Team needs to sort themselves out without Pogba on the pitch. It's like night and day without him.

Everton lost 5-1.

They conceded three goals in eight minutes. :lol: :fp:

That's embarrassing. Both the Redknapp video and the Everton score.

Been watching NBC's coverage of the NFL tonight and they've been hyping up Liverpool vs Chelsea on Saturday as part of a "Premier League Morning Fan Festival" that is coming from South Street Seaport in Manhattan.

Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Mustoe and Robbie Earle will mingle with supporters, and this special event will include a turf pitch, match-viewing areas, a special glimpse at the Premier League trophy before it is handed off to this season’s champions, Chelsea youth coaches, the club’s mascot, and more.

Plus there’ll be other celebrities in attendance such as Andres Cantor (from Telemundo Deportes), Ashley Cole (ex-Chelsea and Arsenal) and former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburger.

Supporters will be out in full-force to cheer on their teams ahead of the day’s big matches: Manchester United v. Brighton & Hove Albion at 10 am ET on NBCSN, Tottenham v. West Bromwich Albion at 10 am ET on CNBC, and culminating on NBC with Liverpool v. Chelsea at 12:30 pm ET. In addition, Lowe will host The Goal Zone at 2:30 pm ET on NBC, Live from the festival, joined by Earle and Mustoe.

Wouldn't mind seeing this myself, instead of Sky/BT's predictable coverage.

I don't get why are people so down on Harry Redknapp?
Is this the usual tribal jealousy thing you get in football?
Does he just belong to a different (and probably better) club that the one you support and therefore is "bad"?
Presumably this would change and he'd become great if he switched to your team?

No sane person would want him to manage their club now. His last two jobs were disastrous. Still better than Moyes though.

He was a decent manager at his peak despite what some think on here. Should he have been given the England job? Yeah as we hired much worse than him.

People laugh at him for his wheeling and dealing. Signing the same players for clubs he manages and of course opening bank accounts in his dogs name overseas.

Well he was a great manager for us!

History has pretty much cleared his name regards the overspending, but of course he still cannot be fully forgiven for leaving the club for Southampton, a real dick move.

I think the problem with Redknapp is hes inherently quite a selfish man, and could have commanded a hell of a lot more respect in his football retirement without it.

What's this? Transparency from the FA over a banning decision? :o

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42113397

Still doesn't solve the issue of it making a difference in the actual match, but if there's bans for all future incidents to this degree (i.e. where the 3 panel members conclusively agree on it) then it should show a decline in diving...

Just need to get the pundits to realise that contact =/= foul...

He's a wheeler-dealer.

Need to show a lot more desire in the second half if we want to win this.

Watching the BT Sport Scores show thing; Robbie Savage is stealing a living as a pundit.
