Carlos Carvalhal, December 2015, on being linked with vacant Swansea job: "I don't know if something happens or will happen. Not today, after one year or two years – it is my agent who must care about that" After two years: looks like his agent cared about that
@intheinaka Nope - there'll be another draw for the quarter-finals. It'll be on 16 March, so draw fans should book the day off work now.
@maciverton In the build-up to Liverpool's goal Salah pushed Martina. Ref waved play on, commentators praised his strength. Lovren touches Calvert-Lewin, ref gives a penalty, commentators see a "moment of madness". Gave the ref a decision to make, but it was an easy one, and ref got it wrong
Cowardly performance from Everton, undeservedly rewarded thanks to a terrible penalty award. Don't understand commentary criticism of Lovren's "moment of madness" - I certainly didn't see a push, and touching ≠ fouling.
