    Thought it'd be a good idea to start a new thread about the up coming weekend games and the Monday night game. Maybe merge the posts relating to this weekend's games from the other thread?

    Saturday
    Everton - Chelsea

    Tottenham - Burnley
    Watford - Crystal P
    Bournemouth - Liverpool

    Man City - Man United

    Sunday
    Aston Villa - Leicester
    Newcastle - Southampton
    Norwich - Sheffield U
    Brighton - Wolverhampton

    Monday
    West Ham - Arsenal

    Some interesting fixtures.

    Everton might just be fired up for this one. Feels like they owe their fans a performance after being dismantled at Anfield.

    The Manchester derby. Will Man U come to play or will they just lie down and arch their backs? I'm guessing the latter.
    Even if they do give a fuck about the game they won't get anything out of it.

    Aston Villa - Leicester, yep this is where Leicester drop points. I don't know if Villa will win but I'm pretty certain that they won't get 3 points. Villa has looked strong at times this season on their ground, gave us a run for our money, so I'm guessing they'll do the same against Leicester. Trezeguet and Grealish are in form and Leicester's squad depth will now be tested.

    The London derby...meh.

    Non sarcastic support of Ole tomorrow, at least Rashford looks in form so there will be some threat to city's shit defence.

    Agree on villa, I have a similar feeling

    All good games to watch. Hopeful that both United and Villa can get something out of their games. Both playing decent football and confidence high. Even if United were a bit lucky against Spurs. Fingers crossed they are lucky again!

    Wouldn’t be surprised at all for Villa and Utd to cause a shock.

    Let’s just hope our game isn’t one of the shocks

    United are developing in an interesting way, it has to be said. Now they have seem to have accepted their role as plucky underdogs and are actually a better team for it. They lose plenty of points against the shite, but they've used their counter-attacking football under Ole to beat Chelsea, Leicester and Spurs and draw against us and Arsenal. They have a chance against City, no doubt about it.

    Rashford, Martial and James can cause Man City problems for sure.

    If utd come out all confident and try and play football after the spurs result, city will absolutely batter them.

    Their only hope is a compact , deep set up with balls being pinged up to James /rashford / martial

    That's not just their only hope, its an actual fucking blueprint how every team (bar us) have taken points off them.

    Good solid defence. Check.

    Fast & direct attackers. Check.

    Ideally keep them from scoring long enough for their heads to go a bit, usually about 20 minutes (easier said than done!), then ping long passes forwards constantly done both sides, in the air & on the ground through the middle until their centre backs inevitably shit the bed when they're being run at again & again.

    It's worked enough times that every manager must be aware of it by now, but I'm not sure Ole has the tactical nous to be able to set up to occupy their team in the right areas to facilitate it.

    Ole's tactical skills is same as my singing on SingStar. I just don’t have it but as the tune goes up and down I am bound to hit it when my false tune cross it every now and then. Unfortunately Ole hit it at the midweek so I am pretty sure he will miss it today.

    I think City are going to get bummed today and lose all hope for this season.

    Has it been confirmed yet that beating them by 26 points this season gets us two titles?

    Unfortunately not, but apparently it would mean we start next season with a 26 point lead, and so the second title should be easier

    I actually think Utd stand a good chance. They are predominantly a counter attack team. That's the only way they know how to play.

    They beat Leicester, drew with us - by hitting us on the counter with pace up front.

    So yeah I hope City lose or draw.

    We'd better close the Everton relegation thread.
    They obviously mean to compete for the title o_O

    Jinxed it - "Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still believes they are a bigger club than Manchester City".

    Try to motivate the opposition the day of the match, ffs.
