Chelsea and Spurs as we can see are clearly well ahead of the other big teams.

Great goal from Zlatan, don't think that was a red card tackle though.

More incompetent refereeing again sadly.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

I think it was, he's over the ball, mere seconds after nearly catching Pogba on the ankle with his studs, he's lucky neither get clean contact, if we're playing by the rules, you have to send him off, Ross Barkley should've been off for his last week. Obviously people think it's harsh but you don't have to break someones leg to be sent off. The rules evidently need more defined and applied consistently as seen with Ross Barkley.

https://imgur.com/l2GhSzz there's the still borrowed from reddit.

Another couple of inches to the left and he's snapping someones leg. Yeah though, on another day I'd sympathise, given how many people generally get away with these tackles down to lack of consistency but the fact he's gone through Pogba with the same challenge less than a second earlier and barely managed to pull out only led to a completely deserved sending off, far too aggressive.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

As Steve Harper said on BBC online it was probably an Orange.

Yellow cards like confetti now.

That one against Martial was ridiculous, the keeper kicked him.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

I think two of the bottom three are securing their fate, Middlesbrough would be the great escape this year, Sunderland will be down before the final day though.

It's completely possible for Sunderland to turn it around though and they do have the benefit of playing both Boro and Swansea.. so that same benefit also works in reverse. Sunderland have to beat both Swansea and Boro and pick up points elsewhere if you write the final day off at Chelsea. We seen it last year with ourselves, a draw with fellow drop side Villa sealed it when it was essential to pick up three points, had we won the game, we'd have stayed up going on the results that followed.

Arsenal have to match United now, this is what I alluded to in previous posts, the top four is far from secure, if both Arsenal and United collect maximum points from games in hand, they'll draw level with Liverpool.

United have to play, Chelsea, City, Arsenal and Spurs. If they were to win all four, however unlikely that is, they'd be finishing in the top four, as a neutral that scheduling is a dream, there's literally a mini playoff for the two spots. Arsenal have the easier run in up until they play United and Spurs back to back. If Everton win today they'll be level with Arsenal but that'll be irrelevant given the they're games ahead and Arsenal suddenly lose that advantage by losing 3 in a row.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

I honestly don't see which way it goes, 4 teams, 2 spots, games in hand, tough run ins, and like above, we've almost got them all running into each other.

Does the winner of the champions league still occupy a place if they win?

Chelsea won in 2012 whilst Spurs finished fourth, I remember this because we ourselves were fighting for that fourth spot and in the end it would ultimately have been pointless. So obviously in the unlikely scenario Leicester City actually won it, fourth spot would then be theirs.

That's not really what I was getting at there though, United could win the Europa League which has a prize of Champions League football bundled with it, which IIRC does not effect league standing qualification in any way.

So winning the harder and more prestigious champions league allows you to defend it at the expense of your fellow teams league position. Winning the Europa allows 5 English teams in the Champions League

Why can't they just allow 5 teams in either scenario? assuming the CL winner hasn't finished in a qualifying spot.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

This would be a devastating result.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Oh what a finish by Kebab. Absolutely sublime. There's no leaders, you'd expect Ozil to really get that midfield solid, much like we benefit from Shelvey being key to our entire season this year. Ozil is just... meh?

They're also wiping goal difference off, Arsenal couldn't afford to lose this, never mind pray for a point..

It's also a devastating result for Sunderland, that could get even worse should Hull also pull away when they play and Sunderland fail to win.

Edit: Arsenal are falling apart.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Arsenal are being buried. Odds of even salvaging a point.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal career is crashing down.

---------- Post added at 21:30 ---------- Previous post was at 21:27 ----------

Wow, just no luck for Arsenal. Having re-watched the penalty, Townsend dives. Two wins from Seven at this stage is bad though. Who's the next Arsenal manager? David Moyes? Arsenal fans are now abusing their own players.
