Best Premier League Season Ever
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.
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.
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.
