    honstly.. I think we will crush spurs.

    2-3 goals in the first half, and them out of it by half time..

    Ericksen may get one back, but that will be about it.

    A combination of their last minute winners, and kanes form has flattered them this season, when overall I dont think they have improved much.

    Reality will come back though on the weekend.. we are high on confidence, and playing very well.. cazorla, walcott, ozil, sanchez, giroud - will just be to strong for them, and I fully expect a flurry of chances for us in the first half.

    Legit don't know what I'd do if we got banged 5-3 by Spurs or something. They'd never in their history stop talking about it. We need to be cool and compact just as we were at City and I pray that Wenger doesn't throw Gabriel into the starting line up or something (I'm sure he won't though). Spurs are noticeably defending better as well, hmm tough call this one.

    They've still got the likes of Valencia, Sakho and Song etc to do some damage to you guys. I wouldn't be too confident but yeah I do think you'd win also. I remember when they were in the top for not so long ago and Downing said they were aiming for Europe...now they're 8th I think it is. That changed.

    Really? I always thought it was the other way round. No I don't think QPR will get anything at all, just can't see it. Kudos if you're right though.
    If you play like the way you did against City then you'll crush Spurs.

    We've got Di Maria, RVP, Rooney, Mata to do some damage to them plus we have De Gea in goal :ahee:. They're concentrating more on the FA cup rather than the league (iirc Big Sam said this). I think they'll comfortably finish in the top 10.

    Meh one can hope. Everything points to an 8-0 win for Southampton.

    Imagine if they'd suffered the dross that was Eboue, Gervinho, Senderos etc :eek:
    Not even mentioning Squillaci, Djourou etc

    Don't see us keeping a clean sheet but if we do then pwhaaarr you know Ospina is something. Kane or Erikson to get a scummy goal, no not even. I bet the goal will be a good one, from like a free kick or something right outside the box.

    It's important to start the game well, not just create chances but finish them. If we've still got the lead in the dying 10 minutes of the game or something and it's by only a one goal margin then please by all means, park the flipping bus idec. I won't be happy with a draw tbh (dependant on how other teams around us do though)

    Just looked at the fixtures and realised Man utd have West Ham away next which could be tricky but on the other hand Soton have a managerless and already crap QPR away next..after their loss to Swansea you reckon they'd go all out and demolish them. **** me top four might have to wait another week :facepalm:
    Eriksen will score an 85th minute free kick after we bring on Flamini and he gets an instant yellow. Kane will score a rebounded toe punt from the edge of the 6 yard box, and everyone will go mad as if he is the next Bale.

    I want us to start well, but park the bus most of the game. Just do what we did against City - force them out wide, don't let them run through the centre, two banks of 4 with Coq inbetween.

    I would rather beat Chelsea at home than beat Spurs. We know the Spuds are inferior, but beating Mourinho trumps all.

    Not beating Spurs would be disastrous tbh. It has to be done.
    Beating Maureen in what turns out to be decisive points to their title hopes would be the absolute king though. *Orgasms*

    A draw at WHL would not be disastrous, as long as we don't lose, we can retain our momentum. Imagine beating the Special (Needs) One and then they lose to City by 1 point. It would be amazing.

    You are a United fan and your name is ****ging off one of your own players. One of the more important ones for you as well. I am pretty sure you lot were creaming yourselves after beating Cambridge in a replay.

    Check my post history, I certainly wasn't. With regards to your first point, I'm a music fan but I don't like AC/DC.

    We have a much superior goal difference to City. So you're expecting City to start winning by 3 goal+ scorelines and for Chelsea not to do that when Chelsea have been scoring 2.5 goals a game.

    I always really wanted klopp to come to arsenal, but this year has just really tainted things..

    We know the good about him - how well he can lead a team, and that he can and probably would achieve great things with arsenal..

    But now we have seen how he deals with a collapse, and its been a disaster.. kind of feel like he is far to much of a risk now. and even if he does well to start with... I would always be worried that this would happen..

    I think he is a great manager in a given environment, as you suggest however. it has proven to be the case (so far) that he cannot steer a ship in a storm towards stability. Mentally, his players are unsettled. Simple 5 yard passes going astray and the like. The mental aspect in sport is so important and to me he seems like the blood, guts and fire type in the dressing room. Which of course, unless you are Sir Alex, this approach tends to burn out within a few seasons unless you sell your players that cannot get motivated anymore and seamlessly integrate a new batch (e.g. Southampton).

    I still think the players are the ones I am quite appalled at though, someone like Hummels for example that seems to have World Cup hangover big time... much like Mertesacker did. I have reservations about Hummels because even when he was playing well I felt that there always seemed to be one mistake in him to be capitalised upon.
    Only, Mertesacker cannot take that approach anymore as he'll be dropped in a flash. He is more dispensable now that we have younger players snapping at his place. Gundogan has somehow gotten fat...

    Wenger uses simulation/data analysis programmes to decide whether to drop a player or not, so it is not really the case that players can continue just messing up and continuing playing in the team.
