I'm delighted to see garbage'y Stoke go down. I wish West Ham was joining them. At this point I'm just rooting for Southampton to stay up. I guess if I had to pick I'd say send Huddersfield down and keep Swansea up since their Welsh rivals Cardiff City will be joining us in the Premier leauge again next season.

Tiny Championship update: Preston finished 7th, missing out on a playoff spot by just 2 points :frown: It'll be Fulham v Derby County and Aston Villa v Boro to see who joins Wolves and Cardiff in being promoted. Out of those four I'd say go Fulham because I like Craven Cottage.

I’d prefer Villa, but Chelsea fans finding a way to get 10k fans into the cottage again would be fun.

Also maybe Europa will be fun. Ugh :-/

I also am not looking forward to another managerial search.
I can assure you there is nothing fun about Europa until the final. Playing Thursday-Sunday seems to really be an issue. Who is on your shortlist for new manager? And where do you think Antonio will end up?

i'll be honest, with my new job and other time commitments my Chelsea fandom has suffered a bit, i'm not sure where Conte will end up, just know he's getting the sack after the Cup Final. I think we'll look at Enrique or Allgeri. if neither one of those come i wouldn't be surprised if we do a 2 or 3 year run with Carlo again.

Conte shouldn't be fired, at some point that club should be stabilized and support good managers, there's only so many. How does Roman not understand that his managerial philosophy is destabilizing?

i don't disagree

because Chelsea still continues to win more trophies in his reign as owner than anyone else

This is true, but again, how many more top flight managers are left out there that will want to be subjected to this? Conte has been on the hot seat since he's gotten there. Finishing fifth out of the big six clubs shouldn't cost you a job after you've won the league.

Of course I'd be willing to take all of this back if they wanted to hire Jose again.

if history tells us anything its that a John Terry captained side isn't going to lose to Fulham. Villa will be back in the PL

I completely forgot John Terry was at Villa now. Should be a great game, I'm behind you 100%. I like your chances too with the wonder kid Sessegnon. He's been a joy to watch and should be going to the WC imo after seeing England's roster this morning.

The city of Madrid just won their first of two European titles this season. Congrats to Atleti and now on to Real.

And I say this probably once a year but Alexi Lalas is insufferable as a color commentator. I hope he doesn't get any WC matches.

Arguably the biggest game in world soccer, Fulham-Villa, is next weekend and I'm getting nervous as well.
