    Good article, thanks.

    I agree with most of it – there has been practically no title race to speak of this season which has been a little dull. As a City fan however [and one from before we got the millions] I wasn’t so surprised we failed to hold on to our crown. No matter how much cash is thrown around Eastlands a certain strand of the club’s DNA hasn’t changed – City have never been the kind of club to retain trophies. Even before last season’s triumph I knew that we wouldn’t for now be able to sustain it like United can do.

    Most of my enjoyment of the PL has come from the crazier games, such as the 5-5 WBA/Utd draw last weekend. I’ve generally looked outside of the league for the best stuff though – Wigan and Swansea’s cup wins were a joy to behold [even though we lost one of those finals].

    Sorry, that previous comment was intended for the Premier League season review article, not sure why it posted on the wrong one, strange.

    Good points as always Ian but the PL will no doubt point to another increase in attendances to suggets that everything is fine. It’s in everyones interest (teams; PL; Sky etc.) to keep up the hype however to disguise the underlying problems.

    Wonderful season for the Swans though – and looking forward to two Welsh teams next season.
