But on a positive side, how about Ashely Young turning into one of the best RWB's in the game right now.  Very cool to see.

As a LFC fan I find it hard to say nice things about utd, but I like the way they are trying to build something with young players like Martial and Lingard and I think it’s a shame that they aren’t playing the kind of football that has been their trademark for nearly 30 years.

Ashley Young has improved as a player but is still one of the most objectionable little shits ever to kick a ball.

There. I almost managed a whole post about utd without being rude

the way they started their season with the 4-0 wins were greatly inspiring. but then after pogba got injured, they never played the same again.. it's been frustrating to watch the games of late, but i'm still keeping hope that the good performances will be back. i actually fancy mou as a manager because i feel his personality is very much like SAF. unfortunately, he's such a sulk and i don't agree with some of his parking the bus tactics..

New Year’s Day away trip to Stoke to watch a dour relegation battle with my awful team Newcastle. It’s forecast to be extremely cold, with an 80% chance of a downpour of rain.....this is what New Years Day is made for 🙈⚽️⚽️

Sad to say, Toon find it impossible to score in an establishment created for the express purpose of exchanging currency in order to score.

I wish you and your team all the best.

Too bad Coutinho will leave in summer, though, he's playing a terrific season so far. Do you think he'll stay? I mean he's already played in Barcelona once (fo Espanyol) and who would decline an offer from the FCB?

Well that went faster than expected and Phil is now officially signed to FCB.

I’m surprised by the January move, but not that he’s gone.

So the fab four became the fab three now. Do you think LFC will buy anyone to replace him?
Although he isn't eligible to play in the Champions League for Barcelona this season, they have a tremendous offense now: Messi, Suarez, Dembele, Coutinho... and God help every other team if Griezmann joins them in summer ???.

I heard Liverpool may put a £30m bid to Leicester for Mahrez.

Apparently LFC have contacted Leicester to tell them specifically that they are not going after Mahrez. Lemar from Monaco is the main target. Much like Coutinho and LFC he is leaving, but his club want to get the most out of him in terms of playing time and money so a Jan deal is uncertain.

If I were Klopp I would be going after Sanchez about now, £15m would get him and he’d be an absolute bargain.

I’m keen on the idea, it would be a departure from FSG’s principles (buy young and develop) but they’ve done it out of necessity before (Milner). I’d take him on a 2-3 year contract. He’ll want more than that though.

Massive mistake to field that weakened team, disrespectful to the FA Cup too. Arsenal got what they deserved today.
