    Reality check

    1. We can still win the Champions League. 2. We can still sign Jack Grealish.

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Chelsea

    Hard to pick a MOTM from so many great performances. It was clearly our best overall performance of the season, and it is comforting to know we can still pick up the points when we're not playing at this level. I went for Son because of his absolute drive to score and make attacks. He missed a...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Palace

    This was a huge game. Quite a few key players missing and away from home again. But we took the chance to close the gap on our rivals and put pressure on the teams who didn't play. Joint second highest points tally, and scored just one less than title-contenders Liverpool. A great start to the...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs West Ham

    A better performance than we've seen recently, but some way off our best. Still, 21 points from 9 games isn't bad. That's the main thing. MOTM? I guess the right answer is Lloris, but I'll go with Lamela. What a story. Looked like his career was done - at least with us - and now he's back and...

    Dele out for 4 weeks?

    Lamela has been effective in his appearances so far and Moura has been one of our best players. They both have a few goals this season, too. Son must be eager to get his season rolling after the internationals. It will be an exciting, attacking lineup with plenty of pace. Not sure about the...

    He's gone and done it again

    Of course Harry deserves it. Do people think the Golden Boot should be awarded to a player who didn't score the most goals?

    Gareth Bale

    I was browsing for Bale news while downloading brownware. The headline made me clench up, but I released with great vigor when I saw the source.

    Gareth Bale

    I was just reading that. https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/972787/Real-Madrid-Gareth-Bale-Tottenham-Barcelona-Christian-Eriksen-transfer-news-gossip-rumours "...Real president Florentino Perez is keen to offer Bale back to Tottenham in exchange for Christian Eriksen, according to Don...

    Well worn cliches...

    "They can beat anyone on their day." "Taking it one game at a time." Yep. That's how time works. But the really brainless ones come in the post-match interviews: "How happy/disappointed are you with that result?" Please ask meaningful questions. We already know that the answer will be "very...".

    Was he any good?

    Rate Our Season

    Before the season kicked off, my main concerns were: 1. CL qualification. It seemed important to open the new stadium with CL football. 2. A CL campaign we could be proud of. We had a tough group and I wanted us to prove we could qualify from it after the disappointment last time. Honestly, I...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Leicester City - Match Thread

    What a season. 3rd place, won our CL group and had a few great results, 30 league goals for Kane, and all of the season played away from home.

    Shelvey and Zaha

    I think Zaha might get us a few points. I'd be happy enough with signing him. He'll be expensive, but he's a good player. Everyone is expensive these days. Shelvey can pick a pass, but he isn't Hoddle, Pirlo or Eriksen. Where would he play? He doesn't do what Dembele does for us, and he's the...

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    Great win for Hughton and Brighton. As it stands, United need 4 points from their final 2 games to be sure of second place. A few months ago I would not have believed we'd be in with a decent shot at second place at the end of the season with no proper home games.

    Which would be more bearable?

    Rather get to the final than not.
