I can't see you guys being in any real danger of relegation, but Bruce is certainly on one of those runs of his (that we all remember) which make a fan question whether anybody could do any worse.
I dunno, we could survive, but that's a low bar to clear. And he's not exactly in shape.

I could do better, you could do better, it's only really John Carver who couldn't do better.

Paul Lambert would have a good try.


Paul f*cking Lambert. The Scottish version of Graham Turner.

What? Turner was much better

A howler from Pickford in the Everton goal. Cue the camera cutting to a shot of Southgate in the stand.

So. And you may need to bare with me on this. Fernandes is fouled but the ref plays advantage and the game moves on a couple of yards only with Pogba then having a shot which goes over. Ref then goes back for the free kick, from which ManU get a corner and subsequently score.
My question - how for does advantage continue ? As I understand it, in Rugby Union it continues until the team that has it chooses to kick it away. Surely being able to engineer a shot on goal should be the equivalent and see advantage over ? Otherwise itís a free shot knowing you have another shot from a not dissimilar distance to the first one which doesnít go in, but this time with no one within 10 yards.

How has Mike Dean from the wirral allowed to ref Everton at home? Vs Leicester

Because itís a well known fact heís an avid Tranmere Rovers supporter and has no affinity with Everton.

Kinda answered your own question there. We had one tonight which we didn't make the most of, and it wasn't brought back.

United loosing makes my day after all.

If Sheffield United hang on, it'll be consecutive wins against this opponent, bringing up their third win over manyoo in 11 PL games as opposed to our similar record from 51 games.

That was on my mind tbh. But in a world where Ollie can be offside by lines randomly drawn 50 miles from the stadium it feels a bit too arbitrary.

Guidance to referees used to suggest that play could be pulled back up to 30 seconds after an infringement where advantage was played. I'm not sure whether has changed though.

Gutsy win by the Blades .Ryan Brewster makes Keinan Davis look like Van Basten.
Feel sorry for Axel, shit deflection off him.

Doubly so as it has allowed Manu arseholes to do this.

I am not too fussed about them finishing bottom. Anywhere in the bottom three will do for me. I can't see any other club finishing below the current bottom three of Sheffield United, Albion and Fulham. Although Newcastle are doing their best to join in.
