The 2006/2007 time completed with Manchester United attaining the title honors. Chelsea, possibly remarkably presented the volume of cash they have spent on gamers finished second, the other Champions League spots have been taken by Liverpool and Arsenal. The UEFA cup positions were taken By Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Bolton Wanderers. The Carling Cup and FA Cup had been both won by Chelsea

At the bottom of the table Sheffield United went down together with Watford and Charlton. Everybody had anticipated the Premiership would show to difficult for Watford nonetheless the demise of Charlton Athletic was a shock to several in the football globe but the real chatting stage was the controversial relegation of Sheffield United with a substantial amount of football fans from each English League Club believing that it ought to have been West Ham United who misplaced their Premier League position.

West Ham United obtained a report very good for irregularities with regard to the signing of the two Argentinian gamers Tevez and Mascherano. The English Premier League decided that fining the club was a appropriate punishment however a variety of newspaper reports implied that the selection was produced because of to West Hams precarious league position and that had they been securely mid table a points deduction penalty would have been manufactured. The common consensus of opinion is that had it been any of the other sides at the foot of the table a position deduction would have been made irrespective. This not astonishingly angered fans in specific individuals who supported other relegation threatened sides. As points turned out the English Premier Leagues determination authorized West Ham United to escape relegation and bearing in mind that the money a club gets just by becoming in the English Premier League pays the very good 10 fold it seemed unfair and the make a difference has now been positioned with solicitors and is currently being investigated by FIFA. Possibly this move will transform points and Sheffield United will retain their Premier League Status, we will have to wait around and see.

As typical there have been many managerial changes throughout the season commencing with Ian Dowie sacked by Charlton Athletic for poor benefits Charlton then went on to appoint their assistant supervisor Les Reid, Like Dowie just before him his reign was brief lived and he was sacked in December and replaced with Alan Pardew who had been sacked by West Ham a handful of weeks earlier. Alan Curbishley was installed at West Ham and in spite of his critics managed to win enough video games to steer clear of the drop unless of course of program the Premier League determine to alter the clubs great to a points deduction. With only a couple of games left to be played Fulham also parted business with their supervisor Chris Coleman A extended winless spell leaving the club flirting with relegation spelled the end for Coleman. Northern Ireland supervisor Lawrie Sanchez was brought in to conserve the club, their English Premier League standing was confirmed with victory around a weakened Liverpool facet.

The greatest shock in managerial alterations was Sam Alladyce leaving Bolton Wanderers with only two games left to play and in a European qualification spot. He was quickly replaced with his assistant managerSammy Lee and The Wanderers went on to qualify for the UEFA cup even although they misplaced and drew the final 2 video games. Alladyce was supposed to be taking a break nevertheless this break lasted much less than 3 weeks as at the seasons end Newcastle United sacked their supervisor Glen Roeder and Alladyce took around in the Newcastle scorching seat. Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce also compensated for poor final results with the reduction of his job.Two managers also give up at the time end, Neil Warnock from Sheffield United and Paul Jewel from Wigan Athletic. Maybe the epic battle to stay in the Premier League in the final game of the period amongst these clubs and which saw Wigan stay away from relegation by the skin of their teeth was the determining aspect.

Football followers will now have to wait until finally August for the new English Premier League time to commence but I doubt It will be as eventful as this period but who is aware of as football is ” a funny outdated game”
