Siobhan Chamberlain column: What a week of football
WHAT a week for football that was. Manchester City winning the Premier League with seconds to spare, the who's in and who's out of the England squad announcement and, finally, King Kenny getting the sack from Liverpool.
Whatever you say about football, this week proved that it's certainly not boring and predictable.
The grandstand finish to this year's Premier League season will go down in history as one of the most enthralling ever. With so much to play for at the top and bottom of the table, that final day must have been a rollercoaster for so many fans watching their teams' fortunes fluctuate between glory and demise over 90 minutes.
I don't think you can argue that, in the end, the best team won the league. When you look back to the big games – and in particular the Manchester derbies – City really stepped it up and in the end that quality proved too much for QPR.

Elsewhere, all eyes were on Wembley this week as Roy Hodgson announced his squad for the Euros and much has been, and will be, written about who should or shouldn't have gone.
I'll stay clear of all that and just say congratulations to goalkeepers Joe Hart, Rob Green and John Ruddy on their inclusion, all of whom have had great seasons for their clubs.
Back here in Bristol it's finally the start of Bristol Sports Week, which means tomorrow I will be doing my best to prove that keepers can run, as I take on the Bristol 10k.
I'm always told at training that as a keeper I get off lightly with the running, so Sunday is my opportunity to remind some of the more vocal members of our group that we keepers can move when we need to.
Before that, we welcome bottom-placed club Doncaster to Stoke Gifford as we look to build on last week's draw with Birmingham.
Birmingham are FA Women's Cup finalists and arguably the best attacking team in the country right now, so to keep them at bay for long periods last weekend was hugely impressive. Now we must prove that we've got it going forward and look at tonight's game against Doncaster as a chance to pick up three points.
Kick off is at 6pm, so you can nip over after the Championship play-off final and still be home in time to see Chelsea in the Champions League final … what a trio of quality games that is for you!
Before I go, I just wanted to say I will be moving. Not to another club, but to Friday's paper as this is the last edition of The Post on a Saturday.
Thanks again for all your support, enjoy your weekend, good luck if you're running the 10k.
