I've been wondering for a while now whether in the PL we have a case of the 'best of the rest' getting better, or the 'top teams' getting worse... there's the slightly earlier exits from CL (although QFs are no mean feat), but all the 'big 4' - NOT top 4 like some pundit referred to them the other day! - have lost games to surprising teams, probably most notably Man U losing to Burnley.
Are we catching up because we're improving, or is their reign ending because they're just not as good as they used to be?
I think its a bit of both nbr. I honestly believe Manure and Ar$e are not as good as they were. Manure have a few weaker links in thier regular starting line ups than they used to and Ar$e, well all I need say is Bentnar!!
Chesea, having gradually got a squad together over a couple of years, are looking like they have fairly good cover in most positions so they are looking quite strong. 'Pool are weaker than I have seen them in years.
Us, Villa, Citeh (although they will take some time much like Chelski did to settle down) and Everton are looking strong. So, some are getting stronger and others are getting weaker - its the way of the world.
