A Tale of the Top and Bottom

With West Ham's demolition of Spurs' title hopes yesterday, the race for the Premier League title is just about done and dusted now. So, the focus this weekend is for Champions League places and for league survival. It all starts with Citeh hosting Palace. That's followed by the 10am kickoffs, including Hull v. Sunderland. Relegation threatened Swansea then kick off against Everton in the late one. Join me for all the fun and games this morning, won't you?

COME ON U PALACE


Eagles, Eagles, Eagles

7:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, Bob. Up early for the penultimate time this season where this and the late match may be the most interesting matches of the day

7:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. Becky in disguise, LOL?

7:29 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Citeh start this one in rubbish form, just about hanging on to their crucial fourth Champions League slot, a point against their city rivals United, having one only two of their last five matches.

Palace are in even worse form, having last their last two and still hovering too close to the drop zone for Fat Sam's comfort.

7:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Then I scroll down and see the post from yesterday

7:30 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, chaps! How are you?

They're off from the Etihad.

7:31 AM

Great , Thanks for asking. A little weary after a long week at the business end of the school year. How about Bob and Dave?

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I can't remember a season lasting this long before. In years past, we'd have been enjoying Cup Final Saturday today with the Premier League just about done. This season, there is a full schedule on Sunday, May 21!

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If both the Tigers and Sans win with Palace losing then the relegation race gets really interesting with perhaps 40 points needed this year.

7:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ruddy Norah... that didn't take long

One Nil City

7:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Awful defending

7:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Well, that didn't take long. Sorry, chaps. David Silva is back in the team and back on the scoresheet.

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! SILVA GIVES CITEH THE LEAD WITH A TAP , BUT A GREAT TEAM GOAL

7:33 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fat Sam will be livid about that Palace defending.

7:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Former Pool defender, MArtin Kelly, off to an awful start. The poor defensive header from the Sterling cross gifted Silva a goal then fouling Jesus on a Citeh break.

7:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There could be a Silva lining for both Citeh and the Tigers today.

7:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

By the way, chaps. Happy Naked Gardening Day!

It'll be a big day around The Cottage. Do you have any projects in mind for the afternoon? ;-)

7:37 AM

Fred is asleep on my desk w, lying on his back. How is that any different than the Black Cats have been this season?

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wishing you well on your Spring project. My main project will be grocery shopping after the late match

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Milovojevic heads out for a Citeh corner.

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

De Bruyne tries a spectacular volley from a narrow angle.

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A long range effort from Fernandinho is straight to Hennessey

7:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I was hoping Palace would do something here

7:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I still think they're capable of getting back into this one.

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. This is how they started at Anfield. Kind of Spursy.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW !!!! Citeh have 83% possession. That's like England vs San Marino.

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kelly redeemed himself, tracking back to cut out that cross. All Citeh so far, though.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fernandinho wins a corner off of MArtin Kelly after all that possession.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

JESUS! That was quite a break before he fluffed his lines as he was about to shoot.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

How direct is Jesus? He looks as if he wants to take on the entire Palace defense at pace every time he touches the ball.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Interesting effort from Sane - probably reached the second tier.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I missed the effort from Sane because I was getting a free refill.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boring Boring Citeh!

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zaha tackles Silva for a Citeh. That says everything if the winger is defending near his corner flag.

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What are Palace playing at today?

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not sure. They have a noon kickoff vs the Tigers on Mummy's Day, which may be one of the key matches of the season.

7:59 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Will Hartlepool or Newport go down with Orient today?
Hartlepool play at home BUT to a team that wants to win the League. They have to win and Newport lose to Notts County

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Offside called after Hennessey fumbled a deflected effort from Silva.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Silva works it onto his favored left foot but his shot is deflected into Hennessy's hands. Great return for the Spaniard so far.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Jeff will need to get ready for life in the Conference because Alan Smith's lads are safe in mid table waiting for the season to end.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just a reminder that the L2 matches will be played at the same time as the late Prem match/

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hennessey pushes away a near post deflected effort from Sane.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just a reminder that the Championship matches will be a noon kickoff tomorrow. I will be getting some extra kip. Will it be Forest , Blackburn , or Reddy's lads joining Wigan and Rotherham in L1?

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kompnay booked for a body check on Zaha on a rare Palace attack.

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yeah - I saw that. Not that Leeds have much at stake any more. We'd need about a 25 goal turnaround with Fulham.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hennessey with another near post save from Sane off a pass from De Bruyne.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Willy makes a great save from a Beneteke header off a cross from Townsend with Palace's first shot on target.

8:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Perhaps Kate can score thirty OGS at Hillsborough to help the cause.

