I'm still stunned that Arsenal beat Liverpool and Man City inside of a few days and with good defensive performances.

Watford sacking Pearson is just crazy. You'd think they would be desperate to make sure they kept him. When he took over in December they had won 1 out of 15 games and were bottom of the premier league. They have won 7 out of 20 since he took over. Even if they get relegated he would have been the perfect man to get them back up.

Agreed.

The even weirder/stupider thing is they are 3 points clear of relegation right now. And one team has Arsenal and one team has to win by 4 goals to overhaul with their final game, away to Everton. Why on earth would you do it with 2 games to go?

Last day of the Championship should be a wheeze.

Auto promotion - any 1 of 3 teams (West Brom, Brentford or Fulham) to join Leeds and go up

Playoff - any 2 of 3 teams (Forest, Cardiff or Swansea) to fill 5th and 6th spot; imagine if Swans pipped the Bluebirds (1-0 loss for Cardiff, and 1-0 win for Swansea would do it)

Relegation - nobody yet officially relegated but Hull 99.9% certain due to GD, and Huddersfield 99.9% certain due to stay up for the same reason; but as it stands 3 from 7 to face the drop (Huddersfield, Middlesbrough, Birmingham, Charlton, Luton, Barnsley, Hull) - confess to not looking or calculating if any of those teams are playing each other.

Well sacking Pearson proved to be a great move. Watford lost 0-4 to Man City and will Villa currently leading 1-0 against Arsenal Watford are in the relegation zone by one goal on goal difference.

If the stats don't have the Watford players working a lot harder in that game than in other games since lockdown you really wonder what was the point.

Bear in mind relegation won't be confirmed until August due to points deductions to Wigan, Derby, and Sheffield Wednesday and the subsequent appeals.

Oh really. I just follow the Bluebirds and keep in touch with another fan in DC and then again Chicago. We text each other after the result. I was completely unaware. Just adds to the drama. Teams just have to do their jobs.

Take a bow Nottingham Forest. What a way to play yourself out of the playoffs. And congrats to Swansea for coming back from the dead. Swansea-Cardiff playoff final anyone?

If Chelsea sorted out their centre halves and goalie they will challenge for the title next year. They're going to have a very strong attack

Yeah I was staggered to see thousands(?) of fans out celebrating with the team on the streets. If I was a Liverpool fan I think I'd be miffed considering their fans were given a dispersal order.

Ireland rugby shirt and yes I got IRA this IRA that.

We're all guilty by association once the English put on a football shirt. Well that's when they get the confidence to shout it

He’s just a small time paid for bot, not in the same league as the laundering at Chealski.

Was going to ask how the f#ck they continue to spank the money they do under FFP rules - sweet f#cking commercial deals unattainable by others, clearly... :roll:

They almost earn as much from sales as they spend. Their net spend is actually very low.

For some reason most top clubs seem to offload players for dirt cheap while Chelsea get more than they're probably worth. Maybe their financial backing let's them play hard ball more than other clubs which are run as a business.

Chelsea have a massive amount of players out on loan, they earn loads by selling players who have never even played for the club.

Yeah i was just looking through the list of sales and saw they got 30 million for Lukaku. I'd forgotten he was ever a Chelsea player.

Alice in the Birmingham City FC marketing department must’ve read Guerilla Marketing over lockdown and decided to think outside the box on that decision.

Tbf who the f**k wants to wear number 22 anyway? Might be more of an issue if had have been 1-11.

That is hilarious :lol:

Retiring numbers is a yank thing anyway but doing it for a kid who only ever played a handful of games. Bizarre.

There was a dispersal order round Elland Road. The council, the police advisory group and the club agreed that putting the players outside for 10 minutes and then going inside might encourage the crowd to go home.
