    I hope Jiminez and the ball boy savoured their little bout of timewasting head tennis which added a couple of minutes on.

    Hahaha I was losing the plot at that stage.

    I could take the defeat to West Ham we didn’t play well they did and they’d plenty of chances you can take a defeat and move on.

    Not winning that game today after the chances we had and the time wasting and pricking around they did would have been much harder to take. 
    What a way to win when they’d added all that extra time on themselves.

    I don't think the plan was to sack him so soon, he's forced their hand by being spectacularly shit in his final few games in charge.

    Yep. Id say they thought after the international break a good win against Watford get back in contention for top 4 and the current expectations of the board will be met.

    Once they got thumped again it was panic stations. If they were being run properly first he wouldn't have got the job permanently and second he should have been sacked over the international break. 

    They are as badly run off the pitch as they are on it.


    Long may it continue.


  3. It’s amazing just how bad the Manchester have managed the club since fergie retired.

    the amount of money they’ve spent is off the charts - numerous managers each one funnier than the next. A couple of trophies nothing significant at all.

    They had an opportunity to sack Ole get a winner in with Conte delayed decided to stick with home come back after the international break where the other clubs have made a transition of a new manager during that time.

    now it looks like he’ll be sacked but they’ve literally no plan or identity anymore apart from having money to throw at players.

    Long may it continue.

    If Barcelona were a car they'd be trying to reverse out of motorway toll booths so they wouldn't have to pay the fee. 


    I'm not sure Mo and his advisors will have any interest in him paying his own wages. 

    Certainly FSG have tried hard to make this an option...doesnt seem to be working so far

    He's great, I could listen to him all day. In fact, I often do. I spent hours yesterday in a youtube rabbit hole alternating between the best of Keane and the best of Charles Barkley and Shaq on Inside the NBA.


    I watched an interview with Keane from when he was a player (the "don't pick on Gary Neville, pick on me" one) and it was bizarre how different his voice was then compared to now. Sounded like a completely different fella.

    I find the same when I've seen old clips of Carra as a young player he sounds a lot different

    "You can't hang your hat on Cavani. He loves a niggle".

    When he gets In full flow it seems nobody is off limits he has a pop off everyone - at one point he had a dig at us having "just the one league title in 30 years" in a typical sneery Keane response.

    I suppose the only value Richards offers is the fact he talks so much nonsense it gets Keane pissed off enough to start having a go at everyone.

    Klopp is pushing for it apparently. Say what you want about Hazard, but he hit nearly 20 goals a season for 5 years in the Premier League. Klopp would get 15 goals a season out of him. 

    We haven't even tied Salah down to an improved deal yet.

    Theres zero chance we sign Hazard on the money he'd be looking for.

    West Ham were deserving of their win yesterday. Players who are usually great were very poor. It happens. As others have said, the four points dropped against Brentford and Brighton are much more frustrating. 


    We're nowhere near the level we were at in 2019/20, but Manchester City and Chelsea have proven themselves capable of dropping points in 'easy' games also and same as ourselves they'll have the knock-out stages of Europe to contend with in the new year. 


    Still, I think we're far more likely to achieve in Europe than domestically this season if we keep our form there at the same level.  

    Certainly City seem to be dropping silly points - Chelsea have looked very strong and only Burnley at home is the only bad result so far for them and with Lukaku due back they are looking pretty strong.

    We're only 4 points off them with Salah and Mane available - the few games we have when they are away at the AFCON is a real concern now as our squad depth is piss poor after a brilliant first 11. I might be overly pessimsitc but its hard not to see that gap vs Chelsea increasing as with pretty much our full side available we've dropped really bad points against Brentford and Brighton.
