Season Review: West Ham

Season Review Bilic was touted to lose his job all season, especially after 5-1 and 3-0 losses to Arsenal but their owners kept faith. West Ham somehow finished 11th. Everything about their season was average and rather inconsistent, only making the top half on four occasions. Their highlight was putting Chelsea out of the league […]

Season Review: West Brom

Season Review The Baggies seemed to be everyone’s second favourite team this season. They were strangely exciting before reaching 40 points, despite Rondon only netting 8 times, and recorded their second highest Premiership finish (behind 2012-13). Their cup runs were short lived which probably helped, given their high average age of the squad and lack […]

Season Review: Watford

Season Review What was Watford’s aim this season? And did they achieve it? I’m not sure anybody knows. Assuming it was “reach 40 points and survive” they were spot on. They lack identity under the current owners. Numbers They were actually in the top half (including 10th) for 17 gameweeks but ended up in 17th […]

Season Review: Tottenham

Season Review Another very strong showing from Pochettino’s men. Excellent defensively and going forwards. Their only real grumble will be that they didn’t win anything. In the end they were second to Chelsea, the team who inflicted their first league defeat. They never actually held the top spot, being in second for half of all […]

Season Review: Swansea

Season Review Swansea were the only team to sack their manager twice during the domestic season. That really summed them up; a lack of organisation and preparation. Guidolin and Bradley weren’t good enough. Barring the losses of Williams and Taylor their summer dealings weren’t that bad, with Llorente and Mawson particularly effective. The splurge on […]

Season Review: Sunderland

Season Review What better way to celebrate a decade of underwhelming Premier League appearances than by getting relegated. It’s been coming. Credit to their owners for sticking by Moyes in a time of little patience, despite his own negative thoughts about their predicament. Could anyone have saved a squad with such little quality? The one […]

Season Review: Stoke

Season Review Stoke are going backwards. They’ve previously been lauded for the acquisition of five Champions League winners: Muniesa, Bojan, Affelay, Shaqiri and Arnautovic – but realistically none of them played a big role in their former club’s glory. Former Barca men Bojan and Affelay now can’t even get a game for Stoke. Third round […]
