Saturday 20th May 3.00pm - Millwall v Bradford

Two of my former clubs go head to head at Wembley and two really good clubs at this level. Either of these two can hold their own if promoted to the Championship and it should be a really good game.

I've seen Millwall a few times this season and they're a well balanced team with two good forwards. Strong all round they'll be desperate to put to bed the demons of last year's play-off final loss against Barnsley.

They were dreadful that day and didn't turn up.

Bradford are another good team who have been there or thereabouts all season in League One, but I think that prior experience from Millwall last year will stand them in good stead and I'm going to take a bit of the 12/1 about the Lions to win in extra time.

Sunday 21st May, 3.00pm - Watford v Man City

Watford have done the norm by sacking their manager after a season.

Materazzi has done fine this season and it does make you wonder. He's got them to avoid relegation early and there's been a drop off since which has cost him his job. What do the owners expect?

You can't cruise any games at this level so it's no real surprise to see that drop of intensity since they reached the safety mark. But the Watford owners keep making changes and they keep getting away with it I suppose!

Man City are the best team in the league going forward for me but defensively is still a concern. I think they'll win this match but with £1bn pumped into the team they're clearly not punching their weight in footballing terms both in the Premier League or Europe.

Plenty of work to be done for Pep. They're so good in posession but it's just a case of getting the balance of the team right.

Sunday 21st May, 3.00pm - Liverpool v Middlesbrough

Liverpool have been such a strange team this season, times they've been fanastic, other times awful!

Even finishing fourth is a successful season for them though given their resources and considering the amount of points they've dropped at home to the lesser teams.

I don't see them dropping any points on Sunday though as long as everyone keeps patient if a goal doesn't come in the first half an hour.

At the end of the day Liverpool couldn't have wished for a better side than a relegated one to be facing on the last day of the season where a win would assure Champions League qualification.
