DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

English Premier League

THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE IS THE TOP MOST LEAGUES FOR PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL IN ENGLAND. IT CONSISTS OF 20 TEAMS WHO PLAY 2 MATCHES AGAINST EACH OTHER, ONE ON THEIR HOME GROUND AND THE OTHER ONE AWAY OR ON THE OPPOSING TEAMS HOME GROUND. THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE ALSO KNOWN AS THE BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE OPERATES ON THE BASIS OF PROMOTION AND RELEGATION. THE TOP 4 TEAMS AT THE END OF THE SEASON IN MAY QUALIFY FOR THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS TOURNAMENT FOR CLUBS ALL OVER THE WORLD - THE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WHILE THE BOTTOM 3 FACE RELEGATION. MOST OF THE GAMES ARE PLAYED IN THE AFTERNOON ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS AND FEW ARE PLAYED MID WEEK AS A LATE KICK OFF. THE CURRENT CHAMPIONS MANCHESTER UNITED WHO WON THE 2012-2013 SEASON HAVE LOST THEIR PROWESS AND ARE CURRENTLY AT THE 8TH SPOT IN THE LEAGUE. THAT MEANS AFTER DECADES, THEY WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. THE PREMIER LEAGUE IS THE MOST EXCITING LEAGUE TO WATCH BECAUSE UNLIKE THE LA LIGA AND BUNDES LIGA, THERE IS STIFF COMPETITION AND ALOT CAN HAPPEN AND CHANGE EVERY WEEK. NO TEAM CAN BE LEFT OUT AND MANY SHOCKING DEFEATS OCCUR WEEK IN AND WEEK OUT. THE BUNDES LIGA (GERMANY) AND LA LIGA (SPAIN) SEE DOMINANCE OF 2 CLUBS EACH AND THEY FIGHT IT OUT FOR THE TITLE. THE PREMIER LEAGUE ON THE OTHER HAND IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THUS MAKING IT THE BEST LEAGUE TO WATCH.

THE PLAYERS AND MANAGERS SIGN A CONTRACT WITH THE CLUB SO THAT THEY CAN PLAY IN THE LEAGUE. THE TERMS OF THE CONTRACT AND THE WAGES ARE DECIDED BOTH BY THE BOARD OF THE CLUB AND THE PLAYER. CLUBS CAN PURCHASE PLAYERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD BUYING THEM FROM OTHER CLUBS OR ENROLLING THEM IN THE YOUTH ACADEMY. TRANSFERS AND PURCHASES AND LOANING OUT OF PLAYERS CAN ONLY HAPPEN DURING THE TRANSFER WINDOW. THERE ARE 2 TRANSFER WINDOWS DURING THE YEAR, ONE DURING THE NEW YEARS WHICH LASTS FOR A MONTH AND THE OTHER BETWEEN THE TRANSITIONS OF SEASONS (MID MAY TO MID AUGUST). DURING THIS TIME CLUBS TRYING AND SIGN PLAYERS THAT THEY NEED OR THINK THEY WILL DO WELL AND BRING THE CLUB GLORY. STRIKERS, MID FIELDERS, DEFENDERS, GOAL KEEPERS, AND MANAGERS ALL CAN BE SIGNED DURING THIS PERIOID. IF SIGNING PLAYERS FROM DIFFERENT CLUBS, THE CLUB MUST PAY THE AMOUNT IN THE RELEASE CLAUSE. KEY AND CRITICAL SIGNINGS OF EXCELLENT AND UP COMING PLAYERS CAN DRASTICALLY SEND THE CLUB IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ENSURING THAT THEY DO WELL. HOWEVER OFTEN TIMES EVEN GREAT PLAYERS PERFORM REALLY POORLY FOR YEARS (FERNANDO TORRES). TORRES WAS THOUGHT TO BE THE BEST STRIKER IN THE WORLD WHILE PLAYING FOR LIVERPOOL BUT WHEN CHELSEA BOUGHT HIM FOR 50 MILLION POUNDS, HE DID NOT PERFORM ANY WHERE CLOSE TO THE LEVEL OF PLAY SEEN IN LIVERPOOL. THIS IS THE RISKS CLUBS AND MANAGERS TAKE TO SEE THEIR CLUBS LIFT THE TROPHY. DESPITE HAVING VERY STIFF COMPETITION YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT, THERE HAS EMERGED A GROUP OF 5 CLUBS WHICH ARE THE FAVOURITES TO WIN THE TITLE AND ALSO THE FAN FAVOURITES ALL AROUND THE WORLD. MANCHESTER UNITED, CHELSEA, LIVERPOOL, MANCHESTER CITY AND ARSENAL. THESE CLUBS HAVE EMERGED AS THE STRONGER ONES BUT VERY OFTEN DOES WE SEE THAT THEY CANT KEEP THEIR NAME OF THE STRONGEST ONES. MANCHESTER UNITED IS THE CLUB, WHICH HAS WON THE MOST NUMBER OF TITLES IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE, A RECORD OF 13. THEIR MANAGER SIR ALEX FERGUSSON WHO RETIRED AFTER THE 2012-2013 SEASON WAS THE LONGEST SERVING MANAGER IN THE HISTORY OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE AND UNDOUBTLY ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THEIR SUCCESS IN THE PAST. WORLD CLASS PLAYERS LIKE WAYNE ROONEY, ROBIN VAN PERSIE AND UPCOMING STARS LIKE ADNAN JANUJAZ ALL COMPRISE OF THE STAR STUDDED TEAM. DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF THESE PLAYERS, THE NEW MANAGER DAVID MOYES CAN’T SEEN TO DO MUCH FOR THE TEAM. CURRENTLY ON THE 8TH SPOT AND ABOUT TO LOSE IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE IN THE ROUND OF 16 WITH NO CHANCE TO QUALIFY FOR NEXT YEARS LEAGUE, MANCHESTER UNITED NEED TO RETHINK THEIR STRATEGY AND PLAN FOR NEXT SEASON OR IT MAY BE THEIR DOWNFALL.

