- Brendan Rodgers drops Celtic hint as he calls club 'iconic' and says he wants to get back into management this summer Well, it could work. SPL isn't a hard league if you're a Celtic manager. Now that Rangers are back in the SPL, the league will be interesting to watch again next season. Rodgers isn't a man to give money to spend, or even his own staff (he'll turn on them to save his own skin, it seems, if his time at LFC is anything to go by). His time at Liverpool should damn him in certain ways, really
- Burnley promoted to Premier League! Sam Vokes' winner beats QPR to seal multi-million pound return Well done, Burnley! With the same manager that took them down, he got them through the Championship and they're back in the PL again. With lessons learnt, I'm sure
- Meet the Leicester WAGs behind the Premier League champions If you want to meet the WAGs have a looky look. Mostly identikit, like most WAGS are, tbh. Bra strap length straightened hair, UK size 8 (if not pregnant), and white (or pretty pale). To be fair, save Vardy's gf, most of them seem to have sensible jobs (midwifery, business woman, stock analyst), and thankfully, seem to be low key.
Where can each club finish. Soton are doing well to be locked into European places. I'll be mad if they flop it again next season though. You too, West Ham
Chelsea 2- 2 Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham bottled it, straight up. If they won this match, they would have been in with a slim chance, but LOL nope.
Clattenburg lost this game, yo. Like, threw it away. You know it's a heated derby, you know what's on the line and ... did nowt
Fair play to both sides, though, I enjoyed the match up to the last twenty minutes when it descended into a melee.
Spurs threw away a 2 goal lead! Once Pochettino put Mason on for Son, it was over. I seent it
Eye gouging, blood throwing ( Dembele, not Costa!), monkey chants (allegedly from the Chelsea fans), the match was LIT. Normally matches tend to be pretty staid, but Pochettino is an Argentine who appreciates a good derby.
Last night, Spurs became the first PL side to have nine players getting yellow. NINE! After five cards on a team, the team can and will incur a fine. It's hilarious, because Spurs were always considered an upper middle class club with no fighting spirit. I mean, they're no Atletico, but eh. Young team, young manager, coming into this game with pressure, they pretty much imploded.
Kane showed his bonafides as a potential captain last night, tbh. When all about him were losing their heads, he kept his. Himself, Alderweireld and Lloris must be fuming! Their side let them down. Also, Mason and Carroll aren't the guys Pochettino wants or needs to next season, tbh. They get bullied too easily in this league
LOL, Spurs had too many draws (last night included!) to have a shot this year. But to dare is to do, I guess. Hmmm, cake
LOL, the England NT camp will be interesting
LOL, Kane did play at Leicester City when he was on loan. To be fair, he didn't pull up any trees there
I really dislike Leicester and what they stand for, but Ranieri is a good egg. It seems that after Greece got beaten by the Faroe Islands, he changed his tactics when he came to Leicester shortly after
I've never understood that phrase
Man, I get Dortmund's pain. It's one thing if the players left the club and the club got some good money out of them (like LFC with Raheem Sterling's sale to Man City), but for the players to leave the club almost on free, it's adding insult to injury
I agree. He has such good timing
Torres on the move. Atletico play Bayern tonight. Come through, Atleti!
Don't let Bayern Munich come between you two!
The Leicester players had a watching party at Jamie Vardy's house, I hear
Some Leicester City fans were outside Vardy's house celebrating the win. Speaking of which, I was listening to the radio the other day, and they were talking about the "North/South divide" in terms of Premier League teams. As in, the reason why teams South of the border (especially those around London) tend to attract the better up and coming players is that everyone wants to live in London. With the exception of Manchester City and Manchester United (considered "The Dubai" of the PL, no one wants to live in Manchester; but the money is too ridiculous to pass up, and the city is okay), it's hard going finding players who want to play up there (for clubs like Newcastle, Sunderland for example), so word has it that some clubs up North are thinking of building training complexes in and around London so the players can live there and then travel to their parent clubs to play matches there. I think it might be good in the long term to try and focus on local talent, tbh. If nowt else, Leicester has shown that defence and long balls (traditional English football characteristics) will keep you up, if not have you win. Also local talent will want to play at a PL club- if they're good enough. Anyway, I digress! Supposedly the Leicester players do live in and around the town, and you see them whilst shopping, etc.
Vardy lives in Melton Mowbray? Who knew?! Decent schools if you go by the Ofsted reports
UGH, Cameron. What a day. I come back from holiday to see Leicester winning the title. My ass should have stayed lost
Some snooker champion held up a flag
Linekaer has said that he'll be presenting MOTD in his undies.

OP: done. For real, I'm done. FFS!
