Spurs have a sickening chance of winning the whole thing if Man City and Liverpool don't pull their socks up.

If Son get's injured I think they are screwed though.

Pre-Christmas Jose and post-Christmas Jose are two distinctly different animals.  Not that he'll adapt the style of play he calls for (in fact, the bus will be hauled out for even "less big" matches), but the first run of bad form they go through (and they will, because everyone barring last season's Liverpool does), he'll start throwing his players under the bus (pun intended) because Jose is not capable in Jose's mind of being the one at fault.

@Oregon Ducks Yall in panic mode any?

Fulham and follow it with Zorya Lugansk. Zorya payroll on par with Hull City and Luton Town. After Sheffield this weekend. Leichester runs into a beefy few weeks.

Fulham loss is totally inexcusable but I’m not concerned about the loss today. We’re already through to the next round since last game. I’ve been concerned about our attack since our transfer window. When Vardy is not on (and keep in mind that he’s mostly a player that relies on his teammates creating chances for him). Barnes is good and will get better but that’s about it. Maddison has not regained his pre-injury form and we don’t have anyone else that’s even close to consistent. 
 

On defense, we’ve been missing 3 of our top defenders (Soyoncu and Pereira came back today, Castagne should be back shortly) plus Ndidi who is one of the top DMs in the league. I’m actually okay with our defense. Our backup fullbacks have been pretty good and Fofana has world class potential. Fuchs and Amartey looked okay as backups but unfortunately Evans hasn’t regained his form from last year.

 

so yeah, we need better attackers. Should have signed Ollie Watkins when we had the chance....

1st pic was a goal. 2nd ended with a tremendous header that hit the bar. 3rd 4 on 2 breakaway. And matchups like these happened several times. Lucky Zorya entire payroll is sub 10 million. A quality squad would have blown them out the water.

You might not have concern about the game. But that defense more than the offense was atrocious. Constantly out of place. Lagging behind. Couldnt cut off lanes. It was hard to tell what exactly what was wrong with them cause at times they looked clueless. Like that bottom pic. Says they were running 4-2-3-1. But constantly looked like a 3-4-3 with little to no help coming back at times. Hope yall get over this hiccup come Sheffield Sunday.

Lol we were starting Soyuncu who hadn’t played since October (and probably reinjured himself) and Pereira who hadn’t played in 9 months. Also, we started 50 year old Wes Morgan. Our defense isn’t the issue.

FOOTBALL'S FRONT LINE

Millwall: The surprising truth behind ‘England’s most feared club’

Millwall have a certain reputation among football fans, but is it still deserved?

Yeah, this post didn't age well, considering Millwall's fans just very audibly booed the players collectively kneeling in solidarity before kickoff.  "But they're just misunderstood..."

Yes. How dare they boo an American marxist terror organization.

Halftime vs Fulham. Man City allowed 0 shots. Last 4.5 games 18. With the subs allowed in while blowing out Burnley accounting for near half of the 18.

Defense and possession ability are incredible.

When they're not playing crucial games in Europe, for sure.

There are some valid points there, but Daily Mail readers and commenters aren't know for their...

 

You know what. Nevermind. They can try and solve racism all they want, but they can't.
