    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    If the 7 months hadn't been broken up by recurring injury problems, then maybe this would be a valid statement. But it's not like he's been free of injury the whole time and just been struggling with conditioning is it?

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Grealish does go down easily, but he is definitely more robust than Ndombele, who seems to be really shaken by each hit. He isn’t just adjusting to the pace of the game over here, but also the intensity, the hits are harder and more frequent. That takes getting used to, especially when you’re...

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    Studs up, over the ball, aggressive challenges on a player with the ball. Nothing. Gio, has the ball, putting his foot down to shield the ball, lands on the opposition player, unintentional. Media outrage.

    Gio had the ball, and had nowhere else to put his foot down. It wasn't aggressive or out of control so I think a red would be harsh even though it looks bad in slo-mo.

    I’m not going to go into details, but yes.

    The Troy Parrott Sketch

    He’s been punished for some unprofessional behaviour, hence training away from the first team, and sitting in the development squad seats at games. I’m sure once the staff are happy that he’s learnt his lesson he’ll be back training with the first team, but might need to work a bit harder to be...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    I watched carefully as he came out to warm up yesterday, before the game, half time and on the sidelines in the second half. He does his super slow, perpetually falling jog whenever he’s going somewhere, and the intensity level is about a 2 out of 10. At half time he and Coco were just passing...

    The Troy Parrott Sketch

    He was in the development squad seats. Players who are in the first team but not in the matchday squad can sit next to the dugout or get friends and family tickets. But given he's not been training with the first team, he can only get development tickets right now.

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Decent cameo, and seemed to have a bit more energy than recent outings, but collapsed to the floor for five minutes at the final whistle as if he’d just finished 120 minutes.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Such a myth. WHL was poor too 90% of the time.

    Club Statement - Pochettino leaves

    I don't know that they would, I think like Barca, they care more about style and philosophy. If Guardiola goes who else are they looking at?

    Will never cease to be amazed at the lengths people will go to in order to slag off our players, or the amount of joy they seem to take in it.

    Club Statement - Pochettino leaves

    Genuinely think he could be more likely to end up on the blue side of Manchester.
