  1. This game came at the perfect moment. Nothing quite like sticking a foot out and tripping up Spurs. And it's made even better by the salty tears of Danny Murphy and Jermaine Jenas.
  2. I wouldn't expect anything else - the man is a Grade 'A' D******d. But then, that's something I always liked about him - the point scoring. However, no petty badge pointing/thumping and vengeance missions will reduce the pain he'll feel if when we go and win the title in a few weeks time. That will eat him up inside and I'm not going to lie - part of me will really enjoy that.
  3. Despite doing my very best to cowardly avoid all football media for the last 36 hours, it doesn't feel anywhere near as "doomsday" as it felt on Sunday afternoon. Given the fixtures left for both teams, it's not unfeasible that we'll win our home games, although that Southampton fixture has a whiff of Shane Long turning up. As for them, Mourinho/United have it in them to deny Spurs two or all three points and that'll probably do it for us. And going through this wobble will mean more if/when we cross the line first. Also, this will act as a reminder to those in important positions that the maximum has been rung out of this squad and reinforcements are definitely required in the summer. I can't see a careless repeat of Summer 2007 or 2010 happening this time around.
  4. If we win our home games and get a point from either one of Goodison or the Hawthorns - then we're there with one just slip up from Spurs. That's the best I can do for optimism.
  5. League wise, we're home against Southampton next (25th), Spurs are then away against Palace on the following night. We just have to put the pressure back on them, and then hope they slip up. Once might be fatal.
  6. Conte needs to find a formula for the next six games. And we need someone up front who isn't a complete liability. If not, we're f**ked.
  7. Just need a goal for the momemtum to change.
  8. Liability.
  9. Not over by any stretch, but so much was wrong about that first half. Next 45 minutes can win or lose the title for us. It's really looking that way.
  10. We can't afford to drop a point before they do.
  11. Phew! Massive win!
  12. Our season (and my sanity) lives or dies on Costa finding some proper form. If we win and he scores against City then I think we'll go all the way.
  13. I like that! Would be nice to have a more general version as well.
  14. People outside the club are trying to make out that the league is a done deal, but we're two bad results away from falling back into the pack. It might be a crazy thing to say after this amazing run we've been on, but I feel like I need to see a convincing performance as well as a win from us today - Hazard running the show and a double for Costa will do nicely.
  15. Good. Needed that.
