    Banjo-United should have dropped 2 points yesterday,fair and square mate.BHA were brilliant @ times,especially their No=11-Knockaert,what a terrific player!.
    Having seen the highlists of the Spurs game,must say your boys looked lethargic too,needless to say neither will be challenging for the title.Ours will be over after the next 2 games away to Watford and Le Arse.

    Arsenal have just scored a pen!

    That is heartbreaking for Burnley.

    Elsewhere, Everton are a real shambles at the mo. Southampton aren’t that good but that thrashing says more about the Toffees. No doubt, they’ll be up for our match in a few weeks time.

    Gutted for Burnley (had to pop in the office for a couple of hours.. on a Sunday.. WTF!!!), was it a “real” one or an “Arsenal” one? 🙂

    Toffee’s look like they’re in big trouble…

    Seen this Knockheart lad a few times this season, BHA are going to have their work cut out to keep him for any length of time.

    Only seen the highlights about the Spuds game, we never looked at the races from what I saw, happy to grab a point in the end. Be glad to see the end of November, seen some great performances and then a few not so great performances. Hopefully we can go on one of our “runs” now, get a rhythm going. Pity we’ll be missing Waananayayammaana and Alldlelrelelffwlerrield unitl the New Year, could really do with them around. At least Lamamlalalalalala is back! 🙂

    Good to listen to both sets of Managers post-match. Guardiola recognized and praised the account delivered from the Terriers and knows that turnaround was no walk in the park. He acknowledges there’s likely to be more of that in future games and is also prepared for an eventual first defeat. His key message is how is City team responds from adversity.

    It boils down to what the scoreline is after 90s minutes and in spite of everything Huddersfield gave, it was always going to be a huge task to uphold whatever lead they had or containing Man City on an even keel. Maybe some hope out there for opposition teams, but this blue team of Manchester simply so far is unstoppable.

    Honestly can’t see anyone stopping the Man City Juggernaut anytime soon, Even with that little bit of luck for Sterling’s Goal they still had enough I believe to have took the Three points anyway. Everton I’m afraid are looking real relegation fodder and they need to sort their Managerial issues pretty quickly, Unsworth isn’t the answer and that’s not His fault being drafted in to plug the Holes left by Koeman. Also I believe Jordan Pickford has changed His name by Deed Poll to Jordan Pickthatoneout :).

    Lol, can’t help but be a little mischievous when Kenwright to be removed was called in by one of the callers on the phone-in tonight 😀

    It was more the way it was aired, but he definitely had a valid point.

    Yep, Unsworth is definitely not the answer and I agree with one of the other callers calling out for a clean sweep which is what they need.

    I may have jinxed it now as they’ll probably end up picking up a draw when they meet us soon at Anfield, hahaha 🙂 🙂

    Just listened to a caller on the local phone in who actually started Crying about the Blues plight, He said the last time He cried was when Alan Ball left to join Arsenal back in 1974 but I think there will be more Tears cried if they don’t get their House sorted out.

    Lol, hahaha 😀

    I did genuinely read recently the 999 number used frequently from East London concerning West Ham – can’t believe any human being would stretch as far as that.

    I must say being a Liverpool supporter, I’ve been there and although poking a bit of fun at others, I admittedly split hairs than many when things are going well. The most darkest times was when we had Hicks and Gillette. That was scary because I just believe they would never budge.

    I feel for the Everton fans they had an optimistic Summer albeit they failed to recruit in a couple of crucial areas and Evertonian’s have had all their dreams crushed.

    Everton are in a really tough place currently and Unsworth whose heart and soul are in the club isn’t the managerial answer either short or medium term.

    I think Everton will turn things around they still have most if not all of the Lukaku money to spend and if they get their managerial appointment right they should be more than OK.

    I think Everton should go all out for Silva he clearly wants to go there and he is the best of all of the potential Everton targets mentioned.

    Everton have been in the top division consistently for more years than all of the top clubs bar Arsenal hopefully Everton can maintain that record but it starts with getting the right Manager in and quickly.

    Why should ‘hopefully Everton maintain that record’, 999? If they are one of the 3 worst teams in the league, they deserve to go. I wouldn’t feel sorry for them any more than Palace, Stoke or Swansea.

    Hightown, I don’t wish Ill on any club mate and Everton are an historic club who have been in the top division since the 30’s and personally I would like to see them stay there because of that even though they stuffed us up in the created market not once but twice.?

    But you’re right if they go down they will deserve to go down. I think they will probably be ok though. We’ll see. Cheers 999

    ps: Worryingly Everton will appoint a new Manager shortly and there may well be a bit of new Manager bounce just in time for Chelsea playing them on the 23/12 and Liverpool playing them on the 10/12 too. Let’s hope we’ve both got enough to successfully come through those games and any potential new Manager bounce.

    Hightown, good point.

    To be fair, I was only having a laugh given they are our Merseyside rivals. But on the pitch, they have been awful – look at Ashley Williams for instance.

    Steve Claridge made almost the same point during yesterday’s commentary on 5 live. In my view, there’s teams that don’t deserve to be in the top flight or their time is up. I’m not saying Everton is one of them, but on the flip side of this coin, Huddersfield have been a breath of fresh air, so maybe next summer, we’ll see more new blood from the Championship come in and mix it up with the big boys making the PL even more exciting.

    If you ain’t good enough, that’s what happens… pure and simple. It would be a shame, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. No club should expect “favors” due to history…

    According to latest reports Everton look set to appoint Big Sam? Who imo will probably dig them out of their current hole but I’m not sure BS is the man to take Everton to where they are looking to go.

    BS wouldn’t have been my choice were I an Evertonian but needs must and Everton need to escape the spectre of relegation first and foremost.

    In the short term though potentially bad news for both Liverpool and Chelsea who play Everton on the 10/12 and 23/12 respectively both hoping to avoid any new Manager bounce.

    Everton will avoid relegation with Alerdyce as manager as sure as eggs are eggs. It’s the club’s arround them that should be concerned. Then next summer they should perhaps try and get a manager who plays more progressive football.
