11 Things we’ve learned about Football this week

By Dan Tracey (@dantracey1983)

  1. Chelsea march onto one of the easier title winning campaigns we’ve seen in the last few years, it won’t necessarily be a memorable season but we will certainly remember Charlie Adam’s audacious effort for years and years to come.

  1. For all of the criticism that Arsenal have had this season they are finishing very strong and on current form have to be serious contenders for 2nd place and strong favourites to retain the F.A. Cup.

3.  Another season of Europa League purgatory awaits for Liverpool, in a week where the contract talks of Raheem Sterling have been one of the main talking points the result against Arsenal shows the difference in quality between them and their Champions League place rivals.

  1. Tottenham’s season has all but fizzled out, now all they have is a battle for 5th place to look forward to but after yesterday’s display the next 7 matches could be tough viewing for all Spurs fans.

  1. A key win for Sunderland on Sunday and the appointment of Dick Advocaat is now looking a clever decision on the other hand Newcastle are still not quite safe, albeit a point will probably do it but the likelihood of John Carver staying on after May is very slim.

  1. Wins for QPR, Leicester and Sunderland, while a draw for Burnley see Hull and Aston Villa as the big losers this week in the relegation race. How costly could those missed chances for Hull the other week at home to Chelsea be, come the end of the season?

  1. The Paul Merson v Andy Townsend Twitter battle rumbles on, neither person really comes out of looking very well. The phrase “two bald man fighting over a comb springs to mind”

 

  1. The race for the Championship and also the other promotion places gets even hotter, 2 points separate the top 4 and up to 8 teams are fighting for the top 6. I like to think I’m a betting man but even I couldn’t pick who is going end up winning that battle

  1. It was simply a weekend of fantastic goals in the Premier League, you would be happy with one of those in weekend, we were lucky to get at least 3 outstanding goals.

  1. Bayern Munich beating Borussia Dortmund on Saturday shows how the Bundesliga is a one team league now and you won’t see anyone beat this footballing juggernaut for the foreseeable future.

  1. And Real Madrid 9 (Nine) – 1 Granada. How much you could say Real were dominant or Granada were awful is difficult to say, but the sooner Spain sort out a collective bargaining TV deal which balances the money throughout the league the better.
