I'd love to see Chelsea appoint a Dennis Wise/Vinnie Jones coaching ticket.

Authenticity is everything.

Think you have bigger problems Sid, Klopp looks to be the next useless manager in this thread.

Iíve no love for Chelsea, but even I wouldnít wish that on them! A hateful wee p***k, on and off the pitch.

Donít understand the timing of it more than anything. Why not do it immediately after the defeat at Leicester on Tuesday instead of keeping him on to manage in the cup?

Simply they didn't want to miss out on Tuchel. If PSG hadn't sacked him then I doubt they would've, but in order to secure him for next year they moved now.

Cut throat from Chelsea. They don't mess around.

Tuchel is the next in. They actually aren't all that far behind....new manager bounce....they couldn't, could they?

Roman Abramovich remains ruthless. With all the money that was spent on signings last summer on top of already strong squad it was clear he expected a title challenge at least this season. Instead Lampard who couldn't handle the pressure to succeed has left Chelsea 9th and 11 points off the top.

Tuchel a big upgrade on Lampard however if he doesn't reach the expectations of Mr Abramovich he won't last more than two seasons either.

Wouldn't expect Tuchel to last more than a season.

I think back to all the claims that Tyrone wouldn't be able to keep their run going when they arrived on the scene due to the high intensity that they played with, is the same possibly going to happen with Liverpool?  Is there a pattern emerging with Klopp sides?  Took a few years to get Dortmund to the top but then they started to tumble.

They have been playing at a very high level now for 3 years so it was kind to catch up. Iíd say Son and Kane canít wait to get a go at that defence.

Its a season quite literally like no other. Very little pre season or rest. One season merged into another. It's been trial and error.

Liverpools game stripped back...is based on intensity, it's hard to ask that every 3 days really. They've had injuries but that's what I meant a few pages ago when there was calls for Pep to be sacked, Lampard.....Mourinho went through a month without a win. It's a strange, strange season. You have to forgive clubs for not cracking the code when it's been thrust on them but it has led to the most interesting midway point we could imagine.

Lampard obviously was learning on the job but outside factors are massive. Is Klopp only a 5 point manager better than Lampard? Absolutely not, but that's the way the table sits right now. They are all getting it tough, the league winner this year will possibly be the record lowest points.

It's very difficult to keep that level of intensity up with the same players. City crashed last year and Liverpool were a year behind them when you think about it. I listened to a guy at the start of the season talking about it, he had some other reasons for it but I'd take that with a pinch of salt. Ferguson's best teams needed to be changed after 3 or 4 years. He did that pretty ruthlessly in his time, Klopp doesn't seem like that and Liverpool don't seem to be pushing another big spend to change things up.

It's like the hurling. Hard to maintain the intensity for the 2 in a row. Liverpool should win it handy next year.

Delighted for Moyes as it goes. It didn't work for him at United but think he copped a lot of unnecessary flak in the years after it. He did a good job at Everton over a prolonged period...
