Season Ending BPL 2011/2012...

Final day & final matches for the Barclays Premier League 2011/2012 season. It may be meaningless for some of the teams who are safe and guaranteed another season at the top flight football but there are still everything to play for among the top 5 teams chasing for Premier League Crown, champions league football and avoiding relegation. All the million dollar questions this season will be answered tonight after the last round of Premier League matches. Who will be the champion?  can we see a new face or still back to the same old Theatre of Dreams...who will finish the top 4 and an automatic qualifying place in next season Champions League football? will it be the Gunners, Spurs or Newcastle. Who will be the last team to be relegated? QPR or Bolton...

All 10 matches will be played at the same time so a very exciting 90 minutes of football and excitement as many will be switching their TV channels, listening to radio, checking their gadgets to monitor the latest update and what's happening around. Surely by the end of 90 mnutes, some will have joy and some will have tears of either sadness or happiness. This will be the last blog from me for this season too so I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you who had read my blogs, hope it entertains you or at least worth your time reading it. But i'm here to stay of course as i will be writing about Euro 2012 at this blog as well next month so a break for everyone and myself too after today.

Since this will be the last blog of this season so I will start of with my prediction of how the season might fare. My philosophy still the same since the start of this blog and beginning of the season, Man City to win the Premier League crown, Arsenal to finish 3rd, Bolton to be relegated.

Tottenham vs Fulham, a win for Spurs and maintain 4th spot. Chelsea vs Blackburn, a meaningless match but a win for the Blues. Swansea vs Liverpool, a win for Liverpool. Stoke vs Bolton, a win or draw for the home team and Bolton to be relegated. Everton vs Newcastle, a draw or a win for the home team. Norwich vs Aston Villa, Villans to snatch a point or three for this match. Wigan vs Wolves, another meaningless match with a draw or even a win for Wolves. Man City vs QPR, surely a win for the Citizens. WBA vs Arsenal, a win for Arsenal to finish the season in 3rd. Lastly, Sunderland vs Man Utd, a draw or Sunderland to upset Man Utd.

My pick for the week would be Liverpool, Aston Villa, Man City & Sunderland. Lastly, lets hope for City to lift the crown after 40 over long years and a new force + new champ in English football as they truly deserve it by playing the best football and being the most improve and entertaining team. 

Last but not least, since it involve English team, this season Champions League winner will be none other than Chelsea...Blues Rocks!!!

Dream Finale???

An eventful week on the Barclays Premier League as my prediction was close to perfection last week with Man City back on top of the Premier League and it all voice down to last 2 matches and the destiny and title is in their own hand now as it is truly theirs to lose. Well, lets keep our finger cross and see who will be lifitng the Premier League crown next week. It is a seesaw season in Premier League with both Manchester teams swapping places leading the title race. Lets hope there will be a new Premier League champion as I always believe monopoly is not good in any sports therefore its positive to see new force appearing and make the competition more competitive and exciting.

Saturday's only match featuring Arsenal vs Norwich. A comfortable win for Arsenal and further strengthen their 3rd place in the league table with an automatic place in the Champions League next season. 

Sunday's early kick-off with Newcastle vs Man City. Citizens to win and lead the the Premier League table charging towards Premier League crown. Aston Villa vs Tottenham, a draw match with opportunity for Villans to cause an upset and clear of relegation battle. Bolton vs WBA, the away team to nick a point or 3 from this match. Wolves vs Everton, Fulham vs Sunderland, advantage for the home team to get a positive results. QPR vs Stoke, a win for Malayisan Airline (MAS) jersey home team. Man Utd vs Swansea, an upset result at Old Trafford with Swansea to get a result from the match and kill off the hope of Premeir League title going back to Old Trafford...Monday night match Blackburn vs Wigan, a home win for Rovers and send the battling for survival in the drop zone to the last match next week.

My pick for this week are Arsenal, Man City & QPR.

Lastly FA cup final Chelsea vs Liverpool, who to lift the FA cup? On paper, Liverpool is more likely the winner cos they are fully prepared for this final with a full squad, an unbeaten track record this season in their cup matches and clinch the double cup glory. As for Chelsea, their ultimate goal will surely be the Champions League final. But reality is normally cruel + unfair so my bet will be Chelsea to win the FA cup final.
