I needed a pick-me-up and watching the AFTV lot lose their rag did the trick 🤣 

This loss even broke Ty, the most optimistic/delusional one of them all.
 

It can’t be much longer until Don Robbie starts a video by saying, “Disappointing result at Millwall...”

Troopz kicked that bucket better than Arsenal kicked a ball. 😂

This is where AFTV and their offshoots really shine. You thought the 10-2 batterings vs Bayern were bad? They haven’t seen nothing yet.

The UCL final is almost certainly going to be moved from Istanbul

The UK placed Turkey on the travel "red list" today due to the increasing COVID levels in Turkey (the red list means anyone returning from Turkey would need to isolate at the airport hotel for 10 days with no exceptions)

The game will most likely be moved to England. Villa Park has offered to host the game.

There is also speculation that UEFA will move the game to Lisbon (for the 2nd straight year)

Welp.

And there is an ugly sequel to this, for a couple of days later Aogo stepped down from his position as a pundit for Sky Germany. 

The reason? During City vs PSG he seemingly used the phrase (I can't find any exact quote) "Trainieren bis zum Vergasen" which translates roughly to "to train until gassing".

The second part is a proverbial use which means doing something excessively, but the choice of words refers to the horrible actions taken by Nazis during the Holocaust, where people were killed with gas in concentration camps.

As somebody who studied German (and Scandinavian) literature I only learnt about this late in my life at university although hearing it used quite often. (figured it out would probably be a more fitting expression) 

And while I never used the proverb myself, I totally understand why it's highly inappropriate, yet I will say that this probably wasn't making light of the Holocaust and its many victims.

Also, since the internet doesn't forget, an old video of Aogo stating he doesn't want to "live like a ...*, moving around from A to B"

* insert insulting term used for Romani people 

Also a woman on Twitter seemingly accused him of sexually (verbally) harassing her and a friend. So yeah, looks like there is nobody with moral high ground here.

The world's most exciting league comes down to the final day, and... everything's settled already? Norwich and Watford are back up, playoff clubs are set (Brentford, Swansea, Bournemouth, Barnsley) and almost everyone else is on their vacation... except for the bottom clubs, where wackiness lies.

THE MATCHES!

Wycombe are away to Boro. They need a win, Derby and Rotherham to lose, and pray for at least a 13-goal swing. I think Mike and the Mechanics sang a song about this.

Rotherham are away to Cardiff. If they win and Derby/Wednesday draw, they leapfrog both clubs to safety.

Derby are home to Wednesday in the six-pointer, winner take all. If Derby wins, that's it. Wednesday have to win - they're safe if they do and Rotherham don't. Draw and Rotherham pip them both with a win. IT'S THE CHAMPIONSHIP BABY!

Yeah, Derby/Wednesday has absolutely lived up to expectations. Gonna be some more twists in the tail before all is said and done...

If Rotherham win, you're down. You need to better their result.

As a Swansea fan, I’m glad we aren’t getting Bournemouth or Brentford in the playoff semi-finals. I just don’t know if the Swans have enough legs to survive three more games.

Derby 3-3 Wednesday

Cardiff 1-1 Rotherham

Boro 0-3 Wycombe

Derby survive. Wednesday, Rotherham and Wycombe go down.

Brentford/Bournemouth and Swansea/Barnsley make up the playoff ties.

Cue all the Wednesday fans crying about the points deduction and their "massive" club having to rub shoulders with the likes of Cheltenham Town. 

Excellent 🤣🤣🤣

So you'd rather not have the derbies?

I wanted Derby to go down the most for Wayne Rooney and the shit form by Derby. 1 win and 11 losses, heard something like that on the radio this morning. Wednesday was my second choice.

Et tu, Natural.

Hibs vs St Johnstone is your Scottish Cup final. If you had put a tenner down on St Johnstone doing a cup double at the start of the season I'd presume the payoff would make you one of the 10 richest people in the UK.
