I am not gloating to save up some humbleness karma for the final.

That said, I'm glad Man City won the league, for my own betting reasons, and dislike of a Liverpool fan, or two, or three.

Fairly disgusted at Brighton for sacking Hughton, although I guess they’ve been on a pretty terrible run with the football not being great but still he’s done a fantastic job with a very small squad and little money. Football really is cutthroat.

Absolutely agree, treated poorly again. Newcastle, Norwich and now Brighton, what do these clubs expect? Europa league football?? FA Cups? they haven't got the money.

That was a really stupid thing to do, getting them promoted and then keeping a team like Brighton in the Premiership has to be seen as a major win. I don't think they'll find a better manager, he is well respected and the players give 100% for him. They will be fucked next season and probably slip back down into the Championship.

Apparently the excuse was the second half of the season form. If that is the case Pochettino should be sacked too.

Brighton are decent but this strikes me as a bit of a Tony Pulis leaving West Brom situation.

I could be wrong but they are punching above their weight expecting more than dogged football and survival.

Yep, almost certainly. Apparently he didn't have a lot of say-so in some of the players they brought in, which is never good. The success of the likes of Leicester, Watford, and some others has put a lot of managers like Chris on a hiding to nothing--the goal is to stay up, so they try to keep things solid in order to do that. Then the football's not good enough. I mean, they even had their best cup run in years...

From the BBC sport website. This is Mike Dean celebrating a Tranmere goal in their quest for a League 2 play off final appearance. Perhaps that's why he's such a cunt in our recent matches, because we smashed his team 7 - 0 in the FA Cup?

I genuinely though referees had to have to affiliation?

This Newcastle takeover bid is worrying, another financial juggernaut to contend with. The prospective owners have cash to burn. Cousins to the Man City owner too.

As much as I don’t want this to happen at Spurs, it will be the only way in 5 years......

Yeah it’s all over as we know it. Less than 5 years as well, I wonder who we’ll get? Qatari’s are interested in Leeds United .

I’m done when all this happens. It’s not football any more to me. Just rich organisations getting richer.

The only way it stops is the first big major club in europe going bankrupt when an investor is jailed,gets bored and pulls out,tv companies or major sponsor going bust and pulling revenue.It will happen,it happened with leeds,monaco,both milan clubs been on the edge,how long can some clubs sustain losses just to be on the back pages?only when a disaster occurs will UEFA,FIFA,the leagues ensure FFP is water tight,adhered to and not just a poor PR exercise with no teeth.
Yes the US ownership model shows money can be made by owners in bucketloads,but success on the field?arsenal,man utd,liverpool (harsh but still yet to win a single thing for the FSG owners big spending) shows success on the balance sheet wont bring trophies.So if the owner has ego he will try&outspend an oligarch,oil sheik,nation state just for the hell of it,and then i guess like abrahamovich it gets boring,expensive and interest wanes,especially when you are owed 1.1bn interest free and add another billion to replace a decrepid stadium.
Over 2 billion to buy a club thats not even competeing for the top 2 in england let alone europes elite ??and then add 500million to better the squad,please it aint going to happen for what is a small club in west london.

And the more billionaires buying clubs,the dilution of any chance of silverware for the other billionaires,especially champions league the holy grail,eh PSG,city.

You see, what I am doing is trying to enjoy the upsides..... without contributing.

No shirt or other landfill merch, no games, just hooky TV and glory... if people want to pay it great, let them.... I simply refuse

Salary cap would level the field a bit
without getting political, european law would be a problem,and already we see PSG,City with creative accounting already circumventing the rules,though i agree with you.Trouble is the all powerful&mighty will never vote for it,and they hold the purse strings.

They've also got UEFA by the balls. If UEFA don''t set up a European Super League, I'm sure the clubs will. Thing is it might hopefully blow up in their face after a couple of seasons, like Kerry Packer's cricket circus.