CHELSEA SAW THEIR BEST IN THE 2004-2006 SEASON WHERE NEW MANAGER JOSE MOURINHO JUST OUTCLASED ALL THE OTHER 19 TEAMS SHATTERING EVERY RECORD POSSIBLE, MOST POINTS IN A SEASON, LEAST NUMBER OF GOALS CONCEDED ETC. CHELSEA SIGNED MOURINHO BACK DURING THE START OF THE 2013-2014 SEASON AND IT SHOWS WHY HE IS ONE OF THE BEST MANAGERS IN THE WORLD. MOYES MANAGING A WORLD CLASS NEW TEAM HAS BROUGHT MANCHESTER UNITED FROM THE TOP SPOT TO THE EIGHT HOWEVER MOURINHO HAS BROUGHT CHELSEA FROM ALWAYS BEING IN THE TOP 4 TO THE FIRST POSITION. MOURINHO TRULY IS THE “SPECIAL ONE”. CHELSEA HAS STARS LIKE EDEN HAZARD, OSCAR, FERNANDO TORRES, AND FRANK LAMPARD ETC. THEY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE UPCOMING TEAMS TO WATCH WINNING THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK AND LOOKING PROMISING TO DO SO THIS YEAR AS WELL DESPITE HAVING A NEW MANAGER. MOURINHO HAS NEVER LOST A HOME GAME IN A PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH SINCE HE JOINED AND LEFT CHELSEA. CURRENTLY HE IS ON 71 WINS WITH 0 LOSSES WHICH IS A RECORD IN ITS SELF. NO MANAGER HAS EVER COME CLOSE TO THIS RECORD AND IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE ANY TEAM COULD BREAK IT THIS SEASON. DURING THE NEXT TRANSFER WINDOW, CHELSEA WILL BE LOOKING TO SIGN A STRIKER TO REPLACE TORRES, AS HE HAS NEVER BEEN IN CONSISTENT FORM EVER SINCE 2009. IF CHELSEA COULD SIGN A GREAT STRIKER, THEY WOULD WITHOUT A DOUBT BE ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED AND FAVOURITES TO WIN MANY COMPETITIONS NEXT YEAR.

