Report Football 2021/2022 in Discussions Posted yesterday at 12:49 PM Didn't only the top 2 teams get more PL points than Newcastle in 2022? I know people point the the January spend, but the upturn in results happened before most of those players even arrived, let alone before Guimares played. The improvement of the team was noticeable before any signings. Lots of promoted teams have a good first season where they finish 8th-13th on a low wage bill. Brentford have also had the benefit of Eriksen - who's ridiculously good. I'm not saying Frank's not done a very good job, but as TGT pointed out, it'd be doing it again that would be remarkable. If Liverpool win the CL then there's a fair claim to Klopp being manager of the season, but surely not PL manager of the season?
