The other big teams left in the EL all drew each other as well - United are in with a great shout.

Would EL and EFL trophies be a successful start for Mourinho at United? (IMO - clearly yes)

Leon Osman on Football Focus just now, talking about Swansea's hope of avoiding relegation:

"I think to stay up you've got to win games when you're down there ... if you win games you pick up points."

Punditry is like comedy panel shows - the same pundits (or comedians) just doing the rounds, spouting the same tired cliches (or jokes) and generally adding nothing to proceedings.

Ex-footballers as pundits are a real mixed bag and I'm not sure why. Why is it that any idiot can get paid to do it? Surely you should have to be good at it? There are plenty of good ones like Gary Neville (not Phil, he's one of the worst), Carragher, Souness to be fair. Just need to weed out the shite.

It must be difficult feeling like you're on the spot and I'm sure they would rather say pointless gooseberry fool than risk something that turns out to be completely wrong/stupid.

But still. Someone needs to just be honest with him in this situation and tell him if he says anything as severely banal as that again he won't be invited back on. It feels as though they pander to B/C list players because for some reason the prestige of having a famous name is more valuable than having someone who is actually interesting to listen to.

Too much sideways and backwards passing and when we do go forward it's at snails pace.

I love the site of Wenger whinging that it was offside. No it wasn't, Monsieur!

Nothing wrong with the goal but let's be honest all managers would moan about it.

Yeah but it's still funny mainly because Wenger is a desperate man now.

It's disgraceful. They've dug themselves a hole and jumped in with their refusal to track a strawberry floating big centre-half at a corner twice. Why didn't they do that? What are they, stupid?

Tempted to put my life's savings on Man Utd dropping points tomorrow and keeping their sixth place run going.
