Did anyone see his Instagram story with a photo of him on a medical couch - either just getting some physio or maybe something to do with a medical? (Wishful thinking?)
Edit - just noticed it was posted 15 hours ago so it's probably already covered. If so, sorry and please ignore me!
I don't see 'backup striker' being considered a position. If Herc is saying No. 1 choice in that position then it has to mean starting XI. My guess would be someone like Ryan Bertrand or another full back but who knows!
So long as he's not seen as being 'meh' by Poch then I'm happy. Two in...
Yeah, both live up to their billing as legends! I was hanging on Ossie's every word as he's close with Poch and probably has a pretty good idea of what's going on. Clear to see how excited they all are for the new stadium and where it takes the club.
I loved Ossie's rendition of the cup final...
JJetset in response to someone on twitter suggesting our transfer business is falling apart like Phil Mitchell's descent into alcohol fuelled oblivion...
Will be (champagne emoji) soon ;)
Ali Z suggesting we'll be waiting until the weekend for an announcement, everyone else patiently (?)...
Dier shaves it for me, I love his committment; aggressive when needed, rarely wreck less and never petulant.
I also love that we can enjoy having Hugo without the nagging thought he wants to be somewhere better. I'd guess I wasn't the only one resigned to the fact this would be his last...

"Impressive display from AVB's side - powerful and fluid in midfield."
Impressive indeed Phil, now for your fellow journo's to follow suit in giving praise when it's due
I think Defoe will always be a good option off the bench, Ade you would expect to start as the central striker but there could be more wide forwards to come in that weren't mentioned.
If we were destined for another season of 442 then I would be worried but with AVB's formation I think...
...waiting is a pain, but the pain will ease very very shortly. We promise
('We' as in him and JJ).
I'm hoping that means Verts and/or Ade announced later today/over the weekend.
I think we are mid meltdown! Bale, AVB, Sig, Caulker, Ade, Verts, Investment/naming, Oscar.....
JJ's late night post:
"It's been real and you will have a new manager tomorrow xxx"
Before people read into too much into it, 'it's been real' was referring to his time in the ITK Discussion threads, not that Mourinho will be unveiled today.
Ryan, can you continue on as the voice of jj? Just claim your boss has another well connected friend and we'll pretend we don't know any more!
There must be some way to drip feed us jj wisdom without causing the frenzy we've created before?
