California. Duh.
And that should pretty much end Cardiff's stay in the Premier League.

Everyone wave goodbye to Neil Warnock...again.

Palace’s third goal is a heartbreaker for Cardiff. Townsend’s medium-pace short glances off the near post, deflects off the far post, and just dribbles ovrr the line. Unless they get three in 15 minutes they’re going down.

Second year in a row that Palace delivers a death blow to a team (last year was Stoke).

You’re welcome, Brighton.

You either play the continuation or you give the red. Not both.
I think you could technically play advantage and give the red but you were always going to score more I’d have preferred the red by a lot. You just can’t have players handling on the goal line and get away with it, its the kind of call that just can’t be missed

I get it, but they rarely call it that way.

Take the famous Luis Garcia goal in the CL semifinals against Chelsea that Mourinho continues to whine about to this day didn't go over the line. It may not have, but if the ref didn't give it, Cech is off 4 minutes into the game and Liverpool have a penalty.

VAR is coming to the PL next year, correct?

I wouldn’t know which one of these sides had 91 and fighting for a title and which 42 and in 15th if they were wearing plain kits- that’s a compliment to Newcastle

I mean it when I say this is Liverpool’s season. I’ve been in the other end of this where no matter how hard you try to fuck it up you keep getting the breaks you need. As a City fan I’m hoping like hell against it but you can’t make up stuff like Liverpool’s season.

This was the foul that led to the free kick (own)goal, btw. Bad calls like this happen every match and this could easily read like sour grapes. I’m legit angry about the handball but earnestly impressed by Liverpool always finding a way. You’ll have a nervy final match either way but I don’t see how it doesn’t somehow break your way

I've seen Rafa frustrate teams with better talent from both sides. This game was scaring the crap out of me.
