Two new Premiership downfall and contenders

This premiership start saw the downfall of Manchester United and Spurs . The Red devils drew their first 2 matches of the premier league while the super spender Spurs lost both their matches. Manchester united has spent more than 50 Millions pound in the transfer market which saw their worst possible start. Their new signings Owen hargreaves and Anderson is yet to make their premiership debut while the crisis filled Tevez made very little impact in the 90 minutes. Nani who replaced Rooney in the first match and started the match against Portsmouth did not impress much.

With all the four new signings yet to make a impact , the Red Devils lost Rooney due to injury and wil; be out of action for the next couple of months. Only player who made some chances for Manchester united was ronaldo who played brilliantly against Portsmouth was sent off for head butting. This draw and ronaldo's red card clearly signs the title loss for the champions.

Spurs who spent actively in the transfer market played the worst form of football losing to both Sunderland and then to Everton who clearly dominated the Spurs in all the aspects of the game.

This premiership season also saw the growth of two new title contenders apart from the top 4. This two clubs are Manchester City and Everton. Both played attacking football while defending perfectly. Another club that needs attraction is New Castle United who scored 3-0 in their starting fixture. Their new signings Smith and Geremi played a important part in their success.

The 3 teams of the top 4 made a positive start with Chelsea , Arsenal and Liverpool winning their starting matches comfortably.

Arsenal and Liverpool also made a winning start to their Champions League qualifiers.

Should there be a Salary Cap in Soccer?
Personally I think there should be! It’s just getting to be stupid money in soccer at the top of the premiership!
It’s always the same teams at the top proving that soccer success is based purely on money which ruins the idea of it being a sport! They’ve done it in rugby, basketball, hockey and American football and it makes the sports more competitive and better to watch!
I do a little Soccer Spread Betting from time to time and most matches don’t hold much surprise who is going to win, its boring! I want to see a team at the bottom pulling off an amazing season beating last seasons winners in a close fought battle!
Make things fair! It shouldn’t be about money!
