So we don't do Mediawatch on Saturdays. Except when Robbie Savage writes possibly the most ignorant column ever. football365.com/news/mediawatc…
Coutinho has four PL goals and four PL assists this season. Same as Falcao. Same as Ivanovic. Thierry Henry right to cool the hype.
Nacer Chadli has scored three more PL goals this season than any Liverpool player. Just let that sink in for a second.
'Within minutes of Manchester United lifting the FA Cup trophy, their first since 2004, and first touch of any silverware since 2013, any positive feeling a neutral will have held for the club evaporated. The BBC, the Daily Telegraph and numerous other outlets, in unison, reported the news that Louis van Gaal would be sacked, with Jose Mourinho appointed as his successor. It is an incredibly classless act from United. This site and this author cannot attest to being Van Gaal’s biggest fans, nor can we claim not to have joined the rafts of those calling for the Dutchman to be removed, but like this? In this way? On this day? It is the latest in a long line of remarkable managerial gaffes from the club. Could this not have been done in December, when it was first reported? Van Gaal has been manager in name only since the turn of the year, and has, in actuality, simply been an interim, a stop-gap, until Mourinho’s arrival. The club must have known it for the last six months. Instead, the news broke during Van Gaal’s finest moment. Van Gaal deserves his critics for his two-year tenure, but, equally, he deserved his time atop the summit. The Dutchman has infuriated, confused and baffled us, but each negative does not justify this treatment from the club who appointed him to clear up a mess they created of their own volition. The United boardroom watched as Van Gaal endured criticism – some warranted, some not – leading until his crowning moment – a trophy in his fourth country as manager. They proceeded to walk off with another man into the sunset.' Link
