Thumbs up Garth Crooks is back!

Quote:
I thought that, for a player of his calibre, he had a shocking World Cup for Spain and that his mental capacity to cope with the big occasion was beginning to wane. Not against Leicester City it wasn't. Two world-class saves and a clean sheet nailed the game for Manchester United.


Quote:
At the moment Arsenal look like they are going to struggle to finish in the top six, never mind the top four.
Quote:
Well, Manchester United are full of surprises aren't they? I didn't expect to see them start the season with such flair and expression. I'm convinced Michael Carrick's elevation from player to first-team coach was the reason for that.
Quote:
The two stars meticulously etched in Pogba's haircut (and you know how I hate his haircuts) signify France's World Cup successes and suggest his ego is very much alive and kicking post-Russia.
Quote:
Pogba is no Glenn Hoddle - or Paul Gascoigne, for that matter - but he is a Martin Peters.
Needs sectioning.

Best gig in the world. Basically puts in the players who scored.

It was only a matter of time before Harry Maguire got into my team of the week

I feel compelled to include James Milner among my selection because if I don't he will continue to be overlooked for those who are more skilful, excellent finishers or those who simply have a better day.

What you get with Milner is nothing special but you do get a wonderful level of consistency. In fact Milner is almost always a candidate for my team most weeks, such are his performances.

The way the Liverpool captain pounced on Brighton's Yves Bissouma was reminiscent of a cobra and with a bite to match.

Eden Hazard: The penalty given by referee Paul Tierney was debatable but there is nothing debatable about the man who took the spot-kick

I must say, I saw Mitrovic play at the Cottage in the opening game of the season against Crystal Palace and I wouldn't have paid 22 for him never mind 22m.
Quote:
I have been watching the fly-on-the-wall documentary about Manchester City's title-winning season and, I must say, it's been absolutely riveting.

I spent a good deal of my early life in football dressing rooms and they are not for the faint-hearted. In fact the day I retired I went to great lengths not to go anywhere near another one for a very simple reason - if you are not a member or part of the team you have no business being in the room at all.

To be given an opportunity to see what goes on in a modern-day dressing room, its facilities, equipment, the science, not to mention the methods adopted for a modern generation of players, is as fascinating to me as it gets.

So I am immensely grateful (and so should the viewing public be) to get a glimpse of what happens during the most intense moments, not just in a Premier League dressing room but the dressing room of the champions. These glimpses might be commonplace in in the USA but they are not to be taken for granted here.

I remember seeing a similar documentary some years ago when my dear friend and contemporary Peter Reid, during his successful managerial spell at Sunderland, gave a camera crew total access.

I remember thinking at the time, has Reidy gone mad? It's one thing having your mistakes choreographed in front of a football crowd but it's something entirely different when those mistakes are highlighted in living colour in front of a watching nation. It takes a very special individual with a lot of courage and self-belief to do that.

My admiration for Peter grew after his moment in the spotlight and the same is true of City boss Pep Guardiola. That Jose Mourinho has seen fit to be so dismissive of the documentary is hardly surprising. The programme was showing all who wanted to watch just how badly Mourinho and Manchester United had just had their backsides kicked.

Manchester City beat their neighbours and fiercest rivals by a staggering 19 points, so to call the documentary 'classless' was in itself misjudged and ill-timed, and made Mourinho look tawdry.

The reality is Guardiola has taken football to another level and Mourinho is desperately struggling to come to terms with that fact.

Joe Gomez: If Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson were the 'finds' of last season then I would argue that Liverpool's Joe Gomez must be the 'find' of this season. The player's calmness in defence is matched only by his simplicity on the ball. The central defender refuses to complicate the game and that is what I find so adorable about his performances.

Three games played and no goals conceded? I thought I was hearing things, but that was the reality going into the game against Leicester City. Gomez has played in all those games But it was his performance against Leicester that was outstanding. This player is a must for England, and I am really sorry to have to say this and put so much pressure on the lad, but he is the nearest thing I have seen to Bobby Moore for years.
