I think it has to be equal across the competition

The problem with that is, where do you start to apply it? The FA Cup is a huge competition. Qualifying rounds? Football League grounds? 3rd round onwards?

I guess in the FA cup it has to be semi finals at the earliest, or not at all

I think it should be any Football League ground or above that can install it in working order in time for the tie, at their own cost, if they so choose.

Isn't it fundamentally tv cameras and a tv? I'd have thought they could sort that out from the 3rd round onwards

Don't really see how they could do anything else, if he'd lost a couple more games he'd still have done enough. I can't imagine any other manager doing better really, and he's probably a lot cheaper. If you took the Spurs manager, compensation, his backroom staff and so forth. Probably cost about Ł80m before anyone has been signed.

Excellent news! Hopefully bringing back some stability to the club.

In all seriousness ... what benefit do you get from announcing it now ? Surely you'd wait til the summer - what happens if you don't qualify for the CL but have OGS in charge ? Who will want to sign up to play for him ?

Are you saying that a club legend as manager is any less likely to attract players than David Moyes was?

If we don't qualify then the "top tier" players are just as unlikely to sign if Poccatino (or anyone else) is in charge.

He's done enough in my mind to warrant getting the job, regardless of where we finish, and is more likely to work with a Director of Football than some egos out there.

Was qualifying for the CL really his goal this year? The fact you're even talking about it is a success

I think the whole vibe around the club makes it an attractive place to go. He's shown that he can have a go at teams which is one thing we've been missing these last few years and there is a core of good players there. Plus pots of money for the journeymen who only chase the gold. We're well placed.

Dreadful. And lucky. The only progress today, compared to November, is that we won.

Nah, seems we've going backwards the last few games...really dreadful tonight. I'd be amazed if we get even 1 point let alone 3...seems like CL qualification will depend on how ***** Spurs and Chelsea finish the season!

...I expect a LOT of changes to the squad in the summer, we should keep Rashford and maybe De Gea, but the rest can **** off for all I care!! Please get rid of Pogba, he's a bigger waste of time and money than Sanchez (...anyone remember him?)

De Gea and Pogba both awful tonight.

edit: We're hopeless. They put more effort into the F U to Mourinho than they have in to trying to get top 4 done. No width at all tonight and shot of ideas.

Bit fortunate to go in at HT level. You should have been two up at least by then.

Wolves are a very good team and best of luck to them in the FA cup, so some would say it's no disgrace to lose to them...what is a disgrace is the performance of most of our players tonight...including De Gea! Pogba has shown he is no use to us whatsoever and should be sold as soon as Real cough up the fee. De Gea looks like his head is elsewhere so I expect him to go too. Lingers is possibly one of our most overrated players and I honestly forgot he was playing...I think he did too...so he can go as well!

BIG changes needed...is Ole the man to do it? We'll have to see what the summer brings!

...hope Wolves win the FA cup
