First, what do we mean when we say “farmers league”? This language is used to describe when a single team dominates a league for a long time. Suppose a team wins the league twice or three times in a row, or over 3 out of 4, 4 out of 5, and so on. This is an example.
In other words, has the EPL always been a league for farmers? Has a team been the best in the league for a long time?
Check it out…
1. Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of Manchester United when they were a big team.
Manchester United has won the league three years in a row. It has done this three times already.
In second place, Chelsea had Jose Mourinho as their manager and they did very well.
Chelsea won the league two years in a row, setting new records and making other teams play catch up. He left the league, came back, and won the league with Chelsea.
3. Pep Guardiola was in charge of Manchester City when he was in charge of the team.
Manchester City has won the league three times out of five times. They are almost there. This is another victory, but this one is done in a different way and breaks records as it goes. Everybody thought Pep couldn’t do it in the EPL. Now it looks like Man City has won the league before it even starts.
However, some people say that the reason the EPL isn’t a farmers league is because after winning two consecutive seasons, another team must come out and win to break the streak, except for Ferguson’s Manchester United, which did three straight. In other leagues, a team can win for five straight seasons, like La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A, and the Eredivisie.
