    No. In fairness most were in flying form, very engaging and made the effort to talk to us all. A player would pop over to each table of 5/6 during the dinner for a chat. The only fella people had any problem with was John Aldridge. Few of the lads thought he was very disrespectful when he kept scrolling through his phone throughout whilst being asked questions.

    That's the first defender to win POTM since Vertonghen in March 2013

    16 games left
    We have 9 at home
    City have 9 away. Fine details and all that. I'll tell you this for nothing if we win all our home games and also go on and win all our away games we'll win the league.

    Klopp must have sanctioned a deal for Mings to leave in this window

    It used to always seem like we never win after our manager wins Manager of the Month. So I went and checked. We've won ManagerOTM 15 times, and have only won 6 games immediately after. 1 under Roy Evans, 2 under Houllier/Thompson, 2 under Rodgers, 1 under Klopp.

    Manager of the month is not something I ever thought about to be honest but I am surprised that a Liverpool manager has only won it 15 times, if the award has been in place for 25 years at 9 months a year and we have been in the League every season.

    Fergie is the only United manager to win it and he has 27. It seems you either need to be Fergie, or have won all your games 5-0, or be a shit team who has not been trounced by the top 6 in any given month in order to win it.

    Easy for the small clubs to win it as the expectations aren't as high. It's a purely subjective award, so doesn't hold much weight at all.

    At least they now have something in their trophy cabinet.
