He's been like this for the last few weeks, cracks starting to show?

Klopp this week caused a row for no reason with a journalist and spends his whole life kicking off with every fucker and stands there watching the other team warm up like a nonce outside a school playground.

Are his cracks starting to show?

have a feeling Howe might be on borrowed time 

always thought these owners would like to go for a bigger 'name' at the first opportunity 

I think they were probably planning on getting rid after eighteen months but his performance so far has bought him more time

He'll need to prove he can take them to the next level pretty sharpish now though

A lot of clubs struggling to maintain form in the PL currently - great win one week, abysmal defeat the next

Villa and Everton probably the exception

got to hand it to Bournemouth

3 points from the first 8

16 from the last 8

Looks like the PL is stuck with the skip rats for another year.

On fire since the 10 point deduction.

To be fair to them they've been in decent form since early October when they beat Bournemouth 3-0.  Their worst result of last 2 months came after the deduction, 0-3 v Man U.  Pre-deduction won at West Ham, 3-0 v Burnley in cup, drew v Brighton, won at Palace.  Dyche definitely turning it round.

He did keep saying the opening fixtures weren't the ones to judge him on. Pains me to say it as I still can't stick seeing them in PL, but they'll play some great football with this bloke in charge and he will wind up with a top job in the league.

Why not?

On merit surely, so fair play to them.

Inspiration to all of us.

Oh aye, I forgot about them

What a turnaround that is

I hope it turns sour though, given the way they shafted Gary O'Neil at the end of last season

They upgraded.

Same as when Southampton did Adkin’s for Pochettino. Harsh at the time but correct .

Only in merit when it suits tbf. Plenty of money behind them over the years that has given them a disproportionate level of football. I don’t think we have a divine right to be playing at the top level by any means, but I do sympathise with the idea that having Fulham, Brighton, Burnley and particularly Luton, Bournemouth and Brentford just cheapens the Premier League a little bit when you look at some of the clubs in our league or the Championship.

I'm with you on that.  I'm all for smaller clubs overachieving and being rewarded for good management etc, eg Luton last year or Wimbledon, Watford, Luton in the 80s.  Barnsley, Bradford getting to the Prem.  But taking it to the extreme, with outside funding rather than size of club being the main driver, we could have a Prem with Eastleigh, Solihull and Bromley in it, should someone decide to throw money at them.  And when they get relegated, no problem, the parachute money will see them outspend Leeds and WBA and return to the Prem with crowds of 7k, as Bournemouth did (10k crowds).  Luton and Burnley will be big hitters next season in the Championship because of parachute payments, not self generated funds.

Built a decent team with the Man City links and some good loans.  
 

It’s a small village town in Catalonia. They’ve done incredibly well.  Old they keep going? Can’t see why not. They’ll be no challenge for Real from Atleti or Barca this season 

Beat Barca, gone back top
