      Thanks to Shitty and Brighton, Spurs have 1 point from 2 games and 2 points behind us. Hope Chelsea and Scums lose their mid week games as well.

      The Spuds ?

      If you have one foot on one stool    .....the League

      and on the other .....the FA Cup 

      then you end up pissing in the middle.


      That did us no harm this evening . Thanks Seagulls.

      Gutted Kane scored, now he he is 4 behind Mo.

      Hope Mo starts on Saturday and is taken off at HT after a quick fire hat-trick.

      Brighton were in fact terrible, very little quality. Spurs didn't dive so they didn't win. But in truth it was pathetic performance. They couldn't beat a very mediocre Brighton.

      Wenger going at the end of the season. Been a fantastic manager for them. Many trophies, made players great, put together some great teams.

      My advice is to appoint Tony Adams...he could make the club a mid table club inside 6 months..

      Just learned something this morning. The CL final will be played this year during Ramadan. We have 3 Muslim players - Can, Mane & Salah.

      They will have to be fasting for the 10 days leading up to and including the CL final date.

      The fasting is during daylight hours. A meal is eaten before sunrise and after sunset.

      Technically, there is no  drinking during those 15 hours, either. NONE.

      But a number of Muslim athletes (Mo Farah comes to mind) seem to get permission, when food and hydration are essential, to eat and drink normally and make up for the missed time later on. They also might give more to charity or something like that. Don't know exactly what Mo has planned, but I am officially not worrying about this beginning now. :-)

      It is a serious concern for Salah and for all Muslims who are professional sportsmen and women. I mentioned on here the other day that Peter Knowles, a great striker for Wolves gave up the game for religious reasons. So we have to respect whatever Salah and others decide. May be they will ask for special permission to suspend their fasting. But it will obviously be their decision.

      Also gutted for Alex Ox. Terrible injury. Misses the World cup as well. Just getting into it for us. Reestablishing his career after losing his way a bit at Arsenal. Hope he come back to full strength next season.

      As I say, me worrying about won't help anything - and there is precedent for athletes to make arrangements.

      "An imam [a Muslim religious leader] told me that, for each of the 30 days I didn't fast, I'd need to fast for a month as penance," the rower recalls.

      Unwilling to spend two and half years only eating in darkness, Sbihi searched for an alternative in the scriptures.

      He discovered - via a cousin in Tangiers and a chance conversation with feted middle-distance runner Hicham El Guerrouj, who also missed fasts during his glittering career - that the Koran would permit him to feed 60 poor people every day for 30 days instead.

      He paid for 1,800 meals at a cost of £3,000.

      "It's a large sum of money and I'd love to have it back, but knowing why I spent it makes me happy," he says. "It felt important.

      "I gave a cheque to a charity called Walou4us, which helps street kids in North Africa, and cash to my family in Morocco to spread about to those who needed it most, because those people would be more likely to accept it from them."

      That actually seems a hell of a lot more sensible than starving yourself for 30 days. If all muslims did this we could wipe out world hunger, at least for a month :-)

      We won’t be getting any favours from Swansea they are 1 down already plus Cjelsea and Conte seem to have found their form again.

      Would be funny if we finished 5th and won the Cup.

      I think we’ll make the final but will spent come the game at Chelsea so will need to win the final game of the season at home to Brighton.

      We dont want to be playing the final with any further pressure. Honestly if we somehow find a way to start next season in the Europa League the footballing world would piss themselves laughing at us.

      We've fu**ed it up so far getting 3 points from 9 against sh*t like Everton, West Brom and Stoke. Theres still a lot that would have to go wrong to not finish 4th with Chelsea having to have won 6 in a row and us having to lose to Chelsea and fail to beat Brighton.

      From jubilation after 75 mins against Roma to this uneasy feeling I have now has been a real 180.

      Worth noting (if ive got this right) that serial bottlers Spurs (the only team to finish 3rd in a 2 horse race) also have to win alot of their games too to keep us out.

      We are not reliant on others. Its still very much in our own hands, even if we f**k up at the Bridge. We beat Brighton and we are through. It was the same situation last year and we did it by a point. This year, may be due to a better GD.

      But who f**king cares. 4th is 4th and unlike last time, this time we might be in a CL final by the time we finish 4th in the league!

      Roma won their games last week and this week, probably resting players in the process. They're also looking to secure qualification for next season, and were their games any more difficult than ours?

      This should have been wrapped up weeks ago. So we really could put all our energies into what's left of the European campaign. If we could destroy City in 3 games, West Brom and Stoke should have been a walk in the park. Instead we'll probably have to face Brighton with a full strength team to finally get over the line.

      We have just got to go to the Bridge and   hit the chavs hard and quick. There is no room left for error now. It's simple if we beat them we are in the top 4 wether it's 3rd  or 4th it doesn't matter. The Roma game will take care if itself, we'll either go to the final or not. What we don't want is going to the final and having that pressure of if we don't win the CL we won't be in it next year. We've got a job to do domestically, which should have been done and dusted by now but it is what it is. Our injury list isn't helping either but our management team are paid well to deal with these situations. So it's bottom line is beat Roma then beat the chavs and we're home and dry.

      There is like 14 days between the Brighton game and the Cl Final. I don't think there is anything wrong in fielding a strong team against Brighton.
