Best Premier League Season Ever

Updated on January 5, 2013

The Amazing Season

As I write this on the 28th of April 2012, I can safely say that the 2011-12 Premier League season has been the best I've ever seen.

Right from August up until now it's been drama after drama, twist after twist, goal after goal. With either 2 or 3 games remaining depending on the team we still have no idea on who will win the league, get the top four spot or be relegated. As it stands there is everything to play for, with only Wolves certain of their relegation fate.



The unbelievable scoreline.

Crazy Games

It has been a season when it seems as though the top 6 or so teams have decided they don't need to defend in the big games against their rivals anymore!

First we had Man United (1st) destroying Arsenal (3rd) 8-2 back in August, then came games like Man City (2nd) beating United 6-1 at Old Trafford, Arsenal coming from 2 goals down to win 5-2 against Tottenham (5th), and Chelsea (6th) losing 5-3 to Arsenal.



Newcastle's deadly duo.

Great Signings

This season has season some inspired signings by Premier League Managers. 2 of them have come from Newcastle's Alan Pardew in Dembe Ba and Papiss Cisse, who have both been on incredible goalscoring runs. Another is Nikica Jelavic for Everton who has done very well in his first few games.

Of course along with the great bargains there comes some awful signings, most of them made by Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool; the obvious one is Andy Carroll, whose goal record had been pitiful in his first full season for his new club. Others for Liverpool include Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, and even Stewart Downing to a certain extent.

The other obvious one is Fernando Torres at Chelsea. A very good player at Liverpool and looked like a decent signing if a little overpriced at £50m, but he has flopped massively at Chelsea and his goalscoring record is almost as bad as Carroll's although to be fair to them both they have scored important goals recently, Torres against Barcelona and Carroll against Everton.

Has This Season Been The Best Ever?

      It has been an exciting season to be sure... I'm an Arsenal fan for sure, so this season has been a bit of a roller coaster for me....lol... Glad to see Newcastle doing well though and I dislike City so I don't want them to win

      Unfortunately I was 1 year old in 1995! So to be honest I'm not in a great position to talk about the best season ever but the best in my memory. Yeah I am a Man Utd fan but I know what you mean, I can see why other teams' fans enjoyed that.

      I wouldn't quite say that it was the best season ever. For me, 1994/95 will always be the best season, seeing Blackburn Rovers lift the title seems astonishing considering where they are today. That title race was so interesting, particularly the final day, when Blackburn lost to Liverpool, but still won the title after United failed to beat West Ham.

      This season has been much more interesting than recent seasons, purely because some of the big boys have suffered humiliations. I really enjoyed seeing Man Utd getting thrashed 6-1 at home (apologies if you're a Man U fan) also, providing if QPR can stay up, all three promoted clubs will have survived their first season, a great achievement.
