    The Big Four -- Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea -- dominate the league, having occupied the top four spots four straight seasons (2004-08).
    Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan said of the Big Four's dominance, 'This league is in danger of becoming one of the most boring but great leagues in the world.'
    The British Home Office tightened rules for granting work permits to players outside the European Union in response to concerns that League clubs were passing over young British players in favor of less-expensive foreign players.

    It is the most lucrative soccer league in the world, with revenues of over $3 billion (2007-08).
