It is a raw deal and of course you are right, the fans are treated with contempt by the powers that be. As long as the TV money continues to pour in neither the FA, or indeed the EFL as they are as stupid, or the broadcasters will put the fans first. I suppose that whilst clubs are raking in over £100m a year from TV money, the clubs themselves won’t be moaning too hard either

Ederson
Walker Kompany Laporte Danilo
Delph
Sterling KDB Merlin Sane
Jesus

I'm not convinced all these are fit but if they are then I would start that. Bernard on at half time.

Sadly i think we will lose.

We are kmackered, deflated and mising Aguero and Fernandinho.

Our best defensive midfielder who is irreplaceable in our squad coupled with Tottenham being a very good side means I am dreading the match. Would definitely take a draw now. Think we will win our last 5 games to take us to 99 or 100 points depending if we draw today.

Agreed. Drop Sanè. He’s been gash for the past 3 games and needs to realise he can’t suddenly become coward of the year and still start every match.

Ah hang on mate ffs. He's been double marked and all of our attacks were being sent over to his side. We've been too dependant on him for the last four games in particular.
And in that time he scored twice and set 3 goals up.

Yes, one he scored and one he set up were ruled out, but incorrectly ruled out.

2 goals and 3 assists in 4 games is not cowardly or gash Liam. I know you hate the lad, but make it a bit more realistic ;)
Something could get pretty rotten in the state of Swampland. . . it could just turn out even better than a particularly gory episode of "I, Claudius".

He’s been missing on the whole mate. You can’t deny that surely? You can say he did one or two things - Adebayor waiting until 80 minutes before pulling his finger out most matches. In general he was lazy. I don’t think Sanè is lazy, I do think he’s gone in to hiding a lot the past three matches.

Also, I don’t hate him. He plays for City.

Fair enough, hate is probably too strong a word to use, maybe dislike?

Anyway, from what I saw he was probably more involved than any other attacking player over the last few games. He hit brick walls and made some poor decisions, don't get me wrong, but I totally disagree that he went hiding.

Fuck it, let's just beat this cunts this evening and all will be well with the world :)

Maybe he has, call it a learning curve. He's still young and with time he'll become more imposing. I have a feeling he will become one of best in the world down the line. There is talk of bringing in Leon Bailey next season to challenge him and Srerling. No one will be resting on their laurels next season.

I wonder if he is any relation to Dennis Bailey? I watched him score a great hat-trick once.

No relation. Great hat trick that Dennis scored. Last away player to score a hat trick at the swamp and be on the winning side
