Bad news for Spurs Kane is injured it could be even one month break so he can miss CL games even
It's terrible news for Spurs. Kane isn't expected back to training until March, so it will be April before he playing again. He'll be out for both Dortmund games, the Carabao Cup and games against Chelsea and Arsenal. Moura is still injured, and Son is about to leave for the Asian Games for a month as well. All they've got left is Llorente, who is inconsistent at best.

Spurs will be very lucky to hold on to top 4 now, especially with the new run of from Man Utd find themselves in with OGS.

I'm not going to call Spurs a one-man team but this really is a devastating blow, but that's why you also need a world class bench if you're going to contend for the title as you can't just rely on one superstar. I think the battle is still going to be between City and Liverpool but Spurs could have gone on to do well in the Champions league. I think Dortmund will be too strong for them now especially without Kane.

With Kane out until March (missing the CL games and the league cup semi finals), Son on the Asian Cup for like a month, and Llorente being the only replacement in the foward position, I wonder if Daniel Levy will finally go and spend some money on a new signings...There's Morata who's currently looking for a new club, I think he would be a decent signing for Spurs, though if they want him, they better start moving now because Atletico Madrid is also interested in the spaniard.

Losing kane is big blow and their season could be over already, I just hope they'll at least be able to keep up the top four spot. About signing a new striker, I doubt Tottenham would be willing to splash out big cash on a striker like Morata, and Chelsea definitely wouldn't let him go cheaply either, the transfer seems like a dead end, They could however turn to Atletico Madrid where Nikola Kalinic is surplus to requirement despite just signing last summer.
Hmm, I wouldn't say that their season is over, they lose some goals with Kane injured, sure, but it's not like the rest of the squad can't score goals, Dele Alli, Eriksen, Moura, Lamela, and Son once he returns, they still have a lot of quality players to fight in both the EPL and the Champions League.

About Morata, yeah, I doubt Chelsea would want to strengthen Tottenham's squad. Kalinic could be a good choice, although he might be out of form since he barely plays this season.

No team is a one-man team but it's the equivalent of Barca losing Messi. Both are great teams but losing a world class  or even just your best player is devastating for anyone

I think you can rule them out of the PL title race now & no chance in the CL.
Btw, I have never put and predicted Tottenham as a potential champion in the PL, by losing Kane now then I think the results will still not be much different because Tottenham have players who are good enough in every line and I'm sure they can still maintain their position at least in the top 4 in the standings until the end of the season.

I wouldn't have bet on them for sure, but give them a few years and they might. They've been finishing second and third for quite a few seasons so all they need is that little extra push. They need to strengthen their squad and maybe they will as the transfer window is now open but I could see them winning or maybe narrowly missing out on the title within a few seasons. If Poch leaves for United though that would be a huge set back. I'm not sure he will leave though.

Aren't there already hundreds of topics asking this exact same thing in this section already? Losing money is part of gambling as is winning, but if you set yourself a weekly limit of say $25-$50 then does it really matter if you keep losing? To many that is worth the entertainment value alone. How many people go out for an evening and spend that sort of money on a meal or alcoholic drinks? I wouldn't say someone had a problem if they spent $25-$50 a week on entertainment or alcohol, especially if they enjoy it. It's the same with gambling. I gamble occasionally and I know my limits. If I lose I lose. If I win then great, but I don't ever chase my losses and I enjoy the process of making and researching my bets and then watching the games involved. It adds an extra level of excitement to the sport to me. If people are constantly losing money and not enjoying it and spending more and more money to try win their money back then they should stop because they probably have a problem. Most people can enjoy most addictive things in moderation like alcohol or gambling or even harder drugs, but if you're abusing them more and more then they're going to become a problem but only you can recognize that and people need to be in control of their own lives. Gamble for fun and entertainment and if it starts to stop becoming fun or too costly then stop before it becomes a problem and find something else to do with your time and money because it's only going to end badly.

That was quite a devastating defeat for Spurs and one I wasn't expecting, especially at home. It's certainly given a boost to City and Liverpool. I didn't watch the game but apparently Spurs were all over them and DeGea had the game of his season.

