Europe:- Great seeing Juventus shutout Barca over the two legs, and in my opinion shows Barcas heavy dependancy on Messi, Suarez and Neymar. Neymar and Suarez did not really show up on wednesday night, was left all down to Messi who buckled with his shooting. Juve were the better side. Shame Leicester could not quite pull off the win, but second half they played well and with a bit of luck and better shooting could have won the tie, but they have had a great experience this season.
Happy United beat Anderlecht and into Europa League semis against Celta Vigo, although the blow of Imbrahimovic being out for up to 9 months is a major blow. Pressure really on United and Mourinho now and he will need to big in Griezmann in the summer.
Congrats to Brighton, promoted to the Premier League (although hard to congratulate as rivals) they deserve their chance next season. Big congrats to my Pompey, finally we are promoted from League Two to League One next season and now hopefully we can start climbing back to where we belong. New owners could be on the horizon too, happy times. PLAY UP POMPEY!!!
Great to see Harry Redknapp back in management and surprise at Birmingham City, he has the know how and experience to keep them up.
Big game tomorrow night Man City v Man Utd. Hope United win not a fan of City, if United play like they did against Chelsea they should win and go above City, be interesting to see how Mourinho lines up.
Well Middlesborough deserve to be relegated last night they were so poor was like watching a sunday league team, they had no desire and looked like they knew at the start they were going down. Feel sorry for Alvaro Negredo being part of such a poor team, he will definately leave and and think many Premier League clubs would want him.
Great to see Newcastle tale Championship title on their way back up, sad seeing Blackburn Rovers down to League One another big club on the demise, but we will be playing them next season in League One.
Jermain Defoe to BOurnemouth, could be a good signing?

Sunderland, Middlesborough and Hull City relegated all from the North East too.
All three clubs were very poor this season, glad to see Burnley survive and Bournemouth for another season. Always good when smaller clubs survive in Premier League. Max exodus of players i think from these three clubs, Defoe will a Free transfer there will be lots of takers.
Current Club: Portsmouth FC & Montpellier Previous Clubs: Manchester United, Huddersfield Town
Final round of the season, will miss it over next couple of months. Could be an exciting summer, with Newcastle United, Brighton + either Huddersfield Town (want to see them go up) or Reading. Will Greizmann be joining Man Utd? Who will sign where? Will be interesting summer i think.
Well season finished, Chelsea champions and they deserved the title played well all season, really pleased to see progress of Pochettino and Tottenham finishing runners up. I like Pochettino a good manager.
Arsenal missing out on Champions League no surprise, they are too erratic and Wenger needs to go they need fresh management approach and better quality to compete at the top and in Europe. Fingers crossed for United tomorrow night I think they will beat Ajax and lift the Europa League and back into Champions League. Greizmann to United? I think thats a done deal, dont think Lukaku is right man for United, personally.
Sunderland and Middlesborough both deserve to go down very poor football played, shame Hull City went down thought Marco Silva did a good job and had them playing better, personall think Watford should have gone down watching their play on Sunday they were awful League One clubs play better football than Watford.
Next season will be interesting Newcastle United back up, Brighton back in the top flight after long abscence should be interesting to see how they play, really hoping for Huddersfield Town to win playoff and go up, like there brand of football, love seeing smaller less glamourous clubs go into Premier League like Bournemouth did.
My beloved Pompey are up to League One as champions, and now with what look like new owner in the former Disney chief, who has vowed to spend money updating Fratton Park, and possibly 10 million available for players hopefully we can get some good signings and have a good League One season next year. Hope everyones team had a good season.
Agree with Redknapp, Watford were awful on Sunday and most of the season. The three that went down will struggle in the Championship its proving a tough league. Looking forward seeing Rafa and Newcastle think they will do much better this time around, and Brighton should be interesting as Chris Hughton is a good manager.
Well done United, great to see them lift 3 trophies this season and the big one Europa League and back in Champions League next season.
They definately need to sign Griezmann up front, and two better defenders for Champions League, Ajax have done well reaching final but they did not look like winning last night. They will be good again next season and with more experience.

Should be a good weekend of football, FA cup up first Arsenal v Chelsea not a big fan of either but would love to see Arsenal win and deny Chelsea the double, think that would be great stick one up Conte. (Not a fan of him as a player or manager) Arsenal if they get it right should have the firepower, Sanchez and Ozil both need to step and put on big performances for once its about time.
Really hope Huddersfield Town win the playoff over Reading (like both managers David Wagner and Jaap Stam) but such a long time since Huddersfield were last in top flight. Always like to see historic clubs in top flight, so C´mon Huddersfield Town!!
Club: Manchester City Previous Clubs: Everton, Chelsea, Notts County
