so looking at the table now. Only 3 English teams can make it to the CL next season right?
no..
I don't understand the question ... do you mean to ask if EPL loses a Champions League berth for next (2016/17) season?

If so, then the short answer is no
Long answer is, noooooooooo


But lol, seriously speaking, this season has to finish first. If PL doesn't have any representatives in the semi-final or finals of Champions League this season, then we may potentially lose a spot for the 2017/18 season. I haven't/too lazy to work out the math, but I think we are set to lose our CL spot to Italy Serie A if no English club is in this year's CL Final or Semi-final.
+1
because we are guaranteed 1st and 2nd are set to be in the CL next season, but 3rd & 4th would have to go through the qualifying rounds to get in
Arsenal are coming to the US!! It's in San Jose, CA vs MLS All-stars July 28th. They beat Spurs 2-1 last year so of course they need a better challenger :)

So, I gotta plan my East Coast to West Coast trip !
Start walking, now! lol

@Shaymoose... Man... I swear I don't wanna freeze to death lol
There's a Guardian article at the bottom that asks for pundits' BPL Top 4 teams (LEI, TOT, ARS, MCI) combined best XI. What's yours? Here's mine, including manager and bench.

Manager: Wenger

Cech
Bellerin Alderweireld Koscielny Monreal
Kante Alli
Mahrez Ozil Sanchez
Aguero

Subs: Lloris, Morgan, Vertonghen, Y.Toure, De Bruyne, Vardy, Kane
Cech
Sagna - Alder - Vert - Nacho
Mahrez - Kante - Ozil - Alexis
Vardy - Aguero
Shame cazorla and coq are hurt, they would walk on those teams
hard to leave Vardy out of the first XI, even though Aguero has returned to form in recent weeks. I also don't think Sanchez has hit the same heights as last season yet, so its generous to put him in there.

Cech
Bellerin-Alderweireld-Huth-Monreal
Kante
Alli-Ozil
Mahrez-Kane-Vardy

+1
If it were team of the season between the 4 sides definitely not Alexis, but he certainly takes his spot in a dream team.

How can you break up Alderweireld and Vertonghen though? I think they're a meal better served together.
Some last year facts ahead of Sunday's game.
A year ago we won away game against City 2 : 0. There is some similarity in the situation now.
Back then we gave up possession, playing counter attacking football with just 35 pct possession.
The formation was 4:3:3 to 4:4:2 at times with Giroud and Sanchez upfront and Coq, Ramsey, Ox and Santi in midfield.
Think we may see some similar tactics on Sunday.
Question remains if there will be Vardy's personal marking and if so, by whom?
I would like to see Theo upfront to make defenders' life difficult, inflicting fouls.
If we go for 4:4:2 formation and counterattacking football, my choice would be:

Cech
Bel-Per-Kos-Nacho
Camp - Ramsey - Coq - Alexis
Giroud-Theo

Both Campbell and Alexis have great stamina and workrate, tracking back, and will restrict Leicester flanks - Mahrez and Albrighton.

Don't want to predict any score but feel we gonna win this one.
Or else the trophy will go to Leicester, which will be a fairy tail miracle (their starting 11 price against City was meager 22 mio:-).
Guess all the football world (except City and Spurs) will want it then.
But Leicester dont play a possession game. We played against City leaving them with the ball and the decisions to make and we played counter, but that's exactly what Leicester is going to do.

Leicester will give us the ball, defend, press and counter. We like to play a possession game and we play this game at home. I see it difficult to replicate the City game. We need to think of the first game against them and accept that we must outscore them.

Therefore Coquelin is vital in this game. We'll be exposed to counters and he gives us a great balance in that regard. I personally think that the combo Mertesacker-Coquelin is great. Coquelin knows when to track back and makes up for Mert's slow pace when needed. That way we can profit from Mert's placement, experience and aerial threat. I still rate Mert higher than Gab at the moment, Koscielny being the most complete defender we have (maybe most complete in the PL right now). The only really big problem is Mert's really slow and can't always make it up with clever placement.

In attack, as Leicester will sit back, I would go for Giroud. He brings a lot to our link up play. But I would recommend Giroud even more knowing that set pieces are dangerous against Leicester and Giroud defends them really well for us.

So, all in all:

Cech
Bellerin Mert Kos Nacho
Coq Ramsey
Campbell Ozil Alexis
Giroud
+1
I would rather start with Gabriel instead of Per as Vardy speed will be dangerous with Per. I know Per is outstanding at reading the situation BUT all it takes is one ball over the top on his side and we are exposed.

Cech
Bellerin Gab Kos Nacho
Coq Ramsey
Walcott Ozil Alexis
Giroud
Walcott and Ox are so out of form but lets hope this is the game they gain their form
How many goals have we given up since Gabriel started for merts?
+2
If don't win against leichester i think we can pretty much say bye.
It makes its much harder, for sure. But in this league you never know. The pressure of being actual favourites might change things for them.

Never rule anything out until it is a mathematically impossible!
+3
I've been Arsenal fan long enough to tell you we wont win of we are not winning that game.
It's definitely a critical game. If Arsenal lose this, the team's self-belief will take a big blow and I'm not sure if there is any recovering from that.

