He was a lot more useful and effective than Lukaku, I actually thought that lump had been substituted at half time.
Getting found out.

Neville kept trying to defend him, saying he was showing signs of when he was on form. I thought he was shit!

As near as I can make out, his goals have contributed to 3 points for Utd, the others have come after they were already ahead.

He’s totally dependent on others breaking the duck to open the game up for him.

I dislike Conte. A lot.

He whispers too much in interviews and he overreacts to every goal to play up to the fans. He has a stupid hairpiece and he’s not very sporting. And I don’t like his face much.

Also, he reminds me of my ex girlfriend’s mum.

And he was effing dirty in his playing days.

And those three point were his 1-0 goal on the opening day v WHAM if I remember rightly.

Pellagrini and Mancini both won the Prem in their first full seasons. That would suggest they did and did better.
Incorrect. Mancini won it in his second full season. He was also very pragmatic and once they won it they didn't kick on. City never looked this good under him.

Some interesting figures on the Christmas fixture list. Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City have the longest time between fixtures, the likes of Burnley, Bournemouth and Brighton have the least. You'd expect Newcastle to have the furthest distances to travel considering they're further away from most of the other teams but Arsenal and Chelsea also have among the shortest distances to travel.

Sky Ireland are showing today's 3pm match between Liverpool and their feeder club the SCBC

VVD will no doubt be under scrutiny as a potential £70 mill signing,

I am at a wedding today in Herts, and it starts at 12.30.. the groom is a gooner.

The lengths some of them go to in order to miss the game...

Really lovely football by City but not being funny....has Gabriel Jesus ever scored a goal for them that hasn't been a tap in?

This is why I lumped on the fourfold of Chelsea, City, Liverpool and Utd to win - you just know it'll be as bad a day as possible footballing wise so might as well temper it with winning some cash.
