Quality of squad before spend and quality of players bought. Chelsea, City are now dominant due to monies spent. Pep is no angel* but I doubt that he could get Fulham to win the EPL without monies.

There's nothing revolutionary about 93 points in a 1st season. Borinho had 95 in his 1st.

you keep spinning your wheels

1. Pep has changed what is required to win the league
2. IIRC, a team needs maximum points to win the league
3. On the flip side, Mourinho, who had 95 points previously, did not revolutionize the league by collecting_maximum_points

SAF - treble. did that revolutionize the league?

You have a problem following threads you are trolling. You asked whether Conte was revolutionising in with his 93 points EPL win. I said it can't be when somebody has done it b/4.

Liverpool's 97 points was 18 points more than Manure had when they won the treble and still Liverpool finished 2nd. So the requirements to win have been changed by the bar being raised.

Pep is a coach not a magician.

It is not about him. It is about his teams. Many of the naysayers, including you I presume, were saying he couldn’t play like Barca in the EPL. The league was meant to be fast and furious and physical. He has got his teams to play his way and win. And possession football combined with high pressing is unusual in England.

FA Cup Rotherham United, Burnley, Newport County, Swansea City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Watford
League Cup Oxford United, Fulham, Leicester City, Burton Albion, Chelsea
Mind u nah pk vs Chelsea


:rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

VAR was not used in the Swansea game because the match was played at a non Premier League ground

City win from an offside goal

Were Manure excluded from the cup competitions? Why did City only beat small teams?

We already saw high pressing with Rodgers at Liverpool and Pochettino at Southampton. Klopp also took it to another level at Liverpool and it usually results in more possession as we see with Liverpool in many games. Also the quality of squad also makes possession easier.
The opinion out there is that the most exciting teams to watch in EPL are Liverpool and City. That was the same when Liverpool missed out on the title to City in 2014.
