Football Season 2017/18

Long time Luton fan here, not able to get to St. James this afternoon but keeping my fingers crossed for a very sweaty couple of hours. We have been going well in the league but not a good afternoon to have both our central defenders out (one injured, one sent off last week - very contentious but will try & let it go). So maybe Rafa will be over confident & take it for granted but come on you hatters!....if it goes bad I am hoping that it is not too bad. But....we could do it....

Meannwhile VvD scores the winner in the FA Cup derby at Anfield on his debut. You couldn't make it up. What do you mean, 'Chris, just let it go!' ? 

Chris,

VvD has only joined us so he’ll then be more likely to be spotted by Barcelona.

I wish good luck to the Hatters, Paul. I know one or two passionate Luton fans. TV is reporting that 8000 of them have travelled to St James for today's cup-tie. Very impressive for almost any club but especially for one from League Two.

thanks! looks like we will need it, watching live text & 2-0 down already so mountain to climb and we don't seem to have created much

Sad to hear today that former Liverpool and Scotland goalkeeper Tommy Lawrence has died at the age of 77. He was affectionately known to fans as “the flying pig” on account of his agility despite his heavy build and was a mainstay of the Livrrpool team of the 60s until  being replaced by Ray Clemence.

R.I.P. Tommy.

Anyone have any Hotel recommendations near the New Spurs Stadium?  My beloved (American)Football team will be playing at the new stadium next fall.

Tottenham's stadium is located in one of the least attractive areas of London. The place is a dump. You'd be better off staying somewhere else, unless you have a hankering for kebab shops.

Pleased to see the Cherries get a much needed win today. As for the Gunners, a champions league slot looks a forlorn hope at the moment.

Listened to the radio commentary of the Liverpool/Man City game this afternoon. Very exciting and a credit to the PL. I don't think it will affect City taking the title but it will be interesting to see how they respond to a first defeat.  Liverpool under Klopp are an entertaining side to watch these days.  

Yes, great Cherries result.

Meanwhile Saints' woes continue with a 2-2 after having been two up at half-time.

My understanding is that the club is now 80% owned by Mr Gao and 20% by Katharina Liebherr. Mr Gao bought the 80% from Ms Liebherr, who has formed a great friendship with his daughter, Nellie. How Mr Gao must wish that Nellie just wanted a pony like the other girls.

From the 'Fan Matrix' in today's i paper, WHU fan Joe Light wrote, "After [we] terrier-ised Huddersfield Town on the road last weekend, it's time to pop the Cherries this weekend".

Thought you might enjoy that Kev.

Saints fan Nick Roberts fears a "Kane Bloodbath". He's not alone.

Chris

Wish your Saints Good luck with Spurs this afternoon.Its going to be tough as Erickson - Song - Deli are all capable of scoring as well as Kane.Enjoy if your going.

Nice City win against Newcastle and it was good to see Burnley give United a game.Sean Dyche is doing a great job there.It seems weired that Theo Walcott is no longer an Arsenal player but maybe he was getting a bit stale there and just welcomed a new challange .

It will be interesting what Sanchez brings to United.A good buy but 400 k a week....ah the modern game its dripping in money.

Thanks Ian. I think we may have a chance of an upset if we tie all their laces together first

Well, Chris, a valuable point against high-flying Spurs. I suspect you're pleased with that.

Absolutely. We were well up for it. The Saints paradox is that we can play well against City, Utd, Spurs but still get beaten at home by Leicester etc. And I mean no disrespct to Leicester when I say that.

Massive game for Southampton tonight with Brighton.Hope they get the three points.Brighton can't score but can defend.

Well pleased with  the Swansea revival with Carvahal he's got them believing again.

City at home to W.B.A .....City home win is my prediction but I am a little bit biased.

West Ham was a good result with Palace especially with their injuries at the moment.Just grinding out the points.Good work Hammers.Think United will win against Spurs.
