Unpredictable, enthralling, stupendous. These three adjectives are perfect for describing the footballing season of 2011-2012.
Across all of the four major leagues—the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A—we have had intense, riveting competition on all fronts. Furthermore, the UEFA Champions League has witnessed its fair share of dramatic moments.
Manchester United's defeat to Wigan Athletic has intensified the title race, while Real Madrid seem to be moving toward a collapse. Across in Italy, the Serie A title race is differentiated by a mere point between juggernauts Juventus and AC Milan.
The Bundesliga might have been decided, but all season had four teams—Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Schalke and Borussia Mönchengladbach—eying the top prize.
Four perennial heavyweights remain in the UEFA Champions League, and barring Chelsea, who I think are not at their best this season, all the remaining teams—Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona—are equally capable of winning it.
Has this been Europe's most exciting season? Let's probe a bit deeper.
