EPL: let's predict the final ranking

Champions League
15 December 2011
On football Weekly people said that is the way the English league often was before the EPL. A litle bit exagerated, but yes, it was less predictable then....

Everybody seems to love it.


Perhaps seen through rose tinted glasses a little. A look at the 23 years before the Premier began sees the following titles

Liverpool 11
Arsenal 3
Everton 3
Leeds 2
Derby 2
Aston Villa 1
Nottm Forest 1


Premier Years

Man United 13
Chelsea 4
Arsenal 3
Man City 2
Blackburn R 1



So, 7 different teams won it rather than 5, two teams were just once, whilst Derby's were both in the early 70's before Liverpool's domination began. From 81-82 to 90-91 only Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton won it, so very similar to the last 10 years of just Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea.

So now that the transfer window is shut it's a good time to predict the table. Safe to say no-one got last year's right.
Fair play to fib91 for getting the most relegated teams right (2), tho it has to be said that he predicted Leicester to finish bottom :)
