I love this comment on the BBC website: "If Southampton are to compete for a Champions League place then they really need to be beating these mid table sides."

I wonder how long it'll be until a big club snaps Januzaj up?

Our connection dropped at least twice last night and froze a few times, don’t have fibre yet with approx 13mb speeds. Anyone else get similar problems?

I’ve had no problems over any of the nights. 

Me neither, but I get 60+mb so that probably helps.

Scarily City have dominated Leicester in this first half and deservedly go in 2-1 ahead. Leicester still carry the Vardy threat though and City won't be able to rest until they get a 3rd or 4th. Even though it's Leicester they look capable of getting that many.

It's nice to see Bernardo Silva playing through the middle as well. He is wasted out wide in my opinion.

Even after us getting Ancelotti I’m still reading things about how Moyes would’ve been a better option for us! I mean, really?! A man that is a proven winner isn’t as good an option as a proven bottler? I’d rather die wondering with Ancelotti than get the guaranteed shite from Moyes.

He is the new Allardyce.  18 month deal so he gets an extra years pay but he’s only there till summer.  Not as caustic or negative as Allardyce, he’s the relegation specialist people can actually stomach.  How far he has fallen.

Interesting read.  Not, uh, complimentary toward Moyes.

But not toward Everton, either: a “storied mid-sized club” with “an unbridgeable gulf between expectation and reality, where the interests of the fanbase — take some risks, play with romance, make us dream again — are at direct odds with the business plan, which demands mid-table Premier League football in perpetuity.”

Is that Everton under Moshiri??

West Ham, "..a club where nutty mavericks have always had the run of the place – from Di Canio to the Dildo Brothers – ..."

I watched 4 games yesterday started watching the 5th Arsenal and Utd but at just gone 2am decided enough was enough, but what I did see was Brighton Southampton and Norwich go out to win the game with some decent performances, then disappointingly we didn’t.

If Leeds had an actual striker instead of Bamford they could be a really nice side.  doing very well against Arsenal.  I love their energy and pressing, classic Biesla

I will never, ever, ever want Leeds to win so much as an egg-cup. Revie era has me hating them for life, I think anyone of my generation (their supporters excluded) will go along with that, desperately hope they screw promotion again but I fear they won't.

I have a soft spot for them ever since Yeboah. I love watching old videos of him scoring stunners. His goal against Wimbledon will always be one of my favorites.

Fair enough but those of my age had their opinion formed by the anti football of Revie, accompanied by his shameful (fortunately short) stint as England manager.

I'll admit that I have absolutely no clue who that is.

Dirty dirty Leeds, I hated that horrible little man Bremner what a poor excuse for a footballer he was just a thug with 0 ability.

Man United fans apparently chanting "death to Greenwood". Classy.

*Woodward.

He will never be removed from the club as financially they are growing year on year, he's employed to make the Glazers money and is doing exactly that. The results on the football pitch are very much a secondary concern to the income that Woodward and his team generate. 

Not that chants calling for his death should be acceptable mind, a little bit over the line to be honest regardless of how poor the team are playing.

yep looked up deloitte money league and even though they are shittier they made 50m more this year.  crazy.  at some point the results will drive the bus and the heritage will fall away (like it did with us).

Indeed. Their brand will become worthless if they don't start competing again and then the owners will sod off, with all the debt saddled on the club. But, so long as the name means something, they'll keep getting stupid money but more and more debt. Woodward should stick to the business and leave player deals to someone who has sense and cares.
