Conte will almost definitely be the next man in at Madrid following the interim appointment of Solari. Ideally I think they would have waited until terms were agreed with Conte before ditching Lopetegui but at a club like Madrid they can't let that run of results continue and so they felt like they had to act.

I don't see them poaching Pochettino mid-season without a significant payoff to Mr Levy, and they are already familiar with his negotiations from the Modric and Bale deals. Conte is a bigger name than Poch, has "won more" and is currently available. I don't think he's necessarily a better manager than Pochettino is but other factors come into play that make it very unlikely that Madrid will come in for him I would say.
The senior players rule at Madrid, Terry, and the heavy gossip is that Conte would not be a popular choice in their eyes. Anyway, during the next 2weeks we'll see.

This Liverpool team is the best side I’ve seen in the premier league era
Definitely a great side. I'd say its up there with 95-96, and 13-14... and then it comes down to personal preference from there (I'd argue 95-96 is a tough side to beat, but then nostalgia is what it is.)

Either way its very impressive to be in the same conversation as those sides and Klopp is doing great work.

Man City to match the Arsenal invincible side ?
Too soon to say. Still a long way to go and hard to tell at this stage how their form will be coming into March and April, when they'll hope to still be competing on all fronts. Start of Feb will be a decent indicator, with back to back (home) matches against Arsenal and Chelsea, followed by their first Europa League knockout match (the draw will be on December 17th to see who they're facing) - come through those three matches fit and firing and they'll be doing alright (but will still have United at OT to face in March and Spurs in April)

All 20 Premier League clubs have been asked for a £250,000 contribution so that the league's outgoing executive chairman Richard Scudamore can be given a £5m farewell gift.

The clubs were asked for the money before a meeting on Tuesday.

It is expected they will agree to Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck's request.

Scudamore, 59, who is reportedly paid £2.5m per season, is stepping down next month after 19 years at the organisation.

The league's UK television rights were valued at around £670m when he joined, and the last deal was worth £5.14bn.

Buck, who has developed a close friendship with Scudamore since becoming Chelsea chairman in 2003, received backing from top-flight clubs during a meeting at Premier League headquarters in London.
