The Premier League is back! Finally! And, if we’re honest, we expected a little bit more.

We know that we’re being ungrateful, but after all of this waiting, the preseason buildups, the transfer sagas that make The Lord Of The Rings trilogy look like an unfinished short story and seemingly everyone having a ticket on the managerial merry-go-round, we wanted bigger things from the first day.

Yes, of course, we couldn’t bank on Aston Villa beating Arsenal (mainly because the bank is currently full of Arsenal’s unspent millions). And with Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez not playing and Wayne Rooney only coming on as a substitute, each of their own transfer epics still look to play out for their full scheduled duration of eternity.

Considering how much excitement we invested into the start of the season, we feel a little shortchanged by the EPL opening weekend. So we’re outlining what have been the seven biggest letdowns of Week 1 of the 2013-14 season.
