Ferguson more or less dictated to the PL the refs he didn't want in charge of their games, it's about time something went our way in this regard.

Interesting stat just posted on the Beeb:
"Reds are only two points short of their return in the corresponding fixtures in 2019-20."

Given our fixture list to date, seems were travelling pretty fucking well!

Joint top after 9 games having played Arsenal & Leicester at home and Chelsea, Everton & Citeh away.

Tough opening set of fixtures combined with a horrific run of injuries and players missing due to COVID.

Squad is resilient. We'll kick on in December. Wolves and Spurs are the toughest two games on paper until the New Year

Spurs play Chelsea next week too, which gives us a chance to put some daylight ahead of the chasing pack. Assuming we can overcome the mighty Brighton first.

Spurs have a tricky few weeks: Chelsea, Arsenal, us and Leicester in the next month, I guess how they come through those games will tell us how seriously they can challenge.

We have a good run of fixtures in the run up to new year, well capable of winning them all. Time to get the red machine up to full speed.

This is the part of the season (no international breaks) where we kicked in and blew everyone else away last season.

Looks a good run of games, and the team should be able to find a bit of rhythm. It's not as if we have been 'miles off it' anyway this season. We've already been in decent form.

Spurs at home December 16th, midweek game, will be a big one. Win the next three and put them right under pressure coming to our place.

it’s gonna be a massive game.. feels a bit like the leicester game over Christmas last year- I remember looking at that a few weeks beforehand..

Hopefully we’ll brush spurs aside the way we did to leicester that time!

The difference between us and Spurs is that they are in the middle of a likely unsustainable hot streak, where as we're nowhere near our peak due to injuries and should only get better as we get players back.

Once they revert somewhat to the mean (and pick up a few injuries) I'd expect them to fall away.

We'll see!

True, but as we saw with Leicester in their winning season, a winning streak installs a lot of confidence in a team, and sometimes they just keep winning. Hopefully tho, Spurs will do as Everton did and crumble under the pressure of being the earlier league leaders.

That was a freak season for a few reasons:

1) Everyone was absolutely shit (partially true this season I guess but not us!)
2) Leicester barely had any injuries to key players all season (could happen to Spurs but unlikely given the schedule)
3) Spurs are massive bottlers

Kane must be due his annual ankle injury any time soon.

One thing with Mourinho he does know how to get a team to win, it's usually ugly, seige mentality and burns players out with the approach but he has that ability.

Thankfully your point 3 should cover that.

I don't know. Spurs are due a trophy some time and things could come together for them this season. Like him or loath him Mourinho is a serial winner and Spurs have a pretty tasty squad at the moment. I wouldn't bet against them picking up some silverware by the end of the season. Whether that's the EPL or not is another matter, as that's the hardest of the lot to win but who knows?

No one is due anything IMO. You've got to earn it. If they are good enough to do that fair play to them, but I doubt it. They've got half a chance in the Carabao Cup, let's see how they get on there

The ingredients are all there for someone other than Liverpool or City to have a chance of winning it this season.

If Spurs can keep more of their best players on the pitch than the others, then they’re as well placed as anyone.

I was dreading seeing a front line of Son, Kane, Bale. But Bale coming in hasn't yet really added much. So it's the same old story with everything going through Kane and the Korean Vardy benefiting with the goals. Straightforward tactics to cut that off really, a bit like how we did with the English Vardy.

Spurs have a really tough run of games coming until the end of the year, harder than ours on the face of it. If they want to win the League they will need to perform in the same way as we have over the initial 9 games against similarly tough opponents.

They along with Chelsea are definitely in contention, we will just need to see if they can keep their levels high enough.

They are due a trophy soon in the sense that they are doing the right things to earn one. They have assembled a good squad, of the right sort of age and have been relatively competitive for a number of seasons now (under two good managers).

I'm not saying I have them as favourites to win the league rather, that they are in that mix of teams which can realistically compete for the cups and be up at the pointy end of the table. In a season as mad as this one, any team in that position could find themselves in place to pick up the pieces should the usual suspects under perform.

Still don't think we'll win it this year, and if that's the case I'm not sure I'll have the motivation to keep following the game as I have. The continual tweaking of the rules to make the sport progressively worse, the lack of spontaneity caused by VAR, the seemingly worsening quality of football punditry.. sure, I'm in a downer over this result, but I think it's more or a general sentiment that's building.

Makes us sound like Citeh fans but I get your point.




Can we all finally agree going into a season with 6.5 defenders was completely fucking stupid?

It's a fucking pantomime, and doesn't at all resemble the game we all fell in love with. If I could flick a switch and walk away, find something better to do, I would. But I can't.

I hate what it's become. I was in favour of VAR and thought it worked well in that World Cup. We couldn't have envisaged what it would become but clearly I was wrong to be in favour. It's completely ruining the game.

Me too . We should’ve known you can always rely on the Prem to fuck anything up totally.
