    The 4-0 against Burnley at the Hawthorns must be up there?

    Thoroughly enjoyed it, way to go the Albion. You got to admit Pulis knows how to defend better than anyone in the league

    Brunt's finish was great. Foot like a traction engine. Very reminiscent of Yaya Toure's at the Liberty this weekend, albeit hit much much harder from Brunt and Courtois takes a lot more beating than Fabianski I'd suggest.

    2 Goals definitely Fabianski's fault. But meh he was solid all season, so not big of a deal

    He's had a very, very good season. It's a shame that it was tarnished with his poor handling and shot-stopping against City, but as Monk said, "I'll allow him a couple of mistakes a season".

    Monk is great indeed when it comes to player coach relationships maybe because he was a player him self not long ago. Haven't seen any Swansea player having complaints and that's just proof that he does his job very well.

    Made a very brave more in shipping out twelve players in pre-season, the majority of which were once friends/teammates of his.

    Fair play to him, he also saved Cork's career He is turning out really handy for Swans second half of the season

    I really wish we could get rid of half the dross in the PL to be honest.

    I wouldn't mind seeing any of the bottom five being replaced. I wish at some stage of the season, in around March, somebody somewhere decides how many teams gets relegated. Rather than just being three, we should mix it up. It's a shame that any of the top six from the Championship won't be playing top-flight football next year.

    Are you sure they don't just look worse because they're playing far better teams, and we'd be saying the exact same thing about any of the top 6 Championship teams, if they were in the Premier League?

    Probably, but it shakes things up. I'd rather watch Bournemouth and Brentford struggling than Hull and Newcastle.

    Lol don't judge that way, I think the same will happen if Bournemouth and Brentford were in EPL. Clubs got their problems too...

    Happens every year. You get the feeling that most of Norwich's spine (Redmond, Martin, Howson etc.) are only there currently because they told the club they'd give it a shot at getting back to the PL for a year. You can't imagine many of them will stick around for another season if they fail in the play-offs.

    Redmond, in particular, seems to have really found an enjoyment in his football in the second tier this season. A few of their players (Bassong, Hoolahan) probably fit the category of 'too good for Championship, not good enough for PL'.

    Fair play to them, they did the right thing and I will be glad if they get promoted. look at Sidwell, Fulham got relegated and he chose to leave for Stoke, he would be really good for Championship but now he barely plays

    Out of the relegated bunch, I can imagine these players doing well for lower half PL sides...

    QPR: Green, Caulker, Phillips, Fer, Austin
    Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Boyd, Barnes, Ings

    Why do people still trust caulker as a premiership centre back? Two years, two relegations and looked suspect in both of them.

    Same as Fer, but I reckon both could be squad players.
