There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

An absolute joke.

Don't know what it is about Ranieri but he's got a way of making you feel sorry for him. Seems like a genuine manager. But that's the money for you.

That's pretty much the nub of it. Ranieri's replacement won't win them the league again but he might just save them from relegation, which is what the owners will be worried about.

Absolutely disgraceful. They need to remember where they were just before they appointed Ranieri. I had hoped they would stay up, but would love to see them go down now.

Gah, it's the hope that kills you.
You Corbyn folk who hoped he'd step down for a younger, more electable lefty...that's what this is, without the stepping down. Sort it out.

He's a bit quicker than Trotter, but not sure he has the passing range.

I hope Suarez breaks his legs in the next game. Cheating bastard.

Insane bit of football but it shouldn't have happened.

Ha! Though if I were him I must say I'd be struggling to get my head around it too given who is in their plans!

Just watching MotD from last night. In the West Ham vs Leicester game Kasper Schmeichel makes an absolutely outstanding save from a point blank shot by Andy Carroll. As such, the commentator and the studio panel start falling over themselves to draw parallels with his dad.

At which point does the world come to recognise that Kasper Scmeichel is an excellent goalkeeper in his own right?
