    I was hoping for a tie for this very reason, but my fantasy team could really of had a goal and/or assist from Ramsey, Ozil or Giroud. As long as Chelsea doesnt win the league i will be happy, if they are out of the top 4 and Gerrard gets the EPL title he deserves i will be ecstatic.

    Happy Christmas YNWA

    Off to Goodison. A chance to go top over the next 2 matches, especially with Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea all playing each other.

    So now that most European teams are at/past the midway point of the season, how has it gone for your club? Where do you hope to end up in the league come May? Any cups you think your team can win? January transfer possibilities?

    I'm more than a bit surprised that we're still top of the PL after 20 games, and while my heart says we can hold on to win the league my head is saying that City's depth (and if they can sort out their away form) will tell in the end. We have a truly brutal run of games at the end of March where we play Bayern away in the 2nd leg of CL and then Spurs (A), Chelsea (A), City (H), and Everton (A) in the league, but if we can get between 7 & 10 points from those league games I think we can be in the mix for the title at the end of the season.

    Well...Juventus got eliminated from the CL...so that is a wrap on interesting points in their season. Europa cup is whatever. They should win Serie A without too much struggle. MY EPL team is Arsenal and you pretty much summed that up above.

    Also nervous Pogba will be sold sometime this year.

    Liverpool are about where I expected them to be. Some big decisions went against them in big games (recall of the quick free kick against Arsenal, no red or penalty on eto'o in the 1st and 88th minutes against Chelsea), but they've shown their first XI can hang with the best in the league. The run of injuries they've picked up over the past month+ shows a serious lack of depth though. They won't address all their needs this window, but if they're able to pick up a solid attacking midfielder and another goal scorer to put up front, they should remain in the top 4 with ease. Two great things going for them now are the approaching return of the SAS partnership and a favorable second half schedule. Not only are the three teams ahead of them playing in the UCL, but Liverpool has the rest of the top 8 (with the exception of Man U) coming to Anfield for their second league fixtures, where Liverpool have lost points just once this season. I'm not expecting a finish higher than 3rd, but I wouldn't completely rule out a return to the top at some point.

    I'll be sure to remember that as Liverpool slip into mid-table mediocrity again next season when you have European football to contend with and no Luis Suarez to bail you out

    Losing Theo for the season is certainly a big, big loss for us, as it appeared he'd taken another positive step forward in his development. The only silver lining, if I can even call it that, is that Poldi is back playing again, the Ox is back in first team training, and Gnabry looks the real deal. I imagine his injury is also really going to force Wenger's hand in terms of buying a quality new striker/attacker this January which he probably would have put off until the summer had Theo been out for a shorter time.

    But fuck man, this is really terrible news. He's out of the World Cup too.

    Snippy. Is the increased likelihood of another trophy-less season getting to you? I do feel bad for the guy though. Timing couldn't be worse for him.

    In better news, Sturridge is set to return Sunday vs Stoke. Can't wait to watch the SAS duo in action again.

    Just in shock, really - I don't think anybody thought it would be this bad when it happened originally, and then word was that he'd be out for about a month with a strained ligament.

    Predictions for the League Cup semi first legs today and tomorrow? Thankfully for United they are playing a team in even worse form than they are!

    could be a "shock" victory for Sunderland. Don't really know what a shock victory is with United anymore. They seem just to roll over for anyone nowadays.

    I honestly feel for Moyes. He doesn't deserve the criticism leveled on him, I understand that everyone loves to see where they are at now since they were "the" team to hate (in my book its Chelsea but whatever) but I feel for the guy.

    It's a weird one with Moyes; on the one hand he has to be given time to adjust to the role, but when you look at the "negative records" he's setting this season (I think it's three or four teams now who have won at OT which hadn't done so in decades) you have to wonder what's going on over there. Is he out of his depth? Are the players not buying into his system?

    Also TCHY, what's your take on La Liga so far? That Ateltico v Barca game this weekend should be a great one!

    Atletico to take the league for the 1st time since 1995. Provided they aren't tempted to sell anyone in Jan.

    Bold prediction! If Barca can add to their defense this month does that change your prediction? That's the part of the team which still seems to be their undoing.

    Nope. Atletico play with an urgency that Barca are lacking. Maybe Messi coming back will help? Even then, they held Real Madrid so...

    I find it really hard to believe that there wasn't another European team somewhere willing to at least take him on loan. I realize he hasn't been playing much at Roma, but wow, that's certainly a step backwards.

    Is it though? I don't see it that way. It is a WC year, and he wants to be in the best form possible. MLS preseason will start up in a few months, and the season will be in full swing once the WC begins. Spot starting at Roma wouldn't be the most ideal.

    Nice to see the one thread I started is still alive and kicking.

    I can understand why he wants to leave Roma, as he's even further down the pecking order now that they bought Nainggolan; what I'm surprised at is that there wasn't another European-based club who wanted to take him on loan for the remainder of the season, as he's still a talented player and if he has a good WC his potential value in the summer market could rise. Maybe that $10 million offer MLS made was one Roma felt they couldn't refuse?

    So does Messi start tomorrow, or will he be used as an impact sub again like he was midweek? Game kicks off at 2PM PST btw.
