To all the Japanese arsenal fans congratulations on 2nd place-you nearly won the league. 5 seasons one fa cup and a billion spend by arteta. Here’s to another trophyless season next year..

Klopp received a heartfelt farewell as many homes around Anfield were adorned with his pictures. He has become a legendary figure at Anfield and will forever remain a crucial part of the club.

115 charges remain against Man City and need to be investigated and made public.

How disappointing for Arsenal to come so close for a second season in a row, and to lose out to such an unlikeable club. Yet another year that City's name is on the trophy along with an asterisk.

Liverpool fans had a disappointing year, as their stadium was often filled with despair.

Once that US-owned team starts playing in the States, the team will get the fan support they need.

I can tell you have never been to a game at Anfield. Liverpool and all the other Premier League clubs will not be playing any competitive games in the US.

Premier League games most certainly will be playing in the States. Half the teams are US owned anyway.

Time for the teams to return to where they belong.

Real football fans know Anfield is a fortress of Liverpool football. This season Liverpool lost only once at Anfield in the Premier League. Most clubs are fearful of playing there.

You seem to understand so little. The Premier League is the top flight of English football clubs which is played entirely in England without a single game played in any other country. If that were to happen it would no longer be the Premier League which is the most lucrative league in the world.

Football started in England, not the US so there is "no return to where they belong". They are already in the right country.

You can fantasize as much as you want but it will never happen.

Premier League clubs are a crucial part of English football, with strong ties to specific locations or cities and histories that span over 100 years. Without the support of the Premier League, the other six tiers of English football would face financial collapse. The owners of the Premier League clubs are unlikely to abandon their lucrative market for an unfamiliar one in the US.

It is a problem but the overall quality is higher.

Arsenal and Liverpool at least kept it competitive at the top this season.

Man U and Chelsea absolutely ridiculous given the silly money they’ve spent - miles off it.

The idea that this City dominance will only stop when Guardiola leaves or if City are heavily punished could be right.

Got to give credit to Foden this season though - superb player.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

A pity City are playing Man U in the FA Cup final.

I and I’m sure millions of others would like to get behind a likable club to stop City doing the double.

Premier League clubs are a crucial part of English football, with strong ties to specific locations or cities and histories that span over 100 years. 

Doesn't matter nowadays. The teams are foreign-owned. The majority of the players are from overseas, Many of the fans in the stadium are from outside the city in which the matches are played.

Nice goal by Mac Allister today. A great addition for Liverpool having this Argentinian player.

When Premier Matches are held in the US that will be a good opportunity for Argentinian fans to attend the games in person.

Again, you are showing your lack of knowledge of the game.

The British government, the FA, and the club owners will never allow that to happen. The US should concentrate on raising the standard of their own game and clubs. None are worthy opponents for any Premier League side. Argentinians can't afford to attend a game in their own country.

I think the outrage over the big six attempting to join a ‘super league’ was a key moment. Supporters, ex-players and even politicians among others put enough pressure on the owners to stop this disgraceful move.

This stupid idea of playing Premier League abroad will go down the toilet where it belongs.

I’d say odds of longer than 50/1 on this idiotic idea becoming a reality.

Come now Jimizo. It would be bad form if you didn't root for the underdog on the 25th...

Man U are joke. Hundreds upon hundreds of millions spent to finish 31 points behind City.

They deserve a hiding.

Who are you supporting?

There was a time when Man U was never the underdog. What went wrong with them?

Looking at next season, Arsenal look the most likely to challenge City. I think there will be a drop off at Liverpool with the manager changing.

Can’t see anyone else challenging - Man U, Chelsea nowhere near it and Villa and Spurs not title material.

Then again, City’s possible punishment could change things. Could even affect relegation?

I agree the premier league is the highest level in the world

I watch every weekend

Yet, have no interest in man city winning another title

Modern football is strange

Is this kind of dominance in England so modern?

I remember Liverpool dominating the late 70s and 80s - they were more successful in Europe than this City side. Man U dominated under Ferguson. This is the City era.

My dad talked about the 60s when Man U, Man City, Liverpool, Everton, Spurs, Burnley, Ipswich and Leeds all won the league.

It would be great to return to that but hard to see how it could happen.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

I agree there have always been dominant clubs

But never like this

Man Utd won 13 titles in 21 years  Liverpool won 11 titles in 19 years  Man city 6 titles in 7 years 

Or maybe I'm just getting old

0 ( +1 / -1 )

More people lined up the street for Klopp's last game than Man C winning the PL. So strange. Also cannot understand how a club with 115 charges can continue without having points deducted, like Everton and N. Forest. Absolutely corrupted.

Not surprising though. The previous periods of dominance weren't bought.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Man Utd won 13 titles in 21 years Liverpool won 11 titles in 19 years Man city 6 titles in 7 years

You can also say Man U won 7 titles in 9 seasons depending on the point you want to make. Liverpool were champions of Europe 4 times in 8 years - City nowhere near that.

I suppose your opinion of dominance can depend on whether your team is dominating.

I agree with your overall point though. If you try to be objective, dominance is probably not a good thing.

And finished 8th this season? Ridiculous club. They or Chelsea should’ve bought this league.

They deserve an absolute hiding in the cup final. I’d rather it wasn’t City but they still deserve the hiding.

How convenient. They spent triple that in the previous five years, years that are under investigation for FFP violations. Manchester City is a dirty club and the fact that they are allowed to keep competing, and winning, without being penalized is disgraceful.

Money talks again doesn’t it.

Thought I watched another great Palace performance as they thrashed Villa 5-0. Seems like I imagined it as there is no mention of the match here.

Modern football eh! SMH

It's 2024, not 1974. You have been away from the games for decades so it is obviously you don't know what is going on in the Premier League.

The British government did not stop the foreign players from taking over the league and the British government did not stop foreign ownership of the teams, so it is silly to think the British government is going to stop matches from being played in the US--the country that owns half the teams in the league.

ROFL!
