This season we’ve seen just about everything. From massive cup upsets, manager sacking records being set, shock results and unexpected league positions — and that’s just the Premier League! Have you got your vintage football shirt ready for the Premier League & Champions League finals?
The Top Flight Tidings
The 2022/23 season has seen its fair share of crazy results, questionable decisions and exciting drama. From the get go, we’ve seen unexpected results, some of the very first coming when Brentford beat United 4-0, Leeds humiliating Chelsea 3-0 and Liverpool thrashing Bournemouth 9-0 — and that was just the first 4 match days!
Three days after *that* Bournemouth humbling, we saw our first sacking of this Premier League season after Scott Parker’s men conceded 16 goals in their first 4 matches, only scoring 2.
The next sacking came just 8 days later when Chelsea said their goodbyes to Thomas Tuchel. Fast forward to today and the Premier League manager sacking record has been broken, with 13 managers being sacked in total, so far. The previous record was 10 sackings in a single season which was first set in the 2013/14 season.
The Race for Top 4
This season has been full of surprises but one of the biggest has certainly been the current league standings. After narrowly missing out on the title last season by being 1 point behind Manchester City, Liverpool are currently sitting in 8th, a pretty poor top half position for their standards.
With Arsenal last winning a Premier League trophy in their 2003/04 ‘Invincible’ season, they’re currently leading this title race ahead of Manchester City. Two decades later, could this finally be their season?
The fight for Champions League football is just as exciting. With Newcastle, Spurs, Manchester United and even Aston Villa all within a few points, the race for top 4 is well and truly on. Villa, who would've thought?
If you’re in need of an authentic vintage Premier League football shirt before the end of the season, we’ve got you covered.
Champions League Latest
From the group stages kicking off in early September last year to the final taking place in under 2 months time, it’s been an exciting journey and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping now the knockouts are in full swing.
The round of 16 saw Chelsea beat Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate despite their poor Premier League performances. Real Madrid smashed Liverpool 6-2 on aggregate whilst Benfica destroyed Club Brugge 7-1 on aggregate. There hasn’t been a shortage of goals and the quarter final legs should be just as good!
