Manchester City travel to Brighton knowing that victory would guarantee them a second successive championship while Wolves, having already drawn at Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United and won at Tottenham and Everton, go to Anfield looking to play spoiler to Liverpool's hopes of last-day drama.

Still on the brightside Jodie Comers Dad works for Everton.
I might get to meet her.

That would for be a life time, basically in permanent shadow, aside from our golden years, mid eighties. They, took the our chance to rise, away, the rest is history.
The luck, they get, every standard offence for diving, cheating, feigning, and much more goes uncontested, and they never get fined, aside to Mr Eds gallop on to the field, when JP, goofed.
I hope and pray that they aren't celebrating tomorrow night.

I won't be happy until the final whistle has blown and City have secured a win.
Strange things happen with that lot over the park. You couldnt be confident about City not having a player sent off or being on the wrong end of a really bad decision.
If the Shite score first the City players will know within seconds and the pressure on them will become intense.
It's gonna be a long day

Ain't gonna happen though. COYB FTRS!!

Rob, I'll still be expecting the Blue Moon refrain from your phone at WHL today.
Yes, if "they" win, the city will be unbearable. I might "get off at Edge Hill" on the way back, as they say.

“Im giving you a chance for me not to pull the trigger and to live. You can pick from one of the following results: A Brighton win, a draw or a Man City win today. If you are right, I will let you live. Make your pick”
Which result would you pick?

We are on a decent run of form though, so we are not without a chance so here's hoping.
A win for Everton would be a nice surprise but a draw would be a good performance in my opinion.
Have no fear 'them' wont win the League, you could have a saver though at 11/2 if you think they might.

The Player, Signing, Goal, Disappointment of the season, and a mark out of 10 for the manager and team over the season.
Josh Sexton of The Anfield Wrap, I presume a Liverpool fan site, said this:
Goal of the season: Divock Origi against Everton. There have been some wonder goals scored by this team in 2018-19, but in terms of importance an almost forgotten man may have claimed first, second and third spot. His brace against Barca has sent Liverpool to Madrid, and his goal against Newcastle has allowed us to keep dreaming until the final day, but his goal against Everton has the added spice of being a 96th-minute winner against our closest rivals.
Disappointment of the season: Everton 0 Liverpool 0. Staying on the the Merseyside derby theme, and without wanting to go back on what was said in my opening gambit, the goalless draw at Goodison in early March was a sickener.
And there's me thinking they no longer concern themselves with 'little ole us'.

I honestly couldn't give a flying shite about them. Whether Mina, Walcott and Tosun can do something in this game is far more important to me.

Sky sports will be sick, the horrible biased bastards.

No gloating over Liverpool finishing second, just glad they did so. I didnt have to listen to their armchair supporters gloating over them winning the Premier League.

Me personally, I'd rather starve than win money betting on them twats.
On another thread today, a lad has just lost his old man. Well looks like Mr Walsh was smiling down on us giving us the result true blues wanted.
I'm sorry for the language, I really am, but I've had enough gloating and smug remarks off them lately to last a lifetime. I asked my old dad this morning to smile on me and make me happy at 5. He kept his side of the bargain. Thanks, Dad, love you. Right, I'm going to get absolutely arseholed.
37 Posted 12/05/2019 at 18:00:38
The siren and Z-Cars super charged the derby atmosphere and we stopped them winning the league. That's some lovely schadenfreude right there!

And my post at #30.
What's your point? I'm pleased as fuck — aren't you?
44 Posted 12/05/2019 at 20:41:23
My point was that I was backing up what you said about being wrong, when you posted several times that they'd win both. I'm guessing it was a superstitious "If I say they'll win both, they'll win fuck all!" I hope so anyway, and I hope you're wrong again, but right about........ oh you know what I mean.
The celebratory Desperados are taking effect! 🥂🍻🍻🏆
45 Posted 12/05/2019 at 21:42:20
I'm 49 but got a right bollocking off my dad for saying they'd win the league.
I have a habit of messing things up – marriage, work etc – so I had to say it for it be proven wrong.
If you know what I mean!

Wolves supporters, basking in the Anfield sunshine, mocked their counterparts by cheering City's goals and singing the name of former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling -- now a key man at City -- before rubbing it in by chanting, "you nearly won the league!"
Good on ya Wolves!

The unbridled ecstasy when news of the City goals game in. The Blues singing for a Spurs win in the Champions League Final. And to top it all, all those red shirts in Liverpool, when we got back to Lime Street.