8:07 AM

Come on Palace

That would help - I'll ask her.

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

SEVEN teams battling for the remaining two playoff spots in L2. Two East Anglian teams in the race . Cambridge travel to London Central , who are also one of the seven teams while Colchester host Yeovil, who have already clinched safety. Advantage Tangerines, who host the doomed Orient Express.

8:11 AM

What is Becky thinking?

Palace might still be in this one.

It's 1-1 between Tranny and Aldershot in a Conference playoff semi at the half , but Tranny just about at Wembley, ahead 4-1 on agg thanks to that three goal win in Hampshire in midweek.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zaha with a stupid push on Fernandinho. he deserves more than just a lecture.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

USeless free kick from De Bruyne.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh are only one up at the half vs Palace despite utter domination by Citeh. They scored early , but have not scored since.

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Michael Oliver brings the first half to a close. Citeh took an early lead but weren't able to capitalize on it. Palace are still in this one at the interval. Back in a tick.

8:18 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Half time

City doing their best United impersonation

Should have been four up but only one...now just like United... blow the lead please

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aldershot go 1-2 up at Tranny in a Conference playoff semi,now trailing 4-2 on agg. Is the comeback on?

8:30 AM

Jim Beglin and Pete Dreary get the second half underway.

8:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Silva well wide from a really narrow angle.

8:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! CITEH GO TWO UP WITH A CRACKING SHOT IN THE UPPER 90 FROM KOMPANY, OF ALL PEOPLE.

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Vincent Kompany is back! Citeh are 2-0 up. Sorry, chaps.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poo Citeh corner was poorly cleared to Silva, who played De Bruyne down the right. He passed across the box to his international teammate, Kompany, who scored with a cracking finish

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh now have two consecutive corners as a header from Kompany fails to find the target this time.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Milvoy booked for a foul on De Bruyne just outside the Palace box.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hennessey does well to tip over a pile driver of a free kick from De Bruyne. No, it's a goal kick.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hennessey beats away a powerful shot from Ferandinho that was straight at him.

8:43 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Nocito trip to loo strikes again!

Early goals in both hands... do Palace know when the kick off is?

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fat Sam makes a change is Lee Chong Yung is on for Andros.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hennessey saves well from Sane then De Bruyne has the rebound deflected for a corner.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back., UWS. You missed a rare goal from Bad Kompany.

8:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I am going to have to miss the rest of the match
I have to go see some people about a carpet!!

8:47 AM

Three nil
Game over anyway

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Ginger Winger adds a third with a raking drive and this one is done and dusted.

3-0!

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! DE BRUYNE PUTS CITEH THREE UP.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It started with a Palace long throw deep in their own half. After some hgeadd tennis , Sane passed to De Bruyne, whose first time effort landed in the corner from just outside box.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers, UWS. Have fun on a magic carpet ride.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Like for like as Flamini is on for Milovojevic, who is on a yellow.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A standing ovation for David Silva as he's replaced by Zaba. A defensive move by Pep with Citeh three up.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some alphabet soup as Zaha wins a corner off of Zaba . palace's first of the match.

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

David Silva has had a brilliant return and he's run his course now.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Willy Cabs does well to tip over a long range deflected effort from Flamini for another Palace corner.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zaha has a shot deflected off of Sane for another Palace corner.

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I can't believe that there are still 15 minutes left in this one!

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Fat Sam and like for like as Damian Delaney is on for Martin Kelly. What's the point of that?

9:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mark Bright looking anything but that with a dreadful Palace performance.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Late and a tad naughty by Sane on Joe Ward.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Palace will be temporarily down a man as Ward has a bloody nose off the challenge.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jim Beglin not exactly a master pundit as he states that he hopes Joe Ward doesn't end up in a hospital ward. Rather dreadful.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL!!! CITEH GOP FOUR UP WITH A STERLING FINISH FROM STERLING

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Raheem Sterling adds a fourth. Great team goal there.

4-0!

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Joe Ward had just come back on to the pitch to make it 11 vs 11, but it didn't make a difference as Zaba headed on a long diagonal pass to Sterling, who scored with a well placed shot.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final rolls of the dice from Pep as Ihenacho is on for Jesus and Navas for Sane.

9:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fat Sam will be rattling the tea cups in the dressing after this drubbing. He does not like to lose in this manner. Palace have put themselves squarely back in the relegation fight now, with Hull and Swansea to play later today.

Back from walkies as it was starting to get a bit warm at the end . Fairly good timing.

9:51 AM

I'm back from the chores. Fat Sam is licking his wounds. They're just about safe on 38 points but not quite. Three losses on the trot has dropped Palace back into it.

