Utd will beat Juve abd city4th November 2018 at 8:28 pm #27902
Brian – I’m not looking for answers. We’re performing (points wise) brilliantly. Continuing to punch well above our weight. However I agree spending would’ve made a difference. What I was responding to was adlab saying KDB is out again, how would spurs cope without Kane? We’ve had many matches without Kane and also more than half of our first team so I extended the question to how would city cope without all those players, not just KDB.4th November 2018 at 8:53 pm #27903

Paxton…I guess it is one of those “what if” question that has no answer to it, we fans like to dream up these points I have been guilty myself in the past and I try and keep to reality now. History, I forget player / team comparison I can never understand. The one thing I sometimes think about is if a player like say Kane,or Augerro or Hazard would be any better in another team or you could say. What player would you like to see in your current team that would make a difference. All interesting stuff Paxton, like your post4th November 2018 at 9:02 pm #27905

Spurs have played a lot without Kane overvlast two seasons with son staring upfront. They haven’t lost many games from what I can remember
You see today what a difference hazard makes to Chelsea. Few seasons ago Liverpool lost mane for a while and we drastically went down hill
I think the point is city can bring in top top quality to replace kdb in Bernardo Silva. Liverpool would find difficult to replace any of the top 3 even though Shaqiri is an option now4th November 2018 at 9:04 pm #27906
Agree Sean.5th November 2018 at 6:33 am #27909
Sean @8:02pm haha, we’ve literally got probably the two hardest fixtures in world football in our next two games! I’ve no idea where you get all your faith in Utd winning. We’re scraping past teams at the moment. These two are on another level5th November 2018 at 6:45 am #27910

All I’m going to say is if “Lad’s, it’s only Tottenham!” can go to Maureen’s house and spank his bottom I only fear for his ability to sit-down after visits to Turin and Manchester… 🙂5th November 2018 at 10:20 am #27911
Sean, you now predict a United win no matter who the opponent. 🙂
If United play like they did in the first half v Bournemouth they will get well and truly stuffed in both games but I wouldn’t put it beyond Mourinho being able to dig a result out in those games but it won’t be pretty. 🙂5th November 2018 at 1:58 pm #27912

999…well after every Chelsea win, and there have been a lot of them, you have said ‘Another 3 very important points towards hopefully a top 4 place and getting back into the Champions League!’
With the start you’ve had this season a top 4 place ought to be the very least of your ambitions. While I accept finishing higher than City might be taking optimism a touch too far, you are currently the 2nd best side in the country, so stop trying to kid us that 4th place is all you’re after! 😂😂5th November 2018 at 3:18 pm #27915
Hightown, bit different mate and to be fair I’m speaking honestly about my own team.
The Chelsea objective this season is to get back into the CL by finishing in the top 4 or by winning the EL.
Tbh I’ve been suprised how well we’ve started especially as we are playing a different style of football under a new Manager who has been at the club less than 4 months versus his counterparts who now with the exception of Emery know the PL over 2/3 years plus.
Chelsea are still short of a reliable striker if Morata can be that player I wouldn’t rule Chelsea out of finishing in 2nd place but I just don’t think Chelsea or anyone else will be good enough to catch this City team just yet and even should Chelsea ultimately be proven good enough to finish 2nd it’s still only a place in the top 4 which is the original objective. Which is why I honestly say another 3 points towards finishing in the top 4 and even with the good start Chelsea are still only 4 points above Arsenal so even reclaiming a top 4 spot won’t be easy with so many points still to play for. Also a top 4 place doesn’t mean 4th place but I would settle for 4th place now if it was on offer.😊5th November 2018 at 3:30 pm #27918
Derby’s can be strange and unpredictable….utd are capable of punishing anybody ..5th November 2018 at 5:29 pm #27919
City boy, good point about derbies and I think that’s a problem for the London club’s there are just too many London derbies.5th November 2018 at 7:25 pm #27921
Wasplicker-While United have the ability and quality to beat anybody on their day,like 27 says,if United play like they have been playing so far,especially in the 1st half,we will get spanked.6th November 2018 at 1:50 pm #27937
Can you believe it…. Anthony Taylor to referee the derby! He’s a Utd supporter. Mind you I do believe it. Not me being paranoid either. Check him out if you dont believe it6th November 2018 at 1:55 pm #27938
