    Proud of that performance. Utd weren't very good at all, but we had our gameplan and took our chance when it came. Wolves almost thought they were the talking point of the weekend, but there's only one Black Country side stealing the headlines tonight.

    It's a result that's fused with anger because I've seen it today under Moore and the two games Gary Megson was in charge of when Pulis was sacked that this team can be good when they want to be and at the very least should be right in the mix for the battle for survival, not 9 points adrift. Moore already has the same amount of wins as Pardew. Pardew should never get a job in top flight football again after that disgraceful, clueless stint in charge. Ben Foster's comments after the match might as well of been a Kayfabe Commentaries shoot on Alan Pardew. Happy for J-Rod, seemed like having his name cleared this week of racism charges took a lot of pressure off him and played like a man happy to get back to matters on the pitch.

    For those not familiar with Moore and why we love him, he scored the goal that won us promotion in 2002 that transformed the clubs fortunes. Very interested to see how he gets on these last 4 games because we've lacked unity all season and he seems to be a man who is getting the lads to work together and fight for pride if nothing else.

    Congrats to City.

    nice win by West Brom. And good work, Newcastle.

    Honestly, not surprised or even all that annoyed by the Arsenal loss. Just predictable. Mustafi is the most two-faced defender I think I've ever seen - capable of being imperious in some matches, and absolutely atrocious in the next. We have zero away points in 2018. Its mid-April. That's ridiculous for a "top" side. Yet I'm more convinced than ever we won't see a manager change this summer.

    Peter Crouch is flat out great on it. He seems like a solid geezer.

    lolarsenal. Would love to see Burnley finish above them now (legit didn't realise they are only 2 points behind them)

    Incredible how so many managers over the years have been sacked for much less and yet Wenger is still able to keep his job.

    The funny thing is that there are still those who chastise Gooners for any Wenger Out sentiment and call us ungrateful, etc. Not sure how anyone is able to deny the obviousness of the decline at this point.

    So many of us have gone past anger and frustration to a point of resigned indifference. I'm not even sure there is going to be a lot of genuine outrage this summer when Wenger stays and probably gets a further contract extension.

    That deserves a 20 point deduction on it's own

    7 changes from Jose for this game. Very pacey front 3...lack of pace and creativity in the midfield 3 and two full backs who are probably out on their arse come summer...which is unfortunate for Shaw as he's a lot better than Jose gives him credit for.

    Not relegated just yet~

    Klopp really is the worst loser in the league. Shitting all over our comeback with 'the pitch was too dry' and calling the result 'a waste of points'. Get fucked. Can take Pool into the champions league semis but can't beat Albion in 3 attempts this year.

    Again, Moore did really well and we might of saved ourselves if we sacked Pardew a month earlier.

    Fucking West Brom and their dry pitch, couldn't just lay down and take it in the ass like you guys have done all season could ya Ed.

    Poor result at a bad time considering top 4 still isn't a lock for us but it is what it is.

    Arsene Wenger’s farewell starts in a big 4-1 win. I just watched the highlights. We left it late but we got the win. Good way to prepare for our big EL game against Atletico Madrid for Thursday.

    Watched Wenger’s post match conference, I felt sad watching this. Lacazette’s done well since returning from injury. Scored a brace today so we need him to be on top form against Atletico.

    Looks like Salah has won the player of the year award with Sane picking up the young player of the year award.

    Hard to argue with both those calls. Obviously I’m happy for Salah but I’m equally as happy that Sane got the young player of the year award, thought they would shit the bed and give it to Kane.

    Re: Premier League 2017/18 Discussion Thread

    Oxlande-Chamberlin out for the rest of the season. That's tough for both Liverpool and England to have to take - Ox has developed tremendously throughout the season and I defenitely feel that had he come to Chelsea he wouldn't have became as good as he was now since he would of likely been put in a wing-back role where he didn't want to play.

    (Realised that this should be in the General Football Discussion my bad, if it could be moved that would be great )

    Re: Premier League 2017/18 Discussion Thread

    Fits here too.

    I'm amongst those who think Ox has made really progress this season. I don't pay close attention to every Liverpool match, but the eye test made me think he's been more effective on a consistent basis. But weirdly, his stats are almost exactly the same as last season with Arsenal. Dunno if the eye test is lying or the stats don't tell the whole story. But goals, assists, pass percentage, tackle rate.... almost all the same. I don't see him running balls out of play instead of passing or crossing as much.... but I'm not sure he's not still doing that lol

    I've said before, but I hold no ill will toward him and its disappointing to see him go down with this. I've seen a few Gooners lash out over the season, but there really doesn't seem to be that much of it, considering he moved to a rival club. I feel like he conducted himself fairly well, and while he was ABSOLUTELY FUCKING AWFUL in his final Arsenal match against Liverpool, he absolutely 100% should never have been in the squad for that match, let alone starting.

