On the plus side, it makes the Chelsea Spurs game this weekend exciting
Did you watch the previous two games this month? I don’t wanna jinx us and release Charity FC, but Tottenham didn’t have an answer or a goal in both games. But ya, this one is now a lot more important than the league cup.

LFC can go 7 up now on Chelsea if they win their two makeup games. Honestly didn't see this lapse coming by Chelsea, but like we were saying at the beginning of the year...it's consistency that is so hard to come by in the EPL. City's found the secret, and it generally has to do with how their bench is better than 3/4 of the team's starting lineups.

Only the first one, and that was enough to keep me from watching the rematch. But it becomes more interesting with the games in hand that Spurs have and the race for 3rd/4th somehow becoming an actual race now.

Eh i agree to that to an extent. Ye City is the best team we might have ever seen in the EPL, but they have also survived covid cases and injuries. Good on them

Chelsea had covid + injuries and up to 13 people out during our packed December schedule. The worst time in the schedule to deal with missing players. Now we are still missing our WBs and it is showing. We’ve only won 3 of our last 11 PL games. These poor performances are painful to watch. The players just look exhausted with zero sharpness. Flat performances over and over

Another thing to think about with injuries and covid - Chelsea hasn’t had more than 5 days off between games since November 20th. Thats a brutal stretch when you lose almost half your squad in December

Trying to figure out what the games City are most likely to drop if LFC are going to somehow have a chance at the EPL title. I mean obviously we'll have to beat them clean whatever happens in our next game vs. them and then it's gonna take what...a loss or draw to Everton or the spuds? :rofl: United is going to get destroyed. I just can't see it happening.

It seems like all of the PL teams left in Europe are really going to have an uphill battle with their schedules. It would be nice if the FA would use a little common sense with their scheduling, but I guess there isn't much money in that.

Lol right. There’s talks to move the WC to every two years and (i think) the euopa every year between that

I’m not one to say its impossible but i dont see it happening. Just secure the top four and focus on other trophies available

Hoping for a little mini lapse. I mean, a loss and a draw puts us there if LFC can take 3 from them as well. Seems so far fetched though.
Eh you never know, maybe covid hurts them on the back end. Still a lot of games left

Although I’m surprised you don’t have the same thoughts on chels
Well United have no shot and won’t seem to for several years at the least. My preference would be no other top English teams winning anything, but if I have to choose then it’s a no brainer between city, Liverpool, and Chelsea. Besides, I always have 2008 to look back on

Whats your difference between City, Liverpool, and Chelsea?

As a Chelsea fan i hate 2008 lol. But understand the comfort of looking back as a United fan

All are usually rivals to win the league or at least finish top four, but Liverpool are United’s biggest rival historically with Leeds. City are big rivals for obvious reasons geographically, though they were absolute ass until fairly recently. Chelsea are almost always a top team but there isn’t the same level of hatred for them as the others.
