Burnley coming up on the rails. Dark horse for a top half finish?

I have just seen the 3 minutes of highlights of the Villa v Burnley game. For all I know the other 87 minutes might have been as dull as ditchwater but the clip below is well worth a watch; cracking stuff.

For the majority of my football watching life Spurs have been one of the most entertaining teams to watch, what has Jose done to them?

What Jose does to all teams! 

They'll need to come out and play now. They're 0-2 down now.

Well I gave up at half time. I was looking forward to watching Liverpool’s suffering and Klopp busting a blood vessel.

So, Liverpool's central defensive options for the remainder of the season are:

Phillips, Henderson, Fabinho and Williams.

Two kids and two midfielders.

Matip now joins Gomez and Virgil with a long-term ligament injury (ankle ligaments I think)

Si we are losing Ings to Spurs and Vesta to Liverpool?

And how much have they won? 

I'm not over 60. Although I do clearly remember Ricardo Villas FA cup goal. I'm talking about teams I have traditionally liked to watch, or more to the point looked forward to seeing us play them in the flesh, generally very entertaining. Some great players / entertainers over the years. I'm not of the Adrian Durham school, what have they one blah blah blah... sack the manager... blah blah blah. PS  Lest we not forget Chas and Dave,  apropos, gercha to you M'Lord D!

Aren’t West Brom absolutely shite. Fulham should be 4-0 up

If it's true that Maitalnd Niles has a choice of Saints or WBA you'd think it was a foregone conclusion. Unless of course Fat Sam is able to offer a few incentives.

They were dreadful first half, no running or pressure on Fulham at all and Lemina played well. Second half he and Fulham invisible, WBA new striker from Galatasaray has made a huge difference with pace and power, set up the second goal. Lemina just hooked for Harrison Reed. Nearly 3-1, Bartley very close having got the equaliser.

And just like that Leeds are on the same number of points as us. 

Thats what happens when you back a decent manager with some money (96 million net spend in the summer) compared with our penny pinching (12 million net spend). Ralph may claim to be happy about the self sustainable mantra of the club, but its only a matter of time until he sees clubs passing us and gets persuaded to go elsewhere just like Poch/Koeman

Why do people talk about form as if it will last forever. 

I’m looking at the injuries. 

Vestergaard, KWP, Diallo, Walcott, Romeu?, Smallbone. 

Ings and Adams both seem low on Confidence.

Redmond is Redmond. Not been impressed with Bertie this year.

Any injury to JWP or Bednarek and we’re in real trouble...

I follow Lille's games as Fonte was one of my favourite Saints players, and their 1-0 win today takes them 2 points clear at the top of the French League. The central defensive partnership of Fonte and Botman is one of the finest in European football.

In spite of the fact that they were awarded 2 penalties and Neymar scored from both of them, PSG lost this weekend.

Now starting to look for teams below to lose rather than those above.

Know what you mean. Found myself wanting Spurs to actually score tonight

I see Poch is trying is best to maintain his status as the world's greatest manager who has won sweet F. A. (not counting a recent French Charity Shield).

Leicester v Leeds is a decent watch.

I wish we moved the ball as quickly as these 2 teams are.

They do when they have the first team on the pitch and are playing confidently: first half of the last Leicester game.

There is yet another Saints connection in Ligue 1 as our former head of recruitment, Paul Mitchell, is now the DOF at 4th-placed Monaco. Lille's DOF, Luis Campos, is also outstanding at finding hidden gems in the transfer market, the latest of which is Botman:

Whilst watching that yesterday, took me back to our game when the commentator said where would Leicester be without Vardy (I mentioned in a thread same place we are without Ings) - you could see yesterday Leeds weren't having to keep half an eye out for Albert Steptoes love child lurking to pounce at any given moment on any loose ball.
