    How many of your wumsters still believe that United will finish above Spurs?

    At this rate, they won't even finish above Arsenal.

    I think they have a decent chance despite doing a Spuds earlier.

    Still plenty of time for Spurs to do their annual meltdown at the run in.

    I still think United may finish above the Spuds.

    Good Call <ok>

    Seven points behind and a game in hand my money is firmly on Jose. The game at the **** pit on the 13th of May will be damning.

    Mr Marks, if Spurs beat United, will you finally admit that it's now Spurs who are your only real rival?

    That has been the case for about a month.
    They were also Leciesters only rival last season.
    Still didnt stop them finishing third behind the Goons.

    Nope! You've never been a rival never will but you won't beat United nor will you finish above them this year Mr Gimp.

    Well, Mr Marks, we will see.

    I know that you will be man enough to apologise for your rashness, should Spurs finish above United.

    It's good that we're putting our former differences behind us and moving on.

    Either is possible.
    Its just that United have an experienced manager and experienced players like Zlatan and Rooney who are used to the business end of the season.
    Maybe Spurs will have matured.
    But in recent years they have shown that when the end is in sight, they crumble.

    2012 and last season were both good examples of Spurs being in a good position then having a deltmown. It didnt cost you all that much last season, bar bragging rights against the Arse.
    But in 2012 it cost you a champions League place.

    Wasn't there another instance where they ****ed it up a while back and blamed it all on food poisoning? a dodgy lasagne or something?

    Absolutely Gimp I'll apologise when you apologise for all your wrong predictions. As you know I'm a firm advocate of burying the hatchet.....maybe one day? <whistle>

    We've drawn at home to Stoke, Burnley, Liverpool and 10 man Bournemouth.

    Doesn't inspire confidence that we're going to turn over all of the better teams that we still have to play.
