    Probably the right time for him, the club clearly have already moved on from him.

    Don't think he's played a full 90 minutes for Chelsea since october?

    If Chelsea win the league, he'll get to lift the trophy despite making less of a contribution than Michael Owen did at Man United in 2011.

    RIP Ugo Ehiogu.

    Really sad news, just 44 years old. My best wishes to his family.

    Just looking at City's ageing squad and wondering what way Pep is going to go with the overhaul.

    Sagna - 34
    Toure - 33
    Zabaletta - 31
    Kompany - 31
    Kolarov - 31
    Clichy - 31
    Navas - 31
    Silva - 31
    Fernandinho - 31
    Nolito - 30
    Otamendi - 29
    Fernando - 29

    That's a lot of players coming to the end of their careers - almost all will likely have to be replaced within 2-3 years.

    At the other end of the spectrum they have Iheanacho (20), Gabriel (20), Sane (21), Sterling (22) and Stones (22) as a highly promising group of youngsters already playing at a high level.

    In the middle they just have De Bruyne (25), Gundogan (26), Delph (27) and Aguero (28).

    So, who does he replace the old timers with - the very best youngsters? Or do they attempt to attract the best players in their prime? If it's the former, can they keep enough of the old heads around long enough to help the kids along?

    I think I'd be gutted if Utd win the EL and, with other trophies, portray the first season under Jose as successful, considering how bad they actually are.

    I don't think they are bad to be honest, play some decent stuff, just struggle to finish teams off.

    Looking at how bad they are it shows how wrong we have got things

    Definitely. They now face Celta Vigo in semi final, and one of Lyon or Ajax in final. Looking back to our run (Utd, Dortmund, Villareal, Sevilla..), this is a free CL pass and a trophy! But trophy is a trophy and Jose already added 1 (or even 2) to the Utd locker.
    Considering us, that's quite disappointing.

    They are boring (and lucky) as hell and it's only a miracle that defense and midfield brought them where they currently are. Honestly, if you take DDG out of their team, that's a midtable side.

    I wouldn't agree with that mate.

    Which part?

    I can certainly see arguments for the points you emphasized in quoting his post. Take away all their off-side goals/give the wrongly ruled off goals and they're down a good 15 points which is mid-table territory. Watch the match vs us at Anfield for exhibit A of boring. You can't possibly look at the back lines they've regularly put out with Carrick or Herrera as DM and think "that's a league leading defense"

    I would disagree that without De Gea they would be a mid table team and that they always play boring football. I don't watch them much admittedly.

    Also, their defence has conceded the second least amount of goals to be fair.

    I think their Europa league exploits will have a real bearing on the top 4

    4th May: Celta v United
    7th May: Arsenal v United
    11th May: United v Celta
    14th May: Spurs v United

    That's some fixture list there! I wonder how where the priorities lie?

    Odds are very good they "throw away" the Arsenal game to play a top side in the first leg. The rest really depends on how the first leg goes. In any case we can be sure Moaninho will cry about the fixture bloat if they don't win all of them...

    Celta will put them out. Nice little attacking who score a lot of goals. They'll beat them at home then score at least 1 at OT.

    If Baily and Blind play, I fancy an upset too.
    Hope Rojo, Smalling & Jones won't be available anymore.
