Wembley our home Spurs, sit.
What an entertaining match. Was great to watch. GGWP Spurs
PFA Team of the Year:

De Gea - Man Utd
Walker - Tottenham
Luiz - Chelsea
Cahill - Chelsea
Rose - Tottenham
Kante - Chelsea
Alli - Tottenham
Mane - Liverpool
Hazard - Chelsea
Lukaku - Everton
Kane - Tottenham
+3
Cahill ahead of Alderweireld the only real surprise.
+1
DDG shouldn't be there.
+2
no Pogba?

what a joke of a list.
+5
DDG and Cahill should not be in Team of the year.
+1
why not ddg? who should be there? who has had a better season? lol. DDG is the most consistent top GK in the league.

and before you say lloris, think very carefully at the howlers he's committed this season, not least of which in big games like the man city game.
On the other hand nobody has kept more clean sheets than him and he has conceded the least goals. The second goal vs man city was shocking but rare.

I have no problem with DDG being in there btw. I thought it was out off him and Lloris.

Shocking that Cahil is in there
+1
A case for Alexis could have been made
There's a seperate award for clean sheets though, and he's only ahead of DDG by 1 and we have a game in hand.

I don't think DDG is a bad choice at all, he's had another consistent and top season. He's been the most consistent keeper in the league, cant think of any howlers actually but I can think of a few for lloris despite my not watching all spurs matches (2 vs city).

That said lloris has obviously also had a top season. I wouldnt be mad if he won it either.
I know most of you folks might disagree but Silva needs to be on the list. He is the one who has held City together this year with his new free 8 role. Absolute magician.
Luiz - Azpi
Cahill - Toby
Mane - Sanchez
Tomi - Your have to tell who would you drop from that list to fit Silva? even Eriksen who has 12 assist and had been instrumental in spurs sitting 2nd in the league can't make the list unfortunately

lloris deserves to be on the list ahead of De Gea. SIF just like how your making a case for De Gea. I'm sure we can make better case for why Lloris should have been picked.

Both Lloris and Courtois
1. More clean sheets
2. Teams fighting for title
3. Fewer goals conceded (Courtois has conceded just 2 more and Lloris two less than De Gea)
4. More saves than De Gea

looks like both Cahill and De Gea have made it because of reputation.
+3
Actually bazinga, there was article published this season comparing all sorts of goalkeeping stats and DDG was declared the best goalkeeper in the league. I'll try and find the article.
I you are looking for best in the league right now because of consistency ofcourse De Gea is better. If your picking team of the year for this season alone. I would pick Lloris because he has better stats this season.
+1
SIF, nice of you to bring Lloris howlers into the discussion. 2, both in same game. DDG has made his fair share of mistakes this season. I would pick Courtois or even Heaton over him. DDG is simply there on reputation rather than the season. Most United fans I know agree that DDG hasn't kept up his standards this year.
+1
courtois has made more mistakes than ddg this season. there's a reason you dont see any chelsea fan saying he should be on that list. (besides bozinga) what mistakes are you talking about btw. the only one i can think of is pedro's goal at stamford bridge. Mix up between him and smalling.

DDG hasn't kept up his standard? that's rubbish, he hasn't been needed to make top saves as much as in the last few seasons, thats the difference.
Never understood why they have s**t like this before the season is over
+1
SIF - (besides bazinga) said he thinks Lloris should have made it ahead of DDG and not courtois.

Between are you saying DDG is having better season compare to Lloris and courtois? If yes no point continuing discussion any further. You simply ignore the stats when it does not work for you and use them when it works for you.
+3
I know Luiz had a great season but I would have picked Azpi and Alderwiereld instead of Luiz and Cahill.

I don't want to be harsh and I know Mane has been good for Liverpool but Sanchez is far more important to Arsenal and has more goals than Mane.

@Tomi, the most consistent striker in the PL (Aguero) and the most consistent MF (David Silva, has anyone seen him having a bad game, ever?) Neither one have every been in the team of the year.
SIF, what about the goal against Stoke and Watford(opening goal was it?), or does your selective memory filter that out since it is De Gea. :P
+2
@Bazinga, I would replace Mane for Silva

@Moe, yeah screw PFA. Always been a quack list. Aguero did not make it even when he was the leading goalscorer by 5 goals.
After that karate kick on Luiz I'm glad he didn't make it :3

He's a great striker, but lost quite a bit of respect after that
@Savage - yes he has been erratic about those karate kicks. Strangely he has only reserved this for Luiz - also this isn't the first time he has done it to Luiz either.

