Premier League Seasons Part I: 1992-1997 | The Scotsman, the SAS and Old Football |

In the first of our five part series looking back over the Premier League seasons so far, we turn the clock back to 1992 with the birth of the Premier League and the rising dominance of Manchester United,  as a whole new ball game got underway for the English top flight.  Four of the first five titles were clinched by the Red Devils, but as well as reflecting on their success we have delved into the data to reflect on a free-scoring period with the likes of Alan Shearer, Andy Cole and others making a name for themselves in the initial Premier League seasons.

Because some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them. On the whole, the youngest Premier League managers step into the spotlight in unwanted situations, taking over teams in trouble or peril, and have to try lift the dressing rooms that they not too long beforehand were a part of as players. But, as we’ll find out in this podcast, some of these fresh faces get to step into the breach on their own terms with a mixture of results.
