Bold starts of the English Premier League

Sean
Dyche’s team, in its turn, takes the seventh position. The Clarets
won over Chelsea and Everton and made draw with Tottenham and
Liverpool. We have to mention that all these were away matches.
Ganbling&Sports decided to remember the last cases when rather
modest English clubs had begun the season rather powerfully and to
note where they finished at the end of the season.

Leicester

Season:
2015/16.

Final
place:

1.

A
lot of was told about the fantastic season of Leicester and football
fans will remember this story for many years. In autumn 2015 very few
people could assume that Claudio Ranieri’s team will win a title, and
therefore its bright start surprised all fans. The first defeat Foxes
suffered only in the seventh tour from Arsenal in a match which they
approached being on the fourth place in the tournament bracket. The
failure in game against Gunners, however, didn’t upset Leicester. In
the second half of November Claudio Ranieri’s team climbed up the top
of the Premier League and since then it practically didn’t leave the
first place. At some point it seemed that Arsenal will claim for the
champion’s title but Foxes at the end January bypassed the Gunners
and till the end of a season didn’t lose the leadership any more.

Crystal
Palace

Season:
2015/16.

Final
place:

15.

Not
only Leicester demonstrated great results on the start of a season
2015/16. Crystal Palace was the other team which surprised the
football public. After eight rounds of that championship the southern
Londoners took the fourth place in standings, being behind the leader
with only three points. Perhaps the guest victory over Chelsea that
was a defending champion of England at that time was the brightest
point of season’s start for Eagles. Nevertheless, Alan Pardew’s
team didn’t go far. Palace began to demonstrate the most different
results and with approach of Boxing Day got stuck at all. Londoners
didn’t taste victories in the Premier League from December 26 till
April 9, having scored for that period only five points by means of
draws. Fortunately, Eagles managed to improve their results and
didn’t face serious fight for survival. Crystal Palace finished the
championship on the fifteenth position.

Southampton  Season: 2014/15

Southampton

Season:
2014/15.

Final
place:

7.

In
2014 Southampton was headed by Ronald Koeman and the Dutch expert
continued the work that was initiated by Mauricio Pochettino about
whom we will talk. Saints started in the championship with the defeat
at Anfield from Liverpool, but then southerners won 26 points in
eleven subsequent matches. After twelve rounds the team took the
second line in standings, conceding only to Chelsea. The team of
Ronald Koeman experienced some failures but they were short. Till
spring Southampton was a real contender to get into the list of four
winners however then Saints left a zone of the Champions League and
didn’t return any more. Finally Southampton took the seventh line and
received the ticket into the European League.

West
Ham

Season:
2014/15.

Final
place:

12.

The
season 2014/15 turned out to be quite successful for “West Ham”.
In nine starting rounds the London team which was headed by Samuel
Allardyce had scored sixteen points. Beautiful victories over
Liverpool and Manchester City were adding some additional glory to
the great start of the Hammerers. As a result, after nine games
“West Ham” was at the fourth place. The London team didn’t
stop. Almost before Boxing Day Allardyce’s team was considered to be
the challenger for getting into the Champions League. But dense
winter calendar had its effect and the second part of a season the
Hammerers frankly failed. The period since the end of January till
the middle of March when “West Ham” didn’t win any victory
turned out to be especially bad. The team finished the championship
on the twelfth place but at the same time got into the European
League thanks to the rating of Fair Play.

Southampton

Season:
2013/14.

Final
place:

8.

Now
Mauricio Pochettino is working successfully in Tottenham, playing in
a draw against Real at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu . And he made his
name in Southampton which headed in January 2013. The next season
the team began just perfectly, having suffered only one defeat in
eleven starting games of the championship. At that time the Saints
took the third line in the table, and the lag from the leading
Arsenal was three test points. But at the end of autumn Mauricio
Pochettino’s team experienced some failures and failed to win six
games in succession. Southampton remained the strong fighter up to
the end of a season and took the eighth place that became the
repetition of the best result in the history of club.

West Bromwich  Season: 2012/13

West
Bromwich

Season:
2012/13.

Final
place:

8.

The
fans of West Bromwich still remember the season 2012/2013 with
special feelings. The Throstles attracted attention from the very
first round when they crushed Liverpool with the score 3:0, having
saddened Brendan Rogers’s debut. Steve Clark’s team continued to look
very confidently and to score points steadily. In the middle of
November “West Brom” was marked out by one more loud
sensation, having won over Chelsea. After thirteen rounds the
Throstles were the third in the tournament bracket, being behind the
leading Manchester United only with four points. The winter calendar
became a stumbling block for Steve Clark’s team – at the end of
December till the beginning of February any victory wasn’t won in six
games. For the whole second circle of the Premier League West
Bromwich had won only four meetings, but at the same time it could
take the eighth line. The last round, as well as the first, turned
out to be bright for the Throstles – the white and blacks played in
a draw with Manchester United with the score 5:5 in a farewell match
of sir Alex Ferguson.

Newcastle

Season:
2011/12.

Final
place:

5.

Having
returned to the Premier League, Newcastle finished season 2010/11
only on the twelfth place, and therefore only few expected great
results from the team. Nevertheless, the Magpies perfectly began the
championship, having suffered the first defeat only in the middle of
November in frames of the twelfth round. By that moment Alan Pardew’s
team entered the top-3. After eleven games without defeats Newcastle
got into a black strip and couldn’t win six games in succession. But
club colors clearly demonstrate that the black strip is followed by
the white one. Alan Pardew’s team started to score points and in
spring it gave the result of six victories, five of which were
“dry”. During the last four rounds the Magpies suffered
three defeats and this fact didn’t let them to get into the
Champions League zone. The team finished the championship on the
fifth position, being behind Tottenham with four points. It is
interesting that more than a half of 56 goals of Newcastle, namely
29, were kicked by Demba Ba and Papiss Cissé.