Also Savage, that's quite Savage saying that you are glad he did not make it :P
you're going to have to show me the goals, cant remember them, too lazy to look. i remember watford scoring from a corner, or maybe bournemouth, but not sure if that was this season.

and im not ignoring the stats, im trying to find the article im talking it about, it measure a ton of stats and came out with DDG as the best in the league, by some distance
http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11662/10731973/chelsea-tottenham-liverpool-man-city-man-utd-arsenal-keepers-ranked

found it. ok not a "ton" of stats but not the typical statistics.

"When combining the two parts of the model, the study finds De Gea to be the top shot-stopper at a top six club, with a 74 per cent rating."

Jackson's data suggests that of the 'keepers at top six clubs, Courtois has faced the most difficult shots this term - despite only conceding 15 league goals - followed by De Gea, Karius, Mignolet and Cech.

"Lloris, meanwhile, has been heralded by many for keeping so many clean sheets for Spurs this year, yet he has faced the easiest shots of any of the 'keepers at the top six clubs."

So much for drop in standards? He's had as good a season as he can have. I dont see any problem with him winning the award, but of course some would be biased against him just as someone like me would be biased for him. at any rate, i DO think he's the best keeper in the league, and has been the most consistent this season.

The analysis doesnt include the last few months, dont think much has changed though.
don't you take my mané away!
+1
To no surprise list is filled with Chelsea and Tottenham...DDG definitely deserves to be on the list, he was miles better than Lloris or Courtois this season...no wonder Zidane wants him on his team
SIF, That analysis completely ignores a lot of Loris's top qualities. He is a sweeper, and Spur's captain. That analysis only confirms but doesn't mention Loris's ability to stop the danger before it happens.

Loris should have won.
+1
it's a double edged sword, he comes out at times and that leads to mistakes.

you're entitled to your opinion though.

also being captain of spurs doesn't mean he gets to be in the team of the season. And it's great that he's a sweeper, doesnt make him the league's best goalkeeper. im sure he was as much a sweeper this year as last year, and he didnt win it then either.
Tomi it's the slight hatred you develop for a guy who wronged someone you like (luiz).

Yeah he seems to have some beef with Luiz, Luiz plays a bit rash and can give clumsy fouls away at times, maybe it got into his skin I guess.

@AgueroCity DDG is of course great, but 'miles better' than Lloris and Courtois is false. Quality wise, better than them but not by very much. Form wise it's debatable he is even the best ATM
+1
Hi
+1
hello there
+2
It is really annoying how Chelsea have been crowned champions already and Spurs are hardly getting a mention. Pathetic really.

"Spurs will stuggle without Kane"
Spurs, have NOT lost a league game without kane.

Spurs will not catch up to Chelsea
"Spurs have a much easier fixture schedule to Chelsea"

Spurs don't have the mentality or players to catch Chelsea
"Spurs are the most inform side in 2017, have yet to lose at home I believe, Chelsea have lost at home twice this season"

It's ridiculous how they are not getting much credit, instead, yes, Chelsea have done incredible, but don't put that bs pressure on us, give credit to Spurs who are keeping pace with us well. And i do believe its easy to play when the pressure is not really on you (which is what the Media have essentially created with thier whole Champions elect nonesense). But still, Spurs should be title contenders along side us, its still not a shut case by any stretch.
Well because theirs more interesting things to write about based on the media. The media is more interested in Chelsea and how well they've been playing and how Pep and Mourinho haven't lived up to it because they were suppose to win every trophy in the world. Then don't forget how Arsenal have had a season to forget, an all time low for Wenger. Then theirs Liverpool who started out really well then are now struggling to get to the finish line.

