Rate the season:

Another twist tonight with Spurs smashing Arsenal. I've got to say it's been a great season from what had initially promised so little really.

Top four looked set with City winning at a canter. Despite being 14 points ahead not so long ago it may go to the last day even if that's a formality in reality due to GD.

Chelsea to challenge only to be undone by the injury to a previously unfancied Chilwell.

Man Utd to get 4th easily and signed a goat. Ended up with a manager prompting the MEN headline "Ralf Rangnick's short-lived Lokomotiv Moscow project is the blueprint for Manchester United" and a battle for 6th.

Spurs starting the season with Nuno and somehow finishing with Conte.

Newcastle get bought by someone with twelve times the money of City or something daft.

Everton fighting relegation, Brentford being comfortable and Palace ditching 9 players and employing Viera but doing well... all surprises.

After City breezing it four years ago, covid stopping and starting the last two and the near formation of a super league... what a season!

The Prem really is the nuts. List your favourite part that isn't bitter.

Our 3-3 with Brentford was crazy so I'm going for that.

Feel free to prove it. All the websites say otherwise plus he's still a striker so...

Unless you're saying Peps tactics are somehow a hindrance which would be silly.

Well if the internet says it....

No answer to that, I watch every minute of every game and it seems I've been fooled by Jesus playing out wide now the internet has decreed he plays every game as a centre forward.

Lots of people writing Man City won the league without a striker when they used a striker in 26 of the games is certainly the strangest thing this season.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I can remember about eight we’ve used a striker, it’s definitely not 26

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Then how has Jesus had 26 Prem appearances?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Mostly playing right or left wing. I thought you meant the the role though, and the eight I said was a handful for Jesus and a few times we used Torres there.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes but ththe 'Pep hasnt got a striker' is spun as though it's a hindrance when in reality he does have a striker but chooses not to use one.

If he wants to stick him wide that's up to him.

Jesus hasn’t been a natural striker since he was 19 and even then it was pretty clear he was better on the wing though.

I don’t think it’s particularly been a hindrance, there’s been a few games where it’s really stood out we could have done with a proper striker though.

The number of sitters Sterling missed on Wednesday night was proof City need an out-and-out striker.

Think we just need that variety to our play at times. It’s clearly not too bad given how many goals we have scored this year, but that’s down to the patterns and movement. Sometimes you do need more a focal point for that to work around too.

Honestly, in terms of quality i would rank it as a 4/10. This is definitely one of the weakest Premier league seasons I can remember. Take the top 2 out and you have a half decent Chelsea side then varying degrees of dross.

This Spurs side are average, the Arsenal side are average, United are awful and West Ham are 7th despite only winning 4 of their last 11 games - those sides will be in Europe next year, that is atrocious.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yet english teams took up semi final spots in CL and Europa and Europa conf
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He said take the top 2 out. Then you have some failures in the Europa League and whatever a conference league is.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Failures? West ham leicester ? Indicates strength of league. The league is stronger than its ever been
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Compare the budgets of West Ham and Leicester to other teams in the Europa and Conference League. Leicester (nevermind Spurs) should be winning that with their B teams. West Ham have a budget similar to the Real Madrid galactico era. They should have the Europa won by Christmas. Instead you have teams from farmers leagues in the final because West Ham bottled it.

With the amount of money in the EPL, every European final should be made up of EPL teams.

Note that when English teams get to a Europa final, it is usually because they FAILED in the CL, not even getting out of the group.

A bit like if I failed to qualify for the men's 100m at the olympics so I chopped my cocccck off and won the women's event instead. Yes, it's technically a win but you don't get any respect because you were meant to be competing with the men.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

West Ham we’re knocked out by the 11th placed Bundesliga side and Leicester were knocked out by a Roma side that will finish somewhere between 6-8th. Spurs went out in the group stages, United lost to the first decent side they played in the knockouts. Chelsea did well, losing to Real is no disgrace.

The Prems “strength” is made up of 3 teams, and Chelsea could very well slide now.

It all started so well for Utd signed ronaldo and many on here proclaimed the best attack in the league, OGS was ready to push for the title after finishing 2nd just 20 points behind.

Had Spurs been allowed to play the cancelled last group game then I'm sure we'd have got through.

That said I think it worked out for the best because we haven't got enough quality in our squad to do the rotation needed to sustain a European run and a fight for Fourth place.

West Ham know all about this.

Boris Man Utd need a striker more.
Honestly this lot must be our worst forward line in our history.
