English Premier League Season 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

I know it's a while away, but thought some of the happenings are worthy of discussion. Lamps has announced retirement, Chelsea have already strengthened with Diego Costa. Man Utd are looking to recruit some of the big German players. Liverpool look like they'll hold onto Suarez for the time being, but a good world cup and that'll soon change. Early predictions are that it'll be a Chelsea vs Man City tussle again. Man Utd if they strengthen with Van Gaal will be third and Arsenal as usual will be fighting for 4th alongside perhaps Liverpool this year. Of course, being this excited for the tournament, I have made a couple of promos for the new season. -Y5VkwX2vvc O6egCsfQTMA

Chelsea getting Fabregas is similar to them getting Willian last year. They don't actually need him, they already have a bundle of players in that position. They need a quality RB, CD and DM, the rest is good enough. That said, Fabregas won't make them any worse, if he plays anything like his early days in an Arsenal shirt, he will dictate games. Chelsea will need to get another good striker, if they do get someone good enough to step in for Costa, they will be the favourites for the new season.

Costa is almost a done deal. WHAT CESC BRINGS TO CHELSEA Can you recreate football magic that’s five years old? That’s certainly a part of the equation Chelsea were trying to solve in bringing Cesc Fabregas back to the Premier League. With Lampard retiring, and van Ginkel young, untested, and coming off ACL surgery, there was clearly a need for an experienced player in midfield for the Blues. Cesc Febregas certainly ticks those boxes, but despite the giddy-ness at this transfer making Arsenal fans miserable from its mere existence, I think there’s some confusion about what Fabregas brings to the team and how big an improvement it will be versus last season. Ignore the grousing from Barcelona fans. Cesc Fabregas at Barcelona was good, even though he was frequently played out of position, or as part of a system that never remotely played to his strengths. The fact that he let them play him out of position constantly, and basically buried his ego for what Guardiola and company perceived as the greater good says a lot to me about Fabregas’s personality. Pair him with a manager he trusts, and he will sacrifice for the team. That’s a damned admirable trait in the modern football world.

cool...still which is your favorite and bit of history always helps :D
Mine is Liverpool. I started watching long back in early 2000s. Michael Owen was my favorite player. I liked how this young small guy makes big defenders look helpless. Owen left Liverpool after 2-3 years but I continued supporting Liverpool as I started liking other players like Gerrard, Carragher in that time. Its the most successful English club with a great history. they haven't won the league title since 1991, whenever they are close to winning it some of the games go bad and they lose on it. Other top clubs Man Utd : second most successful English club. They have huge following in India and other Asian countries. They started doing well under Alex Ferguson since 1991 and have won EPL title 12-13 times under him. Most of the people in India started watching EPL in this time so naturally most of them support Man Utd. Chelsea : They didn't really have a great team till 2004 when Russian owner bought the club and poured money into it. They bought good players and hired a very good coach Jose Mourinho and won the title under him. Arsenal : Young players, fascinating playing style, don't spend huge money but always finish in top 3-4 as they have good youth talent scouting system. Then there are Manchester City and Tottenham hotspur. City was bought by an Oil giant Saudi in 2008 who has spent large sums of money to buy talented players. Are doing really well since last 3 years and are definitely the best team now in the League. Before 2008 they were an average team. Tottenham had some very good seasons in the last 3-4 years but other than that have been average despite spending decent amount of money in that period. On India channels they show only top 5-6 team's games only. So you can follow only one of these teams. :--D

Internationals are not really comparable. You will find EPL a lot more interesting once you get into it. International players play with each other once or twice in 2 months while they practice almost everyday in their clubs and that makes their co-ordination way better. Loosely their playing styles are Man utd: Before last season under David Moyes who ruined them, Utd played under Alex Ferguson and played fearless attacking football. Never caring much for the defense and doing an all out attack. Now they have hired the current Netherland team coach. Arsenal : Usually try to keep the possession for long like Spain and have good attacking midfielders+ attackers but lack a good defense. Usually on their off days they end up making some defensive mistakes and drop points. Chelsea : They would be the most boring side in top 4 imo, their whole game is built on solid defenders and defending midfielders. Don't really score many but once they get one goal lead they are really tough to beat. Also have the best goalkeeper in the league. Liverpool : They always had 2-3 very very talented and rest mediocre players. In the last season things changed under new manager Brendon Rodgers. He has changed them into a fluid attacking unit. Their defense was still very weak though. Man City : Due to good money spent, they have very good individual player at every position. But they lack focus and make mistakes. Despite having some good attackers they don't gel really well and hence are a beatable side. From what I see in their games, they play really against other top teams as they feel challenged but drop points against smaller clubs as they lose focus against them. Some big rivalries are usually very exciting. Manchester City and Manchester United belong to the same city, so they are rivals. Usually Man utd would beat city before 2008 easily but after that things have changed with City improving. Man United vs Liverpool as the clash of two of the most successful clubs. Liverpool vs Everton, Arsenal vs Totthenham as the other city derbies.

didn't they just sell of their ace ? suarez scored tons of goals for them :hmmm:
Yeah, he wanted to go last season as well but we managed to keep on a lead but 70-80 million is a reasonable amount reinvest in the squad to improve it. 31 goals last season but also 13 assists. He scored 10 more goals then the next guy on the list who also plays for Liverpool

So far they have bought Lambert(4m ST) Can (10m Mid) Lallana (23m A.mid) Markovic (20 m Winger/forward) Origi (7m St) They still want another LB,GK,CB,ST AND maybe another winger So lb Moreno/ Ricardo Rodriguez (20m) GK Keylor Navas 7 m Cb Lovren 20 m St Bony / Remy/ Balotelli Winger Greizzman/ Reus 25 m Also linked with Yaya Toure probably not likely to get him though

Plays for Dortmund... Left winger . Ruled out of the World Cup because of injury. FIFA_WC-qualification_2014_-_Austria_vs._Germany_2012-09-11_-_Marco_Reus_01.JPG He would be dream signing. There are some good player there like lallana, Markovic and Lovren but no world class ones
