  1. Post update

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Mark Pougatch

    Presenter on BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "It is a very strange situation here. The Stretford End and Sir Alex Ferguson stands are empty, they have been evacuated in the last five minutes. We have been asked to stay in our seats and stay calm and the Bournemouth fans are still in their seats.

    "I cannot tell you what is going on but we are still in our seats so there is no need to panic."

  2. Parts of Old Trafford evacuated

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    So here's a view from the away section which Bournemouth fans still populate.

    There are countless tweets emerging from people who have been asked to leave. 

  3. Post update

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    A PA announcement at Old Trafford says: "Ladies and gentleman please remain in your seats. Please remain calm and in your seats thank you."

    There's confusion at Old Trafford but fans have left in their droves, the players have been taken off the pitch too. I'll keep you posted with everything I hear.

  4. Stretford End evacuated

  5. Has LVG done enough?

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Louis van Gaal

    Louis van Gaal told us this week that he expects to be at Manchester United next season for the final year of his contract.

    This season there were moments where you wondered if he'd make the next game, let alone the end of the campaign.

    The facts are though that United picked up 30 points in their first 19 games of the season. They have 33 from the 18 games since, so there's improvement.

    But has he turned things sufficiently? 

    "We can win the FA Cup," he told reporters this week. "And we are still in the race. How many teams can say that? Not many. Our aim was to qualify. Of course you can say Manchester United need to be champions, yes I know the expectations are like that but I don't think that is realistic."  

  6. How did it come to this?

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Manchester United players look disappointed

    A detailed look at Manchester United's season doesn't need to be too intense before you find the point where trouble arose.

    Between 28 November and 26 December the Red Devils did not win a league match - a run of six games containing three defeats and three draws.

    That's 15 dropped points, had they taken just a handful from those games they'd be comfortably in the top four now.

  7. Um, that's the wrong way guys

    Manchester United v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    We've just seen a bunch of Bournemouth fans go past the office with full pints of beer - walking in the opposite direction of Old Trafford. Lads, the game kicks off in 26 minutes and it's a 20-minute walk...

  8. Get a trim Daley

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Looking at Daley Blind as he bounces around in the warm-up I'd really appreciate it if he got a haircut ahead of next season. He should have time, the Netherlands didn't qualify for Euro 2016 so he should be able to drive somewhere tidy like Disbury and get a short, back and sides.

  9. Tweet of the day?

    Imagine if this happened...

  10. Permutations: United in or out of Europe?

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Europa League and Champions League trophies at Old Trafford

    The Champions League: Manchester United can make it if they win and Manchester City lose. United could qualify if City draw but they'd need to win by an 18-goal margin.

    The Europa League: Manchester United will make it unless they lose AND West Ham avoid defeat AND Southampton win. This would leave United seventh. They'd then need to win the FA Cup to make the Europa League.

  11. Post update

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Manchester United's players are doing some high-knee sprints, then it's into stretching in pairs. They lean on a team-mate to stretch the calf muscle. Now some leg swings to get nice and limber. The Stretford End is about five percent full and those there chat and mingle, paying little attention to the warm up.

    Right, WARNING, next up are some permutations on today's game. They aren't too complicated but be prepared to engage the brain.

  12. Team news

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Man Utd

    Manchester United make three changes to the side which lost at West Ham in midweek as Jesse Lingard, Michael Carrick and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson get starts. Ander Herrera is on the bench, Morgan Schneiderlin is left out in a week where he was omitted from the France Euro 2016 squad.


    Bournemouth make five changes to the XI which drew at home to West Brom.

    Matt Ritchie, Marc Pugh, Josh King, Callum Wilson and Adam Federici are recalled.

  13. Warm-up in the warm

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Bournemouth players

    Bournemouth's players have had a walk around Old Trafford, they've since got stripped off and are now warming up. It's a warm one, sun in the sky, a classic end-of-season temperature.

    My early fear is that Bournemouth have turned up here in awe of their surroundings. I may be wrong but if they have, then this will not end well for them.

  14. Spelling out the obvious

    Man Utd v Bournemoth (15:00 BST)

    Manchester United programme

    "Let's finish on a high" is the message that leads the Manchester United match programme for the day.

    "Nothing less than three points will do" reads the glossy £3.50 publication.

    They aren't wrong. Anything less than a maximum haul today and it's Europa League football at best for Manchester United next season.

  15. End of season vibes

    Man Utd v Bournemouth (15:00 BST)

    Manchester United fans

    I actually went running past Old Trafford this morning. 

    Pubs were pretty busy by 11am and there were countless men selling scarves outside the club store. I saw way too many half and half scarves for sale with 'Man Utd v Bournemouth' etched into them (who actually buys those?).

    It feels a little flat I guess. Not too much to get excited about for home fans. There were one or two away fans milling about. They all looked incredibly relaxed. No relegation worries to contend with I guess so who can blame them?

  16. Still shaking your head?

    That's right folks, we arrive at the final day of the season still a little numb from the shock which went before.

    Each time I see images of Leicester with the trophy I still shake my head. 

    Thankfully this fixture today - unlike many others - carries significance as we zone in on who makes the top four.

    We'll get to that and permutations in a bit. For now though, welcome. Please tweet me on #bbcfootball, I want your reviews of the season.

  17. A season in the bag (almost)


    And so, 37 games after the day where you were so full of hope and expectation, did it play out like you expected?

    A Manchester United fan?

    Ha, of course it didn't....
