Soccer – The English Premier League Season 2006/7

Report by Lou Deavin

The 2006/2007 season completed with Manchester United attaining the title honors. Chelsea, possibly surprisingly provided the volume of income they have put in on players finished 2nd, the other Champions League spots were taken by Liverpool and Arsenal. The UEFA cup positions had been taken By Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Bolton Wanderers. The Carling Cup and FA Cup have been each won by Chelsea

At the bottom of the table Sheffield United went down together with Watford and Charlton. Every person had anticipated the Premiership would show to tough for Watford however the demise of Charlton Athletic was a shock to numerous in the football globe but the genuine speaking level was the controversial relegation of Sheffield United with a significant range of football enthusiasts from every English League Club believing that it should have been West Ham United who misplaced their Premier League position.

West Ham United obtained a document very good for irregularities with regard to the signing of the 2 Argentinian players Tevez and Mascherano. The English Premier League determined that fining the club was a ideal punishment nevertheless numerous newspaper reviews implied that the determination was made because of to West Hams precarious league position and that had they been safely mid table a factors deduction penalty would have been produced. The general consensus of viewpoint is that had it been any of the other sides at the foot of the table a stage deduction would have been created regardless. This not remarkably angered enthusiasts in specific those 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 thoughts that the cash a club gets just by getting in the English Premier League pays the fine ten fold it seemed unfair and the make a difference has now been placed with solicitors and is becoming investigated by FIFA. Possibly this move will modify points and Sheffield United will retain their Premier League Status, we will have to wait and see.

As usual there have been a number of managerial changes all through the period commencing with Ian Dowie sacked by Charlton Athletic for poor results Charlton then went on to appoint their assistant manager Les Reid, Like Dowie 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 few weeks previously. Alan Curbishley was installed at West Ham and even with his critics managed to win sufficient games to avoid the drop unless of program the Premier League determine to alter the clubs great to a factors deduction. With only a handful of games left to be played Fulham also parted company with their manager Chris Coleman A prolonged winless spell leaving the club flirting with relegation spelled the conclude for Coleman. Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez was introduced in to help save the club, their English Premier League status was confirmed with victory over a weakened Liverpool aspect.

The greatest shock in managerial changes was Sam Alladyce leaving Bolton Wanderers with only two games left to play and in a European qualification spot. He was speedily replaced with his assistant managerSammy Lee and The Wanderers went on to qualify for the UEFA cup even however they lost and drew the final two games. Alladyce was intended to be taking a break even so this break lasted less than 3 weeks as at the seasons conclude Newcastle United sacked their supervisor Glen Roeder and Alladyce took more than in the Newcastle hot seat. Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce also paid for poor final results with the reduction of his career.Two managers also quit at the season stop, Neil Warnock from Sheffield United and Paul Jewel from Wigan Athletic. Perhaps the epic battle to keep in the Premier League in the previous game of the season in between these clubs and which noticed Wigan avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth was the choosing aspect.

Football fans will now have to wait until finally August for the new English Premier League time to get started but I doubt It will be as eventful as this time but who is aware as football is ” a amusing outdated game”
