Finally another perfect banker. I needed that.
 
2014-04-06 12:54:26 PM  
ugly, but 3 points. these are the wins that earn you the title
 
2014-04-06 12:54:47 PM  
We didn't deserve to win that. The ref deserves to be sent down to Conference matches
 
2014-04-06 12:56:21 PM  
It's finally over...and that ref is probably going to get a horrid performance review for this match.

Wait a second. I had it 3-1 apparently. Goddammit. Only a +20...

That makes three of us at least.

Classy Manager Check:

Sam Allardyce
: "It looked like Andy Carroll fouled the goalkeeper for our goal but we got it. We don't want that, nobody wants that."

Brendan Rodgers: "The second penalty was a penalty. Jon Flanagan touches it past the keeper, the keeper gets a slight touch on it but he then brings down Jon."

Winner: Big Sam

At the beginning of the season, did anybody have Liverpool and Everton in the Champions League with Liverpool winning the league?

midpoint: Langston: SomebodyElsesShoes: Arsenal have too much quality to say that.  Amazing how different this is from a few weeks ago.

The quality exists. But the mental toughness has evaporated.

So it never existed? How this team could use Viera in his pomp.

Meta-game for the afternoon. Which player from the past would you bring back to improve the current team?

For NUFC, a Peter Beardsley is my all time favourite player, but it is difficult to look past a healthy/fit Alan Shearer in respect of shouting, slapping and scoring.


That's a toughy. For the MIGHTY Oxford United, I'd probably go with John Aldridge or Malcolm Shotton, even though Joey Beauchamp is my favorite player

No team has ever come from outside the Top 5 to win the league the following season.

At least I think I heard that somewhere.

So, there's no way anyone sane (or sober) could have predicted Liverpool winning the league.

Lord Jubjub: At the beginning of the season, did anybody have Liverpool and Everton in the Champions League with Liverpool winning the league?


No one did. A lot of people didn't even have Liverpool in the top 4. I was hoping that Liverpool would pull off a 4th place finish, and maybe Everton in 6th, but I had no idea that we would be this close with only 5 to go. Our next 2 wins guarantees CL qualification, if I'm doing my math right.

You misheard slightly. No team outside of the top 3 in the previous season has won the league in the current season.

Also, according to ESPN's table, the PL has an extra EL qualifying spot?

Man City won the League Cup so the Europa League spot for that trophy should revert to whoever gets 6th in the EPL since City will go to the UCL. At least that's how I think it works.

Also, with the Liverpool win, Manchester United is officially eliminated from title contention.

Norwich's Hughton has been sacked. Neil Adams is the interim manager.

It's a risk, but I think it's a necessary risk. They just weren't going anywhere good with Hughton in charge.

This is not good. The time to get rid of Hughton was at the end of last season, not now. Teams that replace managers this close to the end almost always get relagated.

4 of their last 5 are against the Old Big Four, with aways at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge. Not even Sir Alex would've got them more than 4 points from that lot.

Second harsh dismissal for Hughton. Game against Fulham crucial in determining the fate of the two clubs?

Seems that way. We have winnable fixtures heading in, with the exception of Tottenham away, but we'll need to play our absolute best to make it out.
 
2014-04-06 05:01:10 PM  
Norwich know they're in a relegation battle, they know Hughton's a cautious manager, they know their last four games are against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, but they wait until now to fire him? Doesn't make much sense to me. Either stick with him or give the new guy 10 or 15 games.

FTFY. LFC and CFC still have to play each other, so one was guaranteed at least 73 points.

You know, it is kind of funny to go back to our opening day match thread just to see how completely farking wrong we were about everything that was going to happen this season.

Yep, he was good enough to take us this far so that makes him good enough to take us to the end of the season. If he wasn't good enough then we should of given Neil Adams at least five games that were winable.

depending on what everton does with their match in hand, 'pool's magic number is five for arsenal and seven (worst case scenario) for everton, meaning any combination of earned points by liverpool and/or lost points by arsenal or everton.

this assumes that the tremendous gd liverpool enjoy would still be intact, which i think is a safe assumption at this stage.

don't look now, but utd just might nick a europa spot. good on them.

I think most people would have penciled Utd in for a top four finish at worst, so yeah.

Oh god, please no. I'm counting on Spurs to win their game in hand against Sunderland later today.
 
2014-04-07 07:58:35 AM  
Dave's latest pearls of wisdom. I really do hope some United fan somewhere is collecting all of these.

On United's good away form: "Maybe there's a big expectation at Old Trafford to go and be a bit gung-ho and play in a real attacking style,"

Maybe you're at the wrong club. Just a thought.

On Fellaini: "Some of the stuff he has done with the ball on his chest has been great. I can see bits where the supporters probably want more than that."

ADubs86: Seeing how wrong 95% of these were is funny as hell too......


1) That top 6 looks fairly sensible :-)

2) Louise Taylor is mental.

I just checked the PL table and noticed that Tottenham and Swansea both have -4 goal difference. THFC have 56 points and SCFC have 33. I'm not sure what to make of that. Swansea are unlucky? If Tottenham are going to lose a match, they'd prefer to do it spectacularily?

The way he went down, I would've been a shock if it wasn't an ACL tear. That sucks for him, Southampton and the England national team.

They just mentioned on NBCSN that if Man City finishes in the top 5, 6th place goes to Europa in the League Cup spot so that is confirmed.

No Altidore today? He's playing with the U-21 team? WTF!?

Mostly Tottenham's spectacular losses. Both teams have been playing in the Europa League, but Swansea has the smaller squad.
