  1. Saints Fan says:

    Big (final) day in the Championship as well today.

  2. Iancransonsknees says:

    Sunny and warm in Stoke, probably a bit cooler down at the Britannia though. Last home game of the season, they’re filming crowd scenes for the BBC film Marvellous that is shooting at the moment so I’m heading down early for that.

    Hopefully we’re not quite on the beach yet, that said I’d take losing today if it meant Sunderland, Cardiff or Villa going down instead.

    No Shawcross today so it’ll be interesting to see Muniesa at centre back. I’ve been impressed with the glimpses we’ve has, if Barcelona have any more cast offs we’ll give them a go.

    It could be the last time I see Begovic in a Stoke shirt today and if it is whoever he plays for next is getting a world class keeper. Hopefully we’ll get a world class price.

  3. Bo says:

    Hugo Lloris is just too good. Looks like if Manchester United can win all their games we will be playing Saturday matches. I’m kinda ok with that.

  4. francis says:

    Amazing stuff in the Championship!

  5. Chris in Dallas says:

    Sky Sports News should be a great watch tonight.

    Amazing scenes in The Championship.

  6. jtm371 says:

    Lions stay up congrats Smokey your boys defended the Den.

  7. goatslookshifty says:

    Lazy play by Utd today. If Van Gaal does become manager, half this squad will be booted.

    • Smokey Bacon says:

      Van Gaal is nailed on after that. If he is as advertised it’s going to be fun. So many of that squad need a kick up the a*rse.

  8. Guy says:

    Party time at the Britannia. ICK enjoying himself watching Stoke play beautiful football. Probably in shock. :-)

  9. Flyvanescence says:

    Will Sunderland just get relegated?

  10. Guy says:

    Finally. We won’t have to put up with that idiot Vincent Tan next year.

    • goatslookshifty says:

      That being said, he stayed quiet after the managerial change. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just failed to motivate them and keep them up.

    • jtm371 says:

      Amen to that after his pitch invasion after they beat City. I had my fill and then the disgrace in firing MM.

  11. Brian says:

    Goodbye to Cardiff and Fulham. Neither deserved to stay up not only because of how poor they were all season long but even when they could have saved themselves were pathetic.

    Now all eyes on who will join them. Norwich look the most likely with games against Chelsea and Arsenal left but given all the surprises this season who knows.

  12. Evan says:

    Anyone else having trouble with NBC Live Extra? It’s just a blank screen.

  13. Ivan says:

    Timmy Howard, good goalkeeping there, buddy…how is Kun going to score on you from there, in the near angle?

  14. Christopher Harris says:

    Brilliant turn by James Milner to get the across over to Edin Dzeko. First class goal by Manchester City there.

  15. scott says:

    One down two to go! What great game by Dezko, he has came up huge in so many games, especially today. Hart made some great saves, he has been huge since he regained his starting spot. My palms where sweating those last twenty minutes.

    • Flyvanescence says:

      West ham has qpr written all over it.

    • Smokey Bacon says:

      You lads can relax. Today was the tough one. It might have taken what’s left of the air out of Liverpool’s balloon. They might well slip up again on Monday.

      • Flyvanescence says:

        With the lovefest you guys give pulis you would think theyr odds on for the title next season.

        • jtm371 says:

          TP manager of the year what he has done with no money and the only tradition for Palace after promotion relegation follows not this year.

      • jtm371 says:

        Lets have a malice at the Palace on Monday would love to see the Eagles beat Pool.

  16. jtm371 says:

    I told you KUN would come good! :)

    • Flyvanescence says:

      Yep. Then goes off injured again. :-)

      Hope hes back soon we need him in the 93d minute vs west ham.

      • Adam says:

        Oh god, let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. I don’ think I can take it.

        • Flyvanescence says:

          I wouldnt have it any other way. Thats what being a city fan is all about and makes the title that much sweeter.
