We should be going close to full strength from now on. Rest in the league if we have to.

I’d rather win the FA Cup then go invincible or centurion or whatever.
Priorities for me:

1. Mathematically impossible to lose the league
2. Champions League double
3. FA Cup double/treble
4. Points record
5. Undefeated in the league

If we won the League, Champs and FA from here on in it would be a quadruple given we won the Club World Cup also.

But still a long way to go before we can think about that scenario

How was the Shewsbury goal offside - doesn't the Liverpool defender play him on?

Ruling was it was in the build-up and not that moment, but couldn't find the offending moment as I've seen three different Shrewsbury players named as being offside in the build-up in various news outlets.

It's as clear as mud

Ive just watched the whole thing agin - I cannot see it. Seems a pretty sh*t decision to me and classic VAR overcomplicating things.

The good, the bad and the ugly of Mourinho in the space of 4 days.

I can handle being outplayed and nicking a win at home against City. But to setup that way against Southampton is asking for trouble which we've now encountered!

Another robbery there. Let’s just not bother turning up to play for 75 minutes and then give it a go in the last 15 eh. Sounds sensible. Such mental midgets we are. Need a clear out in the summer we really do. Just delays the inevitable this win, we’ll probably knock Norwich off and then go down against a big rival most likely

I loved Mou's comments to Hasenhüttl - "the best team lost"

Mou is much grounded these days

Yeah but isn’t his first year or two always a bit like that? I think he seems more humble and less pressured than I’ve seen him for a long, long time, probably ever. At United he turned into an absolute horrible bastard. I reckon he might have learnt from that experience but we will probably only find out for sure in a year or so’s time

I must admit I'm not a fan of the likes of Klopp and Guardiola whingeing about FA Cup replays. It's been that way for a hundred years or whatever, tough sh*t if you don't like it. I agree with them that players are being made to play too many games but the FA Cup is just an easy target, it's not like replays are a new thing. And they're both only here for a few more years at the most so just lump it, don't pressure the FA to change something that won't even effect you down the line.
Wouldn't the flipside to that be that if managers place the cup low in their priorities then the tough sh*t mantra should equally apply from their perspective?
