You guys can't lose BT.

We've got a pretty good record against them Wenona.  I'm far from confident, but we've beaten Arsenal and Chelsea in the last few weeks - there's no reason why we can't get a point against City.

I watched the Bolton game and your lot were lucky to get the three points.

Depends who you ask, I guess.  I'm not saying we played well - God knows we put in some shockers at times - but I listened to much of the game on the wireless, and the commentators suggested that had we someone other than Pav playing up front - someone like Stephen Hawking - we could have scored six.  Admittedly, we could have also conceded three or four.

I know we can be hot and cold (we've lost to Wolves twice this year) but you can't read too much into one game.

Pav was terrible. Wild first touch blasts all over the place, takes the poor option too often, not composed.

I thought they played a lot better in the 3-1 loss to Man U actually.

Despite the poor team performance against Bolton, Gareth Bale stood out like a beacon. A class above everyone else on the pitch except Gomes.  He's going to be a star.

That's what I keep hearing about Bale (don't have Fox, so don't get to see them much).  Our next problem is hanging on to him - finishing fourth would go a long way to ensuring we can do this.

Tomorrow morning sees the biggest football game since the F.A. Cup replay of 1981 (coincidentally, also against City).

Come on you Spurs!

Thanks mate, I can't believe it.  Look up long-suffering in the dictionary and you'll find 'Spurs fan'.

Harry must be close to a knighthood for 'services to lost causes'.

Well the real issues are done and dusted. Can't see Chelsea losing and the rest really is just possible positional changes.

The importance of not settling for draws can be seen by 5th and 6th losing 2 less than 3rd and 4th. Been one of my bug bears about Villa. Year after Year we draw far too often.

Also a great defensive game occured in the SPL overnight. Hibs led 6-2 after 65 mins and drew.   :lol:


FT   Motherwell [6 - 6] Hibernian
11'   [0 - 1]      C. Nish    
16'   [1 - 1]   G. Coke       
20'   [1 - 2]      C. Nish    
28'   [1 - 3]      D. Riordan    
36'   [1 - 4]      C. Nish    
39'   [2 - 4]   J. Sutton       
56'   [2 - 5]      A. Stokes    
65'   [2 - 6]      A. Stokes    
67'   [3 - 6]   G. Coke       
72'   [4 - 6]   T. Hateley       
76'   [5 - 6]   J. Sutton       
90'   [6 - 6]   L. Jutkiewicz

Cheers mate, but I haven't given up hope of knocking Arsenal from third.  I just hope Fulham have got one big game left in them before the UEFA Cup final.

Great to have the trophy back at the Bridge :clap2:

To see the boys slot a lazy eight past Wigan was a great way to do it. Also cracking the 100 goal mark for the season should silence the 'boring Chelsea' calls once and for all.

You're only pretenders until you've put nine past Wigan  ;)

Congrats mate - not a fan of your mob, but you were clearly the best team all year.  To be honest, it was a huge effort by Utd to get as close as they did.

Well done to the Red Devils on having a superb defensive record all season.   emthup

As i thought at the time - the title race was all over when we lost to Chelsea at home.

Man U went from 5 ons to 5/1 the moment Rooney got injured.

Geez the Wmbley pitch is a shocker.

Roman would have to be happy with the double.

It is indeed a shocker, but you should be grateful for it - it's the only reason you were playing Pompey and not us.   

Yes, the pitch was the same for both teams in our semi, and good luck to Pompey, but I have no doubt that given a 'level playing field' we would have been there on Saturday.

Anyhoo, congrats on the double - clearly the best team all year, and as a Pompey fan said to me 'at least Chelsea still give the Cup the respect that it deserves'.

The EPL is set to become a lot more colourful next year, with the hilarious Ian Holloway having just managed Blackpool to promotion (from sixth, no less).

Have a squiz, I can't wait for some more interviews like this -

Huge effort to get the club promoted. Their stadium only holds about 10-15k.

So how about us telling which team we support.

From what I've seen so far.

Nick Rivers-Spurs
BillandTony- Chelsea
JohnWesleyHarding- Arsenal
Larsy- Whoever he's backed.

Would any others like to contribute?

and after all these years, and with Liverpool a mile ahead, we read that Jeunes follows Liverpool
