    Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington has confirmed that he will be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of the season. The 32-year-old has featured only 10 times this season under Mark Hughes and is not ruling out a move abroad in the summer.

The People, meanwhile, says that Liverpool, along with Manchester United, are interested in Hoffenheim midfielder Roberto Firmino.

    Ken takes us back to (a fully-clothed) Mourinho: 'Don't get me wrong, Noel, I don't doubt the man's ability as a manager. He does play effective, (if boring), football, and he wins things. The thing is, I think he has been reading too much of his own publicity, and believing it. He used to be humorous because he was being natural, but now it is all contrived. He believes everything he says is clever, and so does the media. Somebody simply needs to say, 'You are a great manager, but stop being a pratt!'.' People say that to me all the time. Apart from the 'great manager' bit.
    14:47

    Rob: 'Noel, put it this way, do you think your heart would be able to cope with Hull winning in the last minute against Arsenal knowing that you stand to win a nice bundle with that being secondary to watching the enemy choke? My advice would be to lay Hull for as much as you're willing to give away should they win it. '
    14:30

    Spanish relegation battlers Getafe have sacked their coach and appointed his replacement with the sort of efficiency so common on the continent and so rarely seen in Britain, where we much prefer four weeks of speculation, rumour, double-speak and at least seven unsuccessful odds-on favourites before getting round to appointing a new chap.
    14:15

    And more from Noel: 'I put a tenner each on Andy Schooler's FA cup tips Hull 100/1 and Southampton 25/1. At this point I'm wondering should I have something on Sheff Utd to win the semi and also Arsenal to win the comp? Or should I sit tight? Any ideas?' As luck would have it, Andy's just walked in the office. His advice is to cover your stake and at least ensure you don't make a loss. My advice would be to wait until Hill win, collect your winnings, go to the roulette and put the lot on black. My second piece of advice would be to ignore my first piece of advice.
    14:09

    Noel Madden: 'So an 'absolute fool' sits 7 points clear at the top of the league. What does that make the rest? Geniuses?'
    13:48

    Brad: 'Did anyone else think Mourinho shaking hands with the Spurs staff before the final whistle on Saturday was just outright ridiculous? Attention seeking and patronising in equal measure. Ken, I agree, the man is now a parody of himself. Absolute fool.'
    13:38

    Ken Livermore conjures up the image of a nakedJose Mourinho: 'Is it just me, or are others also finding the ramblings of the 'chosen one' just getting plain boring? The whole thing seems to have become a self parody to me. The assembled media sit around like serfs around their monarch, waiting for the next humorous words of wisdom. The thing is, if someone else was saying what Jose does nobody would give it the time of day. When he gave his 'little horses' speech does no one else think what a lot of tommy rot ? He then followed up with the stupid attack on Arsene Wenger. The whole thing is becoming contrived, with method meaning more than content. It's all a bit like the King's new clothes, and somebody needs to shout out, the King is in the altogether!' The brilliant thing with Jose now is that literally anything that comes out of his mouth is automatically 'mind games'. He could read out the phone book and stillhave hacks scrabbling around for the hidden meaning.
    13:27

    Brad: 'I think Arteta would finish last in that race.'
    13:25

    A brilliant/terrible idea from Philip Williams: 'Having watched City being City again yesterday, I found myself wondering about the result of a sprint race between Martin Demichelis, Per Mertesacker, Michael Dawson and Richard Dunne, where at the start of the race they had to stand on the half-way line, turn, and run back to their own penalty area. Would anyone in the crowd still be awake to see who won?'
    13:22

    Martin Nugent: 'Much as I understand Paul Cressy getting carried away, I don't think the PL is anywhere near a 2-horse race between us (the mighty Reds) and Chelsea. It'll be interesting to see how Man C react - they'll probably just have the league to concentrate on in a couple of days. And will Arsenal allow their cup run and now clear favourite status to take their eye off the league? Liverpool just have to do what has been preached for decades: take one game at a time. It's Man U away next and then we'll see. Dreaming is great, but we'll have more success being realistic.' I agree with the general tone of this, and your broad point is sound, but it doesn't do to conflate a club's staff and fans. The club may have more success if the staff take each proverbial game as it comes, but the fans can dream themselves giddy. It's part of the fun.

