The Latest Thrills and Trends in the English Premier League
If you are looking for a lot of thrills (such as fatsuit wrestlers playing soccer, for example), look no further than what goes on in the English Premier League. The newly-promoted Leicester City is certainly getting a lot of positive attention. In its first 5 games, it has already been up against Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton (the latter three having ranked in the top 5 last season), and they have already amassed 8 points. An impressive feat, if the self-proclaimed experts may say so themselves. Much of the credit probably goes to the Argentinian power duo Leonardo Ulloa and Esteban Cambiasso.
On the Man U front, skeptics may now have to take a step back and concede that they may have been too quick to say that £32M was too much to pay for Eliaquim Mangala and his infamous pink afro shagpile carpets. On his first run, he proved to be an excellent support provider for Vincent Kompany. They may just get (more than) their money’s worth, after all, as long as he keeps it up. And this could be the start of a very productive and powerful partnership between the two.
But, clearly, the action does not happen solely on the field. Forget the drama that goes on out there, all the whoop and drama that take place behind the scenes are just as compelling.
Transfer talks and contract discussions are always being thrown around. Matt Targett is currently being stalked by Southampton for a 5-year contract. Of course, there are also the talks of Arsenal keen on Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrian Rabiot, who will be sold in January 2015, unless, of course, Rabiot decides to stay with Paris Saint-Germain and renew his contract.
If Manchester City has its way, its number one pick this summer for a transfer would be Everton midfielder Ross Barkley. This was after they deemed Barkley’s hefty £50M price tag too much when the last season ended. City is said to be willing to pay £30M for the young player. Will they finally be able to get the England National Team player this time around – at the price they name – or will they have to haggle more?
But the talks do not focus solely on who wants who, and who’s paying how much for whom. There are even graver issues at hand, and it affects the Premier League as a whole.
Despite the fact that “third-party ownership”, or TPO, of players has been banned in England since 2006, there have been several “suspect” instances that this may have been violated. However, it seems that things are being shaken up even more, what with the latest news about Chelsea allegedly investing in the third-partner ownership fund called Burnaby Investments, which is reportedly responsible for buying and hocking players at Sporting Lisbon and other clubs, with all that money they just need to relax and go play roulette online. Granted, Burnaby does not have any stakes in players currently playing in England, but this could actually set a precedent. The lack of action on the Premier League’s part on Chelsea’s involvement is quite telling, don’t you think?
