Top 10 conclusions: Premier League weekend, 11-12 May
1. Old Trafford gave a great goodbye to Sir Alex Ferguson. Prawn sandwiches were pushed aside to create some serious atmosphere.
2. Quitting works. Both Manchester United and Everton got good home wins to say goodbye to departing managers.
3. It was a bittersweet weekend for Wigan. They upset the odds to win the FA Cup, but nobody was in the mood to do them any favours in the Premier League yesterday.
4. Mentions of Bobby Tambling in the media are likely to experience a 1000 per cent drop over the next few weeks.
5. It might have been a long time coming, but Rio Ferdinand still remembers how to score when the opportunity presents itself.
6. Jose Bosingwa’s crusade to make the relegation battle as uncompetitive as possible continued with a couple of cock-ups against Newcastle to secure the Magpies’ Premier League future.
7. Suarez-less Liverpool continue to look like a surprisingly potent attacking force.
8. The wheels have well and truly come off at Fulham. Martin Jol’s boys have been mentally donning the Speedos and sunning themselves for a few weeks now.
9. Mauricio Pochettino pulled up the substituion of the weekend. James Ward-Prowse and Jason Puncheon combined to score Southampton’s equaliser against Sunderland just moments after coming off the bench.
10. Spurs dug themselves out of a hole against Stoke, with Emmanuel Adebayor the surprise hero for a second game in succession. All eyes are on Arsenal vs Wigan now ahead of a decisive last day shootout for fourth.
