    I was a very anti Mourinho person and thought he was totally past it after Utd, however I’ve warmed to him after the Amazon show. To me, he comes across as quite a decent bloke on that. I never thought I’d say this but I’d be pleased if him and Spurs won the league. The Leicester season was by far their best chance, but this is probably the second best chance they’ll get.

    Kepe Son and Kane fit defiantly.

    This is exactly what he wants you to think.

    Jose wasn't great at Man U but his replacement isn't having a great time of tine - particularly at home.

    Just watching MOTD, and WBA's keeper saved Fernandes's penalty, but it was retaken due to the keeper moving off his line too soon. But Fernandes hesitated in the middle of his run up, and that must be unfair on the keeper. I think all common sense has gone out the window.

    That is what Ian Wright said.


    And WBA should have kept their penalty too.

    It hasn't just gone out of the window,it's taken its passport,luggage and keys and gone abroad.
    Reassuring to see Smith moaning about a poor decision for Villa.
    Shut up Faceache and remember all the dubious decisions you received last season.

    Fulham just equalised against Everton with a decent goal. Doucoure looks bang average at the moment.

    On an ex player note, Richarlison is their best player by a mile watching this.

    Doucoure just scored a great header. Everton now winning 3-1 after just 35 minutes. Fulham look even worse now than they were the last time they were in the Premier League.

    Ivic would hate this game.

    2 teams that don't defend and attack at will.

    Glad VAR didn't rule out the Everton 2nd goal.

    Was an excellent team effort and I've got Calvert Lewin my Fantasy team.

    Yeah I totally put the mouth on it with my comment, as I usually do!

    I have just come back in from shopping,cleaning the car and refilling the feeders.
    Given the third goal I would suggest FFC prepared lunch and I marked Doucoure as none of them seemed to be doing so.
    Fulham have been down since they went up. They are less likely to stay up than Parker is of constructing a coherent sentence.

    Who would’ve thought the very next Fulham penalty taker could actually take a worse one than Lookman?

    I just don’t get it. The advantage is massively in favour of the penalty taker regardless of what the keeper can or can’t do. How many penalties actually prevent a certain goal? Most are just for pathetic trips somewhere in the box, that if they didn’t happen 9/10 a goal wouldn’t have occurred. Why make it so hard for the keeper that they can’t even move off their line? It doesn’t matter if the keeper can move off his line or not, 80% of penalties will still be scored (unless you’re Fulham) but at least 80% of scenarios that lead to the penalty wouldn’t have resulted in a goal should the penalty not have occurred. It’s just making it unnecessarily hard And unfair for keepers in a scenario where the odds are already stacked against them.

    Hard to achieve but credit to him he managed to put his feet on the wrong way around,like a three year old and their shoes!
    Extraordinary performance.

    Relegation battle already looks like to be a 4 team battle.

    Sheffield United losing again and only just 1 point.

    Yeah, at least with us it was pretty much 3 from 6 (and we still ****ed it up) This year Brighton look half decent and anyone from them up is a lot better than the bottom four are. Basically one survival spot up for grabs and that’s it.

    Pepe cost 72 million ?

    Bad thing for the bottom teams is that it’s 9 points separating 1st to 15th then 10 points separating 15th 20th.

    Not to mention the fact that apart from Fulham,none of them look in the least bit likely to score,ever!

    He'll love watching Burnley v Palace then...

    2 teams that certainly don't play the way he likes football to be performed.

    Leicester well beaten by Liverpool's "Reserves" - well you'd think it was!

    Klopp will be moaning about VAR then !

    Goal rules out for a nail being offside.

    He went on a similar rant the other day.

    I have no sympathy at all for him or the other big teams moaning about the fixtures and wanting five subs.

    When they play each other they don’t even make three subs, because In the most part they need their strongest 11 on the pitch and any changes would be purely tactical, nothing to do with resting players.

    They only want the five subs so that as and when they play the weaker teams and find themselves a couple of goals, up they can chuck five subs on and rest their better players then. Weaker teams don’t have that luxury, games are never going to pan out in a way that they can afford to change half their team.

    If they don’t want as many games don’t qualify for Europe.

    Reading the thread on him in the Everton forum is pretty amusing this evening. Sounds like he's crashing and burning at the moment.

    The only thing in their favour is that the bottom four are so spectacularly **** this season a couple of wins and they’re potentially out of it.

    On the flipside it’s probably about 99.5% likely that the relegated three are in that bottom four already, so they’re obviously as good a bet as any of them to be one of them.
