I can't believe Newcastle are 4 points off 5th

It's mental. 5th to 14th are all interchangeable, really. There's actually a chance Newcastle could finish 5th and Man Utd end up 14th. Just insane.

All this does is almost guarantee burnley will be in the epl next season....... fffuuuuucckkkk what a shitty, boring arse team that needs to be relegated. Having said that i think 40 points might not be enough this season, its going to be tight!

Burnleys style of football is like pulling teeth

 

their players look exausted and miserable at times following their army like orders

They may finish the game exhausted, but aren't they supposed to?  If a player looks like he hasn't been trying, it's probably because he hasn't been trying.

 

As for miserable, there isn't a man in the side who hasn't signed at least 2 contracts with Burnley.  They don't want to leave, that's why the average age is increasing,

If, like me, you’re worried about the gap closing then console yourself with the fact that there’s almost as many points between us in 3rd and Man Utd in 5th as between Man Utd and bottom club Norwich!

What the hell was Pickford doing for that late Newcastle equalizer? 

 

Seemed to be having a toddler tantrum while his team were trying to defend - and then keeping goal in the back of his net. Totally unprofessional.

 

England keeper?! :blink:

 

There are surely at least 4-5 better English keepers on current form?

Good result for us for sure! But yes Burnley need to **** off. They've been stinking the PL out for too long.

Had a feeling Burnley would get something at Old Trafford. What I was getting at with my comment is that I think at the minute the league lacks many genuinely good sides. I was exaggerating (a little) with 'awful' (I raise you that West Ham performance earlier) but I just think there aren't actually many good teams at the minute. You've got three of our 'big six' managed by people who frankly haven't got anywhere near the credentials for such jobs, now it's too early to write Arteta off but if you were being cynical you would say this is those three clubs all putting somebody in charge that the fans will all be more lenient with = buys them time. Manchester United are not a good team. Nobody will convince me they are. They have some very good players, some average, some frankly bottom half standard, but they're individually nowhere near what they could be, and their manager's CV would be lucky to land him the Preston job.

 

What Liverpool are doing reflects very well on them as a team, and make no mistake, they are the best team in the world and I'd be very surprised if they aren't lifting their 7th Champions League this season as well as the Premier League, but the absolute lack of challenge they seem to have is embarrassing. Napoli have taken more points off Liverpool this season than the entire Premier League. 21 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats. It's remarkable but if that was PSG people would be calling it a farce. You can't have it both ways.

 

What happened last year in Europe was a bit weird - are people going to sit there and claim Tottenham were the second best team in Europe last season? That was the luckiest run to the final I've seen since Chelsea and Di Matteo (and in fact I think it was even luckier). They were barely top ten for me. Liverpool, as stated, best team in the world, Manchester City - also an exceptional team but have paid the price for not buying adequate cover in defence.

 

What's happening in football's really a bit strange at the minute. I can't really put my finger on it. I don't really think the other leagues are particularly strong either. I think it's fundamentally a bit broken to be honest.

Just how bad was Maguire?  We really did  Mug Manure.

 

Beaten for Burnley’s first goal, probably both.  It’s almost criminal what they’ve done to him, not only playing to his weaknesses, but doubling down to install him as captain when he is not the type.  He isn't wired to be the player answerable for United-as-shitshow.  He’s taken the weight of the world upon himself in a team of players who don’t give a damn, and seems more careworn with every interview.

 

Their forum has been understanding … until today.

The next lot of games includes:

 

United vs. Wolves

Spurs vs. Man City

Palace vs. Sheff Utd
 

If we can avoid defeat to Chelsea (obviously we should be aiming to win it, especially at home), then we’ll be gaining on someone.

I wonder if Roy Keane still thinks Wally needs another year at least! I'm really looking forward to playing them at OT next weekend.

 

We have both Boly and Jota back fully fit now apparently which is a great boost. Hopefully Podence over the line soon too.

Matic was beaten in the air quite comfortably before it landed at Woods feet. Yet not one word about how 6'5 Nemanja Matic didn't win his header. 

 

At this point Maguire is hust being scapegoated.

But it works and they stay up most years, average age of the team is 30 plus though so how long can they keep it up.

 

Waiting patiently for the day Sean Dyche is out if this league. Occasionally they will produce decent stuff like their winner against us and Jay Rod goal last night but most of the time they play horrible route 1 garbage. Percentage football 101. 

 

Im usually not snobby about how teams play but when you see lower league teams like Brentford and Fulham and Leeds play progressive innovative football with coaches who have foward thinking ideas, you wonder what the **** Sean Dyche does with his time and the millions they earn by being a Premier League  team.

 

Get Burnley in the bin and Dyche out of the league.

Anyone else think 40 points might not be enough to stay up this season? The teams across the league all look capable of picking up points. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a record points tally for a relegated side.

14 games to go with 14 points ahead of Utd, Wolves and Spurs in that top 4 race :scarf:

 

 

28 points from our remaining 14 GUARANTEES Champions League for us but realistically if we just win half our games that should do it comfortably looking at the form of the chasing pack.

Almost time to start counting down lads! Great days and so much to look forward to.

There is no way Pickford is the best English keeper.

I mean, teams like Burnley play like Burnley because if they don't there's a very good chance they end up like Norwich or Aston Villa (only reason Villa aren't where Norwich are is Grealish). It's no fun playing them but I don't begrudge their playstyle because it's the one thing keeping them in this league.

If we win our next two games (Chelsea and Wolves) Top 4 is as good as done.

 

Somehow Chelsea are favourites at the  bookies to win against us. :/
