The encouraging thing is that bar Chelsea earlier in the season, all of their defeats have come against teams that nobody would've expected them to drop points to.
I was going to make that point in response to your first sentence but you already said it yourself

I'm not trying to play down their achievements,. I just think there's been exceptional circumstances around their fixtures. They've already lost four games and will lose more.
jammy fuckers, Arsenal were cruising until both their CB's got injured. Everton put on a good performance to be fair and Chelsea was just an embarrassment.

Yeah I thought Everton played well, silly foul just before halftime ..1 nil, then they have to chase which they did well, and the get caught towards the end of the game

He's a compulsive winner. He got a lot of stick in his first season for playing "tippy tappy" football and he was being laughed at for asking his defenders and goalkeeper to play from the back. Some even said that it would never work here.

I'd have loved him here and he would have fitted greatly as well.

Peps alright but players he had there already and squad he has now, blank cheque to buy whomever, blank cheque for wages. Really and truly he should be winning the league. 400 odd million more net spent over last 5 years than us... Fuck off!

But the narrative that Klopp hasn't won a trophy is far better for the media (and dumbass fans) to sink their teeth into.

I'm generally not one to repeat conversations I've had with actual people on here, but I'll make an excepting for this one...

A Chelsea supporting colleague at work yesterday actually said he'd rather lose 6 0 to City than have us top of the league.

Same Chelsea fan here said the same to me, he's a season ticket holder but would rather see his side get spanked than us win the league.

The game the other day said it all

Aguero comes off for Jesus . De Bruyne for Mahrez and finally Fernandinho for David Silva

Financial doping at its best , got to say the wages must be keeping them all happy

But Pep does get them playing great football compared to most. Easy though when yuu got that talent at your disposal

That's the thing, and for the last years, if they needed someone they bought him, no issues. I think VVD is the only one they missed out on, only for them to get Laporte instead.

We are only now getting to that place that we can get in our targets on a regular basis.

His name is Josep "Pep" Guardiola Sala.

Pep is probably what his nanna called him, how did that stick
