BIB - that perhaps says more about opur expectations than their actual performances. I think you are being unfair to Lallana and especially Migs. He had a wobbly patch when the whole team was woeful...

What's one of Rodgers' greatest qualities? Taking under-performing players and turning them into little gems. He's done it time and time again so right now I wouldn't want us to get rid of anyone...

You do make me laugh. So the BBC have 'punished' JC by not renewing his contract for TG, but are going to employ him again to do something else, no doubt paying him a great deal into the bargain. You...

What difference does it make what program he's on? His employer has made it quite clear they intend to re-employ him in the near future. Does this not run utterly contrary to your zero tolerance...

It seems that far from dispensing with Clarksons' services entirely, the BBC are ready to have him back as soon as he's ready to come back, just not on Top Gear. What message does that send out?

Nah, I think the TG boat has sailed. I suppose he might pop up as a guest presenter now and then which would be interesting but the BBC look determined to refresh TG. I suspect he'll do something...

If, as looks likely, we finish the season on 70 pts or there abouts, BR will have averaged just under 72pts per season for his first three seasons. Compare that with Rafa - 69, Houllier - 72 & Evans...

I'm not sure the result could have been any better for Hamilton. Kimi took points off Nico and Seb lost out big time after his off. Ferrari's only (slim) hope of upsetting Lewis now will be to impose...

Losing a cup semi-final is no reason to sack a manager. Sadly 5th in the league is probably the realistic best we can expect given our squad so again, that's no reason to get rid of BR. What might be...

At least there was some action. In past seasons we've been able to literally count the number of passing moves per race on one hand. I appreciate the close racing no matter where it's taking place....

Not sure there's any connection between the 2 at this point in the season. Its not like those 2 extra games (hopefully) are going to put undue stress on the squad. If we were actually in the top 4...

Didn't Lallana pull out of the recent England squad due to injury? I assumed it was a cop-out injury but obviously not.

5th is looking the liklely outcome now. No reason to give up yet, though. If Arsenal or Utd have a couple of bad results we can still make it an interesting run in.
