So much football that it's like Christmas all over again cheers

Let's take a look at some of these fixtures...

1) Wolves v Chelsea. Relegation battle for one of them and CL qualification battle for the other. Using the phrase "on paper..." would feel silly after the super-surprising round 19, so I won't go there. I think anything is possible in this one, but Chelsea and their manager can ill-afford to drop points in this game.

2) Fulham v Arsenal. The Cottagers have been a little disappointing this season under Martin Jol and one win in five games doesn't look that promising for them. I reckon an Arsenal victory, while hoping for a home win.

3) Manc City v Liverpool. City have won all nine of their home games with 28 goals scored, 4 conceded. That doesn't bode well for the greatest club on Earth, but if 'pool's defence continue their good displays, we might have a thrilling game in our hands.

4) Newcastle v Manc United. Call me funny, but I've got a feeling Newcastle will win comfortably.

5) Tottenham v Everton. These teams will finally play their postponed match from the opening round of the league and should Tottenham win both this game and their home game against West Brom, they would put at least a six-point gap between themselves and the 4th placed team after round 20.


So, the previous round offered perhaps the biggest surprises of the season, but what surprises do you feel coming this round? Mine would be Wolves getting something from Chelsea, Everton winning at Tottenham and that comfy Newcastle win over Manchester United.

We dont have a hope in hell tbh, going to get owned 3 or 4 nil, Utd will be smarting from the loss to Blackburn and we are shit......

Let's not forget Pardew will bench Ben Arfa and Santon among others for inferior players.......

I liked what I saw of him, looked like a fairly good dribbler and comfortable with the ball. He is only 18, so I guess he could be called an exciting prospect.


Great for Liverpool that Arsenal lost and damn, Wolves came so close to getting a draw against Chelsea.. Neutral

Congrats to Swansea, Stoke and Norwich for winning their away games.
