Tbh I'd be over the moon if two of the top 4 come the end of the season was us and West Ham (or even Everton or Villa just to mix it up) but if they end up there at our expense I'd probably not be so happy for them

 

What a mental season. God knows how the table will look at the end

To be honest if West Ham, Everton or Villa finish top 4 this season, they could well be after a lot of similar profile players that we’ll be looking to attract.
 

Selfishly, I’m hoping it’s us and one of Chelsea or Liverpool personally, but would be nice for the likes of those teams’ fans to experience Champions League football.

It's just a cut I think. Just unlucky where the contact was. No where near enough force for concussion

Still a clash of heads? We can't really know the force of it from our TV screens. 

Just surprised the 'protocols' weren't followed for Sanchez as well, even if he was going to be deemed totally fine.

If one of the bigger/richer clubs misses out means they’re less likely to be able to take any of our players though.

Yes like Kante to Chelsea. :)

I like to think a lots changed since then, I’m not saying they definitely won’t go but these set of players seem to appreciate being at the club a lot more than Kante did.

If West Ham are going to win this one, I would like them to win it big, because it will finish Spurs off.

 

Plus we can all enjoy Jose's post-match interview when he shrugs his shoulders and suggests Spurs were the better side, whilst wearing that slightly pained expression that looks like he can smell dogmuck somewhere.

Unfortunately the filthy lucre normally talks. Ask Drinky, Maguire or Chilwell.

Lamela tackle borderline red for me.

If it was 2-footed, definitely. But off the ground and through the back, flying in I bet some refs would be giving it.

West Ham do have much more of an organised look about them. Strong in a lot of areas when everyone is fit. 

Previous seasons they've been all talk but they are now actually putting in some consistency in their performance to go with it. Credit where it's due for Moyes. Even if they lose some of their next few games they're still bound to be in top 6 (or close) and that means they're still one to keep an eye on after. 

 

When Antonio is in the side they do play much better. They have a focal point aerially but also in behind due to his pace. And I never thought I'd say this but even Lingard looks decent in this set up. 

We need the West Ham fans to be allowed back in so their home form goes back to being crap.

Trouble is, if Spurs get hammered, then papers will be full of Brendan to Spurs sh*t, which will be very unsettling for players (and fans). We can do without this.

Maybe if Rodgers reputation is hammered like Mourinhos he might join Spurs one day.

 

As it stands now next to no chance.

I agree. They're looking more like us. They've got a decent squad. Antonio is their Vardy, but even when he doesn't play they have have enough depth to still score goals. Lingard seems to have a new lease of life.

I disagree, I think Spurs are the only team that won't put us in that position - their finances are in a mess, they'd have to pay a massive payout to Mourinho and also the release clause for BR, and I guess he himself is on a fair whack here so would need to offer a higher wage too. Can't see it happening
