Mackem Misery, Bye To Big Sam And Double Bubble For Chelsea?

Manager Merry Go Round

After the last day of the league campaign Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons speak to fans of three clubs finishing the season in very different ways. Watford ended their campaign by getting hammered and home. Now manager-less going into the summer Bradley from Watford FC Blog tells us how it went wrong for Walter Mazzarri, what the new manager might have to work with and what he would like to see from whoever takes charge at Vicarage Road. Things are much brighter at Bournemouth, with The Cherries finishing ninth, their highest top flight finish to date. Supporter James Roach describes how Bournemouth managed that feat, and what can be done to push the club on even further in the future. Finally it is judgement day for David Moyes as Sunderland decide whether to stick with the manager going into The Championship next season. Stephen Goldsmith from Wise Men Say Podcast tells us what he would do if he was in charge and what whoever the manager is needs to do in the summer to make sure Th...

The Big Six

Title Wins and Owner Sins

There may be one week left in the English Premier League, but it was a week of resolution at top and bottom of the table. Safe for another year are Swansea and Crystal Palace. We speak to Guto Llewelyn and Robbie Scotcher about their respective victories at the weekend, how their seasons have been turned round and what the clubs need to do to ensure they aren't in the same situation next season. Not so fortunate are Hull City, who will play next season in The Championship. Les Motherby, editor of Amber Nectar fanzine details how the players and manager were up against it from the start due to problems with the ownership. We discuss the fractious relationship between fans and owners and what is likely to happen in the summer. Ending on a high, we speak to Rebecca Knight after Chelsea were crowned champions on Friday night. Rebecca tells us the story of a title win that looked very unlikely in September and what The Blues need to do to challenge on two fronts next season. Football wit...

Top To Bottom

Super Swans, Solemn Stoke and Magnificent Magpies

Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons bring you all the big stories from the weekend's Premier League action from the fans who were there to witness them. Firstly it was a huge weekend for Swansea City, who are out of the relegation zone after a win against Everton. We ask Guto Llewelyn about what the atmosphere was like as the Hull result came through in South Wales and how Fernando Llorente has put his body on the line for The Swans this season. He also details a fantastic gesture from the Swansea players to pay for the entire away end at Sunderland this week. Much more downbeat is Elliot Hackney from Bear Pit TV. Stoke twice led Bournemouth on Saturday but failed to hold on. Elliot shares his frustrations on how a season which could have had promise has been stifled by a manager who may be on borrowed time. Finally they are not in the Premier League yet, but they will be soon. Newcastle are back as Champions and no one is more pleased that Michael Martin, editor of True Faith fanzine. M...

Chelsea Cruising, City Crashing and Sunderland Sunk

Rob Gutmann is your host this week and is joined by John Gibbons, Adam Smith, Mo Stewart and Arsenal fan Sam Walkerdine to discuss all the important Premier League action this weekend. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur play at different ends of the weekend, but who has the advantage? Spurs playing first to put the pressure on, or Chelsea playing against a Middlesbrough side who's rivals results might see them relegation before they kick off. As part of the discussion we get the opinion of Chelsea supporter Rebecca Knight. Below those clubs the battle for fourth hots up. We discuss Liverpool and Manchester City's tricky home fixtures this weekend, with the help of Ashan Naeem from Manchester City podcast 93:20 podcast. Finally it is bleak at the bottom as Ste Goldsmith from Wise Men Say can attest. He tells us in depth exactly what has gone wrong for Sunderland, after which we analyse the chances of survival of the other teams in the relegation picture. As always, our opinions come from ...

Chelsea Cruising, City Crashing and Sunderland Sunk

How to Define Success

John Gibbons and Mo Stewart bring you the big stories from the weekends Premier League straight from the fans who were there. Middlesbrough finished a good week with a hard fought draw against Manchester City at The Riverside. It might be too little too late for this season, but author and Boro fan Daniel Gray tells us how it might still be a good sign for the future of the team, and to the chances of caretaker manager Steve Agnew being given the job full time. Burnley have finally won away from home. Tyrone Marshall from The Lancashire Telegraph describes how the side's approach to away fixtures has changed over the season and how a controversial team selection paid off for manager Sean Dyche. We also talk to Tyrone about the latest developments in the Joey Barton soap opera. Finally Ste Armstrong from United We Stand fanzine joins us to talk about what is needed to help Manchester United limp over the line this season, and why two trophies should always be seen as a successful sea...

How to Define Success

All To Play For

This week on 5050 Football we are focussed on the top of the table. It's all about the title. All about the top four. Spurs, Chelsea. Arsenal, Everton. What a double header Sunday will be. So much to be decided. Everyone will know so much more after the weekend and everyone can't keep grinding results. The top four picture remains uncertain. Liverpool may or may not be in crisis. This is the on going situation. Neil Atkinson is joined on this week's 5050 by Paul Duhaney, Rob Gutmann and The Blue Room's Paddy Boyland.