Happy you had such a great day.
It was a good day to be Blue in the main.
What a trip to London, to that new, beautiful stadium, seeing Everton play decently well and gain a point off a CL final team.
And celebrating with your Blue Bros and Sis's when City won the league over them.
Great day for you, and I hope you enjoyed it, as I'm sure all away supporters did. Must have been one for the ages. Good man, good day. Well played, sir.

Relief and at least a few months off from "this is our year"
I think it's been said before that it's much harder to win the Champions League than the Champions League. I've been disappointed really at the standard of play in the Champions League. Ajax aren't that good. Neither are Spurs.
Now it's time for Brands to earn his money. Lots of shouts on who we should sign. Rondon might be good for us. Could we nick a squad player like Shakiri or Mahrez maybe Lucas Moura? I can't scout for Everton so I have to leave it to Brands and his team to scour Europe and the World.
Only the top 2 have a better finish to the season apparently... though that includes Fulham and Newcastle and us playing Spurs today after an early goal would've normally seen us squander a few more. We didn't. We have the basis of a good team. Finishing no better than last year but the future looks so much better. That's it then. Until next time.
Come on Spurs !!

Today I felt that he came through for me, justice prevailed and a great dark cloud was lifted from me, allowing me to really enjoy the 'Blue Moon' beer which tasted so very sweet. Thanks, Dad.
Only wish I was at the game in London today.

Like Brent I had a great day, at Tottenham, yesterday but I hope that next season we'll be more concerned with results affecting us, and at the right end of the table.
63 Posted 13/05/2019 at 12:26:14
Both Shankly and Paisley were adamant that their key target should be to win your domestic league – as that was the true test of your calibre as a team. I recall hearing both of them say this in numerous occasions.
64 Posted 13/05/2019 at 13:17:42
Getting back to Everton, it would be great if we could retain our best players and then add some more quality to them. It's looking likely though that we are going to lose some key players which is going to knock us back a notch or two. Then, of course, it's all down to who we can get as replacements.
In my opinion, the club is a more attractive destination for players now, they should surely see the ambition and the increased spending when the club do enter the transfer market.

They are giving it to Citys players right now, saying they lack class for singing a song that obviously comes from the terraces, but what else would you expect from the fans who are outraged at everything, but ashamed of nothing?
They might be easily offended, but you cant re-write the past though, especially when it was only 15 months ago that they attacked the Man City coach on its way to anfield, but at least it wasnt as bad as the one in South America, which lead to the game getting played in Spain!
68 Posted 15/05/2019 at 17:01:16
69 Posted 15/05/2019 at 22:17:21
very irritating. And their moaning when they lose, and criticism of a club like City with a truly great team, make them look foolish. And the Daily Mash article is dead funny. They have a whole list of similar articles about the Shite, equally funny.

I resent the bitter blue shout, and often tell them I dont think Im bitter because I hate my neighbour, but I would be if I hated half the fuckin street.
Its not them all, Ive met loads of genuine reds, but most of them just want it both ways, and Id give my five year old twins a little smack on the back of the arm for carrying on this way, but I suppose that doesnt mean Id be right either.
74 Posted 17/05/2019 at 18:38:35
Im not quite sure how good he is. Juve are almost to Italy what Celtic are to Scotland, so its not the greatest achievement in football history, but keeping them up there season after season is easier said than done.
Europe is the greater indicator. Hes punched above his weight in Europe as until this season, Juve were not exactly on a level playing field with the best of the Premier League, yet he got them to finals and semi-finals.
Hes obviously walking as theyve spent big this year and come up far short of expectations in the champions league, especially with Ronaldo who is now in decline. Hes got another season left as one of the very best in the world, I think, so maybe Ronaldo wants a different manager to realise his dream of winning the CL from a third different league.
Anyway, whats the ramifications for us? Nothing directly, but it starts a Merry-go-round. Man Utd miss out on a guy who would be favourite to replace Solskjaer (who wont be sacked this summer). Madrid wont want him. So Barca? Koeman is getting that job, yeah WTF indeed. None of the big six will get him with the exception of Chelsea. So not Spain, not Italy (he wouldnt join a rival of his beloved Juve), PSG maybe? Bayern?
So hes going to go to PSG, Bayern or Chelsea. Chelsea is unlikely as they have a transfer ban, Allegri is a cheque book manager, whereas Sarri is the opposite and would be good with a ban. PSG look likely to stick with Tuchel. And I doubt Allegri will want another one horse race, which would rule out Bayern too.
So my money would be on him watching Utd, Arsenal (who wanted him ahead of Emery), and Chelsea and coming in to the first to sack their manager.
Allegri, if he gets the Chelsea job would certainly keep Zouma. He fits his profile of defender and Allegri uses a back five and so would want every defender he can get.
