True. Unless the referee told Ward-Prowse to mark Duffy, in which case it really is his fault...

Yeah, for Hughes the combined rate this season is 80% (win 20, whinge 60). He let himself down by neither winning nor whingeing in the 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Mark Hughes' whinge rate* as Southampton manager is twice as high (46%) as his win rate (23%). * He has moaned about referees after six of 13 league games in charge.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg under Mark Hughes: 3 goals in 13 games. Under Puel and Pellegrino: 0 in 53.

On Tottenham, a tie that shows Pochettino's transformative effect and the question if, by standing still, they have gone backwards:

Manuel Pellegrini got around to picking Yarmolenko & Obiang and winning a league game as West Ham manager. And on his birthday, too:

On Southampton & how, after having the reputation of being the best-run club in the PL, they have wasted a lot of money in recent years:

Just don't look at the league table, which lends itself to suggestions West Ham are a pointless club.

The highlight of my journalistic career (and indeed life) was when Sam Allardyce asked if my flies were open.

West Ham's a basket case of a club. Last time I went to Millwall, there was homophobic abuse at a pre-season friendly, so, without meeting either, not sure Charlotte or Graeme deserve that.

Everton is a friendly club. Bit pratfall prone of late (in your case, not just of late). Can be best of the rest (not sure if you really want that as a description of you).

That's alright then. Everton spent about £200M in eight months, wasted most of it and displayed an odd fondness for Sam Allardyce, so again, would question what your colleagues really think of you..

Goodison Park has seen better days and has barely changed since 1892 so not sure that was the most flattering description anyone has ever mustered of you...
