    Great weekend for Newcastle with Liverpool beating Spurs and Chelsea and Utd losing. Up to 3rd now and staying there even if the teams below win their games in hand.

    Arsenal showing they will at least be around the top 2 for a good while yet with that performance against Chelsea, who looked poor. Liverpool looked good with Nunez and Salah both seeing better form. Spurs’ habit of conceding first every game is coming back to bite them. Can’t do a comeback in every match.

    Crazy to think only one week of games left until the world cup kicks off. Feels very low key at the moment with little hype or interest in it this time of year.

    People still focused on the live season. Usually we get a break after the finals before a summer World Cup where hype can build but no time in this case. Must be hard for players who are giving everything for their club in the final game before, and then a few days later could almost be already out of the World Cup with an opening game loss if they don’t switch focus effectively enough.

    I'm not gonna watch any World Cup myself. The decision to play it in Qatar and having it in November/December just was the final nail in the coffin for me I think.

    There's a few there lucky to be going with the squad given the season they are having *cough* Maguire *cough* but its about as strong as we can get really, Wilson seems to have got lucky with injuries at just the right time for him and Madison is having too good of a season to be ignored.

    We might have a chance in the league cup with City and Liverpool facing each other and only Utd left from the top clubs.

    Incredible result for Brentford and well Arsenal, they really do have a shot at the title now after this, especially if they can win their game. Will set up the second half of the season nicely indeed when it resumes. Haaland really has made City a worse side overall after all the hype. :o

    Newcaslte in the mix for the top 4 is going to make the second half of the season potentially a little bonkers. Shame this world cup is getting in the way to be honest.

    Amazing result away to City for Brentford. The PL just isn't the easy to predict week to week. Really hope Arsenal can maintain their push.

    Some good results for Bournemouth, Forest and Leicester, the bottom of the table is changing a bit these days.

    Spurs with another comeback and needed as well to at least end their first part of the season on a high note, keeps them in the top 4 debate at least.

    Newcastle v Chelsea is up next and a pretty big game...

    Newcastle 1-0 away to Chelsea. It’s a weak team lineup and we’re still playing well away.

    Massive win for Newcastle, really made a statement with that and could easily have won by more. Chelsea are a little bit of a mess but Newcastle made the most of it, they really have a shot at the top 4 now. All set up nicely for part two of the season, not as cut and dried as it first seemed earlier in the season.

    Can’t believe we’ve won nearly every match in the run up to the World Cup including some hard fixtures. Our squad isn’t even that good, just looks at today’s front 6 apart from Bruno. We are really over performing through team spirit and team pressing.

    Yep. City also aren’t smashing teams away at the moment so the league is still alive for now. Was worried it would be over at this stage.
