The pre-season break may serve as resting and holiday time for both players and coaches of the twenty clubs who have both worked tirelessly week-in-week-out from August to May to churn the best of football entertainment for fans, but for football fans and enthusiasts around the world, this is the most patience-testing time as a fan. This basically turns fans to scavengers of rumors and transfer news as there is no football action. The fans are impatient and bored.
Commanding an astonishing fan-base close to two billion globally and still growing, a combination of entertaining football, high grade of excellent players and world-class stadiums and facilities, the Barclays Premier League has been a major phenomenon to reckon with, both domestically and all over the globe. Many landmark events that brought both bows and boos were experienced in the 2012/2013 season but fans will not forget in several years to come the major shake-up that rocked the ship of the 2012/2013 champions, Manchester United: the iconic Sir Alex Ferguson left the dock as the captain of the Old Trafford ship. Pen-pushers and men of the press also had so much to say in their twisted and straight words about the Manchester united manager who weathered the world football storm and came out unscathed several times.
As the few months of no-football break winds up and we inch closer with just few days away to the start of another scintillating Premier League season, the fans are sure promised of so many twists and turns in the yet to start new season, this is due to recent news and events in the Premier League, it is going to be another classic title race. Many were surprised with the show put up by Manchester City in their 2012 triumph in the league and thought they have come to stay but the noisy neighbors were put back where they belong by a Manchester United team bolstered by heroic efforts of former Arsenal captain, Robin van Persie. United’s eleven-point margin of victory is doubtful though this coming season, as the trio of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all have new managers and all of them are known to be heavy spenders when it comes to signing exciting players, it’s a new era for the big three clubs and this has definitely blown the Premier League title race open, it’s up for grab.
He was the “Special One” during his first reign has the Blues boss, went on a sojourn to the Los Blancos and now he returned and transformed as “The Happy One” to his former love where he achieved so much as the Chelsea boss. With his football theatrics on and off the pitch, Jose Mourinho is going to make the league more entertaining, love him or hate him; he is one of the best coaches in the world and he offers more with his drama.
When the league starts on August 17 and the Red Devils file out of the dug-out for their first match of the season against Swansea, one man will be missing at the top of the pack for the first time in twenty-seven years and that man is Sir Alex Ferguson. Former Everton FC Manager, David Moyes, faces an immediate daunting task to deliver results and win trophies after he was announced as the new Manager of Manchester United.
However, as we exhaust the remaining few days to the start of the new season, the battle dust is already been raised as clubs face each other in a battle of supremacy which has been for several years. Which club will be crowned the Champion at the end of 2013/2014 season? Which teams will make it to the prestigious UEFA Champions League next season? And who are those that will end up been religated? This is definitely going to be a very interesting season this year and we can’t wait for it to begin.
