The fat lady has sung - Part One

So, it's the end of the Premier League 09/10 and it's been the best one in quite a while. I don't remember a season with so much drama. The league changed hands twenty-four times this year. Chelsea's 103 goals scored was also a new record. We also had the first PL team going to administration, the revolving door of the boardroom at Fratton Park, not to mention the saga that has become of Rafa's tenure at Anfield. We'll remember this years league for a lot of reasons and not all of them being good.

Congratulations to Chelsea who were merely the best of a bad bunch. Although, they jumped rather than eased over the line with their eight goals at Stamford Bridge. No team before has lost so many games and won the league. Even though they did the double over the other members of the 'supposed' big four, they still only won the title by one solitary point.

As an Arsenal fan, I'm glad we finished third. Though there were some who thought that was out of our grasp, back in August. Thankfully for my sanity, they were wrong. We were even in with a chance of winning it there, before the two worst goalkeeping displays of the season. The least said about that, the better I'm sure you'll agree.

We also had the implosion of Michael Owen's career and the disappointment of Dimitar Berbatov up at Old Trafford. Who knows where they would have been if someone other than Rooney had scored more than five goals this season. Poor showing from the supporting cast.

Though that can't be said about the two sets of noisy neighbours who have secured fourth and fifth place. Who knows where they will finish next season? With the support Daniel Levy has shown Harry and the bottomless pit of money available to Mr Mancini, things could become even more interesting depending on who catches their eyes at the World Cup.
