    The ‘highlights’ of the United game reminded me of that clip of Andy Gray and Richard Keys pissing themselves at a particularly sloppy Women’s FA Cup final.

    I only half watched after work while watching the Adelaide test on the laptop. I’m ambivalent to our ****** play. I just don’t expect entertainment. Jose is gone once 4th is out of reach so he’s probably around till March. At some point we might be randomly good before then.

    The BBC have an article ominously titled "Manchester United: Have fans reluctantly accepted their team's 'B-List' status?" It'd be sad if that was the case, but given that the fans seem to continue to applaud United at the end of games and whatever, there does seem to be an element of it being true. It doesn't exactly feel like the sort of fan campaign to get the manager out a la Wenger.

    I’m told atmosphere at games is pretty toxic lately. Bit of a split between those who think you should always back the team and those who think things will only get worse unless they demand change. Also supposedly a lot more sympathy for Mourinho among match-goers than us armchair fans.

    Speaking very generally, the fans at northern clubs don’t turn on the players anywhere near as quickly or as viciously as they do at London clubs.

    Tbh I feel like people massively overestimate how angsty Arsenal's home fans were. Worst you got were HT/FT boos and people not turning up to games. It was the away fans who were the type to go on Arsenal Fan TV etc.

    But yeah the match last night was dreadful. Other than those two chances Kolasinac created in one minute, I can't recall a decent chance that wasn't made by a ridiculous error or just horrendous defending. In Arsenal's defence, they looked a bit knackered (for the first time under Emery it has to be said) after Sunday and they really lacked on ball quality in the XI with Özil and Xhaka out.

    You're only getting applause at the end of the game because 80% of the fans left 10 minutes earlier

    The standard of punditry is just shocking in general.

    The amount of hoops being jumped through on BT on Tuesday to gloss over big club v small club routine win number 47 of the season and paint it as evidence of how competitive the league is was laughable.

    The standard on anything apart from Sky is particularly bad. That's not to say all of Sky's pundits are great, they aren't, but I can't think of a single non-Sky pundit (i.e. one from BBC or BT) I would take over a Sky one.

    (not including the ****s on Soccer Saturday. They don't count. ****ing Merson. Would like to run him over and then back over him)

    On the plus side, I do like Gary Neville's emphasis on tactics and positioning.

    You like Jamie Redknapp?

    I'd rather Shearer or Wright over him and they are awful.

    He's not good but Shearer is just a ****. Wright is a buffoon.

    Ian Wright is essential whenever Spurs lose.

    At least we don't have half a season of wondering if City will go invincible.
