Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 38 — Season Finale: Open Thread

premier league ball Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 38 — Season Finale: Open Thread

This is what we’ve all been waiting for… the final day of the season where all of the hard work from the entire season will be rewarded. We’ll find out who will win the Premier League title, who will qualify for the Champions League, who will have to wait to see if fourth is enough to play in the Champions League, and who will be relegated alongside Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers.

And that doesn’t even include the moments of passion, glory and agony that we’ll surely see today in 900 minutes of Premier League acton squeezed into two hours. There’s nothing else like it.

While you’ll be glued to the action on TV, the Internet or — if you’re lucky enough — in-person, feel free to add your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below before, during and after today’s Premier League matches.

We’ll be updating the thread with team news as we get closer to kick-off time, as well as critiquing the TV and Internet coverage of the world’s most popular sports league. Then, at 11.45am ET/4:45pm BST, we’ll be doing a live chat here on EPL Talk to discuss the final results, trophy celebration and more.

Plus, later today, we’ll be releasing an EPL Talk Podcast episode that will analyze today’s Premier League action.
