    2003–04 FA Premier League

    2003–04 FA Premier League

    The 2003–04 FA Premier League season was the twelfth season of the Premier League. In the end, Arsenal went through the season without a single defeat – the first team ever to do so in a 38 game league season and the second team overall (the first was Preston North End in 1889, 115 years earlier, during a 22 game league season) and were crowned champions once more, at the expense of Chelsea, who had spent heavily throughout the season. Chelsea had been bolstered by a £100 million outlay on world-class players, a spree funded by the extensive financial resources of their new owner Roman Abramovich. Manchester United's attack was as strong as ever thanks to free-scoring Ruud van Nistelrooy, but the midfield was weakened following the pre-season £25 million sale of David Beckham to Real Madrid, and the centre of defence suffered a more severe setback after Rio Ferdinand was ruled out for the final four months of the season after being found guilty of the "failure or refusal to take a drugs test". The case of Rio Ferdinand started a debate about punishments relating to drug testing in football, with there being differing views on whether the punishment was too harsh or too lenient.

    The 1995–96 UEFA Champions League was the 41st season of UEFA's premier European club football tournament, and the fourth since its rebranding as the UEFA Champions League. The tournament was won by Juventus, who beat defending champions Ajax on penalties in the final for their first European Cup since 1985, and their second overall. It was the only Champions League title that Juventus won in the 1990s, despite their reaching the next two finals, and one of only two Italian wins in the final, despite there being a Serie A club in every final for seven consecutive years from 1992 to 1998. Years later, during the drug scandal, it turned out that the Juventus team had been using illegal substances for many years during the nineties, including the final in 1996.(Independent, NY Times) It was the first tournament in which three points were awarded for a win instead of two. Dynamo Kyiv won their tie against Aalborg BK, but, in their first group game against Panathinaikos, they were accused of a failed attempt to bribe referee Antonio López Nieto to get a win. Despite an appeal, they were thrown out of the competition by UEFA and were banned for the subsequent two years. Aalborg BK

Manchester United won the Premier League and qualified for the UEFA Champions League, while Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Newcastle United qualified for the UEFA Cup. Liverpool also qualified for the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup as runners-up of the FA Cup which was won by Manchester United.

This was only the second time that an Eastern European side had won the competition, after Steaua Bucureşti of Romania (1986). It was also the last tournament to be solely knock-out based, with a group stage added for the next season. This tournament would have marked the return of English clubs after a five-year ban resulting from the Heysel Stadium disaster in 1985 but English champions Liverpool had been banned for an additional year, so could not participate. Their spot in the qualification was simply vacated, giving Milan a first-round bye. Milan were the defending champions and were given a bye to the second round due to the absence of both an English and a Dutch side in the tournament, before being eliminated by Marseille in the quarter-finals after the second leg had been awarded as a 3–0 win for Marseille when the eventual runners-up were leading 1–0, and 2–1 on aggregate, in injury time, when the floodlights failed.

    The 2004 season was the 50th season of Pakistan domestic football. It was the inaugural season of the Pakistan Premier League, which was created as the National League and was a 16 team event. The bottom two teams were to be relegated, and to be replaced by two teams from the lower division. The new PFF President, Makhdoom Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat, decided that it was time for Pakistan to have a football league. He felt that past Presidents had neglected domestic football, and as a result, the national team suffered. A good example of this was the fact that national champions rarely played in AFC club competitions, and the Pakistan national team was one of the worst in the world. This would have been the first time since 1948, when the first domestic football tournament was played, that a league system would be used to find a national champion. 8 teams had automatically qualified from the previous seasons PFF Cup, they were: ABL, Pakistan Army, HBL, KPT, KRL, Pakistan Navy, PTCL and WAPDA.

