    You're well placed for the Jan-May trophy. That is true.

    At this moment Chelsea are first and that's it.

    Hopefully Utd will get a draw vs them and make it interesting.

  4. Ah, that's a shame.

    No need for bitterness.

  5. I want United to win, Luvvy!

    If Mourhino cannot muster a win against a team that he managed and knows inside-out, United are truly ****ed under him.

    I would like a draw for Liverpool related reasons.

    Not bitter at all. Not sure what I'm even meant to be bitter about. I'm very impressed with the team he's built but being the best team from January is meaningless, sadly.

  9. It would, if you looked at it through wum-tinted specs, mate.

    Pogba out of the Manchester derby. Presumably he has a hair cut appointment that clashes....

    No not at all Tyler personally I want to prolong your fleeting hopes as long as possible but it would be funny though as Im sure you'll agree.

    Spurs might be catching up with Chelsea but they will bottle it

    hope so. As everyone will agree, it is our Defense & not Spuds who stand between us & the title.

    The title is yours to lose, and given the quality of your squad and the spending power you have, for us to be so close at this stage of the season is very pleasing as a spurs fan. If Chelsea and Man City were to play to their full potential over the course of a season then one of them should always be winning the league IMO

    Ultimately our form is just prolonging the inevitable. Chelsea have the easiest run in they could of hoped for and a 4 point lead with 5 to go.

    TBH, we are more close to you than the Moneybags Manchester teams with respect to spending / investment in the squad.
    In that sense, Conte & co have exceeded all the expectations. Better than Poch & Co who have worked on it for last 3 years.

    Under poch we have improved year on year. Unfortunately for us we didn't play like this last season as we would have pissed the league.

    I think the semi final proved that we need to strengthen our squad. You had the option to bring on costa, we had Janssen! For Hazard read Sissoko! Not great really. Despite all the wumming, I'll feel no shame in coming 2nd to this Chelsea team.

    As for Conte exceeding expectations, like I said, if Chelsea play to their potential then you will always be there and there abouts. Fair play to him for finding the right formation and making a couple quality signings, most notably Kante. £32m wasn't it?and we paid £30m for Sissoko.....baffling!
