The final day of a disappointing season is upon us, and the team selection is interesting. Contrary to popular speculation, Almunia doesn’t play, Poom starts in goal, Senderos reappears from under the rock he’s been hiding under, and various others may well be taking their final bow.
Our chances of finishing third are poor, given that Liverpool will probably beat Charlton, so the match means far more to Pompey, still chasing a European spot. So I wouldn’t be surprised if we signed off with another loss.
At the bottom, the whole country seems to want Wigan and United to win so West Ham go down (me included), and in the European chase Reading will probably make it precisely because they don’t want to.
And that’s about it. If Wigan go a couple of goals down early Sky will be looking for a way to pretend that the rest of the action is anything other than meaningless. Good luck.
On a complete aside, this site has been up and down more than Lehmann and Drogba in their pushing contest recently. Someone’s getting an angry phone call. Again. But bear with me.
