so whats the second tie-breaker after GD in the highly unlikely event we catch United?
it's not possible to have a tie breaker, at present man united have +2 goal difference on us, they would have to lose there remaining two games which would at least cancel out this two goal advantage and we would have to win our last game which would give us at least a 1 goal advantage, so on GD we would win, no tie-breaker.

What is very satisfying for me is that Talksport ran every sports news report yesterday leading up to the games that Chelsea could catch Tottenham in the race for 4th if they beat Huddersfield and we lost to Newcastle.

Not once did they say if we won we would go 3rd.

The stumbling over the line my give Poch some leverage in terms of seeking funds to bolster his squad because we seriously look like we are plateauing.

Looks like the squad needs a revamp and Kane needs someone to take some pressure off him because at the moment he looks he is shot.

:D But I agree with you - massive summer coming up. Need to get our recruitment right. Hopefully with CL secured and increased revenues in the last year or two it should give us some room for manoeuvre with regards to spending.
