    Just a simple yes or no will do. No need for an explanation, I certainly won't be reading it again.

    I’d have to say NO too but certain elements sure make seem like it sometimes.

    It’s been **** for years. There’s too much money and too much Sky/BT coverage.

    There's a decent top five but the rest are ****e, it's the worst quality it has been for ages. Sky and BT can try to pull the wool over the sheep's eyes as much as they want, it's no way 'the best' league in the world.

    People like Benitez are lauded as some sort of success because they stayed up but they were just about the best of twelve genuine relegation candidates and will be relegation fodder again next year and still very much ****.

    Looking forward to seeing what the championship is like next season. Well, I will be of I can renew my season tickets. Swansea, bizarrely, sold my seats from under me while the season will still going as I didn't renew before April.
    ****in scandalous. I've half a mind to tell them to stick it up their arse, and I will if they don't find me decent seats, but my boys want to go so I will again too.

    Mad way of going about things though. They put me back on the waiting list, which I assume isn't that long, but I've not heard anything back since.

    I can't wait for the day when the rich elite **** off to a Euro League and leave the rest of us a realistic opportunity to win something, it has been too biased towards a few clubs for too long now.

    It's been a lot more biased in the modern age though...

    Not really.
    If you mean the modern age = the Premier League
    In the 26 seasons since the Premier league was formed there have been 6 different winners (Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, City, Blackburn and Leicester)
    In the 26 seasons before the Premier League was formed I think there were 7 different winners (Villa, Forest, Liverpool, Everton, Derby, City and Leeds)

    So not a great deal of difference really

    Blackburn were the possibly the richest club when they won it and Leicester was a one off freak anomaly that won't be repeated for a long time.

    I can't see the likes of Villa, Forest, Derby, Leeds and even Everton ever being in contention again without major investment from somewhere.

    Well yeah, the clubs at the top have changed yes, but my point was, the title is still being banded about between half a dozen clubs.
    That's always been the case. Sometimes clubs slip out of the top pack and another one slips in.
    Look at the 80's, Liverpool and Everton tennis'ing the title back and forth across Liverpool, with occassionally Arsenal sneaking in to grab a trophy or two.
