So as far as news goes, it seems Moyes is pretty much the new manager. That right enough?

    Yup. A good move for Moyes and United.

    Roberto Martinez seems to be the bookies fav for the now vacent Everton job. Whilst I like the guy for his football philosophy (and dress sense that's up there with Hoots) I just think it would risk ruining the stability Moyes has created for them over the last decade. He really hasn't taken Wigan forward at all, despite having some very good players in his sides and spending 5+ million on multiple occasions. A tough man to replace for a club like Everton that's for sure.

    Moyes is a good choice for sure. As long as he doesn't change our philosophy to the lumping it to the edge of the box then attacking that Everton do. That was how United played in the mid-90s.
    To be honest my main concern is that we offload Rooney and Nani (who has talent, but just isn't consistent) etc. without bringing in somebody huge like Ronaldo to fill the gap

      Gareth Bale will move on from Spuds soon. If it isn't Spain it would probably be Utd.

      Hmm...I can see him staying another year. I know they haven't won anything (Champions League win persuaded Ronaldo to stay at Utd. for another year), but I think he'll want to see if he can carry his form for more than one season and repay Spurs for the time they've invested in him. I could be wrong though. And if he did come to Utd. he'd be the ideal heir to Giggs' number when he retires, which looks like at the end of the 2013/14 season. So us signing him then would be ideal :)

      Bale seems like an odd one to me, I can't gauge his loyalty to Spurs.

      If he does show an intention to leave, Daniel Levy won't make it cheap for the buyer.

        Oh no, now Neil Lennon is odds on to take over at Everton. Winning the SPL with that group of players is probably about the equivilent of me winning a kickboxing match against a 3 year old. Ok, he does ok in the Champions League but even a lot of that is down to the Celtic Park crowd.

        Another name on the list is my first footballing boyhood hero, Malky Mackay. Seems to have done well in the Championship and cup last season iirc. I hope to see him manage Norwich one day.

        He's actually done a bad job at coasting Celtic to the title as well. I mean sure they still did, but they've dropped nearly 40 points this season which is pretty poor for the advantage they're given. In many seasons when Rangers were there to take potentially 12 off them, they still scored way more points than they have this season.

        Mackay has an easy job at Cardiff as well, so we'll see if he shows real managerial ability in the season to come.

          New Wolves manager, no-one gives a crap.

          New Man Utd manager, it's all over the news.

          True story

          I think it'll be the case for a while now, although I wouldn't expect Wolves' news to get any serious coverage until they win promotion.

            The national media care more about Sir Alex's bowel movements than 99% of football teams through the leagues.

            Nearly FA cup time. My head says a tragic Wigan loss knocking their confidence for last prem games but my heart will support the underdog.

            Wigan have been better in the first half if you ask me. I still think they'll lose unfortunately.

              Classic Wigan really.

              If they do go down they're going to lose quite a few of these players. Could easily see them dropping through the leagues over the next decade.

              It's certainly possible, especially with Whelan stepping down in the next few years.

              It'll be tough next season balancing the Europa League with the Championship if they do go down.

                Well done Wigan.

                I guess that's what can happen when a team come out not caring/expecting an easy win.

                Hopefully that's the end of Mancini.

                Congratulations to Wigan, McManaman will go far next season whether he's at Wigan or not.

                All you pessimists :P Rumour has it around here that Pellegrini is moving to City- a good coach for once. Will be interesting to see how it works. Also apparently Falcao is going to Monaco since some billionaire bought it and wants to make it the best team in Europe by spending millions, you know, the usual.

                Also Barça are 45 minutes away from winning the league unless Madrid can turn this match upside-down, they are losing 1-0 and anything but a victory would mean Barça win by default.

                We're English, it's natural for us to be pessimistic. :( I suspect Pellegrini will be far more successful than Mancini, who is very lucky to have kept his job this long.

                No surprise Barca clinched the title, it's been the obvious conclusion for a while. Hopefully Madrid will manage a reasonable challenge next season.

                I suspect Arceus17 won't be the happiest of people at the moment, a late Porto goal put them ahead in the Portuguese title race with both teams' final games probably just a formality of taking the win. It was a brilliant context for that match beforehand though, either Benfica or Porto could go top and both were unbeaten up to that point.

                Well, Barça did win. Who would have thought!

                And so the exciting 2012-13 season ends here (well, there is still an insane fight for the Europa League spots, the CL playoff spot and the relegation, but, as long as the title fight has been concerned...).

                    Supporting England willingly? Crazy.

                    Massive nerves for the Norwich game in a few hours.

                    By contrast, I get to sit back and enjoy the rest of the season now my team's torrid one is over.

                    I think Norwich have a good chance in the game today and a point might be enough to keep them safe before the last game.

                      A very entertaining day in football today. The entire coverage from Old Trafford has just been spectacular. Amazing send off for SAF.

                      A very good win for your lot and I think Norwich will have an easier time staying up this coming season.

                      Sunderland can still go down and hopefully they will.

                        Will watch MOTD as I missed his send off.

                        Has been a funny old season. Staying up without getting in the forward the manager wanted so badly, losing our best player (Ruddy) for over half of the season, only losing 4 league games at home (7, 7, 4) and now sitting 12th but fans are still calling for the sacking of Hughton. If we had Ruddy fit all season who knows where we could have finished.

                        Next up Citeh, we'll either do well or get smashed.

                        As for the relegation battle I'll be hoping for the version where Villa go down. Show us what you've got Wigan. Oh it feels good to be saying that.
