What a spineless, shit team.

Funny, didn't think that'd be an "Americanism" as it used so, so commonly over here.

Thats not changed too much. They beat Fulham and thats 6 points. We then need Watford to stop them winning. And of course its all down to Anfield. If Liverpool dont do us a favour, well at least they should hand the title back to City (presuming the 0-0 stays as a draw).

I'm deadly serious about this - Arsenal are fucking shit. We absolutely, the way we are moving forward this second half of the season, should target Arsenal next season.
There's absolutely no reason we can't finish above them. They are shit.

Chelsea is the weakling of the top 6. With Hazard departing, that's the team we can pass for 6th.
18 Posted 24/04/2019 at 20:54:54
Arsenal are one of those teams a bit like United where they are, or rather have been for a good few years, starting to to lose their identity.
They lost massive players like Henry, Bergkamp, Viera, Ljungberg, Keown ect and as time wore on the acceptance that Wenger couldnt replicate those years was dawned upon, you are now left with a team of average to decent misfits.
United are the same since the departure of Ferguson in 2013 its only gone one way.
At Everton we never really had that type of dynasty but we lost the solidity that Moyes and his buys brought us, but maybe now with this current side and Marco Silva at the helm, showing some positive signs, maybe just maybe we can start rocking the boats of 5th and 6th place sooner rather than later.?

HOW SWEET IT IS!

No way Watford will be Top 6. I can't see that. They're a carthorse team.
Wolves have real talent, buy well, and have a fucking great (and I mean GREAT) coach in my opinion. That dude, the Holy Spirit, has them playing divine football.
Couldn't help myself with the pun, but the point is valid. It's open, free-flowing football and they don't leak goals.
I always think it's important to see how the "smaller" clubs do in year two of the Premier League, so time will tell. But Wolves have it all going on at the moment.
Jim Bennings -
Those "bigger" teams are really starting to waver. Next season is a really big season. We have to get Europe and pop into that Top 6.

Be interesting to see the possession stats, considering Man U were at home, it was all City!

Derek, yeah, their in separate rooms already.
Anyone got an industrial strength lemon so I can get this smile off my face?
66 Posted 24/04/2019 at 22:07:14
But made up the RS, are pegged back again. Both have three marathons ahead, like we do, and our chances of Europa, are now even slimmer, but theres still a chance, if we start by beating Palace.
The RS txts tonight didnt come in and long may it last, hopefully justice and merit will prevail over the next 3 weeks, we qualify for the Europa, City win the title, Barca do the business, as well.
That would be a fine end to this season. We live in hope eternal.

The media do really hate us as it's full of RS, I pray City win the league as they are the better team and haven't had anywhere near the luck the RS have.
70 Posted 24/04/2019 at 22:12:30
71 Posted 24/04/2019 at 22:14:01
Wait until Barca have beaten them and it becomes mathematically impossible for them to win the League.
Then make their lives completely miserable
72 Posted 24/04/2019 at 22:14:18
No? ok, I better join yous all. Fecking brilliant, City. Fecking brilliant. Mind you, we put 4 past United, City only 2.

Steve, I hope youre wrong mate, but could just imagine the stick that Benitez would get if Newcastle turned them over, because Im sure theyd hound him out of his Wirral home?

Can you really imagine a professional footballer knocking in an own goal, potentially sabotaging his (and his team mates) efforts over a whole season to make the Europa League just so he can appease the child in him that supported Liverpool?
You can really imagine that??

I have a sneaking suspicion they may get past Barca over 2 legs. I'm thinking 3-1 to Barca in the first leg the. 2-0 to the shite at Mordor. Then I can see Leicester sneaking a draw at Man City with David Brent in charge. I hope to God I'm wrong but I'm not saying a word to any of them until the season is over.
94 Posted 24/04/2019 at 23:36:41
We have to win all three remaining games. I don't think even two wins and a draw will do it. That would see us on 56 points, and I think Wolves will finish on 57.
Win out. Not win "owt", but win out. We have to, or there will be no Europe for Everton in my opinion.
95 Posted 24/04/2019 at 23:41:24
Wolves might (?) get a point against the rs. I can't see City losing any of their games. The Leicester game will see a Leicester on the beach already. They're not getting 7th with their remaining schedule. When they play City, they'll be going through the motions waiting for next season.
96 Posted 24/04/2019 at 23:44:45
97 Posted 25/04/2019 at 05:36:37
With Fernandinho being carted off and De Bruyne injured, the last thing City want is a ban for David Silva. It would really damage them.
I couldn't agree more with your point but, on this occasion, let's do what everyone else has been doing for years. Let's turn a blind eye on this one for now... Then, we can moan like fuck about it at the end of the season!
98 Posted 25/04/2019 at 06:21:28
99 Posted 25/04/2019 at 10:07:24
Liverpool could score five or six against Huddersfield tomorrow night and reduce the goal difference. When you fight the devil, you have to consider everything!!!
100 Posted 25/04/2019 at 10:35:33
Shithouse FA yet again taking the easy way out. It makes you sick.
I understand what Darren means when he says we don't want Silva banned, but come on, it's definitely one rule for the so-called top six teams and another rule for the rest.
101 Posted 25/04/2019 at 11:33:37
Burnley with two big centre forwards cause a lot of teams problems and Vardy playing on the shoulder of the last defender is always a dangerous opponent. But Newcastle and Wolves are no pushovers. So still very much all to play for.
I just hope City beat Burnley and Leicester, and Liverpool draw or, better still, lose to Newcastle. That would make the last day of the season not that important. But, knowing the other lot, this will go down to the last minute of the last game.
102 Posted 25/04/2019 at 13:51:45
"Paul Pogba said after the Everton game things got quite heated between the players in the dressing room. What? They threw their hair gel at each other?!"
103 Posted 25/04/2019 at 14:23:19
104 Posted 26/04/2019 at 18:25:17
Just seen Huddersfield are 33/1 to win at Mordor. It probably reflects their chances, but I don't remember any Premier League team being offered at odds that high.
Could be a bit of fun on here tonight if they stick 11 men behind the ball, fight for their lives and really test RS Hors d'Oeuvres.
105 Posted 26/04/2019 at 22:15:04
106 Posted 26/04/2019 at 22:27:22
Come on, Man City.
107 Posted 26/04/2019 at 23:56:41
108 Posted 26/04/2019 at 00:03:56
Also, whilst I believe the RS will get maximum points, they kick off in Geordie land at 8:00 next Saturday night. I can imagine that may be an atmosphere! That's possibly the trickiest fixture either team have between them.
