    Cracking game this. Think the fact Liverpool threw it away backs up my point that they don't have the solidity to play so openly. Rodgers needs to be more pragmatic.

    Brumby's tip of him being out by season end still looking good value.
    I think they'll stick with him into next season, they've been about as poor as they're likely to get already this season and there's still little to no anti-Rodgers backlash from the fans.

    Agreed about Gary Neville, who I always thought was OK. Possibly our best right-back since I started watching the game. I'm less sure about Neal, whose being skinned by Graziani of all people in the 1980 Euros was only one of a series of cock-ups that he contributed at vital times. I thought Anderson was better. Ditto Mick Mills, who I think eventually replaced Neal at the 1982 WC having played for years as a right-footed left back.

    It's one of those weird things that we've had a string of mediocre right-backs (as above plus Gary Stevens, Danny Mills et al) mostly at the same time as far superior left-backs. And yet we have barely produced a decent left-sided midfielder worthy of the name.

    As things stand, yes. But if Saurez gets a long-term injury the goals will completely dry up and results will only go one way. In those circumstances, Rodgers could find himself under more pressure than we've seen so far. Especially if Andy Carroll ever manages to find the net for his current employers.

    Would definitely wait til February and see if they've had any big injuries before putting money on them, though. Odds won't change much so might as well.
    Can't believe Dortmund only paid 17m for Reus. He was outstanding for Monchengladbach last season.

    Steve Nicol and Wes Brown probably better.
    Not knocking either player per se, but neither's the footballer in skill terms of the chaps I mentioned.

    wpd's point about Comrade Gary is a good one; circa Euro 96 he really did look like the was the kind of defensively solid, overlapping runner we'd been looking for in an RB for so long. I don't know what happened after that, but the attacking side of his game largely disappeared afterwards.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Hartson reckons O'Neill should be the United manager after Ferguson, must say couldn't agree more

    Oh dear, 9th goal conceded in the first 15 minutes after half time. Fergie's team talks not working?

    Could kiss Pothas right now.

    Minimum 3 point lead tonight would see me sleeping soundly. That and the bottle of rum on the side in the kitchen.
