    That's all he has done since he took over, turned a corner. Trouble is that he's continuously doing it, so effectively he's going round in circles. They haven't improved one iota since he took over. It's still the same style -run very fast then cross it. That's it. A variation on hoof and hope. It seems that they play without a coherent strategy, a bit like kids in the park: "Right lads, the idea is to get the ball into their net and stop them putting it into our net. That's it".

    No plan, no real tactics, just make it up as you go along.

    The only football team to come from Manchester!
    Their players are like a dog chasing an empty crisp packet in the park on a windy day, all running aimlessly after the ball !

  3. Their position in the table reminds me of that Paul Hardcastle song 'n-n-n-n-fourteenth, fourteenth'.

    No they have a documnetary on slip-proofing boots for Scousers and an awareness course on how to correctly dispose of bottles.

    Albert Steptoe, Corbyn and Vardy are interchangeable, the similarity is startling.

    Maybe but they didn't go to watch them play after 'bombgate' a couple of days later.
