    Week 29

    Euro Cup 2nd Knockout Round Leg 2:

    Man City
    Tottenham

    Another good performance from Man City and a much better one from Spurs sees them both through to the Quarter Finals and they are still managing to avoid one another with Spurs facing off against Lille and Man City against Hannover.

    FA Cup 6th Round:

    Premiership:

    Game of the Week
    Having won their previous two games, climbing out of the relegation zone in the process, Villa had a great chance to pick up another win against a Newcastle team that has been sinking down the table for the last few months, and win they did. They were in control for pretty much the entire game and even though they did back off in the final 10 minutes they had already built up enough of a lead to ensure they walked away with the win.

    Game of the Week
    First is a game that Man City had to win in order to stand any chance of winning the title and the obstacle in their way is Liverpool, a side who have spent pretty much the whole season moving between 4th and 6th, but recently have been creeping up on the top 3. Today however they showed that they can really play with the best of them and absolutely trampled Man City, with Adebayor taking his tally to 7 goals in 9 games for Liverpool. This sees Liverpool move up to second while Man City drop down to fourth, surely their title challenge is now over.

    Lovely stuff. Tight defeat to Chelsea and nice home win over Sunderland.

    Hit the big 40 in points so time to look upwards. 6th place- 6 points away - why not!

    Come on Stoke.


    My thoughts on title and relegation:

    Champions: Liverpool
    Relegated: Wigan, Blackburn and Norwich.

    Kris, I think you're going to be wrong about Liverpool. I reckon it will be:

    Champions - Tottenham
    Relegated - Blackburn, Bolton, Aston Villa

    Oh great, we don't even take advantage of Spurs drawing, and now we are third. Hopefully we can catch up and atleast keep a Top 3 spot for direct CL place next season.

    I'm with you! lol

    As for the title race, my heart says Liverpool, my brain says Spurs, but in truth, i'd be happy as long as Man U don't win! lol

    Relegation: Norwich, Bolton, Blackburn

    I'm hoping Wigan don't go down, we seem to score every game but the defence just leeks goals (I'll be on lookout for defenders in the summer )

    Adebayor is fantastic ! Scoring against his former club.

    About the predictions I think Spurs will win if they don't dip in their form. If they do dip the title will be ours or one of the Manchester clubs.

    Blackburn is surely relegated, Wigan, Norwich, Bolton and Aston Villa. If I have to pick 2 I would pick Wigan and Norwich to relegate.

    Sorry, Chelsea have been playing their champions league games a week later than the other two sides and I obviously forgot about it for their 2nd leg. Will post it when I get back from work later.

    Fantastic result against Real Madrid, Chelsea and Fulham. Then we give it away with us losing at Sunderland and drawing against West Brom. Our home form needs improving. Too many draws in my opinion.

    But into the next round of the FA Cup. Please can we win something this season lol

    Week 31

    Champions League Quarter Final Leg 1:

    Man Utd
    Arsenal

    Euro Cup Quarter Final Leg 1:

    Tottenham
    Man City

    Premiership:

    Saturday
    Sunday
    Monday

    Game of the Week 1 - Game of the Week 2
    First game I've chosen is the Manchester Derby. Man City won 2-1 at Old Trafford earlier in the season but with both sides now in with a real chance of winning the title I expected a close game, but it ended up being anything but. Man City didn't have much of the ball but they made great use of it when they did get it and United just had no answer to the attacking force that Man City possess.
    Then I have picked Aston Villa against Wigan. Villa have found some great form recently, winning 3 of their last four games and knocking Man City out of the FA cup a couple of weeks ago. Wigan on the other hand have only picked up 2 points in the league since the end of January and look like they will definitely be going down unless they do something dramatic between now and the end of the season, so you would expect Aston Villa to be able to pick up the 3 points today. As it turned out, they didn't disappoint, however I wasn't expecting them to win as convincingly as they did. This result sees Villa move up to 14th, 6 points clear of the relegation zone, and rapidly moving towards safety.

    Premiership:

    Saturday
    Monday

    Game of the Week 1 - Game of the Week 2
    First game is Aston Villa again, this time at home against Q.P.R, and the reason I have chosen this game is simple. I think it is fantastic that after playing so poorly for the first 26 games of the season that they have turned things around so well. This game against Q.P.R was another outstanding performance, creating chances at will and without giving Q.P.R any real chances. They held the ball well, kept their defence solid but showed some real attacking ability too. If only they had played like this all the way through the season they could well be pushing for a European place about now.
    Next up is another game involving Q.P.R, but this time they are visiting Wigan. Q.P.R are pretty much safe, however Wigan are in real trouble. On a dreadful run of form, down at the bottom of the table, and in dire need of some points, and today they absolutely deserved to take home the three points. Yes they gave Q.P.R quite a few good chances, but they also created plenty and while their finishing was a bit wayward, when they did manage to get shots on target they made the most of them. A few more wins like this and they could well be safe in 5 weeks time.

