Football 08/05/2017 - 12/-5/2017


#1

Title race is over
Relegation race as good as over tonight
Top four done
All the non-playoff business wrapped up

Literally nothing to talk about is there really.


#2

I saw Hibs draw with St Mirren: champions and last-day staving off of relegation respectively. In glorious sunshine. Rare that you have both sets of fans celebrating at the final whistle, innit? Shame it was Scottish football


#3

Did you sing Sunshine on Leith?


#4

Nope: but I did sing along to I’m on my way. Love a bit of Proclaimers.


#5

(actually, tbf, hibs played some good stuff at times)


#6

Championship season’s over. Bored already.


#7

I’m not overly pessimistic about next year, for once.


#8

I thought I’d do one of those predictor things:


#9

Got to look at whoever loses in Palace/Hull to get the drop now. Should be an absolute belter.


#10

What’s the green shading for?


#11


#12

Needy fans


#13

transfer rumours, maybe? @aboynamedgoo??

oh! there’s some Eurofooty this week. that’s okay, I guess.

didn’t even watch the game yesterday because I had somewhere else to be. did we try to win? I’m assuming we tried a bit, but Rooney was like a football hole where attacks went to die.


#14

I watched it in the pub. My expert analysis is that Man United didn’t do very much.


#15

Not in the Eredivisie, where almost champions Feyenoord implode against Excelsior and lose unexpectedly 3 - 0. Victory parade cancelled and riots in Rotterdam city centre ensue.

Everything will come down to the final day now, with Feyenoord having a 1 point lead over Ajax and a superior goal difference, so they are still the favourites. But do they have the nerves?

The permutations in full:
Feyenoord win, Ajax win: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord win, Ajax draw: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord win, Ajax lose: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord draw, Ajax win: Ajax champions
Feyenoord draw, Ajax draw: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord draw, Ajax lose: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord lose, Ajax win: Ajax champions
Feyenoord lose, Ajax draw: Feyenoord champions
Feyenoord lose, Ajax lose: Feyenoord champions

All games are taking place on Sunday, kick-off at 12:30 PM UK time. Not on Sky Sport it seems, so best to tune in to NOS Langs De Lijn on the old wireless …


#16

Who are the respective opponents?


#17

Let’s wait until the season’s over, shall we? It’s gonna be a long summer.


#18

ughhhh.

we still have to play Spurs and all. who might still harbour some vain hopes of getting something out of this season. [cowers]


#19

oh, the wasted summers of non-WC/EC years…

upsetting.


#20

Feyenoord are at home against Heracles (9th), Ajax are away at Willem II (12th).
