So it’s now the international break, just when the ‘Business End’ of the season is hotting up UEFA decide it’s time to risk the fitness of all the best players and watch Lithuania. Off course we won’t really be able to watch Lithuania because England wont let its home games be televised.
Being the ‘business end’ of the season means there’s the Champions League to decide – will Messi, Ronaldo or Robben win it, or in other words – who cares because there’s no English teams left. Honestly it really is time UEFA stepped in and stopped this total unbalance of European sides. La Liga should just be a tournament of three teams, whilst there really is no point in running the Bundesliga, it should just be awarded to Bayern Munchen each year! It’s always nice to have at least one English team flying the flag (preferably our beloved Arsenal) if only to watch with the added tension of “Please may Chelski lose this one” or that feeling that English teams really are the best when Man U/Liverpool (or even Arsenal) used to make it to the Final each year!
Anyway I digress, it’s usually about now that we start looking at the Barclays Premier League and try and work out how it will finish. The BBC used to provide a handy ‘End of Season’ calculator but they haven’t done that for a few years so we’ll just have to do it the old fashioned way. Some rough math on the back of an old envelope.
We all know that Chelski are going to win the Barclays Premier League, so the real questions are; Can Arsenal finish better than the fourth place play off? Wouldn’t it be great if Man U failed to qualify for the Champions League again? How far down can Man Shitty be before their manager gets sacked? And will Liverpool Self implode thanks to an end of season screw up by Stevie G? Oh and most importantly – when will we be celebrating St Totteringhams day?
Before last weekend I really thought Liverpool were in with a chance, especially if they could have pulled off beating Man U at home. It would have been perfect for us Gooners since it would have opened up a three point gap between us and fourth place. Well it was not to have been thanks in the whole to Steve G’s 38 seconds of madness, I do believe he’s triggered the Liverpool end of season squidgies again, meaning they will miss out on Champions league footie next year - memories flash back to his little slip up last year that gave Chelski a 2-0 win just as Liverpool were coasting to the BPL title.
So here goes – here are my predictions for the results of the top seven clubs and how the end of season table will look: Believe me this took ages to put together so read carefully! Remember this is just for fun so don't blame me if it all goes belly up!
So the end of season predictions are:
Arsenal will finish second for the first since 2004/05 season
Arsenal beat Liverpool in the FA Cup final 3-2 after extra time, Giroud scores a hattrick
Most importantly, St Totteringhams day on my predictions will be May 9th when Spurs lose to Stoke and Arsenal beat Swansea
Yes, with Liverpool having both Gerrard and now Skrtel red carded they will in fact self implode finishing up seventh.
Man City will Sack Pellegrini for finishing a lowly fourth place and having to qualify for Champions league footie next year.
Harry Kane signs for Real Madrid and declares he really is a gooner after all.
Oh and Watford get promoted - but that's a whole different story !!!
So Silverware to the Emirates this year?
