English Premier League - the best ever?
For those of us Aussie soccer fans who love to keep tabs on what’s going on over in the land of the Poms – it’s been a great season so far – and it may prove to be the best one ever since the dawn of the Premier League over two decades ago.
There are several reasons for this – but these are mainly concerned with managerial changes.

Congratulations to our 2 Grand Final Champions!!
IGA National Premier League NSW Men’s 1 – Grade 12
Blacktown City entered the finals series as the Premiers and they made their way to this match via the most direct route with a win over Blacktown Spartans in the Major Semi Final.
Manly United had finished the competition six points further back in third place and they took a longer path to this match with a loss to the Spartans in the Preliminary Semi Final, followed by a win over South Coast Wolves in the Minor Semi Final before they downed the Spartans in the Preliminary Final.
In head-to-head matches during the competition Blacktown City had claimed all the points with a 1-0 victory in the first round and then a 2-1 result when the teams met in the second round.
This match was very tight from beginning to end with neither team willing to concede a millimetre to their opponents and that resulted in no goals being produced in the game before the final whistle sounded. Extra time was required but still the deadlock remained unbroken and so it was that the match would be decided by penalty kicks. It was here that Blacktown came to the fore as they claimed the match by converting four kicks to Manly’s two. That meant that Blacktown City hold the joint crowns as Premiers and Champions while the valiant Manly were far from disgraced.
IGA National Premier League NSW Men’s 1 – Grade 15
Blacktown City finished the competition as the Premiers and they had produced a 2-1 victory over Bonnyrigg White Eagles in the Major Semi Final to claim their place in this match.
On the final table for the season Sydney United 58 were five points further back in fifth position and they made their way through with a 2-0 win over Sutherland Sharks in the Elimination Semi Final, a 2-1 success over APIA Leichhardt Tigers in the Minor Semi Final and a 3-2 victory over Bonnyrigg White Eagles in the Preliminary Final.
In head-to-head matches during the competition Blacktown City had secured all the points with a 1-0 win in the first round match and another 1-0 result when they teams clashed in the second round.
That form proved to be an accurate guide as Blacktown scored a goal in each half thanks to strikes from J. Pandazopoulos and Y. Al-Tay and that was enough to give them a 2-0 win and the joint crowns as Premiers and Champions. Sydney United 58 were far from disgraced and they will live to fight another day.
