Spurs will start the ball rolling with the Lunch-time game at the Amex and it’s likely they’ll be feeling the pressure.
They need to need win and hopefully for them, they can come away with a good performance and all 3 points otherwise, the Spotlight will be on Mo-Po.
Potentially, one of our hardest games at we face Leicester. This could be where we finally drop points if a well-drilled Foxes turn up. First return too for Brendan Rodgers since his departure back in 2015.
An action-packed Sunday lies ahead with Chelsea at St Marys, the Gunners at home to Bournemouth, Manchester City entertaining Wolves and Manchester United away to Steve Bruce’s Newcastle.
I expect the unexpected to happen this week, most definitely!4th October 2019 at 11:38 am #49238
Reckon the Leicester game is the pick of the bunch for the weekend, two teams who are exceptionally good on the counter, could be a real end-to-end game and great for the neutrals. Can Leicester do it? Maybe, they’ve certainly got a better chance than most I reckon but still feel they’ll fall short. Away loss I reckon!!
As for the rest, a nervy trip down to the coast, the Spuds have the talent to bet the Seagulls for sure, but right now it seems to be the bit between their ears (or the bit between Jan the MAN’S legs) that’s causing all the trouble. An early goal for the Gulls, and who bloody knows what will happen…
Bit of a London Derby Saturday Night, but the atmosphere at the Hammers ground will very likely kill any atmosphere and that will spread down to the field… my pick of the week for a 0-0 draw!!
Sunday is just wins for all the Big Dogs and a surprise defeat for the Cherries… 🙂4th October 2019 at 11:44 am #49241
i see the mighty seaguls stealing the chips and splattering their mess all over the shirts of the spuds players turning tham back to a home kit as they are thrasehed 7-2 🙂4th October 2019 at 12:33 pm #49246Chelsea.manParticipant133 pts
Southampton away is a tricky match most think. and they need the points. so i wouldn’t say it will be a walk over. but after back to back wins in the league and CL ajd on top of that the league cup win. i think the confidence will be high for this match. i would start the same team that started against Brighton. only CHO for Barkley and i will move Mount to the no 10 position. that is where he is at his devastating best. Zouma out for Christensen. i hope we won’t face a banana skin.fingers crossed✌. i would also be backing Liverpool to beat Leicester. at this minute i see Leicester as a threat more than Liverpool.?4th October 2019 at 12:37 pm #49247AnonymousInactive366 pts
The most interesting game for me has to be the Liverpool Leicester one and not because I’m a Liverpool fan. I’m worried about this one. Liverpool’s high line against Leicesters counter attack will be the center of the affair. We’ll have to have our off-side game on point and any mistake with the line and Vardy will punish us. At the other end, maybe it’s time for Leicesters so far impressive defence to be tested, post-Maguire.
I think Liverpool haven’t been great lately and maybe we won’t see an end to this for some time but hopefully the game the other night will be some form of wake-up call that we’ve got to work a little harder and be a little quicker of mind in order to sustain our winning run. I have some interest int he City V Wolves game but is anyone expecting anything but a win for City? They have injuries but they also have the best squad in the game to handle these kinds of problems.
As for wake up calls, when are the Utd owners going to hear their alarm clocks? They’ve been going for years. I didn’t see their game last night but I heard they didn’t manage a single effort on goal. Isn’t it time to do something? How does Woodward still collect a salary? What are his meeting like with his superiors? He must be a world class bullshit artist because his decision making is some of the worst in the game.4th October 2019 at 12:44 pm #492484th October 2019 at 12:52 pm #492494th October 2019 at 12:59 pm #49250AnonymousInactive366 pts
Ya, they’ve spent way more than Liverpool, in order to be mid-table. That’s not going to go down well with any owners who actually don’t have their heads up their asses. I mean, maybe these lads are too busy living the life, burning their inheritances or making money hand over fist somewhere else, to the point that they just don’t care? They definitely are letting their club down in my opinion.4th October 2019 at 1:05 pm #49252newbalanceSpectator190 pts
You have to factor in Man-management too and Manager’s relationship with players. What was Sanchez all about for example? The moment the guy goes through a rough patch with injury, it seems Jose didn’t really want to know.
