West Ham vs West Brom was such a good game, glad I watched it. West Brom were unlucky to win, Berahino hit the post with a cracking free kick. He's looking like a right good player, his hold up play and movement is top class. A point a piece sort of suits me because neither will start pulling away and as long as West Ham aren't winning their home games I'm not too scared.

Norwich are battering Man Utd, who look nervous, like they have for a lot of the season. A couple good pieces of play from Norwich but not the best of matches. :(

Fulham really need to up it in the second half, otherwise we'll go home empty handed.

So it's 4-0

I know Hull are pretty good at home but this just isn't acceptable.

Even Huddlestone's getting a haircut now.

Huddlestone scored? Nooooooo lol

Btw

Hope you can do Liverpool a favour, we need someone to drop points after boxing day, and definitely need something against Chelsea.

Said this on another forum to Liverpool fans before the City game; you should aim for a point. Mourinho has played for the draw against the big teams all season. Getting fourth would be a great achievement for you this season and could keep Suarez at the club.

I agree. I'd like to say it's winnable, but you're right about how mourinho's playing it. Might get lucky and nick it, but I'd take a point. We also don't have the depth to keep up with city, chelsea or arsenal, so I'd take fourth tbf.

I think the big difference for you this year is that you're beating the smaller teams that you were drawing with before with the likes of Henderson and Sturridge stepping up. Coutinho whilst inconsistent can be very good and Suarez is Suarez lol

Sahko's been a bit of a waste though, £18m is ridiculous.

Huddlestone's goal celebration should be added to FIFA15 tbh

Agree with your first point, but i don't agree about Sakho. It's probably too much money, but everyone said the same about henderson last year. Give him a bit of time I think.

True but I think Henderson was always a signing for development whereas Sahko was bought to immediately improve the squad. Granted he does need acclimatisation time but I don't think he did enough in France to justify the price tag (then again we got Yanga-Mbiwa who was incredible in Ligue 1 and yeah...)

Still think you'd be better off starting Agger, I rate him highest of your CBs.

I disagree, Sakho was bought partly as an immediate improvement simply because you need a centreback at a certain level, but he's still young. He's looked good apart from a tendency to make stupid mistakes, but tbf it seems most of our defence has been doing that so far this season. I also rate agger, but iirc he's ill or coming back from illness.

I'm liking the look of that Flanagan boy, hope he gets more game time.

Walsall beaten on Boxing Day, no change there then.

If I was a Cardiff fan I'd start boycotting. Vincent Tan has too many expectations and guaranteed he'll fire the next bloke who doesn't get them into the top four.

Malky McKay gets the team promoted to the Prem AND makes an FA Cup final. Yes, £35m is a lot of cash, but for a newly promoted side Cardiff are doing well. There's no need. Too many clubs are quick to sack managers.

Whilst I agree with that to an extent I'd understand if it was say £10m but £18m is a huge amount. Next season will be huge for him depending on what you achieve this year

Massive day today, my hope has led me to use a £5 free bet on us to win 2-1 D:
