f*** I dunno why I have that assumption of their away form, maybe I'm still thinking about them last season or something.

Do you not think yous are a bit too shaky under OGS to be competing for titles? When I look at Man Utd I don't see them guaranteed to win any away games for example as they always seem like a Villa, Southampton or even the likes of Brighton, etc could hold them to a draw or even beat them. Under Fergie the bottom half of the table barely had a chance home or away.

I think this season is a bit of a strange one, it kind of feels like the Leicester season because the top teams are dropping so many points. Maybe it was the lack of fans? If the league is going as normal next season and its more akin to last season in terms of the title race do you think Man Utd could ever keep up?

We've played Villa, Southampton and Brighton this season and beat them all. Strange for you to mention away form as we're the best away side in the league. We've won 10 of our last 11 league away games only drawing to Leicester.

The last two years are the anomaly. That was never going to be sustained. Liverpool are finally having a few injuries and things to contend with and it's not so easy when your best player is out injured.

We were crying out for a creative midfielder in Bruno. Since we've signed him nobody has taken more points than us. So we absolutely could keep up, but I think we need a right winger and centre back to become consistent contenders again. Liverpool and City are obviously still better sides, but the gap is close again and we'll continue to close it.

What's your thoughts on Pogba's current form?

Man Utd are rolling in the league right now. Sunday is going to be fascinating.

Think Eric Bailly has looked really good since coming in, and his athleticism and speed are a really good fit alongside Maguire. If he is over his injuries I could see him making that position his own.

Martial really needs to sort himself out though. Think he's been really poor this season and greater production from that Striker position (with either Greenwood or Cavani taking his place) could see Man U push on even more the rest of the way.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

I cant stand Man Utd but I'd love to see them win on Sunday just to sicken some of the insufferable Liverpool fans I know.

They're both absolutely awful to be honest. Liverpool fans probably have the edge, but they're both largely fair weather, plastic fan bases, who don't really support the team as such (as in actually attend games).
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

I think he's been managed superbly by Ole after all the s**** with Raiola. I'm not a fan of Pogba. All the talent in the world but he's an arsehole. He was a monster second half last night but I thought he was pretty poor for most of the first half.

I can still see it being a Fred, McTominay and Bruno midfield on Sunday. Fred, Pogba, Bruno is the strongest midfield but I think Pogba lacks the discipline and desire to put in the shift that will be required against Liverpool's midfield.

Rooney confirmed as permanent new Derby manager. Doubt he’d have agreed to that unless he was comfortable he’d be backed by the group who were linked with us?

Unsure, Derby look f***ed. Read yesterday that they're going to have to sell their best players to balance the books. 1980s Newcastle-esque.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Would be a good move, better move for him in the long term than taking a job in Prem like us.

Could see Arsenal sacking Arteta if things go down hill again, but they won't go in for him. Other than us, not sure who's really going to be sacking anyone.

You'd like to think he'd be top of the list here, but Celtic would be much better option for him.

Depends how well he does at the Euros I guess. If its another respectable or encouraging performance I think he'll want another world cup. Might get the bullet if we're s***, but then his stock might have fallen too far for the Palace job.

The Palace job is a tough one. Once Zaha goes they'll need to invest that money wisely. They dont have much money to splash outside of that.
