John Brewin: Premier League Preview 2011-12

Full of intrigue, but by no means vintage in quality, would seem an accurate summation of the 2010-11 Premier League season. Allegations that this was the worst Manchester United title-winning side of all the eleven since the reformation of English football persist, though their winning margin of nine points was their best in a decade. It barely said much for their rivals. A summer bereft of a major tournament for the European nations gave rise to a vacuum into which rabid transfer speculation was only too glad to step. Some of the purported major deals remain undone at time of writing but names like Sergio Aguero, Gervinho, Romelu Lukaku, and David De Gea have arrived from Europe, though the majority of deals have been intra-mural in the Premier League.
