OK with the Prem about to kick

off in a little over a month`s time, will there be a new winner this season, or will it be more of the same?

Twenty-seven years of the Prem, and only six winners, and I suspect it would have been a lot less had not Chelsea and City both not won lotteries.

Man United 13
Chelsea 5
Man City 4
Arsenal 3
Blackburn 1
Leicester 1

Compared to my first 14 years of watching top flight football, there were 11 different winners in those 14 years

Wolves
Burnley
Tottenham
Ipswich
Everton
Liverpool
Man United
Man City
Leeds
Arsenal
Derby

So much more competitive, it was very hard to predict with any certainty who would be lifting the biggest prize, unlike today, where it is pretty well a given before a ball is kicked. I doubt we will ever return to those days of a relatively level playing field in August where there was all to play for.

So the question is will there be another new name on the Prem trophy next season, or will it be more of the same. Will Tottenham or Liverpool ever win the Prem? have teams like West Ham and Wolves any chance of even making top four? or are we consigned to much of the same for the next 50 years. I really don`t want our league going the same as say Spain, Germany or Scotland, one or two horse races for evermore.

A truly competitive league would make it much more exciting. I fear though that it will never ever change though, or at least not in my lifetime. Money it seems rules now.

Possibly depending how seriously city take the league this year. I think peps must be wanting the CL badly and just might sacrifice some big players in league games while preparing for CL games.
Who knows time will tell.

Trouble is every time they take out a quality player they have another to step right in. I think it would have to be a motivational problem that would hold them back.

We might just have to settle for number 7 next season

It’s a long shot given the depth of the squad, like I said who knows.

I would have liked to see us spend big again but it looks as if we are bringing young players through like Brewster. Could work out, look at the way big D has been improved under Klopp. The futures looking good. I think it’s time Pep took a holiday

No mate, I very rarely bet on cricket, one day stuff, form goes out of the window on any given match.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You stated on cricket ja that you bet they wouldn't get out of the group stage
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeh well that was metaphorically, I didn`t actually have a bet.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Should amend that to all bets I had on Spurs winning at those various stages of the CL. Each way bet on them reaching the final.

I am off to Newmarket shortly, any bets you want putting on on, as you seem rather keen on my bets.
