Spurs started slow and United made several decent chances taking the lead. After that for 60 minutes it was a relatively dull affair other than the Wanyama miss.

Still it was United's marquee performance in the Premier League according to Ed. Each to their own. Although I guess they scored a goal so........

I was there mate. Spurs were awful. Bottled it that day, which set the tone for end of the season. Stoke were harder to beat.

I saw Sanchez is likely on his way to City.

Do you think Mahrez could full his void and what else is Wenger going to do to try and elevate you back?

No-one cares. It's all about United, silly. ;)

Seriously - never believe the hype until they are standing on the pitch with a scarf above their heads and a "I wish I'd signed for Real Madrid" goofy grin on their face.

Sanchez is quality, Mahrez strikes me as Payet-like, in that he's technically Messi, but mentally Winterburn.

He was born in 1997 and is 20 years old.

That makes even me feel old. Ededed will cry when he sees.

Jesus. 8 years older than me.

He's more believable too.

We both get hammered by tax around Easter.

As I understand it, Sanchez has been offered a new £280,000 a week deal. I think he'll sign.

Mahrez hasn't done so well without Kante behind him this season, but apparently we're close to agreeing 60 million for Lacazette.

Could be worse. You could win the league in October every year only to find out it's not how it works.

Agree on all points.

Mahrez is a bit fair weather. Still rather have him than Sissoko mind you. Newcastle are promoted perhaps they'll need him back.

Your age changes like your underwear.

Still two months till kick off????? What do we do till then???? I got 15 minutes out of arguing with JMac now I have another 86,000 minutes to kill.....

1. Bottling it talk
2. Trajectory talk
3. Pictures of babies
4. Stalking footballers on Twitter on their holidays, seeing who's got the best 6 pack (or who's got the most stunning WAG for you lot)

(Where's Cainess, is he still trying to post on the closed 'Premier league 2016/2017' thread?)

He has the extra 5 yards in his head now as opposed to his legs.

Pickford to Everton then for £30m. Could be an absolute bargain. Especially when he then gets sold on to Barcelona for £60m in 6months. Good business either way.

I was hoping United would get him, especially if/when DDG goes to Spain. He's obviously just decided to join a big club instead.

I have deceptive pace. I'm slower than I look.

Was that not Bill Shankley describing a Utd player originally?

Yeah, he's a good player and a definite upgrade on what we have now.

Speaking of DDG, has Woodward plugged the fax machine back in yet?
