list to start the season with, and I fully expect they’ll have faded by late January at the latest.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see them really struggle this season. Shades of many teams through the years who had a shockingly good start to the season before crumbling spectacularly. I’d be far more surprised to see them in the top four than the bottom three.

    Atalanta (A) - Champions League - 3/11/20 - 20:00

    6 points on the board, a trip to City coming up at the weekend; rest as many players as is necessary to give us the best shot of a result in that game.

    West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

    That’ll do. Another tough week, three more wins. I’d like to see plenty of players rested against Atalanta with City coming up.

    West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

    But there is an agenda.

    You can’t put this down to incompetence. That’s literally impossible.

    Project Big Picture. Again.

    West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

    Absolute must win at the Etihad if this stays the same. I can see us struggling for top four if we lose this and again there.

    West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

    I wonder if we'll see Thiago before Christmas. Bit concerned his is one of those ostensibly minor injuries that end up lasting half a season.

    Are Chelsea looking good? I’m a bit concerned about them since the fates decided that we’d suffer injury to a key player in every game from now on.
