Is it the start of an end for epl teams in europe?
Early exit from europes premier tournament champions league has raised plenty of eyebrows are english premier league teams good enough compared to other european teams. Although not to forget chelsea are champions of 2012 in the tournament but currently no english team has reached quater final stage some can say they were unlucky as they got bad decisions but is it an start of all english premier league teams to dip in europe as the quality and class compared to spain , italy and big german teams looks way better then premier league side who should improve and bring better players to survive in highly competitivetive tournaments like champions league.
Ups and Downs of Barcelona
After loosing two elclassicos and a 2 nil defeat in the hands of A.C Milan in first leg it looked like a complete u turn in barcelona's season as they looked like they will be out of champions league at round of 16 phase after being knocked out of copa del rey in the hands of arch rivals Real Madrid, But as a top class side would do fight till the end thats what barcelona did with a 4 nil thrashing of A .C Milan in second leg and progessing through to last 8 in the champions league. They already seem to have sealed a la liga title for this year with the big lead at top of the table. Although coach Tito Vilanova is missing due to illness so the down fall was expected and with the current win hopefully the team will be back to winning ways.
Day and decision to forget
We saw in manchester united vs real madrid how a referee can spoil a big game and believe it or not we were so confident this would happen that we posted on our facebook page 6 hours before the game started. This is what we posted "Just get the feeling poor refereeing will spoil tonight's Manchester United vs Real Madrid game. What do you all think am i right?". Here is the link to the post https://www.facebook.com/EPLsite/posts/573611659318553 We knew this was gonna happen but just cant believe how authorities didn't knew about this. All the efforts united put to reach the round of 16 were spoiled by the poor decision which no one in the stadium believed or ever real madrid players themselves were shocked.
Liverpool and their title ambitions
There was a period where liverpool had most english premier league titles then any other team but now days it only looks like its history and might not repeat in near future the team has had very bad last three seasons finishing in mid table but they have never looked like threatening a title as it stands this season is gonna be no different as they have struggled to keep the pace. They do seem to have potential next season as so far Luis Suarez has been one of top scorers in the league he will have to make the difference next season if liverpool are to get anywhere near the english premier league title.
Manchester United reach almost where they belong
Manchester united seem to be back to winning ways as far as english premier league title is concern after a shocking last day defeat in the hand of rivals manchester city last season with last few games remaining they seem to have good enough lead to see them through to title this season unless something dramatic happens like it happened last year but this time it looks like very unlikely as they have most of the things under control.

Arsenal who will be without their star striker Robin van Persie who scored 30 goals for them last season and also won the golden boot award for the league's leading goal scorer although arsenal have signed two strikers Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud but the question still remains will they be good enough to replace robin van persie who have scored 130 goals for the club.

The Community Shield : Chelsea vs Manchester City
The Community Shield Gets The Premiership season Underway today.
Manchester City take on FA Cup winners chelsea at Villa park (wembley is being used for the Olympic games & yes i know they built a huge stadium for it!!!)Tickets were an awful 14 k each plus 2000 "restricted view tickets" these mean you are seated behind a massive iron stanchion or girder & you cant see much without discomfort-so why is this important game being held here? Old trafford would be deemed as favouring city-any london ground favours chelsea-so why not the millenium stadium? I cant help feeling had united won the league the game would be at the Millenium ! Should be a good game with chelseas new signings on show & citys league winning outfit will be relatively unchanged as they havent signed anyone
So how much does it cost to watch a premiership game?
Manchester united have confirmed they will increase season ticket prices by 1 pound a game next season and many other clubs will be increasing also. While many clubs have reduced prices to attract more cash-strapped fans at a time of a global economic crisis, United once again feel confident
New English Premier League Season New Expectations
