Things were so interesting today with Watford scoring a 2-0 win over Middlesborough with Troy Deeney scoring 20 goals three seasons in a row …
… that I almost didn’t notice that Manchester Citeh will be going into the Old Toilet looking up at the team from “almost Manchester”. What has happened to a team full of aging stars that want to leave, aren’t any good, or just don’t have the class of younger talent, backed with the most overrated goalkeeper in the league? One would think that with all they’ve spent they would be giving James Boring Milner away. They should be begging him to stay like they did Frank Lampard for the last few months. With financial fair play it’s hard to know what Citeh are going to do to rebuild. They can offload players at a loss and start again – or can they? What a mess. Worst defense of the title since Leeds back in 1992-3 – if that counts as a Premier League defense.
But what about them Eagles? Looks like Pardew should be manager of the year for keeping the inept Newcastle and Crystal Palace up in the same year! Of course some say that this win was because Citeh confused their shirts for Barcelona and gave up before the game even started.
Perhaps next year they can look for a new manager current odds are:
- Pep Guardiola 5-1
- Alan Pardiola 14-1
Leicester City must be gutted this week to final win and then see the three teams above them win. Well this day they have some luck because some of their competition for last are playing each other. It’s hard to go for QPR away but I’ve been insistent that Villa will go down since week 1 and that’s the only prediction I made that will come true*
|Aston Villa||0-1||Queens Park Rangers
*It should be noted that I actually had Chelsea to win the title but I hate Mourinho so much I couldn’t even bear to put them top so I put them down lower. This year is practice for next year anyway – I’m developing formula for predictology that I will institute next year to get my prediction percentage up to around something better than crap (which is where I am right now).
