Re: Liverpool or city to win

I fancy Liverpool now. Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolves is a dream set of fixtures whereas City could conceivably drop points to Spurs, United or Leicester. Personally I'd be buzzing if they did it. City's owners are a stain on football and I'm a massive fan of Klopp. They're more excitin...

Re: If we stay up now ..

Yes it's been a success, but I would say we've been lucky.

We were so bad during the first half of the season that we probably deserve to go down, and most o...

Re: Today's football

I'm not sure why people are whinging about transfer windows. We're in this mess because of Dyche's awful team selections for the first half of the season, not because we didn't sign Jay Rodriguez or whoever.

We'll be fine by the way. With the exception of the Newcastle match we've been playing well.
