Sweet shots and nice seats!

TA always brings it. Too bad the men on the field couldn't finish.

So.....The EPL needed play offs to make an exciting finish to the season, did it?

Yeah, they had quite a few opportunities. You could see Boyd getting frustrated with the rest of the team. There were a couple times where he set it up perfectly but nobody was there. I saw them pull up a few times instead of sprinting for an open ball. Chara had an obvious one. Didn't look like he was injured, but he totally let up on a ball that would have been his.

Defense, however was a completely different story. They played MUCH better. That may be because Jewsbury was moved back to D. They had much more energy and were anticipating better. Perkins had a couple sweet saves and got some good backup.

Based on how many plays he held up and how many shots he personally stopped, I'd say moving Jewsbury back was one of the best strategic moves I've seen Spencer (and many other managers) make.

Touché - La liga as well ended pretty well with the Classico.

The only thing I still don't like is that essentially these leaves have a couple of good teams (I know epl perhaps is more populated at the top than spain) play offs won't necessarily fix that though. Still damn fun to watch

Now, I need to find me a mls team to make my own...too much food soccer but without a home team or one that I gravitate towards its tough to get into it

I almost feel sorry for them.

Almost.

So... I wouldn't take too much from this game. Columbus have been awful so far this year, and only have 20 healthy players right now. Our starting center backs are the third unit, and up top we were running a rookie alongside Renteria, who we are converting to a wing midfielder. Oh, and our GK is a career backup. We're a M*A*S*H unit.

If we have another injury up top, and get Marshall, James, or Mendes back, I think we might actually try Williams out as a striker.

What a mental end to the Premier League!

Citeh steal it with 2 goals in stoppage time.

Arsenal barely secure 3rd and now Spurs are at the whim of the the CL result next weekend. As a Gooner I'm fully backing Chelsea to win now!

Man I'm buzzing right now!