LIVERPOOL IS A CLUB, WHICH SAW EXTREME DOMINANCE LIKE MAN UTD IN THE PAST. LIVERPOOL FC IS ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUBS IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE HAVING WON 5 EUROPEAN CUBS, 3 UEFA CUPS AND 3 UEFA SUPER CUPS (MORE THAN ANY OTHER ENGLISH CLUB). IT WAS FOUNDED IN 1892 AND EVER SINCE ITS HOME GROUND HAS BEEN THE LEGENDARY ANFIELD STADIUM. THOUGH AFTER 2005 LIVERPOOLS DOMINANCE HAS BEEN FADING, THEYVE ALWAYS BEEN IN THE TOP 6 OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE AND ENSURING NO CLUB TAKES THEM LIKELY ESPECIALLY WITH TALENT SUCH AS THE LEGENDARY STEVEN GERRARD, LUIS SUAREZ, DANIEL STURRDIGE, KOLO TOURE ETC. LIVERPOOLS KIT SPORTS ALL RED AND HENCE THE NICKNAME “THE REDS”. AFTER SEEING THE FALLING PERFORMANCE OF THE CLUB SINCE 2006, MANAGERS KEPT COMING AND GOING. BRENDON ROGERS THE CURRENT MANAGER OF LIVERPOOL FC WAS BROUGHT IN AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE 2011-12 SEASONS. HE HAS SHOWN HIS BRILLIANCE BY HELPING LIVERPOOL IMPROVES DRASTICALLY. THOUGH HE COULD NOT MAKE LIVERPOOL QUALIFY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, THEIR POSITION THIS YEAR TO POSSIBLY WIN THE PREMIER LEAGUE AND QUALIFY FOR NEXT YEARS CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LOOKS QUITE PROMISING. IT’S LOOKING LIKE LIVERPOOLS GLORY DAYS MAY BE AROUND THE CORNER WITH BRENDON ROGERS LEADING THEM FROM THE BENCH.

MANCHESTER CITY IS ONE OF THOSE CLUBS WHICH HAS NOT SEEN MUCH GLORY IN THE PAST BUT AS OF TODAY, THEY ARE WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE WORLD.THEIR HOME FIELD IS CALLED THE ETIHAD STADIUM. SUPERSTARS LIKE SERGIO AGUERO, ALVARO NEGREDO, JOE HART, ZABALETA, YAYA TOURE ALL COMPRISE OF THEIR STAR STUDDED LINE UP. MANCHESTER CITY HAS SEEN AMAZING PERFORMANCES SINE THE 2011-12 SEASON WHERE THEY NARROWLY BEAT MANCHESTER UNITED TO WIN THE PREMIER LEAGUE. THE LAST MATCH OF THE SEASON MANCHESTER CITY NEEDED TO SCORE 2 GOALS IN 5 MINUTES AND THEY DID TO NARROWLY CLINCH THE TITLE AWAY FROM THEIR DERBY RIVALS. EVER SINCE THEY HAVE NOT LOOKED BACK AND THEY HAVE HAD NO REASON TO. CURRENTLY THIRD IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE, THEY HAVE 2 MATCHES IN HAND AND POTENTIALLY COULD TIE CHELSEA AT THE TOP IF THEY WIN THE TWO. MANCHESTER CITY FC'S HOME KIT COLORS ARE BLUE AND WHITE AND THEY ARE NICKNAMED “CITY”. AFTER THE REMOVAL OF ROBERTO MANCINI AS THE MANAGER, MANUEL PELLAGRINI SIGNED WITH CITY TO BE THEIR NEW MANAGER AND AS WE CAN SEE, HIS TACTICS AND GENIUS IS SHOWING ON THE PITCH AS CITY NEVER LOST A HOME GAME IN MONTHS UNTIL MOURINHO'S CHELSEA MET THEM.

THE MANCHESTER CITY 2013-14 SQUAD

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT ARSENAL, YOU THINK OF ONE MAN- ARSENE WENGER WHO HAS BEEN MANAGING THE CLUB EVER SINCE 1996. HE HAS SEEN BOTH GLORY AND FAILURE FROM ARSENAL BUT HAS ALWAYS HELD THEIR NAME HIGH. WENGER HAS WON 3 PREMIER LEAGUE TITLES, 4 FA CUP TITLES AND 4 COMMUNITY SHIELD TITLES EVER SINCE HE JOINED ARSENAL. THOUGH ARSENAL HAS NOT SEEN ANY SILVERWARE IN THE 8 YEARS, THEY NEVER LOSE HOPE. THEIR SQUAD CONSISTS OF PLAYERS LIKE THEO WALCOTT, OLIVIER GIROUD, THOMAS MERTESACKER, LUCAS PODOLSKI AND MESUT OZIL WHO ARSENAL HAS PAID THE MOST EVER FOR A TRANSFER TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE. ARSENAL STARTED OFF THE 2013-14 SEASON IN THE TOP SPOT FOR 3 MONTHS WITH AMAZING SKILL AND COORDINATION FROM THE PLAYERS. THOUGH CURRENTLY ONLY 4 POINTS BEHIND LEADERS CHELSEA, THEY LOOK LIKE A FORMIDABLE SQUAD WHO WILL QUALIFY FOR NEXT YEARS CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. MESUT OZIL HAS CHANGED THE DYNAMICS OF THE TEAM BRINGING IN MORE CONFIDENCE AND GAME PLAY. ARSENALS HOME KIT IS RED AND WHITE. THEIR NAME NAME IS THE GUNNERS AND THEIR HOME STADIUM IS THE EMIRATES WHICH IS A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT STADIUM. THE FANS WHO ARE VERY PASSIONATE ARE CALLED GOONERS AND NEVER LOSE HOPE EVEN THOUGH ARSENAL HAVE NOT WON ANYTHING FOR QUITE A LONG TIME.

