Can't see how we don't win this game 4-0 or even 5-0 with our rock solid CB duo

I feel an incoming thumping for Spurs.

It’s going to be tough with all those injuries to play a high line and relentless attack against the best team in the world.

If only there was some other way.

Our feeder club is going to thump us.

I don't think so. I'm tempted to put $50 on Chelsea for this one.

We were already missing a bunch of players and now Dunk and Fati will also be missing for this one.

van Hecke will be our only fit CB.

If ever there's a time to beat us it's this weekend.

They might as well let us win. Points will only be stripped anyway when they're getting sent to the Vanarama league.

Can't think of too many games against Spurs at home that haven't been pretty miserable affairs for us.

Chance for us to get revenge for their cheating that deprived us of a top 4 spot in 2010.

Yeah Spurs have a pretty good record against City don't they?
Mainly at home though, they still haven't scored at the new stadium. We generally either get smashed away or pull off the occasional surprise win

Wolves will be back on top of the "apology table" this week. Officials confirm to O'Neil Vinicus head contact on Kilman should have been a red, first Fulham pen shouldn't have been given, Ream should have been sent off.

5 games they have apologies for now, Wolves called them out after the 3rd game against Newcastle and since then they got dudded badly against SHU and now been really badly ****ed over against Fulham.
Hard for Wolves fans not to take this personally and see this as deliberate from PGMOL.
While they weren't guaranteed points in those 5 matches, thats 9 points potentially dropped. That has them in 6th and pushing Europe, not sitting in 12th.

For Fulham, with how bad the bottom 3 are and Everton being slapped with the deduction, this might be one of those seasons where a low points total will still keep you safe. The lowest amount of points that avoided relegation was WBA with 34 in 04/05, but 37 points has been the safe spot for like 16 or so of the last 20 odd seasons.
And Fulham are 22 points off that. Unless they have an injury crisis they should get wins against the s**t teams and enough draws to be safe.

Honestly I am glad O'Neil is saying something.
I don't believe refs cost teams relegation/promotion over a season, or even an individual result necessarily, but can be hugely consequential in games like this.

As a non big 4/6 fan, it's a ******* joke how poor VAR can be.
Our VAR rip-off vs City probably didn't cost us points, but probably a couple of goals in GD which can always be important.
For Wolves this game, I feel Penalty #1 was absolutely not a pen; Penalty #2 should have been a penalty (but I feel that if we were against Arsenal/City it wouldn't have been paid).

Bentacur out for 3 months with ankle ligament damage.
Spurs just cannot take a trick.
Does Ange try to defend v Man City?

The players that do play though all know that if they play well in this game, there is a big chance of a big money move in January

These are also the games Chelsea wins, and people think they are on the right track before they drop points to a lower ranked team the week after.
