Saturday football
The situation for the Toffees, currently occupants of the third relegation place, is anything but sweet and they’ll have to get their collective arse into gear if they’re to take something from this. Expect a Moyes-style approach with frustration of the opposition the cornerstone of their strategy. Away win.

The closest both sides have to a local derby. Expect the M23 to be full of second-hand Toyotas bearing blue and red flags and carrying pissed-up teens giving wanker signs to neighbouring traffic. Both sides are in the form doldrums, but you’d think Brighton are better equipped to emerge from there victorious. Home win.

The gap between Burnley and safety is starting to look insurmountable. Which is a pity. That is, it may be. Or may not be. Both sides have taken four points from their last six outings. Make that five from their last seven. Draw.

It’s hard to like Luton, but you have to admire them for having climbed out of the bottom three and giving themselves a decent shot at survival with a little over one-third of the season remaining. Tenacity more than innate skill will see them to another season in the top flight, but they’ll have to steal every precious point from the likes of Newcastle if they’re to avoid what seemed a certainty a few weeks ago. Home win.

Few would bet on the Blades escaping the drop. Villa’s eyes are set on loftier pastures and will overtake Spurs into fourth if they win today and score more than the London side. Which they should. Away win.


Forest remain firmly in the relegation mix despite trying hard to recruit their way out of it. That’s not going to happen, though, and they’ll find the Cherries far from the compliant fodder they were a few short months ago. As we know. Bastards. Home win.

Wolves were unlucky to concede a very late winner at home to Man U on Thursday. They visit a Chelsea side that only intermittently reflects the massive amount of money that’s been poured into their playing staff. Chelsea should win, but would you bank on it? Only with Monopoly money. Home win.

Man U will have their peckers up after grabbing an injury time goal that saw them leave Molineux with all three points at the same time as our peckers pointed limply in the opposite direction after a drab draw at home to Bournemouth. We all know about Moyes’ record at Old Trafford, one that’s unlikely to change today. Home win.

This should be a corker. Arsenal will have to win this – or at least get a draw – if they’re to remain in the title race. Two good footballing sides, plenty of sub-plots and a classic English top-flight fixture. What’s not to like? Answers on a large postcard. Draw.


The Bees are closer to relegation than to mid-table, but go into this knowing that they did the double over City last season. This time round they find themselves in a poor run of form while the visitors have won their last eight. Not an even tie. Away win.


A narrow win over Bristol City last night propelled Leeds into second place, but having played more than both Ipswich and Southampton below them. Leicester show no sign of relinquishing their grip on the top place. Their lead is now nine points, leaving Leeds, Ipswich and Southampton in hot pursuit of second. Just two points between the three of them. At the other end, Birmingham are in 20th and have a four point advantage over Huddersfield with QPR, Sheff Wed and Rotherham occupying the bottom three spots. It’s going to be tight, as it always is in this division. Pompey, Bolton and one other are waiting to take their places.

In today’s games, Leicester visit lowly Stoke, Ipswich go to Preston and the Saints travel to rock-bottom Rotherham. Millwall visit Hull, who are in the play-off battle. Can Coventry (6th) cut the mustard on their visit to Norwich? West Brom host Brum in another Midlands derby. Their fans better be on their best behaviour.

Michail Antonio on MNF in a fetching Frank Spencer beret
Is he ever going to play again or has he retired to the world of podcasts and punditry?
Has to be his last season with us

What is Antonio wearing on his head? His inner Frank Spencer?

Re: Saturday football
Some players just need a change of scenery, manager or playing style
Like Ross Barkley at Luton

Brentford are getting a tune out of Maupay when Everton failed to do so. Everton 29 games with 1 goal then returns to Brentford 19 games and 7 goals..

Pochetino at our club -must be his pass link with Spurs doing it.

Re: Saturday football
Maybe Chelsea need a more experienced elder statesman type of manager with a European trophy already in his locker.
He could also take his talismanic midfielder with him.

Pochetino the other way ?

Re: Saturday football
It will be interesting to see how Potter does when he eventually gets another chance. He was slated for his time at Chelsea but Tuchel & Poch have probably helped show that Chelsea with its misfits is more a lost cause than a blot on a cv..

Re: Saturday football
It's strange what's happening to Chelsea. How can a squad with so much assumed talent mess up so badly, despite having renowned managers?

Manuel 8:33 Mon Feb 5
Re: Saturday football
So could Poch get his cards? they are a mess but you feel it won't matter who the manager is now, club seems rotten to the core these days. They have Palace away next week.

Re: Saturday football

They play at the Hive now in Edgware (a ground that was originally intended and three quarters built by Wealdstone before the money run out)

There old ground was Underhill on the great north road which is now a school.

Re: Saturday football
Do Barnet still play at that ground at the bottom of the hill? (Can't remember the name.)

Re: Saturday football
I was at a hostile local derby game Barnet v Wealdstone yesterday

A ninety ninth minute equaliser pyrotechnics pitch invaders rolling around with stewards and then being locked in for 15 minutes at the end and not a bowl of popcorn in site

Old school unsanitised and great fun.

Funny enough my ticket for this game (£22) was more than I paid to watch West ham on Thursday (£20)

I see Southgate was in Holland watching Henderson. FFS.

*waits for simple optimist Sold to spin that into a positive.

*ponders *

Errrr... nope got me there Manny son....

Like yourself I like GS but IF TRUE him popping over to Clogland to watch Hendo then he needs a damn good shoeing...

Manuel 6:04 Sun Feb 4
Re: Saturday football
I'm actually not a Southgate hater, and without going into it all I think he's done alright overall and fancy we will win the Euro's. I think he can make the big calls sometimes, he's bombed out Sterling and Mount and think he will bring in Palmer, but he clearly has his favorites and going out to watch 'Hendo' is just mad and he isn't doing himself any favours.

Sydney_Iron 5:16 Sun Feb 4
Re: Saturday football
Defies belief really, all that English talent on display across the PL yesterday and Waistcoat pops over to watch Henderson, a player he has seen so many times and knows inside out.

I reckon the squad for the Euros is already picked, Southgate is the international version of Moyes and will choose the same bunch no matter what.

Any young kid pulling up tress will get overlooked until Euros 24 is finished and England go out hero's in the quarters or semis.

We’re definitely punching in a poor premier league this season.

Any Old Iron looks like the 6th position is the best we can achieve this season.
