I watched his press conference in full earlier and I have to say, I’m concerned about the guy, it was crazy.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

OK. The BBC posted an announcement about it 48 minutes ago, so it's news to me.

This sounds about right for the BBC in terms of being up-to-date with breaking headlines these days.

Wasn't it officially ratified today or something? There was a thing on the SSN ticker I think.

Let me just consult the VAR to confirm which of you is correct...

Ok so I've rewatched the Jose rant and I actually think the word he meant instead of “heritage” was “inheritance”, and then his speech makes far more sense and comes across far less offensive to United fans. I think he was actually trying to say that Pep inherited a side used to winning, whereas Jose didn’t, which is fair enough. People assumed he was saying that City have more heritage than United which is obviusly not true (although recent history you’d have to say they’re pretty close. Doesn’t excuse the performance against Sevilla, but I can accept what he said. Those are the facts, as they say on Merseyside.

Look you can contort what Jose said into what you want, you can’t argue that it wasn’t bat sh*t mental tho.
