So it's back again, the world's best football league. A fairy tale happened last season, that "small" team compelled the whole footballing world to learn how to pronounce their name properly "without the letter C" and beat the 5000 to 1 odds to win it. They retained the bulk of their stars except Kante. So can they do it again? "Winning it this year is harder for us, maybe the odds are 6000 to 1" said Ranieri, their inspirational manager whom fans quickly nicknamed Godfather!
Maybe that's because of the influx of three high voltage managers into the EPL to topple him. Serial winner, Antonio Conte, poached Godfather's Kante to Chelsea. And that's the 2 best things that have happened at the bridge. In Kante, Conte has brought back Makelele like work ethic to the midfield that may inspire misfiring Costa whose misses last season were Costly. And hazardous Eden Hazard who was also simply lost in the mid garden of Eden. But fans hope the 2 will be back to clinical forms that saw them win it 2 years ago. I call them the dark horses this year, the surprise package.
Mourinho said way back at the Bridge, way before the sack that, the theatre of dreams job was his dream job, and years later he got it. I interpreted the Ibra signing as a feat to inject his rich European league winning experience into our baby forwards, Martial, Rashford, Lingaard etc and lead the team too like Cantona did when Giggs and Scholes were baby players. He's old, but he's still got goals in him. In resigning the Pog as football's wildest splash cash, we've got another Paul with Scholes like inch perfect passing to feed the guys upfront to score goals and win the league, which i think we'll do.
Our enemy noisy neighbours, City were also busy too, sipping a new Pepsi called Pep, who brought in great talent like Gundogan, and with a pool of talent there already, they are also very good contenders to win it like us. No, after us! Klopp's club is finetuning their reconstruction job to completion, beating Barca 4-0 in pre season. They brought in exciting prospects like Cameroonian, Joel Matip to aid them finish at the table's tip.
Arsenal football club, rather, Arsenal TV series wasn't busy in the summer transfers. And with talent there that doesn't match that of it's competitors, the trophylessness will go on and their fans will keep watching the Arsenal TV series, Game of thrones for the next season. Maybe Arsene will just pack his bags and run back to Monaco on foot. I applaud the delightful twinkle toe football he's injected there and his money making profit ideology anyway.
