And yet you care enough to reply hahaha you are some Big fan of me. You Just made my day is kinda fun to know someone is fallowing my every move since they have no life.


Jesus, THIS is what made your day? You clearly have a lot going on in your life if this is the highlight of your day.

As exciting as this season has been, next season promises to be even better. United will be re-tooling, Spurs will be re-tooling, Everton will (hopefully) be re-tooling, and Arsenal will continue to underwhelm.

Still way ahead of schedule, most thought we would be fighting for 4th at best. Fighting for the league and still have a shot with one game remaining. That's with a team that cost less than a few other clubs B teams. Now BR has a 65 mil pound purse plus whatever he gets from sales plus still the best strikeforce in the PL. We'll be good to go.


I think is the part most people are forgetting. I was, as were many others, disappointed to see liverpool crumble like that, but to be where they are (champions league) is just the next step, the shot at the title was just a bonus for how freaking prolific they've been all season. Sign a few defenders, get a little more depth, and next year will be interesting, assuming they don't pull it off somehow this year.

Who do you guys have for Manager of the year? I could easily see it going to Martinez, Rodgers, or Pulis. Personally, I think it should be Pulis. With the resources he had at his disposal, he did the best with what he had. The job that Rodgers did is remarkable, but he still has a squad of fantastic players at his disposal.

Martinez...No idea how Everton did as well as they did with the amount of playing time Naismith had. Incredible job.

Not sure how he's done any better than Moyes. They've looked better on the field but Moyes has had them finishing 6th and 7th the last few years. They are going to finish 5th....two spots up the table. Liverpool has finished 7-9 the last few years and now it's looking like at least 2nd.

I'm getting tired of hearing/reading about them crumbling. They did not crumble. They made an educated correct decision. These were their options.

1) Beat Crystal Palace 3-0. Likely lose a tiebreaker to Man City come in 2nd.
2) Go for the jugular against Palace, make up the goal difference on sunday.

The likely hood of Man City not winning both games is low. Unless Pool made up 8 GD they are 2nd. he went for it. It was the right decision. Just didnt wwork out for them

Don't let your red goggles blind you. Martinez has brought the School of Science back to Goodison. Moyes absolutely did not. He has the team believing in themselves more than Moyes did. He had us within touching distance of a CL spot right till the end of the season. And he has worked some amazing performances out of players all season long, most notably Naismith. A decent footballer, but under Martinez he has thrived.

It was the right decision initially but as soon as that 1st goal went in for Palace....it was time to adjust and close up shop and get the win. Hope that City draw in one of the games and GD becomes irrelevant.

No red googles.....I think you might have them Toffee goggles on. Rodgers improved the way they played along with improving their position on the table tremendously...Martinez just did one of those things. As far as players.....most made fun of Liverpool for spending so much on Hendo and he's turned into a top MF in the PL along with taking a young RB that was living in the U21s and made him a quality option at LB....along with keeping Suarez and Sturridge happy, and don't get me started on Sterling.

I'm not discounting what Rodgers has done. He did an unbelievable job this season. But when it all comes down it, he had far more weapons at his disposal than Martinez did. I think what Martinez did with the players he had is more impressive.

No matter, though. Pulis should still win manager of the year.

Oh well, there is Chelsea officially eliminated (no way Villa are coming back). Looking forward to a fresh start next year. It will be nice to see VanGinkel on the pitch and perhaps this will finally be the year a few players step up from our youth ranks (Ake, Kallas, Chalobah, Bamford) after a few years sustained success in the youth FA Cup and the reserve league.

Sunderland stayed up. Now we wait and see what happens with Jozy in the offseason.

Jozy missed a sitter apparently. He just can't catch a break.
