United look like they are playing with no one in midfield. It’s almost a 4-0-2 formation.

Foden should leave City, no way he is a regular for another 3 years at this rate. Meanwhile, Sancho is ripping it up for club and country.

If the lad is from Liverpool with a surname Jones then a very good chance he has. :thumbup: :thumbup:


Just checked. Jones has represented England at U16, U17, U18 and U19 level. Certain Welsh.


So the two young players that stood out in Liverpool's win over Everton apparently were Curtis Jones who sounds Welsh but isn't and Neco Williams who is and plays right back. Another good young un, alongside Harry Wilson, Ethan Ampadu, David Brooks, Rabbi Matondo and Daniel James.

Lots of people bitching about VAR ruining last second goals from the game last night. FFS it was scored by a blatant handball the officials missed, that's exactly when VAR is doing a great job. People are acting like people were perfectly happy prior to VAR, as if fans didn't rage when a key decision that costs their team a game is missed.

Spurs played well and Mourinho nailed his tactics in that game.

He's not to blame for Son and Lamela missing 2 absolute sitters. Just look like a team who needs refreshing in midfield and need to be more cohesive in attack which won't start properly until the end of the season.

Bloody United next week just when they start to look like a proper team and have some confidence.

Ah well, it’s been a nice run.

It's pretty handy for a small country like Wales being so close to England, you're getting a good supply of players from England whereas other small nations probably don't get the same opportunity. These players though not the top quality will get Wales into the occasional tournament. Pretty handy

Just saw this comment on the BBC

This Liverpool love in misses the fact that this Utd team are without their best attacking threat (Rashford), their best creative midfielder (Pogba) and their best defensive midfielder (McTominay) and are still in it. Utd will catch Liverpool next season, their star is already waning.

Alan, Seaton


I'm not a Liverpool fan but they haven't even done anything yet and this is one game. They've dropped two points all season. If that's "already waning" then I hope Arsenal are that "waning" next season.

United are ways off but that's team should get several new faces and they may be able to compete in a couple of years.

What Liverpool have done far better than anyone else if nail their signings. Every single one has effectively been a contributor while United signed old, dross shite. That has to change or it'll be another 7 years of misery.

Playing Maguire with a possible hip tear through the pain and now Rashford out...

The desperation to get players in is palpable at United yet they sign no one.

To be honest, United aren't a million miles off competing for the league again. Just need a new coach, new owners, a new CEO and pretty much a whole new squad and we'll be chasing title number 21.

Massive 3 points for Bournemouth.

We've been an utter shambles... lost 11 of last 13 in the league going into tonight.

Thank god. A home match also against Villa next. Please, please let us win that one to get away from the relegation zone.

Newcastle scoring 2 goals in injury time to draw 2-2 is the real big story of the night.

Ugh, Chelsea. Kante's still a liability over the halfway line and wastes so much possession. That slip was incredibly costly, too. Willian's too profligate for a guy who has to provide some stability in attack with two talented but inconsistent guys like Abraham and Hudson-Odoi.

Kovacic was anonymous too.

Arsenal looked a lot more organised once Luiz was sent off.
