  1. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    What happened today (Man City 8-0 Watford) is what normally happens when a side worth £1.15bn meets a team worth £211m. For the most part, you will get hammered. I suspect there are Watford fans this evening who wonder what the point is when the odds are so stacked against you.

    No idea how we should line up. I think it will be a case of "If Big Frank's happy, I'm happy".

    Mark Worrall tweeted that Kante and Emerson are back in training.

    How else would the reindeer sustain themselves?

    I'd also start Giroud but I'd bring on Bats for the last half hour. He is a striker in desperate need of a goal and needs time on the pitch to score it.

    Teams? No idea. I am just going to cross my fingers for a couple of days.

    Is it not just a 4-2-3-1 playing Rudiger RB and Azpi LB with Alonso on the left of midfield?

    Does anyone know who is fit? Physio room says we have NINE players with injuries RLC, CHO, James, Ginkel, Kovacic, Kante, Rudiger, Pedro & Emerson.

    I think its the game where Jody scored and celebrated by playing his trombone. But it was at home not away. Sutton spent a lot of the game in a kicking contest with Scholes. Poyet scored near the start and I remember Sutton scoring an unlikely looking goal and Jody scoring at the end, but I don't remember the other scorers. Nicky Butt got sent off.

    Is he a horse or a jockey?

    How about Messi on a free next season? He would be a 33-year-old who would demand huge wages, has a repeated calf injury and doesn't seem to fit in with the squad. Sounds like perfect rumour material.

    Chris Sutton: "How would you feel if you're James Maddison and you've been the best Premier League midfielder this season and you see Mason Mount get an opportunity before you?" What is his problem?

    I think the players (defenders and midfielders) were better then but I am aware of the danger of that comes from watching highlights. In the highlights, all players look better than they actually are. This is why they are called "highlights". I don't tend to watch all the minutes of old games and, besides, TV doesn't show most of what they do anyway. I am also aware that the game is getting faster, the players are fitter and the level of the game better. Would superior players of even 10 years ago still look a lot better than the competition now? I am not so sure. I don't think Maka was a better player than Kante is now but maybe they are so different I doubt the value of the comparison. I think a fully mature Ballack was a cut above the current RLC but who's surprised by that. RLC is still developing. I loved Essien, but I remember wondering in some games whether he was playing RB or whether that he had simply gone missing. In the end, it seems to me that comparison is a futile exercise.
