One Wish For The 2008/2009 Premier League Season

premier league logo1 One Wish For The 2008/2009 Premier League SeasonFor the upcoming Premier League season, I have one wish.

If you’re a neutral follower of the league, as I am, all I wish is that we can find a team that has the balls to play attractive, attacking football and that isn’t afraid to go for the jugular against the Big Four. Simply put, I’m looking for an underdog who is pleasing to watch, delivers results, makes opposition teams work harder and is something you can believe in.

In previous seasons, it was Wigan Athletic (2005-2006), Reading (2006-2007) and Fulham (latter half of 2007-2008).

Right now, the only team I think is capable of winning hearts and minds this season — outside the Big Four — is Tottenham. What do you think? Who could be the surprise underdog of the 2008/2009 season?
