Wouldn’t be so sure I would say:
Conte
Koeman
Zidane
Arteta
OGS (hopefully)
Are all very precarious

Poch shouldn’t jump too soon he could have his pick of club

According to the quotes from Poch detailed in Brave New World, he would never consider replacing Koeman or Arteta.

I'd say Zidane is fairly safe after avoiding being knocked out and still on for the league.
Koeman will probably be fired soon but Poch is an Espanyol man so don't see it.
Is Tuchel safe?

Koeman will be in a job until the 22nd Jan with the Presidential elections finished he'll be replaced (by Xavi possibly).

No way Xavi is going to come in as coach before the sticky Messi issue is resolved. He'll be patient, let the thing blow up and then make his move as rebuilding hero, pref with Busi having already retired or gone abroad for a payday.

How sad. I always admired his style as a manager. I thought he had a lot of integrity and honesty as borne out by many of the tributes hitting the news. RIP sir.

Tenuous footy link, but I just came across a pic of David Seaman's daughter, Georgina.

If you're into huge knockers like I am, you are in for a treat.

Bergwijn scores that one-on-one and he's a genius. But a team playing that way and losing is a team that gets what it deserves.

You'll see when we lose to Leeds tomorrow.

United play with no control. They're either excellent or putrid. There is no in between

Despite the big winning margin if Bamford had his finishing boots on or De Gea hadnt made a few great saves Leeds could have drawn or won that game tbf.