    My Predicted League Table

    1st - Tottenham - 81 points
    2nd - Man Utd - 77 points
    3rd - Man City - 76 points
    4th - Liverpool - 72 points

    15th - West Brom - 41 points
    16th - Swansea - 41 points
    17th - Norwich - 35 points
    18th - Bolton - 35 points
    19th - Wigan - 34 points
    20th - Blackburn - 28 points
    *Bolton relegated on goal difference*

    So, according to my best guesses at what the results will be from these games I actually get the top and bottom of the table looking exactly the same as they do right now! That wasn't planned, it just turned out that way when I added it all up.

    Still think Norwich for the drop! Been edging closer to the bottom for a while now.

    Good luck all you guys involved in an interesting run in.

    Week 33

    FA Cup Semi Final:

    Aston Villa vs Fulham
    Swansea vs Arsenal

    Yet more good news for Aston Villa, playing well, scoring goals at will, and giving themselves a good chance of some silverware this season. Swansea however must be wondering how they ended up going out here. They made good use of their posession, completely outclassed the Arsenal defence, but their strikers kept on choking and just couldn't find the finish they needed, but while they will be upset by the result it does allow them to put all their focus into league survival.

    League Table

    So, down to 3 games left for most teams, and things are looking a bit more settled. Up at the top of the table it looks like Liverpool have dropped out of the race, with two losses from their last 2 games leaving them 7 points behind Tottenham with only 3 games left to go. The title now looks set to be taken by either Tottenham or Man City. They have vastly superior goal difference to anybody else, are 3 & 2 points respectively ahead of 3rd place and both have a game in hand. They are due to play each other next, what a key game that could be.

    Down at the bottom of the table it looks like Blackburn are set to be relegated, 4 points away from safety and with Liverpool & Man Utd yet to play, it doesn't look good. Wigan are looking in big trouble too, with Chelsea to play, followed by Sunderland away, I don't think that they will be able to get out of the relegation zone in the next 3 games. The final spot I think is now down to either Bolton, Norwich or Swansea. I do believe that Swansea will be safe though, they should pick up 3 points in their next game against Blackburn and I fancy them to pick up a win over Norwich in the 37th game, although if it comes down to the final day then they will have their work cut out against Liverpool. Personally I would bet on Bolton to end up in 18th place though, their final 3 games against Fulham, Newcastle and Wolves will all be scrappy fixtures but I could easily imagine them not picking up anything in those games, while I think that Norwich could pick up a win against Q.P.R in their next game and will take a point at home against Everton in their final game.

    I knew commenting on Blackburn would come back to haunt me. Poor home defeat to them drops us to 14th, all of a sudden the thoughts this has been a decent season are starting to dwindle.

    With Liverpool and Man Utd to play the end of season cant come quick enough.

    That's just have been a disaster. A 4-0 loss and a 2-0 loss. One to Arsenal and One to WESTBROM. Disappointing.

    Disappointed with the draw against Wolves but a good point against Tottenham.

    Going to be an exciting race for the title.

    QPR still taking the game to many of the big clubs! 2-2 draw with Tottenham's a brilliant result. From possible relegation to the top half of the table since January! Buzzin'

    In the FA Cup final which is fantastic. Looking doubtful against Barcelona but anything could happen. We are looking strong in the premier league aswell with a great run of form. Let's hope we can keep this going

    Week 35

    Champions League Semi Final Leg 2:

    Man Utd
    Arsenal

    Euro Cup Semi Final Leg 2:

    Man City vs Tottenham

    Lazio won the other semi final so it will be a Man City vs Lazio final.

    Premiership:

    Wednesday
    Saturday
    Sunday

    Game of the Week 1 - Game of the Week 2 - Game of the Week 3

    First up is a game that I believed would decide the title. Tottenham against Man City at White Hart Lane. Going into this game Man City were a point ahead and so a win for either side could really change the look of the table. As it turned out Spurs easily had enough to overcome Man City, pushing them aside with relative ease, with Neymar scoring a brace to take his league tally for the season into the twenties.

    Second up we have Fulham against Bolton. Fulham have slumped after a fantastic first half of the season but have never been in any real danger, however Bolton are in real trouble right now. Before this game they were level on points with 18th placed Norwich but had a very slim goal difference advantage. This result has changed it up though, Norwich may have lost 3-1 in their match but this thumping sees Bolton drop behind them on goal difference.

