Football drastically changed from 05/06 to the 06/07 season
That's also why the 2006 World Cup was so good. So many legends playing together at the same time, the old legends and the new ones. Today it's hard to imagine that the likes of Beckham, Ronaldo, Figo, Zidane, Raul, Van Nistelrooy, Ronaldinho and Henry played at the same tournament with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Van Persie and Zlatan.Yeah that was the out with old in with new transition.
Real Mallorca hasn’t existed since Eto’o, Finidi George and Carlos Roa played at the club.Malaga, Mallorca and Granada are either challenging for and playing in European competitions in La Liga, or in the bottom half of the Segunda, no inbetween.
Started off well but downhill after that.There is a rule that only one team with an orange home kit can be in the PL at a time so Wolves and Hull have been time sharing since the mid 2000s.
All the teams with red and white stripes whose name starts with S have also been time sharing since the 1990s and all play dull football. The one exception is Southampton in the odd season where they mix things up and switch out the stripes for a red shirt with a sash or pinstripes.
Bolton Wanderers were liquidated in 2010 and Burnley is their phoenix club.
After winning the FA Cup, Wigan did a Wimbledon and moved the franchise to Brighton.
Two red and white stripe S teams is the allotted number in a single PL season. No more, no less.Started off well but downhill after that.
For instance Southampton and Sheffield United are both in league and have been for a season and a half if I'm not mistaken.
We all think City will crumble when their owners go, or Liverpool will when Klopp goes, but the truth is that Wolves are the team who would crumble the most at a single individual leaving their payroll - and that's that agent!Wolves have given up buying any non-Portuguese players.
If by star, you mean big name, this is just true in modern MLS, not a weird feeling. Teams that go for massive past-it names tend to be ones with rich but stupid ownership. Most of the dominant MLS teams in recent times use their Designated Player spots on young, South American talent.MLS cup winners are always the teams with no star player
