    @Low Ki your 8 points off us and 7 points off CL after only 12 games. You clearly seem to be prioritising cups over the league, it would take a significant change for you to be good enough I get too 4 along with our ability dropping enough not to stay in it.

    So yes, as we’ve both said, unless something significant changes, you will irrelevant when it comes to Sancho. Really not sure why your trying to start an argument.

    I mean first of all 8 pts isn’t crazy by any means and secondly and more importantly, if we’re prioritizing cups, winning the Europa League could make us players.

    8 points isn’t crazy, and I’m not by any means saying it can’t happen, as I’ve said all along something would have to change for it to happen, even if you manage to continue your form of the last 3/4 games you’d still likely need us to drop off to catch up, and that’s a big if you continue your form.

    And yeah I take your point about Europa, but your still 6/1(first bookies I looked at) with good enough teams like Arsenal/Sevilla/Wolves amongst others in the competition too, so again winning it is a long way off.

    Probability right now says you likely won’t get CL next year, that’s all my point really was.

    Could see Inter dropping from CL and becoming favorites to win Europa League.

    Well yeah that’s another point too, those Europa league teams and odds aren’t factoring in who drops from CL either, Chelsea/Ajax/Valencia would all prove decent opposition too

    Also, United are actually 10 points off us. So while far from impossible to make up, it’s a pretty significant difference.

    That's not only defeatist but making a mountain out of a molehill.

    We both have 78 points up for grabs from our remaining 26 fixtures. Apparently a 10 point deficit is impossible despite the premier league being full of regular examples where 10+ point deficits are turned on their heads within 2 month windows.

    I get you love to (poorly) trash talk for giggles, but try thinking a bit harder before telling people the sky is falling.

    Unless I’m missing it, I don’t think anyone said it was impossible.

    You're making this point difference out like we're in April with time running out and our backs against the wall. Nothing is ever constant in this sport and situations always change. Even going back a couple months both our teams were putting out drastically different performances.

    It's naive and arrogant to assume current form is going to decide how the season closes. This goes for any team, it's not exclusive to Chelsea and United.

    Nah I give up, I’ve explained time and time again, if you still can’t grasp what I’m saying you never will.

    CHO was pretty bad, he kept giving the ball away. Don't know about any others.

    Yeah I heard as much, Tomori got his Debut at least, although he really deserved to start one of the games imo

    1 goal and 1 assist in the League, with 6 starts and 1 sub appearance.

    Pretty woeful.

    This Spurs news is great, what makes it even better are the Mourinho links.

    Seriously though, I like the guy but if Jose does go there then he is dead to us. Managing United is one thing, Spurs is different story.

    I mean you already called him Judas as a fanbase so I think that relationship is long dead.

    He's still their greatest manager of all time and the manager that put them on the map.

    Couldn’t disagree more.
    Still love Jose, one of if not the greatest managers of all time, would happily have him back if were ever in need of a manager.

    Odds on Willian to join Jose at Tottenham for free in the summer?

    Reports say that we have already offered Willian a new contract, but he hasn’t agreed to it yet. Could he have been waiting for Jose to find a new club? Also rumors that Barcelona still want Willian.

    Whilst he has been good this season, I think it would be best if Willian leaves so we can move on.

    Agreed. Willian and Pedro out. Sancho in.

    Odds on Spurs to fly in Willian to London from somewhere, have a medical then Chelsea sign a new contract with him?

    Same issue with us and Ole but atleast neither of us have to worry about his passive aggressive commentary anymore about Ole's mannerisms or Lampard's tactics in big matches.