    Re: Premier League 2017/18 Discussion Thread

    Usually I look forward to Arsenal vs Man Utd but this time I don’t care if we put out a reserve side and lose. We failed to capatalise on last night’s EL game and the draw felt like a loss. The 2nd leg against Atletico next week is the main priority so I don’t care if Arsenal get thrashed by Man Utd on Sunday.

    The relegation battle will go down to the wire. Last season, Crystal Palace (14th) and Swansea (15th) finished on 41 Pts. Burnley (16th) and Watford (17th) finished on 40 Pts. The three teams that went down to the Championship were Hull (18th) 34 Pts, Middlesborough (19th) 28 Pts and Sunderland (20th and now heading to League One) 24 Pts.

    40 points is usually the magic points total to stay in the Premier League. This season 37 points should be enough to survive or even possibly 36. Let's just sat 37 to be on the safe side.

    Who are safe: I predicted Newcastle to go down this season, glad they stayed up. They are likely to finish in the top 10. Bournemouth and Watford are on 38 points but Southampton and Stoke won’t catch them up so they’re safe. West Brom aren’t relegated yet but they’re going down. Two more spots to be filled so here’s my thoughts on the seven clubs for the race for survival.

    13: Brighton (36 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Burnley (A)
    Man Utd (H)
    Man City (A)
    Liverpool (A)

    Brighton are almost over the line. Their remaining matches are against teams in the top half of the table. Can’t see Brighton getting any more points. One more point should be enough and their best chance to escape the drop is the game against Burnley. The maximum points Southampton and Stoke are likely to take from their run in are 6 so Brighton have probably done enough to stay up.
    Verdict: Staying up

    14: Crystal Palace (35 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Leicester (H)
    Stoke (A)
    West Brom (H)

    Palace had the worst ever start to the PL(7 games without a win and failed to score a goal) and Roy Hodgson is likely to keep them up. I’d like to see either Crystal Palace or West Ham going down with Stoke because I want Swansea and Southampton to stay up. Palace have no top six sides left to play. They have Championship bound WBA on the final day of the season. Palace will probably get 3-4 points from their final three games so that should be enough for another season in the top flight.
    Verdict: Staying Up

    15: West Ham (35 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Man City (H)
    Leicester (A)
    Man Utd (H)
    Everton (H)

    West Ham just need one more win to survive. A point may be enough as I can’t see Southampton and Stoke getting over 35 points so West Ham aren’t going down.
    Verdict: Staying up

    16: Huddersfield (35 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Everton (H)
    Man City (A)
    Chelsea (A)
    Arsenal (H)

    Brighton and Huddersfield staying up in their first season in the Premier League is a success. Can’t see Huddersfield winning any of their remaining games so that win last week against Watford was a big result. Might be enough for survival but a point in their next game against Everton would seal another season in the league. Think it’s going to go till the last day of the season for Huddersfield to guarantee safety.
    Verdict: Staying up on the last day of the season.

    17: Swansea (33 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Chelsea (H)
    Bournemouth (A)
    Southampton (H)
    Stoke (H)

    Swansea are four points above the drop zone. It’s in their hands now. Would like to see them survive and one more win could get them over the line. They won’t get anything against Chelsea so it comes down to Swansea’s final three games which could go either way. Cardiff might get promoted so it would be interesting to see both Cardiff and Swansea battling it out in the Premier League. Swansea have home advantage for their final two games for the relegation six pointers but somehow I think they will bottle it. Stoke vs Swansea on the last day of the season(if Stoke aren’t relegated by then) is probably the most important game that day as the winner stays up, loser goes down.
    VERDICT: RELEGATION

    18: Southampton (29 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Bournemouth (H)
    Everton (A)
    Swansea (A)
    Man City (H)

    Time is running out for Southampton.
    The gap is going to be hard to close. They haven’t won since February. They need to pick up points and hope the teams above them slip up. They need to be safe before they play Man City on the last day of the season. It will go down to the final day of the season. Can’t see a great escape from Southampton and they will probably get 4 points which won’t be enough.
    VERDICT: RELEGATION

    19: Stoke City (29 Pts)
    Remaining games
    Liverpool (A)
    Crystal Palace (H)
    Swansea (A)

    Stoke haven’t won since Paul Lambert’s first game in charge in January and they have a poor goal difference. They are four points adrift with three games left. To stand a chance to survive they really need to win all their remaining games instead of drawing. Their next game is against Liverpool and Salah’s incredible form could damage Stoke’s goal difference. I want Stoke to get relegated but I think they will win their final two games to stay in the league. Defeats in their next two matches or even a point against Palace would end Stoke’s survival hopes regardless of Swansea’s results.
    VERDICT: STAYING UP ON THE FINAL DAY OF THE SEASON

    Prediction: Swansea, Southampton to join West Brom in the Championship next season.

    Will never hear the end of it if Newcastle are the team to relegate us.
