    I dont see it this year, although it makes the most sense for them as Mourinho will be available and is keen to return to England.

    Their squad needs some overhauling. Not sure Fergie will give it up in the shape its in.


    What was that ;)

    Edit:

    As for Arsenal their "ten years and you've won f*ck all" have mostly been because they pay away the new stadium, hence it is a high priority to get the lucrative CL spot. I dont see them giving away any points anymore this season.

    For Chelsea the retirement of Sir Red nose is not all good. Might mean more competition for Mourinho, who has hinted on going to ManU already..

    Edit 2:

    After hearing of the announcement that Sir Alex Ferguson is to retire at the end of the season, Manchester United players have paid their respects to their manager.

    "It has been an honour to play for Sir Alex. I couldn't have asked for a better manager" said Howard Webb.

    -

    In Honour of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement all Premiership matches will play an extra 2 minutes injury time the next time they play.

    The rumours here are that an agreement was reached earlier in the week with Malaga's mabager Pellegrini.

    It'll be interesting now to see if Wigan can stay up. Playing in Europe and the championship would be even tougher than Europe and the Premier League, I think, seeing as they already play twice a week in the Championship.

    Does the FA cup winner get a Europa league place? I thought it was only the league cup winner. Even still, don't they have to get past the pre-qualifiers? Doubt they would, but you never know.

    Still, always good to see an underdog win a cup. Like when Birmingham beat Arsenal in the league cup final a few years ago.

    even better today. All three goals a lovely bit of skill....

    We need to discuss Coutinho. the kid is absolutely ridiculous in finding that penetrating pass. Wasnt perfect yesterday, but even on days when he's not controlling play, tucked underneath Sturridge, Suarez and (insert player here: Downing, Assaidi, Sterling, Borini, new guy) his ability to spot a through ball is fantastic

    I've been saying it since we got him. He's going to be a megastar. He's the kind of guy that just makes things happen, and he's only going to get better. We got him for a steal at I think 8mil. If Hendo keeps improving, he'll take over from Stevie. Hopefully Sterling can find his form agian next season and take his spot back with the front three. Sturridge, Suarez, Sterling up front, Hendo, Coutinho and Downing/Assaidi/new guy as the central 3, and hopefully a bolstered defnese, and that's a frist XI any team would be proud of. Sturridge has been another great buy. I'm VERY pleased with Rodgers so far, and things should only improve next year.

  • Love to see you coming around to Henderson peaches. Hes made another brilliant ball from the deep position yesterday to spring Sturridge. Flew three against Everton to gash them, handful more in the past few weeks. Hes defending well (not quite Lucas) but his passing out of the deep areas sets him apart. I think your central three is Coutinho with Gerrard and Henderson behind. Sterling and Suso (and Allen and Shelvey) will be mainstays on the team next season, but we will need another wide player of talent to challenge top 4. Borini maybe, but i'd like to see some pace and trickery. Would love Julian Draxlar. but there are a handful of wide talents in the Bundesliga.

    Wisdom looked a revelation yesterday as a CB in a flat 3 system. Could be ready to replace Carragher

    Yep completely unsurprised. Anyone think if Arsenal lose to Wigan tomorrow night that Wenger might get the axe? I hope not, but it seems like 8 seasons without trophies might be a bit too much for the board to take at this point, and with no CL football to attract good players, Arsenal might find it tough for a while. They might think fresh blood and a new attitude could turn things around.

    I gotta say though, AVB has impressed me this season. Granted, he's had Bale on blistering form for most of the season, but still, a big turnaround from his days at Chelsea.

  • Wigan have joined QPR and Reading as the 3 relegation doomed clubs as Arsenal exploded in the second half, scoring 3 goals in 8 minutes en route to a 4-1 win that brings Arsenal back up to 4th and leads to an intriguing final day in which Arsenal can finish 3rd 4th or 5th depending on the results of theirs and Chelsea and Spurs matches. As for the other 2 clubs, Chelsea must win to guarantee 3rd place for them and Spurs need to win and Arsenal to lose to finish 4th as a Spurs draw vs Sunderland would do them nothing.

    As for Wigan, I do feel hard done that we had to be the ones to end Wigan's EPL run, but it had to be done in order for Arsenal to maintain control of their European fate. I do hope Wigan do return to the EPL in 2014-15 season as they are a good club and among the English clubs I don't hate, nor would have a reason to.

    Almost perfect except that Podolski had a brace and not Walcott. I should have placed a bet on this game.

  • Didn't see the majority of the Arsenal match due to freaking work but heard they weren't very convincing. Which seems to be implanted with Arsenal everytime they win 1-0, but everyone else gets a free pass and a "gutsy and strong performance" comment. But who cares, Arsenal will be in the CL for the 16th consecutive season and Spurs might have just seen the last of Gareth Bale because of it.

    There is one guy at my local pub for my entire hatred of Gareth Bale FC (spurs) When both LFC and Spurs happen to be on, and his game is boring one way or the other, he will come give you crap for no real reason without reason. What an F head.

  • Okay I suppose now is as good a time as any for everyone to give their final thoughts and reviews of their clubs seasons and probably even give out a Final Grade for their clubs. And if you want give out your grades for other clubs, go right ahead, no one's stopping you.

  • Liverpool did exactly what I thought they would do this year. Finish 6-10 in the league, gut the squad and implement a new mentality. Ended the season relatively strongly. Lost some matches we should have won, won some matches we should have lost, and had a lot of draws. Rodgers improved the attacking/goalscoring immensely, but we were let down by shoddy defense all too often. We brought in some fantastic players in Sturridge and Coutinho, tried out some young lads in Suso, Wisdom and Sterling, all of which look promising. Henderson has improved, which is good.

    All in all, I'd give Liverpool a solid C+. a little better than expected, the Suarez biting incident of course is a black mark on the season, but there it is.

  • West Brom - B-

    Happy to finish 8th, about where we should be - right behind the "big 7" teams. Season started off great, but figured it would level off. Grade is lowered because we seemed to be on cruise control towards the end of the season. Would have liked to finish with at least 50 points - I know we finished only 1 point shy of that but still disappointed.

    Amazing season from Romelu Lukaku including his hat trick yesterday. No way Chelsea lets him come back.

    Highlights were probably the away win at Liverpool, and the first and last matches of the season at home with the 3-0 win over Liverpool and the incredible comeback 5-5 draw vs. Man Utd.

    Worst match was just last week losing 4-0 at Norwich.

    Our black mark of the season was the Odemwingie fiasco. Shame because he's my favorite player - met him a couple of years ago, and he was a really nice guy. Unfortunately, don't think he'll be back.

  • I decided to follow QPR when the season started. They get an F------. The whole season sucked.

    Curious, how did QPR become your team?

    Dunno, something about them struck my fancy when I read stories about them when they were promoted to the PL after the 10-11 season. I knew they weren't that good but I'm a sucker for the underdog story.

  • Respect.

    Kolo Toure looks like he is on his way to Liverpool on a free transfer according to multiple reports. Gotta say I like the move. Guy leaving a comfy seat, a huge weekly paycheck, and some champions league football prestige to go to a team on the rise and become a part of something special.

    Agree. He's getting on a bit, but will fill the Carragher role of being a veteran leader and a very competant defender. Landing him on a free is a great move.

  • Tony Pulis has decided to quit Stoke City. This means that Alan Pardew has now become the second longest serving EPL manager at 2 years, 163 days. After him comes Sam Allardyce, Martin Jol and Brendan Rodgers.
