One phrase we’ve been hearing a lot in the United post-mortem is: “the game has moved on.” What does this actually mean? And if the game has moved on, why won’t Jose move with it?
we try to answer some questions from last night. why do manchester united play bad football? why do their most talented players fail? are there any positives they can take from the game? and what happens now? https://t.co/F9gmK4clwy

Then we’re joined by Miguel Delaney and Rory Smith to fawn over Messi’s performance and wonder how secure Chelsea’s hold is on their status as one of the top clubs in Europe.
Plus there’s Murph theory on the speed of the Eddie Jones apology, and Ken has some fond rugby banter memories.
“We’ve only lost one test to the scummy Irish…we’ll get em back” – Eddie Jones, 2017. Our scummy hands are just going to leave this here????.