Spurs haven't been inconsistent compared to the other teams below them but they haven't been as perfect as Chelsea all season. Their a great team that has been doing well but because of how the rest have been, not much attention on them this season.
+1
I think its actually a compliment to our team from the media. We aren't that fickle we have a team and manager with title winning experience and there will be no complacency. See how we bounced back against City after that disheartening and potential title-derailing loss at home to Palace. We'll be fine dont panic bro.
Bluff you sound just like Jose. Take the focus off you and put it on someone else. What was the saying from last year? Only spurs can finish 3rd in a 2 horse race. Plus with the gap you've had at the top it is and has been yours to lose.
+2
Read somewhere that Spurs have the most points since the start of 2017. True?
It was Everton, but that might've been before the loss at pool and draw with united.
+1
Since 2017 began Spurs have gone 9-2-1 (29 points) while Everton have gone 7-3-2 (24 points). Two weeks ago they were both 7-2-1.
Good research :D I think it's only a matter of time before spurs win the league. They have shown how good at the back they are and as we know that's one of the most important factors in winning the league. Their mids can also score so they aren't always reliant on Kane to do it.
@Shaymoose Haha, I kinda do, don't I?
lol I was looking for quotations but then I remembered it wouldn't be Jose speaking in for the Blues...
While Spurs league finishing position last season and likelihood to finish 2nd this represents a remarkable improvement I seriously doubt their ability to win the league. For a team to win this league they must win 2/3rds of their away games to start with and Spurs away form has been nowhere near that level. I will always point to last season as Arsenal ans Spurs missed opportunity because going forward there will be no easier season. I expect United and City to massively improve next season and Arsenal will very likely go on their biggest spending spree this summer to add to the competition. Liverpool will also be in there fighting so it gets even tougher.

They have a talented set of players but they dont have the mental strenght to win this league hence their capitulation at SB after leading 2 nil which was same situation Rodgers found himself a couple of years earlier. They might well beat us at Wembly and go on to win the Cup but they've been there before under Redknapp
+2
Seriously doubt their ability to win the league lol. They are 7 points off the top and have a better defensive record than Chelsea and still have 7 games to go. They may not win the league but they will be pretty close, so to say that they don't have the ability is nonsense.
+3
KevMo...it may sound like nonsense to you probably bcos u have not seen as much of the PL as I have. Even in recent years Liverpool, Spurs, United and Chelsea have fluctuated in and out of the top 4 so I know what I'm talking about son. Arsenal finished in the top 4 for over a decade but never found that mental strenght to push for the title. Sorry Spurs achievement has u dreaming but reality is they are 7 points behind and at this time of the season it will take a monumental catastrophe for them to usurp us to the title.

Next season they play in the CL..u think it will get easier. Keep dreaming boy!!
+1
Maybe tone down/turn off the condescension?
+7
kgb I have huge respect for u but pls dont insinuate that my post is condescending. I have said several times that the inky team I'm scared of is Spurs and even suggested they could beat us at Wembly inthe coming weeks.I was just trying to point something out which I think most people were missing. Spurs achievement has been remarkable I am saying that for the umpteenth time but I dont see them winning the title. Just my opinion and apologies to anyone who is offended. Only time will tell so I rest my case.
+1
The use of son and boy are the main things I think KGB is referring to. You're always entitled to your opinion, but when you speak like a Samuel L Jackson type movie character who knows everything and has seen it all it comes off a bit condescending. My 2 cents.
+5
If I were badass like Samuel Jackson, I'd use those words too :D

+2
Such condensation

http://www.viwintech.com/sites/viwintech/files/condensation.jpg
+1
Those would be ice crystals if they were on samuel lol he's one cold ass motha xhaka
Shaymoose..I find it condescending when my post is labelled as "nonesense" u might as well call me an idiot. I never use such words when posting about other users comments.

All the same I apologise for using the words u guys pointed out amd thanks for calling me to order.

Naija:

"probably bcos u have not seen as much of the PL as I have."
"so I know what I'm talking about son."
"Keep dreaming boy!!"

I would be highly annoyed if someone said those things to me.

Your response makes me think you thought I was referring to the content of your post ("Spurs achievement has been remarkable I am saying that for the umpteenth time but I dont see them winning the title. Just my opinion and apologies to anyone who is offended") but I was actually identifying the comments I quoted above (that Shaymoose also realized I referring to).

