I’m actually with you on this. Hashtags are irritating as ****

There’s a chasm between BFF and PILF.

Next year. I think even we’ve written this year off. Champions League and FA cup double will be ok, but we won’t be happy until we’re winning leagues again.

Bollocks to my dry January resolution, that 4th goal has brought on the urge to celebrate gin stylee!

Sorry Zargie, Everton have reverted to total dross...

Son hit the post and Alli missed a couple of sitters.

Son was top class again.

Tottenham playing our best football at the moment. Only Manchester City have picked up more points in the last 7 games.

Wanyama nearly fit and Alderweireld due to return.

With a full squad finally it should be a good run in from here.

You think you need a drink!

BFS's new manager bounce is well and truly over, and even the defence is falling apart. Hopefully there are some more players to come in before the window shuts. Tosun looks decent and if Siggy and Bolasie can get better and increase their creativity, which they are capable of, I think Tosun will start scoring. But the defence has to improve. Williams and Jags are past their prime and I don't think Holgate is good enough. We desperately need a top quality left back, as we current have a shit right back playing there.

Competing with Spurs for players nobody has heard of. How the mighty fall eh?

Evidence if needed that you're all at a loss. It used to be 'we don't care about the league we want to win European trophies'. Now, because that's impossible for such dross, you're desperate to win the little old Premier League again. Lots of mighty falling around here eh?

Oh, and **** off Watford and that **** scoring with a handball as obvious as Terry Henry's to **** the paddy's over. Cheating little **** head. Still, if it gets Pelligrino the sack then who ****ing cares? My only worry is who the **** we get to replace him. Maybe Zidane will get punted from Madrid and fancies the El South Coastico now he's got some experience of derbies. Whatever happens, **** Watford and their cheating **** players.

We will march on as a great football club.

Pellegrino was the cheap appointment (from what I read) and that's come back to bite us. Perhaps the board will learn and the new Chinese part owners will pay attention.

Time will tell, we're in a good, stable place off the pitch and we just need to match that with a good stable manager and squad. Like United...or Liverpool...

You're in no position to be calling any one fat. That's as bad as Mike saying someone is pessimistic, or Ed saying someone is old.
