The big game is the late game today and I'm a bit torn. On one hand, we need Romelu Lukaku to finally do us some loanee favor (unlike our very own Courtois, or Liverpool's Borini and Assaidi) and put City to the sword so that we can finish ahead of them. And then St. Pulis would take care of Liverpool and we're campiones, campiones, ole ole ole...
On the other hand... maybe City should win this one and keep the pressure on Liverpool. Should Liverpool slip up, then we could hope for a miracle from either Villa (they'd need referee help, obviously) or West Ham's 19th century siege tactics. Either way, it's a long shot.
Also, COME ON YOU GUS POYETS! Don't let our (and Mike Dean's) gifts go to waste!

At times perhaps appears a bit immature, often careless on D, but does unbelievable things on offense. I love you, 20 Cent.

(Not really.) But this guy barehands the foul ball while holding his phone and his beer in the other hand, spilling neither. Bit less impressive once you realize it's canned beer. But still. AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!
