    If Lampard was half as smart as he thinks he is, he wouldn’t have taken the job in the first place.


    But then Everton might not have got preferential treatment from the Premier League to help them stay up.

    Everyone thought Lampard was nailed on for the Norwich job before Smith. Wonder if he would have been better advised taking that one at the time.

    He’s been shocking all season. Should have been dropped a while ago. 

    He was, came on to score a hat trick and the media to an extent decided he was undroppable again.

    It's clear that they were running out of ideas before Clarkson managed to get them kicked off Top Gear.  The train carriage thing (not the one that got them fired, the caravan on a train line one) was desperately poor.  The very best of the three of them was just watching three mates mucking about in cars that were relatable. The next best was when they were explaining why they love or hate a car.  Instead we ended up with an endless series of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Aston Martins that justified their screen time by having bits taken out of previously seen cars, calling them "Superlight" and costing more than their average viewer earned in a decade being taken to places to become beatifully shot backgrounds to three idiots cocking about.


    They took those worst excesses and took them to Amazon, where they had a huge budget that they had no idea to spend except on explosions and guns, only the lack of a 21 year old girlfriend stopping it becoming totally Middle Aged Crisis Gear.  No sense of joy in their jobs, no sense of fun in being together on an adventure, instead a bunch of badly-acted surprise reactions to mean-spirited pranks and destroying stuff because they didn't have to pay for it  You just ended up with the feeling that these three men were absolute morons, and how the hell did they ever get their jobs?

    Bit harsh on May, but otherwise fair assessment.  

    If anyone wants a new car series try Car Trek on YouTube.  Reasonable budget and mildly entertaining.  Certainly better than the us top gear.

    Here's a question. How are Newcastle in the top four when they've not really splashed the cash? 

    Coaching.  How else did Bournemouth stay up until Howe left?

    Dr Franklin doing “inappropriate sex pest” in that one. 

    One of the YouTubers reactors describes s1/ early season 2 Franklin as a creepier version of La Forge when it comes to women!

    Guardiola might have to pull a tactical masterstroke here by doing something crazy like bringing De Bruyne, Haaland and Mahrez off the bench. 

    Will they be in the correct positions though??!  Haaland in goal, Mahrez defence and De Bruyne up top.
