    Goal scoring forwards/attacking midfielders are always going to get more votes than defenders or defensively minded midfielders. I think Foden is a worthy winner but there were lots of very strong contenders this season.

    Tonali gets another 2 month ban – but suspended this time after voluntarily admitting another 50 incidents while at Newcastle.

    I mean, silly ****er, albeit seems like an addiction thing and knows it was wrong and getting help. The bit that’s making me ‘hmmm’ is the (anti-Newcastle, TBF) twitterers that say the bans’s too light because he was actually betting on Newcastle games. Which I get but he was betting on Newcastle to win!! In a game he has a chance to influence – the horror – I should bloody hope he was trying to influence a Newcastle win.

    “OK lads, we need to up our work rate, put pressure on tbe centrebacks and we can win this game! Plus I’ve got a tenner on it at 4 to 1.”

    I see Clattenburg has left his role at Forest as a referee analyst or whatever it was. Always thought the whole thing was a bit weird

    Guardian article reports that Radcliffe was disgusted by the untidy IT department on his tour of Manu facilities. ZX spectrums containing training plans everywhere.

    How on earth is that a penalty? Havertz trailed his keg looking for contact.

    Had enough, going out on my bike.

    I’ll take that, can’t quite believe we managed to hang on at the end of the season. See you in the premier league!

    It’s getting like basketball where manufacturing contact is a skill of the game.

    It was however a penalty because having left a leg in there, the keeper duly obliged. At least as the laws are written right now.

    I went out in a huff as I don’t like the way the game is going. Looking forward to the rugby now when contact isn’t manufactured.

    Hmmm, watching a bit of the Man City game I’m not sure I want to go up to the premier now!

    Nobody seems to want that fourth spot, do they?

    Spurs are getting absolutely battered at Anfield

    12 minutes in and I’ve already seen quite enough. It’s quite incredible how we keep coming up with new ways to be even worse, week on week.

    My prediction that we’ll lose every game we have left this season is off to a flyer.

    Finishing in the bottom half of the table looks like a very real possibility

    Must be great being a ‘keeper nowadays, just got to make a fuss that you were brutally attacked by a forward and the goal will be disallowed. Bert Trautmann would be astonished.

    It’s a strange end to the season. West Ham, Spurs & United are just falling to pieces.

    To be fair Palace are on a fine run, United have loads of injuries, top four is gone. It’s all part of the process.

    ETH usually warbles some nonsense about the process. I’ve no idea what it is either, unless it’s trying to avoid European football altogether. Hopefully Bruno will want away in the summer and the transition to mid table mediocrity will be complete.

    I’d be wary if my team found Ineos as a backer – Team Sky, Mercedes, Man Utd have all declined after he has come on board

    All these sides falling apart when one or two key players are missing, just shows again what a superb job Eddie and Jason have done at SJP again. To think some fans were suggesting he had to go.

    It’s all gone a bit mad, you can see why Spurs are falling apart, players out of form at the same time as they’ve got the worst run in ever, Villa should be safe for the fourth spot, so it’s all about 5th, Newcastle vs ManU next week should be a big one, but Chelsea are sneaking back in without much notice, they’re above ManU now, who’d have thought that from a few weeks ago!

    Utterly bonkers isn’t it! Thankfully they all seem to have shut up. I reckon Howe and Tindall have done a better job this season than last. There’s an outside chance we could make 5th and a couple of different results we’d be looking at CL again which is nothing short of a miracle given the fact we played with a makeshift midfield for 3 months and the last month with a makeshift defence. If we can hang on to Bruno and Isak in the summer next season could be crazy.

    Yep, Newcastle hitting form again after a very poor mid season. On current form they’ll batter Man United!

    I’m tempted to bet on Newcastle finishing 5th.

    I’m tempted to bet on Newcastle finishing 5th.

    Still unlikely as one of Burnley or Sheffield Utd would have to take points off Spurs (assuming City beating Spurs is a given) and the toon will have to win their remaining games which is probably unlikely too. You might get decent odds though.

    I think that Newcastle have a very good chance of winning the last 3 games.

    That Man Utd display last night was terrible.

    Spurs need 6 points to guarantee 5th, expect City to beat them, so it only takes a draw from one of the relegated teams playing with no pressure.

    Newcastle are 3rd in the form table, Spurs 17th, Man Utd 13th.

    However, Newcastle can be as Spursy as Spurs, so anything could happen……

    After turning off that utter bilge in disgust last night, a different ball game altogether at Chez Binners tonight.

    My long-suffering, Bolton-supporting wife may have something to be happy about. 8 o clock kick off for the Division One playoff second leg for Bolton v Barnsley. They’re 3-1 up from the first leg.

    Would it be tempting fate/the kiss of death to get her some fizzy stuff chilling in anticipation. If I do and that curses it, is that grounds for divorce?

    TBF, Spurs have a very good record against City – they struggle with Sonny.

    However, like most Spurs fans, I’m hoping for a loss to avoid handing the title to that lot down the road.
