I wanted Liverpool to win because City are going to dominate for years whilst United really struggle.

..honestly I don't give a shit about all the other clubs....
only QPR exists in my universe....

Here's me hoping that it has deflated them so much they drop through the leagues now for a few seasons.

That won't happen matey as they are too wealthy but they are looking mid table at the moment. Their future depends on achieving good sale prices for around a dozen pieces of dead wood and then encouraging good quality players to sign for them without Champions League.

Their recruitment has been truly abysmal, 100 million for Pogba and even I could tell Sanchez would never fit in there.

I'm hoping Liverpool plummet to a Notts. County level in successive seasons.

I hope they win the title lol.

I spent a lot of time in Liverpool in the 80's and went to several games stood on The Kop and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The best game was of course the Milk Cup Semi Final.

I take it you weren't one of those stuck to a radio whilst Wolves capitulated to give the bin dippers a title we deserved; ten days? after everyone else had finished so they were nice and fresh.

I certainly was and Norwich three weeks before.

The worst of football feelings but I don't see the point of disliking Liverpool for nicking the title from us. We drew too many games in the first half of the season and dropped Stan for disciplinary reasons.

I disliked Liverpool more five years later when they bored the pants of people playing the ball around the back four and passing back to the keeper.

10 days as "champions" was the choker for me....

They suffered for 21 minutes I think....

Overall it's been a satisfying season ending with a few clubs really getting their comeuppance like Watford and Leeds.....

Really would like Spuds to put the icing on the cake in the European Cup final by beating the bin dippers to upset the Thursday cup specialists Arsenal as well
2019/2020.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....
