Mon-Fri Foot

Pick the bones out of the weekend’s soccer action, 2 good FA cup semis, a very good clasico, every game in the premiership going as expected.

This weeks foot diary:

Mon: Newcsastle secure promotion vs. Preston
Tues: Chelsea to basically win the league, Huddersfield to confirm a playoff spot
Weds: Arsenal vs. Leicester, Boro vs. Sunderland, Spuds vs. Palace
Thurs: Sevilla vs. Celta Vigo
Fri: Cardiff vs. Newcastle

Heroic escape from relegation from the Ryman Prem was completed amidst farcical scenes in front of a season high home crowd.

22 points out of 30 rescued us, we looked absolutely dead and buried at the end of February.

If I was capable of emotions, I would have been on a roller-coaster.

Pleasing result in el

It was a very, very good Clasico. It will be very annoying if their trophy cabinets mean history remembers Messi and Ronaldo as equals.

I know there seems to have been a bit of a backlash the last few months (“he just runs around a lot” is apparently a sincerely held opinion), but I’m properly chuffed for Kante. Have really enjoyed watching him this year- his reading of the game is unbelievable at times, and it’s also been good to see his passing and shooting ability improve as the season has gone on.

Why has this thread been marked as rubbish?

Please burn all the mods

It’s very strange isn’t it

The Eredivisie is all but decided, as in a very close match PSV defeat Ajax by a single goal, leaving Feyenoord 4 points clear with two games left to play. All eyes are on the Europa League now.

Don’t think I saw this covered last week.

This response from the Torquay club owners:

Following this article in the Guardian:

From what I know I think the Guardian article is pretty much on the money. Club response is full on @needlessly_defensive

On the pitch we beat Dover 2-1 away to pull us out of the relegation zone, with North Ferriby (already relegated) to play at home, it’s in our hands now :pray:

People get in a huff about this, but I don’t remember the last time I heard anyone in real life suggest Ronaldo was better than Messi. I think it’s a debate that only exists among 12 year olds in the YouTube comments section.

my sister in law thinks ronaldo is better, but she’s spanish with a general hatred for barca and messi. she’s so easy to wind up about it, it’s so much fun :slight_smile:

Cardiff v Newcastle set up for hilarity regardless of result, can’t complain.

Good day of football yesterday.

Celtic played pretty well, but Rangers were largely woeful, and it was a completely comfortable victory. Can see next week’s game at Ibrox being bad-tempered - we’re due one with a few red cards, and it being meaningless in terms of the league might cause some players to lose their head I think.

Arsenal v City wasn’t a classic - it made me remember how enjoyable Oxlade-Chamberlain is to watch when he plays well though. I always feel slightly cheated when extra time doesn’t lead to penalties.

Real v Barca was just great. Messi Messi Messi Messi Messi.
