I think that the level of play among the top clubs this year has gone down. Liverpool look absolutely awful. They can barely string together a few passes and they are still boring to watch. Arsenal too seem to lack the dynamic movement of the forwards and midfield that they had last year. They also seem to be coming forward less from the back. Manchester Utd. too seem to be missing the combination play from Keane, Giggs, Scholes, and Ruud of last year. And do I need to say anything about Newcastle? They're nowhere near the club they were last year. Tottenham, Everton, Blackburn, Leeds, Middlesborough, and Charlton are all looking pretty poor. Chelsea and Birmingham are the only clubs that are consistantly exciting to watch this year. Anyone agree?
