Saturday football
ARSENAL vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (1500)
The league leaders have a chance to extend their lead as they host the impressive but flawed Wolves. Should be fairly routine unless O’Neil can work some magic. Home win.

BRENTFORD vs LUTON TOWN (1500)
Many people’s relegation favourites back in August, Luton have done really well to go into December out of the bottom three where they’ll remain whatever happens against Brentford. The Hatters have a drive and determination that will test their hosts but are unlikely to overcome them. Home win.

BURNLEY vs SHEFFIELD UNITED (1500)
A genuine six-pointer, even for December. Burnley have been better than their results would suggest, while the Blades have arguably been unlucky with some of their results. Blood, guts and gore on the menu at Turf Moor. Home win.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST vs EVERTON (1730)
Forest have done remarkably well in their ascent from the present realms of danger. That, in part, deepens Everton’s mire that’s already exacerbated by the 10-point penalty. The Toffees are five points from the dotted line, so this is the kind of game they have to win if they’re to stay up this season. But Forest’s home form has been their strength. Draw.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs MANCHESTER UNITED (2000)
There’s little to separate these two. Man U may be smarting from their midweek Euro capitulation and may be off their best for the visit to St James Park. This looks like a game worth watching. Draw.



*SUNDAY*

BOURNEMOUTH vs ASTON VILLA (1400)
Unai Emery is doing a fantastic job at Villa and it will take a lot for his opposite number, Andoni Iraola, to end today on the winning side. But after a shaky start to the season, Bournemouth have picked up some momentum and are sure to give Villa a game. Away win.

CHELSEA vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (1400)
The Seagulls recorded a fabulous win in Europe in midweek. With Chelsea, you just don’t know what you’re going to get. A stunning win one week, a shitstorm the next. The fence. Draw.

LIVERPOOL vs FULHAM (1400)
Pool in third at home to Fulham in 14th. What else can you say? Home win.

WEST HAM UNITED vs CRSYTAL PALACE (1400)
A win Thursday for us, but what a terrible game it was. On the plus side, Tomas Soucek is showing that he’s arguably at his most effective in or near the opposition penalty area. Palace have been a bit of a bogey team for us in recent seasons. There’s little to suggest that this is going to change any time soon. So heart it is then. Home win.

MANCHESTER CITY vs TOTTNEHAM HOTSPUR (1630)
This could and should be a cracker. After a casual dalliance with the league leadership, Spurs’ fortunes have taken a dip. For City, this should be straightforward. Home win.


*CHAMPIONSHIP*

Leicester and Ipswich continue their supremacy over the rest of the Championship, though the Tractor Boys may fancy their chances of taking over leadership today as they host Coventry (15th) while the Foxes visit West Brom (5th). The bottom three are as fixed in their positions as the top two are in theirs. After encouraging early-season form, Millwall’s progress has since been like a rock responding to gravity such that they now find themselves in 19th position. The main action focuses on the battle for a play-off place, with Leeds (3rd) taking on Boro (10th) and Cardiff’s (9th) visit to Southampton today’s picks.

Manuel, try not to worry about it.

Re: Saturday football
Villa are doing great. Good luck to them. Case study in how a manager with a good, progressive mindset can transform a team who were festering under one with no real ideas. Same with Newcastle.

I hope Steidten is watching very closely.

That sideways move for Rice hasn't worked out for him, has it?

Cheers Moyesie!

Arsenal PL Prize Money
1st £44 million (+£2.2 million)
2nd £41.8 million
3rd £39.6 million (-£2.2 million)
4th £37.4 million (-£4.4 million)

CL Prize Money
Winner £17.1m
Runner-up £13.25m
Semifinalists £10.69m
Quarterfinalists £9.06m
Round of 16 £8.21m
Group-stage wins £2.4m (=£16.8m if they win all 6 ties)
Group-stage draws £795k (=£4.8m if they draw all 6 ties)
Reaching group stage £13.37m

To be financially more successful that last term, Arsenal could finish 4th in the PL and just get to the Group Stage in the CL.

Haven't factored in what they won in Europe last season without Rice because I don't really give a fuck.

Manuel 6:20 Thu Dec 7
Re: Saturday football
Pagey - Nobody is saying he isn't are they, but such is your hard on for Rice you stated that 105 mil is an ''absolute bargain'' but unless Arsenal win the league then it's hard to see how you can justify saying that. That's the point here.

City stats today…

54% Possession

2 Attempts

2 on Target

Zero Corners

Guardiola clearly lost the plot…and is not infallible…clearly out manouevred by Emri…

Re: Saturday football
Whether Villa are ahead of us or not is immaterial, but they clearly have a better manager and its simply bizarre to imagine anyone arguing to the contrary.
I've not seen a more comprehensive 1-0 this season. That kind of performance for 97 mins against Man City to cap 14 successive home wins. If only.

Bunch of cunts, Wolves a few weeks ago and now Villa.

Fuck off

Re: Saturday football
Villa miles ahead of us now despite a similar spend last 2-3 years BUT it doesn’t matter because we won fuck all at Upton Park which is apparently the only way you’re allowed to judge Moyes

RBshorty 12:22 Thu Dec 7
Re: Saturday football
Hope Villa go on and do a Leicester. The thought of the Goon or Red Scouse winning the title is sickening.

Re: Saturday football
Since Villa went 1 up they've still been pressing for a second. Oh to have a progressive manager.

Pagey 12:17 Thu Dec 7
Re: Saturday football
Manuel, I really couldn’t give a shit. I think Rice is an exceptional footballer and will say that. Rather than pretending he wasn’t because he joined Arsenal.

Well. If Lucas doesn’t get a ban. That’s £85 million guaranteed come summer time.!

Villa giving it a real go against City deserve to be at least 1 up.

I wish Fulham's form hadn't picked up of late.

Manuel 7:15 Wed Dec 6
Re: Saturday football
Pagey - Your hard on for Rice is a bit cringe to be honest, but yes I worded it wrong, he has improved them in the respect that he is better than Partey and the Turkish bloke who has left, but if they finish second or below this season then he hasn't been the difference in that respect.
