No one cares about the league standings in the u18s, u23s etc.

' off mourinho. We need a real manager, not an excuse for one.

Really poor all over the pitch. I forgot we were even playing to day, to be fair. But then I'm not paid a kings ransom to care.

Last 10 minutes I went to cut the grass. I figured I felt like I’d watched it grow for long enough today.

Maureen made one good decision today...taking Pogba off! We handed the title to City today in the tamest way possible...and as the 'current' second best team in the league, we've also given them the green light to dominate the PL for the foreseeable future!

What a ******' disgrace this team is...from heroes to sub-zeros in a week!!

It doesn't look good, maybe the odd flash of a decent result, but this just shows you haven't improved much as the season has gone on. That being said neither has many other teams, can't see anyone challenging City.

'Haven't improved much as the season has gone on'????? Losing to the bottom team at home??? means we have gone backwards. Five years of dross. The board needs a massive shake up.

We are 4 places higher up than last season, have 2 more points having played 5 less games than last season, and last week we beat the champions elect away.

I'd say that's a marked improvement thus far.

Yes, today's performance and result was ****, but City would have won next week anyway, we didn't have enough games left.

We're better than we were, but with the money spent on this squad and the 'talent' on the pitch, we should have pushed City to go and win it at least.

The rest of the league needs to look at themselves a bit, too. Liverpool and us in the second half last week showed that if you have a go at them, they're not the invincibles that the BBC try and make them out to be. However, they are clearly the best team this year and deserved winners.

Some egos need a kicking, this summer.

Not sure you can take a one-off result as a sign you've gone massively backwards, especially as you beat Man City last week. Any team is capable of the odd clanger.

You're second best in the league, barring some mathematical improbability you're in the CL next season. It's not a bad season compared to previous seasons where you were also complaining.

It's frustrating really, we have some talented players, we also have some 'average at best' players...unfortunately, we very rarely look like a 'team'! We were spoiled rotten for 25 years before the maestro handed over the reins, and we've been pi55 poor ever since!

I'm really not sure Maureen has what it takes to get this team back where it belongs, there are some massive egos in red shirts now and he's already had a few less than flattering things to say about them. He's been right to say them but, considering his Chelsea team of scumbags turned on him, maybe he's not the best when it comes to handling players the right way?

He needs the total backing of the board and he needs to make some big decisions in the summer...there are quite a few who need offloading...Martial, Pogba, Shaw, Lindelof, Blind to name a handful...we need top quality, not mediocrity!

Congrats to City though on their purchase of yet another title
