Sadly like many other folk I think so.

Point is its the same top 4 year in year out although this year Aston Villa could break into the club of 4.

What can be done to freshen up the product.

The only premier league I care about is the blue square premier (conference) I'm much more interested to hear about the likes of Cambridge, Oxford, Burton and the mighty Histon than Chelski, Moan United, etc.
What can be done? put an end to ridiculous transfer fees and allow a limited amount of overseas players per team for a start.

Well since Coventry got relegated I haven't been an avid watcher of Premier League or MotD, but I stil watch the Sunday game ofn Sky. I'd like to see Villa do well this season, it would make a chgange form the usual top 4.

I wonder if Wenger has been too long at Arsenal, they've had good seasons but not won a lot. Liverpool have been improving. Chelsea, I've no idea how well they are playing but I see they are equal 2nd with Villa and 'Pool.

The bottom of the table is interesting, bottom 7 are very close, though some have a game in hand

Since both the top and bottom are all up for grabs, how can you say it's boring? You'd be hard pressed to name which teams are likely to be relegated, it could be any 3 from about 12. As for the top, it's looking likely to be between Man U and Liverpool, with their match on March 14 at Old Trafford looking particularly tasty!

If you want boring, try Snooker!
