Man City win the league, commiserations to Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United.



But I primarily made this thread because I wanted to chat about Dalian Atkinson who was murdered by PC Benjamin Monk, who it was found out in court today tasered Atkinson for 33 seconds, and then kicked him twice in the head so hard his laces left imprints. loving oval office.

You guys are on course to win the Europa League. That's pretty cool.

Oh, absolutely - ownership notwithstanding, we've improved a lot this season and it would be nice for Ole to win the UEFA Cup (even if it's piss and poo poo) as he's a good lad who manages well, I don't think it's been a bad season for United at all. I'm thinking more in the sense that I'm not planning on staying up to watch the episode of Premier League Years where City walk the league by winning 87 games in a row, where the bottom three was decided in *checks notes* August, and where City vs Chelsea for the European Cup is in real danger of happening.

I mean, if there's a game that would feel comfortable in front of no fans, it's that one, but still

the premier league are investigating city for the same thing UEFA did except the main difference is there is no statute of limitations

The body had boot prints on the head and the bbc still puts 'kicked' in scare quotes.

Are there any stats on how many VAR-assisted red cards are being successfully appealed? Because both West Ham red cards given after consulting VAR (Soucek and Balbuena) this season have been overturned, and I legitimately can't remember more than one or two reds being successfully appealed for an entire season before VAR came along.

Turns out letting two cunts make a call doubles the chances of loving up when they're as up their own arse as prem refs are

Very cool how quickly they went from "only to correct clear and obvious errors like sending off the wrong Arsenal player" to "spend ten minutes scrutinizing a normal tackle frame by frame to determine if a player's stud scraped another player's toe and he therefore deserves the death penalty"

Ashley not wanting to lose his status as - if not worst - dumbest owner in the league is going to try and sue the EPL for restraint of trade because of the Fit and Proper test. Interestingly none of the coverage of this seems to include any quotes from experts in contract and/or sports law presumably because they're all too busy laughing or furiously masturbating over the amount of money they're going to earn from this.

The Emirates aren't great, granted - for that matter Ashley and almost every other PL owner isn't a fit and proper person by my standards - but also aren't currently engaged in a genocide and hadn't very publicly assassinated a journalist just as they were filling out the application forms.

Reminder that the Glazers buying Man Utd through a leveraged buyout that would have caused them to do a Leeds if TV money hadn't exploded beyond belief was considered fit and proper.

The UAE was enthusiastically involved in the war in Yemen and didn't pull out because they were upset about war crimes or genocide. Admittedly they weren't actively engaged in genocide when the fit and proper persons test was being applied prior to the City takeover but they aren't just lovely to their migrant worker underclass.
