Well people, there it is, the end of another domestic season.
And back to the inevitability of it all, being that Manchester City are the best club in England, followed by Liverpool, then the next four usual suspects.
I was looking forward to the FA Cup final, but felt completely let down by Watford.
Over the past nine months, on their day, they’ve been one of the best attacking sides in the league. You would have thought that the promise of Wembley glory would have made Saturday one of those days?
Conversely, they were cruelly picked apart and barring the early one-on-one they created, should feel embarrassed to have let their fans down like that.
What happened to Troy Deeney and his famed warrior status?
I tell you what happened, he was discarded like a flaccid winky at an orgy, with a gallant City rogering his side from every angle imaginable.
It was painful and an unfortunate end to the Hornets' season, which, as mentioned, deserved high praise.
So it’s back to the transfer market, while we count down to the European finals.
I’m not gonna even begin to speculate at or mention what the hell is going to happen because as you’ll have seen, every other decent player in the world has been linked to Manchester United.
Meanwhile, despite a transfer ban, journalists are still writing about players linked with a move to Chelsea? It’s all a load of bollox, designed to sell newspapers and encourage ‘click bait’.
Anyway, back to Europe and the Europa final.
It’s only important for one thing really can Arsenal win it and gain entry to the Champions League, which of course has huge financial and transfer implications for next season.
I don’t really care too much about it, of course we don’t wanna lose to the Gooners, but it’s basically the League Cup of Europe.
It's not one that fans sing about down the line, you know, like “20 times, 20 times Man Utd” in relation to the league, or “We’re the only team in London with a European Cup” sung by Chelsea following victory in Munich.
It's 'nice to have, don’t matter if we don’t' kind of thing, but the real bonus is keeping Unai Emery and his team of whingers out of next season's Champions League.
Off the field and what an absolute farce the travel and ticket situation is for the Baku final.
The stadium holds 60 000-plus but an allocation of 7 500 is being given to each club?
And the travel packages being offered by Chelsea?
I mean, don’t wanna knock the club, but £980 (around R18 000) per person?
That’s just mental. Flights to that part of the world should be a quarter of that.
According to reports, both clubs are set to return some of their allocation, which is both a protest and testament to the lack of importance the trophy holds.
I was speaking to a thug mate of mine who still runs with Tottenham’s firm. He was looking forward to the possibility of it kicking off in airports across Europe as three London clubs' fans make their way to and from the finals.
Well sorry dude, that ain’t really happening now, although I’ll be surprised to see the Madrid final run without some incident.
On the flip side, the Champions League final is massive!
Tickets are selling at 3 000 or 4 000 euros (R40 000-plus) a piece.
I can’t wait for it - two great attacking sides, two huge English rivals, two of the best coaches in the world.
As I’ve said recently, “can’t see Liverpool losing it” but we all know anything can happen on the night.
In the meantime, wet your knickers over the fantasy transfer speculation, all I know is I want Ole to stay!
