Is this the worst Premier League season ever?

Postby Hams » Mon Dec 17, 2012 2:57 pm

Is this the worst Premier League season since the competition began back in 1992?

The reason I ask is because there is a real lack of quality about compared with previous seasons.

We have 2 Manchester clubs at the top of the table at the moment that have been so unconvincing.

Man Utd wouldn't be 1st if it wasn't for RVP's goals and other than Tevez no Man City players have impressed me.

Chelsea are so bad at the moment that they have sacked RDM and hired Rafael Benitez to steady the ship!

As for Arsenal they have become a joke and can't be taken seriously any longer after losing on penalties to Bradford.

Things are so average right now that we have teams like Everton,WBA and Norwich City challenging for a top 4 place!

Any comments?

Disagree completely.

The League has been full of quality this season.

The fact that the smaller clubs are challenging for top four places just goes to show how much depth the Premier League has. You can look at the Spanish league and you'll see Barca and Madrid win pretty much everything, the teams around them are to weak to compete. Where as in the Premier League no match is a certain win.

And I think you contradict yourself by saying there is a lack of quality in the league then go on to say RVP is the reason Manchester United are top, suggesting that his quality is what is keeping them above the competition.

:shock:

agree, hams. it's because the league has become corrupted with money since becoming popular and after winning almost everything in europe at the time. as the result players lost motivation while new generation looking up to them understood that you actually can play arses on the field and yet keep on getting the same astronomical salaries like those of their predecessors..

so, the bottom line is, the avarege footballers of the time being are getting paid for the merit and achivements of their predecessors which is totally wrong.

Yes it probably is the worse I've ever seen.

Anybody who is saying the quality of top sides hasn't changed & that the lower teams are just getting stronger is kidding themselves.

Remember seasons when the league was so strong a star studded West Ham side got relegated & another season Boro were relegated when they had the likes of Ravanelli & Juninho in there squad scoring goals for fun.

It really is just dire stuff at the moment. The lower sides are slowly getting worse & strong sides are rapidly getting worse.

I'm still pro for the Premier League and think ours is the best in the world but that this season has been the worst I have ever seen.

well... as far as i'm concerned it's the best too if to consider all the criteria involved. but let me put it this way. if you take away all this beautiful and colorful wrapper in the form of entourage around the games, you will get just commonplace football which wont be starkly different from that which is shown in other leagues.

let's not go far for an example and take the recent wba v west ham game. and what will we see?? but for the football-type stadium and full-house, it wouldnt differ by any means from a game, say, terek grozny v amkar perm :lol:

the bottom line is, the epl is very presentable which makes it so popular, but if the things keep deteriorating it's not over the hills when it's not second to none anymore.
