From what I'm hearing, INEOS want a puppet, someone they can control.

They won't have a say in players coming and going, they will be given players and told to work with that. They will just be there to coach the side, nothing more.

The side will be run by committee basically. I don't recall that working well.

That might explain the link with O'Neil a while ago and now the link with Mckenna.

A lot of clubs are run this way now - it makes it a more seamless process when a coach moves on. Whether it's successfully implemented though, will depend on the people running the system.

Arne Slot has accepted his position at Liverpool will be head coach and not 'manager'.

Liverpool have their transfer committee and while they listen to the manager and do sign players he wants, they dont sign all of them. For example, Klopp famously wanted Julian Brandt instead of Mo Salah, but he got overruled. Not many teams get the balance right.

Going for the 4-2-2-2 again.

It sounds like Casemiro has been dropped completely. Hojlund and Amad on the bench.

Wait Cas is on the bench.

A lot of conflicting reports about it. He wasn't originally listed.

Late injury issue for Cas which is why he's on the bench. So I don't see him playing at all today.

We were meant to have a full strength side this game. We were meant to have Shaw and Martial back, but now both of them are out and lost two more in Cas and Maguire.

We cannot field our best 11 this season.

Casemiro injured last minute just sums up the season perfectly

I feel this is going to be a pretty easy win for City.

I'm calling 3-0.

Not sure why Foden didn't shoot there.

Why not play the advantage there?

Rashford has a lot of space there but he goes back for the free kick.
