    Kinda wish I didn't vote Chelsea so long before the transfer window closed. Oh well.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    Not bringing in a CB is the downfall of what otherwise has been a very satisfying transfer window. I think Ox can be good cover for a lot of positions but don't see him in the starting XI if everyone is full strength. Genuinely surprised that we now suddenly have depth on the fullback ranks with both TAA and Gomez looking really lively and Clyne still waiting to get back healthy. Moreno is... eh. He's a good locker room presence at least. The midfield looks like a real logjam for competition, but that's a good thing too.

    What needs to be done now is signing Can to a new contract and figuring out where Coutinho's head is at. If he can buckle down, I think we can make a real go of this season on several fronts. If not, well, we might be looking at a second disgruntled Brazilian in the Premier League.

    Also, I have to admit, I am SHOCKED at how badly Barcelona did this window. In the understatement of the century, they better get Messi to sign that extension. How the mighty have fallen.

    Take care all.

    Prediction: Old Manus will become a secret Liverpool fan due to the rise of Ben Woodburn.

    It's a bit late but here we are...not enough ridiculous predictions last time around, we must do better.

    17 year old Welsh lads who both randomly got called up for the full Welsh national team and you don't see Old Manus having a moan about them like he did Raheem Sterling, by the way.

    Probably for the best. I'm on the verge of throwing myself down a well and living there for the rest of my short and painful life. That would've been what tipped me over the edge.

    I had a sneaking suspicion when Mane got sent off that you were behind this.

    In my defence, it's my favourite fixture of the season and magically it was live at a time in my spooty time zone where I could actually watch it. No way I could miss it.

    Having said that, as happy as I am to tank someone 5-0, also a bit gutted. Gutted for Ederson getting totally destroyed. Gutted for Mane as it was clearly unintentional. Gutted it changed the game. Also extremely perplexed and acutely aggravated by the colossal tits who for unknown reasons decided to boo Hames 'God' Milner? Where the shiet did that come from?

    Always a tough game at Stoke. Happy with a point, especially after having such a bad record against them recently.
