Can we drop Ole's "Interim" tag?

But he's still interrimming.

That was funny when I said it out loud. Doesn't really work in text form. Worth a try though.

Petr Cech to retire at the end of the season.

Obviously, they rode their luck against Spurs, no one would deny that but it's only Cardiff...it's only Huddersfield...it's only Bournemouth...it's only Newcastle...it's only Reading...it's only Spurs...it's only...it's only...it's only.

I said it before, I've never wanted anyone to succeed as much as I do Ole. I want him to become manager, register himself as a player, win the quadruple next year and bring himself off the bench in injury time in the European Cup final to score the winner even though he's 45 years old because he's Ole and he could slap my mother in the face with a large salmon and I'd still love him.

Anyway, who knows if he's the long term man for the job but, man, in an ideal world, he would be.

What was the fan's song for him?

CLUE: It's a normal song, with one word of the lyrics changed to "Solskjaer" and the rest left alone.

Dammit man, I wanted one of the glory hunters to admit they didn't know.

I read today that some bookmakers have already paid out on Ole being the next United manager.

There's only one problem... it's the Glazers. Their reaction to "Our new signing is both popular and successful" is to ask "How much are Real and/or PSG offering?". They'd better sign up Solskjaer quickly, because he's not actually there's to sell right now. He's on loan from Molde.

Plus, we don't know how much of OGS's early success is just that the squad was always this good, and it was just another Jose mutiny that was making them play badly.

Sign him up, give him a huge transfer budget and then the real job starts when the pressure is a reality.

No, that's next year. This is just the pre-credits scene.

When I saw your first line I didn't know if you meant Sunshine or German Net but the second part clarified it. I recall hearing two different verses in Sunshine. One is "That Alan Shearer is fucking dearer" but I've also heard "That Alan Shearer well he's a wanker".

This is my morning. "Oh yeah, the Premier League is on. I should watch."

TV: WOW, WHAT A CRAZY START, Wolves lead 2-0!

Me: Of course. At least it sounds like it's going to be a crazy game.

(Of course, no goals rest of the first half)

Me: Ok, just gotta take trash down, since the 2nd half is about to start.

TV (as I return): OH MY! LEICESTER HAVE TIED IT UP! 2 QUICK GOALS AT THE START OF THE 2ND Half.

Me: Really?

(20 minutes pass)

Me: Oh I know what's coming, but have to get the laundry into the dryer.

(return from laundry room)

TV: AND WOLVES HAVE RETAKEN THE LEAD 3-2!

Me: Obviously, the next move is to turn off the TV, because you're just being a giant tease.

TV: You don't want to miss the rest of this one, it's a wild one!

Me: Yes I do. *click*

Going against the narrative that the early games are always crap.

Liverpool-Palace was also pretty crazy. Not used to that helter skelter performance this year. Not a soothing 1-0.

Pretty clear Milner's legs can no longer handle fullback. He was exposed too often by Zaha's pace. With Moreno gone in the summer, a utility fullback that can play either side would be ideal.
