    An interesting result last night. I wonder how Spursy Spurs are going to be tonight?

    A comfortable win for Citeh tonight.

    I’ve been proved wrong again with us beating Utd, although we didn’t look that great really. All the cricket score predictions were a bit ridiculous. Sutton predicted 1-5!

    Not really if you consider the hoofings  that Arsenal have handed out this season, coupled with the same dire United squad conceding 4 against Palace less than a week earlier, which could well have been more

    But to be fair to Utd – they always seem to play well against the top teams, as they like to dominate posession.

    As soon as they play their peers like Palace they struggle.

    Luckily Villa played with 12 men – their own team and Alexis Macallister who was unable to make a pass. Poor pass straight to a villa player that set Villa up for the first goal and what the hell was he doing for the second? In between that was a lot of hitting the ball at Villa players…

    Enjoyable game as a neutral (who dislikes both teams equally as much).

    I don’t agree, IMO some of the scorlines have flattered the performances that united have put in against the top teams.

    In any of the Liverpool players had put their shooting boots on in any of the games against us this season, they could have been in double figures by half time, they created so many chances

    Luckily for us… Nunez

    He is the new Forlan

    Impressive before his move to England, clearly very talented but something is just not clicking for him

    A Spurs fan has just been on Five Live saying the Spursiest thing that could possibly happen would be to beat Citeh tonight, to hand the title to Arsenal, then to go to Sheffield on Sunday and lose, missing out on the Champions League anyway 😂

    nah the spudeist thing is to play well and still lose to ManC and lose on Sunday and finish below Chelsea on goal difference

    So, will Spurs find a backbone tonight? I know it’s the North London derby but I never thought of it as being malicious and hate filled like Reading Oxford.

    I’d hope Oxford v Reading wouldn’t be quite as dull as this

    It seems to be taking place at walking pace, in a library

    I think you know i mean The NLD. The history with Woolwich is extensive and feelings run deep.

    Sturridge is such a poor pundit.

    as indeed it does with the TVD.

    Were Spurs and Arsenal ever mooted to join up with each other to become North London Hotshots?

    Sturridge is such a poor pundit

    He’s an absolute quarter-wit. The only amusing thing is when they put him next to Roy Keane who just spends his entire time glaring at him with a look of utter contempt on his face

    So, 5 in a row then?

    Probably, unless there’s a bit of an exodus, Bernardo Silva, KDB, Kyle Walker. But they’re so good at replacing players.

    Looks that way. Robostriker does it again

    The spurs fans are making more noise and seem a lot happier now they’ve definitely lost it, than they did the whole game.

    I totally get that though. Our season has been absolutely bloody awful but we put the scousers out of the FA Cup and then ended their title challenge, so you know… on reflection… could be worse. 😉

    I could go into the reasons for the hatred,  the underhand dealings, but at the end of the day the scale of the passion and reasons don’t always match.   Spurs and Arsenal are not just rivals, there is a true hatred between the fans.

    I’ve got 2 mates who are Spurs fans, they drone on about their hatred for Chelsea virtually all the time. They grew up in Reading.

    Anyway… never mind all that title race and champions leagues spots nonsense, it the real business end tonight…

    Who’ll get that UEFA Conference League place? Who’s going to be spending their Thursday nights in Kazakstan?

    Now that’s one game I’d deliberately lose. Having to spend the prior Wednesday in a bivouac in Kairat Almaty before the game.

    Bring on the Euros, some meaningful matches for a change. It’s quite unedifying watching millionaires fighting for scraps from the billionaires table.

    so how do you think it’ll go ? personally I think it’s slowing sucking all  the Joy from the game.

    There’s been a lot of talk about scrapping it in Scotland. Decisions take far too long and there are still as many contentious decisions. It’s probably worse in Scotland as some games don’t have enough cameras for accurate offside decisions. It’s not just VAR though, the handball rules now are a lottery and offside isn’t much better.

    Its stupid to scrap VAR, the reality is that it gets far more decisions right than used to be the case, and the semi-automatic offside equipment should massively speed the process up next year.

    The biggest problem is the idiotic pundits misrepresenting the rules and the decisions, usually with a thick dollop of bias for the teams they once played for, creating a atmosphere of whining against the refs and VAR.

    You won’t find many West Ham fans who regret competing in the Conference league.

    Not sure why the stand on the back of the ankle by Amrabat wasn’t deemed a foul?

    Ouch, just seen the aftermath

    Well no, not if you win it. But there can be little doubt that teams that take part in such gruelling midweek journeys affects league form.

    Sure, but unless relegation is a risk, does it matter? Let’s face it, the league title and champions league places are largely sewn up.

    How can you say that when the title has literally gone down to the last game after being a three horse race for most of the season, Villa are in the Champions League, Newcastle are in Europe and United and Chelsea are absolutely nowhere?

    The only predictable constant  this season has been Spurs being Spursy

    City are about to win their sixth title in seven seasons, so you’ll forgive me for not finding the league to be particularly competitive. Only established big six teams have ever pushed them at all, and that a single team outside that group has qualified for the CL is not evidence of much at all.

    I know it was 8 years ago (or last month), but remember when Leicester won the league?

    Major turning point for NUFC in the summer. are we ambitious and can Howe sell the ‘hard workers’? Longstaff, Burn, Almiron and Wilson just aren’t good enough (or never fit in Wilsons case) and need to go. I see two scenarios next season:

    • Bruno and Isak starting first game of next season, with a couple of quality signings alongside.
    • Longstaff and Wilson starting, Bruno and Isak elsewhere.

    which one is it going to be Eddie??

    They haven’t won it yet. It’s the last game on Sunday and they can still lose it. There were 3 teams neck-and-neck until a couple of weeks ago

    The 4th spot has gone down to the last week. The 2 biggest spending clubs have had woeful seasons and are absolutely nowhere

    Are you seriously suggesting that’s not a competitive league?
