    Viewing it like this makes you realise just how much Liverpool pulled away in the 70s and 80s, and just how good Sir Alex was to turn that round.

    I thought Chelsea and Tottenham had more titles. Aston Villa start so well...

    Villa and Arsenal (till Villa got relegated) were the only two clubs to never have played outside the top English division.

    Edit: I'm wrong. But they had spent 105 years in the top flight.

    Kinda sad in a way that the league is dominated now by so few. It must have been nice back in those early years when loads of different teams were capable of winning titles. Won’t ever get that now with the financial might of the big clubs.

    Speaking of the past... I'll try and do one for the SM league since I've got nothing to look forward to there at the moment :(

    It's interesting how successful Northern clubs have been. Arsenal being the first club in the south, and specifically London to break that dominance up. It would be intriguing to know the reason behind the North producing such dominant clubs, even some of the best English players to be fair.

    Simply a more concentrated intense love and playing of the game in traditional industrial and mining heartlands. That's all over the shop now but many clubs have their literal origins in working mens associations.

    You're obviously not the brightest spark. The video runs to the current season.

    Nice. What was interesting was that up until around the early 50's (some 65 years after the league's formation) there was only 1 title separating 6 clubs (Villa, Sunderland, Arsenal, Liverpool, United and Everton). Shows how money changed the game.

    Now I know why all those Preston North End fans I run into in Oklahoma are so stuck up.

    Leicester won the title two years ago. 4 different clubs have won it in the past 5 years with three other clubs besides this finishing 2nd in this period.

    Leicester is an anomaly.

    The title will realistically only ever be won now by a handful of clubs. City, us, Chelsea mainly. With the other 3 ‘big 6’ clubs thereabouts. The table is a lot more predictable now, no denying that.

    The likes of Everton, Sunderland, Villa, and the like competing now is practically impossible.

    Those Liverpool and United dominant spells were incredible really, near impossible to replicate now.

    Surprised to see City do have some history though. :confused:

    Thrilling stuff, it started out a bit slowly and stodgy with too many random characters, and i thought the middle bit where Liverpool surged away seemed a bit like unrealistic storytelling, but then it really came together towards the end, what with the comeback finale of United to over take them, I could fully appreciate the satisfying story the director was trying to tell. The Epilogue was a bit pointless, but overall would recommend.

    Mini-league between Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, United and City is so unpredictable since last time United won the premier league and it is impossible to retain title, for an example, United won the league then finished 7th next season, Chelsea won league then suddenly finished 10th, Liverpool were close to winning EPL 2013-14 and lost out to City and dropped to 6th next season, Leicester City who won the league and all of sudden they were in relegation battle until Liverpool games then suddenly they turned corner and look like world beater after beating Liverpool 3-1, they went on 6 winning streaks and finished 12th eventually.

    Also, Everton could complete with the strong 6 clubs for a title or 4 spots if keeping spending 150m or so. EPL is at its strongest peak, so-called "dominant" is gone cos the likes of big six club will keep improving quality of the club and strengthen themselves. I think United have a good chance of winning next season, the only 3-4 position needed a urgdade, away from being favourites for the title, Chelsea and Liverpool literally will improve too, City could find it difficult to retain titles next season especially when their rival strengthened themselves but even though City will be favourites for titles.


    Sunderland or Villa could complete if they have same financial powers and pull off big name signing. Everton is already there in the same tier as Arsenal and Spurs for financial powers, Newcastle United could be there soon on the way if bought by a billionaire and could do a City/Chelsea thing.

    You were supposed to dominate the league since last time United won the league but it is too late for now, "dominant" is gone.:( I've missed the day when United was so dominant.