    2002–03 FA Premier League

    The 2002–03 FA Premier League (referred to as the 2002–03 Barclaycard Premiership, due to sponsorship rights) was the eleventh season of the Premier League, the top division in English football. The first matches were played on 17 August 2002 and the last were played on 11 May 2003. Manchester United ended the campaign as champions for the eighth time in eleven years – an achievement made all the more remarkable by virtue of defending champions Arsenal having led by eight points on 2 March. Although this was a season of breaking new English domestic records for the Gunners, and leading at all fronts come the halfway stage, they threw away a priceless lead against Bolton Wanderers and finally surrendered the title with a 3–2 home defeat to Leeds United, in the 3rd-last game of the season. This result all but saved Leeds from relegation. Newcastle United and Chelsea were the remaining two teams, who qualified for the UEFA Champions League at the expense of Liverpool who had to settle for the UEFA Cup; they would be joined in Europe by Blackburn Rovers for their second successive season. Newly promoted sides Manchester City and Birmingham City finished in ninth and thirteenth,

    1992–93 FA Premier League

    The 1992–93 FA Premier League was the first season of the Premier League, the top division of English football. The season began on 15 August 1992 and ended on 11 May 1993. The league was made up of the 22 clubs that broke away from The Football League at the end of the 1991–92 season. The new league was backed up by a five-year, £305 million deal with BSkyB to televise Premier League matches. In concept, the Premier League was identical to the old First Division of the Football League, which was now reduced to three divisions. In May 1992, the breakaway league signed a broadcasting rights contract with British Sky Broadcasting and the BBC valued at £304 million, the largest such agreement in the history of British sport. The league's executive committee was unable, however, to secure title sponsorship for the new competition after eight clubs blocked a proposed £13 million deal with brewers Bass. Nonetheless, clubs began to utilise their dramatically increased wealth to fund a series of high-profile transfers. Shortly before the season began, newly-promoted Blackburn Rovers signed Southampton's 21-year-old England international striker Alan Shearer for a new British record fee

    The 2010–11 season was Blackpool F.C.'s debut season in the Premier League, after winning the 2009–10 Championship play-off Final in what was their 100th consecutive season in the Football League. It was also their 28th overall season in English football's top tier, but their first since 1971. It was Ian Holloway's second season as manager. The club finished 19th and were relegated back to The Championship. DJ Campbell and Charlie Adam finished joint-top scorers, with thirteen goals apiece. The talk during the build-up to the new season was mainly centred around the club's lack of activity in the transfer market. Indeed, 81 days passed between the play-off Final and the first arrivals at Bloomfield Road for the forthcoming season. After the release of five players, plus the sale of Ben Burgess to Notts County and the forced retirement of Stephen McPhee, coupled with the departure of the five loan players who finished the 2009-10 campaign at the club, Ian Holloway had just fifteen senior players at his disposal. On 11 August, however, the club replaced those five players with a quintet of new faces. A sixth, Chris Basham from Bolton Wanderers, followed two days later. On 13 August,

    1997–98 UEFA Champions League

    The 1997–98 UEFA Champions League was the 43rd season of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA's premier club football tournament, and the sixth since its rebranding from the "European Champion Clubs' Cup" or "European Cup". The tournament was won 1–0 by Real Madrid, winning for the first time in 32 years, beating Juventus who were playing in a third consecutive final. It started a run of three victories in five seasons for the Spanish giants. This season was the first to have six groups, as opposed to four in the previous tournament, which meant that only two group runners-up qualified for the quarter finals as opposed to all the second-placed teams.

Like the previous season, they lost only three league games all season. Unlike in 1998–99 season, they won by a comfortable margin – 18 points as opposed to a single point.

United had withdrawn from the 1999–2000 FA Cup in order to participate in the FIFA World Club Championship at the request of the FA who wanted United to compete to support England's bid to host the World Cup. Chelsea would go on to win the last FA Cup held at Wembley Stadium before its redevelopment. The League Cup final was won by Leicester City, for the second time in four seasons. In Europe, Leeds United reached the UEFA Cup semi final (where two Leeds fans, Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight, were stabbed to death preceding a game against Turkish side Galatasaray in Istanbul) and Arsenal were on the losing side to Galatasaray in the UEFA Cup final.

However, soon after Marseille's victory allegations of match fixing were levelled at them and their president Bernard Tapie. This involved a league game where Marseille, it emerged, had fixed their title-clinching Division 1 game against Valenciennes so they could concentrate on the Milan tie. It is believed that Tapie bribed Valenciennes to lose so that Marseille would win the French league earlier, giving them more time to prepare for the Champions League final. This resulted in Marseille

