Har, har. Regular Barrel O' Laughs you are.

If we can win the Champions' League we can win something as trivial as the Premier League.

I think that the league is done, truthfully. All we can hope for now is a repeat of last year where you guys were basically 10 points ahead at Christmas and dropped enough points. But you even beat Bournemouth this weekend, so it's looking grim.

Honest question, why did Arsenal loan out Mkhitaryan?

If I remember right, at the time the thought was with ceballos and pepe he was surplus to requirements, and they wanted his wages off the books

He took a pay cut as well from roma, so he was keen to go

Liverpool are signing Salzburg striker Takumi Minamino in January.

one of my favourite players. This is heartbreaking.

Chelsea are about to free fall out of the top 4.

Will be out of it by next week.

and all of a sudden, the fight for top 4 is wide open again. Also kudos to Eddie Howe ... always gets a result like that when he's under pressure.

Sheffield is having a hell of a season. Hats off.

I hope they do but teams are throwing out that kind of money for guys like Pepe and and randoms who look good in mid level leagues who might possibly be good in the prem (and then actually aren't). Zaha's proven and usually involved in a goal every week while getting triple teamed, he would destroy in a good team.

From what I've see a lot of other fans mix up their dislike of his perceived diving (which is bs anyway) with his talent. I think Palace will probably go down without him within a couple years even if it's a big fee. Irreplaceable player.

Really good game between Spurs/Wolves right now. It's 1-0 Spurs at halftime, but it's been a back and forth match with good chances for both sides. I wouldn't say it's wide open, but it's been pretty good.

As usual, I have no idea what constitutes a foul or penalty. Kane nutmegged a guy, and the guy clearly impedes him and I guess it's fine. I know people with say Kane went down too easy there, but we also know that if the player doesn't go down they don't get the call for sure. What do we expect a player to do in those situations? The officiating in general needs to encourage the kind of play we want to see, and IMO it just doesn't at this point.

Pretty much sums up the current state of Arsenal that maybe their best play of he season is a save to prevent going down 4-0 at halftime. Whoever takes over that mess is gonna need a while to sort it all out.

I think Freddie is doing great work there and he should be given more time. No need to panic. At least the remainder of this year and maybe the next. I think if they keep him around long enough he could get them into the top four...of the Championship!

Word is that Everton has named Ancellotti as new manager and he should be in charge this coming weekend.

Villa players actually celebrating beating up a bunch of 13 year olds is kinda embarrassing. I guess you can only beat who's in front of you.

Liverpool actually have more possession, more shot attempts, and more shots on target, but are down 4-0. A combination of luck and poor defending from Liverpool have made the score line look way more lopsided then the game has been.