A draw on the other hand would not be ideal but would still be acceptable.
Becoming an Arsenal fan makes you clairvoyant? o.O
http://data.7m.cn/matches_data/92/en/get_miss.shtml

Amidst all the criticism our defence has been getting lately...we actually have the joint 2nd best defensive record in the league alongside Man united. We've only conceded 3 more goals than Tottenham who in my opinion have the best defence in the league at the moment.

Last year we had the 3rd best defensive record. Not bad.
Think we have the most clean sheets in the league
Well, just because others are doing badly does not mean we should be like them. I wudh we could concede less than 10 goals in the league all season because when we finally do that, we win the league without a doubt.
+1
That's a minimum of 28 clean sheets lol. About 12 more than the season Cech and Szeszney won the golden glove with 16 clean sheets for the whole season.

I don't think that anyone has ever had that many clean sheets!?
Claudio ranieri has only one one game out of 14 against arsene wenger. In arsene I trust
*won
wun wun*

That doesn't mean anything on Sunday.
not here to troll but just wanted to illuminate you on this piece of news, as premier league clubs talk about necessary ticket price increases and meetings with cyber security companies to block illegal streaming of matches...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3439501/Billionaire-NFL-owner-Walmart-heiress-wife-purchase-Texas-mega-ranch-listed-725million-bigger-Los-Angeles.html
Thanks for the heads up.

Firstly, you don't have to greet by saying 'no trolling'. I think we're all adults...or most of us. We all expect a proper conversation regardless of rivals or not.

Secondly, the greed is beyond ridiculous and because of that I believe the league and its bearers will eventually suffer for that - there's a bubble and as it expands the natural cause results in a burst.

Thirdly, I'm not surprised by these owners. They're vultures of the highest bidder. They do not love the club but money. And even though we slate Chelsea for having Roman hats off to him. The guy lost so much money investing and it's now he's seeing a good return. That's freekin admirable if ask me. Proof is in the pudding, the man loves that club. Can't say the same for Stan or the Glazers.

Fourthly, be prepared for a war between fans and their clubs. As inflation goes up and locals are priced out you'll see more of what happened during the Liverpool game with a walkout. But here's what's going to happen, you'll have stadiums filled with more tourists like Arsenal does which means less atmosphere. Yes, clubs will look at us as an example of how to seat fans but I don't think it'll be enough to combat that end.
+3
The chosen rich people will always take the rest of us as suckers. Never liked a single one of them tbh.
Biggest football clubs in england are more like multinational corporations than your neighborhood club. The irony of this battle with fans is of course that fans want more and more competition in the transfer market (and on the pitch), but don't want the costs passed down to them. I'm not defending price hikes here, but if liverpool (and other) fans want the club to cater to their local fans and their affordability to go to games, the trade-off made should be acknowledged and kept in mind.

There are multiple reasons why the likes of Ozil and Sanchez play for Arsenal. One of them being massive matchday revenues (which were double that of liverpool last season if I'm not mistaken). Earning 50 million pounds more than your rival gives you a hand in negotiations.
+4
Can you imagine, in any other sphere of your life, that you will commit to supporting one monopolist through thick and thin, buying their overpriced products which are in any case not that different from what they were selling last year? What's more, you WANT the monopolist to make as much money as they possible can.

Yeah. Fandom is a very weird thing. No wonder these people are taking advantage.
+1
i have said this to my friends before and ill say it here now, i love tottenham for so many reasons, but i would stop supporting them if they became a monopoly like real madrid, barcelona, man u, chelsea, etc.

some people will take this meaning out of context but i am tottenham till i die, or until they sell out...
They stop being Spurs the minute it becomes money driven. Arsenal as well! The old Arsenal doesn't exist and I think on second thoughts I as a fan really should hold just one foot in the water and nothing more. I guess it's just the way the club plays that's more identifiable (at least within the past decade or so) than the name itself.

The badge though? It's like a flag, which still carries some meanings but that's really how far it gets. Bought and paid for by advertisers.

So, to all the Barca, Madrid, United, Juve and Arsenal supporters to name a few, does it really matter if your club is termed a BIG brand when you don't see a penny from it and the owners are really vultures that now owns that brand in which you wear and give them more money in THEIR fat pockets than Donald Trump? Then they turn around in a record year for money in the league (English teams) and still make plans on raising ticket prices?

My money belongs elsewhere other than that. I'd rather walk around in the city and give a dollar each to every homeless I see. Actually, I know people who'd like a 5 bucks to keep them afloat.

Priorities for the sake of a 90 minute entertainment then back to square one again. That's what's wrong with the world. But what the hell do I know.
+1
If city and Spur tie and we won against Leichester that will be a very good weekend for me🤗🤗
If Arsenal - Leicester instead is the draw, who would you rather to win, City or Spurs?
draw. At this point, I think every point counts, and 2 total points for MCI/TOT is better than 3.
yeah but if ya HAD to choose..... ;P
Obviously city
Does that mean you are more worried about Spurs than about City?
I'd rather City win. I see City and Spurs as equal threats ATM and we have a good H2H against City recently. City are also one point behind with a worse GD than Spurs.
