Ings on his way out


The worst kept secret in the north west football scene has finally been resolved, as Burnley striker Danny Ings has confirmed he will leave the club this summer.

He said: ""It was quite an emotional day for me today. I think everybody knows what's been going on off the pitch and I wanted to finish my last game here in style.

"I'm just over the moon that I managed to get the winning goal in front of all the fans that travelled."

Albion name retained list

West Brom

Who needs a close season? West Brom aren't messing about, they've already named their retained list.

The Baggies will be taking up 12-month options on Boaz Myhill and Claudio Yacob and are due to open talks with out-of-contract defender Gareth McAuley.

However, Youssouf Mulumbu, Chris Baird and Jason Davidson have been released.

Goodbye Steven Gerrard

Stoke 6-1 Liverpool


"I am sure Steven wasn't anticipating the manner of that being his last performance, but credit to him he was trying to drive his team on and it was great he got that reception from our supporters when he scored," said Stoke boss Mark Hughes.

"It is only right and proper we recognise the impact he has had in English football and at his club as well.

"To a man everyone applauded that goal. I wish him well, he has been a credit to his country and his club as well."

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat: "The way we played, free of thinking about going down, was really good in some parts. We gave cheap goals but they deserved it.

"I will give that answer on my future next week. The players have responded excellently, with their commitment to the club, to get 12 points makes me very proud of them.

"My assistant said to me we made the impossible, possible. I have a big decision to make this week."

Allardyce to leave West Ham

Aaron Turnbull: Brendan Rodgers to West Ham.

'We need to challenge for the title'

Arsenal hat-trick hero Theo Walcott: "You need to be ready when giving the opportunity. I've been out for a year, but I feel great. I've got to thank the manager for having faith in me.

"I think it's been an up and down campaign. We've had a great run. It came to an end a few weeks ago. We've finished third, and if we win the FA Cup next week, that's a good season.

"But I think that next season, we need to be challenging for the title, with the team we've got."

"We are a complete team"

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "I think we have everything. Can anybody say we don't play fantastic football? No. Well, they can, but it's not true. We have art in our game but we also have fantastic spirit, organisation and pragmatism. We are a complete team and that is why we are champions.

"It was a bit of a risk to come here for a second time but with a new team a new generation we are champions again, and as a Chelsea supporter I feel it a double way,"

"He's a nice guy"

Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland


John Terry and Didier Drogba

A lot of love between Chelsea captain John Terry and the departing Didier Drogba as they speak to Match of the Day.

Terry; "It has been five years since we won the title. It has been a long time and hurts when you see other teams lift it.

"It is an unbelievable day - the whole squad have been top class from day one - but a sad one with Didier leaving today."

Drogba: "I knew they were going to do something to mark my last game. I love John. I have played with him for many years, I know him and his family and he is not the guy that people think that he is. He is a nice guy. "

Allardyce to leave West Ham

Greg Howarth: How much has Allardyce done for them? The thanks he gets is a knife in the back... some teams in this league are shocking.

Sean Freel: Why does big Sam get the bullet anytime he has a decent season. He will get a big club soon.

David Clark: Typical, one of the best and most reliable managers in the Premier League and he gets the chop. Good luck Sam, I hope you get a much better deal with an honest club.

Thanks for coming

Man Utd

Manchester United have decided not to keep Radamel Falcao following the end of his season-long loan from Monaco.

Falcao is due to speak to manager Louis van Gaal on Monday.


But it has already been decided to release the 29-year-old after he scored just four goals in 29 appearances.

The Colombian missed today's 0-0 draw with Hull due to injury, after which manager Louis van Gaal said: "We still have a day. I have to say something to him."

Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown

Final Score

"Chelsea were strong at the beginning of the season and I thought the Arsenal record of the Invincibles was in trouble - they were that strong.

"It is whether they can hold on to the title and what changes they will bring in. That is the true mark of champions - that they'll already be looking towards the future.

"Chelsea are a long way off reaching the semi-finals in Champions League and competing with Barcelona and Bayern Munich but Jose Mourinho knows how to win."

'No fears'

Fan view

Hull City

Hull City fan and blogger Rick Skelton, 35: "If there is a right way to go down, I think Hull City have shown it today. One of the many disappointments is that the incredible spirit, fight and urgency of today has been missing recently.

Getty Images

"Relegation holds no fears. It's frustratingly needless but unlike last time (2010) we have financial protection, saleable assets and a strong core. We also have a manager who specialises in promotion so I'd keep him despite his flaws.

"My biggest concern is that the owners are somehow able to achieve their hideous, divisive change of name out of the spotlight. Relegation is part and parcel. That would kill my love for my club."

Allardyce to leave West Ham

James, Wokingham: West Ham getting rid of Big Sam will be a classic example of not realising what you had until you lose it. Embarrassing decision.

Toby: West Ham looking to bigger things. Great academy, money available and new stadium around the corner. Only one manager good enough for this 'project', Jurgen Klopp is on the way to the Prem, get ready.

The West Ham way

West Ham

BBC Sport understands that West Ham's search for a new manager to replace Big Sam will see them after a boss who 'has a desire to play 'The West Ham way'.

Whatever that means...

Manager reaction

Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland


Chelsea manger Jose Mourinho: "I know that our rivals are not going to accept this title and they are going to fight and there are three or four teams that will be aiming for us and we have to be better - me, the players and our squad.

"Maybe they need some fresh blood to keep them under pressure. They know me they know that they are not going to keep their positions on the basis of this year."

