Does Rangers get him the Liverpool job anyway? Brendan won everything with Celtic and ended up at Leicester

I don't think it would be as strong a chance as it would be if he is successful at Villa, which is why he is making the move.

But I think being successful at Rangers gives him more of a chance than he would have failing at Villa.

His status at Liverpool is so strong that getting it from being successful at Rangers was a possibility. Being a success at Villa makes it a shoe-in, whereas failing at Villa makes it a definite no.

So the risk of going to Villa is going from a guaranteed possible, to either a certain yes or a certain no.

Exactly. I couldn’t see Gerrard going from Rangers to Liverpool.
Even if he won the few league titles.

Needs to pitting himself in the prem against much tougher opposition than the SPL.

Dean Smith to Norwich seems an interesting choice all round.

Also, Liverpool would have hired Gerrard from Rangers and if he thought the job would be open soon he'd have stayed there. But as it is he wants to manage in the PL and spend more money on transfers so he's gone where he presumably believes he has a chance to build a side that's regularly in or around the European places.

Think I said I was worried about Chelsea’s results masking some poor performances, but their last games (despite the draw vs Burnley) have been their two best of the season.

CHO has really come into his own with Lukaku and Werner out. Special talent and still only just 21. The front three without Lukaku does look a lot more fluid and the pressing is better…

Total football from Chelsea, James is an exceptional footballer and should be starting for England next year. Difficult to see Chelsea getting caught, they look a complete side, and were able to grind out wins earlier in the season when they weren't in the best form, plus their GD is the best in the league.

4-1? Laugh

I presume Ole is staying on, because he seems to be un-sackable. Chelsea could boost their GD even further next week.

Slightly at a tangent, PL legend Sergio Aguero has retired from football due to a heart condition.

Good start for Gerrard today. Had 0-0 written all over it with 10 minuets to go.
Got the much needed win. Now need to back it up next Saturday away at Palace.

Not exactly surprising. Getting smashed by Liverpool is one thing ; but Watford Shocked

Really sorry for the man. He is from all accounts a thoroughly decent and hardworking fellow and has done his best in a job in which one or two others have struggled in recent years ; but it just hasn't worked.

Lord knows who they will get next. Though I imagine many of the fans will be so glad to see him go they don't care if they hire Ted Lasso...

Ole had to go, but he remains a symptom of United's problems. And even now that's evident, they get smashed by Liverpool and pass on Conte. They get smashed by City and let Ole go on holiday during the international break. Then they lose to Watford in the very next game and have to sack him a few days before a big CL game. Just inept

Michael Carrick named as interim to the real interim. Don’t see how that solves the issue.

And now they're apparently going to wait until the summer to appoint a permanent manager. Doh

So, Carrick is the interim interim manager, until such a time where they locate an interim manager to take them to the summer.

Manchester United looking at Pochettino, PSG would expect €10m to buy the contract out, or Valverde as interim.

That is a brilliant appointment by United - six months as interim, then two years in a consultancy role. Fantastic stuff for them and now they can start the process of upgrading their coaching and tactical quality from the disaster it was under Ole to something that can match the heavyweight top three PL clubs.

Stevie G 2 wins from 2. Great stuff.
Good win today. Thought we might get a draw.

Man City and Leicester this week. Tough games, 4 points would be great.

Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United. Sancho scored his first PL goal after an error by Jorginho. Jorginho equaliser from a PK after AWB fouled Thiago Silva.
Decent game.

Manchester City 2-1 West Ham. Gundogan and Fernandinho keeping the champions just off the top.

Interesting that - after this round the top 4 are the only sides to have plus goal differences in the Premier League, and of them only West Ham aren't 20+.

Ralf Rangnick has been confirmed as Manchester United interim manager. This consultancy job starting new summer seems to be director of football. But the wording seems a bit odd.

I'm kinda hesitant on it. Long term he's what United need, but is he actually going to be taking the decisions at that level or just giving advice. At a glance, the way they're describing it in vague terms suggests the latter.

Short term, it doesn't really seem like the squad is built to fit his preferred style, he hasn't spent much time in management lately and he's never managed a club remotely on the same stature as United. So enough questions there for me. It does feel a bit like looking at Chelsea appointing Tuchel and just trying to mimic that at a high level
