Battle For Supremacy — English Premier League 2008-09 Survey

The battle for ultimate supremacy begins on May 16th. But there are a few questions raised on the winners of yesterday. With last year’s title hunt lasting till the last match played, this year’s title promises nail-biters even before the season starts. Now, let us see what we can expect from this season of Barclays Premier Little league:

The Winners: Manchester U . s .

Chasing their third straight EPL title, ManU has been around news all this summer (thanks to the transfer tale regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s proceed to Real Madrid. ) And with what is this great that Ronaldo is staying for atleast another season, the fans and Mister Alex Ferguson can expect that their double title treat can continue this year also.

ManU’s approaching has to flabergasted this year if they have to beat Chelsea and Liverpool. They are in desperate need of a striker that will round-up the formation (Ronaldo-Roonay-Tevez. ) Maybe Tootenham striker Dimitar Berbatov is the right choice that ManU will opt for before the transfer session ends. And this season may also experience the genius of Wayne Rooney taking the middle stage this time. ผลบอลเมื่อคืน บ้านผลบอล

Equipotential Competitors: Chelsea

Missing both Winners Little league and English Premier Little league to ManU with slight differences, Chelsea has underwent a massive change come july 1st to be the perfect team this year. Avram Grant’s failure to bring honor to Stamford Bridge made his way to avoid of Chelsea. And then came the Portuguese flavor.

They signed “Big Phil” Luis Felipe Scolari as their new manager. Chelsea also bought Barcelone playmaker Deco and Jose Bosingwa from FC Porto. Rumours had it that Ronaldinho, Eto’o were to join the Blue team. But they had to settle with Didier Drogba’s extended contract and now they are uncertain if Frank Lampard is committed with them for long-term. Yet are equally matched favorites for this season with a strong midfield presence of Michael Ballack.

Battle for third: System

System saw a big change in the team formation as Jens Lehmann, Mathieu Flamini, Alesander Hleb and Gilberto Silva left the club. Their replacement Hleb is French international Samir Nasri. Welsh teenage Aaron Ramsey’s sign is a big step for manager Arsene Wenger.

Midfield is still a challenge for the manager. Cesc Fabregas needs a good companion in the message for the team to be a consistent and good performing team. Emmanuel Adebayor remains the key player for the team. This year they have to play very difficult to secure their third spot. Honestly, any title win is still a kilometer away, but with miracles happening all around, they need a lot of luck.

Waiting for History: Liverpool

It is always hard to write them at the end of any list. Because they were once the king of kings. Liverpool is still looking to end their 16 year really miss the title. The difference this year could be Robbie Keane, their new 24 million pound striker from Tottenham Hotspur. This makes their forward (along with Fernando Torres) a fatal one. But the team in general needs to play their 200 percent if they can expect of any title this year.

Whoever our money on: ManU are still the best in the game. But sports is not about one team and which make it a interesting sport to watch. So support your team (whichever) and revel in the game more than anything else.
