First FA Cup Final I've seen in 3 years and I thought it was a good view. Chelsea really did look oddly off colour.
He's put out a statement effectively confirming his retirement. For the right manager, Palace do seem like a decent opportunity. Yet they never seem to find anyone able to do anything for more than a couple of months then who finds a way to let them...
I saw it mentioned Forest scored 7 in an away game in the 90s. Which I Googled - a 7-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday in 1995.
Fucking hell the final day was goal crazy. Quite brilliant in a way.
Wonder how different it would've been if the ref had penalised that foul by Lovren on Bamford, which he should've done tbh.
No wonder Watford are getting rid of Mazzarri if dross like this has been their regular fare of late.
Huddersfield Town one win from the Premier League. And to think a fair few pundits said they'd be lucky to stay in the Championship in pre-season. Still, would be quite something to see them in the top flight.
So a Chinese bookies that used to sponsor Burnley are the new shirt sponsors... not sure that's a big improvement on Wonga tbh. But then over half the league has a bookmaker as a shirt sponsor by now, even moreso with Everton gaining one too.
Wow that Ayew double miss was brilliant. How the fuck did he miss?
Yeah - Phelan didn't do that badly given what he had to work with in terms of the boardroom inertia up there, but that situation and the lateness of Bruce's forced departure meant Hull were always facing a slog of a season. And yeah, Silva did...
Silva would probably have kept Hull up had he been there for the whole season, but that summer of nothing, their poor first half to the season and consistently shit away form means nowhere else to go I guess. 2 of the bottom 3 I'm not really surpris...
Some NUFC fans flew a banner with "United By Cancer, Divided By Leagues" over the Sunderland game... I mean, its one thing that banter can embrace coarse humour or bad taste, but this feels like its way too far.
Were Forest not similarly ready to bleat about winning the Champions League/European Cup?
They've had a weird season, Man U. Long unbeaten run that was north of 25 games in the PL, mainly cohesive style, most of their new signings have looked good, could well end up winning the Europa League, and yet they've been oddly shit at gettin...
Never in doubt we'd pull it off To be fair its a huge slap in the face for Brighton in the way they lost it, but they seem to have taken their foot off the gas since winning promotion. It sucks for them but its the way it is, and at least, like us,...
And if it wasn't before Assombalonga made it 3, it definitely is too far for Ipswich now.
It looks like Blackburn's biggest hopes now is on Bristol rather than on Ipswich.
Gotta love Portsmouth being champions after only leading League Two for the final half an hour of the season. Better than when Bristol Rovers were relegated to the Conference after only spending a similar time in the bottom two all season I guess.
If Chelsea fail to win the league from here, it might will be the choke of a lifetime.
Its completely fucking dumb, but the Football League seem so good at doing stupid shit just to make it look like they're doing something.
