No trophies for top at Xmas - Festive FOOTIE thread

In the last 10 seasons, 8 of the 10 teams to be top of the table at Christmas went on to win the league. The other 2 were Liverpool.

Through 18 games Liverpool are top on Christmas 2018/19, 4 points clear of Man City who everyone (?) believe will win the league again in the end.
Spurs can pull within 1 point of city with a win tomorrow.
Chelsea fall 11 points adrift with a shock loss at home today. United were buoyed by the sacking of Jose and crushed Cardiff today 5-1 but can they overcome this deficit to finish top 4?
Don’t look now but Dave’s Saints have won 2 on the bounce under new management to be 3 clear of relegation.
Fulham and Huddersfield will surely go down, they are horrible. Hopefully Burnley will as well because they are a #$!&@ team, but I suspect they’ll survive at Cardiff’s expense.
I’m sticking with my preseason pick of Wolves to get a Europa spot, assuming 7th place will do it.
Still a 5 teams for top 4 race unless United can catch fire.

Tons of games for us to enjoy over these 2 weeks. Champions League is off till mid February but there are some tasty ties to look forward to.

I just told this factoid to my family before reading this post. They didn't really care.

yeah, the change in mood was palpable. and pogba, that guy mou loved to put on the bench, was excellent.


occam's razor, when considering Pogba's performance at the WC, is that Mou is a horrible manager and Pogba was being criminally misused.

Spurs can actually move ahead of City with a win today.

TAA Lovren VVD Robbo
Hendo Gini

Firmino has been really really poor today.
Can’t figure why Klopp doesn’t sub him out.

He listens to me! Danny on.

Poor Bobby, surely he would have scored that if he were in.

Wish they’d change over to the City game.
