Hurrah...still think Liverpool be 4th but least not below Spurs..

Makes yesterday more annoying that unless some miracle West Brom have no chance of staying up..though considering their results against us thats not a bad thing!

IF we win out except for Citeh (hardest games on paper are West Ham, Arse, and Leicester, and the last game of the season, Villa), and IF Manure beats Pool (or Pool loses any other game even if they beat Manure)

they cannot mathematically catch us for 4th

we also have to pray that both Arse and Pool do NOT win the EL and CL, respectively

as then they would go to the CL and knock us out even though we finished 4th

Arsenal, as shit as they have been, have seriously fucked us up so often in the last 4 seasons (double FA Cup finals losses, and crucial league losses) The big exception was us destroying them in the EL final.

Crazy that Arse have won 4 of the last 7 FA Cups, given how absolute shit they have been and how good the league has become

That would be even worse.. finishing 4th and still loosing out. Just case of see what happens now. Hopefully we can respond..and other teams don't lol.

Or win the champions league...maybe...not lol. Stranger things have happened. That be a nice ending to this topsy turvey weirdness

Good.

Don't even care about the West Ham game to be honest, even if they do go ahead in the table.

We need to focus on picking up more points than Leicester in the coming games., and the all important 6 pointer against them next month.

Leicester and Manure are basically locks for 2nd and 3rd

especially if Leicester beats West Ham and we lose to Citeh

they would have to to lose to us, Spuds, Manure

AND we could only top them even then IF we win all our games left except for Citeh.

 a draw against against Spuds or Manure for them (and lose against us) still likely cements it

if we only draw again Leicester and win all the rest except for Citeh, we end on 70 points

if they beat West Ham, draw to us, and lose versus Manure and Spuds, they likely end on 72 points

only reason to care about their results is when they play us or Pool or Spuds or West Ham (or Arse in the EL IF Pool is still alive in the CL, as those two could fuck us off from the CL despite us being 4th in the EPL if they both win the Cups and are outside the top 4 in the EPL)

Other than a swap of Fred for Scott McTominay

this is Manure's absolute strongest line-up possible IMHO

I suppose you could make a case for Martial over Cavani, but if Cavani is firing on all cylinders he is still a better CF (this is the last year you can claim this as he turns 35 next winter) than Martial

Martial out the rest of the season. Injured during international.

ManUre look dross, so penalty incoming

Maybe it is just me but they have not matured or developed at all under OGS. They just have added Penandes but every sinlge on of their players is still the same. They had this hot streak after the restart last season but have returned to mean since. Completely boring and predictable + pace. But Brighton ahve been smart enough not to overcommit. just sit deep and ManUre are useless.