It’s Jose’s man-management. I don’t the guy and at least from that point of view, Ole’s got his players trying. Jose’s way out rather than spending time with somebody and being engaged with them is to head for a blank cheque.4th October 2019 at 1:15 pm #49256
im talking about this summer and NET figures 😉 but its why woody still has a job they made £600+m
the ownerscouldnt care less how dross the team play as long as share price is OK and they make loads to take out of the club…4th October 2019 at 1:18 pm #49257
Come on Buffy, no need to prove how silly you are, pretty Maggie, W-B and the Whippet cost the best part of 140 million bottle tops… if that’s not spending in your part of the world, can you lend me a fiver?4th October 2019 at 2:09 pm #49266nine nine nineModerator849 pts
United’s problems in the transfer Market is their managerial revolving door since SAF’s departure all of them with different ideas on who should be signed and who should be retained no DOF and Woodward seemingly deeply involved in all the football decisions.
Sanchez is an interesting one he was brilliant at Arsenal lots of Clubs coveted him when United signed him but for all sorts of reasons it didn’t work out. That can happen as it did to come extent with Torres at Chelsea.
I watched United last night and they were toothless up front with not a shot on goal.
It’s difficult to understand United’s strategy in allowing both Lukaku and Sanchez to leave without signing anyone to replace them and trying to put that right in January can be very difficult.4th October 2019 at 4:05 pm #49272AnonymousInactive366 pts
Team I’d play against Leicester :
Trent – Gomez – Van Dijk – Robertson
Milner – Fabinho – Wijnaldum
Salah – Firmino – Mane
I’d look to give Keita 20 mins, regardless of the score. Klopp doesn’t seem to trust Shaqiri anymore but I’d try and give him a few minutes also, were I in charge. Gomez got a hard time for a very rusty performance on Wednesdays night but that game time will have benefited him greatly. I just hope he’s going to be sharp enough for this match as our defence will be tested. It’s not been good enough so far TBH, so a stern test ahead from Vardy and co.
It’d be typical that this is where Perez gets his first goal for them.4th October 2019 at 5:27 pm #49281maverick1973Participant554 pts
Can see the Magpies turning us over,anybody can these days.Foxes vs the Liberoools should be a cracking game.4th October 2019 at 5:52 pm #49287
If Newcastle score against Manchester Utd they won’t lose, the Mancs can’t score twice in a game. They’ll finish mid table4th October 2019 at 6:04 pm #49289sean the sailorParticipant368 pts
I fancy Liverpool tomorrow as we can beat anyone at home but it be a very tough game
Vardy is always a concern and our high line and been to open is a worry
Leicester have some fine players who go under the radar like nidi and perrira. Two excellent players.
We need to be spot on at the back but I think we will nick it4th October 2019 at 6:31 pm #492924th October 2019 at 7:27 pm #49297AdlabParticipant261 pts
We all make bad signings. City Mangala -£40 odd million. Utd, Fred £50m ish., Sanchez somewhere around £4-500,000 a week and still paying.
What matters is the end product.
Still waiting to see Pepe. Another possible expensive buy not performing although v early days.
Tomorrows games the most interesting on paper is Liverpool v Leicester. I think Liverpool will have too much for them. But what is amazing is that you can go the whole season,lose one game and yet not win the league. Meaning a couple of draws can make all the difference for any team!4th October 2019 at 7:42 pm #492984th October 2019 at 8:17 pm #49299AnonymousInactive366 pts
Poch latest comments are not the words of someone who wants to leave, so it seems that it’s nonsense. They obviously have some problems ATM but ya, not Poch.
