Bravo, Premier League: City win the title, Liverpool push them and Andros Townsend puts a cherry on top

Description
There was to be no twist at the weekend and Man City retain the title, while Liverpool finish second with a points haul that would have seen them as champions in any season but this or last. It’s been scintillating stuff and it’s been a pleasure bringing you our thoughts on it throughout the season. And now for some goodbyes. Goodbye to Neil Warnock, gone from the Premier League, never to return, goodbye to Chris Hughton, who did just enough to keep Brighton up, and goodbye to Yaya Toure… we think.  It’s far from goodbye from us though, with the FA Cup, play-offs, Champions League and all the usual nonsense to come.  Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@thefootballramble.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.