    Toni Kroos remains open to using the idea of a move to the Premier League as a means to secure a better deal at Bayern Munich.

    Rich: 'Brad/Rob, I have to disagree in varying amounts. Gibbs is simply laughable and assume just out to spice up the TC. Rob, judging on how unlikely England are to ever score a goal (thinking back to all the 0-0s in tournaments etched in my memory) I think we simply have to go with Baines. And Rooney has to be told that this isn't Man U where he can do whatever he likes. A genuine threat from free-kicks is a very valuable weapon in int'l tournaments and a regular penalty taker who rarely misses (must check if ever missed) is obviously worth his weight in platinum when it comes to England. Forget the superlative that Brendan used when talking about Gerrard taking that late penalty at Fulham but he sure as anything misses when it matters for England!'

    Manchester City are simply a better side than neighbours United and should be backed on Tuesday, says our tipster Andy Schooler.
    16:55

    Rob Lynn: 'Gordon (15:35), you are obviously under the assumption Suarez will stay? That's very brave. You need to remember that playing in Europe means you can't play your best available XI every week so in order to stay near the top next year, you need some strength in depth and quite a lot of it.'
    15:50

    Gordon: 'I can't see Brendan Rodgers having any interest whatsoever in Benteke as he is completely the wrong type of player to fit in the team being built. Obviously, Borini will be back next season, fitter and a better player after his season at Sunderland and the only other forward player currently playing in the PL who in my opinion would fit in the team well would be Lallana of Southampton - I assume that Aguero would not be either affordable or available. My guess would be that Liverpool would look to buy a left back, an additional striker and strengthen the midfield options.'
    15:35

    Martin: 'Hi Matt, no way was Suarez going to give Sterling a simple tap in - even though his name begins with S. On that note Liverpool should definitely recall Suso next year and go for Shaw. No chance of us paying 30 million for a player!' The likely Champions League money should leave Liverpool in a strong position come the transfer window and it will be interesting to see who they target. With far more football to be played next season I expect a striker or two to be brought in at Anfield. Someone like Benteke could be on the radar if they're willing to shell out. Having said that, clubs are going to be held to ransom over World Cup players this summer.
    15:00

    Simon Wan has emailed: 'Just want to share a fun fact to tag on with Rob Carter's Post (13:50). There is only 1 team in history that won the league while allowing more than 1 goal per game on average. That's Manchester United last year. If you look at Man City right now, it's just a little less than 1 goal allow per game. Maybe we are seeing a shift in the games that high power offense can win the title? Although Liverpool's policy of 'we will score double what we let in' is very dangerous, but no one can deny they are superb to watch.'

    Martin Nugent: 'Dear Matt, as a football (Liverpool) fan in Germany, I was disappointed that El Clasico was not available here. Must have been a cracker. As for Liverpool, listening to the live commentary on the website meant a very nerve-wracking first half. What really impresses me is that the players are enjoying their football and triumphs and coming out after a game and saying how they are concentrating on the next game only. We can only dream and keep our minds on the next game and not the last game of the season. I don't think that the next week will change much in the race for the title. City will still be favourites and still have games in hand. Mourinho will still be playing down Chelsea's chances, but nobody believes him anyway. They played some very good football on Saturday - not grinding out a 1-0, which they are also capable of. My hope (dream) ist that Suarez and Sturridge just carry on. Make us dream...' Thanks Martin. Suarez looks pretty focused still. He wasn't going to square his hat-trick opportunity for Sterling to tap into the open net was he?
    14:08

    Rob Carter: 'On the well established belief that defences win titles, looking at the amount of goals Liverpool have let in (even more than United), it's between Chelsea and Citeh. But whoever wins, it will only be because the other teams let them - just like last year eh '

