It overwhelmingly favours the big teams


Yeah, that's my problem with this. Sure it could solve one problem, but I so easily see it making an already existing problem even worse. With a whole mass of B teams making their way up to League One, it's eventually going to make the economic gap between the teams in the Premier League and the Championship and the teams in League Two even worse.

So Manchester City are champions again, and congratulations to them.

I know most people here would disagree, but I would have liked to have seen Liverpool win it, just for the novelty of seeing a new team win the Premier League title.

What makes it even sweeter is that Gerrard slipping is what cost Liverpool the league.

Diego Costa is heading to Chelsea next season for 32m. Confirmed via his twitter. So hey finally got the striker they needed...wonder if he'll be a Negredo or Soldado. Plus he's one of the dirtiest, violent players I've ever seen....think Drovba physicality combined with Suarez diving (ok Drogba's probably not that different than Suarez in that respect) and a Joey Barton temper complete with antics...he regularly elbows, spits, blows snot, kicks players at every chance.

UK journos are also stumbling about Man Utd's Luke Shaw bid of 27m, some say its on, others say it's being considered, others say it was rejected and others are doing a wait and see :lol:

Premier League manager of the year is Tony Pulis.

Haven't been on in a while... so shall make my update quick...

YAY!! 3-0 up... we have this title in the bag... WHAT... oh, that's ok... 3-1, we'll let them have a goal... NO!! 3-2... this isn't good... we'll hold it though... 3-3... DAMN IT!!!! :smt013 :smt013

That's fine though. City will lose their game in hand

*City win their game in hand*

DAMN IT!!! :? :smt013

It's fine though. Liverpool just need to beat Newcastle and City lose to WHU and we've won it.

*Newcastle go 1-0 up by an epic OG*... DAMN IT!!!

That's fine though. City are still goalless, we just need to get 2 goals and win ours.

*Liverpool get 2-goals and win the game... BUT City are no longer goalless*

GOD DAMN IT!!! :smt013 :smt013 :smt013

*CITY WIN THE LEAGUE!!!!*.... *LIVERPOOL TAKE SECOND*

Ok!! Think i'm all caught up. :smt017 :smt017

Simple fact is. It's our own fault. We had it pretty much sewn up with the 3-0 lead... we threw it away. SIMPLES!!!

This is EXACTLY why I don't get my hopes up until it's a DEAD CERT!! I'm a pessimist.

Bring on Champions League football though. YAY!!! :smt026 :smt026 :smt026 :smt026 :smt026

I'm of two minds about the end result of this game, even though those two minds aren't all that even. I did want to see Liverpool win the League this year. I said it further up in this thread, it would have been nice to see a team that had never won the title in the Premier League era win the championship. There was a part of me that was sad that my team had a hand in preventing that from happening. Having said that, I am a Palace fan and my love for the Eagles trumps all other concerns in the end and I can't honestly say that I was truly unhappy with the way the game went.

a sad day for me...cant stop crying...this is such a shitty thing..to be 2 years so close..so pay better and have so many chances..but those who dont score tend to suffer goals and i guess that was it..the ref wasnt cool but cant have any excuses...the curse of bella guttman still haunts us for fucks sacke..

Really wanted Benfica to win, you deserved it and I didn't want a Spanish team lifting the trophy :(

Though on the bright side at least you have CL football next season.

I just looked up the Guttman curse :shock:

You've lost like 6 European finals since then. And before the 1990 European Cup final Eusebio prayed at the grave of Guttman to remove the curse :|

All those Thai noodle sponsors are working wonders, Income up 26% on last year and debt down to £351.7m for United :D

Still no manager though :-(

actually what he said was that no portuguese team would win the european champions cup twice and not in 100 years benfica would win a chamions cup without him..apparently it extends to all uefa cups....also..benfica has been to 10 eufa finals and won only the first 2..i think we hold the record on lost finals,were tied with juventus but have since surpassed them sadly...still in shock really
