Just a few of the cuff thoughts

the bottom 4 teams look set donít they
gives everyone else the chance to play with a bit of freedom I suppose

Iím a Bielsa fan but the gushing can be a tad annoying
but wether you rate him/them or not they ainít going down

also good to see Des Kelly stand up to Klopp today

Diego for me was the greatest player in football history

I thought Des Kelly was excellent in making his point politely but firmly. He had Klopp on the back foot.
As for the bottom four I think Burnley will have enough to escape. Albion and Sheffield United don't look good enough to stay up. Fulham look shambolic.

My best mate from my days at Uni is a committed Blade, and I hope they can get themselves in gear.  If they lose tonight though, which they look like they will (and especially now I've just seen Baldock's miss), I fear for them.

More generally, it strikes me that Crystal Palace without Zaha would quite possibly be the worst team in the division, and I'm not sure how long he can continue to drag them up on his own.

They don't seem to have learned from watching Scotland matches... if you pick McBurnie to play centre-forward, you won't score.

He does indeed look pretty hopeless.

They are absolutely determined not to score. Another complete sitter goes into orbit.

Sheffield Unitedís finishing tonight is possibly the worst I have ever seen at this level. They are absolutely useless up top.

Looks like the Blades recently graduated from a week at the Trez Finishing School.

I do like the look of Gallagher, thought he'd come through their academy for some reason. Imagine my shock to find out that he's a Chelsea loanee 🙄

Savage & Sutton on 5Live slaughtering Jurgen Klopp. Klopp has been banging on about more substitutions being allowed to save muscle tiredness injuries. But the statistics show the vast majority of Klopp's substitutions aren't made until the period from eighty minutes onwards which is an exercise in running down the clock rather than protecting players from injury. Klopp makes a large number of substitutions in injury time at which point it makes next to no difference when a player has already played as near as dammit the whole game.

He says he only does that because he wants to keep subs spare in case one of his players gets injured which he says is more likely this season with no pre-season and less recovery time between games.