Also, notice I didn't address my first post to you; I was definitely including you in it, but also KevMo (for the reason you just mentioned).
Saying a post is nonsense is someone voicing their opinion and rejecting to believe what you're saying, not in the best of ways, but it's not condescending. I apologize to you if we are being too PC on the situation. Not trying to take sides or anything, but I think KGB was right to call it out.
I stand by my statement ;)
Nija - Sorry but i feel "Keep dreaming boy!!" was disrespectful. Anyways lets chill and enjoy the title run on our forum. Cheers
At least he didn't say blud fam
+1
PS. Also this season Spurs is by far the youngest team in the league.
The race is back on after today. I wonder if Chelsea will choke?
+1
No Para, Spurs don't have the ability to win the league...
@KevMo

I don't know, they are getting closer and closer each year. It's a matter of time.
Rudy Gestede: Scores on his debut for Aston Villa, which was the winner against Middlesbrough and has since that day set a Premier League Record of 38 consecutive games without a win for the big man. This is when he started or been on the bench by the way!

He's now at Middlesbrough because a voodoo shaman told him to join the first enemy he defeated in the Premier League. He obliged and now Middlesbrough have not won since January and are 5 points off safety. I think this man may get his team relegated.
+3
On Moyes:

Edit: Meh, actually, the more I think about it, the more I think he was just lucky the reporter didn't complain. Just doesn't look or sound good, unprofessional at best. Im still not sure I buy the sexism angle but it was condescending at the very least.
I think she would have filed a complaint if he hadn't apologized in the tunnel right after and i don't think it was a joke, cos if it had been a joke there would be no need for apology. He was clearly pissed at the fact that she brought up his position as a manager being in danger after that poor run he is on and the fact that the owners were in the stands watching.

Maybe he is learning from Mourinho? to be more aggressive with the journalists so that they don't ask harsh questions in the future? questions that make them uncomfortable and might have an influence on the whole squad in general.
I don't think the comments reflected him in a great light but didn't think he was being sexist, unless the fact that he said 'I would slap you, even if you are a woman' is misconstrued as 'how dare he think twice before slapping a woman but will slap a man without hesitating' as sexism.

The sexism comment was made by only one person(as far as I recall) but ya saying stuff like he said is bound to get him in trouble with the authorities.
It probably shows his stupidity. Instead of saying "do you understand that my players will probably watch this interview?! What effect do you think that question will have on my players? Please never ask a question like that again" he just offered her a good old slap
+1
Paddy, he said that because he thought he was off-camera. The interview was done. This is post-interview
Seems like he is of the old generation that believes you should never hit a woman. I interpreted that comment that he would slap her despite the fact that she is a woman (which goes against his upbringing).

If anything, that is the true spirit of feminism? If he would slap a man for it then, in the name of gender equality, should a woman not also be worthy of receiving a slap?

It reflects poorly that he resorts to threatening physical violence but I don't see this as an issue of sexism. Rather a case of improper conduct specifically regarding aggressive behaviour and threat of violence.
Lol you tried to get a cheap shot in on mou and failed horribly. Maybe Moyes should take a leaf from pep's book and try the "i'm very happy here at man city" interview with a hoarse voice and tears in his eyes lol.
+1
lol i didn't take any cheap shots at anyone...perhaps look at Mou's interviews recently? one reporter he told "you shouldn't have a microphone in your hands" and walked away on him, then after the draw with West Brom he started lashing out on the reporter because he asked him "do you think the game was even?" instead of simply replying "no it was not, because we had more of the ball and had more chances" he started accusing him of making a statement "you really think that game was even etc"

Managers should be more respectful to journalists cos journalists work for the fans. The fans prolly have those same questions that the journalists ask and fans want answers. Obviously some of the question will have an effect on some of the players for example when a coach is asked "if he is afraid that he will be sacked soon", some of the players that don't get enough playing time on the pitch will think "you know what even when I'm on the pitch i simply won't perform so that this manager gets sacked and maybe the next one will give me more time". Or some players simply lose confidence in the coach and his tactics if he's about to be fired.
+3
P S if i ever do take a cheap shot trust me i never fail cos i always back it with facts....enjoy yet another draw thanks to a penalty
Slap - woman,-got to be sexist. To a man he would have said punch. So for him not to be sexist, he should have threatened to punch her.
Nah, men slap each other all the time.
+2
Learning from mourinho is an obvious cheap shot and completely f*****g irrelevant to this topic. We are talking about moyes comments to a reporter off camera and whether they were sexist or inappropriate.

