Saturday football
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs BRENTFORD (1230)
Two teams fighting to be England’s representative in next season’s UEFA Conference League. What’s that? Home win.

BOURNEMOUTH vs MANCHESTER UNITED (1500)
Barring a Spurs-style balls-up, Man U have got fourth sewn up. The Cherries, meanwhile, have another season in the top flight. That’s some achievement. Away win.

FULHAM vs CRYSTAL PALACE (1500)
There honestly is nothing interesting to say about this fixture. And precious little to choose between the sides. Manuel.

LIVERPOOL vs ASTON VILLA (1500)
A win will see Liverpool take the UEFA spot. But can Villa spoil their already muted celebrations? Why not. Manuel.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS vs EVERTON (1500)
The Toffees are still in deep shit, while their hosts have done well to make it to safety well before the end of the season. Everton will go for it, but have they got what it takes? Manuel.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST vs ARSENAL (1730)
Forest have done incredibly well to put three points between themselves and the bottom three. But goal difference isn’t on their side and they’ve got a tricky trip to Palace to end the season with. Arsenal’s title aspirations, which were so much more than aspirations just a few weeks ago, have gone up in smoke. The Forest groundsman has been fined and suspended by the FA for being naughty before a game in November. Nobody’s safe any more: Doris the tea lady, take note. That aside, this is a very interesting fixture and with home advantage you have to fancy Forest to be in with a shout for a point. Manuel.


*SUNDAY*

WEST HAM UNITED vs LEEDS UNITED (1330)
BFS returns to East London and a heartfelt welcome surely awaits. But things don’t look good for his side, who are in urgent need of points and goals from today and Spurs a week later. We, on the other hand, have things of an altogether higher magnitude to occupy us. Depending on other results, Leeds could be relegated today. Expect a battle. Manuel.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs SOUTHAMPTON (1400)
Realistically, the Seagulls have the Conference League to aim for. They should make it with a game in hand and a point advantage over Spurs and Villa. The Saints may want to give their youths a taste of top flight football. It may not come again. Home win.

MANCHESTER CITY vs CHELSEA (1600)
A win today will give City the title in their last home game of the season. They’ll be tears in north London. Home win.


*MONDAY*

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs LEICESTER CITY (2000)
Speaking of tears, there’s every chance that the Foxes will have their departure from the Premier League confirmed this evening. Home win.


*WEDNESDAY*

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs MANCHESTER CITY (2000)
The Seagulls entertain the champions. Expect an exhibition of football from arguably the world’s greatest club side. Away win.

Re: Saturday football

Funnily enough am just watching something called High Performance Podcast on BT Sport 3 where Jake Humphrey & another bloke are interviewing the Brighton CEO Paul Barber.
Very impressive guy talking about their strategy & methods & interesting that it started with their goal to thrive in the Premier league playing ENTERTAINING football.
Was the main reason they let Chris Hughton go.
As has been mentioned they have people lined up to replace everyone of importance. Barber reckoned they tracked the 20-25 most important people at the club and had a replacement in the building or identified ..... David Weir for Dan Ashworth, Caicedo for Bissouma, Estupian for Cucurella , DeZerbi for Potter etc etc

Karren Brady is nominally our CEO .... chalk and cheese. She could never have this conversation

4-1 With any luck THEY would be the worst team. In London come Sunday.

Re: Saturday football
Amazed that Frank left a quality player like Felix out of his starting line up. I reckon he likes making ‘controversial’ and unexpected decisions.

Re: Saturday football
So if it stays 4-0 we win and they lose we go above even if same goal difference as we have scored more goals

Blimey

4-0. We could be on for 12th at this rate!

Re: Saturday football
Dive by Fernandes there. The slightest contact and he flops, even though he was in a great position to shoot anyway. Such a prick.

Brighton finding gems is not a knack, it’s about having a proper system in place. They will know who to go out and buy as soon as a player in any position leaves the club including the manager. They will also have a backup and a third choice already identified to.

Re: Saturday football
If Man U can stick another couple past the most embarrassing team in London we still have a chance of finishing 12th!

Re: Saturday football
Shambolic sort of game with passing and shooting
Lampard doing something amazing .... making a team with endless internationals look like Wigan Athletic.
2-0 down and looks like going home again with nothing except his dick in his hand.

Re: Saturday football
What is it with all these slipping over? Seems to be happening a lot lately. Are they overwatering the pitches or something?

Re: Saturday football
I don’t like Man Utd, but this is beautiful so far. Chelsea looking completely inept, Lampard out of his depth and Antony crying and getting stretchered off.

Re: Saturday football
Chelsea behind again at Old Trafford
Lampard may have a decent claim to being the worst manager in Premier League history. Especially with a squad that cost around a billion quid

Re: Saturday football
As much as I don't want to see Rice go, we should embrace the fact that we can develop players and use the money to get better ones.

I don't think Brighton or Brentford feel like their world would fall apart if they sold any of their players for 100m.

But we kind of think we will be finished somewhat..

It's a bit odd. I suppose it's because we haven't been that good with transfers in general that we are worried we won't do anything good with the Rice money? Rather than just that Rice will be sold,

Also a hangover of seeing so many of our top players in 1 generation win titles outside of West Ham. (Carrick,cole,Kanoute etc)

The Ghost of Sven 11:11 Thu May 25
Re: Saturday football
Yes, Brighton certainly have the knack of finding gems and getting top price.
You can imagine DeZerbi will be in big demand and these small teams with the golden touch always have a period where their luck runs out ... Southampton, Swansea etc
That said Brighton & Brentford seem to be well run clubs who are embarrassing many others with massively bigger resources


Arne Slot (is no slut):
"I have been hearing a lot of rumors going around about other clubs' interest in me," explained the 44-year-old. "Although I am thankful, my wish is to stay at Feynoord and continue working on what we created last year."

Slot reportedly held crunch talks over his future earlier this week, although he has since clarified that those talks only surrounded negotiating renewed terms with the Dutch giants. "There is not - and there has not been - transfer conversations,"

apparently the feyenoord boss, slot, has put out a statement that he's going to sign a new contract with them. another one blanks levy 😂

They sold Ben White for £50m too... and £25m for Trossard... plus about £12m for Dan Burn (which by itself pretty much covered the cost of Mitoma, Caicedo and MacAllister)

Then there's the quality of the football they currently play. Not a backwards step. Ever

Re: Saturday football
Was a foul tho. Just wished one day we could play like Brighton. They were a joy to watch.
