A stranger they had nothing in common with

Jimbo welcomes Daniel Storey, Adrian Clarke and Charlie Eccleshare into the studio after a weekend where two Premier League managers bite the dust.

City dominate the Manchester derby at Old Trafford thanks to the likes of Bernardo Silva, a dream player for Pep who plays everywhere and does everything. And Phil Foden who has to play on the left.

West Ham are 3 points off top spot after rattling Liverpool at the London Stadium. Is talk of the Hammers doing a Leicester really that far-fetched?

Villa and Norwich both dispense with their managers. Dan Bardell pays tribute to Dean Smith while we’re thankful Daniel Farke left Carrow Road before it got poisonous. Will we see Gerrard and Lampard replacing them? 

Elsewhere, Conte’s Spurs suffer with their unique shot on target drought. And how many defenders does Eddie Howe need to buy in January to fix Newcastle?

Plus Wilder, mercurial players and the Buxton boss on holiday.