    Lastly I picked Aston Villa hosting Swansea. Villa were looking pretty safe before this game while Swansea could still do with another win or two under their belt to guarantee safety, but I believe that this game would easily go Villa's way, they have been having a great run recently, are full of confidence, and I believe they have a much better squad, but you can never really predict the result of a football match can you. This was a typically scrappy end of season game, both sides were pretty evenly match and either could have won it in the end, but it swung Swanseas way in the end.

    League Table

    So, I think that things are looking far more settled now. In my eyes Tottenham have done enough to secure the title, 4 points ahead of Man City and their last 3 games are no more difficult than those faced by Man City. Obviously the top four are now decided too, however there is still a battle for 5th & 6th between Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal. I think Everton will take a place as their final 2 games are against Norwich & Q.P.R, both games that they should easily win and with Arsenal having a game in hand and Chelsea having to play Spurs next I think that Chelsea will be missing out on the top 6 this year.

    Down at the bottom I believe that Blackburn & Wigan are both down. Blackburn are playing Liverpool & Man Utd to end the season and so I don't think will move from 32 points, and I can't see Wigan beating Sunderland or getting more than a point from West Brom, so I'm pretty sure those two will end up in 19th & 20th. 18th is now down to 3 teams in my mind. Norwich & Bolton look the most likely candidates, and with Norwich having a slightly easier last 2 games I think that they will be ahead of Bolton. The last team that I think could still be relegated is Aston Villa. They did have a pretty great run, picking up a huge number of points since hte start of February, and they have a game in hand, but when you consider that their final 3 games are away against Man City, away against Tottenham and home against Chelsea, and that they have an FA Cup Final against Arsenal between the City & Spurs games, I could easily see them failing to pick up a single point from their final 3 games, so while it is unlikely that both Bolton & Norwich would take 4 points between now and the end to move above Villa is unlikely, it is always a possibility.

    Congrats to Spurs, it looks like the title is yours. Hopefully we can keep our 3rd place(as a minimum) and keep a direct CL spot. Psyched about a "revenge" CL final against Barca though, atleast the European campaign has been better than the League one, and we might still get the most important title of the season.

    Well done to tottenham, looks like theyve got the win. For my Wolves team, 47 points and 10th plac with 2 games left, absolutely delighted with their season, hopefully can secure that top half finish.

    Depending how the F.A Cup final turns out, it could be a battle for 5th, so could be even more interest. I see Arsenal winning the Cup, so they'll get a European place, but if they finish 5th aswell I believe Aston Villa may get the Europa League place through the cup. Could be wrong though. Saying that Villa could manage to win the cup and then two out of Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea will definitly miss out.

    Week 36

    FA Cup Final:

    Aston Villa vs Arsenal

    So two cups and two winners who didn't really do anything special in the league, Sunderland with the League Cup and Aston Villa showing some real class to overcome Arsenal in the FA Cup Final. Great result for a team that have been struggling all season long.

    Premiership:

    Wednesday
    Saturday
    Sunday

    Game of the Week 1 - Game of the Week 2 - Game of the Week 3

    Game 1 & 2 come together this time. Last week I said that I thought Spurs had the league won, but once again they were their own worst enemies, this time away to Chelsea they were the best team by far but their finishing let them down and they gave up 3 points when they should have been leaving with a win. Man City on the other hand made no such mistakes, while they did make their game against Aston Villa more difficult than it needed to be thanks to some poor defending they still did enough to take the win and close the gap at the top to only a single point.

    My 3rd choice was picked because it essentially seals Blackburns fate unless they beat Man Utd by at least a couple of goals in their final game. They were actually very unlucky here, when Glen Johnson got himself sent off Blackburn really picked up their game and if it wasn't for a great performance by Reina in the Liverpool goal I think they could easily have picked up a win here today.

    League Table

    I'm going to have to stop trying to predict this season, every time I think something is bound to happen I'm wrong. With the gap at the top down to a single point I'm not even going to say who I think will win now, both sides have a fairly simple final 2 games with Spurs playing Villa and then Sunderland, both at home, while Man City play Villa at home and Q.P.R away. So both teams should walk away with 6 points from their final 2 games so this league will probably end up going to the team that simply makes the least mistakes in the next 10 days.

    The relegation places are still up for grabs too. Blackburn look certain to go down, 3 points away from safety with only a visit to Old Trafford remaining, I can't see them getting anything there and that would seal their fate. Wigan host West Brom in their final match and I personally believe that they will get 3 points from that match, which given that Bolton have to travel to Wolves and Norwich at home against Everton, could be enough to leapfrog the pair of them to safety. Everybody else is pretty much safe now, only Villa are in danger and even then it will only be if Norwich & Bolton both win their final game while Villa fail to get anything in their last 2 games.

    The final update of the season will be done this evening once I get home from work.

    Also, anybody that is in charge of a club that gets relegated will be offered the chance to take over one of the newly promoted clubs if they want to, although this will be done on a first come first serve basis and priority will go to new people if they request a new club first.

