    Slimani is a good get. A true number 9.

    Wow. Awesome, and it even digs in the ownership subtly.

    Brighton signed a few striker options, but nothing that jumps out at you. I feel like we're a very good bet to go down.

    I've heard others say the same about them, Huddersfield, and West Brom in particular. Oh, and Newcastle, too. I THINK the Mags did enough to stay up, between Kenedy and Slimani, but it's a razor margin. Huge measuring stick against Palace away this Sunday.

    I think many share in your frustration. Their match is on sky tomorrow. I anticipate a good one!

    With the way results are holding, it is a must to get points. Really a must win.

    A point away at Palace.

    Newcastle a tad lucky to get away with a point. Shelvey made a clear penalty late in the box, much worse than the first one that was given. Zaha gave Yedlin and Ritchie major fits, but no other palace player seemed able to score without a penalty.

    Yeah, lucky to escape with a point. I'll take it. I'd also chew my arm off to get a point against Man U.

    For sure. More poor officiating in that game too. Zaha and Benteke missed some of the easiest chances they will see all year.

    Still no Slimani from the thigh injury. Thanks, Jabba the Ashley, for backing us so much when we were depserately in need of a striker. Thanks for bringing in an injured striker, ON LOAN, and...nothing else at the position. Way to back your manager in this relegation fight. Now Gayle is still starting and Joselu is our only other option on the bench. Against Man U. Thanks, you fat f*!k up.

    Big upset today. Good goalkeeping and good defending. I thought Newcastle started very promising as well. Shelvey had a nice game. Not sure what the issue was with pogba. Don’t know if he was faking an injury to take a day off or if he was really hurt then why play.

    ENORMOUS victory, and a HUGE 3 points. Newcastle leap up 6 places from that win. The refs were incredibly poor in the 1st half and seemed to be trying to cost Newcastle points. I was almost certain we would lose after that--teams in the bottom of the table NEED the dead-certain penalty calls to go their way--but the refs were better in the 2nd half (save for the red card foul that produced NO card), and Newcastle snatched a deserved 3 points.

    Mourinho STILL has not won at SJP, in (I think) 10 tries now.

    Your victory and our win brought us within 2 points of Man U. Closing in on 2nd.
