So United treble winners are voted the best team of all time!
Steve will not be happy about that, not happy at all

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn’t argue with that great achievement.

13 Oct 2018 17:12:45
Not saying they weren’t a great team but I’m a betting man and I would wager 99 times out of 100 three things wouldn’t happen again in succession . Bergy missing a pen Giggs worldie and two goals in two minutes of injury time! Mind you Pires penalty v Portsmouth was equally lucky! Makes up for Rooney’s dive to end 49 game run - not that I still hold it against him much! Invincibles for me and Steve should be unhappy ( but how would we know 😂😂) COYG.

The original subject by the bbc was best prem team. It has been turned around by pundits, the treble had nothing to do with the prem. They weren't unbeaten in the prem and the other two comps shouldn't have come into the debate. Good luck to them, they were my second team, they didn't go unbeaten so, i don't get it.

Some very good points there Sussex mate ;-)
Unfortunately Steve VAR isn't available in this poll mate ;-)
Maybe the phrase greatest premier league team meant to exclude Barcelona and Real rather than 100% premier league performances.
It's doesn't really matter it's just a poll of people's opinion and United have more fans than any other club so were always highly likely to come top which doesn't mean their achievement wasn't deserving just that people will always be biased, as was my vote for Arsenal:-) .

I don't doubt the quality of that utd team, they were a very strong team, obviously very resilient and infinite quality but they got beat in the league, that shows signs of weakness to me. Lol.

13 Oct 2018 20:22:47
Boys I have a serious question for you. Those were great years in the premium. 2 top sides united and arsenal now my question is do arsenal miss Highbury. I was their a few times and there was a good atmosphere there. If you lot could vote would you have kept Highbury.
I know it's all about the money now but in a football sense was Highbury better?

13 Oct 2018 20:33:08
Just checking Steve do you think think the Invincibles were better because that United team lost in the Prem only you hadn’t mentioned it 😂😂😂😂COYG.

13 Oct 2018 20:42:01
Sussex, they got beat, didn't they. Lol.

13 Oct 2018 20:53:35
Highbury will always be a place where my memories of Arsenal were made. New ones need to be made at the Emirates. But at the end of the day it is only a sports stadium. A bloody good one, it just needs a few ghosts.

13 Oct 2018 20:59:32
Yes 12 mate i would go back to Highbury yesterday if possible mate.
To me the Emirates represents a time where Arsenal football club lost its footballing ambition and put financial success a long long way before football success.
Hopefully this might change going forward but for me we forgot to pack our football ambitions when we left Highbury.
The move to the Emirates has so far been horrible in terms of atmosphere and mentality.

Steve If someone beat Bolts 100 metres world record time but only came 2nd in his next race would he still be a world record holder :-)

13 Oct 2018 21:20:35
Did they? I didn’t know! Leahy Highbury all day long and twice on Sunday which given Sky scheduling might just happen COYG.

13 Oct 2018 21:34:38
Gunner but he'd have been beaten.

13 Oct 2018 21:36:42
Talking about Sky scheduling Sussex our next 2 games are next Monday and the following Sunday and both on sky sports so worth a cheeky week pass at £13 apposed to two £8 day passes :-)
Every little helps :-) 4 bottles of Becks that is :-)

13 Oct 2018 21:56:29
62 in Florida at the moment beautiful 90 degrees and massive plus is they have Prem all over the place . If you can look past Robbie’s Earl and Mustoe coverage not too bad! Bit odd watching Fulham get thrashed at 7am though ( not (complaining though ) COYG.

13 Oct 2018 22:46:49
Sussex mate you don't know what your missing, it's been a lovely day in the UK today about 22 degrees with the warmest light winds you ever did feel plus aldi are doing a big daddy 16oz steak for a cheeky fiver right now :-)
I can only suggest you get yourself home whole stocks last :-)

The United treble winning team was a superb team, with one of the best midfields I can recall. However, the achievement of going undefeated for a season, the only club to have done so in modern English top tier football, was an amazing feat. I marginally preferred the 1998 double winning team, who only lost one match all season. I would have to check which of these two great Arsenalsteams had a higher points tally. The Leicester title winning team also were a fabulous team, clearly not in the class of United or Arsenal, but what an achievement.

14 Oct 2018 09:15:30
I agree RG Leicester city are worth a mention simply because what they achieved in going from only escaping relegation in the last couple of weeks of the previous season to winning the title with 84 points the following season without spending a kings ransom is every bit as unlikely to be repeated as another team going a season unbeaten.
Plus some of the Liverpool teams of the 70s and 80s were pretty awesome too, money wasn't such a big factor back then but Liverpool under Shankley Paisley Fagan and Dalglish were a winning machine in an extremely competitive period both in the old first division and European cup, although typing this I've just remembered the question was about the premier league :- (
Wow I still shock myself sometimes with my stupidity levels and I've had 56 years to get used to it :-)

14 Oct 2018 16:21:17
I still find it ridiculous that they ask premier league specific questions instead of top flight as though everything before the PL was somehow lesser.

14 Oct 2018 21:46:19
Me too Eden mate, I still have trouble thinking of the football league clubs as anything other than 2nd 3rd and 4th division, mind you to me 50p will always be 10 Bob:-)

14 Oct 2018 22:56:15
G62 think you answered your own question there, no ones bettered our unbeaten run in terms of accumulating more points without been beaten.
