The Football Tribes blog not only aims to provide you guys with best polls and discussions from from the app – but also a brief summary of current football news. After all, this is a community, and we’re all striving to stay up to date with the latest rumours, results and analysis. Generous eh? We know…
However, more importantly, we want your insight and opinions on what’s happening in the football world so leave a comment, or take the discussion to the Football Tribes app and use your polls to generate the discourse!
This weekend undoubtedly saw tears shed from all football fans – whether you’re a Liverpool fan attempting to come to terms with Stevie G’s departure or a Hull City fan on the brink of breakdown following their relegation yesterday. Or perhaps it may just be, like us, that you shed a tear at the realisation that there will be no Premier League football at the weekend for some time.
So, what were the standout results in the BPL 2014/15 season’s final matches?
As already touched upon (sorry!) a draw for Hull City with Manchester United at the KC Stadium meant that Steve Bruce’s men met a similar peril to QPR and Burnley who were both also relegated this season. So Hull fans – Bruce in or out? Will you be coming back stronger to the BPL next season? Create some polls in the Hull tribe – we would love to hear your views!
It was somewhat more of a joyful occasion yesterday for the Newcastle United faithful, who’s 2-0 win at St. James’ Park against West Ham guaranteed their survival in the BPL after a dismal season. Adding to the elation was the fairytale ending which saw Jonas Gutierrez score their second goal guaranteeing three points. Some achievement for a man who is only recently playing again following a testicular cancer diagnosis. One question still resides for the Toon Army – is Carver the man to lead you next season? As always, get polling and let us know what you think!
The top end of the table as we all know was already decided, with Chelsea taking this season’s title with a tally of 87 points followed by Manchester City with 79. Arsenal’s 4-1 win at home to West Brom saw the North-London side seal a third place finish in the league and the final Champions League spot fell of course to Manchester United.
It certainly looks as though the top four will be fiercely contested next season – but who’s going to edge it? Which players need to be brought in to which teams over the summer to build title winning sides? Arsenal fans have been voting to say that they need some transfers if they are to win the title next season:
It was also a sad day for the Anfield faithful in two respects – Gerrard’s last appearance in a Liverpool shirt, and also a 6-1 away loss against Stoke. Does this mean the end of the road for Brendan Rogers? You guys have been polling and it appears the door could be looming for the Scot! It has also been looking as though there could be some desire for Klopp to come to the Kop in place of Rogers!
So, there’s some of the standout results from the weekend which gave us an exciting climax to a great season. Also, it’s not all doom and gloom – some top quality football will shortly be upon us. Arsenal meet Aston Villa for the FA Cup final on Saturday may 30th and Barcelona clash with Juventus for Champions League glory on June 6th and we shall be on the lookout for your views and predictions prior to the big games!
