    How GLORIOUS Is It To Arrive At PL Final Weekend And Not Give The Slightest Sh*t?

    It's a state of bliss, far removed from the agony and the ecstasy of those clubs going through end of season torment.

    In the wise words of the blessed St. Bono: "Thank God it's them instead of you"

    Win 6-0 v Liverpool? Lose 6-0 v Liverpool? It's much of a muchness

    It's a weekend to savour.

      Agree with the sentiment, but would be good to get something from the game and maybe go up a few places. An extra few £m for Uncle Tony would be nice. And we know he’d leave it in the club and use for strengthening anyway

      Looking forward to our pre-season exhibition friendly match at Liverpool.

      Then all thoughts to England, Maty Ryan and maybe Izquierdo in the World Cup - along with the transfer dealings and the main batch of friendlies starting in July.

      Not giving a slightest shit is a bit strong - this game is potentially worth millions of quid!

      Of course I won't feel too downbeat if we lose, but a win could put us in a stronger position next transfer window.

      Besides, it would be lovely to break our terrible streak against them.

      It's fab, it's like rocking up for a preseason friendly all excited and then realising you don't give a shit and wondering why you bothered. Roll on next season and the return of competitive, meaningful footy.

      You're completely correct on one level. Yet on another level no fan (unless they happen to be also chairman) ever went into a play-off final stressing about whether their club wins or loses fifty million quid or a hundred million quid or whatever. It's far more VISCERAL than that. That's why fans cry.

      I appreciate we are not under the stress of needing to win but there's a lot to play for ,10 million pound and finishing anything up to 10th. For some players it might also have some significance e.g. Ulloa for instance if he has a good game it might decide whether he stays.

      Rather looking forward to 'attackers v defenders' tomorrow. 2-0 or less and I think they'll have done well.

      Liverpool may keep us down to that if they can keep Murray quiet.

      Picked up my daughter last night from a friends house, mothers fiancée is a big Liverpool fan, asked me if we can at least let them get a draw, I said I will have a word and see what I can do.
      I may watch the match with him for a laugh, or as its a nice day and the tide is right I may sit on a Cornish beach, fish until sunset have a pint in the local beach pub with some fish & chips and have a look at the result when I get home.
      After 45 years I think I deserve it and so does every other Brighton fan.
