The big danger for teams like Manchester United with their difficult transition is in the value of Champions League football to stocks and also to lure the best players in Europe to play for you.
(PRWEB UK) 15 January 2014
The Premier League has seen many changes at the top clubs this season, which has cleared a path to a more competitive and exciting division say DSG.
We are now entering the business end of the season at more than half way with Manchester United just five points off 4th place and the Champions League and Manchester City and Arsenal trading 1st place. Liverpool are holding onto the 4th Champions League spot by one point ahead of Everton. Just 5 points separate the top four teams as of writing and that can only be great news for the Premier League brand say DSG.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “We are, I believe, witnessing the start of a new post-Ferguson era in the Premier League and the EPL will never be the same again. Manchester United, whilst still likely to feature in the title challenge, will be just one of several teams in with a shout and that deeper competitiveness is what makes the Premier League the most exciting in Europe. Over the past few seasons, the league started looking like a near carbon copy of the last and it’s great to see that mould breaking down. Big clubs will always attract bigger players and this will influence their league position over time, but this season has also thrown up some surprises with some players maturing into better players and others emerging,and this could change which clubs will be able to challenge for the Premier League title longer term.”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that the Premier League is readjusting and this is providing an opportunity for established teams to jump ahead of those in transition. “The big danger for teams like Manchester United with their difficult transition is in the value of Champions League football to stocks and also to lure the best players in Europe to play for you. United have been weakening over the past few years with RVP providing some flattery to the situation last year. The priority for Man United this year will be to simply be in the top 4 and that will not be easy. Liverpool and Everton are both playing well and Spurs are improving so they will need to do some business in January to keep in the hunt. Failure to qualify for the Champion League could do long term damage.”
