Saturday+ football
NEWCASTLE UNITED vs WEST HAM UNITED (1230 ko)
A hard-earned point last time out and a Fulham blank lifted our hosts to a six-point advantage over the drop zone. And a game in hand. Which has all cheered the Geordie faithful no end. Both sides have injury concerns, but Callum Wilson – who always seems to score against us – may be set to return for Newcastle. Aaron Cresswell is a doubt for us, but the gaffer hopes he may be ready. Ogbonna is reportedly close to a return, but will still require match practice. With Everton drawing with Spurs last night, this game acquires even greater significance. A win would see us climb to third for a couple of days, while a draw would ensure that we finish the week no lower than fifth. A genuinely important game. Away win.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS vs SHEFFIELD UNITED (2015)
A Wolves victory today will see Sheffield Utd all but mathematically relegated, assuming Newcastle end the day pointless. And it’s hard to see anything other than a Wolves victory. Tara, you Blades. Home win.

FA CUP SEMI-FINAL

CHELSEA vs MANCHESTER CITY (1730)
However much he may want to deny it, Pep must be looking for the quadruple. Chelsea under Tuchel look efficient, effective and, at times, downright dull, which doesn’t give a lot of hope for an open, entertaining game. But you never know. Away win.


*SUNDAY*

ARSENAL vs FULHAM (1330)
An encouraging victory in Europe in midweek must have given Arsenal some much-needed confidence. For Fulham, though, things are looking bleak. Home win.

MANCHESTER UNITED vs BURNLEY (1600)
Man U can’t catch their noisy neighbours and won’t slip below second. There’s not much left for them to play for this season. Burnley look safe. Home win.

FA CUP SEMI-FINAL

LEICESTER CITY vs SOUTHAMPTON (1830)
At their best, the Saints have played some scintillating football this season. They’re safe from relegation, so the Cup offers their last and best chance for success. The Foxes were uninspiring against us and Hassenhutl can raise his troops for the occasion, we’ll be in for a good game. Hard to predict, so heart over head. Away win.


*MONDAY*

LEEDS UNITED vs LIVERPOOL (2000)
What an extraordinary season it’s been for both these sides, albeit for different reasons. And two of the Premier League’s more extraordinary managers meet today, one badly wanting to win, the other knowing that failure to win will contribute further to making the whole season a wash-out. Strange times at Liverpool, buoyant times for Leeds. On paper, this should be a cracking game of football. Draw.


*TUESDAY*

CHELSEA vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (2000)
Brighton are all but mathematically safe. Chelsea are looking to climb into the top three. Should be routine. Home win.


*WEDNESDAY*

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs SOUTHAMPTON (1800)
Will the Saints come into this as FA Cup finalists? Spurs look to have finally blown any lingering hopes of Champions League qualification, but should be strong enough to take all three points this evening. Home win.

ASTON VILLA vs MANCHESTER CITY (2015)
You’d have to be a Villa fan to think that they’ll get anything from this. Away win.


*THURSDAY*

LEICESTER CITY vs WEST BROMWICH ALBION (2000)
The Baggies are still in the mix, even though safety is looking like an increasingly unlikely outcome. Leicester will show no mercy as they look to reignite their chase for a top-three spot. Home win.

Big Sam needs a miracle - like getting fired in the morning so he can claim his record would be intact if he had been allowed to continue...

2-0 Foxes.

That's done & dusted, then.

Re: Saturday+ football
Also, if I was Stones and City, I would appeal it so at least I could play in the Final. If the appeal fails you just get an extra game added to you ban, but at least you get to play at Wembley.

Re: Saturday+ football

I don't think Stones was actually going in for a tackle. To me, it looked like he was trying to punt the ball in to the stands. The Villa player just got to the ball quicker and Stones ended up kicking him instead of the ball. It was late but for me a yellow would have been enough. Even Villa's manager didn't think it was a red card and he was only a few yards from it.

Re: Saturday+ football
Going back to Stones, it was a red for me. Late and high therefore dangerous. Whether or not he intended it is immaterial.

Re: Saturday+ football
Tonight then.

No way are Leicester catching Man U, so we need the Baggies to do us a favour by keeping them down in the mix to make both 3rd & 4th viable targets for the 5/6 teams chasing a CL spot.

Will they cup us an ear? Fuck knows! I'm off behind the sofa till tomorrow.

I have a word for when Man City are winning and just play keep ball. Possesstrian.

Re: Saturday+ football
Football is immensely gay and non contact now to the extent that people even believe some red cards are justified when in reality they are just a yellow.

I played football in a tough league and liked it rough, so I'm in the yellow camp for stones Red, as poorly timed, but wasn't malicious.

In modern football, 10 game ban.

Re: Saturday+ football
Man City used to be good to watch but I’ve noticed recently that they get a goal ahead and then just pass the ball around the back four 200 times to keep possession and chew up time.

They get these terrific stats for passing and make the game incredibly dull at the same time

Was a red for me, ugly challenge - out of control and high

That's not a fucking sending off in a million years. What the hell do these refs have between the ears?

red card all day long that, for Stones. Pep needs to behave.

Hopefully wba can get something against the foxes tomorrow

Ings is decent, when he’s not injured. Their momentum went when he was subbed.

Cheers, didn't know that about lingaard.

So Dawson out, Creswell out, anotnio out and rice

What about Arthur?

Romfordboy 11:06 Wed Apr 21
Re: Saturday+ football
So everyone calmed down after the Newcastle result

Liverpool and Chelsea both drawing they will be lucky to win 3/4 games each out of the last 6

Still say 3/4 wins and a couple of draws will be enough for top 4
