He's beyond repair. I will continue to defend Rodgers because I think he has potential to be a great manager but he got this keeper situation so badly wrong. If you're going to drop your number 1 to make a point make sure the replacement isn't one of the worst keepers in the world.

Shearer is perhaps the worst 'pundit' ever.
263 odd Premier Leage games for United, you really can do better (or not).

He had 7 straight seasons for United with 25 or more games in Premier League.

And the worst pundit ever title for sure goes to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

OH FFS mes amis! I had a 4 team parlay: Chelsea, Man. City, club of satan the devil, and Arsenal. Should've been EEEEEEEEEEEASY CA$$$$$$$H but fucking Arsenal made me sweat and I was full of anxiety FFS! Probably not good for the heart so much anguish those last ten minutes of the Gunners' match.

PHEW! It was an important figure, mind. MERRY CHRISTMAS! <Ale>

When's the last time that Welbeck scored in the league? Seems a while.

Funny one really.. Cos Villa are quite awful whenever I see them but they're midtable. And it's difficult to say whether or not he should be doing better than midtable since they never spend much. If Benteke was go I think they're done, but they should at least get some decent money to reinvest.

Similarly I don't know who Palace expect to bring in now and do better than Warnock.. They're not a good squad of players. Unless they get Pulis back I can't see them getting out of the battle.

Irvine again.. Not sure what they expected when hiring him? Top half? They're shit.. And he'll do well to just keep them up I think.

Pearson I'm surprised hasn't gone.. As they looked good at first but something has gone very wrong there. We might for once see a club stick with the manager who won them promotion in the first place I suppose. See if he can get them back up again.

Agree. Maybe Steve Clark could be a better appointment than Warnock, but now reading about Sherwood being a lead candidate to replace him... I just don't think he would be any better, especially in relegation fight.

But regarding Pearson - definitely it's Sean Dyche who has a higher chance to be relegated with Burnley and keep his job, he has to be one of the safest managers in Premier League this season. Leicester owners invested a lot of money in Championship, so there is always a chance "we need to stay at all costs" mode will be on during the season. Unless Dyche will do a Coyle-like jump (he went to Bolton during previous Burnley season in Premier League) he is much, much safer.

Wasn't sacked at much lower points in the last couple of years so I wouldn't say he's in particular danger at the minute.

In fact performances have improved a little bit in the last month or so, main problem is still lack of goals but been defensively fairly solid this season and passing the ball better now, e.g. had more possession than Swansea yesterday which would've been unthinkable earlier in season. if Benteke can add the goals we'll be comfortable mid table, which is progression from last couple of seasons.

Should be looking to get 6 pts from the two home games coming up. Fail to win either and there may be pressure on Lambert

Weird, this Pardew to Palace thing might actually be happening. Trying not to get my hopes up, everyone else is getting far too excited.

They'll probably pay him more, and they seem to love him, I suppose Londoners like these sort of characters. The danger here is that people are talking about Pulis coming here, but hopefully they're just putting 2 and 2 together.

The south London club are aware they would have to meet a hefty buyout clause in Pardews contract, thought to be up to 6m

I wouldn't be surprised if Ashley cuts them a deal, this is only happening if he wants rid. It reminds me of us hiring Souness, he was close to being sacked by Blackburn then we turned up and paid them millions for him.

Reading Palace fans views though, imagine having Pardew as a club legend!!!

This would be truly mental decision.

Especially after the summer when Palace owners didn't want to spend more money for players Tony Pulis wanted. And then they would paid 6m for f'n Alan Pardew? Doh Not that I don't believe it can happen, it's just mental.

Someone experienced outside of Britain. Southampton hiring Koeman is the example we need to follow, some of the names being mentioned are woeful and stink of repeating the same mistakes. The last good manager we had was Robson, he was successful and had a track record beyond playing hoofball in England. Guys like Pulis and Bruce would just join the list of British failures with Souness, Allardyce, and Pardew. Some have even mentioned Carver, I can't think of anything worse, we need someone that will come in and boot people like Carver out of the club, the entire coaching staff needs replacing.

It was Coloccini 10 minutes ago, and Frank De Boer before that. I think it's too early to read anything into the odds.

Crystal Palace actually paying Newcastle millions in cash for Pardew? scratch

What do English clubs see in Pardew that I don't. I can name many coaches available right now who are much better than Pardew, AND CP can get them for free. Admittedly whether they want to coach at a club as CP or not is a different matter. <Ale>