Well I remember now and I think now that the league is not as wide open as it seems. 4 points may look like a small difference in points but seeing the overall performance of Liverpool I think they will be the clear winners of the Premier League this year. The only chance, real chance for Manchester City is a direct match which will not happen anymore so I think Liverpool will end up winning the title this year.

4 points is four points. It's a win and a draw. Liverpool lost to Wolves a week ago and you can't be dropping points to those teams, so I disagree with you that it's not wide open because it really is. Either team can and have fudged up recently so anything can happen. I still wouldn't even rule out Tottenham at this point but losing Kane is a huge loss for them. If Poch stays on and doesn't leave for United and they strengthen their team for next season I think they'll be title contenders for sure and it'll be a three-way race.


snip

It might not be as easy as you think, Liverpool's team looks to be wearing out already, they're no longer as terrific and convincing as they were, and it's almost that time of the season where an in-depth squad will duly be needed Liverpool doesn't seem to have that and can't afford to rest or lose any of their star players to injury, from the edge I'm sure Man City has better chance due numerous players that could be called upon to give the most important players a needed rest without slipping up.

Liverpool have a very strong bench. Maybe not as strong as City's but I think Liverpool want this title more and have more fight in them. I think most neutral fans are also behind them as well.

Rated PSG a long time, there were team work based giant killers. Now they have a few giants of their own.
Think about Neymar jr. He can change any equation. Think of Mbappe, young skilled. His speed can crash any defense. France was a good team but Mbappe played the key role to win the world cup for France   

PSG has very good chance to win the match against Manchester United.

I don't like PSG, as I think they have the money to create a better squad than the current one. I think that a barrier may be that players do not consider the French League so competitive so they are discouraged to make a transfer there. Apart from that, I can agree that PSG has a great chance to win against Manchester United. Man. Utd still tries to find their pace after Mourinho left and i think they still need time to do so.

Players will go wherever the big money is. Just look at Neymar. He's only there in France for the huge paycheck. If someone offers him more money he'll go there next as soon as he can. I doubt he'll stay that long in France. He'll win a few seasons there, maybe hope for a Champions League or Ballon Dor win then move on - maybe to the Premier League or Bundesliga (and maybe finally China/USA where most star players seem to end their careers). As for the United game I think PSG will beat them in both rounds or maybe they'll scrape a draw at Old Trafford.



The problem with PSG I think is the fact that its players still see it as a small club, they have no respect for it. You have a guy like Verrati being arrested for DUI at 3 AM two days before a game, Rabiot saying he doesn't want to play 6, Neymar who misses practices to go to Ibiza...
That's probably why these guys have never been past the quarters in Champions League, they lack the professionalism. They're not winners. They care more about their Instagram account than about the results of the team.
They need a firm hand and that's not the one of El Khelaifi.
There are things players do at PSG that they probably would never do in "bigger" clubs.

Common, tons of players get int trouble for speeding and other reckless shit. Used to happen much more than it does now as well but it's certainly not limited to PSG. As for players swanning off on holiday the superstars can always do what they want and who's going to stop them? Ronaldo does it all the time too. He even often even misses international games if they're friendlies so he can go sun himself on a yacht somewhere. PSG don't win the Champions league because there's just half a dozen teams that are just  clearly leagues better than them. With that being said, I think they've got their strongest squad in years right now so a win fairly soon would not come as a surprise especially since Real aren't up to much since Zidane left. A PSG vs Liverpool would be a good final tie for me. Boring when the same handul of teams win it all the time.

Markets move, that's what they do, be it up, sideways or down. Right now we're getting dumped on hard, we can either accumulate more, hodl or sell.

This is all that really needs to be said on the matter. I can never fathom why people keep asking the same "why" question each time the price goes down because it's always the same answer. It all comes down to demand. The massive drops are always due to panic sellers though doing what they do best and panicing but when there's people selling there has to be people buying and it's those people who still have faith in bitcoin and know the score - bitcoin goes up and bitcoin goes down and there's usually always profit to be made in that. It was already up a few hundred dollars from a couple of weeks ago and I'm sure it will be the same in X time from now.

This week will be one of the most important ones ManU will have for the upcoming weeks, I mean there is still a lot of games left and anything could happen but if ManU wants to get back this is the week. Arsenal will play west ham and even tough west ham is 10th and been playing not so greatly recently they are still a decent team, if arsenal somehow gets a draw or lose than ManU will get back to the race a lot quicker than they anticipated.



