So the most boring title race of all time is finally over.....thank fuck for that.

2 teams who week on week never even drew a game let alone lose one. Bore off.

Must say both teams are a country mile ahead of the rest and for the first time ever I’m concerned that the invincibles could be in danger over the next few seasons :shock:

City won 18 of their last 19 including the final 14 in a row and Liverpool only lost once all season and that was to City (thank fuck). They swat the shit aside every week and don’t have much trouble against the supposed bigger guns either. The rest of the league needs to improve massively or those 2 will piss all over it again next year.

Struggling to put my finger on how good these two sides are - Liverpool in particular. Unbelievable amount of luck week in week out (another offside goal today by the way, shocker) but 97 points??? Jesus that is unbelievable.

Invincibles (90 points), Mourinho's first Chelsea team (95 and 91 points) and Ronaldo's United in 2008 (87 points) - for me the 3 best sides in PL history, certainly until City's billionaire all-stars last year. At a time when English sides were flooding the latter stages of the CL every single season. Surely you would back those sides against Liverpool over the course of the season? What has changed with the rest of the league? Is it just that the money for the top sides is so ludicrous these days that the likes of City in particular have squads of 20+ quality players whereas the Invincibles' strongest line-up featured a bench of Stack, Keown, Cygan, Parlour, Edu, Wiltord and Aliadiere? Meanwhile City's bench features Bravo, Mendy, Stones, Foden, Mahrez, Sane and Jesus whilst Liverpool's bench features a bench of Mignolet, Lovren, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Origi and Sturridge.

Anyway, thank fuck that the wait goes on for Liverpool. Fucking vile fanbase, the Geordies up here are livid about the behaviour of their fans last weekend. Really fancy them to beat Spurs in a few weeks at least.

The latest victim bias bullshit being propagated on SlySports is that the victim's are the "greatest runners up in the history of the game". :oops: :roll:

No. They are losers. They lost the league. They won it as much as we did or Cardiff did, as in y'know, not at fucking all. :roll:

Have to be honest here though I have this awful awful gut feeling the victims are gonna bottle the CL.

:puke:

On paper you'd fancy the victims to do the scum but never forget Stupid Teeth's "ability" to bottle major finals. Has any supposed top level manager lost 6 out of 7 finals? Ever? :oops:

I genuinely am shitting it about this final. Just the thought of the vermin wi-

-nning it is appalling and-

:puke:

-nauseating.

According to the official LFC Twitter both City and Liverpool are winners while the media whore claimed they had won the people's hearts. Former ref Keith Hackett took to Twitter to claim City won the league in the 31st minute of their game v Liverpool on January 4th when Anthony Taylor failed to send off Vincent Kompany for a foul on Mo Salah. ..It goes on and on, I would rather win the title with the lowest number of points on record than finish runners up with the highest number of points on record.
Best Premier League season ever say the pundits..No way, it was a two horse race before Christmas, and while both City and Liverpool may deserve credit the fact that the chasing pack were muck was more relevent. Spurs 13 defeats in other seasons was mid table at best.
Glad it's over, it was nauseating at times . Liverpool had seven offside goals in a season. Robertson's hand ball in build up to winner V Palace, Fabhino dive to win free at Newcastle which won the game. Liverpool didn't win it without VAR, they won't win it with VAR.

Above - absolutely. It doesn't matter how many points the winner gets as long as they get more than the rest. The number of points that the first placed loser gets is completely fucking irrelevant however much the victim loving media want to try and spin it. Ridiculous. It's just like those twats at Corbyn & Co trying to claim that they won the last election. No sorry victims you LOST :lol:

Just down the bookies and put 300 multi on Chelsea and Tottenham.

That way, if the worst happens at least I get something out of it

I'm thinking of doing similar.

should have had a bet at half time at Ajax though - wonder what the odds were then!!

what is really annoying is that in any normal circumstances we could celebrate their possible bottling of the CL final.
instead we are having to support them ! :banghead:

It's utterly hilarious that Liverpool didn't win the league after the season they've had. If it was us I'd be absolutely gutted that the performance didn't end with the title. And I really think this was the season they had to win it, hard to see City's levels dropping over the next few seasons, whereas it would be a surprise if Liverpool could be that good again. Pretty much all big moments have gone in their favour.

Brighton sacked hughton. good.

I've always liked Brighton. great town to visit. they almost beat united in the FA Cup Final too, so I keep an eye on them, especially after losing the Goldstone.

it never sat well with me that they had a spud as a manager.

hopefully they appoint a decent young manager and stay up next year.
