It will get worse when Wenger and Mourinho leave. If we are relying on British coaches we are in serious lumber.

Too many poor sides in the bottom half, middle of the league and the likes of Man Utd and Liverpool now are not as good as they used to be. Arsenal always unlikely to win the league. Chelsea a bit boring. Only leaves Man City as a team you can count on to watch and be entertained this season.

EPL starting to resemble 60s show The Prisoner. Potentially decent European players given double/triple wages, but forced to spend 5 years in Sunderland, Newcastle, Stoke, etc.

When Brendan rodgers is manager of a once great team and nobody gives a care its sends a statement to the rest of the premier teams that English football is finished.
back in the good old days all the x Liverpool players would not allow a non fit for purpose manager take care.
mancherster united fans use to demand success,now they settle for European football.

Lots and lots of overpaid and very average foreigners, playing in the League, is why it has gone downhill. Get back to having just British players and eventually, it would improve again.

I think that there is so much money in the English game that just getting there is the prize. A decent player can make much more in England than in Spain, Germany or Italy. Once they have a 4 year contract at an English team they coast, it's job done. That's just how I see it anyway.

they,ll be the same radio pundits who,ve been banging on for 25 yrs about wanting centre halves to take it off the keeper and pass it between themselves,theyve now all realised it only works if you have messi,ronny,pirlo,zlatav etc at the other end and we havnt in this country, so it all becomes pointless,
i dont mind managers like brenda wanting to play a certain way [not my way] but they do themselves no favours when they go from setting a blueprint for the club training 6 days  aweek to achieve it,to braying the ball up front to the big fella the second they go behind in a game

Nobody can tell me that Loveren is better than Gomez.  Dele Alli seems better than most of the dross at Spurs.  How Oxlade-Chamberlain can not hold down a regular place at Arseanal is a national scandal imo.

Managers going for the safe option and buying foreign.  The vast majority are average joes who are coasting and offer no value for money.

lets be honest about it,if stoke were playing Bournemouth and it was on live on sky,how many of you would tune in to see it if you had no betting interest on the game?.my guess is not many.

I would because most of Bournemouth's players are british and here in this game Leicester and Villa, plenty of foreigners on the pitch and its 2 British lads, that have given us 2 quality pieces of finishing.

I hope I do not offend anybody,but in this day and age I can not see the sense in the board of management at Liverpool football club persisting with the situation that is going on at the club.i can not see why the fans put up with the negative football being played,and most of all I can not understand why the x players who were so proud to wear the Liverpool shirt allow the once great club disintegrate .it has to stop,someone must grab the bull by the horns and get Brendan Rodgers out.
the surprising thing about it all is that everyone knows and agrees with what I say but still allow it to happen.
it is surely beyond belief that the powers that be stand by and allow it.

If somebody handed me a contract for 4 years, which made me a millionaire overnight, a contract they have to fulfill once signed and all I then have to do is show up and go through the motions to cover my side of the deal, I wonder how motivated i would be to perform my best?

If the club who gave me this are a mid or low table side, with little to no chance of significant silverware, where me working my arse off week in week out may make the difference of finishing 12th or 13th in the table, would I bother to put that work in?

If the club i joined has nothing to do with who i supported as a kid, my hometown or home country, has no emotional connection to me whatsoever, and a team i just joined because they offered me the most money, would i really care deeply if things turned out bad for them?

When I watch the Premiership, this is what i wonder about the vast majority of players in it. Almost all join whichever club pays them the highest salary and after a few years of that, they look like they just don't care less. They will happily desert any sinking ship if they are offered a better deal. There is no loyalty and no genuine connection to the fanbase.

There are of course exceptions to this, but not that many players.

When I watched the Man Utd v Liverpool match, that first half, i couldn't find a single player on either team who looked like it truly mattered to them. I hope i am wrong.

its a funny game,in most professions if you don't do what you are paid to do,you lose your employment,but in football it seems to me that all you have to do is turn up and you get paid.in fact a lot of guys sit on a bench week in week out and get 70 or 80 grand a week for doing it.
imagine a plumber who never fixes a leak but is paid a large amount of money for not doing what he is paid to do.
and imagine all the other plumbers high fiving him and hugging and dancing around with joy if by some chance the plumber happens to fix the leak.Laugh

The problem is that the rewards for being in the Premier League are so high due to the £5bn TV deal, that for approx 14-15 clubs every year, the summit of their ambitions is to finish 17th.  Only those half dozen clubs with the means to get into the top 4 and the further riches of the CL will really bother once safety for another year's Prem survival is achieved.

Newcastle a prime example.  So long as they are in the PL, it's the perfect shop window for Ashley's real business, ie, Sports Direct.  It's not worth the investment in the top players to get into the top 4, so as long as they don't get relegated that's good enough.  Cup competitions are sacrificed in order for this to be achieved.  For all the laughing we do at Geordies for taking it so seriously, I do feel genuinely sorry for them that their once great club has been turned into a vehicle for simply flogging chav companies like Sports Direct and Wonga.

perhaps the answer is for some clubs to merge,but I can not see the supporters agreeing.
but some teams will go out of existence if the league keeps going the way its going.
the transfer market has got out of hand altogher,and small clubs are caught in a catch 22 situation.
they either buy better players(that they cannot afford)or they stay struggling in the lower leagues.
