Man City win the premier league

Recommended Posts

Given the choice I'd be happy for the super league to go ahead and see the back of the 'top six' or just City relegated for the FFP charges. Premier league football is all becoming a bit too unattainable and dull for me. Losing interest more every season

Don't mind City as I use to go and watch the Malcolm Allison sides with our next door neighbour. 4 in a row is a magnificent achievement and both Man Utd and Chelsea have outspeed City in the last ten years. Arsenal only £40m behind. Pep is possibly the greatest coach ever.....

We wouldn't have lost interest had we be going up.

That must be the worst bottom 3 ever to be relegated. A pathetic 66pts between. 

And if the ESL was to start next season Man Utd and Chelsea wouldn't be in it. There will almost certainly be promotion and relegation from it, which means things won't really change.

In other news water is wet, the sky is blue, cambridge will start a thread about it and the top flight really has become the Scottish Premiership and Ligue 1 combined..

Fixed it for you.

Agreed though on the impact on teams like ours. Top 6 going to join a super league would allow a reset for the rest of us.

If we'd have been promoted this season, chances are we would be as uncompetitive as the 3 relegated this year so I'm not sure promotion would've improved my interest in the prem.

Phil Foden, comes out of the academy ( he is now 23 ) 7 years ago and now has 6 Premier League winners medals and a Champions League winner, amongst many others.

Lets hope he adds a Euro’s winners medal this year.

Agree but it’s a top eight really Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Villa, Chelsea, Man Utd, Newcastle and Tottenham.

At the same time, the Premier League and many of those clubs and their investors have:

  • Successfully reduced the number of clubs in the league to 20 - and will likely push for further reductions
  • Successfully scrapped cup replays on the basis that it is too many games yet have no problem with additional places for European league format competitions etc etc.

None of those changes benefit the rest of the clubs in the football pyramid, The 'fixture congestion' they complain about can be remedied to going back to how it was - only the champions qualify and the competition is an open draw with no seedings.

 Otherwise the gap between the haves and have nots grows further, the predictability of the league and apathy amongst fan bases grows stronger. The attitude of the FA & Premier League needs to change or be made to change by a regulator with sufficient powers.

They are like the sad kid at school who sticks the cheat code in cos he can't hack it on FIFA or FM and then acts superior like he actually won or achieved something.

Yep, it always grates on me how you can finish fourth or fifth and still compete in a "Champions" League. Very few will remember who comes fourth or fifth in this summer's Euros or Olympics.

You’re forgetting you now have 9 person sub bench and you can make up to 5 subs.

All for the good of the game.....

I notice that VAR is in place for each of the EfL play off finals yet its nowhere to be seen in the regular season and semi final. Neither Crewe nor Crawley wanted it. Any competition should have the same rules for all.

Or maybe the chasm between the two leagues has just got that little bit bigger.

Yes, both can be  true- one would be the indicator of the other.

Not good, as it looks as if we’re gradually getting effectively a fixed top & 2nd tier by default. “This year’s visitors from the Championship are…”

interesting that parachute payments have been tinkered with and called into question in recent years, while  this has been happening.

Man City winning a fourth Premier League in a row. Amazing what can be achieved with £2 billion, a manager with an offshore account, a suspended 2-year ban from European competition and 115 charges of financial irregularity.May be an image of ‎1 person, playing football and ‎text that says "‎FLYBET FLY FLYBET FLY BETI B0 and League L Pren mier Premier ផខ ๔๗ מחד LUS ue‎"‎‎

A vague whiff of humiliation hangs in the air, they’ve bullied the locals by fail to take on tough guys across the bay, no big ears for them.

Exactly!! 
Premier League has been corrupted by money and self interest. The regular money grabbers (not champions) league participants and 2 or 3 other wannabe hangers on are trying to control the game and buy off the FL teams with a few crumbs off the table, which they should be‘grateful for’. 
The whole farce of a competition, ruined by money, power and greed holds no interest for me.

And yet it's at the other end that the media like to take pot shots at. I'd argue it's the top end that needs more ridicule. 

It's gotten worse year apon year apon year, and will only continue to do so, the quicker the ESL comes in the better, or have two separate things in this country, a premier League  thats closed off for the " big boys " + some other like Newcastle, Villa etc.  ( no idea how the teams will be picked but that's not my job, maybe done by number of seasons in the PL since it's inception top 20 are the teams in that league then ) no relegations. 

then have the EFL as it's own entity, no promotions if you win the new " EFL division 1 " your then just the EFL div 1 champions and get to have a go at the European conference league or something like that. 

It's the only way to keep football alive in this country because as it is, it's on its last legs, how many years will it be before someone who isn't citeh, pool, Chelsea or arsenal win the PL or either cups again? My guess is at least 5. 

Premier League, best league in the world?
