    Mike Durham: For a managerial debut in the UK, Sami Hyypia didn't exactly cover himself with glory. Big shame 'cause he's a really nice, friendly guy!

    Owelle: Worst managerial debut and no one is talking about Paul Scholes being sacked barely 45 minutes after he was appointed? Ace.

    "Not only me, managers, players, it's such a moment of joy sometimes you cannot contain yourself," he said.

    "Everyone knows it's hard to contain those emotions in such a special moment, the last minute of the game and a goal which gave us such an important victory. "I tried to avoid it but I think I still maintain the referee took the right decision, but everyone understands why I went onto the pitch."

    Voice of Ginge: Kenny Dalglish between 2011-12. Okay, that's horribly harsh. Guess who I support?

    Simon Waterman: Sam Allardyce international managerial debut was a shambles..lasted 1 game, reputation in ruins, yet still went on to manage Everton...the worlds gone mad!

  9. 'It will be hard to stay up regardless of signings'

    Newcastle v Watford (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Newcastle United

    Speaking about transfer speculation, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez said: "I know there are a lot of names in the media but I do not want to talk about any transfers."

    Asked whether Newcastle can stay in the Premier League without making any signings, Benitez said: "It will be difficult anyway regardless of signings.

    "This group of players is trying hard and we will try to get results. I think we can stay up and it could also go to the last day against Fulham. If we do not bring anyone in, then no one can leave.

    On the team news: "Federico Fernandez and Kenedy have been training so they could be involved tomorrow.

    "Having scored seven goals in the last two games is massive for the confidence of the players so hopefully we can keep up the momentum. Watford are a good team but if we play well we have the chance to go through."

  10. 'It is not a great mood' - Pochettino

    Crystal Palace v Tottenham (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been addressing how his players are feeling after their Carabao Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea on Thursday night.

    He said: "The mood is not great, first of all because it’s difficult to sleep after the games. When you win it’s difficult, when you lose it’s worse.

    "We were talking with the players in the changing room after the game.

    Pochettino went on to say his squad is "tired" after being back in training today at 9:00 GMT but that this is a "normal process".

    "But for sure we are going to be in a good position to compete on Sunday," the Argentinian said.

    "The competition doesn’t stop. You need to be ready. Of course, one thing is to be sad, one thing is to feel disappointed, but you cannot stop to think, you need to be ready to compete in the next game."

  12. 'No one will play from the academy'

    Man City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    On Saturday's opponents Burnley, Pep Guardiola said: "When I hear that the FA Cup is not high of Burnley's agenda, so does that mean the 11 players that play tomorrow will not try to win? They have won five or six games in a row and I have a lot of respect for what they are trying to do.

    "We always try to play with a strong team. We're going to play with the best team we can. We will try to win tomorrow, and except Vincent Kompany, everybody can play so we will not play any players from the academy."

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola has said it often enough - and repeated it again today, Manchester City won't make any new signings before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

    However, there could be some movement at the Etihad Campus.

    Guardiola revealed there 'have been some offers' to take younger players on loan.

    Still to be decided which, if any, will leave.

  14. 'We always believe in what we do'

    Man City v Burnley (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City have gone five games without conceding, and manager Pep Guardiola has paid testament to his side's "belief".

    "Previously we didn’t have many clean sheets, but even when we conceded one or two goals, we didn't concede too many chances which is the real value," said Guardiola.

    "We always believe in what we do. Of course, results help but we always believe because otherwise it would not have been possible to have done what we have so far."

  15. Pep sympathy for Thierry Henry

    BBC Sport

    Pep Guardiola expressed sympathy for Thierry Henry at his press conference this morning.

    Henry was in Guardiola's brilliant Barcelona squad but has not done quite as well as a manager himself, lasting just 20 games at Monaco before he was sacked yesterday.

    Guardiola said: "I don’t understand it. It is not my business but I am so sorry for him.

    "I know Thierry very well. He is an exceptional person."

  17. 'I'm open to improving the squad' - Pochettino

    Crystal palace v Tottenham (Sun, 16:00 GMT)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    More from Mauricio Pochettino on possible transfers at Tottenham.

    Here's his slightly spiky response when asked (again) if he plans to bring in new players due to three key players being out injured:

    "I am more than open to improve and to add players to the squad. You can find on the internet or my previous press conferences that I always say the same thing.

    "If we can find the right player that is going to help us improve, then we will...but we were never close. There is always a chance. We have still seven days [of the transfer window].

    "We have more spaces because Dembele has gone, but we have to be careful.

    "We are always open to try to add quality.

    "We have plenty of young players who can play and cover some space."

    Crystal Palace

    Roy Hodgson up now.

    The Crystal Palace Manager seems in quite a bullish mood today in his press conference: "I'm not prepared to talk about individual players we've been linked with other than the one we've signed: Lucas Perri.
