What does it take to win a league title?
On the first episode of the Soccerlens Podcast, Stephen Darwin is joined by blogger Neil Jones as we take a closer look at all the ingredients of a successful title chase and the different factors that can affect a title race.
In particular we look at the success Manchester United have had this season and why their competition have struggled to match their efforts.
We talk about the value of consistency and squad balance in winning titles, the role the manager plays in a club’s success in the league and in Europe, how Liverpool blew it in the January transfer window, whether Huntelaar can help Madrid beat Barcelona, and finally, who’ll be winning the Bundesliga this year.
