English Premier League: History and Facts
Forty seven (47) different clubs were part of the English top flight since its reorganization and only five of them triumphed in May. Manchester United is the most successful club in the Premier League era as “The Red Devils” were champions in 13 EPL seasons, while Chelsea are on second position with only 4 trophies. This makes more than three times distance between the top two teams, but however, the Premier League remains the most followed league with some notable and remarkable games, seasons and turning points behind. Arsenal (3), Manchester City (2) and Blackburn Rovers (1) are teams that felt the glorious moment of lifting the Premier League trophy, while Leicester City makes very serious claim to upset all big names in season 2015-2016. Besides all club names which can be found in the Premier League hall of fame, we surely feel somehow surprised that we don’t recognize clubs like Liverpool, as “The Reds” from Merseyside won the UEFA Champions League back in 2005, when they took part in perhaps the most dramatic final game ever, but they still struggle to win the league, although Liverpool were amazingly close to execute it in some occasions.
Well, despite the absence of that trophy under its new name, Liverpool remains one from the most supported and valuable English clubs and “Reds” from city of The Beatles are involved in some of the biggest games, with huge audience and interest. Thus English Premier League grows with amazing temps and games like Liverpool vs Manchester United, Derby of Manchester, North London Derby (involving Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur), Tyne Wear Derby (Newcastle vs Sunderland), Liverpool Derby (Liverpool FC vs Everton) and some other games became something special and deeply beloved by every Premier League follower. Of course, it’s full of city or regional derbies and not only with English clubs involved in. Even more, we all know that we can find more clubs in the different English football tiers, as most famous of them are surely current EPL members from Swansea City, as well as the former Premier League members Cardiff City – currently member of English Football Championship. We can also remember about some rumors and proposals back in the years, regarding the possibility both Scottish giants, forming the “Old Firm” rivalry, (Rangers and Celtic) to switch from Scottish Premiership into the English Premier League, but they were never acted upon.
European Football and English clubs
All Premier League clubs are regular participants in the different UEFA competitions (except the period when all English clubs were banned from the UEFA competitions after the tragedy at Heysel Stadium) and fact that they’re from the most successful teams in Europe speaks for quality of English football. Clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, Chelsea, Aston Villa can boast with the Champions League trophy in their showcases, while Leeds United and Arsenal are runner-ups. Meanwhile in the UEFA Europa League, formerly known as the UEFA Cup, The Premier League makes even wider expansion as the number of English clubs who have European trophy increases – Tottenham Hotspur and Ipswich Town are among the honored English teams at the continental scene.
Since the foundation back in 1992, English Premier League usually attracts if not all, most of the best names from all over the world and names like Peter Schmeichel, Nemanja Vidić, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Roy Keane Eric Cantona, Dennis Bergkamp, Gary Speed, Yaya Toure, Sergio Agüero, Petr Cech, Patrick Vieira, Gianfranco Zola, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jürgen Klinsmann, Michael Ballack, Juan Veron, Robin van Persie, Dimitar Berbatov, Carlos Tevez, Luis Suarez are only part of the foreigners who leave significant mark in modern era of English football. When we add the names of domestic lads like David James, Gary Neville, Sol Campbell, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Tony Adams, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes, Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen, Teddy Sheringham, Andy Cole, Ian Wright, Robby Fowler, Kevin Phillips, Robbie Kean, and many more… boy, this list looks endless!
All these players are simply great but would they be so good without the excellence of managerial job in English football? First name which pops in our mind is surely of sir Alex Ferguson as Scottish manager of Manchester United is the most successful name without any doubts, and he’ll surely be for more time! However, except Ferguson’s success, which obviously runs through his veins, there are some other managers who made their names as synonymous of the competition as well. Names like Arsène Wenger, Harry Redknapp, Jose Mourinho, Mark Hughes are only small part of them.
