Yeah you have to just hold your hands up and congratulate City, no shame in losing to the best team the league has ever seen. Seen a few people saying we bottled it which is a load of rubbish considering our points total

People will say we bottled it because we were once 10 points clear, but City were always going to have a stronger second half of the season than Liverpool just due to their squad depth alone, the rotational side they could play outstrengthed our second 11 all day long.
I think a few people will look at the sequence in Jan-March with the draws against Leicester, West Ham, Man Utd and Everton, and point out a win in any one of those 4 would've got Liverpool the title. But even so, if someone else is not just winning every single game but almost metronome-like in picking up points every week, there's not much you can really do other than try to keep up.

Hell, when Newcastle beat City in January, I thought they would drop points at least one more time. 18 wins from 19, with that game in January as the only blot, is a fantastic run. They're just phenomenal at what they do and its something Liverpool would have needed to go near-unbeaten to top it. Though I bet some will still wonder "what if John Stones had been a few millimetres more behind the line".

Meanwhile, its something that Brighton have acted quickly. I like Hughton and I do agree its a bit mean that dismissal is the effective thanks for hauling them from a Championship relegation battle to back-to-back seasons in the Prem with a third in the diary and the FA Cup semis. But given there was 3 wins in 23, evidence none of the new signings were really working and signs the fans had turned, especially after the home surrenders to Bournemouth and Cardiff, I don't think a sacking was unexpected.

Thing about Houghton is it isn't the first time he's looked completely out of ideas, his Norwich team went down with his dour football and Brighton looked set for the same.

He's just in that tier of manager that's all good with promoting teams, but lacks that bit of extra to keep them up - shame, because he's a sound bloke otherwise.

My natural cynicism means I'm not expecting this week's "Newcastle takeover" rumour to go anywhere.

Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Assuming we're still owned by MA, maybe when he's 35, available on a free and wants a final payday.
