The English Football Thread

Started by Steve,

Only stats to be sure, but I don't like the following - 

The top 5 Premier League teams in terms of possession, in order - Man City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool, Southampton
in terms of yellow&red cards - West Ham, Huddersfield, West Brom, Man City, Chelsea (we have the most red cards)
in terms of aerial duels won, most won first - Man City, Stoke, Man United, Burnley, Arsenal
in terms of shots per game - Liverpool, Tottenham, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool
in terms of pass accuracy - Man City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Man United, Liverpool

imo, without Hazard we're no longer a top 4 team. All the other usual faces are in & amongst the stats you want to be top of. We aren't. At all. We play nothing like a great team should; the stats then show that. We're far off from being great again. And it's down to our midfield more than anything. Full of athletes, with only 1 out-and-out footballer

Incredible. Sterling is keeping the City run going.

They're gonna be champions, aren't they..

Even when they are not at their best, everything goes their way.

It will need a total collapse of their part, for somebody to have a sniff at them.

Getting that amount of stoppage time for a half that was of rather average time delays is just criminal. For some reason the FA want them to win it. Rather them than Jose tbf. We should just focus on the cups as we will not win the CL. But win Carling and FA and it still will be a good season.

They are going to break our records from last season, aren't they? Especially the winning run. We had 13 wins, I think City are on 12 right now. They face West Ham at home next. And Man United afterwards?

In short - yes, they are going to be champions.

I can see them breaking the record for most goals.

Not so sure about the winning run yet - we’re talking about Mourinho here. He can bore to death even the most scoring teams (i.e. Pep’s Barca).

Could care less about the winning run. Just desperately hoping they don't break our Most Points, Most Wins and Most Goals records!

Just watched pool VS stoke replay. I have no clue how in the hell mignolet did not get straight red,it was as obvious as denying goalscoring opportunity as you can see.

They always get the rub of green from referees, but mancity is on another level now in terms of getting favors. How did mancity get 6 mins added on when there was no injuries or long stoppage of play.

Meanwhile, United have yet to play a single match against a top 5 side, besides their loss to us.

And their average opponent’s table place right now is 12th. In fact, they’ve played:

3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20

Will be curious to see how Mourinho does against the other good sides.hh

Guessing that's an old stat? They have played Liverpool (5th) and haven't played Burnley (6th).

Oops Burnley was 5th for a while above liverpool. But my point still stands. Im definitely sure we'll finish above United

Seems Tottenham are falling back to where they belong. The biggest nail would be a club swooping in for Eriksen, though it seems unlikely.

Last thing the FA and the media want before the Manchester derby next week is a meaningless match. City play useless West Ham tomorrow and could go ten or eleven points clear should United fail to beat Arsenal. 

Never thought I would say this but I'm rooting for Arsenal tonight. United is going to win though because of those reasons I have written and after yet another Mourinho 'masterclass' :wank2: against a top team away from home.
