'Tis the final weekend of the season in the Premiership... I'm going to miss these little ditties. I suppose at some point, we'll be downshifting into MLS. Ahead with the farewell post...

Arsenal 4-2 Wigan. Thierry Henry pounds home a hat trick against Wigan, which seems fitting in the last match ever at Highbury. It must've been a particularly harsh loss, because Wigan defender Pascal Chimbonda handed in a transfer request immediately after the match. Considering they gave up four goals, maybe he should've done it before the game. Anyway, the win squeezes Arsenal into the top four in the league, and thus, into the next year's Champions League, the qualifying round, anyway. Speaking of which...

West Ham 2-1 Tottenham. This is odd. The night before the game, Tottenham had 10 players come down with food poisoning, and presumably, doing a bit of puking. They asked that the game be postponed for 24 hours, but the league said no. So they went out and sucked against West Ham, with Yossi Benayoun getting the game winner for the Hammers.

Manchester United 4-0 Charlton. The win wraps up 2nd place in the league for United, and keeps Liverpool in 3rd, which is nice. Ruud Van Nistelrooy, handsome son of a bitch that he is, was spotted driving away from the stadium about three hours before the match. My guess is that it will be his last such drive away from Old Trafford.
