Not a bad year for English football after the WC semi final last year.

2nd v 4th Champion's League and 3rd v 5th Europa League.

Arsenal were gash for such large parts of the season.


I think a few weeks ago we had the 2nd best home record, 1 point less than City. The issue is Arsenal are horrific away from home. And of course prone to defensive blunders. Sort the defence and get the away record better and Arsenal can easily be in the top 4.

Yeah, I was hoping that Emery would do better and feel that he has let 4th slip from his fingers. though if he can win the Europa Cup then he's got what Arsenal need. Still feels like there is some dead weight at Arsenal Ozil for example.


Arsenal tried to offload Ozil in January and Ozil refused to sign. He's just taking the piss really.

It's a pity because he should be such a good player. Aubameyang has been good though. Still tired of looking at Arsenal match stats and constantly seeing something like:

Arsenal:
Possession: 70%
Shots on goal: 3
Shots on Target: 1

Opponents:
Possession: 30%
Shots on Goal: 6
Shots on Target: 4

Just got up and, as usual for a Spurs fan, the first noise is a load "Phew"

What a crazy season for City and Pool - no doubt this has been posted but this was the difference between the two sides - congrats to both of them for keeping it interesting

As a United fan I'm obviously relieved Liverpool didn't win the league but only because you're two leagues behind us and City have a long way to catch both of us.

In terms of teams I dislike, I dislike this City side way more than Klopps Liverpool. I just don't like Pep.

I didn't and don't ever want City to get a European Cup and don't want Liverpool to win the league. Both happened and somewhat softened a dreadful season for the team I support


I actually don't see what's to dislike about this city side. Players all seem decent and Pep seems a great manager who isn't an arsehole


It all goes back to that Barca side. Just cant stand Pep

That and he and Mourinho take over clubs with lots of money to do as they wish and are touted as the best.

If you lose just once all season and STILL don't win the league then it's pretty clear they'll never do it :(

Incredible points tally but despite getting 97 points, you can appreciate the fairness of coming second when you only took 1 point against the champions over two games.

Nah. They just need to get more points than any other team

Just watching the trophy presentation.

Thirty-something coaches and backroom staff. :shock:

Be interesting to see a list of who does what.

As an outside observer it is interesting to see the passion from neutrals. I wonder if it is the bigger competition size and so many smaller teams whose best hope is to be middle of the road that leads to more enjoyment in another teams' wins or losses.

Bolton Wanderers have gone into administration. Apparently to stop liquidation.

12 point deduction next season, plus the issues surrounding their missing a match in the last couple of weeks.

Bad business.

What's happened to Bolton since Big Sam left is a bit mad, I know there are deeper issues with the ownership, taxes et al, but it all seemed rosy when they were getting into Europe.

Don't think so - it's the tribal nature of sport in this country.

Reece James and Mount have been fantastic in the Championship this season, Chelsea should use them next season but I anticipate them doing something stupid like sell Mount in order to facilitate the signing of Kovacic.

6-0 equals the biggest margin in an FA Cup final (also 6-0 when Bury beat Derby County in 1903).

Wiki also says that the first FA Cup final at Wembley in 1923 had an official crowd of 126,047 but estimates say it could have been up to 300,000!

Not bitter, but severely worried about it becoming permanently a one team league.

:uhoh:

What a depressing watch that was today. Disgusting that 6-0 can occur and the difference is between 1st and essentially around 7th in the same league. Not good at all.

Correct - there's being financially stronger allied with a great homegrown youth, like United and Barcelona did... but this is ridiculous. Financial doping on a very bad scale. It's not a competitive league if this is what's to come.

"Essentially around 7th"

or 11th, as it's actually known.

Don’t think this is a new phenomenon.
Excluding Utd’s Class of 92’s triumphs, and Blackburn in 95, has there been a league winning team that hasn’t been built around bought-in foreigners?
Chelsea and Citeh bought their seats at the top table, as have Liverpool to a lesser extent given they have 1 or 2 academy products and a few bought-in English players and a whole host of mercenaries.
It just the way of the sport at the highest level these days, totally devoid of a soul.
