    Realistically if hiring someone is a complete and utter catastrophic mistake in the first place, then you can't really fire them soon enough.

    I don't think thats really fair. Moyes needs a few more games imo.

    He didnt even do that well when he took over last season. Screaming and shouting got them enough points to stay up, but he never looked like he knew what he was doing.

    I know he had a *lot* of squad churn and was absolutely desperate to sign huddlestone, who is having a really decent run, but he has always looked like an accident waiting to happen.

    No need to, the team is doing quite well at the moment.

    Besides, I'm sure Arsenal aren't alone in having a celebrity bellend for a fan.

    Him being allowed to establish himself as an important and respected part of popular American culture is just one of the biggest outrages of our times. I can't fathom how that was allowed to happen. The man is an absolute disgrace - professionally, personally, politically. He should be utterly despised by all.

    They are real. He flip flops so much, sometimes he changes his stance mid tweet.

    If it was anyone else tweeting it, then yes. If it's Piers Morgan, then no.

    Game? Guessing it was an accident.

    Can't bloody vote on this emblem. Online system isn't recognising my customer number. :( I trust it'll be the first one anyway.

    A most appropriate choice of idiom from Brendan to discuss Luis:

    I guess a bit is better than Ivanovic's arm

    So Mourinho wants Mata to chase full backs for the whole game and contest more 50/50's. Nothing wrong with that but you'd think the other qualities Mata brings would at least warrant a place on the bench.

    Just doesn't make sense how Mourinho is freezing out Chelsea's most effective player of the past two seasons for areas of his game that aren't as important as what he is world class at. Imagine Moyes rocked up at Utd and froze out RvP because he wanted him to win more flick ons and run the channels more. I see it as the same as what Mourinho is doing with Mata.

    Let him do it. Sounds good to me.

    Maybe he's returned to completely fuck up the team. Hasn't got over how he left last time. Good luck to him, if he has.

    He realized Mata was a genuine nice and likable fella...so has proceeded to hound him out of the club.

    Can't be having these nice lads ruining his despicable club.

    Well, Mourinho said he didn't like the way they played the past 2 seasons. Mata was their player of the year for those 2 seasons. Think it irks him that Mata was Rafa's main man.

    Really hope he fails.

    I've always liked Mourinho but this anti-Mata stuff makes no sense.

    Mourinho's always demanded that all 11 players pull there weight defensively, it's nothing new. He doesn't believe in luxury players, and in fairness to him, he's had a pretty good career so far.

    See also George Graham. I weep at Anders Limpar being cast aside.

    I dunno. I feel like Kagawa is gaining slightly mythical status right now. It's not like Fergie thought the sun shone out his arse either.

    Yeah, I'm sure he's a talent, but I always got the sense he wasn't quite the player United thought they were getting/needed.

    And now I think he's getting built up to be something he isn't as a sort of anti-scapegoat for United fans.

    I don't think Kagawa falls into that category - he didn't do anything against Leverkusen to suggest he should be in the starting eleven.
