Don’t think Ole’s gunnar

be around for much longer.

On borrowed time and Utd definitely looking for a new manager.

It was like the Liverpool bus ran over all the Watford players who were not even in the same league. Five beautiful goals but the Salah goal was just sublime and one of the most brilliant I have ever seen. Four Watford players could not stop him. Falling to the floor like leaves in a storm. Salah was like a ballet dancer.

I wonder what Ronaldo is thinking about his decision to return to Utd

Dunno. He was gifted two goals in his first game back against Newcastle, which sent the hype machine into overdrive, and yesterday may be a better indication of his ability and contribution.

The thing Man U fans should be worried about is how easily Leicester got the last two goals. Vardy just moved off for a pullback and no-one went with him. The last one was a second ball off a corner where the defenders didn't move up to play offside. Both are pretty basic stuff.

Yes. Scoring goals hasn’t been the main problem. Maguire stunk and Wan-Bissaka is all over the place.

When you are playing with a 36-year-old Ronaldo and Pogba, you are playing with 9 men when you haven’t got the ball. Vardy is over 30 but is still getting in the way and closing people down. Leicester fully deserved that win.

Salah looks like he’s trying for all contenders for the goal of the season competition.

Norwich remain winless and bottom of the table after a 0-0 draw with Brighton.

Brighton are now 4th. Who would you have in charge of your side - Solskjaer or Potter?

Villa will be the death of me. Good god.

Just watched that. Great game for the neutral. Villa have been involved in some great games this season.

Maybe they should have stuck to the bus, and not flown the 100 miles to Leicester!

Jet lag?

2-0 to 2-3 in a local derby's gotta hurt. Wolves have been poor recently too.

And I would fly 100 miles,

And I would fly 100 more,

Just to be the team who lets in four goals and

Then fly back home again

Potter has done a fine job at Brighton, they play some good stuff. Schooled Liverpool twice last season. I fancy him in a big job at some point, probably Spurs when Nuno gets the boot.

Then again, I said the same about Chris Wilder.

It is a baptism by fire to the newly appointed Watford gaffer Claudio Ranieri. Wishing the Hornets all the very best in the challenges ahead.

I'd bet money he's thinking, "Why didn't they buy some wingers to provide crosses for me? Why did they sell Dan James to Leeds? Is Ole going to ask me and Mason to press from the front?" amongst other things.

Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, even Firmino is better than Ronaldo.
