English Premier League Background
The current EPL tracks its origin to 1990, when Greg Dyke a TV host director consulted to broadcast matches featuring the big five football clubs then in the English football system; Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton, and Tottenham Hotspur. The meeting resulted in a series of negotiations with the Football Association which led the Football League challenge. The negotiation aimed at seeing if the FA community would be receptive of the broadcasting idea which was viewed to be a banger for the big five to collect extra revenue thus some of the other football teams in the English football system threatened to break away and form a super league competition. To curtail the Football Association’s authority, the top five England teams signed an agreement on 1st July 1997 which ushered in a new division, the FA Premier League. The new division had commercial independence from the football association and the Football league thus they were able to negotiate the acquisition of Broadcasting rights. Early 1992, giant English football clubs left the Football league and then the premier league was to operate within one league while the Football league retained the four lower divisions of the English football system. The operations of the Premier League and other leagues under the Football League mandate remained the same to date; they all operate through promotion and relegations with the Premier League being the top-level league owing to the involvement of top-level Football Clubs and well-established teams in it. The first EPL Premier League campaigns took place in 1992/1993 after which three teams were relegated from the 22 shareholder members League; West Ham United, Notts County, and Luton Town football clubs.
New Premier League Era
Premier League was dominated by four teams in the first decade; Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea were the top four position key holders for almost all EPL campaigns since the 2000s. The Big-four also went on to dominate football in Europe, hinging the Champions League multiple times, a performance which led to Premier league surpassing the Italian Serie A league which was the leading League in the world with most attendance and power. However, as we head towards the 2019/2020 English Premier League campaigns, things are quite different; the big four are now part of a fair competition which can go to any club. Only Manchester City has managed to dominate the First position for the last two seasons and seems on form to take its dominance even further. Currently, the most EPL competition favorite teams are Manchester City, and Liverpool; this is based on their last campaigns performance. However, after various transfers to Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea’s changed management, transfers to the Old Trafford, and many other English Premier League just to mention a few, the league outcome can only be predicted after play.
