Fuck Kyiv and UEFA, what an absolute shit place to have a final.

That being said, plane to Poland & 20 hour coach booked, couldn't say no!


Enjoy! As you say, gotta be done.

City first team to get 100 points in top division history.....fair play!

Swansea down without a fight, Chelsea's capitulation wasn't that surprising but well done to Newcastle.........and Salah breaks the record for most goals in a 38 game PL season.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Our technical deficiencies going forward may have limited our quality of football at times, but by heck that defending over the last two games has been incredible. Strangely, we were never really tested by Manchester City but last night it was proper bodies on the line, last-ditch, do-or-die stuff. The scramble that led to Lössl's save would have been a goal against any other side, but this isn't any other side. It's an incredible side, of character and desire and heart. Of never giving up, of no limits. What a team. What a season.

Also, Carlos Carvalhal will be sick of us on Wednesday nights in May. Last season we kept him down, this season we've sent the poor sod down. Kinda feel sorry for the bloke.


Congrats, delighted you've stayed up. You deserve it too, two excellent displays in the last few days. I know it doesn't mean quite as much now but you must fancy your chances on Sunday too, looking at Arsenal's dreadful away form.

It wasn't long ago Swansea were about 14th and looked safe. They've really gone off the boil last few weeks and look pretty toothless going forward. Carvalhal is leaving at the end of the season, it's been announced today.



http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Southampton pretty much safe, delighted for Hughesy.

Swansea are seriously struggling for goals. Stoke are dire but I wouldn't even be that confident backing Swansea to beat them at home. I expect Huddersfield will get beat at Chelsea but wouldn't be surprised if they get a point or something v Arsenal. Gonna be interesting!
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Kane has been a special sort of shite after returning from injury


Bodes well for the World Cup....

Last gasp equaliser for Everton v Southampton. Huge game on Tuesday, Swansea v Southampton.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
That might be that with our last few games. Just to not be bottom is an achievement to be fair, considering the quality in our squad. Not that I'd write us off with our habit of pulling together for one final push - beat Arsenal on the last day and we will survive, which would be a frankly astonishing achievement considering the low base we started from when compared to everyone else in the division. But to do that we need more quality on the wings in particular. Not Quaner's fault he isn't very good, but our injury problems mean we have to play him if we're going 4-2-3-1 (personally, I'd chuck Billing in from the start and push Pritchard wider in more of a 4-3-3).

Still, if we go down, we go down. I don't want to say I'm not fussed, but it's one of those where, as disappointed as I'd be, I'd also appreciate just how much we've achieved this season. We'd be in a great position to build, even if we lost Wagner, and I think we'll have plans for whatever division we're in. We're keeping Lössl and Hadergjonaj (one of the achievements of the fans this season has been getting his name into a coherent song), even if we lost players we'd have a massive war chest to rebuild again. The Championship is one hell of a league, mind you, and if this is goodbye then at least we're taking some incredible memories with us - particularly the day we outfought, outplayed and quite deservedly beat Manchester United.


You might not get another point (although Arsenal's away record is dreadful, so you could get something against them) but who knows, that might be enough. If Southampton don't win at Swansea I doubt they'd catch you? Everton away and City at home their other games.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
It's a daunting task though with Atletico's recent defensive record at home, something like 7-8 games without conceding at home


11 I think it is

Gonna be tough for Arsenal second leg but you never know. Would be good for Wenger to win a trophy in his final game as Arsenal manager.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
So unlucky for Oxlade-Chamberlain missing a World Cup and in all likelihood a Champions League final. Hopefully he still gets the chance to play in both in the future.

Happy Roma got the two late goals to keep the tie just about alive but before then it was an absolute nightmare, the high line was a disaster. Worked against Barca but they can't get in behind like Liverpool and it's odd Di Francesco didn't know that or at least didn't change it at HT.

http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
And did us a favour in the process, Peterborough basically out of the running for a playoff place now.


Yep, wouldn't be surprised if a team like Plymouth go up via the playoffs, if you can get in there. Shrewsbury are out of form, Rotherham have been hit and miss, it's anyone's game.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
We're going up (almost certainly)
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Well done Newcastle, looking like a great end to the season for you.

