    Race for the Top 4 - 2018/19

    The league is a war of attrition and Liverpool's injuries are starting to mound up, compared to City's financially doped squad The scousers will go to City in early Jan and lose; City will be too good for them against a depleted defence It's all to do with resources and City have a country...

    Premier League 2018/19

    Don't think they won the league for 26 years before Fergie turned up. That said, times have changed and they still have substantial financial muscle to back any new managerial appointment

    I haven't watched much of him this season, but the pundits on 5-Live were raving about him pre-match I suppose he gives Liverpool the opportunity to play out from the back, which Klopp seems to want

    Premier League 2018/19

    Trouble is, Utd's rivals have players who can score 25+ league goals a season, so the pressure is really on him...and he's only ever got 20+ league goals in a season once Klopp, Pep or Poch would get more out of him for sure, but I'm not sure he'll ever reach the heights of European football

    Dennis Man

    Off the top of my head I can only think of 2; Cristian Chivu and Adrian Mutu, with the latter having obvious off-the-pitch issues. He was still a talent, however.

    Surprised he said "bring in a few" Perhaps he meant, we're "we're looking at a few" and then we'd bring in one? That said, a loan deal until the end of the season and/or a couple of young prospects might be doable?

    Dennis Man

    Although not a perfect method, I usually go to a national team's wiki page and view the 'Current squad' and 'Recent call-ups' to see which clubs a nation's players play for. This usually gives a good indication of how competitive it is to get into the national team, and the general standard of...

    Bottlers?, nah sorry.

    Yeah, the 'bottlers' tag is lazy and gets over-used Most of the time it's applied to us when we suffer a loss against genuinely good opposition, whether it be in a cup game or over the course of a season where we're up against a team with much more £££ than us If we were regularly losing...

    So how are Spurs viewed around Europe these days? We've been in the CL for a while now with some great results; are we getting a bit of a reputation?
