A remarkable day at the bottom

Two of five clubs entered today threatened with relegation from the PREMIER LEAGUE.
We tuned in live on television to WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS hosting BLACKBURN -- a match of twists and turns that matched the look of the standings as this extraordinary day.
Blackburn looked like they were in another league in the first half, taking a 3-0 lead that seemed to condemn Wolves to the dreaded drop.
Instead, Roman Pavlyuchenko scored twice as TOTTENHAM beat BIRMINGHAM, 2-1, and Wolves clawed back to score a pair of second-half goal, losing 3-2 but having the crucial tallies that relegated the League Cup-winning Blues on goal difference.
Elsewhere, the champions MANCHESTER UNITED beat BLACKPOOL, 4-2, to send the Tangerines down to the Championship as well.
Hugo Rodallega scored a late goal to lift visiting WIGAN past STOKE, 1-0, and out of the relegation zone.
It was a remarkable final day of the season, and now, mostly, I feel sad it has come to an end.
