Correct decision for Goal of the Season I think. A stunning finish from a great pass. Would be interested to see Vardy in a bigger team. Would do well for United I think.

But would a "big team" play to his strengths?
Pace, hold-up play, and finishing are his strengths I think, and those things never go out of style. Not sure which of the big clubs need those things just now, but there must be one. Liverpool? Us?? One might say Arse if they hadn't just spunked a fortune on Laca and Auba. Ditto United and Lukaku.

Vardy would probably do well in a Spanish team too, if it ever came to it.

Heh, Wright and Shearer saying Liverpool will be the closest challengers next season.

4th to 1st/2nd? doubt it lads.
It's possible... after all Chelsea went from 1st to 5th in one season... :ROFLMAO:
Liverpool are going to be a little stronger in central midfield with Keita, although he also has a tendency for a red card or two. Fully expect them to also sign a better 'keeper.
There's a lack of quality in depth to their squad at the moment, and that's why they fell way short (that and not getting VVD until January).
As much as I hate them, they'll be putting on a stronger challenge next season.

Based on this season's figures, they need to find 25 more points.

Agreed on them needing a better keeper, which you'd assume they will try to get, and Keita already coming in. Even with some reinforcements, it's a big ask. Even Man Utd, the second highest spenders, were 19 points behind City.

There's no way they're pulling in 25 more points next year.
However, I also don't think City will replicate what they did this year.
Will the players have the hunger to try and top that??
I think this time their focus will be on winning the CL.

They’re pretty much convinced Poch’s statement meant he was off unless we broke our wage structure.

Not really how I read it but Lineker and Shearer seemed pretty set.

No idea why but the Poch thread is locked in Spurs Chat so nowhere else to talk about this.
They took the quotes and mixed them up. It’s not the order or how he said them at all. Disgusting.

The media always do this. They base their predictions on what happened this season but it never works out like that.
Teams and managers do figure out other teams.
New players dont work out.
Good players leave.
Some pplayers get bum ache their move didnt come off and cause problems
I cant see City it again next season.
Chelsea may or may not get their act together.
Arsenal imo are in for a rough ride.
Man U could go either way as could we.

One thing I can predict with absolute certainty, we wont be in the top 4 of 98% of so called experts predictions.
The 2% will be ex Spurs.
