From the outside looking in, the next 12 months are going to be a fascinating, revealing insight into the mindsets of the decision-makers at Old Trafford. But short of building a time machine in order to go back and nudge Pep Guardiola to the other side of Manchester, there's no solution that'll keep everyone happy.
Pochettino is at the right stage of his career, at the right club, with the right squad to make a history-making difference. He could be the next man at Chelsea, the man in the shadow at United, or THE man at Tottenham Hotspur. It doesn't even seem worth consideration.
There's a clock in my father's kitchen. It's on the wall, right above the phone and the pad of paper my father insists on keeping next to the phone, a...
There will be a void of character and admiration at Stamford Bridge this summer. The most successful captain in Chelsea's history will leave the club and affectively close an incredible chapter in the club's history.
Liverpool won't go down this season. But unless something changes at Anfield pretty soon, fans and players alike are going to have to start looking over their shoulders - and they won't like what they see.
Louis van Gaal has endured more than his fair share of criticism since taking over at Manchester United in the summer of 2014. He's been accused of all sorts of things and oversaw a terrible run of results at the end of 2014. But above all else, what he's achieved is steady progress. It may not seem obvious, but it is there.
Look, it's the New Year, it's that time of year to make some wild predictions and spend the next 12 months trying desperately to justify them, before giving up and trying to hide them by the time it gets to November and December. Then you go and do it all again in January. It's basically tradition... In that spirit, here's a nice, clear prediction that's next-to impossible to weasel out of: Chelsea will finish 2016 at the top of the Premier League table.
The Premier League's gone a little bit bonkers this season, hasn't it? Leicester at the top, defending champions Chelsea battling down around the relegation spots, an ex-Non League striker equalling a Premier League goalscoring record...
Mourinho knows where the problems are in his team, is one of very few managers in the world whose track record suggests that he's got the skills to turn the current situation around and is stubborn enough to make the changes that are needed. If nothing's changed by, say, March, then the conversation becomes very different. But until then, as the kids say, #JoseIn.
Earlier this week, E4 broadcast an interesting programme called "How to Live the Chelsea Life," about an exclusive, high-end house sharing company, which prides itself on only renting to aspirational, young, sociable people. And by interesting, I mean it made me want to pour sulphuric acid directly into my retinas.
Eden Hazard has some serious improving to do - with both his performances and his attitude - even if he's to enter the conversation as one of the world's best players, and he's going to need to step things up if he's actually to be deemed worthy of stepping in to the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Spanish capital.
This is largely the same side which has fallen short two seasons in a row now, and in the few years before then didn't come close at all. Arsenal may be contenders now, they may still be in February. But come May 2016, when it matters the most, will Arsenal really be in a position to challenge History suggests not.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is well known for being controversial throughout his career, but his latest outburst has left people baffled and annoyed...
Despite Remy's decisive contribution against Steve Bruce's side, he is unlikely to usurp Costa as the chief provider of goals at Stamford Bridge anytime soon. The harsh reality for Remy is that he is a victim of Jose Mourinho's preferred 4-2-3-1 system.
It seems to be that English sides are suffering from a lack of identity. The Premier League does not create, it imports. Until English sides start producing talent instead of hoovering it up, the poor European results will continue.
