Right. Just a heads up...as is the norm, we’ll be shutting down the 2017/2018 PL thread at the end of this week. There will be a transfer rumour thread opening in the next day or so (Bale to United, Barry Chuckle to Liverpool) and then - Magic Mike will be opening a PL thread after the World Cup as his prize for supporting a team that had the good fortune to be bought by a state-funded entity that needed to funnel cash overseas.

If I was to sum up this season in 3 sentences...

1. United got better, but also got worse
2. While I don’t like City, I’ve remembered how much I really, really hate Liverpool
3. The press’s reaction to Sterling’s tattoo has finally convinced me to stop reading newspapers

The Sterling tattoo thing is outrageous.

My summary in 3:
1. City were a total joy to watch and deserve all the records they broke.
2. Klopp is a total fraud who couldn't win the best manager in Liverpool final.
3. Arise Saint Mark.

Is it true they are building a statue of Karius outside of Old Trafford after what happened at the weekend?

This has been a season to forget, and I am trying to purge from my memory the thought that Sam Allardyce was Everton manager. The fact that Everton finished 8th is a reflection on how bad the teams outside the top 6 have been. Arsenal were awful, but still finished 6th. Burnley were 7th. Mental stuff.
