He shiats when he wants, Jason Puncheon.

Palace look like they'll avoid the drop. Meanwhile, I am enjoying Tan's descent into the Championship.

That was fun. Attacking intent!

QPR loses. Derby loses.

Farkers, please welcome Leicester City to the 2014-15 EPL

Three ex-United lads in the Leicester squad.
 
2014-04-05 12:05:26 PM
That was a second win against a top nine team this season :-)
 
2014-04-05 12:07:12 PM
Well, we now know at least one of the new teams in the Premier League will be Leicester.
 
2014-04-05 12:11:33 PM
We look good on the ball but we just can't put the ball in the back of the net and let in sloppy goals.

One more win and we might be safe. One more.
 
2014-04-05 12:19:22 PM
I've gotten every result except for the Manchester matches wrong. My scores are normalizing it seems.

That's going to make me feel old. They were a fixture of the old first division when I was a lad.

There you go Charlie, do us a favor.

Charlie Adam must believe Chelski are Tottenham if he already hurt Schurrle.

Dammit Stoke. You took away the only positive I could've had today.

They were a fairly regular early EPL presence as well. Of course the only Leicester players I recall are Lineker & Heskey...

Chelsea's wage bill overtaken by Manchester United for first time since 2004. Bonus: last season. Before Fellaini, Mata, and Rooney's new deal. United's wage bill will go down a lot in the summer, then up a lot too. Hopefully they all have Champions League clauses.

Small-town Eibar to be punished for their success?

How To Survive A Liverpool Title Win

The Roberto Martinez effect: How the Spaniard has improved Everton in his first season at the helm. The youth bit is interesting. A Moyes myth.

Some (old) quotes from Tim Howard about the differences between the two managers.
 
2014-04-05 05:10:42 PM
Sir Alex Ferguson, May 2013: "It's a young squad, with a lot of good young players, and a lot of them are going to get better. But the big test is to win it three times in a row, as they've done before, so I hope the boys can do that"

David Moyes, March 2014:  "People are aware there is a squad that is a bit more ageing, so I think it would have been a tough season for whoever was in charge of Manchester United this year. And I actually think if Sir Alex was here this year it would be difficult for Sir Alex as well and I'm sure he would be aware of it."

689908: How To Survive A Liverpool Title Win


That made me chuckle. I especially liked this comment:  I also really, really don't think we can say we knocked united off their perch. It's more like United went "ooh, look. I wonder what those spikey things are all the way down their, let's have a closer look" and just sort of dropped off their perch. Like a bloated bored lemming.

And on the 2nd comment, who do you think was being more truthful, SAF or The Chosen One?

/I don't think it was Fergie.

I think if you're looking for an ageing, struggling squad, there's plenty there to suit your argument, and if you're looking for young players who can get better, there's plenty there to suit your argument too.

Moyes hasn't shown any interest in developing young players so far.

Fair point. I just don't know if things would be any better with the kids. This was always going to be a bit of a transition year, they've just failed to live up to reduced expectations.

The only change has been the manager and coaching staff. They'll get rid of several vastly experienced (old :-)) players in the summer, and replace them with maybe 4/5/6 first team players, which means more so-called transition next season too.

Things probably wouldn't be better this season with the kids, but there would at least be the promise of building something for the future. We could look at Powell or Zaha or Lingard or Michael Keane and say, 'Well, yeah, they're struggling, but they're young and learning and will be better next season.'

But what has actually happened is he has kept all the same players, made them all worse, blamed them, and convinced lots of people that the champions aren't good enough for his midtable tactics.

Some great MLS matches today.

Welp, I guess I'm rooting for Everton. Arsenal aren't going to keep Chelsea from the title, but Everton might save us from the Eurowasteoftime League.
 
2014-04-06 08:36:03 AM
Okay, goddamn farking annoying goddamn alarm, I'm up already. SHUT THE HELL UP

Trying to mainline coffee. Let's do this.
 
2014-04-06 08:42:43 AM
Everton is working their asses off. If Arsenal concedes the first goal, it would be very difficult for them to come back. They have to get on the front foot.
 
2014-04-06 08:44:59 AM
Motherf*cker. Poor defense kills us yet again. Utter shambles.

I just woke up and Everton lead. Sorry Gunner fans, apparently I'm Martinez's good-luck charm.

Arsenal fans: if Arsenal get bumped from the CL by Everton, is Wenger done?

Maybe. If he somehow gets bumped from the FA Cup though, he's almost surely gone.
 
2014-04-06 08:51:59 AM
I think what hurts the most is how good Arsenal looked at the beginning of this season. They looked crisp and sharp, good offensive movement and great defensive shape. The last 10 games--even games they've won--they look like a Sunday park team scrambling around. It's baffling to see this team and think it's the same team that produced one of the best goals of the season against Norwich just a few months ago.

I don't think the club will ever really fire him, but I think he'll resign if they loose CL

Well, you've lost Ramsey, Wilshere and Walcott for long stretches of the season, while Ozil's form cooled.

Norfolking Chance: We look good on the ball but we just can't put the ball in the back of the net and let in sloppy goals.

Next week is huge for both of us, especially with your brutal last 4 matches afterwards. I wish you luck, I would hate to stay up at Norwichs expense, but it would be better than the alternative.

czetie: Arsenal fans: if Arsenal get bumped from the CL by Everton, is Wenger done?


I don't see the Board sacking him, but what I don't really know is where his head is at. Arsenal is in a great position in a lot of ways: decent youth program, stadium debt under control, still quite a few quality players. The question is how Wenger wants to go out. I don't see him leaving after a season of failure (and fifth place is not what most coaches would consider failure). Like any coach, I think he wants to go out on top. I think he'd only leave if he honestly felt he couldn't do it--I don't think he's in that frame of mind yet.

Princip's Sandwich: Maybe. If he somehow gets bumped from the FA Cup though, he's almost surely gone.


It would make the normal anti-Wenger crowd louder than ever and would put a whole lot of extra pressure on Wenger. It depends on how the season ends, though. I think dropping out of the top four would be a bigger deal than choking out of the FA Cup. But if both happen--I think he might decide to leave if both happen simultaneously this season.
 
2014-04-06 09:04:35 AM
Game over.
 
2014-04-06 09:04:36 AM
Faaaaaark

Its like Arsenal aren't even trying to defend
