    The Spurs vs United game should be interesting. With Mourinho, the result and style of game would be obvious, but with Solskjaer it could actually be fun although the United defence will need some covering. A 4-2-3-1 could make sense for them then, offering two holding midfielders to support the centre backs whilst the four more attacking players could be allowed license to really get forward and be fluid.

    For some reason it feels like the sort of game where United won't play that well but will score plenty on the counter in the last half hour.

    I don't think Solskjaer will try anything fancy, maybe keep it slightly tighter than in previous weeks without going full Mourinho. An open game doesn't suit us because Spurs's front three are much better than ours.

    Ole passes the first test then. Good game to watch. DDG huge again.

    So Spurs faint title hopes are over and United have real hope of a Champions League place. Ole done an amazing job really considering how clueless he looked at Cardiff.

    Football fans can be hilariously bitter after a loss. Some Spurs fan went on the BBC phone-in, ranting about all sorts and slagging Chris Sutton off. "Chris, you played for Blackburn"
    "Yeah, and we won the league."

    I don't watch much if any English football these days, but obviously check in on the scores. What's been the difference at United since Ole took over, removal of poisonous relationships aside? Have they changed their fomrations or style much, or is it just a case of blokes having a dig, which they weren't prepared to do for Mourinho?

    There's a feeling of freedom in how they are playing. The team look happy to try and attack every chance they get, without worry. You get the feeling under Jose any misplaced pass would be brought up and villified, even if the team won, so players weren't taking those risks. Under Ole its the bigger picture, so long as the team does what it needs to, the odd over-confident move can be excused. Just knowing that the pressure is off the simple things has allowed certain players to relax, and the natural ability that they have has come back to the fore. Just watching Matic (supposedly one of Jose's own boys) play under Ole highlights the change. Before he was all about safety, taking the extra touch, looking sideways for the pass, and over this season certainly he started to perform poorly as his natural instincts got stifled. He was treating the ball like a hot potato, taking many little controlling touches before getting rid ASAP rather than taking control of it. Now under Ole he's always looking to move it forward, he'll take it past players if he can, and his first touch is once again assured. He's looked a million times better in recent weeks.

    The Metro (god love them, a free paper that's dear at half the price) surprisingly did a decent bit about what Phelan has brought back to the club in regards to training

    His team selections are much better too. Got Herrera back in the team to free up Pogba and played all of our fast players up front. Shaw is starting consistently too, he’s not that good but still obviously our best LB. A lot of the improvement is just getting our best players on the pitch in the right places.

    Can never underestimate the impact of no longer having a miserable prick around the place who only seems to perk up when talking about his own past achievements.

    Bring on the Yam Yams.

    Some comeback that 2-0 down away with 20 minutes left and you beat a team with 5 internationals (ok I counted Crouch but he was once)
