    Swansea have sacked Bob Bradley after 11 games. Giggs favourite to take over.

    I reckon them and Hull are pretty much close to being done for.

    The loss of Ashley Williams was the straw that broke the camels back if you will for Swansea. He was just such an immense leader and defender, he was the rock it was all built on and whilst they score goals, since he has gone they have shipped just way more then they put in. Plus given the position they are in, the turmoil they seem to be in behind the scenes just how are they supposed to find a replacement for him, let alone a decent manager, which are the two things what they need more then anything...

    Also in the first half of this season, I believe if Raneri is the Tinkerman then Pep should be called 'The Faffer'. Buy a £50m center back? Don't play him and stick a left back, an attacking one at that, into the center back slot instead. Top striker suspended? Forget playing his young understudy who seems to score when he plays, lets just stick lazy ass Yaya or well known friend to barn doors Raheem Stirling as false nines instead as well.

    Seriously City have regressed under him. Bravo might be able to pass the ball 10% more accurately then Joe Hart but he can't catch a cold. The defense is just not settled or right, KDB was magnificent last season and now he looks 50% the player he was, Silva looks wasted, Yaya was an after thought, Nolito was scoring and he dropped him because why not? F**k playing effective players. F**k he made Bayern worse as well. He played the best right back in the world at CDM and whilst he did well there he actually weakened the side at RB and caused them issues. Just why faff? Why? Sometimes a square peg is just a square peg, stop trying to force them into round holes - best manager in the world my arse.

    Seriously he has been handed ready made teams and won with them. Then when it comes time to refresh or get new guys in he screws it up, then runs. By the end of next season, regardless of he actually wins any silverware, Pep will not be in Manchester, neigh England.

    Looks like Jose has found his squad and that'll be them pushing back for top 4. But by God it's gonna take a lot of work to dethrone Chelsea for the league this season.

    Swansea look set to appoint Paul Clement. But I doubt it'll change anything following the result today.

    Great win for us tonight...to be honest I expected a lot more from Pep and City this season.

    See above, Pep has faffed, tweaked and under-minded the players he already had when he took over and then when that wasn't enough, bar Iklay who is now injured again, he started belittling the players that where brought in for him.

    That squad is thin as f**k and the players at the back are all getting old in the likes of Sagna, Zabaleta, Clichy and Kolarov. He needs two full backs, a no nonsense leader of a center back and another striker and that's if he doesn't faff with them and ruin them as well.

    Seriously he doesn't build teams, he gets them, wins and then when he gets bored and starts to ruin them or alienate players he f**ks off. He is like Jose but less of a bogeyman.

    I cannot believe that Payet has gone on strike at West Ham and he got a loyalty bonus of £1 million in August.

    However, I am more annoyed that Costa is not playing for Chelsea this weekend, as I found out after I did my fantasy team!!

    Lol at Pep and City so damn hard right now. The Faffer is coming unglued at a rate of knots.

    It will be interesting to see what he does to his team this evening. Spurs are in really good form at the moment. It will be a tough game for them.

    Wishing a speedy recovery for Ryan Mason, who fractured his skull last night during theach Chelsea game.

    Chelsea surely must have won the league now. That 3-1 victory against us, shows how well they are playing and how poorly we are playing. At least we won 4-3 on aggregate over the two league games.

    I know two wrongs don't make a right but Mings has been nibbling at Zlatan all game and then stamped on his head. If I'd have been in that position I'd have smashed him in the face as well.

    How both men are on the pitch still baffles me, how this game is 1-1 and not 5-1 to United also baffles me.

    I can see why Ibra wanted revenge. No doubt the FA will be taking retro action against both of them and I expect they will get bans.

    I have no idea how that match finished as a draw.

    Both will get bans. Too much coverage for them NOT to take any action.

    Not sure Leiceter will get relegated as they appear to have turned a corner. However I definitely agree that Sunderland will go down. I would definitely add Middlesbrough in the bottom three at the moment.

    I have to say that fair is fair with the Zlatan and Mings bans but I'm not entirely sure that Rojo should have got away free and easy with what happened in that United v Chelsea cup game.

    As for who is going down, Hull and Sunderland I believe are as good as dead and buried, after that it is a crap shoot that the last two weeks of April, as usual, will decide.
