Best Sides To Have Played in the Premier League

Recommended Posts

99 side for me, and I will always remember a certain Alan Hansen saying before the treble 'You can't win anything with kids' egg in his face mega style, he made that remark after Fergies young side lost 3-1 to Aston Villa on the opening day of the 1995-96 season and they went on from there winning the league twice and the FA Cup and if you would like to add the Charity Shield as a trophy.

They don't care about that apparently because they know Uefa and the other big clubs don't like them. I've even heard certain City fans claim it's fixed so they don't win it. 

Truth is we all know very well they'd love to win it, I'd imagine all the corruption and not caring talk would vanish into the air over night if they did.

I think City have done something basically no other team, apart from Liverpool for a couple of seasons, has done. They’ve cracked the code to consistently beating, with absolute reliability, weaker teams in the league. And it’s basically impossible for anyone to match. No matter how much better than the rest you were, it was always admitted in England that you couldn’t just win almost every game, and there would maybe be some scope for a challenger to elbow in.

But there’s no real romance to it for a neutral or for an external observer. It’s like when Lyon won the league 9 times or whatever. It’s obviously very impressive, but hardly anyone talks about those Lyon teams outwith France because they made very little impression on the wider world.

It's official

Man City title-winning centurion's team named greatest Premier League side of all-time

 

Well, GQ has stated how they really feel, in a list of the top 28 Premier League sides of all time. Who comes in at number one, you ask?

None other than Pep Guardiola’s Centurion Blues.

2017/18 was a remarkable season for Manchester City. The Premier League team of the year ended with five City players: Nicolas Otamendi, Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero.

But not only was the brand of football perhaps the most entertaining English football has ever seen, the sheer dominance of the Etihad side in Pep Guardiola’s second season in charge was quantified by records set one after another.

 

The Centurion’s laundry list of records set at the time looked something like this:

  • First team to reach 100 points
  • Most consecutive wins (18)
  • Best goal difference (+79)
  • Biggest points margin (19)
  • Most wins (32)
  • Most goals (106)

Whether or not you personally believe the 2017/18 iteration of Guardiola’s City is the true ‘GOAT’, you can't argue with the statistics. And those statistics make it simple, The Centurion Blues were truly the best. 

It is worth mentioning that two other City teams featured in the top ten.

The 2018/19 City side came in at #4, and Roberto Mancini's 2011/2012 title winning team landed in the #10 spot.
