I may not like Chelsea, nor you Arsenal, but at least we have a mutual disdain for Manchester United  :)

That is correct.

Harry Kane just most likely stole the golden boot from Lukaku as Tottenham thrash Leicester City at King Power 6-1 by pouring in 4 goals himself. Chelsea may even add another piece or two and Tottenham will be even better if they retain all their top players. Next year could set up for something special between the two clubs.

We need a win and a Liverpool loss or draw to finish 4th.

Liverpool is playing Middlesbrough. With their reputation this season, I think we're good  8)

Two years ago it would have been hard to imagine this happening.  But if Bournemouth win or draw against LC on Sunday, the Cherries will secure a Top 10 finish.  And they could go as high as 8th if they win and Southampton and West Brom both lose.

Their manager has done an incredible job.

The Most Lucrative Soccer Match is set for May 29.

Reading will play Huddersfield Town at Wembley for the right to play in the Premier League next season.  At stake is not only increased visibility, but a $221 million payday from television rights alone.

Reading has had their chances in the past so I would kind of like to see more new blood infused in the Prem.

COME ON YOU TERRIERS!

Koscielny.

Liverpool have three in the last 10 minutes though.

Pretty disappointed that Everton appear to have mailed it in.  That's why I'm watching Leicester and Bournemouth right now.  That one is currently a very entertaining 1-1 match.

Of course just as I say that, Everton score!

Some scorelines today!

Liverpool 3-0 Boro
Arsenal 3-1 Everton
Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland
Watford 0-5 Man City
Hull 1-7 (seven!) Spurs (Kane with ANOTHER hat trick!)
Swansea 2-1 West Brom
Burnley 1-2 West Ham
Man Utd 2-0 Palace
Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth
Southampton 0-1 Stoke

Liverpool are Champions League bound, and Arsenal and Chelsea have a FA Cup final to contest.

Bournemouth finish 9th.  What a marvelous achievement for them.

Anyone catching any of the U-20 World Cup at all being played in South Korea? The USA has a pretty big one against Senegal. If they can win that they might be able to win the group because Saudi Arabia is the last match in our group and they are very beatable.

Huddersfield Town 0(4)-0(3) Reading, final KFTM

The Terriers come back from a 3-1 deficit in kicks from the mark to earn promotion into the Premier League. Huddersfield joins the top flight for the first time since 1972.

Ahh, Huddersfield!

Another great story about perhaps a less talented team overachieving, much like Bournemouth did in 2015. 

Here's hoping that the Terriers will meet with the same type of success that the Cherries have had.

Whether or not that happens, good to see another new team joining the ranks of the Premier League.

Huddersfield, Bournemouth, and Brighton all in the Premier League at the same time. What a time to be alive.

Watching U20 World Cup. England reminds me a lot of Harrison in early 2000s.  Great set ups of attacking at the goal.  Costa Rica's keeper is doing a fabulous job stopping England's shots.  UK 1-0 at half.

UK 2-1 CRC final.  Very exciting last 10 minutes plus 4 minutes stoppage time from Costa Rica.  Their Keeper was fantastic stopping most of the many goal attempts by UK.

My Lord. Keep political opinions etc off of sports jerseys.

We are such a sensitive society that we have to label ourselves as "tolerant" just to prevent any kind of backlash.

Just noted the passing of former Newcastle man Cheick Tiote at age 30.  He only scored one goal for the Magpies, but what a goal it was.

It was a volleyed wonderstrike that completed Newcastle's comeback from 0-4 down to get a draw with Arsenal in 2011.

As an Arsenal fan, I couldn't believe the blown lead.  As a soccer fan, I sat it awe at the magnificent strike that Tiote put on that ball.  I still remember it to this day.  For those that haven't seen it, here is a video of it:

The next year, during a League Cup quarterfinal, Arsenal found themselves 0-4 down against Reading in the first half.

Arsenal pulled off their own fightback.

Final:  Reading 5, Arsenal 7 (extra time).

As much as I hate it it is now obvious that Big Rom will move on.

But, Everton should and I think will demand a record fee for his services.

Zlatan is out at Man U and Costa is gone from Chelsea.... This means Chelsea obviously has a plan of either Lukaku or James Rodriguez to come in.
