  2. 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."

  3. 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.

  4. 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."

    Dick Advocaat

    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."

    Arsenal 4-1 West Brom


    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.

    Theo Walcott

    "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."

  11. "We are a complete team"

    Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland


    Jose Mourinho

    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,"

    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. "

    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.

  15. 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."

  16. Post update

    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."

  17. '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.


    "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.

  19. 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'.

    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."

  23. 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
    Image caption: 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.

  24. Milner on the move?

    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.

  27. Post update

    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."

  28. League One latest

    Preston 2-0 Swindon

  29. 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."

  30. 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."

  31. 'England call up was a shock'

    Leicester 5-1 QPR

    Leicester City

    Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy on his England call-up: "I can't believe what a week it has been.

    "It came as a shock that I got the call up. I can't tell you what it feels like. I m still letting it settle in.

    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.

  33. "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.

  34. 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."

    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."

  38. '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."

  39. 'Clyne will stay'

    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."

  40. Post update

    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.

    Newcastle 2-0 West Ham - NEWCASTLE STAYING UP

    Former Newcastle captain Alan Shearer on 5 live

    "I don't think anyone could say Newcastle didn't deserve the result today. There was a great atmosphere, the players showed they wanted to stay in the Premier League and the fans backed them. I'm delighted they will be playing top flight football next season.

    "Jonas Gutierrez scoring at the end is a fantastic story. If there is one guy who really works his socks off it's Jonas, and he was doing it in my time at the club too. After all he has been through I know how much that goal will mean to him today. He has shown incredible commitment to the club.

    "Now if they stop selling their best players, bring in a few new faces and play the best team in cup competitions, you never know, we might just have a very good club on our hands."

    Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown

    Final Score

    "I think John Carver was woefully out of his depth. The atmosphere was incredible today and the fans got behind the side.

    "Mike Ashley, by letting Alan Pardew go, put Newcastle in this position. Carver should stay with the club because he is a Newcastle man through and through but they need somebody else at the helm who can do more."

  44. 'Time for De Gea to say something'

    Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

    De Gea

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal on David De Gea's future: "I cannot say that. He has to say something not I."

    On Falcao: "Also we have tomorrow still a day. Maybe. I have to say something to him."

    On the summer: "For me, that is why I am the manager. You have to decide which players are to go and which have to come. That is a process. It is not so easy. It is waiting for clubs to agree or not. It is hard work, but more for [Chief Exec] Ed Woodward than me. I go on holiday but I will always be in contact."

  45. Post update

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez: "Of course it's been a very tough season but we have learned invaluable lessons that we will use in a good effect to start building towards where we want to be again."

    Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

    Hull City

    Even with parachute payments of £25million in the first season, relegated clubs will face a drop of around £50million in turnover.

    Hull's income in the Championship in 2012-13 was £11.1million, and £84.5million in the Premier League in 2013-14. Wowsers.

  47. Post update

    Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal praises Victor Valdes for his shot-stopping but admits he was not great under the high ball.

  48. 'I still want this job'

    Newcastle 2-0 West Ham - NEWCASTLE STAYING UP

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager John Carver: "I told the players it was going to be a 90-minute rollercoaster and I thought we controlled our emotions quite well. We knew what was happening at Hull but we had to go about our own business, credit to Sam Allardyce for putting out a strong side, there were no gimmes and it was a good performance.

    John Carver

    "The whole season has been difficult, when we went to New Zealand we lost the two lads (in the Malaysia Air crash in Ukraine), and that was a tragedy. I think they were looking down on us today. There have been some tough times but I'm stronger for it. I knew when I looked in the players' eyes they were ready for this. Every player deserves credit. We have not had a good season but I am going to enjoy this moment.

    "I still want this job, I love this club but I know this is a big summer. We have to invest , Mike has said that and that is encouraging. I want a summer where I can bring in the players I want. Today has given me more enthusiasm to do what I want to do."

    "I wouldn't say they've been incredible and I wouldn't say magnificent either, but Chelsea won it.

    "Jose Mourinho is the master of taking pressure off his team, but champions or not there have been deficiencies. They've only lost three games, but Arsenal, Manchester City or Manchester United would not have won the championship in this style. Mourinho has been the pragmatist, he changed their approach, and you have to say they are worthy champions. But the only point I'm making is that not everybody likes it."

    Newcastle fan Jamie Smith: "An absolute fairytale ending as Jonas Gutierrez, comfortably man of the match, seals his already assured place in the affections of Newcastle fans with the goal that seals our Premier League status.

    "Still, sealing 15th place and survival on the final day is no cause for celebration. I'm still in the ground for the sit in protest half an hour after the game, with disillusionment from the season gone being rightly aimed at the owner.

