There are not 5 clubs fighting for 1st in the premier league. There is two and alot of hype around the rest of the clubs running in a two horse race.

The only thing blurring the line is Liverpool, who are thought of as "Big Four" but haven't won since the Premier League broke away and saw a severe decline last season. Other than that, it's just as non-competitive as Spain or Italy.

Liverpool and Arsenal are "also ran" clubs.
4 teams have won the Premiere League since 1992/93.
Blackburn were just a kink in the chain. 2 teams have wont it in the last 5 years. Liverpool, Spurs, Newcastle, Villa and Everton that you mention never won it.
So yeh the Premiere League is about as competititve as teh Scottish League where if you bet on 2 teams you can make money :S

We're justifying our love for a competitive league that we can watch live at the stadium.

Fire lost a heartbreaker last night to HOU. Down 2-0 at one point, Carr scored (2 matches in a row), then a HOU own goal made it 2-2. Then Ching (HOU) rocked an amazing scissor-kick to make it 3-2 HOU. That goal might win goal of the year, watch. Anyways, Ljundbergs cross to Conde tied it 3-3 with like 5 mins in the 2nd, then Ching (HOU) scored for a hat trick and HOU won 4-3.
