Premiership: A Two Horse Race?

The much awaited and hyped weekend has come and gone. Though we so a lot of action, not much has changed at the top of the premier league table. Arsenal still on top and Man U still very close in second spot. Chelsea and Liverpool though slowing down a little, still maintain their spots.

It is now looking like we can afford to count Chelsea oput of the title Challenge this season. Though i have already excluded Liverpool from the start of the season (i'm yet to be proven wrong by Rafa and his antics), Chelsea seem a strong force but have failed to hold fiem against the biggest challengers this season.
Is the title challenge set to be a two horse race?

Should there be a Salary Cap in Football?
Personally I think there should be! It’s just getting to be stupid money in football at the top of the premiership!
It’s always the same teams at the top proving that football success is based purely on money which ruins the idea of it being a sport! They’ve done it in rugby, basketball, hockey and American football and it makes the sports more competitive and better to watch!
I do a little Online Spread Betting from time to time and most matches don’t hold much surprise who is going to win, its boring! I want to see a team at the bottom pulling off an amazing season beating last seasons winners in a close fought battle!
Make things fair! It shouldn’t be about money!

In my Opinion JJ, though it is a two horse race, i don't think it is about the money. Reason the team currently at the top hasn't been there for three seasons. Moreso, among the first four teams at the top, Arsenal who has spent the least is on top of all. In terms of money spent this season i think Manchester United and Liverpool should be on top.
When Boro defeated Arsenal, are you saying you knew they will? I don't think so. The surprise factor is still there and that's what matters.Salary cap or no Salary cap.
However, i am not in support of Salary Cap. It takes away Genuine competition.

When betting on sporting events I always think those massive outsiders are worth a cheeky punt. For example man utd sticking six past Newcastle or Andy Murray going out that early on. When im browsing through some online sports betting websites i have a look at the specials and outsiders and see if i can see them happen. If so i may have a punt.
Normally ill have a bet on football because generally you can have an idea of a result or back a few outsiders and get some big odds!

All the money in the premiership and barely any of it stays in the UK so its not even helping the economy!
I do some Spread Betting (or more precisely Football Spread Betting) and even if I win big its still nothing compared to the average premiership players weekly wage!!!
