Sergio Romero is happy to stay at United, even if he's a number 2. He gave the standard non-committal response just in case any bids come in, of course, but he comes across as settled and content at United, saying: "Of course I would like to be No1 but I know what my reality is. People back home are surprised I am at Manchester United, never mind being the No1 or No2."

Tangentially linked to United, but why are people treating Spurs leaving their ground while it is renovated for a year, like it's some kind of death in the family? It's not a great ground, Spurs aren't a great side, and nobody should care one way or another. It's a nothing club with no success in the last few years - they've potentially had a worse year than United, for all their pride. The Newcastle of London?

A man whose face is entirely made from a mixture of white pudding and granite has had a pop at United, which is rich, as he is the most transparent Arsenal fan in the media.

Jose Mourinho was interviewed after a game he didn't care about, indicated that the next two games of the season are games he doesn't care about, and then walked off before answering more questions he didn't care about. Mourinho is bored as Hell, and he's not going to take it anymore.

And lastly, Mourinho believes that trophies are more important than the top four. That's not really true. If you're winning trophies regularly but not finishing in the top four, it means you're inconsistent. And unless you're winning the Europa League, you're not getting into the Champions League, and if you don't have the Champions League, you have neither the glamour nor the money to buy the best players, to produce the best football, to entertain the fans. Which, in many ways, is the point.