    Good afternoon to Gordon Mays, who writes: 'An interesting post from Ken (09.20) where he is all over both Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers like a rash heaping praise on the decision to loan out players like Wisdom & Suso when earlier in the season he was complaining about these situations as he was about the decision not to sell Suarez on the cheap last summer. In his second post at 11.40 he talks about the final match of the season at Newcastle being a banana skin - Ken that fixture is at home as any real Liverpool supporter would know.I would agree with Brad (11.15) that it appeared that neither the referee or linesman saw Oxlaide-Chamberlain handle the ball and I suspect the fourth official made the decision but I do not know whether he saw it live or from TV pictures. I'm not sure whether that the fact the ball was going wide makes any difference to the red card decision as the intent was there for all to see. The referee was however correct in ignoring Oxlaide- Chamberlain's plea that it was him and not Gibbs who should go - imagine playing Barcelona and Messi handles the ball and one of the others say it was them and Messi stays on the pitch! Brad also seems of the opinion that Liverpool have not suffered with injuries this season but to my recollection Johnson, Enrique, Agger, Sakho, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Coutinho & Sturridge have all been out injured at some stage of the campaign but instead of moaning and using it as an excuse Liverpool have just got on with the job in hand.'
    12:50

    Brad: 'I'm not making excuses, but it's also a fact that the injuries are the reason for the fall away, not the fact the squad choked. Like I say, any team would struggle having so many from one position out injured. But my main point was that it's not a case of Arsenal choking, simply more a case of not having the depth to cope with such an injury list.'
    12:45

    Chris: 'Ken, thanks for the kind words. Your post got me thinking at a tangent for some reason. I am wondering whether the last games of the season will also be influenced by players attitudes if they have been picked for their countries as part of the World Cup squad but have nothing to play for in the league (as likely is the case for Newcastle). Will they be less likely to put their body on the line? I'd say that would be natural. Newcastle aside, there are still plenty of banana skins for Chelsea, Liverpool and City. Does anyone see Arsenal's fourth place finish at risk now?' I'd say a lot depends on tomorrow's performance against Swansea. Arsenal have already bounced back from heavy defeats this season and I can certainly see them doing so again. Everton could be there to mount a serious challenge should the wheels fall off Arsenal.
    12:25

    The Chelsea fans are coming in strongly now, it only took a little prompting. Chris Scott says: 'Great performance from Chelsea on Saturday. Where are all the people who said Mourinho coming back a 2nd time won't work? As for the champions league, I'm pretty happy getting PSG as i think we can get past them. The Spanish teams may just have our measure this season, but, as 2012 showed you never know. I feel sorry for Moyes getting Bayern, that could get ugly! Re Brad (11.15), Chelsea were missing ramires, William and eto'o after 5 min. In stepped luiz, schurrle and Torres. It's called depth.'
    12:05

    Gillian Heath writes: 'Brad (11.15) - I have to agree about the sending off debacle. In this day and age you expect better. However Brad, all teams go through runs of injuries to either their best players or a long list of them. Arsenal's problem is that every season our depth of squad is found out when the injuries or suspensions mount up. That is why a concerted attempt at the PL title or the CL always falls over. No need for excuses Brad - that is FACT! It is also disappointing as a long time reader of the TC that nowadays we only have fans from the top five clubs (and Man Utd) now contributing? Perhaps the 'our club is better than yours' syndrome that was happening a while back became a little too boring for the everyday fan?'

    Borussia Dortmund may have made it through to the last eight of the Champions League again, having reached the final at Wembley last season, but they trail rivals Bayern Munich by a massive 23 points in the Bundesliga table - and will lose star striker Robert Lewandowski to the German champions in the summer. It's no wonder chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke is talking of major squad investment...

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he would be happy to receive enquiries about his players in the summer because it would be a sign that Cardiff City had performed well and stayed in the Premier League.

    Ryan Bertrand, who will see out the season on loan at Aston Villa from Premier League rivals Chelsea, plans to make a decision on his long-term future at the end of the season.
    I have ambitions but I have to be realistic as well. I will sit down and consider all my options. Staying here isn't something I would rule out. I've had years of playing but since I was 17 I have been on loan, basically.

    France winger Jeremy Menez admits his time at Paris Saint Germain may be up, which could reignite reported interest from Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool. The 26-year-old's current contract at the French champions is set to run out at the end of June, and the club's reluctance to offer a new deal has alerted some of Europe's top clubs.

    Scott Brown has thanked Neil Lennon for turning his Celtic fortunes around and keeping him at Parkhead.
