Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 38: Manchester United Wins the Title

alternative route Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 38: Manchester United Wins the Title

It may be little consolation, but Manchester United has clinched the APL 2011/2012 title.

As I mentioned in my last article, if both Manchester sides were to win by the same margin then United would win the league. This is down to the fact that United was playing away at a mid-table side while City were playing at home against a team who were languishing near the bottom.

Manchester United’s 6.81 total for their 0-1 win was enough to see them take the crown by the slender margin of 0.11 points. Despite having an inferior goal difference, United won the league as a result of winning 13 away games compared to City’s 10.

Elsewhere, the APL looks rather familiar to the Premier League. Wigan finished a place higher as a result of their late season surge but that is largely where the differences end.

Arsenal were the weekend’s big winners for their away win at West Brom. Their score of 7.01 was enough to keep Spurs at bay who could only muster 6.45 for beating Fulham 2-0.

    So, I’m probably missing something but in the end, aside from 1 & 2 doing the switcheroo, the league is the same as the regular table. Doesn’t that just vindicate the way the Premier league is setup? is this really an alternative?

    It does appear to be a ton of effort for very little reward.
