    We've beaten the likes of Spurs and Arsenal at home and had Chelsea hanging on away ... you've scraped past Southampton and Villa whilst we've hammered both ... you should win the league Asstro... but you are obviously starting to **** yourself <laugh>

    And that's not good enough to challenge for the title. #nailedon top 4 though.

    They're not challenging for the title, it's yours to lose. If you don't win it then it's a bottle job.of Tottenham like proportions.

    They're our main challengers and playing some good football, certainly not a team to knock. I love your Liverpool or nothing attitude but I've got a bit more respect for this Leicester team, Boxing Day could be interesting. If we can beat Watford and then Leicester we'll take some stopping.

    I respect them enough not to give false platitudes. Their weakness is the top 7. They play us and City in the next couple of weeks so let's see if they improve on that.

    Anything can be a weakness when you twist the stats to suit your point <doh>

    What have I twisted? Even Man Utd have a better record against the top 7 than you.

    Doesn’t help when you get the standard penalty dive against you at Anfield and Old Trafford does it?
    Anyway, we aren’t even in the title race, it’s a one horse race, if your ridiculous club bottle it then you deserve all the **** you’ll get. You won’t bottle it though as the league and refs association are guiding you to the title

    You've had as many penalties as us this season.

    Difference being ours have been actual fouls. See the Vardy one in the week, no way Mane or Rashford for that matter would not have got that. the stats I prefer are, best defence in the league, either best or second best attack (not sure if we overtook Man City today or not and can’t be arsed to check), not lost a game without it being from a pen and not conceded from any set piece

    You have the best goal difference in the league now mate, credit to your team, entertaining to watch and a proper unit.. I would say better than the team that won the title..<ok>

    I don’t think many neutrals would argue that we have been the most entertaining side, helps that Man City have dropped off mind. Just enjoying it whilst it lasts :emoticon-0148-yes:

    Credit to Brenda tbf. Can’t say I was a massive fan when he was at Liverpool, as I thought he was largely riding the wave created by having one of the top players in the World at that time i.e. that **** Suarez.

    Then he went to a 2 team pub league when it was a 1 team pub league and surprisingly won everything.

    But he’s doing a cracking job so far at Lesta, they’re a very good side under him, and he has to be given the credit for that.

    So let me just see if I have this correct
    Didn’t like him when he was at Liverpool
    Not arsed when he went to Celtic
    But don’t mind him now he is at Leicester and providing serious competition to Liverpool’s title bid.
    Just so I have all my facts - how did you view his time at Swansea lmao
    Ironically I never made my mind up on him at LFC didn’t blame him for the Palace result but never made my mind up lol

    Who you hoping for - do you think Big Dunc can nail the job ? looked good against Chelsea
    So much heart and passion - were you there ?
