Saturday football
Nothing, but nothing, that happens today can eclipse the joy of last night’s result.

Were you watching, Lord Triesman? Bernard Bresslaw, Michael Brunson, Emma Bunton, D’Arcy Bussel, Dave Clark, Phil Collins, Bobby Davro, Iain Duncan Smith, Peter Ebdon, Michael Fish, Bruce Forsythe, Mike Gatting, Charlotte Green, Stelios EasyJet, Kenneth Brannagh, Chas and Dave, Merv Hughes, Natasha Kaplinsky, Henry Kelly, David Lammy, Richard Littlejohn, Trevor MacDonald, Warren Mitchell, Peter Purves, Salman Rushdie, John Sopel, Bryan Adams, Anthony Andrews, Mike Ashley, your boys took a hell of a beating.

Now then, there are a few things that still have to be sorted out at the foot of the table.
_______________________________________________

MAN CITY vs CRYSTAL PALACE (1230 ko)
Large portly Samuel’s miracle isn’t quite in the bag just yet, but if they avoid defeat and Swansea lose in the late game Crystal Palace will be mathematically safe. And who’d have thought that? Man City, meanwhile, have a chance to leapfrog Liverpool into third spot, but they’ll have to do that without Ageurro, Silva and Stones. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem, should it? Home win.

BOURNEMOUTH vs STOKE
There really is nothing to play for here, apart from pride and a possible top-half finish. The Cherries have successfully negotiated second season syndrome and will look to finish strongly. Stoke will hope to arrest an alarming slide in form and fortune. Draw.

BURNLEY vs WEST BROM
As Bournemouth emerge from their second season in the top flight, Burnley are about to enter it. There shouldn’t be too much of a problem negotiating a West Brom team that seems to have spent recent weeks soaking up the Mediterranean sun. Home win.

HULL vs SUNDERLAND
At last Sunderland have been put out of their misery. For Hull, the sweating continues although survival is firmly in their own hands. If they do survive, it will represent a feat no less impressive than what BFS has achieved at Selhurst Park. The Tigers must beware the wounded black cats. Home win.

LEICESTER vs WATFORD
Are you going to bother to read this? Am I going to bother two write it? Draw.

SWANSEA vs EVERTON (1730 ko)
It’s not looking good for the Swans and by the time they kick off in today’s late game, things may be looking a whole lot worse for the home side. But whatever happens at Hull, Swansea must win to keep the pressure on, to keep hope flickering, however faintly. Everton have secured seventh spot and any complacency arising from that knowledge will be the sole succour for the Swans. Draw.

Bugger it.

I noticed that as soon as I posted it and was waiting for you. But with more than 24 hours gone had assumed I'd got away with it. Bollocks.

Have a good one 'Wee.

What manager goes into training all week hoping the game on Saturday is going to be 0-0? Fucks sake.

Re: Saturday football
Of course you wasn't quoting him, that wouldn't have done your defense of him much good.

I'm sure you also agree that is was all his players fault, and nothing was down to him.

Thank you.

Re: Saturday football
Well, I wasn't quoting him, and it WOULD have been a valuable point.

Private Dancer 9:47 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
Right on cue. Ha ha.

Notice you use the term 'a valuable point' rather than what he actually said.

Oh, and Coffee ..."Are you going to bother to read this? Am I going to bother two write it?"

Re: Saturday football
Big Sam says he would love his relegation threatened side to secure a valuable point away to Man City, and he's out of order??

Private Dancer 9:38 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
When you have a manager at this level today boasting that they would love a 0-0 it's almost shocking and shows a complete lack of awareness about the modern game and the supporters. Clubs will always employ people like BFS and Pulis because they keep you up, but I'm hoping and suspect that these 2 are the last of that generation.

Sven Roeder 9:29 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
In a way I was disappointed he fucked up his England chance (as amusing as it was) as he finally would have had the chance to show what he could do with better players and resources.
They should stay up so let's see what they do next season as he has had & will have decent money to spend.

Coffee 9:21 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
Not sure I agree with that, Sven. I think he's found a formula for his coaching that has proved itself, has demonstrated success in a defensive sense at least. I think he sees his challenge as applying that formula to whatever team he finds himself in charge of. There must be some kind of a thrill in that.

Sven Roeder 9:01 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
Said towards the end of his time with us that my abiding impression of Allardyce is that he doesn't actually like football that much.
He likes the rewards and knocking back a celebratory pint of wine but he doesn't have any passion for the game and entertaining football.
Have nothing against Palace but would love to see Hull beat them next week just to see the media reaction as Mr Guaranteed Staying Up hovers over the drop.

Private Dancer 8:11 Sun May 7
Re: Saturday football
I saw an interview yesterday with Allardyce, from the week. He said he'd 'love a 0-0' (at Man City) The interviewer seemed to be caught off guard a little that a manager in today's game would still come out with something like that. but he mustered 'would you take a 5-5 too?' You can imagine the bewildered look on Allardyce's fat face, to which he eventually replied 'you know I love a clean sheet'

Fucking 2017 with people paying through the nose to be entertained at football and this fucking fat, selfish, fraud cunt is still coming out with shit like this. Cunt has no place at the top level in today's game.

Haha!!

I see Hartlepools scored their winner in the 83rd minute, the sheer elation they must have felt, relief, excitement of preserving their league status......until Newport bagged their winner in the 89th minute!!

Ouch.

Fat Sam has never needed a 0-0 more than he does next week.

Think I might give that one a miss.

terry.

For Palace to go down, they have to lose both of their remaining games. And Swansea would have to at least win one and draw one from their remaining two games (Sunderland (a) and West Brom (h)), and Hull would have to win both their remaining games, which are Palace (a) and spur (h). Have I got that right?

HairyHammer 9:21 Sat May 6
Re: Saturday football
Our win came just at the right time had we lost it could have been another week or so of stomach churning torture, its nice to relax now.

Re: Saturday football
Wouldn't it be marvellous if Mr Allardyce were to be relegated in Palace's final match at Old Trafford?

I'D LOOVE IT!!
