"Are you minister of sport? Or police? Or transport? Or twitter?"
Skreech Black (@1dile_mufc) made some interesting observations:
"Nothing has changed? Clearly people are not watching OP. Quite a lot has changed actually, from players positions to the style of play. Sometimes brilliance is not in changing things but in tweaking them."
