Maybe. They're not in any danger of relegation and probably don't want to risk injuries before their FA Cup final.

Crystal Palace have been giant-slayers the past 2 months. Are they the new Wigan?

With the sanctions coming down on PSG and City, does anyone else feel like FFP is just a way for the established elite clubs (Real, Barca, Man United, Bayern) to maintain the status quo they have enjoyed? If UEFA really wanted to do something to bring more competition into the game, they should work with the national FAs to put hard salary and transfer fee caps in place.

No kidding. That was a pretty remarkable comeback. Against Liverpool it was nearly unbelievable. You must have partied when you saw that comeback.

Sunderland has the magic dust at the moment. They've been unreal.

I would say that you are far from alone in worrying that it locks in the status quo.

On the other hand, something has to be done about things like PSG's "backdated sponsorship" deal, whatever that is supposed to mean. Personally I'd like to see salary caps based on the registered squad, maybe even allow teams to have more players registered if the salaries are lower.

United are winning again, so does that mean the "make Giggs permanent manager" bandwagon is back on? Because I want to get behind that notion. I think United stand a much better chance next season with someone like Giggs who understands the United way. Van Gaal, Klopp, Simeone, Ancellotti, or Guardiola just don't know what it means to be United and have no place at the club.

As a Man City fan I have come to understand in my short time following them, they will never win the Champions League. Every year i watch and every year they get a draw from hell. But that is fine, just be in the hunt for EPL each year and try for FA Cup and i'm good to go.

Pfft, damned Premier League fancy dans. I'd love a Champion's League draw from hell for my team. Instead, I once again have to hope they climb out of:

Giggs or Gary Neville would make more sense as the new manager if you want to keep "The United Way." But if you feel things need a massive makeover, then you go outside to some of the other names you mentioned. I don't know enough about MU's depth beyond the current PL roster to say what I'd prefer as a MU hater.

I'd like them to hire the guy Everton had before Martinez. I hear he's something of a football genius, so it should work out for them.

I hope not. Giggs doesn't have enough managerial experience at this stage.

More importantly, I worry that he doesn't realize how much the other veterans have aged because they have all aged alongside him, day by day. See for instance his recent comments that the team doesn't need much of an overhaul.

So I would far rather see somebody come in with no attachment to the current team, overhaul, and then pass the reins to Giggs.

This game has what the BBC used to describe as an end-of-term feeling.

LOL Wilson jogged for that whole thing. He was just so casual about it. "Oh, hello ball" *boot*
 
2014-05-06 04:06:45 PM  
Damnit, my one chance at a perfect ruined....thanks United.
 
2014-05-06 04:07:18 PM  
I though Januzaj had blown it when he played that pass to Fellatio instead of Wilson, but it worked out in the end.

If Fellatio fell out of a boat, he'd miss the water.
 
2014-05-06 04:07:35 PM  
Woo, seeing new blood play and new blood score!  Boo seeing Hull score after poor defending and goal keeping.

This. He has looked lost most of the season, but tonight he has looked exceptionally useless.

And even as I type that, he blocks Buttner's goalbound shot.

You can reasonably argue whether its entirely his fault or whether he has been used poorly, but realistically he has added little or nothing to Utd.

Swansea, thirteen on the table, has a goal differential -3 worse than Tottenham and have 27 fewer points.  Their goal differential of -3 is the best of all teams behind eighth place Southampton. Interesting season, to say the least.

Swansea have had some big wins, like 3-0 against Norwich, while their losses have been rather small. Tottenham win small and lose big.

Which is more frustrating as a true fan of English football?  As an American, I don't have the investment that the true fans have (in terms of soccer).  As a fan of American sports, I'd go with the small wins as long they out number the losses (no matter the size).

I've just gotten into watching English football this season, mostly out of seeing how entertaining last season's Fark threads were.

Having watched mostly Spanish football before that, I prefer Swansea since they always try to play their style, no matter who the opponent is. Even when things go south, they still try to keep at it. Then you have this year's Tottenham, who struggle almost every single week and look lost half the time.

Obviously, this was the 1st year of the new TV deals for the PL; both in the UK and overseas. That TV money goes to the teams and is divided up based on where the teams finish in the table.

Last year, Man Utd received 60.8 million pounds for winning the title.

This year, the very bottom team will receive 63 million while the champs will receive 95 million.
