Soccer – The English Premier League Season 2006/7

Post by Lou Deavin

The 2006/2007 period finished with Manchester United attaining the title honors. Chelsea, maybe remarkably provided the amount of cash they have invested on gamers completed second, 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 had been each won by Chelsea

At the bottom of the table Sheffield United went down collectively with Watford and Charlton. Every person had anticipated the Premiership would show to hard for Watford nevertheless the demise of Charlton Athletic was a shock to several in the football earth but the genuine talking position was the controversial relegation of Sheffield United with a considerable range of football enthusiasts from every English League Club believing that it need to have been West Ham United who misplaced their Premier League status.

West Ham United received a document fine for irregularities with regard to the signing of the two Argentinian players Tevez and Mascherano. The English Premier League made a decision that fining the club was a suitable punishment nevertheless different newspaper reports implied that the decision was made because of to West Hams precarious league placement and that had they been safely mid table a factors deduction penalty would have been manufactured. The standard consensus of viewpoint is that had it been any of the other sides at the foot of the table a position deduction would have been produced irrespective. This not astonishingly angered followers in specific these who supported other relegation threatened sides. As factors turned out the English Premier Leagues choice permitted West Ham United to escape relegation and bearing in brain that the money a club receives just by becoming in the English Premier League pays the good ten fold it seemed unfair and the matter has now been placed with solicitors and is getting investigated by FIFA. It’s possible this move will modify factors and Sheffield United will retain their Premier League Status, we will have to wait and see.

As normal there have been a number of managerial alterations through the period starting with Ian Dowie sacked by Charlton Athletic for inadequate benefits Charlton then went on to appoint their assistant manager Les Reid, Like Dowie just before him his reign was quick 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 in spite of his critics managed to win plenty of video games to avoid the drop except if of program the Premier League choose to alter the clubs good to a points deduction. With only a couple of games left to be played Fulham also parted company with their supervisor Chris Coleman A lengthy winless spell leaving the club flirting with relegation spelled the conclude for Coleman. Northern Ireland supervisor Lawrie Sanchez was introduced in to conserve the club, their English Premier League position was confirmed with victory above a weakened Liverpool facet.

The most significant shock in managerial changes was Sam Alladyce leaving Bolton Wanderers with only two video games left to play and in a European qualification spot. He was quickly replaced with his assistant managerSammy Lee and The Wanderers went on to qualify for the UEFA cup even although they misplaced and drew the very last two games. Alladyce was meant to be taking a break nonetheless this break lasted less than three weeks as at the seasons finish Newcastle United sacked their manager Glen Roeder and Alladyce took about in the Newcastle hot seat. Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce also paid for bad final results with the loss of his job.Two managers also give up at the season end, Neil Warnock from Sheffield United and Paul Jewel from Wigan Athletic. Perhaps the epic battle to stay in the Premier League in the final game of the season among these clubs and which noticed Wigan steer clear of relegation by the skin of their teeth was the choosing factor.

Football enthusiasts will now have to wait around until August for the new English Premier League season to get started but I doubt It will be as eventful as this season but who is aware as football is ” a humorous previous game”