ROONEY

ROONEY IS A 28 YEAR OLD STRIKER FOR MANCHESTER UNITED AND WITHOUT A DOUBT HIS FLAIR, SKILL AND PASSION FOR THE GAME CAN BE SEEN IN EVERY GAME HE APPEARS.

EDEN HAZARD- CHELSEA

HAZARD IS A BELGIAN BORN 22 YEAR OLD WHO IS CURRENTLY PLAYING FOR CHELSEA AND MARK MY WORDS HE HAS A BALLON D'OR IN HIS FUTURE. THIS BOY HAS SO MUCH TALENT IN HIM ITS RIDICULUS. HE JOINED CHELSEA IN THE 2012-13 SEASON AND USUALLY IT TAKES PLAYERS TIME TO ADJUST TO THE LEAGUE, HOWEVER THIS MAN SHOWED HIS TALENT FROM DAY 1 AND CAUGHT EVERYONES EYE. HAZARD HAS TO BE THE BEST SIGNING CHELSEA HAS MADE AFTER DIDIER DROGBA. HIS STYLE OF FAST PACED ATTACKING AND DRIBBLING THROUGH EVEN THE BEST DEFENDERS CAN BE SEEN EVERY TIME HE IS ON THE PITCH. SINCE HIS CAREER IN CHELSEA, HE HAS SCORED 27 GOALS IN 100 APPEARANCES AND THATS VERY IMPRESSIVE FOR A BOY LIKE HIM HAVING JUST SWITCHED TO THE LEAGUE. ALL HIS GOALS ARE JUST MASTERCLASS AND BELGIUM WILL BE IN A CROWD FAVOURITE TO BEAT THE BEST DURING THE WORLD CUP.

LUIS SUAREZ- LIVERPOOL

SUAREZ IS A 26 YEAR OLD URUGIAN STRIKER WHO JOINED LIVERPOOL IN 2011. HE HAS SPEED AND PRECISION AND STRENGTH, ALL 3 TRAITS NEEDED BY A STAR STRIKER AND HE IS ARGUABLY BECOMING ONE OF THE BEST. THIS PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON HE IS THE HIGHEST SCORER MILES AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION WITH 23 GOALS. SUAREZ THOUGH IS ALSO FAMOUS FOR THE WRONG REASONS AS RACIALLY ABUSING PLAYERS AND BITING THEM AND HAS RECEIVED MANY SUSPENSIONS ON THOSE GROUNDS. DESPITE THOSE QUALITIES, NO ONE CAN DOUBT HIS SKILL AND LIVERPOOL CURRENTLY SECOND IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE TABLE COUNTS ON HIM TO PERFORM. HE HAS SCORED 75 GOALS FOR LIVERPOOL EVER SINCE HE JOINED AND FOR URUGUAY HE HAS SCORED 39.

SERGIO AGUERO- MANCHESTER CITY

AGUERO IS A 25-YEAR-OLD ARGENTINE STRIKER WHO JOINED CITY IN 2011.

MEZUT OZIL- ARSENAL

OZIL IS A 25 YEAR OLD WINGER FOR GERMANY AND ARSENAL. HE JOINED ARSENAL IN THE CURRENT 2014 SEASON AND BEFORE THAT HE PLAYED FOR REAL MADRID (UNDOUBTLY ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS OUT THERE) AND PLAYED TO HIS POTENTIAL. NO ONE EXPECTED ARSENAL TO BE TOPPING THE LEAGUE FOR 3 MONTHS BUT EVERYONE KNEW THE REASON WHY - OZIL. OZIL BROUGHT A WHOLE NEW GAME TO ARSENAL INCREASING EVERYONES CONFIDENCE AND PLAY STYLE. HE CHANGED ARSENALS TRAJECTORY FOR GOOD AND WE CAN STILL SEE IT IN MARCH. DESPITE NOT SCORING MANY GOALS, HE IS THE PLAY MAKER FOR HIS CLUBS AND HE IS THE REASON WHY HIS CLUBS SUCCEED. FOR REAL MADRID HE SCORED 27 GOALS IN 4 SEASONS AND FOR ARSENAL SINCE HE JOINED IN AUGUST HE HAS SCORED 5.