    West Ham

    Former West Ham boss Sam Allardyce:

    "There was not a contract talked about, but it is probably right for both of us to move on. I've enjoyed this opportunity, it's been a great venture. I take great pride in what I have achieved. The team, the club is in a hugely more successful position than when I took over. Everything I was asked to do I've delivered. It's probably the right time for us both to move on, I really enjoyed the ride.

    Sam Allardyce
    Image caption: Watch this space; Is Big Sam on for a Big Sabbatical?

    "I think it is time for me to go, they said I was not going to get a new contract, but we just said 'that's it', and I'm off. The relationship was mostly with David Sullivan on the football side of things, and I thanked him. I enjoyed it, four years is a long time in this game, and it is time for us to move on.

    "We had a slow start to the season, but progressively, we got stronger, and from January onwards we got competitive.

    Arsene Wenger

    "We have qualified directly for next season's Champions League. But we want more. We want to challenge for the Premier League title. But first we want to win the FA Cup next weekend.

    "There's no qualifying game for the Europa league and finishing fifth is not bad anyway. We got to the League Cup final too so it's been a productive season."

    Chelsea receive Premier League trophy

    Meanwhile Chelsea are in the process for picking up the Premier League spoils.

    The whole squad are being introduced one-by-one to the crowd as they head up for their medals. Youngesters such as Nathan Ake and Dominic Solanke are being invited up onto the podium as well.

    Cesc Fabregas has started dancing as he steps up. He has gone early there. There is still half the squad to be read out.

  63. 'Lampard is a big loss'

    Man City 2-0 Southampton

    Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart: "It was important for us to finish with a win. Frank Lampard's an unbelievable character. It's a big loss for the Premier League.

    "I'm excited about next season, we'll be chasing and we'll be chasing hard - we want to win everything. I'm proud to win the Golden Glove but it's fair to say that Fraser Forster would have won it if he hadn't been injured for a bit. It's a personal award in a disappointing season."

  64. 'Schoolboy defending'

    Leicester 5-1 QPR

    QPR boss Chris Ramsey: "It was a very frustrating day and some of our defending and tracking back was schoolboy.

    "There were a few positives and I can't fault the players for their effort but we are in this position because we haven't had the quality to take chances when they come, and because we've made too many errors in defence.

    "We had travelling fans here again, which was fantastic. It was a disappointing result for them so we want to make sure the next season is going to be a happier one for them.

    "It is no secret that there is going to have to be some major changes because of the position we are in.

    "We haven't maintained our status in the Premier League so something has to change in order to get the club back to where we need to be."

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is told by a television interviewer that the club have released a statement saying that his contract will not be renewed.

    "I knew that already," he laughs.

    He gives a very dignified little speech, thanking West Ham owners for the chance to manage the club and saying how much he has enjoyed working with the players and staff.

    More to come on that.

    Allardyce to leave

    West Ham

    A West Ham statement has already been published: "West Ham United will begin the search for a new manager after the club decided not to renew the contract of Sam Allardyce following the conclusion of the 2014-15 season.

    "Joint-Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold will now oversee the recruitment process for a new manager to lead the club into one of the most exciting eras in its history.

    "The Board has already compiled a shortlist of replacements for Allardyce and will be making significant transfer funds available for the successful candidate.

    "From our point of view there isn't a more exciting job in the Premier League at present."

  67. Lampard's farewell

    Frank Lampard speaking after scoring in his final Premier League match: "I couldn't have wished for anything for else. I'm proud of all of it. For a young boy with a dream to play in the Premier League, to go to my home-town club West Ham and then go to Chelsea and win everything, it doesn't get better. I'm a lucky boy, to come to a big club like this for a season, I've made a lot of friends."

    "There will be some major surgery needed for this team and there will be a major inquest into what happened this season.

    Ashley relieved

    Mike Ashley looks a mighty relieved man.

    The Newcastle owner puffs out his cheeks as he looks down on the celebrations.

    The mood at St James' Park is a strange one though. The relief last only a few minutes, before it is replaced by anger that they were in this perilous position at all.

    Banners are unfurled. One says "we don't demand a team who wins, we demand a club that tries", another displays their end of season run followed by a single word: "Inquest?"

    A sit-in protest is planned and looks like it is settling in for the long haul.

    Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

    Paul McShane, bloodied and bandaged, has taken this very badly indeed. He looks a broken man. He put his body on the line today but it wasn't to be.

    Even if they had won today then Hull would have gone down. They just didn't do enough.

    An air of resignation, of acceptance rather than outrage or dejection in the stands. They knew this was the likely outcome. Eight wins, and 33 goals, have not done the job.


    Hull 0-0 Man Utd - HULL RELEGATED

    ALL OVER. Steve Bruce takes the hand of former team-mate Ryan Giggs but it's of no consolation. A polite round of applause ripples around the stadium.

    Plenty of anguish on the faces of the Hull players, the chairman offers a weak smile. What now for this club?
