THE OFFICIAL 1991/92 FOOTBALL LEAGUE VIDEO REVIEW
Following UEFA's 1990 decision to allow English football team permission to play in European competitions there had been reasons to feel positive about the national game again. However as the television football rights were about to be negociated at the end of the 1991/92 season rumours spread about a breakaway league involving the 'Big Five' (Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur). Despite these fears being allayed there was a sense of inevitable change to the way the game would be run at home which was being forced by the clubs themselves. At the end there was one last surprise for the out of date Football League as the FA took over the running of the game and announced the formation of the Premier League starting the following season.
As runaway champions the previous season is seemed to manager George Graham that Arsenal were about to begin a dynasty and take over from the declining Liverpool who were still realing from the body blow of Kenny Dalglish's shock resignation the previous February. With Graeme Souness arriving to fill the vacancy after a successful spell in Scotland there was still hope for some success.
If one North-West club was ailing then the once mighty Manchester United were now in a position to be considered real championship contenders. Having won the European Cup Winners Cup the previous season, Alex Ferguson had put together a team that he hoped would put to bed the enormous expectations of their fans who had to wait in hope for the last 25 years.
While only three of the 'Big Five' seemed to have a realistic chance of winning the title there were many up and coming teams about take on the challenge. Howard Wilkinson's Leeds United had suprised many with a fourth place in their first season back in Division One and were not afraid to spend cash on new players to strengthen the team. On the other side of Yorkshire, Sheffield Wednesday had a striker in David Hirst who was coveted by many for the goals he scored. But within days of the start of the season manager, Ron Atkinson quit to take the job at Aston Villa which meant the fresh faced, Trevor Francis had to learn the job quickly.
Of the London challenge, Cup winners Tottenham Hotspur had sold Paul Gascoigne while third place Crystal Palace feared the break up of their deadly partnership of Ian Wright and Mark Bright and both would feel weakened for it.
