Opinion stated as objective fact. Pass.

As for the rest, yeah, an absolutely incredible run. The fact that they're going to be in Europe and still might make the CL is a minor miracle. That's a great revival, but only possible because of the great hiccups you mention.

You thought Newcastle would be in Europe?
Hell, I thought top 10 would be a win. Howe is on record as saying he just didn't want there to be a cloud of possible relegation--he merely wanted them to stay clear of that scrap. Definitely way ahead of the plan.

Side note: My mother really, really likes that really, really tall and handsome German coach lol
Yep. Pretty sure I stated it in this thread too.

I'm going to go ahead and say that Liverpool's draw means a Champion's League spot is done and dusted for Newcastle. Now let's finish 3rd ahead of Man U. And let's officially clinch the CL in front of the home crowd. Howe-way the lads!

Nail in the coffin game today. Put Leicester to the sword and help put Liverpool out of their misery. Although I don't care for Liverpool, it would be funny to see them qualify for CL over Man U.

Howe-way the lads!

Welp, it wasn't pretty, but it got the job down. Howe-way the lads for making it into the Champions League!!! :beer:Effing A right, Mags!

Should've been 4 or 5 to nil into the middle of the 2nd, then Leicester actually tried and could've snatched a HUGE win and caused me some heartburn. In the end, an exciting nil-nil draw will very much satisfy me.

OMG, frigging LiVARpool, who gets more calls than God, have filed a complaint with PGMOL over the Villa game.
Liverpool officially Europa bound now with Man U clinching UCL today. The relegation fight takes center stage on the last day, with 7th place and 3rd tier European football a distant secondary story.
