Tottenham restricted to just two shots on target all game.  Second place more or less secured in the league and just one win away from winning a 3rd trophy in two seasons for Mourinhos Manchester United.

Pogba was doing a bit of daydreaming on that Tottenham goal.

Good comeback by the Baggies when 2 -0 down with 12 minutes to play. That's the 3rd time this season that West Brom have got a result against Liverpool.

Wenger to quit at the end of the season.
Some Arsenal supporters won't truly appreciate how good Wenger was until he's gone.

Less than 4 weeks now, salivating at the prospect of who's going to finish runners up..
Time to let the other 10 play for the Leinster Intermediate Championship and a big shiny cup. Winners play Dublin in the Senior Final..
Sadly.....

You probably should expand that to an All-Ireland Intermediate. Winners play Dublin in the Senior Final. Because you are all just as shit as the rest of Leinster, we don't pretend any different.

The facts don't back that up though:

2017 Quarter Finalists:
Connacht x 3
Ulster x 3
Leinster x 1
Munster x 1

2016 Quarter Finalists:
Connacht x 2
Ulster x 2
Leinster x 1
Munster x 3

2015 Quarter Finalists:
Connacht x 1
Ulster x 4
Leinster x 2
Munster x 1

So over the past 3 years, you're looking at:

2017 Quarter Finalists:
Connacht x 6
Ulster x 9
Leinster x 4
Munster x 5

Even looking at the league standings for next year:
Connacht: 3 x D1, 1 x D3 & 2 x D4
Ulster: 3 x D1, 3 x D2, 1 x D3 & 1 x D4
Leinster: 1 x D1, 2 x D2, 6 x D3 & 2 x D4
Munster: 1 x D1, 3 x D2 & 2 x D4
Yes the good old Leinster football championship with the strongest team in Ireland in the weakest province.

Great longevity Big Tom had he was still producing decent tunes in his late 70s and unlike most Irish country music singers he didn't use a fake American accent when singing. RIP.

Are Liverpool really any nearer to winning the league than United? United are criticised by nearly every pundit yet if they win their game in hand they'll be 4 points clear of Liverpool. Their squad has very little depth and will likely loose Can this summer to make matters worse. If any of the front 3 got injured they'd be in big trouble. They probably need 4 or 5 quality players to win a title and not convinced they'll get them this summer. Win the CL and Klopp will get a free ride for a few years though and probably deservedly so.

Only time will tell but I do think there's a lot more to come from United. We've tended to have some very good halfs of football this season against the top teams in the league which is an improvement on last season. I think we've got huge issues at fullback, they've both got slower as the season has gone on; Replace them and we'll see a difference. We need a centre half and a centre mid too, ideally we need a right sided attacking player but don't see one coming in unless Martial is sold.


With the greatest respect though Liverpool have not won the league in almost 30 years and are operating off a much lower budget. They haven't spent near the money United have. To be no closer to winning the league than them must be classed as a failure. I don't mean any disrespect to Liverpool in that by the way....and they may indeed win a league before United do. Especially if there's no managerial changes in wither club.

Any names of players who'd improve United?

Neither did Leicester...

Utd (Jose) needs to assess his best team and get everyone fit, the season has been a disaster and will be compounded even further, next week against Spurs.. the 30 minutes I watched at the weekend was dreadful, not unlike a lot of games this season. Its got that bad now my dad doesnt bother to watch them live, prefering match of the day, he's been watching them since the mid 50's and its been too many poor games that have slipped away, negitive play also! He prefers the highlights (limited) rather the whole game..

There is a league winning team there, maybe MS is right but I can't see Klopp coming to Utd TBH and he's about the best out there along with Pep
A timely reminder where Manchester United have come from.

2013/14 7th
2014/15 4th
2015/16 5th
2016/17 6th

Manchester United currently second in the table with a game in hand and with five games to play already have more points secured than any of the last 4 seasons. If they improve further next season they should challenge for the title.

I was hoping for the second season Improvement that good managers generally bring, albeit City have blown everyone away they have underperformed to an extent and Bristol city and Sevilla have put Utd out of 2 cup competitions. Will all be forgiven should Utd win the FA Cup and stay second?
Second season has brought improvement even though that isn't enough for some supporters. Think of Arsenal right now who won't be finishing in the top 4 and need to win the Europa league to reach next seasons Champions league, that's where Manchester United were this time last season.

A FA Cup win would make up for the cup upset against Bristol City. Losing to Sevilla was a season low point however Bayern Munich would have knocked them out in the next round anyway.

City 4/6 next season, Liverpool 5/1 and Utd at 6/1 Both Spurs and Chelsea are 12/1
What are the odds on Wenger out chants for next season?

A real WTF moment when I seen him on RTE this evening, he doesn't half love the publicity! why wasn't he displaying Tottenham or Celtic memorabilia instead?

Anyway he was past his sell by date on here and hasn't been missed either.

Freedom of speech?
Didn't see what he got banned for maybe Ziggy finally had enough? no most should know you haven't the freedom to say whatever you like on these message board forums.

Sean Dyche has done the best job of all in my opinion.
Agreed and the job Claudio Ranieri did with Leicester City in 2015/16 will probably never be matched in the Premier league.

West Brom might have stayed up if they got rid of Alan Pardew earlier. A poor Premier league season where the best was too good for the rest and where the league title and top four places wrapped up by mid April. Sky and BT sports left to hype up the relegation battle with 5 games to play now.

Last week Manchester United beat the best team in the league away and today getting beaten at home by the worst team in the league. That lack of consistency must be very frustrating for any Manchester United supporter.
