The End of The World?
As you will have probably realized by now the world hasn't ended as suggested by a few nutters out there. But for those teams involved in the premiership relegation battle, their worlds might end today. On the last day of the premiership season, with West Ham already relegated, two more teams are certain of impending doom.
Wigan, Blackpool, Birmingham, Wolves and Blackburn could all suffer their own worlds end today if they don't produce the right result.
Wigan with 39 points travel to Stoke and are in good form but I think Stoke will be too strong for them,after losing two consecutive games against Man City,Stoke owe it to their fans to put on a good show in their last game of the season.
Blackpool who are also on 39 points have, in my opinion,the toughest game out of all the relegation candidates because they are up against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Man Utd haven't lost at home all season and with the premiership title in the bag they will probably play with a certain amount of freedom.I might be wrong and this might backfire on Man Utd because Blackpool are an unpredictable team and as the saying goes: Anything can happen.
Birmingham are also on 39 points but have been in free-fall since their Carling Cup victory over Arsenal.The Blues travel to White Hart Lane to face a Tottenham side looking to secure fifth place in the premiership to ensure Europa League football for next season.I can't see anything other than a win for Spurs and this will place Birmingham City in dire trouble if either Wigan or Blackpool get a positive result.
Wolves and Blackburn,both on 40 points,face each other at the Molineux with only a win for either team securing their premiership place for next season.I think that Wolves,after two important wins in their last two outings,have the upper hand and, depending on results elsewhere this will leave Blackburn in deep relegation trouble.
All in all I wouldn't like to say who stays and who goes but one things for sure, today's games will be the end of the world for two more teams and their sets of fans.
