Agreed. All 3 goals came from fuck ups at both ends. Everton had us by the balls at half time though, and they completely failed to press their advantage.
Everton really need a cash injection soon. Can't see how they're gonna continue to challenge for anything what with all the debt they have and little money to manage. Although that said, I still don't understand how they could afford to buy Jelavic from Rangers. Every year, we always hear that Everton have no money yet they always manage to sign players on last minute deals. How do they do it?
I just get sick over this past season. He pissed off his Manager, spent the season playing Golf, gets paid, and then comes back because the money City spent on the field is not performing with heart or class. He returns and soon after nets a Hat Trick.
Therein lies the argument. Why should the top flight teams get it and not anyone in the lower leagues? Even then some of the clubs in the top tiers would struggle to afford the installation and upkeep of goal line tech.
But to play devils advocate, introducing it to some divisions and not others is the main reason its not in yet. It would quite possibly create a rift in rules for top flight football and lower divisions.
Can't have one rule for the Manchester Uniteds of the world and other rules for the Bristol Rovers.
Basically everyone else fucked up. Ajax was only about 2 points behind to begin with (and they were tied with 5th and 6nd place! Can you imagine that, 6 teams only a couple of points between?) Anyway, 1st place (AZ) had to play 3rd place (FC Twente), they tied. 2nd place (PSV) fucked up big time, but then again they didn't play well last few games either. 5th place (Feijenoord) also tied and Ajax themselves had to play 6th place, which they won.
Then I believe it was AZ that had to play PSV, which was a tie. And Twente fucked up. Which is basically how that happened.
Anyway, it was a major clusterfuck for all other teams except Ajax. Everyone had hoped for a last gameday in which at least 4 out of 6 teams still had a shot at championship (wouldn't that be epic?), but it turns out Ajax is going to win early now. Not as exciting, but as an Ajax fan you're not hearing me complain.
Dutch competition has been extremely exciting the last 5 years. With 1 exception, all had it decided in the last playing round. Twice even with 3 teams having a shot at it. (and 1 of those 2 times the favourite that all they had to do was tie lost and the 3rd favourite making up a goal saldo of 5 goals.).
all credit to Wigan, we created nothing, nothing at all. clearly missed arteta after he went out, not like anyone in the arsenal shirt had a terrible game (tho djorou didn't look comfortable at all today). wigan were just the better team today. woulda expected arsenal at home to solidify 3rd place but we couldn't do it, really disappointing
Newcastle has the hardest road, Chelsea is next. Tottenham should sleep walk into 3-4 wins, but with the way they are playing, I doubt it. Arsenal has been very blah lately. RvP had so many chances but he has been off target.
