      Hmm think they're more of a threat than that could get very close to the top 4 but I hope you guys who think they'll fade away are right.  Villa did but the squad had no depth Spurs has (oh to have the dosh - thievin yanks)

      Before the season started I tipped them to finish 4th and I'll stick with that.

      Massive blow with Modric out for some time now.

      I think they will come in 6th.

      Modric has been the heartbeat for them and he'll be out for quite some time. Don't think that Kranjcar would be able to live up and be as influential as Modric though.

      Just 4 games into the season and they're talking about top 3 finish. Bollocks, season's still young. No doubt they have got some cracking players in their ranks but top clubs are able to string on unbeatable streaks and that is the difference between us and them.

      Don't think 'Arry has the ability to lead them there, though. 5th/6th would be more realistic for them IMO.

      TBH, i now think that the Spurs and Man City will be a threat to the top 4. Is anybody else excited about the prospect of tougher opposition and a challenge to the top 4? If we really want to be the best, it would be sweeter winning the Premier League in a season with 6 real competitors.

      It excites me if they are taking points more from other teams, but only if we are taking points to. It does make the league alot more exciting to, games suddenly become harder to read.. going to be a great season. Spurs could be the Aston Villa of last season, fly at the start but drop off after not being able to handle the pace. And then have all there best players bought by bigger clubs :D

      They will sign Kranjar to cover him. They will probably sign another 1 or 2 before the window closes. Hate them or like them fact is they are playing good football, building a very good squad and look like they will build a new stadium soon. They are a huge threat to us

      Great start for them but i do think they will fade as the season goes on,Redknapp has got a big squad but will he be able to keep them all happy.It's okay when your winning games but when a couple of results go against it will be interesting to see how they react to this.

      I haven't got your confidence on this one.  I'd feel happier if I saw Acquilani running around and coming through a reserves test -  just so we have a timescale to look forward to.  As I think we need the creative touch and some of the pressure off Torres/Gerrard. Spurs and the Chavs bother me !!!  :-\

      I think he is in love with Harry Redknapp. He seems the type that needs someone to act like a parent. He probably couldn't handle the way Rafa has a professional relationship with his players and liked 'Arry and his personal relationships.

      Either way, enjoy the bench Coruch.

      He could enjoy the bench at a team like us if he wanted, would rather him than the Ponytail. But, if he wants someone to pat him on the ass and say everything will be ok, then stick with 'Arry. He is a good liar after all ;)

      City and Spurs, under the right guidance definitely have the potential to challenge for the title.

      At the way City is going eking out results like that then they are going to challenge for it as well. Spurs are also getting the points on board. They have definitely been doing well.

      However, this is just the start whereby everyone is just excited, and ready to go. Towards the end of the season the standard between the big four and clubs like City/Spurs will show through. Their First XI might match us now but they still got a long way to go in terms of experience and class, IMO.

      We will definitely be up for a tough fight with City/Spurs but I reckon we'll still be too strong for them, top clubs like Liverpool are capable of stringing together 10-20 games winning streak and that is going to be very tough for City/Spurs to beat.

      Not a huge threat I don't think. They have improved quite a bit this year and have a VERY capable squad, but I don't think they can keep it up for the whole year. Still, a top 8 finish for them would be decent enough.

      Should we be worried about Liverpool's new found form?
      Is it just a short-ish purple patch or has 'King' Kenny got some real up-to-date tactical nous from his time watching from the sidelines?
      Or is it all just Steve Clarke?

      I'm looking up, not down.

      Liverpool are one of the last clubs I'd be worried about. They are a mid table side on a decent bit of form right now boosted by a new manager. They are now back to their wrist slicingly boring as love method of winning, Bolton went on a good run not so long ago and currently the likes of Sunderland are doing the same. All mediocre clubs go on nosebleed runs every now and then.

      Spurs have to implode for that to happen, which we won't.

      1 defeat in 15 PL fixtures, with injuries galore, is CL qualification form.

      As posted elsewhere, top 3 is on, given our form and remaining fixtures, and our competitors'.

      Worried about a team that has a manager who was last involved in football when George Graham was considered employable? Who just played a 3-5-2 in the modern Premiership? Who is so desperate not to drop Johnson he plays him on the left?

      No.

      The honeymoon should wear off soon - they've got some tricky fixtures coming up themselves.

      No worries here.

      Serious answer

      - This season, they aren't going to catch us, and certainly won't catch anyone in front of us.
      - Next, they always have potential, but have shown they are still a circus

      If you look at their actions since firing Roy, it wouldn't give me a lot of faith if I was a Pool fan

      - Appoint a manager who has not managed in pretty much the PL era
      - Spend 60M on a position that's not their biggest problem area
      - Resort to a super defensive style (same issue that saw them struggle to get anywhere under Rafa)

      Sure they have got the dead man bounce/honeymoon effect, but another season without CL is highly likely, Reina has basically indicated he's off (and imo, he, Torres, Gerrard were the only reason Pool was ever a threat).

      You can never completely disregard a side, but with the advent of City, Cheat$ki looking like they will continue spending and our progress, Pool is the ones that need to be worried.

      This post is a cracker from that thread in replying to somebody who said they hate Liverpool and their supporters:

      "Im the same, though i actually feel it about all northern teams. I do not care if people are black or white or what religion they are but i have this absolute hatred of northerners, sometimes i try to hide it as if it was a joke, but i really hate them. Wish we in the south east were our own country."

      Appoint a manager that has actually won the premier league.

      Spent £60m on a position we needed to fill as we only had Kuyt or N'Gog up top after the sale of Torres.

      A super defensive record where we have scored 30 goals over the last 15 league games, second only to Chelsea I believe.
