I have the same problem. I'm watching a Chelsea home game that's actually entertaining.

Not sure what makes me laugh more. Mourinho blatantly winding Liverpool up or the fact people are actually getting angry because they think he's serious.

Speaking as a neutral i'd rather see Liverpool win, they play attractive football that's interesting to watch (unless they're a goal down in which case they have moments where they just pass it around the back four for 20 minutes) Chelsea may be getting the results but they're seeming a bit lacklustre, dirty and boring. Mourinho's cult of personality hasn't been the dramatic league changing event the Chelsea fans expected and frankly if anything he's coming off as a sarcastic and sulky character who is 2 points behind league leaders but most people still don't perceive as much of a challenger or at least not as much as Liverpool who are in 5th.

A lot of people seem to have fallen into the trap of playing the media game.

I.e making predictions and reasoning for everything bar on the pitch.

Chelsea: Mourinho is back, they'll piss it has now become Ooh Chelsea aren't setting the league alight they're having an awful season and are terrible.

Liverpool: I think they'll do alright this season be interesting to see has become they started brilliantly and Suarez and Sturridge being supplied by Stevie G means they'll win the league for sure.

Arsenal: Now they've signed Ozil will get top 4 just about. Now become They've started well still need a striker though.

Man City: Between them and Chelsea. Now it's they're awesome at home but shit away.

Man United: Ironically the only consistent. Fergusson has left., They're gonna struggle.


In reality it seems more that Man City and Chelsea were pre season favourites and both are well poised to win the league.

Arsenal have taken everyone by surprise with just how well they've done, Giroud has been a bit or a revelation this season as has a rejuvinated and fully healed Ramsey. Lest we forget Podolski and Walcott have been missing for most of the campaign so far. Big issue for them is they've lost to both Manchester clubs and only drew with Chelsea. For a title challenge to be successful will surely need to beat those around them.

Liverpool have started great and are exciting to watch. In with a shout but haven't seemingly got the squad depth for a real challenge and lost to Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal.



Fuck all that anyway, Brentford go into 2014 top of the league so I'm happy :D

Thats the best part of this year I think. Noone knew what to expect before starting - last year it was kind of obvious Man United were gonna win, they didn't have the best squad but noone else really looked up for a challenge. It was pretty much over by Christmas, and was a pretty boring season after that. This year, everyone seems to have their issues, it seems much more open. Could go all the way to the end. Man City are the most likely though.

For sure it's great from a nuetral persepetctive.

Unlikley as it is but technically Everton, SOuthampton, Spurs and Liverpool could win the title if they put a run of wins together.


Not gonna happen but if they do go ona bit of a tear up then cpould make 4th place well interesting

Happier with the scores today.
The Toffees getting a last minute penalty did not please me though.

Arsenal might have sneaked a lucky win and the Liverpool, City and Chelsea games didn't go our way. But overall, I can't say I'm upset at beating Man U at Old Trafford :-)

Wolves lost last night which means we're still top of the league despite not playing this weekend :D
