Huzzah FOAR Foxy Footy, your 2015-16 English Premier League champions!!
Thanks to Chelski rallying from a 2-nil halftime deficit to draw Spurs, the title race is over. So…now what?
FUCKALL. That’s what.
There’s the race to the bottom, but annoyingly enough, the Barcodes have by far the easiest schedule and thusly path to safety. So it looks like Sunderland and Norwich will join Villa on the journey down.
And I suppose there is just a tiny bit of suspense in who finishes 3rd (last CL slot without playing in the qualifying rounds) and 4th (last CL slot period), but…meh.
On teevee Saturday, Norwich play United first (7:45, NBCSN), needing 3 to keep hope alive. United is the side chasing 4th. Villa/Newcastle (10:00, NBCSN) and Sunderland/Chelski (10:00, USA) are next. See what I mean by schedule?
Lastly, tune into USA for the spotlight dance at 12:30, to see Leicester’s home finale. Will they be too hungover to throttle Everton and “dead man walking” manager Roberto Martinez? I am betting not, but maybe it will only be 2-nil instead of 4 or 5.
Sunday starts with Spurs and Soton (8:30, NBCSN), and one has to wonder what the atmosphere at White Hart Lane (and the spirit in the home side) will be like. 3rd place Arsenal and 4th place City go at it to close the weekend (11:00, NBCSN), and they will swap positions (on goal differential) if City get all 3 points.
Season ends next Sunday, yo.
