Wild that if Chelsea win their game in hand they move to 7th and 2 points off United. Proper indictment of how shit the mid-table pack has been this year, United among them.

Also no doubt that an injury free Newcastle would have been well clear of United and Chelsea and pushing us. If Poch's shit bunch end up in Europe it really will be on luck not merit.

Imagine where Chelsea would be this season without Palmer (p)
If our midfield works on the day and theirs perform like this I cant see them beating us. Caceido and Fernandez were poor, how did they end up giving Brighton so much for Caceido and Cucarrella?

Hindsight but I am gutted we didn't sign Palmer. As close to Kane as you can get. He's a brilliant passer most games and extremely unselfish with his passing too. He can score as well and take a penalty.

I'm not sure how his stats will look in 10 years time but I'm impressed.
Palmer is a cracking player but I wouldn't say he's anything like Kane as a player tho

Apparently that ref is Australian. The theory among the wackier United fans is he was scared they were going to catch us and that's why he gave everything Chelsea's way.

He's a 21 year old kid. His output and performances in big situations this season are undoubtedly excellent. Whether he's signing of the season or not doesn't really matter. Taking our biased spurs had off, it's clear the kid looks like a future star. We'd be gassing him up to no end if he was in our shirt.
Granted i havent seen him all the time but when i have i dont see him dominating games, but yes he is very good for a 21year old. Its just tonight i have seen him compared to hazard by a chelsea fan, ohara said he is as good as bale, and now one of our fans has compared him to kane. All three of those are leagues above him. Half his goals have been penalties, (again great temperament no doubt) but take them away and 8 goals in 26 league games with a few of them being deflected or scuffs, doesnt paint him to be this massive beast.

But as you said he is young, lets see where he is in 3 years time.

They're all screeching, wondering what Dalot was thinking charging forward after the penalty... he obviously thought "I've just fucked up but I CAN FIX IT".

This stat is insane, it actually paints onana in some good light to have only conceded as few goals as he has done this year lol.

but seriously that must be 220 odd shots faced in what 11/12 matches? EDIT JUST CHECKED AND IT IS INFACT 10 matches! Bonkers

I said that six weeks ago but after dropping the WH and Fulham points and having to play the top three, coupled with them only having Liverpool and Arsenal at home and their result tonight I’m now a bit concerned.

Not sure if you're being serious or not. On the basis that you are, the fact is we could be 12 points ahead of United on Sunday night.

I honestly don't see us losing 3 games more (4? if Sunday goes in our favour) than United in the run-in.

I was when I posted that but ten minutes later I’ve slightly changed my view!
