Lets continue with the review of the Premier League teams to help you make up your mind in deciding what team you should support this season.
Premier League teams E – M
Everton: The Toffees
So close, yet so far. Everton’s hey day came in the mid 1980’s, they won the league two years in a row and narrowly lost the FA Cup final to Liverpool in 1986. Since then they are the team everyone wants to do well, and for the most part they do.
The last few years they have finished in the top 7, but they can never seem to clear that final hurdle and finish in the top 4 – this is not due to a lack of grit, determination, skill or flair, they have that in abundance. It is really down to lack of funds and the huge wall any team has to climb in order to maintain a position in the top four throughout the season.
Everton are a joy to watch, they play wonderful football and are the team everyone hates to meet, especially at home and you can’t help but love them. They will never win the league but they provide some wonderful entertainment.
Hull City: The Tigers
Hull are never going to set the world on fire. Last year the biggest drama was the owner wanting to the change the name of the club to “Hull Tigers” however the fans protested (peacefully) and luckily the FA stepped in and said they would not allow the name to be changed, thus settling the argument.
In the mean time, Hull City reached its first ever FA Cup final, and achieved its highest finish in the clubs history. The team will never have any superstars and will probably battle relegation this season, but they play good, honest football, and in Steve Bruce they have a truly lovable manger.
Leicester City: The Foxes
The classic yo-yo team – up one season and down the next. Their last visit to the Premier League came in 2004 and back down they went again. Leicester are most certainly an underdog and a team that will always struggle in the top flight.
On their day they can be a tricky team to play and they have a good squad of players. If you want to follow a local team with a rich history then Leicester is for you, however if you want to support a team that is going to win things, maybe Leicester isn’t the right fit.
