Spurs Will NEVER Be A Big Club! | Rory Jennings | My Unpopular Opinion

After reaching last season’s Champions League final and moving into a brand new stadium, Tottenham Hotspur can now be considered one of the biggest teams in the Premier League. Or can they?

Chelsea fan Rory Jennings has his say, and he certainly does not hold back. With four consecutive top four finishes, Spurs have been a whisker away from their first ever Premier League win but Rory reckons they shouldn’t be spoken about in the same sentence as the greatest top flight clubs.

Their inability to convert great chances to win trophies, and their long wait for any meaningful trophies means that they simply cannot be thought of as THAT big a club. Although Spurs’ ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino took their team to new heights, he struggled this season, which saw him being sacked.

Now with Jose Mourinho in the hotseat, and the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli on the pitch, can we expect to FINALLY see some major trophies for the “third best team” in London? Do you reckon Spurs are overrated – or is the best yet to come?


David de Gea Is FINISHED | Steven McInerney | My Unpopular Opinion

David De Gea is widely considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world, yet Man City fan Steven McInerney thinks he is completely past it and has not developed his skill set to compete in the modern era.

By Manchester United’s high standards, it has been a shaky start to the season with the Red Devils currently languishing in mid-table, and Steven McInerney (Esteemed Kompany) reckons De Gea’s confidence has gone AWOL.

He argues the De Gea of the past would not have let these results shake him but as a result, he is making mistakes that are completely out of character and has been detrimental to United’s season so far.

McInerney also highlights De Gea’s competition, including the likes of Ederson, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Manuel Neuer to be better suited to football’s present style of play.

He thinks the United shot stopper simply does not have the all-round game to match his rivals. What do you think – Is De Gea past it?


Arrogant Klopp Is WAY Inferior To Guardiola! | Adam Partingdon | My Unpopular Opinion

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp are regarded as two of the top football coaches in world football right now, yet Everton fan Adam Partingdon - surpsise, surprise - thinks Guardiola is “a million times better” than Klopp.

Partingdon launched a broadside at Klopp ahead of the Merseyside Derby, which could see underfire boss Marco Silva given the bullet should the Toffees lose to the Reds, and pulled no punches, despite Klopp winning nearly universal praise for leading Liverpool to their sixth Champions League in 2018/19 season and on the brink of sealing a first league title for 30 years.

He thinks Pep is not only a better manager but also a better person and cites the Spaniard’s handling of Raheem Sterling after the FA Cup final last season as one prime example why.

Guardiola was captured having an animated discussion with Sterling, trying to improve the Englishman, despite having won the FA Cup just seconds earlier after Man City’s 6-0 thumping of Watford in the final.

Is it sour grapes from a bitter Evertonian or does he have a point?


Selhurst Park Has The Best Atmosphere In The Premier League! | Harvey Jones | My Unpopular Opinion

Selhurst Park is known for having a lively atmosphere and Palace fan Harvey Jones reckons the atmosphere is better than any other ground in the Premier League – including the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Old Trafford, Anfield or The Emirates!

He reckons spending £1bn+ on the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, or The Emirates boasting the most expensive season ticket, does nothing to make up for their silent fans.

With one of the smallest capacities in the league at 25,456, do you agree with Harvey that Selhurst Park really is the most atmospheric in the league?


Harry Kane Is BETTER Than Alan Shearer | Expressions | My Unpopular Opinion

Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in world football and this Tottenham Hotspur fan thinks he is already better than current all-time Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer.

He argues Shearer only ever scored tap-ins and in today’s VAR climate would have struggled to score as many as Kane has to date.

Kane has scored 130 goals in 188 Premier League appearances, half the number of the 260 goals Shearer notched across 441 appearances for Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, and Kane is on course to overtake the Match of the Day pundit’s goal tally.

Shearer won the Premier League with Blackburn in 1994/95 but Kane has only ever been a runner-up in his career.


James Milner Is The BEST English Midfielder! Rants N Bants | My Unpopular Opinion

James Milner has often gone under the radar behind the likes of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard in England's midfield - but should the Liverpool man be more appreciated than he is?

Manchester United fan Rants N Bants has put club allegiances aside, and has called Milner the BEST English midfielder of the past 10-15 years, due to his versatility and consistency at the top of the game.

Does the Premier League and Champions League winner deserve more respect? And should he be spoken about as an English PL legend?


Anthony Martial Is The WORST Buy In Premier League History! Tayo | My Unpopular Opinion

Anthony Martial signed for Manchester United for £50m in 2015 and this Liverpool fan thinks he is the most overrated, overpriced signing in Premier League history.

United fans claimed Martial was their saviour BUT the Frenchman’s best return in one Premier League season is 11 goals which Tayo argues is not good enough. What do you think, has Martial been a good signing for United?


Conor Coady Should START For England At Euro 2020! Dave Azzopardi | My Unpopular Opinion

England are top of their EURO 2020 qualifying group and look to be cruising through to the tournament next summer.

BUT Wolves fan Dave Azzopardi thinks Conor Coady would improve the defence and increase the Three Lions’ chance of lifting their first major trophy since the World Cup in 1966.

He reckons the Wolverhampton Wanderers captain is one of the best passers out of any Premier League defender and backs him to make up for the “slow” Harry Maguire and “unreliable” John Stones and improve that England side.

Do you think Conor Coady would be a good addition to the England squad?


The Championship is MORE EXCITING Than The Premier League! iLukas | My Unpopular Opinion

Aston Villa may be back in the Premier League after a three year absence, but super fan iLukas is already missing the Championship!

He reckons the second tier is way more exciting than the Premier League, which he says has become dull and predictable, with the grounds soulless and the atmosphere lacking.

He says that going to old grounds like Leeds United’s Elland Road is better than going to stadiums like the Emirates and prefers the unpredictability of the Championship.

Would you prefer your team to be scratching around at the bottom of the Premier League or rocking the Championship?


Pep Guardiola Is An UNDERACHIEVER! Hugh Wizzy | My Unpopular Opinion

Do you think Pep Guardiola has underachieved in his career?

Abramovich Is The Problem - He Needs To Go NOW! My Unpopular Opinion | NiiNii

In a searing piece to camera, NiiNii says it's time for the Russian oligarch to step aside and sell the club, as his heart appears to no longer truly be at Stamford Bridge. What do you think? Is it time for Abramovich to sell Chelsea?
