As another season in the world's richest league draws to a close, we have a look at a few of the images that contributed to another awe-inspiring 10 months of blood, sweat and tears in England.
The opening day sees Ian Holloway's Premier League new boys Blackpool shred Wigan Athletic 4-0 at the DW Stadium. Little do they know it, but they will continue to fight for their survival when May comes into view.
Newcastle join Blackpool in making an impressive early impact with a 6-0 thumping of Aston Villa. Andy Carroll inspires the rout with a hat-trick. It is the type of form that will secure him an astonishing £35 million move to Liverpool in January.
Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour pops in at Eastland to see what all the fuss is about. He picks a good night to see where is petrodollars have gone as City destroy an insipid Liverpool side 3-0 in August. They will progress to have a memorable season in winning the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League. He has spent up to £350 million so far on purchasing new faces.
Everton score twice in injury time to earn a 3-3 draw with Manchester United in September. It proves to be a minor blip in United's march to the main gong.
Gerard Houllier is installed as manager of Aston Villa in October after Martin O'Neill parts company with the Birmingham club. Houllier will be hospitalised later in the season with a heart scare, but they do just enough to avoid the relegation issues.
The month of October is dominated by Wayne Rooney, who indicates he is ready to leave Manchester United before apparently changing his mind to extend his contract. The decision proves pivotal to his club's success.
Blackburn Rovers are taken over by the Rao family in November. They don't hang around in making an impression upon Ewood Park as Sam Allardyce is sacked a month later and replaced by Steve Kean, whose side will scramble until the final day to stay afloat in the league. They do just that with a 3-2 win at Wolves.
Carlos Tevez submits a transfer request to Manchester City. He plays in a 2-1 loss to Everton at home five days before Christmas during the big freeze. Rumours continue to surround the Argentine player throughout the season. He has to indicate whether or not he will be back next term.
Chelsea complete the signing of Spain striker Fernando Torres from Liverpool for £50 million. Torres struggles to make an impact in scoring only one goal in 17 appearances for the club as Chelsea relinquish the title to United and lose in the Champions League to United. His manager Carlo Ancelotti parts company with the club on the final day of the season.
Kenny Dalglish returned to Liverpool as manager to replace the sacked Roy Hodgson in January. He is appointed permanent manager by Liverpool's new owners after overseeing an upturn in their fortunes. Hodgson replaces Roberto Di Matteo at West Brom and ensures they do not get sucked into the relegation scrap.
Wayne Rooney scores what most pundits describe as the 'goal of the season' with this stunning overhead kick winner in a 2-1 victory over Manchester City. It helps United on their way to the title.
Former Rangers and Scotland manager Alex McLeish leads Birmingham to a 2-1 win over Arsenal in the Carling Cup final in February, but they are drawn into a relegation fight that goes to the last day of the season.
Cheik Titote scores with only three minutes of normal time remaining to earn Newcastle a 4-4 draw in February. It is one of the games of this or any other seasons as the home side recovers from trailing 4-0. It sums up Arsenal's travails as their title challenge crumbles in the run-in.
West Ham United's relegation is confirmed on the penultimate weekend of the season as they blow a 2-0 lead at Wigan to lose 3-2 and their place in the Premier League. Wigan stay up with a 1-0 win at Stoke a week later.
Stoke secure their Premier League status with some ease. They lose the FA Cup final 1-0 to Manchester City, but enjoy a 5-0 win over Premier League rivals Bolton in getting there.
Sir Alex Ferguson is all smiles after his Manchester United side complete another wonderful season by drawing with Blackburn 1-1 a week after beating Chelsea 2-1 to put the final touches to a record 19th Premier League title. The Champions League final against Barcelona is yet come, but they are now one title English title ahead of Liverpool.
Ian Holloway's Blackpool fight the good fight until the closing moments of the campaign. A dramatic 4-3 win over Bolton keeps them afloat until the final day when they visit Manchester United, a week before the Premier League champions take on Barcelona in the Champions League final..
There is only heartache a week later. Despite leading United 2-1 at Old Trafford, Blackpool fall to a 4-2 defeat that seals their fate. They join West Ham United and Birmingham in the Championship next season.
Wolves do enough to avoid the drop on the final day despite a 3-2 loss to Blackburn. Their fans feel like champions.
Birmingham do not make it and it is all too much for this young fan.
At the end of the season, there are winners and there are losers. United are worthy champions - until next time.
