Spurs the first Premier League side to score 7 in an away match.


Didn't United win 8-1 at Forest late 90s? Solskjaer came on as a second half sub and scored 4 I think haha. Something crazy like that.

Penalties it is

We're one division above Forest Green

3-2 Blackpool and 3-3 between Carlisle and Exeter in the League Two play offs first legs.

Banner flown over at Stoke..."Wenger out means out" or similar.

Even if he wins the FA Cup and finishes in the top 4?


That's exactly what they aren't satisfied with though, settling for top 4 finishes. If a strong end to this season and scraping 4th meant Wenger stayed then it'd only be exactly the same next year (CL last 16, fighting for 4th).

Stoke are dire. Hughes is undoubtedly a good manager but it's gone very stale there, best for both parties if he moves on.

Don't think Guidetti was expecting to have it squared to him, still no excuse though.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Well, there we go. An absolute disgrace what has happened to Rovers in the last six and a half years.

Please Venky's just f*ck off and let us rebuild.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Hull would have seen today as a chance to extend their lead over Swansea, looking at both team's fixtures. Couldn't have gone any worse for them! Advantage Swansea now.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Well, today we'll know our fate either way. Venky's out

Ibra, Giroud, Suarez


I know Giroud did it once but I really wouldn't put him alongside those two
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png


Oops, maybe not.

Surprised at the 3-0 scoreline last night, tie over now. Let's see how it goes tonight.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
If he wants to play the groundsman at left-back on Saturday, he's perfectly entitled to do that as well. So long as they're registered to play, it's none of the Football League's business who does play.


Bang on the money.

I remember when Mick McCarthy, when at Wolves, made 10 changes for a midweek away game at United before playing Burnley (I think it was) at the weekend - which they won. They got done for the 'weakened team', if I remember correctly he said something like "who are the FA to decide what my strongest team is?". And he's right! Squad of players, use it however you please.

I'm getting tickets tomorrow for Brentford away on Sunday. Seriously early start with a midday kick off, and could be a wasted trip if we go down......we'll see.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Losing 2-0 to 10 men with a whimper tells us an awful lot about those squad players called upon today. I'm really sorry for Blackburn and Forest, to be honest,


Don't worry, you've got every right to do what you want with your squad of players. You've already achieved your target and if Wagner felt like today's team selection was best for you as a club then so be it. Just out of interest, do you think he'll do the same for the last game of the season?

We did what we had to do today (thanks Villa for being dreadful and some Villa fans for cheering us on) but still not confident for next week, Brentford away.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Congratulations Newcastle.

I have a feeling we will settle for a draw or deliberately roll over and die against Blackburn on Saturday so that Birmingham drop into the relegation zone. (Assuming that they lose to Huddersfield as expected)


We probably still wouldn't beat you even if you play at 50%. But yeah please do your best to let us win! We've been so blunt going forward last few games you might have to kick it in your own net.

And I've got a bad feeling Birmingham will beat Huddersfield. Redknapp's first home game, Huddersfield's poor record v struggling teams, Huddersfield playing tonight so less rest, etc.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
It's almost like Empoli and Crotone have just realised that getting relegated would be a bad idea.


Winning successively at Fiorentina and Milan (Juve for example lost both of these fixtures!) is some going for Empoli, considering before these two games they could barely score a goal.

The Milan clubs, though......you think they might be getting a bit better and then they have results like they both have this weekend (and recent games too) to remind you how poor they really are. Would like to see Milan become a great team again, not too bothered about Inter haha.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
I went to Wolves today. It was absolutely dire and would be 0-0 if they were still playing now. To say we needed a win we were extremely cautious (or just rubbish). We're going down.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Bayern were hard done by with some decisions last night; Vidal's second yellow was a joke and Ronaldo was a yard offside for his second. 4-2 wasn't a true reflection of the game at all.

Juve and Monaco to get through tonight I'm going for. (not exactly earth shattering predictions after the first legs admittedly!)
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Phoenix Arrow, there's a name I haven't heard for a while.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
To be fair if we hadn't slipped up against Rovers twice (and Fulham twice and Sheffield Wednesday twice), we'd have 6 more points and would be in an infinitely more relaxed position.


Very true!
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Draw at home to Bristol City for us, not exactly the ideal result, but we're a point closer to Forest and Birmingham than we were a couple of hours ago. Still though this was our 'easiest' fixture on paper of the remaining games.

If Huddersfield hadn't slipped up v Bristol City, Forest, twice against Rovers they'd probably go up in 2nd and take advantage of Newcastle's poor form.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
3-0 Juve tonight, no coming back from that for Barca.

Dortmund-Monaco to be played tomorrow after the shocking incident with the Dortmund team bus.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
I'm not so sure about Empoli to be honest. They've only got 1 point in the last 9 games and if they keep that up and Crotone can get another win from somewhere then the gap will be down to 2 points.

For the first game I felt the chances were there to beat them, maybe not clear cut chances but still chances which is about as good as it gets against Juve these days. I think Mertens hit the post and had a shot straight at Buffon from inside the box and on another day Hamsik probably puts one of those sliced shots from the edge of the box in the bottom corner. Obviously he made up for it with the goal but in the end a draw only really suited Juve. Overall a decent performance but just didn't have enough to win.

I didn't watch the second game I only saw a few highlights but it's nice to know we can still beat Juve, even if Neto played a large part in that and that they still went through. Just the league to focus on now and hopefully 2nd place


I expected Empoli to beat Pescara and Crotone to lose against Inter, after the results though it's on now yep! I hope Crotone stay up, got a good save with them going on FM at the moment haha.

Another good result for you last night, feels like the teams that end 2nd/3rd (i.e. Roma and Napoli, whichever order) will end with a record amount of points for those positions. Juve won't be caught though unfortunately.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Classic Gennaro Gattuso in Serie B this season. He's manager of Pisa who could get relegated despite having the best defence in the entire league.


That's crazy. Empoli meanwhile have only scored 17 goals all season in Serie A yet will almost certainly stay up.

What did you make of the two Napoli v Juve games this week? I watched the one on Sunday and Napoli were really impressive. They might not have created many clear chances but it's extremely hard to do that against a defensive Juve. Then I know they got knocked out last night but it was another positive result.

Says a lot for how shit Gillingham's defence is to have scored twice as many goals and be below Oldham on goal difference.


Haha, true.

3-1 defeat at Reading tonight. Didn't expect to get anything but to get it back to 2-1 but then concede again a minute later is dire. Thankfully Bristol City (who we've still to play at home) and Forest (who we've got to play away yet) also lost, so we keep hanging on in there....
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
27 goals in 41 games for Oldham
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
A City win tomorrow - would that mean the top 4 is done and dusted? United and Arsenal don't look good enough to catch those above them.

4 wins in a row for Palace, go on Big Sam. Burnley only 5 points above the bottom 3 - please go down.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Sounds like Mata is out for the rest of the season. Best take him out of my Hotshot Jackpots....

Merseyside derby tomorrow lunchtime, should be decent.

Couldn't believe it (like the co-commentator) when the ref gave the penalty. It didn't affect the result obviously, but still.

Was desperate for a Huddersfield win (the game didn't only have an impact at the top of the table, Sky Sports), but if we keep up our decent form we should.....should being the key word.....be okay.
