Now I don’t want to speak out of turn and upset any of the diehard football fans out there but I am slowly becoming a little disillusioned with the English Premier League. Don’t get me wrong, I do still believe that it is the best league in the world but this season has been very uninteresting to a certain degree.
As a neutral football fan, I don’t have a specific team that I follow in the English Premier League, so I like to see a good battle at the top. However, this season has been a two horse race and the title will almost certainly be decided when Manchester United head to Manchester City on April 30.
People could possibly argue that there is a good battle for fourth place but I don’t really believe there is. Arsenal have almost guaranteed third and fourth is between Chelsea and Tottenham. Not exactly a great battle. The you have the relegation battle. Again, nothing exciting. It’s almost a given that Wolves and Wigan will finally get the relegation that they deserve, so the battle will be between Bolton and QPR. Boring!
I honestly believe that if next season does not see the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, possibly even Spurs and Newcastle, closing the gap to Manchester United and Manchester City, then the English Pemier League could quickly become as boring as the Spanish La Liga. Arriba!!
Do you think the English Premier League is getting boring?