    Premier League 2008–09

    The 2008–09 Premier League season (known as the Barclays Premier League for sponsorship reasons) was the seventeenth since its establishment in 1992. Manchester United became champions for the eleventh time on the penultimate weekend of the season, defending their crown after winning their tenth Premier League title on the final day of the previous season. The campaign – the fixtures for which were announced on 16 June 2008 – began on Saturday 16 August 2008, and ended on 24 May 2009. A total of 20 teams contested the league, consisting of 17 who competed the previous season and three promoted from the Football League Championship. Starting with this season, clubs were now allowed to name seven substitutes on the bench instead of five. This season was also different in that there was no New Year's Day game, as is usually traditional. This was because the FA Cup Third Round is traditionally played on the first Saturday in January, which in 2009 fell in the usual spot for New Year's league games. September saw Manchester City taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group, transforming them into one of the worlds wealthiest football clubs, securing the signing of Robinho for a British

The league comprises sixteen teams, with Al-Ahly the defending champions for the fourth year in a row and for the thirty-third time in total. The Egyptian season began on 8 August 2008 and ended on 24 May 2009. As in any league, certain matches are the highlights of the season. In Egypt, the matches that are anticipated the most are those among the "triangle of power" in Egypt, which consists of Ahly, Zamalek and Ismaily. - Whether one refers to it as the "Egyptian Derby," the "Cairo Derby" or "Africa's Derby," Al Ahly v. Zamalek is one of the top derbies in the world. It is a match between Africa's most successful clubs, as they have 11 Champions League titles between them, five for Zamalek and six for Al Ahly. - The Cairo-Ismailia Rivalry is another clash of the titans in Egyptian football, as Cairo-based clubs Ahly and Zamalek have mixed relations with the city of Ismailia, home to the Ismaily Sports Club, the third most decorated side in Egypt. The Zamalek-Ismaily games are usually peaceful as the clubs' boards and fans have had traditionally

    The 1968 UEFA European Football Championship final tournament was held in Italy. This was the third European Football Championship, an event held every four years and organised by UEFA. The final tournament took place between 5 and 10 June 1968. It was in this year that the tournament changed its name from European Nations' Cup to European Championship. There were also some changes in the tournament's qualifying structure, with the two-legged home-and-away knock-out stage being replaced by a group phase. At the time, only four countries could play the final tournament which meant that there were only the semi-finals, the final and the third place match. The hosts were only announced after the qualifying round, which meant that they had to qualify along with all the others for the final stage. The qualification competition was played in two stages: a group stage (taking place from 1966 until 1968) and the quarter-finals (played in 1968). There were eight qualifying groups of four teams each with the exception of group 4, which only had three. The matches were played in a home-and-away basis. Victories were worth 2 points, draws 1 point, and defeats 0 points. Only group winners could

However, the start of the league was postponed for a week due to a referees' strike. The last games were played on 2 May 2009. Linfield were the defending champions. The league was reduced from sixteen to twelve teams due to a competition restructuration by the Irish FA. Five of last season's sixteen Premier League teams failed to gain a place in the new twelve-team Premiership, and one new team - Bangor - gained entry from the IFA Intermediate League. Of the five teams who missed out, three - Armagh City, Larne and Limavady United failed to obtain the necessary domestic licence. Portadown obtained a licence, but was controversially excluded because a club official missed a deadline for submitting an application form by several minutes. Finally, Donegal Celtic obtained a licence, but was ranked thirteenth in the entry list, and thus missed out by one place.

The competition was won for the second time by Real Madrid, who beat Fiorentina 2–0 in the final at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid, on 30 May 1957.

The draw for the preliminary round took place in UEFA headquarters in Paris on Friday, 29 June 1956. The 21 challengers of Real Madrid were grouped geographically into three pots.

    The 2011–12 Scottish Premier League was the fourteenth season of the Scottish Premier League, the highest division of Scottish football, since its inception in 1998. The season started on 23 July 2011 and ended on 13 May 2012. A total of twelve teams contested the league: eleven sides that competed in the 2010–11 SPL and one club promoted from the First Division. The new entry was First Division champions Dunfermline Athletic, who replaced relegated Hamilton Academical. Since Scotland climbed from sixteenth to fifteenth place in the UEFA association coefficient rankings at the end of the 2010–11 season, the league re-gained an additional third qualifying round berth for the UEFA Champions League. However, it lost that berth again the following season. Despite finishing in the second qualifying position for the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League, the eventual dissolution of Rangers allowed Motherwell to take their place in the competition for the first time in the club's history. On 7 April, Celtic won the title after a 6–0 away win against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. It was their first title in four years.

