I am looking forward to seeing him in the PL, but he has the potential to push city on another level again. Not getting Kane last summer could be a blessing in diguise for them.

So letís look at this. Someone who can slot seamlessly between the no.8, no.9 and no.10 roles just as Guardiola would like, him having a track record for scoring and creating premier league goals at ratios only Mo Salah of current footballers can equate to, and is a grounded, committed footballer at peak age for a centre forward. Not getting this player is a blessing in disguise? So it makes room for a youngster who is about to become stinking rich, and has no PL experience?


The mind actually boggles at how underrated Kane is.

Kane doesn't score enough goals anymore.

Heís always had a pretty impressive habit at putting this one to bed soon after anyone says it.

Arsenal doing an Arsenal tonight. 2-0 down at half time and stupid sending off.

Tottenham have Burnley (H) Norwich (A) to play.  Arsenal with the tougher fixtures Newcastle (A) and Everton (H)

Arsenal should be winning both of those comfortably, making the Spurs' games irrelevant.  If they don't get CL from here, they don't deserve it.

As for Spurs, Conte's done a good job with them.  They'll be good next season, with a decent signing or two.  They won't get near the Pool/City duopoly, obviously,  but if they get Europa and take it seriously, they're good enough to challenge seriously for that.

Think Kane has lost a yard of pace. Seems to be playing deeper role in recent years.  His goals are not as prolific as other seasons in PL but has some amount of assists in last 2 years.

Ronaldo gets player of the month after scoring a hattrick against a relegated club.
Did he not also score against Arsenal and Chelsea? Just after losing a child as well. Would seem deserved enough to me.

Guardiola letting loose this last week or so in a few press conferences!!

He has a point though with the nonsense around "Managing big personalities". A complete load of horseshit.

His rant about Liverpool was OTT but he has to realise that neutrals are going to find it difficult to support a team that is propped up by a regime like the Emirates!

Is he voluntarily playing that role or is that the system he's playing in? Southgate played him in that role but Spurs seem to be doing that now too. Is it Conte or him?

So teams like Chelsea in the past Newcastle PSG and so on? Supporters are very fickle and will easily turn a blind eye to these types that are able to launder their money

Why bring Standard Chartered into this?

He's probably right in that neutrals are keen to slag off these teams as opposed to Man U or Liverpool because they do things "the right way".

Whatever that means...

Generally supporters of a club who are then taken over by some rich benefactor couldn't give two shiney shites who they are as long as the team plays well!

Nah, still doesn't score enough.  Used to be near a goal a game but past couple of years he has been way down on that.

He won the golden boot last season?

In 4th place this year too. Not doing too bad but I do think he is playing deeper.

Very quiet on FA cup day!

This is the second trophy out of 4 that Liverpool have a chance of winning

Chelsea have been generally inconsistent all season, think theyíll try and park the bus today, frustrate Liverpool and counter

Wouldnít be surprised with a 0-0 draw and penalties, thankfully Iím out and wonít see it ;D

Chelsea bate in last 2 finals law of averages says they wont lose a third. 6 0 Chelsea.

Hoping Kante/Kovacic not fully fit to counteract the loss of Fab. Chelsea have been poor recently but could have been savin themselves for this...
