    Oh, happy day! :clap

    If we have to lose three and win one overall against United this season, at least today's win was for a bit more than some points in the table. If Frank wins the FA Cup this year and secures CL football (particularly in 3rd place), he will have blown everyone's expectations out of the water. I'm very proud of what we've done this year.

    Name's "Milo", after no one in particular. He did sleep through the entire match against United. Must've been good luck! :thumb

    Shout out to the hotspurs! Fully expect United to not take advantage of that slip Leicester...

    Kane/Son what a front partnership... honestly. Deadly counter.

    Villa's unexpected victory against arsenal today means that they are currently above relegation. Week 38 will be a big decider.

    Leicester City has an opening -- they MUST win vs ManU this weekend in order to secure a CL place.

    Prediction: LCFC will not win. They've been in free fall for quite a while now, and I just don't see them pulling this off.

    And congratulations to West Brom on their upcoming promotion.

    (and a little bit happy that Forest missed out on the 3-6 place playoff)

    Pulisic! Wooowwwww, my man! :clap

    Missed the game today, but caught the highlights. The look on Klopp's face at 8:50 after Pulisic's goal is hysterical :photog



    Sooooo, those CL spots. Thank god Leicester and United play each other for that final game. If my math is correct (and that's a BIG "if"), as long as United win, we're staying in 4th place no matter what happens against Wolves. If Leicester win and we lose, then we're down to 5th. If Leicester win and we win, we're up to 3rd on 66 points, Leicester is up to 4th on 65, and United is in 5th at 63. If we draw with Wolves and United draw with Leicester, 3-4-5th place will remain the same as they are now.

    Crikey. My head hurts.

    I'm quite sad about that, to be honest... We have some good friends in Nottingham, whom we visited while we were over there last year. They gave me a Forest jersey as a gift, and we hung out in Nottingham for a few days. It's a hard-working, gritty city that loves its football team. I wear my Forest jersey on game days, but only when Chelsea isn't playing. :thumb I doubt they'd have made it to third place through the playoffs, but it would have been great to see them have a shot. I think they were up to 3rd in the table at one point, if memory serves correct.

    In other news, I'm super excited to have Leeds back up :clap If anyone here has not watched the Amazon documentary, I'd definitely recommend it.

    Manchester United
    The Red Devils will secure Champions League football if they avoid a loss to Leicester on the final day. It does not get any simpler than that.
    If United do lose, they would need Chelsea to lose against Wolves, and it will see them depending on the European competitions to play out in their favour to see if they are in the Champions League or Europa League next season.
    Of course, United also have the opportunity to qualify for the Champions League by winning this season's Europa League, however it would be a much more comfortable route to secure their place on Sunday.

    Chelsea
    Chelsea need a draw against Wolves to absolutely guarantee their place in the Champions League next season.
    If Chelsea lose, then they will need to rely on Manchester United winning in their game as a draw between the two sides would see Chelsea slip to 5th in the table.
    As mentioned earlier however, 5th would not be the end of the road for their Champions League qualification hopes, as should they win this year's competition, they would automatically qualify for next year's group stages.

    Leicester
    Leicester take on their direct rivals for one of the final Champions League places, Manchester United, on Sunday, and they cannot afford to lose. A win will guarantee them a spot in the Champions League next season.
    A draw will see Leicester depending on Chelsea to lose their game against Wolves, which would see Leicester climb to 4th and then wait for the European competitions to play out to see if they are playing in the Champions League or Europa League next season.


    Tie Breakers

    Chelsea v Leicester
    Chelsea and Leicester would end level on points if Chelsea lose v Wolves and Leicester draw with Manchester United. Leicester would finish above Chelsea on account of their superior goal difference.

    Manchester United v Chelsea
    Manchester United and Chelsea would end level on points if Chelsea and Manchester United match each other's result. United would finish above Chelsea unless the Blues beat Wolves by 15 goals or more. Should Chelsea and Manchester United need to be separated by head-to-head results after Sunday, Manchester United would win by virtue of having earned more points (6) in their games v Chelsea this season.
