ronaldo, that son of a bitch. he’s really great though.

man, speaking of bravado, i am sure missing the hell out of this sport in spite of my outward stoicism.

“hopefully” (as they say) i’ll be all set for the world cup.

I've not heard anything about PSG so I assume all's well. I really don't want him to win a ballon d'or though.

I'm pretty much wrapped up in the prem this season. West Ham are in too precarious a position to concentrate on much else. For the neutral though, it's been worth watching just to see MC evolve into something pretty brilliant. We all agree Pep has his faults but when he gets it right it's a thing to behold. Debruyne and Silva are playing some next-level football right now.

Meanwhile what about old Everton, now sitting comfortably in mid table. Whatever I might think about Allardyce I can see him getting the best out of Rooney, who I can see being locked quite lucratively into Allardyce's trademark Kevin Nolan role. And Calvert Lewin seems ideal for whenever Sam goes long.

West Ham are starting to beef up under Moyes , the one thing I haven't been able to say about them for years, even during the Allardyce years. But I'm really wary of reading too much into the MC and Chelsea performances. That was back to the wall stuff, totally focused on defence. I'll have to wait and see how we do against teams that we'll be expected to chase. The match against Stoke will say more about where WH really are in terms of progress. But if the game against MC gave me a hint of optimism, the Chelsea win has given me a little bit of confidence.

Agreed with the Ballo d'or and wanting to keep it just at 5 each. Besides, already we can see neither of them are having vintage years and that there are more consistent players out there. Honestly, as much as I hate the idea, if PSG win the champions league and Neymar gets to the final with Brazil then they'll give it him. *through gritted teeth* "it's a damn popularity contest with you kids"

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW!!

Juventus v Tottenham
Basel v Manchester City
Porto v Liverpool
Sevilla v Manchester United
Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain
Shakhtar Donetsk v Roma
Chelsea v Barcelona
Bayern Munich v Besiktas

What a draw that is. Some potentially great games there!

I'm getting to the point where I'm gutted if I miss either a live game or MOTD when Man City play.

I feel like I could bang on and on about how great it is to watch them play. I know symbols has some weird desire to see him fail, but what he's done for that team is something else. Honestly, in football terms he's an absolute genius. Whilst we've seen what he did for Barcelona and (to a lesser extent) Bayern, this just confirms what we already knew the.

ha ha ha, come on, no. it’s not like that... exactly

when it works, pep can make teams levitate off the ground and it’s a wonder to witness.

i’ll never forget the 7-0 they inflicted upon roma in the champions. it was pure wizardry.

i don’t know what he’s doing these days, but in bayern he was too much the idealist. he forced players out of position and sometimes it was great but sometimes it was terrible.

his use of neuer as the ultimate sweeper keeper was genius.

that genius was used to cover a vulnerable defense. a vulnerability in part created by his insistence in moving lahm to the midfield.

so bayern fell to fast counters once and again and again and he did nothing to make up for that except double down on his gamble and fail worse and get punked repeatedly.

not in the bundesliga where winning had become trivial at that point, given the collapse of dortmund and the pilfering of wolfsburg (they had the great debruyne and he was taken and the team collapsed) . but in the champions where it mattered most.

bayern was supposed to rule the champions and oooops! no. his soft underbelly was exposed and cut open.

i don’t know what he’s doing in the prem except for your reports, and i don’t know if he’s learned from past mistakes and evolved something else, so i can’t say i wish him ill.

i don’t have a problem with the guy or his ideals—only with the hubris and tyranny that come with it. he’s great, until he isn’t. do i make sense or am i just rambling incoherently? please tell me ha ha ha.

I completely agree. I get the same excitement watching MC this season that I got seeing Barcelona at their peak. I had my doubts about Pep last season but I was wrong. What he's done to players like De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Sane, Stones, etc, is nothing short of miraculous.

Ah man, real glad he's made the turn around you needed. Liked Arnautovic's baiting of Stoke yesterday too.

Yeah, so far I couldn't ask for more! He seems to have brought the best out of Arnie and actually given us a bit of grit - something WH have never been associated with, even during their better periods.

How are you finding Big Sam?

Haha! Messi can't even look him in the eye he's that enamoured with him.

Aye, Big Sam is doing what he does, isn't he? Thing is, like at West Ham it'll be the same situation. Nice lovely relationship, then as time goes on the dull games begin to grate etc. etc.
It'll be interesting to see what the board decide after the season is over.

In other news, all is forgotten from Liverpool's two drab draws where they couldn't break down defences. Now Klopp is a genius again and the team are world beaters. It's actually incredible how short peoples memories are.

In a way you'd be better off him keeping you safe but no more, in case the board are tempted to extend his contract. He'll hopefully do a job for you but you don't wanna see him start to build a team in his image.

As for Liverpool, yeah. They're obviously great going forward but that defence will always let them down in the big games.

Anyway, Everton Swansea in a minute. You should get past them.

I don't see anyone making outrageous claims about Pep. Right now he has MC playing really well. Of course injuries to key players would have an impact and of course no success is indefinite. And we know that sometimes his eccentricities can back-fire. I disagree about there being some kind of pattern to him being found out, though, or any kind of inevitability to it. It's not like his ideas are a secret. His overall record, though, shows that knowing what he does and stopping it are usually two different things. Sure, weaker teams can park the proverbial bus and hope for the best, and sometimes it'll work, or they might simply face a better team, with better individual players. But isn't that just how the game works? Right now he probably has the best crop of players in the Prem but maybe not when you look at the top end of Europe, where they may still come unstuck. We'll have to see. In the meantime, just enjoy them for what they're doing.
