The Premiership bores fans of English clubs who aren't in it. I notice that an usually high percentage of the latest wave of the multicultural society in NW londonium support Chelsea. It will be an interesting and novel cultural experience to welcome an influx of Man City supporters ::)

So does our stupid division. We already have a thread for this. I'd ask the Mods to merge this, but they can't. Hahaha.

Anyway, as a matter of fact I'll be watching the top of the Prem with renewed vigour to see if Manchester Citeh really can usurp one of the top four. I think it's better that we have 5 big teams than the same old four.

I won't care, because of the way they done it. Nothing to do with anything they did right. Just the fact they got bought out by a load of filthy-rich Arabs.

True, but if you want to go down that route, only Arsenal and to a lesser extent, Man Utd's success was built, Chelsea bought theirs and Liverpool fluked a win the CL, and haven't improved since.

I strongly-dislike Liverpool and Chelsea.

- Chelsea are as charmless as a new-money City-Boy 'largin' it' in a London bar.

- Liverpool have no concept of team-building, and seem to just buy and sell players almost at random - going back all the way to Souness.

HAHAHA!
Who had 6 months in the Keegan to quit sweepstakes??

If he quits he should be banned from managing a football club ever again!

Re:Premiership Thread
 
I've never really particularly liked Keegan in the past but I do actually sympathise with him a little in this case. If it's true that Wise has been responsible for all the dealings and he's not been able to get involved, I'm not surprised he's annoyed.

In his interviews you can always see the frustration in his face, I don't think he quite thought this is what he was getting himself in for. When he admitted last season that the club would never break the top four, I thought it was quite a bold thing for a manager to do. It was almost as if he was telling Mike Ashley directly that he's having a laugh if that was his goal - essentially he was the only man working for them who had a realistic outlook on the club and their future, unlike the board and a lot of the fans.

To be honest if he does end up leaving it will just make the club look like an ever bigger laughing stock, and that's nothing to do with Keegan. Surely Dennis Wise is the only man in the world who could possibley take up the job now, and even then I wonder how long before he's made the puppet.
