Klopp's already ruled himself out of the job, probably because he's just waiting until the Arsenal one becomes available

van Gaal could be risky, plus there were rumours of him to Spurs for next season

Atletico to win I reckon, surprised Costa came back from injury so quickly

I reckon that the leaked rumours about his sacking pressured Moyes into being sacked, I thought they'd at least give him the whole season.

Possibly, either way there was a lot of what needed doing with that squad which Fergie neglected (the midfield mainly) and Moyes, whilst trying, didn't address it in the right way. It was always going to be a transition period but having lost the locker room, some of his staff (looking at you Giggs) and the fans, I think the sacking was inevitable. Shame really.

Chelsea going very defensive looking at their line up; could be an interesting tactical battle.

United spent too much time chasing Fabregas and ended up getting Fellaini and Mata in a panic.

Thiago was the main one they missed out on, would have been a decent signing. Fellaini was a panic, Herrera if he had joined would have been too. Fabregas was an interesting one, still think if he ever leaves Barcelona it will be to return to Arsenal.

Mata was definitely not a panic. I wonder if with the new full time manager he'll get to play in the #10 role.

EDIT: Real Madrid winning woooo

Liverpool v Chelsea this weekend then. I'm actually pretty excited to see how it turns out, but I can only really see Liverpool going and winning it.

A draw would actually be enough for Liverpool, if they go and win the rest after...

I'm actually going to the game, should be a great game, which of course means it will be a thrilling 0-0. I really hope we can win it, though I still don't trust us to win our remaining games. Tbf if we actually win the league it'll be about 14 wins in a row or something ridiculous like that, so if we pull that off I reckon we deserve to win.

If Liverpool beat Chelsea then it's as good as won.

It'd be really special if Chelsea won via a Torres last minute winner tbh

It'll probably be Ba starting so it's possible


RIP Tito Vilanova

I believe Liverpool's run in is Chelsea at home, Crystal Palace away (that could be a tricky one knowing what they did to Chelsea) and Newcastle at home (this could be a win in the bag, considering how bad they've been doing recently). I'd say that's as good as theirs, as long as they get on the front foot early in each match.

If Liverpool need to win against Newcastle to secure the title though...that could be a really entertaining match.

no matter what it'll be a terrible match ;;



So Giggs went to Norwich and smashed them

Ronaldo scored two screamers

Two Everton own goals

that's about it



Gerrard says to his players "Don't -ahem- slip" a week or so ago

Gerrard slips, costing them the game

lol

Man City can now secure the title if they win their remaining games, unless Liverpool do the same and score tons. Their goal difference is what, 8 lower than Man City's? This is gonna be interesting.

The only people that can really stop them are Everton, who are chasing Champions League football.

It's going to be a good end to the season, but I really want Liverpool to win it.

Palace away could be tough for Liverpool depending on how well they bounce back. The big players for them today really didn't step up either.

Everton game will be interesting, if City start as well as they did today they'll be fine.

Btw the team of the year is disappointing.

Cech
Coleman Cahill Kompany Shaw
Lallana Gerrard Toure Hazard
Sturridge Suarez

should be

De Gea
Coleman Terry Koscielny Azpilicueta
Lallana Ramsey Toure Hazard
Sturridge Suarez

Or if Ramsey only playing half the season isn't good enough then Schneiderlin
