Really Spurs?
 
2014-04-07 03:22:57 PM  
Well I was going to watch Spurs and then do homework, but after that goal I think I'll just do homework and pretend this game isn't happening.
 
2014-04-07 03:24:45 PM  
I just want to know who decided to put this match on a Monday night. I mean, what were they thinking?
 
2014-04-07 03:28:05 PM  
Spurs level
 
2014-04-07 03:28:56 PM  
Aaaaand Adebayor squares things at 1. Had to be coming spurs creating too many chances
 
2014-04-07 03:29:45 PM  
Thank goodness, Ade. Banker is in play again.
 
2014-04-07 03:30:03 PM  
Ya there is really no reason why this game would have any interest for a Monday night
 
2014-04-07 03:35:55 PM  
Adebayor is Spurs' top scorer with 9 goals.

Chelsea and United are still in Champs League and there is some deal where teams can't play during Champs League games that were once in the Champs league even if they are no longer in the competition.  There could also be a rule where every team needs to play at least one prime time Monday game like in the NFL.  Spurs also have a very big following so maybe it's a combination of all these things.
 
2014-04-07 03:54:10 PM  
How many people banked on Tottenham?

desertgeek: They just mentioned on NBCSN that if Man City finishes in the top 5, 6th place goes to Europa in the League Cup spot so that is confirmed.


Yep. There's a page with all the contingencies on the FA website somewhere, and it's terrifying. But the main two things to know are:

1) If the winner of the FA Cup is already qualified for the CL, the runner-up gets their Europa place. BUT if the winner of the League Cup is already qualified for the CL, the runner-up does not; the next qualified team in the league gets it. So if we make the reasonable assumption that Man City qualify for the CL, the Europa places go to 5th, 6th, and a team from the FA Cup.

2) If, hilariously, Man Utd were to win the CL and thereby qualify for next season as champions while finishing outside the top 4, the team in 4th would get bumped as the winner's league doesn't get a bonus place. So potentially it could be 4th, 5th and the FA Cup winners.

I know that Sky has to do a broadcast from the home ground of every team (and pay the money to the clubs to do so)  every season, even to the point that they have to pay a club the broadcast fee if they never visit. Happend to Norwich last year as Sky never visited but we still got the cash.

Princip's Sandwich: How many people banked on Tottenham?


just counted the first page and there are 12. Come on sunderland

Princip's Sandwich: How many people banked on Tottenham?


Not me. I banked on Sunderland winning (mainly due to forgetting to send in predictions before Saturday)
 
2014-04-07 04:17:51 PM  
And the Spurs score.
 
2014-04-07 04:19:43 PM  
No more scoring please. I need this perfect.

/I would accept a Sunderland win though, just for the possibility of Cardiff being 20th.
 
2014-04-07 04:24:39 PM  
So as it stands, Tottenham's GD on the year...is...-3?

That is absolutely farking despicable. Both Spurs and Newcastle should be taken back and shot for their absolutely awful offensive output this year given their talent.

/watch, Spurs actually develop some chemistry next year and do better.
//maybe
///or not
 
2014-04-07 04:32:08 PM  
For purely selfish reasons I want Spurs to score a couple more.
 
2014-04-07 04:32:12 PM  
Kane scores, and not a single JR call-out? I know there are some fWc farkers in here.
 
2014-04-07 04:36:56 PM  
And erikson gets one. That  should just about do it
 
2014-04-07 04:37:28 PM  
Dammit Sunderland. Ruined my perfect.
 
2014-04-07 04:39:34 PM  

Princip's Sandwich: Dammit Sunderland. Ruined my perfect.


This.

One more goal of any kind please.
 
2014-04-07 04:39:58 PM  

Sachbash: And erikson gets one. That  should just about do it


As one of the people who put my banker on this game, I'm hoping this scoreline stays, but it feels like there's one more goal in this game
 
2014-04-07 04:45:13 PM  
Called it

Ask and ye shall receive apparently.  I think I'm still out of the top 5, but by less than I would have been had people gotten perfects on this match.  Plus this helps with all the people biatching about GD for some reason.

Adebayor proves you right.

Very well done.
 
2014-04-07 04:51:11 PM  
Ah, so there's the fix for Tottenham that AVB couldn't figure out and took Sherman forever to himself; play Sunderland.

Killer Cars: Ah, so there's the fix for Tottenham that AVB couldn't figure out and took Sherman forever to himself; play Sunderland.


I'm really not poking fun at your typo, but I think we should just call him "Sherman" for the rest of the season.
 
2014-04-07 04:52:22 PM  
Shockingly, Spurs could now finish the season with a positive GD.
 
2014-04-07 04:54:21 PM  

star_topology: I'm really not poking fun at your typo, but I think we should just call him "Sherman" for the rest of the season.


I'd like to say it was intentional, but no, it was a clear cock-up. And, I'd be honored if it become his new moniker for the rest of the season.

A paltry +30 for the week. I blame Saturday.

Which is odd...it's Mourinho that builds tanks.
 
2014-04-07 05:17:23 PM  
Well for the first time in 3 weeks, forgetting to enter my Saturday predos cost me.  Overall, not too upset though and I just need to make sure I get the last 5 weeks in correctly.

+75 here. My banker on CP helped a little.

Maximum trolling: Everton finish 4th, but get bumped from the CL because Man Utd, against all probability, win the tournament. They and Arsenal (5th) go to the Europa League, in turn bumping Spurs (6th) from the competition. Spurs fans unsure whether to laugh or cry.

After reading this article, I'd almost love it if that happened.

/I actually want Everton to get 4th since I don't think Arsenal deserves to be in the CL.
//But if some people care more about a rival's accomplishments than their own team's possible accomplishment, screw them
