The club five years on are still paying the cost of not bringing in a like for like replacement for Ferguson straight away.
Taggart?
I said like for like and not lookalike.

Someone like Laurent Blanc until the end of the season to steady the ship might work given that Zidane looks unlikely now at this stage. There is still a CL and FA cup to play for, top 4 is now very unlikely and whoever takes the job will not be under any major pressure as long as they play attacking football and give the fans a bit of excitement. Then go for Pocchetino in the summer

From what I can recall Blanc's teams aren't great to watch. As for Zidane don't want him anywhere near the club.

Why so?


I'm intrigued too....from someone who advocated for and tolerated that sc**bag Mourinho I'd love to know what's so offputting about Zidane.

Just think he'll be out of his depth, he did a brilliant job for Real Madrid but knew the club inside out and inherited a brilliant set of players; Comfortably the best starting 11 in Europe.

I'm desperately hoping a director of football comes in now, that allows you to replace managers regularly without as much disruption.

If that is the case then why are they so average in the La-Liga this season?

It's the Christmas present José wanted.

A big f**k-off payout.

That's all he was interested in.

Its also why he wanted the Manchester United job for a long time, where else can you get so well paid while get such a big pay out if sacked? The club five years on are still paying the cost of not bringing in a like for like replacement for Ferguson straight away. The appointment of Moyes shook the foundations and it will take them another few years to fully recover from that.

Armagh 6-17 St Mary's 1-07 FT
You’d have to say Armagh won’t be far away in summer 2019.
Won't be far away from Down?

More and more it looks like Rui Faria was the man that made Jose Mourinho teams hard to score against and hard to beat. If he's sacked now he will get a nice 20 million pay off and a happy Christmas back in London. No wonder he's smiles so often in those after match interviews.

Klopp's first League win against Manchester United and Liverpool's first league win against Manchester United since 2014 when David Moyes was manager? 36 attempts on goal must be some type of record in this game?

Dire stuff! Both teams would get dumped out of the next round of CL if they play like that
Compared to some of the recent Liverpool v Manchester United games it is a decent watch. Liverpool will reach the latter stages of the Champions league while Manchester United will likely be dumped out in the next round.

Non league type defending for the Liverpool goal and pub league goalkeeping on the Manchester United goal.

What is this 6 in a row?
I reckon that he’s on about the Kerry minors and is out by a year.
Alternatively, kids😳

Kerry didn't win it in 2013 and they won 4 in a row U18 All Ireland titles and one in a row at u17.

Good weekend all things considered. Massive week coming up now.

When you look back at the games so far its incredible that Liverpool are top given that they have not played particularly well in a  lot of games and had a few massive slices of luck (the derby, City penalty etc). Despite the desperation of some United fans to have Liverpool seen as favourites or "Champions Elect"  , (presumably so they can gloat on here when their rivals from across the city win it ::)::) )  I do not think I have spoken to one Liverpool fan who would have Liverpool as anything other than an outside chance. Liverpool have just got over the line in a few games while City, bar the match on Saturday have pretty much cruised through the first half of the season without their best player. Its a sign of how good the results have been that Spurs, despite their best ever start are six points back however I would not rule them out of mounting a challenge. You look at Liverpool's fixtures from now to the City game and you could see Spurs closing the gap by then.

United will be a real test this Sunday as despite how poorly they  have been for big parts of this year, Mourinho always does well at Liverpool and he knows how to set teams up when he is the underdog. Unfortunately if United were really 6/1 I think that is a great bet.

Here’s the reality though

1-1 with 5 mins left, 3-3 on aggregate. No away goals, has to end tonight.

Looking like penalties. Be interesting to know how many supporters travelled from Argentina for this game.

One of the best things about the GAA is the underdog winning. Take note HQ. Congrats  St Cloumbas will be some party in Longford tonight.
