As we had so little Premier League games, I felt it was dumb to do our classic 'Three Stars of Matchday __" blog so with how crazy this week/weekend was in England, I think it was only fair to talk about the five biggest talking points from a historic and amazing week.
Side Note: Sorry this came out late, I wanted to wait as much time as possible to get all the news I could on Harry Kane.
Five: Arsenal Fans Keep Up "The Wenger Out Protests"
I am so fucking over this like I used to love making jokes constantly about the "Wenger in/out" debates on Arsenal FanTV but now its just stale. It's so sad; nothing made me happier on a Saturday night than making some popcorn and watch Social Media burn down when Arsenal lose but now it's just a bit dull. The best part of ArseanlfanTV and other people who do what they do is that so many of these people are so delusional and stupid they didn't have any self-awareness to think "You know what? I'm Kind of being an idiot" but now these dicks are making these "Wenger Out" jokes too mainstream as people in America, and other countries are holding signs up at MLS matches, Protests and Rally's, and yes, at first it was funny but, now it's losing its luster. Can Arsenal sack Wenger already so they can just drop down to mediocrity? Sad!
Four. Friendly Reminder Not To Poke The Bear That Are Millwall Supporters
This game was a fucking mess. We had Striker injured, awful abuse from the crowd, fighting, Vincent Janssen scoring and much more. But the one moment that sticks out to me was what happened before the match when two Spurs fans decided it would be a good idea to chant "Fucking Hate Millwall" at a group of their fans. I think you can guess what happened!
Okay, before we start I obviously don't condone any violence against anyone but what the fuck did this guy think was going to happen? Have you seen Green Street? Have you seen The Football Factory? Like God, what were these two thinking? You are outnumbered by at least hundred, and you decide to take the piss out of most likely the craziest fans in England? This just makes zero sense, I have done my fair share of this, but I did it surrounded by fans of my team! Like this guy is just so stupid. I hope for this guys sake, the punch made him sane so he can realize how dumb this was.
Three: We Are In For The Best Relegation Battle in Recent Memory
Besides Sunderland who I think have already got their ticket to the Championship next season the other two spots are wide open. From 19th place (Middlesbrough) to 15th place (Leicester) is only separated by five points. The teams who are in this relegation dogfight are Middlesbrough, Hull City, Swansea, Leicester, and Crystal Palace. Obviously, all of these teams have weaknesses so we will assess all of these teams strength and most importantly, their flaws.
Boro - Decent defensively but can't score goals.
Hull City - Too inconsistent in goal scoring and need to scrape more draws from mid-table teams.
Crystal Palace - Defense is in shambles, but they have Benteke so they should be safe.
Swansea City - I think they are the most out of the battle as they seem a lot better, So I guess you are safe Swansea.
Leicester - Inconsistent and an incredibly easy team to find out their tactics.
This is going to be a hectic finish, who do you think will go down? We will doing a full blog on this soon! So stay tuned!
2. The FA Cup Is Going To Be Amazing
The FA Cup Semi-Final is going to be otherworldly; we have a fierce London Derby in Tottenham vs. Chelsea and another massive clash in Arsenal vs. Manchester City. We don't see many times that every single club left is a top six teams in the biggest league in the world. The craziest part of this is the chance of a North London Derby final in what may be Arsène Wenger's final year, which would be amazing. Every single team has narratives that would make for an amazing story and for the neutral, this is going to be orgasmic to watch. Of course, we will bring everything you need to know for these matches.
One: Harry Kane Injured
As I am writing this, we still don't exactly know how long Harry Kane will be out for, but it seems like it could be for a while or even for the entire season. This injury changes everything, from the Champions League spots, title race, Golden Boot race and the FA Cup. So, IF Kane is out the huge question first is can Tottenham still even make Top Four as this race is so close? They will, Dele Alli, Son and Eriksen all have been chipping in loads of goals, and even though losing Kane will be terrible, I think if their defense can keep playing at a top level so they SHOULD be fine. In saying this, if Spurs don't have Kane in six weeks for the FA Cup it could be really bad as of right now, can you trust Vincent Janssen? A week or so ago I put all my eggs in one basket about Harry Kane, and I still believe he is the best striker in the Premier League but as he may be out for an extended period I think you need to look at Romelu Lukaku as the betting favorite to get the honors at the end of the season. This season just got more hectic for Spurs fans (which didn't seem possible).
