So I got to watch my boys Fulham get trounced by Man City on Saturday.  The score was only 2-0 but it wasn't nearly that close.  Should have been 4 or 5-0 in the first 25 minutes or so.

 

Fulham's defense has been horrific all year, and Man City's 2 goals early in the game were scored on just horrendous turnovers by Fulham in their defensive third.  At one point it was so bad that the home Fulham fans were giving a Bronx cheer every time one of their players successfully completed a pass.  

 

Nice of them to follow up a terrible Orioles season with a terrible soccer season for me.  Off to dominate the Championship now!

Well its Championship Sunday. Every EPL game is on tv this morning at 10 EDT. And the title isn't decided yet. Its going to be either Man City or Liverpool and which ever team doesn't win will set a EPL record for points for a second place team. Note that Liverpool is at home at Anfield while Man City is on the road. This could be interesting.

 

Other than that there isn't really much at stake today.

 

Cardiff, Fulham, and Huddersfield have already been relegated.

 

There is a insanely slight chance that for the first time ever the EPL could end up in a dead tie for first requiring a one game playoff. Here's how the title sets up today.

1. If Man City beats Brighton Hove Albion they win.

2. If Liverpool beats Wolverhampton and Man City loses or draws they win.

3. If Man City loses 4-0 and Liverpool draws 4-4 they will finish in a dead tie after all tie breakers and would have a playoff.

 

The top four (which qualify for next years UCL) are set at Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham. Although Tottenham could actually drop behind Arsenal if they lose, Arsenal wins, and they have an 8 goal swing in differential.

 

Fifth and Sixth (which qualify for next seasons Europa League) are set with Arsenal and Man U. But as noted above Arsenal has the potential, albeit slim, to move up to fourth place which would be huge. Since they can't fall below 6th they have nothing to lose so expect them to come out looking for a butt load of goals.

 

Its been a fantastic season but all good things come to an end. But its only two months till camps open and the new season begins in August!!!

Bummer that Liverpool came up a point short, but still a great season.  Time to win the big one on 6/1.

Man City won the FA Cup giving them the domestic treble. First mens club in English history to win the league, FA Cup, and League Cup.