    I'm also pondering having this continue with relegated clubs, so you can still play the game in pretty much the same way even if your club goes down to the Championship, although the updates will be done in less detail for you.

    I think it's a good idea to let the teams relegated to continue if you're up for it (It'll be more work for you and you've obviously got quite a bit already). It would add yet another edge to the game I reckon. Plus, it would help the other teams still in the Prem to get better deals for the relegated teams players haha.

    Disappointing couple of games. Losing the FA Cup final adds to a very disappointing season and one we need to look back on if we are to improve. Losing to Fulham almost ends our hopes of europe so less cash will be spent on players. Hopefully next season, if we are not in Europe we can concentrate on the Premier League and do better as a result.

    Week 37

    Champions League Final:

    Barcelona vs Man Utd

    Euro Cup Final:

    Lazio vs Man City

    Premiership:

    Wednesday
    Friday
    Sunday

    Game of the Week 1 - Game of the Week 2

    Game 1 this week was a vital game for Man City. With Spurs having won two days before, only a win for City would keep them in the title race. Away to Fulham you would have expected them to taken a fairly easy win, however they just seemed to Choke. Fulham walked all over them and could easily have won by a much greater margin if not for some great saves by Joe Hart. So, title race over before the final day, close but no cigar for Man City this year.

    Next up is Man Utd against Blackburn. Going into this game it looked almost certain that Blackburn would be relegated, they needed Norwich, Bolton & Wigan all to fail to pick up any points and for Norwich & Bolton to concede a couple of goals each to reduce their goal difference. Even more unlikely than those things happening though, they needed to beat Man Utd at Old Trafford. If I was a betting man I would bet my house on Blackburn being relegated however apparently nobody told the Blackburn squad that. Despite spending almost the entire game on the back foot an absolutely heroic defensive performance and some fantastic work by Paul Robinson, combined with some good work from set pieces, saw them walk away with a very unlikely 3 points.

    League Table

    No real surprises at the top of the table, for a while it has obviously going to be either Spurs or Man City so I'm not surprised that Spurs ended up on top of the pile.

    The bottom of the table is a completely different story though. Blackburn have looked set for relegation for a long time now, but somehow managed to leapfrog 3 teams on the final day to secure their premiership status for another year. I have no idea how they managed it, but I'm pretty sure that if they leave it this late again then there will officially be no nails left unbitten in Blackburn!

    Past Positions

    *I'm only showing these for certain teams, not for all of them*

    The Struggling Giants
    The Late Risers

    So, season over. I will be doing a stats update soon, probably tomorrow morning, and will then spend a few days trying to recruit new players for the next season before getting it started.

    What an end to the season. We lose two and drop to 15th, our lowest for a long long time. Hmm

    Cant believe the top 2 both lost - amazing

    And down at the bottom really could not be any closer- how Blackburn have pulled that off....

    Two massive clubs without Europe at all, i wonder how many managers will be leaving over the coming weeks!

    Ah crap, bottom of the league...

    Been a great season though, thanks mack! As for Man U, losing the final of the champs league to an own goal must hurt! And congrats to spurs for winning the league, having been top for most of the season, think you deserved it

    Would like to continue in this game with 1 of the promoted teams or team with no owner if there aren't enough new peeps to fill up the places, or carrying on with Wigan in championship (not sure if this would be too much for you to do though)

    To bad we fizzled out at the end there but only loosing the title by 1 point in the end was a superb performance, overturning that 9-10 point gap was pretty good, if only we hadnt drawn as many games, seriously for title contenders to draw 11 games is just way to many, ecspecially against the lower teams we should have been beating, Im very happy with the Euro Cup win though!!

    Bring on Next season and Cheers to Mack for a great game so far!!!

    Cheers Mack, great first season, really enjoying it. Top half finish for my wolves, very happy with that. Can't believe Chelsea and Arsenal have missed out on Europe, as a Spurs fan that has made me very happy, along with Spurs winning the league. Now to try and join them up there with some decent signings

    Damn not a good season. No Europe means less money. Next season is the start of the rebuilding at Arsenal. We need to return back to the glory days again. We came close to winning 3 trophies this season but near the end we cocked it up.

    Fantastic job Mack in running this. Can't wait to sign new players

    Breaking News!

    Following Wigan's last day relegation , Wigan have announced that current chairman Jason Powell has sold his share in the club. Wigan fans have welcomed the news saying he brought bad luck when he took over 1 year ago.

    It is rumoured that he still wants to be involved in Premier League football and is exploring the possibilty of taking over another club. Having ended Wigan's 7 year spell in the Premiership in his first year in charge, surely fans from other teams will be hoping Jason doesn't take over their club!
