And I'm afraid I'd swap Chelsea for Arsenal

Man C
Manchester United
Spurs
Arsenal

It seems Chelsea have found a way to get around UEFA's financial fair play rules by not qualifying for Europe :-P

To go down, I reckon

Wolves
Blackburn
Wigan

I still reckon Owen Coyle's got it in him to save Bolton.

I reckon Napoli, if they don't draw Milan. Cavani, Lavezzi and Hamsik is about as fine a front three in Europe as you'll find. Facing Barca who sneak through on a dodgy decision.

As for the Prem:

Man Utd
Man City
Arsenal
Spurs

United have much much more experience of how stressful a title run in can be, and I think City will crack under the pressure. Man Utd are up against Spurs next round of games, and when Utd win, Spurs will only be 4 points ahead of us.

For me its:

Man C
Manchester United
Tottenham
Chelsea

Best of the rest (outside top 6) id say Everton

Going down:

QPR
Wolves
Wigan

Really hope two of Wigan/Blackburn/Bolton dont go down, they are close for away matches :(. But Blackburn have yak upfront and are playing well, and Bolton seem to have more determination than the others.

nice new forum! quite a shocking change after ... 8 years! :)

Barcelona or Arsenal would be for me ... though as weird as it may sound, I also do have my sympathies for Chelsea :)

btw, what is the gossip regards Mou in the UK? today it made to the news he just bought a house in London.

pre olympics investment or is he preparing a move to Chelsea (?) for next season ?

attaboy! ;)

About Mou in London.. I don't read too much into it. I doubt very much he would end up in CFC again. Would make more sense if 'Arry was set for England and Mou were to énd up in Spurs.

Arsrnel 2 Liverpool 1
Kennys boys were fantastic in 2nd half, but could not find the net.

Van Persie was there when it mattered. 2 great goals from him.

In all a great match today..

Not so much for Arsenal fans. Yes we won, but it's the second game in a row we've conceded a penalty because a player on the other team dived. Also we've lost Arteta for an unknown period of time, and his replacement Diaby in the space of half an hour.

On the plus side, the pass for RVP's winner was Alex Song's 10th domestic assist this season. Not bad for a DM.

Just watched that on MOTD. The way Suarez went down screaming and holding his leg was a disgrace and it was this reaction that IMO influenced the ref to award the pen as from where he was couldn't have fully seen the "incident". I think it was Alan Shearer who described the contact as "brushing socks at best" :lol:

Great 2nd goal from RVP though.

i loved the dive, shows the premier league is not immune to it as many people had suggested ;)

good game, arsenal were a tad lucky, but did well in the end

RVP is a class player, hopefully arsenal can bring in some players over the summer !

Huh? Rooney and Gerrard are the worst offenders. Well, except Gareth 'better than Messi' Bale, who's been booked for diving twice already this season.

Everyone dives, it's a part of the game. I do find it hilarious that Gerrard claims he doesn't like divers when he dived in a CL final, and against Andorra of all people.

Diving must end. Players should be fined a big amount if found diving. It's getting worse.

it wasn't aimed at anyone here, just a few of my mates giving me grief is all :)

i really dislike diving and unfortunately for me, there are Barca players who do it (namely pedro, busquets and alves)

best course of action, get booed by their own fans, show its not acceptable

Yes, the Suarez dive was a disgrace and I'm a Liverpool fan.
He's so gifted as a player, so to do that is like an insult to his talent.

I thought Arsenel were crisp in the 1st half. Easily holding their own against the reds.

But in the 2nd half all Liverpool.
Anyway, it was 3 goals for Arsenel in the end and 3 points

Agreed. It is very easy to stamp out. Retrospective suspensions using video evidence are handed out for all manner of offences, so why not for diving? It is very easy to determine whether a player has dived when you have a slow motion replay and you can watch it again and again, and players will be more reluctant to dive to win a penalty if they know they'll get a ban.

why dont they start using the video REF in football.
I just dont get it honestly...

it would get rid off the diving and provide some additional suspense for the viewing spectacle.

Just dont make ense.
Can someone offer a valid reason why they DONT use video reffing in football.

i agree,the only way it would end is if a ridiculous penalty is imposed on them like a 20 game ban min and if it's only say 5 games left then the ban carries on to the following season,they'd think twice about diving if they know they could risk being banned for the rest of the season and fined.

Imo diving isn't necessarily that bad. It's annoying and frustrating, but there should be measures in place to stop it (competent referees, video evidence), so while UEFA/FIFA refuse to address those issues, people will always try to con the officials. It sucks, but a lot of the time it's difficult to judge in real time.
For me what needs to go first is the awful 'I've got a slight touch on the ball, so I can just go straight through the man' tackles. Football isn't a contact sport, but English teams love a tackle that gets studs on the ball, and sends the man flying.
Rubbish like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCbmnoPtgIs

What's the the previous edit - I never wrote the bold 8O

Anyway agree with the previous that diving needs to be stamped out and I am all for video evidence being used and if found guilty then issue bans. I don't think punishment of a fine would carry much clout footballers these days earn so much money the fines seem like pocket money.

Well there we go again then.
Now what? Rafa? x(
Who in their right mind would want that job now? Here I am dreaming of Mou or even Capello, but I quickly wake up. Imagine Capello and Roman together. Someone would end up stabbed.
Well, Chelsea heaven, Chelsea Hell. Atm the latter.

According to this the Rafa deal is off and Roman wants to make Pep the highest paid manager in football 8O

Well if Pep joins, you will probably find me in the nearest psychiatric hospital. I'd rather stick with Di Matteo.

Arsenal nearly pulled it off. Can't believe Van persie missed basically an open goal in the 2nd half. Still overall very well played Arsenal, especially since no one gave them half a chance..

Theo Walcott is useless 95% of the time!
