England 2014-2015

Chelsea and Manchester City are eliminated from the Fair League. See Explanation for why.

This is the Fair League Table as of May 25 2015

Arsenal are champions! The title was decided on the final day (unlike in the Boring Boring Title-buying League), with Manchester United coming in second. Tottenham Hotspurs are third and Southampton getting fourth place before Liverpool on goal difference.

We have ignored the unfairness of external money in football, and here is the final league table for 2014/2015:

Manchester United can still win the Fair League Table before the final round is played. They will, if they win and Arsenal lose. Third place and direct qualification to the Champions League is still possible for Liverpool, Southampton, Tottenham and Swansea.

One wonders only what if… what if football as a sport wasn’t spoilt by external money?

Well well, this could go right to the wire with Man United closing down the gap on Arsenal…
