    We’ve matches Bob’s wonderful team of the 80’s record of unbeaten in 25 games in all comps.

    How high does it rate on club achievements?

    How long can it last?

    Can we start to dream of multiple trophies this season or even an unbeaten season?

    On our day we are a match for anyone.

    Mods can you put the children to bed?

    We’ve matched an unbeaten run that stretched back 40 years and people are crying about jinx

    To answer your first question, it feels meh. Only because we seem to be dropping massive points from winning positions. The league is full of shite. And we have shitty league cup fixtures with completely changed sides. It’s gone under the radar because it’s a bit meh.

    So not highly at all.

    It’s literally the best and most competitive league in the world and by some distance now.
    English sides are dominating both the CL and the Europa League and I’ve no doubt Spurs under Conte will win the conference cup or whatever it is.
    It’s literally the most Competitive the league has ever been.

    If it’s so competitive why are talking about winners closing in on 100 points?
    Norwich
    Burnley
    Newcastle
    Watford
    Leeds
    Villa
    Southampton
    Palace
    Everton
    Even Arsenal and Spurs

    All absolutely dross.

    I'd say Dreamy was a stupid cunt and a numpty, but he does this on purpose.

    Going that many games unbeaten is obviously good, but I can't get too excited about it. That may be because it is split over the end and the start of 2 seasons. We scraped third place last season and we are not even top of the table at the moment

    Like Ole, I couldnt care less.

    If we don't win this season, no one will remember an unbeaten streak.

    If we do beat City and Chelsea to the toyle, then it would be amazing regardless of how we did it.

    I'd say, having watched both era's that it's much harder now to rack up an unbeaten run. All things progress and teams outside the top 4/6 are more competitive. Got West Ham up there, Leicester. Brighton even. Not undermining Bob's day but now there's so much more at stake.

    More money coming in through Newcastle. Teams like Spurs won't tolerate being out of top 4. Everton as well. It's all high drama. Can't take anything for granted, no easy games. While in Bob's day the games were more physical but more predictable.

    We won the league 7 times in the 80's..not knocking it, it wasn't easy but now it's a battle even to stay in top 4.

    Now compare them to the also rans in the other European leagues, mate...

    Hate to side with Pat ;) but not sure where you're getting this from - This league is incredibly competitive:  Crystal Palace just beat City, away.  Brighton should have done us.  Brentford should have gotten something against the Chavs last week, etc...  There are very, very few easy games anywhere, anymore.  Compare this to any other European leagues, where I can't even name most teams beyond the top 3 or 4 in each country.

    Don't think it's an exaggeration to say that, possibly Bayern Munich aside, the top three teams in England are the most feared teams in the world.  And 4th to maybe 9th or 10th would be favourites for those other European tin pot trophies.

    And I don't think too many people are predicting a 100 point champion this season...Norwich, Newcastle and Burnely aside, It's absolutely NOT a shite league anymore.
