    English Premier League Winners 2008-2009

    Aside from the usual suspects of Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea & Liverpool only one team have been given a snowball's chance in hell of winning, that being Spurs.

    If you dont follow English football but still want to join in, only four teams have ever won the league. Man Utd have won it more than the rest combined with an unbeatable 10 wins in 16 attempts. Arsenal (3), Chelsea (2) & Blackburn Rovers (1) make up the other former champions.

    Look at the huge jump between Spurs & the rest. 66/1 to 200/1. Spurs wont win, but they are the only other team that has been given a chance of breaking the top four. The odd's pretty much everywhere show the same thrend. Exclude Spurs & the top four is already decided except for what order.

    It's a two horse race before the season's even started imo (United and Chelsea obv). You can quote me on that come the end of the season if you like Daren.

    And he scores goals...!

    We finished four points off the top & could still win if results went our way in the last two games. & i know the two games that cost us the title. A loss to Middlesborough despite us dominating them for the entire match & the draw at Birmingham when Eduardo brok his leg. They are the two games that took us out of the final weeks.

    Random question. Do you guys ever get bored of seeing the same teams win year after year?

    Do you think their should be a salary cap on the Premier League?

    I'm asking because.. in every sport in the U.S. there's either a salary cap or a luxury tax (when payroll exceeds a certain number) and it's made for more competitive seasons because instead of it being all about the money, decision making (trades, signings, drafts, etc..) has taken a bigger role.

    I'm not trying to start something, this is a legitimate question.

    A downside to having a salary cap is that sometimes a team that ends up winning the championship doesn't have as much talent as a previous team would.. meaning the overall gameplay has suffered.. However, a team like say the Patriots in the NFL.. have great teams because their coaching staff is the elite and veteran players who have yet to win a championship are willing to take less money to go there..

    In baseball, the Yankees and Red Sox among a couple other teams always do well because even though there is a luxury tax, they don't give a shit and keep spending as much as they wish regardless..
