Depending on what happens with the fixtures this week we could be about to have one of the most exciting final days of the season in living memory.

We could have the title decided depending on Liverpool/ City results.

Any of Chelsea, Arsenal or Spurs could finish 3rd, 4th or 5th. After all the pomp about Chelsea challenging for the title this year they could end up 5th and out of the UCL for next season.

While at the bottom of the table any of Burnley, Leeds or Everton could get relegated on the final day depending on results.

I think this goes to highlight the competitiveness of the EPL in its current guise. Which goes to show the sheer size of the task for EtH to get us competitive again.

As the only thing for United on the final day might be whether we can better West Ham's result to qualify for the Europa League. Otherwise it's the Europa conference league for us.

We have fallen, now we see whether we can pick ourselves back up and climb back to the top again.

I have a lot of hope going into the new season, but I am fully aware that the task ahead is huge and that success for us next season has to be relative to our current situation and not based on historical success.

Hope gets us through the dark times, but in reality, hope is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.

Grim, that's true if hope is all the person is doing.

Just hoping things will get better leaves it up to chance as to whether they will.

Hoping things will improve while actively doing things to try and improve your situation will more often than not improve things.

However, it's impossible to actively do anything to improve your situation without hope that things will get better. Why would you do anything without hope.

I’m extremely hopeful and excited for the next few months. Trying to remain positive, perhaps I should give this place a wide berth for a while!

Shap, sometimes I wish I supported a team that has never won anything, no expectations or disappointments.

Chelsea are guaranteed top 4 and CL. Spurs pretty much nailed on for 4th as they play bottom of the pile Norwich and only need a draw.

The top 6 are who was predicted to be in the top 6 at the start of the season, pretty much mostly in the order most predicted them to finish. (Perhaps Utd 5th instead of 6th) With the bottom 3 in Norwich, Watford and Burnley also most peoples picks for relegation.

Everton with their summer ffp issues and transfers and Benitez in charge were predicted to struggle.

This isn’t hindsight in the slightest. Apart from Brentford, Palace and maybe Wolves, the majority of teams are where they are and performed to the level expected at the start of the season.

Grim, every club has expectations. They just differ depending on circumstances. Maybe the expectation is to win the league, for qualify for Europe, or be comfortable mid-table, avoid relegation, get promoted, make the playoffs ect.

Everton's expectations are to push for a European place, yet they are fighting relegation. I expect many of their fans feel disappointed.

Norwich and Watford fans will be disappointed to be back in the championship next season. Leeds fans didn't expect to be fighting relegation after sacking their most successful manager in over 15 years.

I'd rather be disappointed that we didn't win/ challenge for the title than disappointed that we got relegated.

When I was growing up I watched Liverpools juggernaut winning everything. We were never really in with a shout of a league, had to settle for a Cup here and there.

The club had some cracking players (Whiteside Moses Robson) but seemed to be lurching about never threatening. They then signed a Scot who had a bit of success outside the Old firm, didn't know a lot about him, had seen his team in Europe a couple of times.

Things were a bit up and down and then the EPL era started and the Scot got things going and suddenly everything went ballistic at OT and from Mid teens on all I know was success.

My dad and grandad used to rave about Best Charlton and Edwards most of all and these Legends of past eras and suddenly we had new Legends at OT rather than really just Robson in the 80s.

Fergie changed my expectations of Man Utd rather I imagine like Klopp changed Liverpools now.

Before Fergie no one was demanding or expecting titles, it felt everyone just wanted and hoped we would get there, was more of a wish or dream.
