Re: The League cup - What's the point?

It is a far better way of qualifying for Europa League than finishing 7th

Re: Help please - parking O2 Victoria Warehouse

Not easy. I would recommend parking at Media City or the Lowry Theatre car park.

You can either walk, about 15 minutes, or catch a tram from Media City to Pomona or Exchange Quays, probably just as quick to walk.

Re: Pope or Hart?

Both should go and we should get in another reasonable BACK UP keeper. Hart - Thanks for trying and stepping in when Pope and Heaton were crocked, it didn't work out sorry, good luck. Pope - Are we a team that can afford to leave 15million+ salable asset on the bench for potentially a whole season?...

I can get the Pope argument, but Heaton stays on his line as much as Hart does. I don’t see how that affects how the defence behaves in front of him. The defence is worse this season in goals conceded. The “sub-stats” behind that are that we haven’t made fewer saves, clearances, tackles etc. Where ...
