    Man City 2-1 Leicester
    Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley
    Middlesbrough 1-2 Southampton
    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea
    Stoke 1-4 Arsenal

    With Swansea's win, Hull are relegated with a loss and basically relegated with a draw. Swansea and Palace both have a substantial goal difference advantage. Class move by the Swans players today too. They paid for transportation and tickets for their supporters to travel to Sunderland.

    Craystal Palace 4-0 Hull

    Hull are relegated

    Big Sam pulls another rabbit out of his hat. Things might have been different had Hull gotten the penalty for a hand ball when it was still 1-0. Atkinson was shielded by the player and it was on the opposite side of the field from the assistant.

    I don't think we'll see either Hull or Sunderland back for a while. Middlesbrough have a chance; their defense was good enough, only conceding 50 goals. They just couldn't score.

    There had to have been a lot of wrenches smuggled into the Lane yesterday. There were a lot of seats missing by the close of business.

    Have you seen the pictures from today? I think the wrecking ball started as soon as the final whistle blew.

    And in a makeup match:

    Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    To be fair, they've been under construction adjacent to the existing building for some time now and actually closed some seating for this season. So they had quite a work gang waiting on the day when this season's games were done.

    Some interesting pictures from after the game of supporters with various mementos that you have to wonder what they were thinking. One person allegedly was carrying a door down High Road. Spurs should be able to save on a few dumpsters' worth of disposal costs.

    More makeup matches today:

    Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland
    Man City 3-1 Wast Brom

    The battle for the Champions League spots comes down to the wire.

    Man City - 75 points. At Watford
    Liverpool - 73 points. Home to Middlesbrough
    Arsenal - 72 points. Home to Everton

    For all practical purposes, City have clinched. They have a 5 goal advantage over Arsenal.

    Southampton 0-0 Man U

    Man U will finish the season with their fewest wins in the Premier League era, even if they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday.

    In the Championship playoffs, Reading advance to the final, 2-1 on aggregate over Fulham. They'll face Huddersfield Town, who had go to penalties to advance over Sheffield Wednesday. If Huddersfield Town win the final, it will be their first ever appearance in the Premier League; they last played in the first division in 1971-72.

    Given the way they play the game, I'd like to see Huddersfield Town get it done.

    8 caps for the US National team. He's as American as John Brooks, Timmy Chandler, et al. Oh, wait... I guess he's less American than Jermaine Jones?

    Putting a bow on the season:

    In the games that mattered...
    Arsenal 3-1 Everton
    Watford 0-5 Man City
    Liverpool 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Man City finish 3rd with 78 points, Liverpool finish 4th with 76, Arsenal 5th with 75. For the first time in 20 years, Arsenal aren't in the Champions League.

    The rest:
    Burnley 1-2 West Ham
    Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland
    Hull 1-7 Spurs
    Leicester 1-1 Bournemouth
    Man U 2-0 Crystal Palace
    Southampton 0-1 Stoke
    Swansea 2-1 West Brom

    Harry Kane wins the Golden Boot with 29 goals, despite missing 8 matches. Romelu Lukaku was 2nd with 25, Alexis Sanchez 3rd with 24.
    Thibault Courtois wins the Golden Gloves with 16 clean sheets. Hugo Lloris was 2nd with 15, Fraser Forster and David DeGea tied for 3rd with 14

    Big Sam is calling it quits after less than half a year. I think maybe he feels he's getting too old for all that stress. Plus a 2 million pound bonus is not a bad way to feather the retirement nest.

    How was he going to survive as England"s manager? Or was the weekly grind of a league too much?

    I just think that the England job would have probably been worth the grind, while Sam saw the Palace job as a paycheck and a shot at redemption. He came in to save them from the drop, did his job and got his check. I doubt anybody feels cheated.
