    Had to Google that because my first thought was people are eating actual gold now and I felt a bit stupid. But yep,people are eating gold now. Each to their own I suppose.

    I had a gold flaked hot chocolate when I was in Abu Dhabi a few years ago. What a time to be alive.

    I remember a couple of years back, the most expensive cocktail was in Northern Ireland and it had gold flakes in it.
    I've heard silver is meant to be good for you but not sure about gold.
    It doesn't seem right...ingesting flakes of metal.

    I don't think I noticed anything different at all. They had vending machines that you put your money into and it gave you the equivalent back in gold.

    Good this. The Soljksjaer stuff is pretty obvious and it was always going to be easy for anybody with the correct temperament and less of an ego than Mourinho to get better results out of that squad,but the overall message of how data and man management need to be with measured against each other is something that often gets lost on both sides of that fence. Thats why the best coaches these days understand both.

    Interesting to hear Chris Sutton getting death threats over his opinions. I like him. No nonsense from him .

    A draw would suit us as that would leave them 8 points behind.

    Normally you would fancy Spurs but they have played an awful lot of football in recent weeks with a squad of only about 16 players.

    An interesting point. It could be true, but I didn't think about that. I don't see Spurs as title challengers, and I would prefer to see Man Utd beaten again tomorrow.

    Gareth Southgate is being considered ff o r the utd managers job if they do t appoint OGS. Utd b o are feel getting poch away from spurs would cost to much and waste to much time in the summer

    Have to admit I had to check that those quotes were actually real but with Warnock it’s no surprise.

    Doubt very much if Southgate has any realistic chance of the United job. Has done diddly squat at club level.

    Over hyped after getting England to a semi final after getting a draw they could only have dreamed of prior to the tournament. Don’t think that’s a runner at all. International football is s totally different ball game. Hope I’m wrong though, would love to see him get it.

    Still think Pocchetino will get that job unless Solskjaer gets them into CL or wins a trophy. The problem they have is that Daniel Levy holds all the aces as he will be able to command a Kong’s ransom for his services so there might be a lot of horse trading before it happens.

    We're only 6 points clear of Spurs if they win, all likelihood they're gone either way but losing tomorrow rules them out in the league. Utd win tomorrow is good for us.