The race to what? A Europa league place? This will be the first game that a team will actually challenge United as they've played only weak teams since Jose was sacked. I hope Spurs slaughter them.

Looking forward to all the games this weekend. I think Liverpool & Man City will derinitely win their games against Brighton & Wolves. Spurs COULD drop points though, they play Man Utd on Sunday.

I don't think Spurs will have any problem facing United at home, but it's the only game worth watching from this weekend.  I'd got with 2 or 3-1 to Spurs.

I've updated the spreadsheet to include 15 people! Sorry if you applied and weren't picked, if we decide to open up new spots or have to replace anyone I will message you. Anyone who is just seeing this thread feel free to apply still in case you are needed in the future! Smiley

I'd like to be considered if any more slots open up in the future. As you can see from my post history I make most of them in the Gambling section so I think this campaign would be perfect for me.

I honestly don't see the point in sacking Jose just to go with Solskjaer. Do they really think he's going to do any better and turn the club around by the end of the season? They should have just let him play out the Champions League at least and see how far he could have got them there. I don't think they've got a chance and probably won't get past PSG but they should at least given him that. I doubt Solskjaer will last very long either. They'll probably keep him till the end of the season unless he does something miraculous then hope a big manager like Zidane can be enticed with a fresh start.

^  The problem is who's replacing him?  I don't think Zidane is a good option (IMHO), Poch is not gonna be available (I think).  And apart from those two, there's Luis Enrique, Conte and Leonardo Jardim (this one I particularly like if rebuilding is the plan).

Pochettino isn't going to go to Manchester United. Why would he do that? There was speculation about him leaving for Real Madrid but I don't see why he would jump ship to Real when he's doing so well with Spurs. He's built them up into a team that has a real chance of winning the Premier League at some point and maybe they'll even have a chance at the Champions League eventually. Winning anything with Spurs would be a far bigger achievement than doing anything with United or Real and I think he should stay there. United should just stick with Jose too. I'm sure they'd take Zidane if he was available but I don't think he would do any better either. I wonder if Jose would ever go back to Real if he was let go? They're doing pretty poorly so I'm sure they'll be looking out for a new manager.

I believe the match between Tottenham and Manchester City will be exciting to watch, but the odds payout on Manchester City to win the match in full time is relatively low, even though Manchester City still did not lose any games in the English Premier League this season, Tottenham are still a strong team with high quality players in the team, it is not worth to take the risk to stake my money on Manchester City, I guess I will skip betting on this match and just enjoy the football action by both of these teams.

I thought it was quite boring. Fell asleep during it. The pitch was in a terrible state. They should have postponed the match until they've sorted the pitch. It was like a sunday league pitch in some parts.

^  It's not like the Spurs are an easy club to beat.  They have one of the best squads in the EPL imo...

Anyway something tells me that Mou will be back at Real next season and his first player acquisition will be...  *Drum roll* ...  Eden Hazard.  Hazard did say he wanted to work with Mou again.  Wink

If he can't do much at United then I don't think he'll be able to do much at Real either. I'm not sure Hazzard would want to go there now given their current standing. I think Real could be in big trouble if they don't turn things around soon. Imagine if they didn't even qualify for the champions league this year.

One of the best first-11s for sure, but their bench is one of the worst in the Big 6 (I'm looking through Reds-tinted glasses, of course).



Agreed, and I think that's why teams like City and Chelsea do so well because they have a bench of mostly world class subs they can bring on at any point. If a team like Spurs were to lose Kane through injury or suspension then they'd be screwed. Hopefully they'll be looking to strengthen their squad in the next transfer window.

Gunners defence is weak, Liverpool attack is finding form, Arsenal are weak in midfield. Fabinho is starting to look like a monster in the CM for Liverpool.

Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

I think it'll be closer. Could even see a tie but I think Liverpool will pip it by a goal. Arsenal have been playing pretty decent so far, and it was a shame about that late equalizer the conceded against Palace.

Trying something different and going for all away 1-0 wins. The away teams all seem to be the strongest this week and draws are too hard to predict though I expect a couple (& also of course some home wins). Hopefully I'll get at least one correct score right this week however  lol.
