Its August already, the players are warming up and the fans are excited as it is the start of the season 2015/16 in the Barclays English Premier League.
It’s the time when every football enthusiast is hooked to their club to see which player goes to which team which in turn will give us the exact layout of the team. Millions of dollars are hereby seeing being transacted and this further encompasses the attention of the followers.
As always, the two big clubs of Manchester have spent hell lot of money and have bought some of the football heavyweights. Manchester United spending close to a hundred million dollars this summer on big names like Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin.
Manchester City purchased the young winger Raheem Sterling for a bid of £42million. Liverpool on the other hand bought some interesting buys including the big striker Christian Benteke who is expected to be a sucessful goal scorer this season and along with experienced midfielder in the form of Milner.
The new trend that is clear in this season is that the not so big clubs like Crystal Palace and Stoke City are not afraid to invest in big names and big money with french midfielder Yohan Cabaye and swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri joining these clubs respectively.
With these new stars joining the premier league one can expect the twists and turns throughout this season as it starts to blossom.
Its two weeks into the season already and Manchester City are looking pretty safe at the top spot on the table with a convincing win over their first two opponents including the defending champions Chelsea. It’s still early to comment on the league table as there are plenty more games to play and the winner will only be decided by May next year but one thing that is certain this season is that the underdogs will come into play and will cause an uproar or two against the big teams, the proof of which was the opening game of Arsenal when they lost 2-0 in their opening game to West Ham at home.
The excitement is growing and the teams are closing up on finalising the squad before the close of the transfer window by the end of August, and with the weekend approaching, it’s time to get free from all the day’s work early, grab a drink, sit in front of the television screen and watch week three of this ever entertaining league unfold.
