    I feel like if they had Pochettino in mind for if/when they have to pull the trigger on Solskjaer they'd have just done it by now, but it probably doesn't matter as long as Woodward is in charge of the football side.
    Pochettino apparently has a non-compete type clause from his Tottenham sacking which means he can't take a job til the summer.

    That's real bravery. Don't give me this Great Ormond Street bollocks.

    Jim, what do you know about Samatta? Any good in the air? We've not scored a headed goal all season Can he hold the ball up? Feel that would bring us on a lot.

    From what I remember he was an off the shoulder type. More Gabby than Benteke. It's been a while though so he has probably broadened out his game.

    Lazaro has his medical booked. Looks like he might cover at left-back, seeing as Willems and Dummett are out for the season. Loan with Ł20m option to buy.

    Mané off injured is a bit of a concern, but given I think it's about 3/4 weeks now with 1 league game then it's the right thing to be cautious.

    Interesting that Klopp chose to bring on Minamino as opposed to the more obvious Origi.

    That's a cracking goal. This has been a belting game so far.

    Salah has to do better with all these chances he's getting (hogging).

    Salah in this form is as bad as a man down.

    Wolves are the most frustrating team to play against. All of their players are brilliant at shielding the ball. Such a gritty team.

    Thanks.

    Checking Liverpool's fixtures they've City away and if you're stretching it Everton and Arsenal away which you look at and think might be difficult.

    Whenever I see Wolves play (which is admittedly not that often) I marvel at how they don't seem to be doing better in the league. They always seem really good, then you see them chuck in defeats against shit like Watford (or United in the cup) and millions of crappy draws. Jimenez and Traore are top quality. The latter is a bit of a revelation from his early days in England.

    They are the archetypal 'game raising twats', which I believe is a TTHism; although I'm not sure who coined it.

    That Neto bloke looks like he could be a right player as well. They could do with signing a few more ‘quality’ players as they don’t rotate much and will have played a ridiculous amount of games with their EL run. Decent value on them winning that.

    They’re always going to be more suited to playing teams who are more likely to open up. Traore for example isn’t going to be doing much if they’re playing against a team sitting in.

    Game raising wankers.

    I think the idea which seems to be emanating from aspects of the BBC live text that they were the better side tonight are a bit off. Liverpool still had more and better chances, and controlled large parts of the game.

    Liverpool have managed to time their rise to prominence when every major team are going through an average or transitional period. All the major European teams are changing the guard and the so called top 6 in the Prem are either turbo-shit or can't sign defenders so turned into a beatable force (City). Liverpool could dominate for a few years left while the rest sort themselves out.

    If Salah could pass every once in a while then the game would have been put to bed earlier, I imagine.

    Shrewsbury in the cup means we'll rest a fair few before West Ham, after that it's Southampton at home then the break comes in doesn't it? One or two look a bit tired.

    Robertson looks fucked. Should probably tell him to take a month off.

    You can rest the entire team for the rest of the season, the league's done.

    Mike Dean's boys to put the final nail in Ole's coffin?

    He'd better be in the stands for that one.

    Feel like anytime there's a public "aw jeeze he's still got the backing of the board" story in the news the manager is usually gone within two weeks, so.

    I'm surprised that the 5th best team of last season is struggling without their top scorer (this year and last) and their best centre midfielders (3x). We definitely shouldn't sign anyone.

    I read the other day that United are extending Bailly's contract for another two years. I get the 'business logic' of it, but doesn't it fall down when he still doesn't actually have a value as an asset as, with a new contract at United, no one is going to stump up a fee for him or get near to the wages he probably gets? So you just end up paying him to play (or not play) for another two years. There's so many players in that squad that need to have the losses cut on, and then you see some complete mook like Marcos Rojo has signed a new 3 year deal at the same wage as Sadio Mané.

    I bet Phil Jones has got a renewal either recently or in the pipeline.

    What are they going to do with Henderson? Is anyone going to buy De Gea now he's on that mental contract (and is a bit shit)?

    Jones had a 4 year deal last year taking him to a cool Ł6m per year. It's absolutely insane- the asset is worthless as you say as no one can match the wages (and they have no interest to move).

    I hope we play Henderson next year but again, DDG is on mega money so we'll end up losing him.
