Premier League Thread 2019/20

I don’t think that’s a bad result for us at all. 
 

Cant see Man U sustaining a run of victories. These games suit them but playing ‘lesser’ opposition doesn’t. 
 

Chelsea look broken and about to be swallowed by the pack. Spurs and Wolves for them next. Be good if they drew with Spurs

Always find it weird when people think this kind of thing is bad.

 

Man Utd drew with Southampton away.

We beat them 9-0.

 

Man Utd drew with Arsenal at home.

We beat them 2-0.

 

Man Utd lost against Newcastle away.

We beat them 3-0.

 

Probably plenty more examples but basically a lot of results happen in the league and sometimes teams beat one team that another doesn't. Unless you're Liverpool lol .

Amen, its not boxing where you beat one opponent to be a champion it's a leauge with 380 matches each with wildly different outcomes.

I can just about buy Maguire's explanation there, but it still should have been a red. 

 

Terrible round of results for us, with everyone from Burnley up to Spurs winning around us. Though our fixtures to the end of the season are very favourable.

Tbh we are not great and havent been since december 

Completely agree. 'Not great' will probably get us over the line though- any upturn in form and it will be comfortable.

Aren't you pretty mediocre results wise against " favourable " teams though?

We've been inconsistent and drawn too many. We've won more against the bottom teams than the top teams this season.

STOP PANICKING

 

Our form in 2020:

8 points in 6

= 1.33 per game

= 16 more points

= 66 total points (67 required to catch due to GD)

 

Bearing in mind it's this form which our fans are calling the pits and therefore, you'd think, as bad as it can get for us.

 

Therefore to finish above us, the teams behind us will need at least:

 

Chelsea: 26 - 2.16ppg
Spurs: 27 - 2.25ppg
Sheff Utd: 28 - 2.33ppg
Man U: 29 - 2.42ppg

 

2.25 PPG form would be 58/59 points so far this season. Basically top of league form save for Liverpool's ridiculous form.

 

The form in 2020 of these teams? 

 

Chelsea: 6 from 6 = 1ppg
Spurs: 10 from 6 = 1.66ppg
Sheff Utd: 10 from 6 = 1.66ppg
Man U: 7 from 6 = 1.16ppg

 

Not QUITE top of league form.

 

Even if we only get 1 point per game (which won't happen, obviously), the teams below us would STILL NEED:

 

Chelsea: 22 - 1.82ppg
Spurs: 23 - 1.91ppf
Sheff Utd: 24 - 2ppg
Man U: 25 - 2.08ppg

 

And we'd need two of those teams to do that. 3 if 5th does it for us because of Man City. 

 

Just enjoy it and stop panicking. There's a reason Bet365 has us at 1.05 to finish top 4. When you're putting £100 on to win £5, it's basically happening.

 

I'll say it again. CHILL. OUT.

yeah it all looks this easy but it ain't, is it. 

 

the bookies (and most realistic people) also expect that by the end of next weekend, the table will look something like 

 

us, 50

chelsea, 44/42/41

spurs, 43/41/40

sheff u, 42

united, 41

wolves, 39

 

and all of a fu cking sudden we are one bad result away from being catchable. that's a shit ton of pressure on our "easy home games" which we have been rubbish at, more or less entirely, for about 4 years. we have no ndidi, vardy has forgotten how to score, our midfielders have forgotten vardy even plays for us, and that 14 point cushion from a few weeks back is going to have been halved in no time at all, so there is definitely still time for it to be completely obliterated. 

 

i still think we will get into the champions league through the incompetence of everyone else, because i ain't sure we're gonna win enough games to pull away from the pack again.

Back to back wins from us and we'll string 5 or 6 together again, easier said than done though but I'm still confident we will do it.

i’m sound bro, like i said i think we’ll be fine. i think the prices are right and we’ll finish 3rd. 

 

i just think people do have a legitimate reason to be a bit tetchy. like i said, in 7 days time we will probably have a whole host of teams not very far behind us and suddenly we will need to go from struggling to get any sort of form to needing to win 3 or 4 in a row, and that ain’t easy.

So three teams > 50 points 

 

looks like we are just missing one team in the mid forties to be comparable ....

I thought that too, but it’s the last game of the season at Stamford Bridge - could be very interesting that one. Chelsea’s next four are Spurs (h), Bayern (h), Bournemouth (a), Everton (h). They’ve still got to go to Liverpool, host Man City, and go to Sheffield United, as well as the return leg at Bayern.

No one is panicking but there are a few nuggets on here who think we're all but home and hosed. 

 

A horrible scenario for me would be to go into the last two games of the season 5pts ahead of both Tottenham and Man Utd seems as those two are our last two fixtures. For that to happen Tottenham only need to accumulate 5pts in the next 10 games more than us and Man Utd need 7pts more than us in the next 10 games. 

 

We're in a fantastic position and better than anyone could have dreamed of at the start of the season but now is the time to work hard and get some points on the board and not to "chill".

yeah, having laughed at him non stop for 5 months i forgot harry maguire existed until tonight, then i had a really bad thought that it might be him getting his massive cock out in front of the kop when they beat us and get our last champions league place.

Kavanagh did the same when he was VAR on our game against Villa when Ricardo got fouled halfway up his leg... Reviewed in like 10 seconds and told the on field ref to resume play.

 

Certain refs are just shite and become even shiter when put behind a monitor.

Yea I remember this... was it Taggart in the 4-1 win? Remember the tackle clearly meriting a red card and I didn’t even think it was reviewed! I was seething at the time because I felt it could have seriously injured Ricky!

When you’ve got a ref who can’t call this then Chelsea had no hope!

They players and management need to work hard - not panic ...... but my ‘chill’ comment is aimed at those supporters who seem to be overly worried.  It’s way too early for that and this fan mindset would not be good for the home games if widely held

Man Utd’s next four League fixtures 

Watford H

Everton A

Man C.  H

Spurs.   A

 

Watford could cause an upset and the 3 games after are incredibly difficult, I can’t see them being any nearer than 10 points behind us with 8 to play.

Thanks for this! That’s a shocking tackle and nothing happened! Understand why I was so angry at the time, it’s worse than I remembered