Moyes for the Magpies?

Newcastle 2-0 West Ham - NEWCASTLE STAYING UP

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"If you asked me to put money on John Carver being Newcastle's manager next season I would say no. I think Mike Ashley is an astute enough man to realise he has had his wake-up call, and Carver staying would not say the club is going in the right direction.

David Moyes
Coming back to the Prem?

"I think David Moyes would be a good fit. Moyes is quite happy with Real Sociedad in Spain but is very keen to prove himself back in England."

That's two clubs Moyes has been linked with in the last hour.

Milner on the move?

Man City 2-0 Southampton

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "James Milner will make a decision at the end of the season, he must decide his future and what is best for him."

Dybala signs for Juve

Paulo Dybala

A bit of breaking transfer news from over in Italy where Palermo striker Paulo Dybala - reportedly a target for Arsenal among others - has confirmed that he will join Juventus next season.

The 21-year-old scored 13 goals in 35 games in Serie A and is expected to cost around 40m euros (£28m).

"Juventus are the side who wanted me the most," the Argentine told Sky Sport Italia.

"They made a real effort to sign me and this is why I made my decision. I can certainly win the Scudetto there, as they are a winning team. I too always play to win and can find success with them."

Garth has cracked it. If you don't score, you go down.

Any Hull players likely to be snapped up by their Premier League rivals?

Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"Steve Bruce has already alluded to this but Hull have been relegated simply because they've not been scoring enough goals. I saw them at Crystal Palace, where they won, but needed five chances to convert one. It's been their problem throughout the season. QPR and Burnley struggled to score too, and guess what? They went down as well."

I have no doubts about my future - Pellegrini

Man City 2-0 Southampton

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini speaking to BBC Sport: "It was important to say goodbye to Frank [Lampard] by winning the game, it was a beautiful afternoon for the fans and for the squad.


"I am not happy with the way we worked the whole year, we lost too many points against teams in relegated positions. We lost stupid points, but I assure you we are going to grow as a club next season. The most important target for us is to recover the title next season, and I believe we are not far away from doing that.

"I never had any doubt in my mind all season [that I will stay in charge]. I know what the owners think, I speak with them all the time, they are not owners who think because you do not win the title you must go out."

Manager reaction

Leicester 5-1 QPR

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson on Jamie Vardy's England call-up: "Being called up regardless of whatever anyone else says is a reflection on of his development as a player and of the sort of team he has played in.

"If you are going to break in to the England side you need to be playing exceptionally well - but also your team-mates to be playing well as well."

'England call up was a shock'

Another season is done

Wasiyullah Buyde: Three legends - Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard & Didier Drogba - signed off from the Premier League. Once in a generation players!

Henri Colens: Is it me, or isn't it time Rafa renewed his duel with Jose? Rodgers is a good manager but he may have too much on his plate.

John Dykes: 54 points, positive goal difference, six points shy of Southampton in seventh. What a job Mark Hughes is doing at Stoke.

"If the owners want me to go - I will go"

Stoke 6-1 Liverpool


Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "I have always said if the owners want me to go I will go. But I still feel I have a lot of offer here. There is a lot that's happened there this year that has made the job tough.

"Performances like today don't help me and I'm fully aware of that."

Rodgers signed a new long-term deal last summer. If the owners want him to go, he will go with a chunky pay-off.

Manager reaction

Leicester 5-1 QPR

Leicester City

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson: "We took a bit of time to get going. It is always difficult when you've achieved certain objectives to get what you want.

"The end product is a really good win but we didn't quite hit some of the standards we would have liked but we did more than enough in the end.

"It was a shame it wasn't a clean sheet as well as a win. But there are lots of positives and it is always important to try and finish a season with an outcome you can build on for next year.

"We are not kidding ourselves in terms of how we need to move forward, because although it has been a great end to the season, it needed to be."

'Not good enough'

Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

Hull City

Hull boss Steve Bruce: "It is one of those awful experience. This is a particularly low time. We are not in the big league.

"Too many times I have come out and said we have not done bad but we have not scored. That is 17 or 18 times we have not scored.

Steve Bruce

"I have to take the brunt of it. We have not been good enough. We believed at the start of the season we would have enough.

"It is not a time for excuses. You have to take your medicine and come back as strongly as you can.

"I am exhausted at the minute. My future is for others to decide. Cuts are inevitable. A lot of talking and soul-searching has to be done in the next few weeks. We are all sad at the minute. I am sure there are a few conversations to be had, which will be had in due course."

'We were very, very poor'

Stoke 6-1 Liverpool


Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "We made too many mistakes defensively and individually. We were beaten too easily and were not competitive enough. We were very, very poor in that first half.

"It was always going to be a big job in the summer and today's result would certainly ratify that.

"We understand the job ahead and we will be much better than today going forward.

"We have got to be much better than we have been for the last six or eight weeks. We will work tirelessly to look to put on a better show next season."

'Clyne will stay'

Man City 2-0 Southampton

Nabil Hassan

BBC Sport

"Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has just finished his post-match media conference and spoke of his "pride" after the ended their season seventh in the Premier League with a club-record total of 60 points.

"Koeman also says he is "confident" Nathaniel Clyne will sign a new contract and the club should know either way next week.

"He still hopes they can make it into Europe and that it will be very hard to improve on this season."

Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

Steve Bruce makes a point of congratulating the teams who have stayed up - particularly Leicester - and refuses to have any talk of excuses.

He also says cuts will be inevitable at the club and concedes that his future is not up to him to decide now.
