Premier League is pretty crazy this year.

Would be amazing that in a year where Spurs are great and the regular big sides are awful that Leicester would go and win it.

I'm a realist though unfortunately. It'll be Man City, and then they'll go onto dominate for the next few years under Pep.

I believe Howe does have a clause that allows him to talk to top 4 clubs but the only club his style would actually slot into would be Arsenal and im sure he would stay with us.

Afobe so far looks a fantastic signing looking forward to seeing him and Wilson upfront together, Grabban on the other hand looks a terrible buy just not good enough for this league.

And I so hope Sunderland go down this season they remind me of Wigan play terrible for 3/4 of the season to wake up for the final part and stay up with no real desire to actually improve in following seasons

Grabban transfer was inflated by January madness but he's a striker that 2 of the best young managers in the country clearly rated, maybe it's not too ridiculous. A popular guy in the Bournemouth dressing room too by all accounts, that can't hurt.

Woohoo! Well done Sunderland. A win next week will take them out of the relegation zone.

Yep, typically they win right after I write them off.

How many young defenders who would never play in normal circumstances have had a chance at United now?

2 - 0 is truly the most dangerous lead. Well, it is when your defence is made out of tissue paper. Tettey back next week for the easy trip to Leicester, injuries and bans have meant we've really missed the solidarity of Tetts and O'Neil during the last block of games. Am trying to not focus too much on the bottom of the table right now, should be exciting come April though.

6 clean sheets, 5 wins and a draw in 6 games for Southampton since Fraser Forster returned from injury. Surely a contender for the England squad at the Euros this summer.

I'm glad Saints are doing well anyway, gives me some football to watch while the continuous bad weather keeps causing the postponement of Totton's games. Praying the rain stays away this week though. We've got the local derby against Bashley this weekend and they drew 0-0 last night for their first point of the season.

Here's a link to the league table so you can see how well they're doing this season.

Pretty sure he'll make the squad. On current form it should be between him and Butland but in reality I think Hart's probably undroppable because muh big clubs.

Sure I won't be as triggered when Ruddy fails to make this summer tournament.

Forster's overall influence has been the key to Saint's resurgence. He is a big character in the dressing room and he instructs his defence extremely well, so much that you can clearly hear what he is saying halfway up the stands. Stekelenberg wasn't an awful 'keeper but you can definitely see what a great 'keeper brings to the game ahead of a good 'keeper.

I forgot that it was on tbh. Shame.

Also forgot that we were playing Chelsea tonight until somebody mentioned it to me a few hours ago. My bearings are so off at the moment.

Edit - Naimar out, guess we'll probably only win 2 - 0.

A win over Newcastle at the weekend should secure our Premier League position for another season definetly given we still have Villa away (they cant beat us twice surely)

Unreal that our small tinpot club will manage to survive a Premier League season where we have never really have a full strength side and our top striker has been out for 4/5 of it so looking forward to next season when Afobe is upfront with Wilson

We throw results away or just get incredibly unlucky atm. Of course the big failure was not signing a central defender in the summer. David McNally pretty much told the fans that Koulibaly had agreed a contract and would have signed had Napoli gotten in a replacement, probably going to end up a 'what could have been' type of season.



Massive game tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Leicester are 5 points clear at the top.

Boro's unstable run continues, I have no idea whether that win on Friday was the end or whether we'll continue to be constantly up and down. Gaston Ramirez is a delight to watch though.

It's a bit of a shame Spurs couldn't hold on to their win. As much as I want Leicester to win the title, it might be more fun if it stayed closer.

Hopefully you'll be supporting Boro for the rest of the year then. :P

I love him so far, I hope he doesn't fade away after a few great performances like the man he replaced (Fabbrini).

as a brighton fan i desperately hope that boro's shaky run continues. hull are looking good and burnley are looking completely unstoppable, so we need people to slip up, especially if we're not scoring against teams like pne. that one wasn't fun.

i'm pumped for MLS because it's one of the only leagues that doesn't require me to stay up until 4 in the morning to watch games. can't wait.

Starting to get excited I want to be able to celebrate our league survival... but fearing its a little early to do so. 11 points clear of the drop but our GD pretty much makes it 12 points surely its just a formality

Yeah this year the whole football world learned two new things. Jose Mourinho is the special three instead of special one as he self proclaimed and Leicester is in 1st position so crazy this year lol.

The special 3 are surely Ranieri, Pochettino and Howe
Amazing to think not only are Lecister and Spurs the top 2 theres also the potential of West Ham cracking the top 4

You're safe tittlemouse, I'm sure you can celebrate already.

Meanwhile our battle will be either going down to the wire or failing miserably early. We need to get Rhodes firing quickly because Nugent is suddenly laughably bad.
