    Just how bad were Bayer Leverkusen last night. If they have gone 51 games unbeaten in Germany then that is a damning indictment of the state of German football.

    Any EFL League 1 team could have played better than that.

    Atalanta were superb with and without the ball, deserved to win and almost humiliated the Bundesliga Champions.

    Unbelievable, wasn't it? Nothing short of a humiliation.

    Dortmund are in the champions league final, so it can't be that bad

    Atalanta were abs brilliant and got the tactical battle spot on. Xavi for the first time this season missed, it does happen but should not take away what has been a superb season. His non use of the front man was a big hole and they had no-one to hit. I would also imagine the nerves hit in, it has been a long time. Only their 3rd ever final, and 1st since the champions league final of 01/02.

    Bayern/Leverkusen/Dortmund/Leipzig/Stuttgart will give plenty of teams problems in the champions league next year

    What a nice surprise for United today and at last we saw them play as a team. Everyone from the centre halves to even Rashford put in a **** of a shift! I was expecting City to thump us if I am honest

    Gary Neville needs to be careful.

    The Gallagher brothers only narrowly lost in that fight with the German Estate Agents :)

    The first prediction for next season's Premier League is in.

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/sport/football/predicting-the-2024-2025-premier-league-table/ar-BB1n6Lpt?ocid=msedgntp&pc=U531&cvid=eb1c710d4abc40b8a84c2437d2ce99b7&ei=11

    We all know that predictions this early, before Transfer windows or a few Managerial appointments have taken place, is a bit bonkers. But thought I would give my own thoughts, primarily from a betting angle.

    1. Much as it pains me to say so, looks like it may be between Man City and Arsenal. And I think the better value may well be on Arsenal. Due to City being potentially distracted with those 115 charges, possible points deductions, and Guardiola looking like he may leave. Although no-one should discount City
    2. 3-6 are likely to be bad bets price-wise to be Top 4. Variety of reasons-new Managers, first time in Champions League, Financial worries, and in Man Utd's case a weak squad.
    3. Value for Top 4? Spurs and Palace. Depending on the price, of course
    4. I would be surprised if Bournemouth finish as high as 10th. Or Brighton as low as 15th
    5. I think the Relegation candidates are likely to be the Bottom 5 in that list. If Southampton are bigger odds than Leicester to go down, I'd take that all day. Same goes for Brentford-particularly if they sell their Striker and lose their Manager

    Chelsea in advanced talks with Enzo Maresca to make Leicester manager new head coach.

    Chelsea are closing in on Enzo Maresca as their new head coach, with the Leicester boss now in prime position to succeed Mauricio Pochettino.

    The Blues have been impressed by the depth and breadth of his knowledge about their squad in talks with his representatives, and are impressed by his single-minded focus on the way Chelsea want to play and his desire for the job.

    His obsession with possession and positional play have made him the leading candidate.

    He is now their preferred choice to replace Mauricio Pochettino, and Chelsea have asked Leicester for permission to speak with the 44-year-old.

    An appointment could be made in the next few days if and when an agreement is reached with Leicester over compensation. Chelsea are willing to pay compensation, with a fee of around £10m expected.

    I am guessing it is as simple as the odds were compiled before the Result of the Play-Off Final was known.

    Brentford look big at 7/2 to me. Think that should be more like 7/4.
    Whereas Everton's odds are terrible...

    @TheEdge949


    Those prices must be BEFORE yesterday's match.

    Southampton are generally around 7/4 to go straight back down.
