I think it's safe to say with 49 points from 17, City have one hand on the league title. Chelsea had seven points fewer in Mourinho's record breaking first season after 17 played, and I can't anticipate a Devon Loch-style collapse from here on in. City will lose in the league at some point, but w...

The risk of forcing a player to stay. Completely given up the ghost as an Arsenal player. He's not even trying.

I would be absolutely fuming if this was our club: - Their main 2 key players, just running out of contracts (and Jack Wheelchair's too) - A manager who no one really believes in. Probably also gone in the summer - 7th in the league - Not even taking Europa League seriously - Their biggest talent...

I think Pep and City's dominance will only be good for the league in terms of raising the standard of football and forcing the chasing teams to match the quality they've set this season. They've just won 15 matches on the bounce and will probably go the season unbeaten. I think this is really sim...

Just two league games ago Spurs were four points off the top four and looked in crisis. Now they're back in the top four on goal difference. Title is looking near enough sorted. United and Chelsea look good bets for second and third (though there's only four points separating third from fourth) b...

As per the title. Obviously we are not a selling club so you can pick player whose value at their peak while still play for us would be more than when we bought them. I would say De Gea, Smalling and Jones would be the last 3 we bought that their stocks have gone above what we initially paid for...

RedCafe.net - Wed Dec 13 7:27 PM
Goals and confidence go hand in hand. When the goals dry up, an attacking player loses confidence, which in turn makes it much harder for them to convert any opportunities they do end up getting. It's a vicious cycle. Not everyone can keep scoring at prolific rates throughout their careers, there...

This was the biggest gripe for me in the City game, without doubt, and I'm now concerned that we're gonna start seeing the back 4 again and that our performances will dip.

I remember that Pogba didn't play very often and people were surprised about that. I remember people were surprised when Pogba was sold. What was the reasons for that happening? That I don't remember.

Tomorrow's derby game at Old Trafford is set to be the biggest in PL history in terms of the squad value and global viewing figures and with City's viewing figures also said to be at an all-time high in the US, could we be overtaking the Spanish El Clasico as the biggest game in football? The las...

I believe the only retrospective diving ban to date has been handed out to Oumar Niasse of Everton. Surely there have been more incidents that have warranted retrospective action. Richarlison springs to mind. As does City with Sterling. And certainly Alvaro Morata's disgraceful showing today warr...

Been a running caf joke for a while about how we write off players once they turn 30, but off the top of my head, there does seem to be quite a dearth of leading players 30 or above at the moment. Perhaps 30+ players are starting to struggle more to keep up the pace? Who would be in your...

There's too many of you on here to PM, so I thought I'd ask here.

Seriously underrated, is Big Sam. Many a top scalp he's claimed or given a hell of a game. Can he get Everton's underachievers 3pts at Anfield?
