    Don't think Liverpool will beat Chelski at the bridge.

    Arsenal gave Liverpool far to much space and not nearly enough respect. They failed to stop Liverpool playing the way they want to. It was less of a brilliant performance by Liverpool but more of a very poor game and inexplicable tactics against a team who have pace, creativity, a strong midfield presence and are very difficult to beat at Anfield.
    Valencia for example played a Barca squad which on paper was a league above them but harried, pressed, sat deep and broke very quickly. they also disrupted play and stifled Messi and Co.. Arsenal gave Liverpool space and time to play the way they wanted to.
    It is possible to beat the other big teams but Arsenal failed to turn up yesterday. My hope was that the bigger teams took points off each other this season because that is the only way we will win the league.
    I have said all along that it was between Chelski and Man C.
    All said and done, we are only a point behind and many games to go.

    They didn't - I was at the league game at The Bridge on 29 Dec, Chelski won 2-1.

    @At Stevo...That's right - I remember a couple of ref decisions going your way :wink:

    West brom aw Win 1-0
    Everton hm Win 2-1 (possibly 1-1)
    Fulham aw Win 3-1
    Spurs hm Win 3-0
    Villa aw Draw
    Arsenal hm Win 2-1
    CP aw Win 2-0 Unless Pulis can mastermind a plan which he is capable of.
    Stoke hm Win 3-0
    Swansea aw Win 1-0
    Sunderland hm Win 4-1
    Liverpool aw Loss 3-2
    Norwich hm Win (put x amount here)
    Cardiff aw Win 2-1...Interesting fixture if Cardiff have not already been relegated and the title is still up for loosing.

    Think it is sewed up. Except, 4 out of the next 5 fixtures are away from home. Busy 3 weeks for you. Injuries, tiredness...

    West Brom proved a bit of a banana skin.
    Giroud fired 4 blanks.
    City have a game in hand.

    ...twists and turns...

    Was umming and aahing over whether to get tickets for the Chelski - Arsenal game next month.

    Still, we're top for now. That'll do me.

    I think this player needs to work on his goal celebration routine. :lol:

    Although it is still better than the Sturridge one.
  • pinnopinno Posts: 47,823
    City 2, Chelski 0...

    That probably will allow Chelski the league win whilst City are trying the impossi..., sorry - quadruple. Unless City are just too strong.

    Meh. mixed feelings on that result.

    I almost expected that. Still, 6 points off Sh1tty in the league this season is good going. What's the betting on Cockneys v Scousers tomorrow?

    cocksneys will have their revenge for the humiliation the other week
  • Will Wenger sacrifce this one? They didn't look very lively against Moan U and they've got Bayern on Wed night so be interesting to see what his line up is.

    I don't really care as long as Manure keep on losing in the league :)

    Cockneys 2 - Scousers 1. Wahey.

    Suarez should have perhaps got a penalty but his over reaction to the foul ruled that out.

    Looking forward to the Bayern game?

    Well, we beat Borussia Dortmund which no British team has done and I just hope Podolski is on the pitch as well as Oxlaid Chamberlain.

    I'm glad your back in the fold but there's no need to diss the 4rse.

    Can I presume that you have fallen off your bike and you are only here by virtue of the fact that you haven't anything else to do because you are convalescing.
