Financial Fair Play. Yeah right. What is ironic is that La Liga are moaning despite the finances of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It sounds nuts. Read this. 127 million pound signing on fee

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61522315

He’s on more than 3 times the salary we had Özil on. That’s just mental. The moaning from Madrid is pathetic really but you have to say the premise of their moaning is justified.

Can we just get these state and oil clubs and put them in their in their own league.

Bit like the yanks moaning about Russia invading other countries. They are right but the have rather lost the moral high ground on this point!

When all is said and done, Areta improved. Almost all of us would have been very happy with 5th prior to the season.

That said, we have had some endemic issues for a while. 3rd was very close this season. We lost 3rd (and 4th) in the worse possible way: losing to lower sides when it counted and beating teams around us in the same general time period.

Can't wait for the documentary. Almost as excited about as I am the new Obi Wan Kenobi movie.

Usually I’m falling over and going home at the 6 mark. But yesterday I felt like I could go on and on.

Don’t remember getting home, but then neither does she. It was all her fault your honour.

Paying for it today though.

Iwobi brought his arm up to block the ball, fairly obvious

Well, Norwich don't seem likely to give us the miracle we needed but at least we're doing our part today. We've been absolutely dominant for the first 30 minutes.

4-1 now, but it was all over for fourth before kick off.
A season of progress and some promise despite the way it has ended. I hope the club have the sense to continue with another transfer window like last summer. We need to continue clearing out the dead wood and buying young talent willing to give everything for the cause.

It would be nothing short of a miracle if Villa holds of City but would love to see it happen and Liverpool get a win. Quad still in play.

I see there is an 'FA Trophy' being contested between Bromley and Wrexam. What the hell is that? Are they having so many cups now that its the U.S. version of 'every kid gets a trophy' thing?

Well it was always delusional to hope that Norwich might get a result today.

The current 0-5 amplifies that.

In other news it is mega tense at Anfield right now.

Not really. That and the FA Vase are for a completely different set of clubs.

Villa up 2 nil. Are City going to blow it on the last day? Hilarious. Watching 3 games at once, mostly City and Liverpool back and forth.

11 point gap down to Man Utd in 6th place. When so many pundits had them in the top three going into the season, I said I thought we were a lot closer to them than they were to Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City - but I did not expect this!

We finish with a points total that gets 3rd in the last two seasons.

Thank goodness City got their win. The idea of Liverpool doing the quadruple was unbearable

Sunny day, pressure off, turn on the style. Some good performances but although Everton were on the beach it really emphasised how bad we were at Newcastle.

Hard not to think that a couple of players in Jan, even on loan, would have been enough to get us over the line.

Look at Spurs, two signings in Jan straight into their first team and produced the goods.

Hey ho, another season bites the dust.

So that would be glass half empty then? :toothy9:

It’s over. Big ride, good effort this season

A couple of big players could make all the difference. If they could just get a ruthless killer up front things could really pop. It’s not a big a swing as people think.

Elneny has signed a 1 year extension. Makes sense with more games next year really

Lots of talk that Elneny has signed a 1 year deal with an option for a further year. Nothing official yet.

Couldn’t agree more. To want Liverpool to win the quadruple you’d either have to support them or live thousands of miles away from the UK to be clueless about how obnoxious the media hero worship of them is.

I certainly didn't want them to win the quadruple, but I wanted them to beat City to the league. They are the only club in England who can go the distance with City. Without them, the league would be a procession. Also, they play more entertaining football.

When it comes to fans, the Man Utd fans are far far more annoying than the Liverpool fans over here.

I hope Madrid win the CL though.

Completely understand, the Liverpool fanbase in America is has grown massively over the years. My friends stateside are either always one of 4 clubs. City, Man Utd, Liverpool or Chelsea, with the latter being the older ones always. Their kids are all Liverpool or City fans. Glory hunting is a shameless pasttime among Americans. Unbearable as it would be, I personally hate Man Utd so much, I'd put up with it just so that the treble would be 2nd best. Wouldn't be what most fans would want but for me, I hate Man Utd that much.

My highlight today was the Ødegaard goal and the clock end ultras who sang for 20 mins+ non stop. Lets hope the owners continue splashing the cash for the rebuild. Failiure to do so would be moronic in my opinion.

Fans are going to look at this season as 3rd or 4th place lost or 5th place gained. I'm going the with the latter espcially based on our first month. 15th seemed more of a goal than 5th after the first month. Other than Moyes, I think Arteta did the best job in the league overall.

The bar has been raised for Arteta. CL qualifying is now the new standard. Now we have to spend like a club that is CL qualifying.

PS: Congrats to Vieira for beating Man Utd..loved it. Was watching at the end hoping they'd hang on, knowing if I did, I would likely jinx them. :42laughter:

I might agree that Manchester United fans may be more annoying than Liverpool supporters. But it was the fawning, stomach churning media frenzy about how wonderful Liverpool are that turns my gut. That’s why I worded it “how obnoxious the media hero worship of them is”

Have a slight feeling we will see Mr Nketiah next season. Some slight words in what Mikel said indicate our possible intent. Just a hunch

If we are going pretty big on a main striker I’m not sure the finances exist to sign another player as back up and you know Eddie can do this business in the europa/carabao cups all day long. I still have my reservations about him as a player outside the box but I’m not sure you can say that wouldn’t make sense