Can't believe Arsenal have only won 3 away games all season that is dreadful.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Bottom three starting to get cut adrift now. Southampton have improved under Hughesy - mainly going forward - but you can't be throwing away a two goal lead.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
My Uncle is a season ticket holder at Liverpool but doubt there'll be any tickets going spare on such an occasion forza Roma!
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
ROMA! still in complete shock.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
This genuinely might be the first time I've felt confident enough to say we'll be staying up.

Not that I can boast that quickly, given we're not over the line just yet, but I think the ball's in our court to wrap this up.


You should be absolutely fine now. Stoke, Southampton and Huddersfield are struggling, two from those three I'd say. I know Palace are only two points above the drop zone but they should be fine..
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
So...Jamie Carragher....
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Agreed, it's Juve's now.

I had hoped this would be the year that they didn't win it, but always had that feeling that they'd prevail. They've still got Napoli to play at home yet too.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
For a club who is known as a great spotter of talent why the hell haven't Southampton solved their striker problem in the summer, every season they seem to buy a striker in January and hope he hits the ground running, they got lucky last year with Gabbiadini but its well and truly backfired this year


Aye, they really are awful and dire to watch too. Somehow they're not in the relegation zone (5 wins all season!) but their upcoming fixtures look tough so they could well be soon.

Still fancy Palace to get out of it. I thought they were virtually safe not long ago but there seems to be some life in them at least which is more you can say for Southampton.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Mystery how we didn't win. Credit to Swansea - sitting ten back and keeping shape and not allowing an inch of space in the danger zone takes discipline and concentration. And when we did manage to get through them, Fabianski was in fine form. Some save from Mounié's thunderbastard of a volley.

As for the Ayew challenge - lucky he didn't break Hogg's leg. I've seen it again and it's an absolute shocker. Loses the ball, goes chasing, jumps in and goes studs-first into Hogg's knee. Quite how Carvalhal thinks it's appealable is beyond me. It's a terrible tackle.


30 shots to 0 was it? Crazy stuff.

Two extra points today would have been most welcome for you but you must be pleased that there's at least three teams looking worse than you right now......definitely West Brom, West Ham and Southampton, and even Stoke, while steadying the ship a bit, aren't picking up any wins.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
The absolute state of West Ham.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Sevilla 0-0 Utd. Should have seen that coming really.....

Disappointing for Roma to lose after leading at HT, not a surprise though unfortunately.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Was surprised by Juve's approach and how poor they were on Tuesday. After going 2-0 up they could barely string two passes together, for the rest of the first half especially. And yet they had the chance to go 3-1 up right on HT....

I had Juve down as favourites as I thought they'd just have a bit too much know-how for Spurs, but after watching that on Tuesday - and the score obviously - I'm expecting Spurs to go through to be honest.

Aye bmg033, don't know how Neymar didn't get sent off, how could the ref blow for a dive and not book him....bottled it as you say. 3-1 up, Madrid should have few problems going through now.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
3-0 Chelsea it finished, West Brom starting to be cut adrift a bit....3 wins all season, 2 of which were in August, is unbelievably bad.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
If Conte leaves the cycle will just start again....new manager, success, crisis, sacked, new manager, etc.

I would say this needs to change, but despite all the managers they've got through they've still won a lot of trophies..
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Christ Chelsea are bad at the moment.

Spurs were completely dominant against United. Fellaini got subbed a few minutes after he came on, not sure if he was injured.....

Still as tight as ever in the bottom half, mainly because they all seem to draw with each other and generally seem incapable of winning.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Arsenal, oh dear 1 point out of WBA, Bournemouth and Swansea away from home is it in the last few weeks? That's dire.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Apparently he turned down Newcastle to move there.

Figures.


Didn't know that. He'd have been good for you.

Think you'll be able to stay up if you don't sign anyone else? Could you see Rafa walking out?
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Sturridge has gone to West Brom on loan. Surprising one, but he should do well.
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Swansea 1-0 up v Liverpool, about 25 mins left. Surely they can't beat City one week and lose to Swansea the next....
http://i45.tinypic.com/35jcvmr.png
Big game for us at home to Shrewsbury tomorrow (that's something I never thought I'd write). Win and we're 2 points behind them in 2nd. Lose and it's 8
