The last two premier league seasons have been fascinating (this one and last years). Last year was all about Manchester City starting amazingly and Manchester United upping their game to one-up them for a month or so. Eventually it lead into a battle of the Manchester Clubs throughout the whole season with arguably the most entertaining finish a BPL season has ever seen. In that season, those two dominant Manchester Clubs were both knocked out in the group stages of the Champions League AND knocked out of the jobber league known as the Europa League. This season, both Manchester United and Manchester City have started relatively poorly. Sure they're getting results and are at the higher-end of the table and it's very likely it will be a two-horse race, but it's still quite fascinating. Why? Because there is NO dominant club. Chelsea are on top but perform pretty shitty in every game and have been quite lucky throughout the season. Arsenal had a pretty good start but their "improved defence" is now back to what it was, crappy. Liverpool are deep in the bottom half of the table and Everton have seemingly taken Newcastle's place as the overachieving club that is now linked with "the top four" How do you see it planning it? Are the top teams getting worse or is it the BPL getting harder and harder? It used to be hard to score against the top teams but both United, City, Arsenal and Chelsea all concede relatively easy now. My theory? Football is evolving in the BPL. The top sides are now forced to change their original style of play which was built on power into the creative short-passing beautiful game so they can actually challenge Europe. However, none of them have perfected it at all as the more powerful "root one" teams like Stoke etc. are now taking points off the big boys. Thought this would be a cool subject to discuss.