    The Liga Nacional de Ascenso 2009 season (officially "Torneo Primera A 2009") started on February 28, 2009. The defending champion and Apertura winner was Río Abajo and the Clausura winner was Orión. On December 12, 2009 a grand final was played where Río Abajo were crowned champions of the Liga Nacional de Ascenso after defeating Orión 3–1. However (as it happened in the 2008 edition) Río Abajo lost the promotion play-off, but this time against Alianza in a 2–1 aggregate score, thus failing to promote to the Liga Panameña de Fútbol. Fortunately for the 2010–11 edition of the Liga Nacional de Ascenso the champion will be promoted directly without playing a promotion play-off.

    The 2008-09 Clausura was the second part of the 2008-09 season of the Liga Nacional de Fútbol de Honduras, the first division national football league in Honduras. The season started on 10 January 2009 and finished on 24 May 2009. It followed the 2008-09 Apertura season. The winner will compete in the 2009-10 CONCACAF Champions League. On May 2, Honduras was awarded a 3rd spot in the 2009-2010 CONCACAF Champions League due to lack of adequate stadia in Belize. The 3rd spot would go to the short tournament runner-up with the highest overall season points total. Because of Real Espana's overall season point total of 68 being highest in the league, they clinch a spot in the 2009-2010 CONCACAF Champions League. Already a runner-up from Apertura 2008, it is guaranteed that the Clausura 2009 runner-up would not have a higher overall season point total than Real Espana. At this point, a bye to the Group Stage of the 09-10 CONCACAF CL is still up for grabs. Olimpia clinches a spot in the 2009-2010 CONCACAF Champions League with their victory over Vida. An Olimpia victory in the Final would clinch a Group Stage bye for Marathon. A loss would give Real Espana the bye. Either way, the

The 2004-05 season saw the National Division's roster of twelve clubs include: The twelve teams completed the round-robin by playing each other twice (once home and once away) by 24 April. Then, the league divided into three. The top four teams were separated from the rest and formed the 'Title group' . The bottom eight teams were then subdivided into two groups of four, titled 'Relegation group A' and 'Relegation group B' . In the event, the top four were F91 Dudelange, FC Etzella Ettelbruck, Jeunesse Esch, and FC Victoria Rosport. In each of the three mini-leagues, each team played each of the three other teams in the mini-league twice (once home and once away). To these results were added the 22 results of the first stage. The overall points totals (and goal difference, etc.) were used to determine each club's position in its respective mini-league. After calculating the final results after 28 games, F91 Dudelange, the top team in the title group, was declared the league champion. The fourth-placed team in each of the relegation groups (Union

Narva Trans finished in their best ever silver-medal position, while FC Flora also gained a place compared to last season on 2005 champions FC TVMK's disappointing year. The latter will enter the Intertoto Cup and the other two above mentioned teams enter the UEFA Cup qualifying rounds in the summer of 2007. The bottom of the table provided some intrigue as well. The two Tartu teams ended mid-table, with Tammeka's youthful-looking squad impressing under experienced coach and ex-international Sergei Ratnikov, in his first year as the head coach. Pärnu Vaprus was perhaps the surprise package of the season finishing seventh on their debut year in the Meistriliiga and bringing Pärnu back on to the Estonian football map. Mainly Russian-speaking Tallinn team, FC Ajax Lasnamäe, proved a point by staying up against all predictions. JK Viljandi Tulevik had a dreadful year and had to go into the play-offs against Esiliiga's JK Tallinna Kalev and lost, which should've meant their relegation a step down.

    Thai Premier League 2007

    The 2007 Thai Premier League had 16 teams, combining the 12 member clubs from the 2006 season, the top two clubs from Division 1, and two clubs from the Pro League 1. The official name of the league at this time was Thailand Premier League. Matches were normally played on Saturdays with a 4pm kick off time but there were some 5pm or 6pm started and some midweek fixtures. Evening kick offs were rare. The season would have a three-month break from mid-May to mid-August because of the Asian Cup which was being co-hosted by Thailand from July 7–29 and the world university games, the Universiade, in Bangkok from August 8–18. Normally only the Premier League champions are allowed to take part in the AFC Champions League. However, for the 2007 season, the runners-up would also be admitted due to the late completion of Indonesian domestic league and cup competitions.
