    Ridiculous that a game Arsenal should have won 5-1 they almost conceded a last second equaliser. I do worry for us at Newcastle - I'm assuming a defeat at Spurs and even the home 'banker' against Everton is wobbly as they've picked up form.

    I’d rather be in your position than ours! As you say, though, it’s not over yet.

    City bagged a useful couple of goals at the end there

    Arsenal making it emotional again, but at this stage couldn't care less how the pints come! Massive game Thursday now. All the pressure on Spurs to go for the win - not sure if that helps Arsenal given Spurs attacking talent! Should be a cracker of a game.

    This tussle for 4th, many have said 'nobody wants 4th place' - but for me it's really added a dimension to the season and brought extra excitement. Put together with the relegation scrap, exceptional standards in race for the title, and European tilts from Leicester and West Ham, it has been a brilliant season of football.

    I am hoping we have secured our points before our trip to Arsenal, we have a terrible record at the Emirates.

    Yes having a better goal difference means even in the extremely unlikely event of them losing a game they would still win the league. I think it's safe to assume it's over and Bet Fred should be paying out already.

    Was a poor second half, needed a few goals it may also come down to goal difference.

    Big match Thursday, hard to call which way it will go, draw suits us just fine. They will beat Burnley and Norwich, Newcastle and Everton and harder matches for us, but with the way the last 2 months have gone who really knows.

    City should win the PL now.

    Haaland deal done for Man City, what now for Kane?

    Be interesting to see how he gets on in the PL. Not always as easy transition as you’d assume. Admittedly he’s not been in a performing team but Haaland’s former teammate Sancho has struggled to make an impact.

    Be interesting to see who leaves city now. Jesus, Sterling?

    He's still angling for a move to a big club where he can win trophies but I just can't see Levy allowing him to go to Arsenal

    Liverpool’s midfield selection seems like a bit of a gift to Villa and a white flag to the league chase. Jones has always been the weak link in this squad for me, but I guess this week’s priority is now the cup? Probably set up a Jones hat trick now I’ve said that.

    Expect Ings to be waiting for that first back pass :-)

    Liverpool got away with one, Diaz is a great signing and the three points are all that matter.

    Gerrard could still have a say in the title, though seems extremely unlikely.

    3 points better then nothing but think LFC needed at least another few goals in the very unlikely event City lose a game.

    Imagine losing a title on goal difference

  20. #1870
    Haaland signing could give more chance of Jesus going to Arsenal. Please don't let the rumours be true that we are after Sterling aswell, he would be a bad fit for Arsenal and we don't need / want him!

    Kane, I feel has left moving too late, he is 29 this summer, cant see anyone paying what spurs want for someone of his age. He got caught up in the mini Spurs push a few years back when he should have walked away at his prime.

    If Haaland can stay fit all season, and also assuming City will buy more people, I can only see them walking the league next year and maybe winning the CL, well he has to win the CL next year.

    Really looking forward to seeing Haaland in the PL, even if it is in another team

    Good thing for the league overall

    Haaland to Citeh is a major coup.

    Can see him doing damage in the league for the next 10 years.

    I think with him it’s got to the point where even Liverpool won’t be able to sustain the challenge in the league.

    Yes Haaland appears to be an absolute beast of a striker and he will strengthen City to alarming levels for all opposing fans.

    Even the hope of it taking him a few years to settle in to the premier league or finding it too fast or physical are as good as nil, if I were a City fan I would be over the blue moon.

    NikGixer750 I am not sure if Sterling would be as bad for Arsenal as you seem to believe, he is a player that offers a hell of a lot and is seldom injured. Don't see many teams refusing to take on a player of his quality, wage demands aside.

    IMHO Sterling wouldn't get into the Arsenal side ahead of Saka and Martinelli (or Smith Rowe). His position isn't a problem area for Arsenal - Arsenal need to strengthen at the back and up front. Jesus absolutely would walk into the side though.

    As an aside the Kane talk persists but it continues to amaze me why there isn't talk of someone coming in with a megabucks offer for Hyung Son Min. He'd get into pretty much any Premier League side - amazing player who somehow isn't courted by the huge clubs with massive budgets

    Apart from the actual signing, Peps contract is up next year. I can’t see him walking away with a talent like Haaland to work with. He couldn’t contain his delight in the presser.

    I hope both Sterling and Jesus stay but you can’t blame them for wanting away if they’re not going to get game time (Alvarez is also due to join squad this summer)

    Agreed Son is one of the stars of the prem, great addition to any side

    I thought Son had recently signed a new contract? Agree though, he’s absolute class.

    Key time for Spurs. Conté will want to win trophies which will mean more players needed. Will Levy give him the funds though? If he doesn’t then I can see Conté leaving.

    He can’t possibly live up to the hype. I expect him to be warming the bench alongside Grealish by mid-season. (Don’t quote me on that).

    Stirling would be a great fit for Arsenal - assuming the plan is to go out in the group stages of the CL while he trips over his own feet in the box.

    I'm not sure Harland will be as good as everyone thinks. City can only play with 11, so that means one of their extremely talented forwards drops out.

    About 10 years ago, pep bought another sure thing forward to fit into his Barca team. Zlatan, it was a disaster.

    Beware buying players from Dortmand and Arsenal, not sure why but generally go downhill as soon as they leave. These teams seem better in the collective than they are as individuals. lewandowski is the exception to this, even Henry was nowhere near as good for Barca when he left the arse

    Meanwhile we will mostly be buying from the bargain bins, although getting rid of pogba will be like a new signing

    Many think he's better than Kane on the pitch, but Son is definitely a bigger asset to Spurs off the pitch. He's a god in South Korea, where apparently a quarter of the population identify as Tottenham fans - more than any other team locally or globally. Think of the merchandise sales!

    When both sets of fans think he’s had a terrible game then maybe he’s doing something right. Or he had a total shocker…

    I think he had the Newcastle flip flops on - it is May after all. And let’s not mention the “linesman”. One job…

    Leeds have totally imploded in the last month. I’ll be sorry to see them go down - they’ve been much more entertaining to watch than many of the others around them in the table.

    I agree, they are in free fall after a promising start which is a shame
