Man Utd, Tottenham & unbelievably now Liverpool have all been purported to be in crisis this season. None of them are. News is money and there can't be a slow news day any more, certainly not surrounding the big clubs.

Hope you did not think I was having a dig mate, I just read your stat and could not believe Liverpool had only won 3 in 11. Seems they win every bloody game.

Somewhat surprised it's only 5 in 11.

Did nobody warn him that those 40 days in the desert might interrupt his scoring record?

Must have a pony agent.

Remember that final, when Rangers totally swamped Manchester?

Let's hope they get out of that group and get the chance to visit (and lay waste to) the new WHL, or the Emirates.

Talk about a commentators curse. On BT they said Danny Welbeck has been looking fit and well recently - moments later he’s in agony on the ground and being stretchured off...

Carl Jenkinson playing for Arsenal. I didn't realise he was still there.
I wonder if he's showing the good form he had with his first season with us or rubbish from the second season.

Forgetting our 3-1 win then?

Did you see his attempted 30 yard volley? It went backwards.

Failing to finish in the top 4 is 'crisis' fo those clubs, James. At least one won't, possibly two.

Mourinho, Klopp and Pochetino have been at those clubs three seasons or more. What have they actually won?

Their supporters have different expectations (delusions) than ours.

The hyperbole seems to be more media driven than fan driven though imho.

James

not sure about that...all of the supporters of those clubs seem to think it's a God given right they finish in the top 4...

He seems an odd bloke, Palace when Sam was there offered him a permanent move, would've been first choice at a solid prem club under a defensively solid manager but Jenkinson turned it down as he wanted more money but they were happy to match what he was on already instead he has spent it on loan and as Arsenal 3rd/4th choice right back