What's on the menu? :

The Tigers vs the Black Cats on NBCSN
The Foxes vs the Hornets on CNBC
Burnley vs the Bggies and the Cherries vs the Potters on Extra time.

The appetizer was Citeh vs Palace with the swans vs the Toffees for dessert

9:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'll be watching the Hull v. Sunderland match, which has the most at stake. Here's the team news:

Hull (4-4-2) Jakupovic; Elmohamady, Ranocchia, Maguire, Robertson; Markovic, N’Diaye, Clucas, Grosicki; Hernandez, Niasse.

Sunderland (4-3-3) Pickford; Jones, Kone, O’Shea, Manquillo; Ndong, Denayer, Honeyman; Borini, Defoe, Anichebe.

Jim Proudfoot and Matt Holland on the mics this afternoon, as we get underway at the KC Stadium.

10:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the KC and then from the KP

10:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It’s spandex-tight in the lower-middle of the Premier League, with the chance for some smaller and/or newly promoted teams to finish in the top half. Burnley, for example, are in 15th place but could be ninth by 5pm.

10:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Interesting stat from the Guardian: If you compiled a form table from New Year’s Day, Crystal Palace, Hull and Swansea - the teams battling to avoid the last relegation spot - would all be between ninth and 11th. One of those teams will feel pretty aggrieved come the final day of the season.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Honeyman heads just wide for the Black Cats off a cross from Billy Jones.

10:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First decent chance for Sunderland - Honeyman just heading wide of the mark.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, mate. Great job of being a statto. We will have a better idea in a few hours . A week from tomorrow two of those three meet as Palace host the Tigers in a noon kickoff.

10:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred surprised to hear Honeyman is starting because the season has been more like vinegar. I explained that already relegated teams sometimes give youngsters a chance,.

10:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Stoke are at Bournemouth today. They haven't scored an away goal in 10 hours! Cor!

10:08 AM

A Tigers counter led by Markovic is stopped by a Deneyer

10:08 AM

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Potters have been dreadful since being at 40 points.

10:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No goals so far, but Sunderland have started extremely well away to Hull. Leicester’s early dominance of Watford is less surprising.

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bayern take the lead vs doomed Darmstadt.

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. The season has gone by quite rapidly.

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is more concerned about the disruption caused by the roof replacement next door.

10:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Stoke might have taken the lead at Bournemouth, had Marko Arnautovic not just shot tamely at Artur Boruc.

10:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm sure - dogs don't like change. Or loud noises.

10:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cats, that is.

10:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's typical of the Potters current form

10:16 AM

Actually both. Sparky is now standing next to me , peering out the window.

Honeyman wins a free kick off of MArkovic. Seemed kind of soft.

10:19 AM

The Tigers get away with it as the free kick is whipped in and a misunderstanding between Jakupovic and Rinocchia.

10:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pickford does well to save a shot from Clucas from just outside the box after a cross was headed away

10:20 AM

Oh - Maguire is inches wide with his blast.

10:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Pickford would be a good pick up for Everton.

10:21 AM

Harry Maguire shoots just wide of the near post, but Pickford appeared to have ti covered as the Tigers start to take control

10:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Adrian Mariappa is denied by the woodwork at the King Power Stadium, although he’s probably quite happy about that: it was the woodwork of his own team’s goal.

10:22 AM

Agreed. Joel and Stecks between the Sticks have not really made the position their own.

10:22 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Hornets have looked the better team at the KP in this dead rubber match

10:23 AM

Then a great cross by Fuchs is nearly turned in for an OG by Kabesele but for a spectacular save by Gomes Addams.

10:24 AM

Nasty from Clucas there - 9th yellow card of the season.

10:27 AM

10:30 AM

Kasper does well to save a long range rocket from Clever Boy then the Foxes have a free kick at the opposite end of the pitch

10:37 AM

The free kick from Mahrez is off the wall for a corner.

10:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! NDIDI GIVES THE FOXES THE LEAD OFF THE CORNER.

10:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner was taken short to the thirsty Danny Drinkwater. His cross resulted in a poor defensive header to Ndidi , who smashed home from close range.

10:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back, UWS. A shame that Shadow is not in sunny Harlingen. You did bring us a goal.

10:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I agree with you, mate. Creating these marquee matches on Friday nights, Sundays mornings and the like has robbed the 3pm Saturday slot of quality.

10:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nearly a second for the Foxes as a shot from Mahrez deflects off of Clever Boy and then the top of the bar for a Foxes corner.

10:42 AM

Can we please relegate both of these sides? They are pants.

Both teams trying to keep possession and creating very little
