It's weird, I was really worried about this Christmas period with us having to go to Qatar, but I don't think the results could really have gone any better for us.

Far too rose tinted on Arsenal's prospects. They won't get to any cup semi-finals in 2020 and certainly nowhere near the Top 5 of the EPL.

Talk of a Liverpool League and Champions League double will start in February when the league title race will likely be almost done and dusted for them and the CL football starts again.

I wondered if the World Club Cup fixture overload would catch up with them- it doesn't seem to have yet but it may.

Pukki's disallowed goal in the first half, apparently initially ruled offside by VAR because Pukki was offside before the cross into him was hit. Later changed him being his shoulder being offside, yet others have been given as goals this season.

Consistency is a priority.

lots of people bemoaning how both Pukki and Kane were offside.
well the IFAB laws say so!
VAR takes it tothe nth degree, but per the laws they were not level. even if it means their armpits, big toes or private parts are offside.
any playable part of the body that is offside is offside!

Get yourself down to Carrefour dude. Picked up a 65" TV for 2K.....I'm sure they'll have some decent deals on projectors. Treat yourself!

Southampton's form must be putting a smile on your face at the moment tho. Had a few decent results over the festive season.

Arsenal's form is whats putting a smile on my face. Oh, and the infighting between the fans and those on AFTV.

I've got a 65 in the lounge and a 50-something in the bedroom, but a projector sounds like fun and big enough that I won't need my glasses on in bed (annoying as chuff) and able to be on the ceiling so you can lie flat.

Great result against Chelsea, what a team goal for the second.
Yesterday was frustrating, keeper pulled off a couple of great saves for them but a point against Palace isn't bad news.

The bad news is the shit teams all keep winning. Watford are coming back for example...the whole bottom half could be in trouble.

Yeah, that'll be United fault.... every time we turn a corner we hit another one.... and eventually end up going round in circles. Play well, beat a top 6 team, play a bottom team and draw / lose. Massively frustrating.

Quite looking forward to the Arsenal game tho.

Shame McT seems like he will be out for a while. He was having a cracking season so far.

Yeah, it was a good game. It nice to have a manager who can actually make a substitution and it actually make a difference to the game. It been a long time since we've had one of those.
