Except Man U, they always win. The EPL is only 4 or 5 good clubs. Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle. In Australia soccer fans only support those clubs. Even though Liverpool haven't won a major title in over 20 years and Newcastle in a very long time, it's always the same teams on top of the table.
Who told you Newcastle were a good club?
They have never won anything for about 50 years.
Scum, Liverpool & Arsenal are the biggest teams in England. Chelsea got bought by a Russian billionaire so they pretty much bought success for the last decade. Manchester City now have untold riches due to wealthy arab owners. They look set to be a successful team for years to come.
Leeds are one of the Top 8 clubs in England. Used to be one of the top 4 but we've been badly run by a vile old crook by the name of Ken Bates for the last 9 years. He stole all our money and used the club to finance his lifestyle of private jets and expensive lunches on the French Riviera whilst our club suffered administration and very nearly liquidation.
We're on the way back now though. We expect to be promoted to the Premier League in the next couple of years. Once we're back where we belong we will again be one of the top clubs in England
