    Not sure they'll sack him just before a cup final but you never know with Chelsea. Got a bad feeling he'll end up getting the chop in April after some daft bust up. Absolute *****. Backed Man Utd tonight and had it pay out before half time due to them going 2 up. Threw the lot on Dortmund almost certain they were going to win and they didn't. Late disallowed goal too.

    The ever obliging Leicester City

    We could get absolutely battered if we play the obliging Leicester role. Benteke, Batshuayi and Schlupp all in with good chances of scoring. That one at home to them last season. No away goal in 9 months then come here and win 0-3 it's so bad it's funny

    The ever obliging Leicester City

    I cynically had a fiver on him to score in the 5-0 but cashed it back out once he was on the bench. Comes on with 85 minutes played. Still scores.

    That is also fair, he also had a very good game as well if I remember rightly.

    The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

    It's quite telling really about the state of certain aspects of football when you do get idiots like those you mentioned in jobs for precisely those reasons. Sky are a great example of this with Paul Merson for example. Creating a product and manufacturing controversy rather than actually talking about good football. It's pretty embarrassing that they would rather have someone on because they probably say "Gonzalo Higuwan" rather than what he could actually bring to Chelsea.

    Andy Brassell is very decent.

    Why did Hibs even bother playing on?
  9. Come on Maddison's way better than Gallagher. Maddison's gone a bit off the boil after looking like adapting to this level rapidly but his ability is obvious. I do think he'll crack it in this league and eventually be an England player.

    I'm uneasy with us prioritising winning the league at this level if that was the case. It's obviously not a bad thing to win the league but it should always be secondary to the development of our players.

    Tielemans

    I thought he looked very good at Spurs but my god we aren't half setting ourselves up for a fall here.

    ****ing Salzburg as well Christ I've had a laughable week after a quite good one last time out.

    Obviously this is the night Villarreal turn up.

    Reckon Sporting are a good price here. 13/8 at home to a Villarreal side having a shocker of a season. Doubled them with Salzburg to win in Brugge. 5/4. Salzburg are quality.

    Herrera's just 'meh' to me. I think he looks alright but you've kind of answered how I feel about him in the comment about Pogba. Young still starting for them is embarrassing really. I do think Pogba's a good player but he needs to actually produce a bit more at the very top to be put in that category I feel. He showed a lovely bit of skill the other night early doors and I wondered if he was about to really grab that game by the scruff of its neck but he seemed to just vanish. Chelsea fan I know said he'd happily see them drop £100mil to sign both of them.

    Championship 2018-2019

    Bristol City are the outside bet for 2nd at this rate. Problem with them is they're the streakiest team going. They're either on an amazing run or a dreadful one.

    UEFA Champions League 2018/19

    They're clearly above average although at the same time they are clearly some way off the top sides. They could've lost by more than they did. There are still a lot of players in their side that aren't good enough for a supposed top side. The entire defence really, Matic, Herrera, Lukaku etc... aren't good enough. Pogba is clearly good but hasn't ever done anything to put himself in that top bracket for me personally. Whole host of midfielders that can lay a claim to being better.

    UEFA Champions League 2018/19

    To be honest if they actually won the Champions League for example I'd respect them a lot more. So far they've regularly pissed Ligue 1 but in this Qatari era literally haven't gone further in Europe than Leicester. They've been flat-track bullies.

    Man Utd have been beating teams left right and centre in the Premier League under Solskjaer. First test against a European side (missing some key players) they're frankly outclassed.
  21. There's too big an assumption here that a replacement manager would come in and stop all of the building for the future and be reckless with money. These things should be coming from above the manager, from Rudkin and Whelan etc... and they should make appointments that suit such an idea. Puel does but the results and football have both been questionable in the process. For me it's about whether they can find a manager who ticks Puel's positive boxes with others on top. The Tottenham performance was certainly encouraging but I'm not totally sold on it. I seem to remember us chucking in a good attacking display at Wembley last year too (although combined with some absolutely atrocious defending) and the same problems that were evident then are here now. I've no doubt at all it was a good performance where finishing let us down above all but it was one game, and one that we've seen similar to before. You can't get carried away. If we beat Palace with a similar type of performance, I will sit up and listen. Until then I'm not getting too carried away. Granted, Tielemans may well just be that joker in the pack.

    I've got a mate who is a Birmingham fan who was adamant they would hammer Bolton and said go for -1. I hate -1 and I'm not exaggerating when I say that I think 75% of the time I've put that on, the team I've backed have gone 0-1 down so they need three goals. It's a crap market to be honest. Hull was ridiculous. Unreal that they blew a 2-0 lead at home to Rotherham. Porto was a long shot that backfired. Man Utd frankly I fell right into the trap.

    The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

    I think it's easy to forget as well that with the top six obsession, our record against them is magnified even more as they will generally only watch the best of us rather than the worst. Anyone who was watching the Southampton, Cardiff, Palace, Fulham etc... games will get it but there will be far more who watched us against Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool and Man City.
