LEGENDS

Since it’s inception, the Premier League has certainly has given us some of the finest football we have ever seen. English football was always fun to watch, but when more stars from around the world arrived into the league, the level of play became exceptional.

From Holland, to Italy, Denmark, France, Germany and beyond, the Premier league became the biggest attraction on earth where football was concerned. Yes the money was alluring, but so was the style of football. It might not be the most technical league in the world, but it certainly is the most exciting and entertaining.

  • Two Thoughts of the Day

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