You want lessons from bad mouth managers trying to bully reporters then how about from pep, he's sworn at journalists this season, saying "what the f**k" when someone asked him about winning 4 trophies this season and he's been nasty in the media when pissed off but of course you single out mou to learn from. You think people can't read through your nonsense from years of biased rubbish coming from you? This post had nothing to do with mourinho or united but here you are, 'unbiased,' not taking a shot, dragging in some irrelevant "fact." If you want to make a comment about a manager behaving poorly in the media start with your own, you don't have to look hard. Just about the only thing about mourinho that would have possibly been relevant was his row with eva where his comments were well-inappropriate.

And to the other people actually contributing without taking jibes, I'd say slap is condescending and even joking about slapping a woman for doing her job is just daft unprofessionalism in retrospect. You might get away with that vs man a man in a male-dominated field but I can see why there's consternation. What I'm curious about I'd if he has made these types of comments before, either to men or women reporters or other staff.

Also go without saying everyone here has seen/heard the tape before commenting right?
you need to chill man, relax take a deep breath. No need to throw the F word around or is that ok on this forum? You want a cheap shot? Enjoy being 6th again, now thats a cheap shot. I'm fairly new to this forum maybe a couple months, what years of biased rubbish are you talking about?

and my comment irrelevant??

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/david-moyes-jose-mourinho-co-10165494
+1
P S i think my comments do bother you a bit too much, i won't comment on your threads anymore
+1
Haha I hate Mourinho but love the effect he has on his teams' fans.
+2
"Maybe he is learning from Mourinho?"

You're not fooling anyone. You implication that this is Mourinho fault or that he started this seeming deep-rooted issue of Managers bullying journos is ridiculous and is obviously a baiting comment.

And not commenting on my threads, sounds like a smart idea. You always seem to work in a jibe one way or another.
What the bloody hell did Moyes do? Damn missed it
"Half of Arsenal's team aren't good enough" ~ Petit

And Arsenal fans argue with me that their squad is not a mid table squad and Wenger is to blame for their shortcomings.
+1
Arsenal are missing Cazorla like crazy. Someone a la Jack Wilshere. Funny thing is - Jack is actually fit this season and is warming his ass on the bench at Bournemouth. Everything going perfectly wrong for Arsenal.

The current CDMs and CMs that Arsenal have are not doing squat to justify their place. None of them really.

I wouldn't go as far as to call them midtable though. They need a change of mgr, with all due respect to Le Prof

Bastian Schweinsteiger Asked If 'He Can Help Chicago Win A World Cup' During First Press Conference!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRYUl7hlid0

*FACEPALM*
+2
Haha sounds like a non-football journalist out of Chicago was told to go cover the presser, but that's still pretty bad journalism lol. Gotta do your research beforehand
+1
hes boning my wife, ana ivanovic :{ smh
I could not for the life of me finish that video, it was too painful to listen to. I can't even....
+2
I thought Bastian would board the next plane back to Europe after hearing this s**t. What an embarrassment for all of what US soccer is trying so hard to achieve right now.
He's lucky its Schweiny, he kept it cool and even made a joke out of it at the end...can you imagine if it was Ibrahimovic??
What are you implying about ibra? the guy is always cracking jokes in interviews.
Exactly, and it would have been at the yank's expense! A roast lamb comes to mind
SoccerIsFootbal look at some of Ibra's interviews on youtube...he doesn't crack jokes in all of them
i think as a united fan i'm WAY better placed than you to comment on ibra' personality. I see him play and give interviews almost weekly. Of course he can get very serious especially when we don't win but the guy loves to crack jokes, and wouldn't miss that opportunity i'm sure to crack a joke or use some other sarcastic reply.
What if the PL had a cap on the amount of foreign stars a team could sign? What if they brought it down to 11 foreign players, what is the outcome? I'm sure the academies would well thrive of it and more English and young academy players would get more chances. On the other foreign stars would suffer from these and they would choose to go elsewhere.

Good idea or bad idea? Thoughts?
There is already a cap. Every team must have certain amount of "homegrown" players. Don't know if it's smart to increase the restrictions. That might affect the overall quantity of the league.
+1
Then the premier league will turn crap, the only reason its good is because of foreign players and managers
+1
It's a global game now, even Spain is seeing a large amount of foreign players now. That said, I think teams just need to use their common sense and give opportunities to academy players as well as having as many youth talents training rigorously with the first team. In my experience, clubs only do that when they have long term ambitions and a stable, united club.
