    I'm omitting the decades prior because this is about the landscape since Fergie's tyranny ended and how things looked then and now

    1990 - 2000: Manchester United 6
    2000 - 2010: Manchester United 5
    2010 - 2020: ?

    As it stands:

    2010 - 2016/17

    Chelsea 3
    Manchester United 2
    Manchester City 2

    After this season, there are two more titles to play for to wrap up the decade.

    How do you think things will play out?

    If we've not been Trumped.. a bump in 2020 to see who's call was right will be in order.

    Leicester might also have a league title.

    You will get a lot of City to win all remaining 3 titles and Pep to become even more beautiful here.

    I think all top 3 teams will win one each. If someone misses out, it will be Chelsea.

    They're not going to win another one, so omitted from the 'count'.

    :lol:

    That's just how good Pep is ;)

    I counted wrong, I was hungry. :(
    We'll win 1 each.

    I can see us winning the league next season if we didn't win the league this season. We'd be a lot stronger than Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal next season cos we have 3/4 position that is underperforming - ACM, RW and LB/RB so we will upgrade them with new signing, as soon as we completed signing for this position then we will be one that stops City from dominating league like we did with Arsenal and Chelsea.

    Yes we seem to be going for the early option of counting (1989/90 - 1998/99 not 90/91 - 99/00) in this battle so there are two to play for.

    Unfortunately as much as Pep's arse has been getting some fairly undignified kissing from the caf of late I'm puckering up myself and saying City will win the next two, making it:

    Manchester City 4
    Chelsea 3
    Manchester United 2
    Leicester 1 (let them on ffs :lol:)

    Thought a cycle would normally start with the 00/01 season hence it’s 2 for Chelsea and 3 more to go.

    17/18
    18/19
    19/20

    3 titles.

    Edit: I read that in the voice of Count von Count. Ah ah ah.

    That leaves the last of the ten titles in the sample being awarded outside the given decade. It's not perfect either way but I think the OP's way is best.

    EDIT:
    Wouldn't this method of counting leave us with six titles in the first decade of the PL (92/93 , 93/94 , 95/96 , 96/97 , 98/99 , 99/00)?

    At this point I wouldn't like to guess, when City win this seasons title will Pep be offered a contract extension? You would imagine so, will he sign it and prolong his stay beyond the initial 3 years? Same for Jose, will he sign a new contract before next season? Certainly in our case we could go backwards with our next managerial appointment. Who will Chelsea go for once Conte leaves? Is there even anyone else out there who they haven't hired at least once?

    apart from the original poster was counting from 09/10, so the decade ends 18/19

    I read that in the voice of kermit

    Switched the title count around. Can't get away with a quick count on here! :lol

    But, yeah, 19/20 should be the end of a decade, shouldn't it? That's the intention, anyway.

    Ah OK, I preferred the original way of counting as it had ten titles awarded in each decade (e.g. 1990, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99 with 2000 in the next sample) but maybe I'm being a silly count :lol:.

    In that case I'd still say City for 17/18 and 18/19, then I'll go Chelsea for 19/20. My gut says United are going to be waiting a while longer yet.
