Looking for a miracle.
Manchester City should wrap up their second Premier League title in 3 years tomorrow...

Still... we can hope for a miracle. If City lose at home against West Ham and Liverpool beat Newcastle then the title returns to Anfield (it's spiritual home Smile ) for the 19th time and first time in 24 years.

Andy Carroll could finally justify the 35 million Liverpool paid for him a few years ago if he pulls off the ultimate shock in a West Ham shirt.

RE: Looking for a miracle.
I'm hoping for that too. If City don't score early on, it could become interesting, but it's a very long shot. I'd prefer Liverpool to win it, not least because City are just another thrashy rich club with players who don't care and a manager who's on a day to day rolling contract.

I wonder why both matches don't start the the same time?

Don't they?? I thought it was mandatory that all games on the last day of the season started at the same time.

Sorry, you're right! I thought I read somewhere that City were playing an hour earlier...

I wanted Liverpool to win it all but last week was just...bad. Of curse you can look at a lot of points during a season but last week was unforgivable.

Really hoping Liverpool somehow win it. Not sure why, but I've been rooting for them this season in England.

To be honest, if you asked any Liverpool fan if they would take their current position and odds at the start of the season, you'd have had thousands biting your hand off.

Whatever happens tomorrow... it's been a far better season than everyone expected. I thought we might challenge for champions league qualification at the beginning of the season but never expected us to challenge for the title. So in short, it's been good. Rodgers should get £60-80 million to spend in the summer to shore up the defence and bring in reinforcements. We'll be challenging again next year.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

Liverpool playing with fire, already down 0-1, and almost conceded another one. If they cannot win here and somehow West Ham pulls off the upset ...

Yeah, I'm up watching it. One match on Foxtel on TV and the other on Foxtel Go on the Ipad.

This doesn't just require a miracle.... it requires the second coming.

City 2-0 and West Ham look like a pub team. Typical Sam Allardyce team - 2 down and still 10 players behind the ball. God help the fans who watch that crap every week.

Liverpool have just equalized but unless I see JC himself warming up as one of the West Ham subs, then this is done.

Jordi Cruyff? I mean he's good but he's not his father.

So, wait…didn't Liverpool win? Is it over? (Or, as far as I can tell with football…it's never over.)

No, Liverpool dropped some points in the 2 games before the last match and ended up coming second to Manchester City.

Not good... but generally a much better season than originally expected.

How's the mood among Liverpool fans? Disgusted? Or hopeful? Brooding over it? Resentful?

^Good generally. Bit of an anti-climax after the Chelsea game but very positive for the future.
