I don't follow EPL, but will Newcastle get their act together next season?

Could be worse...Nottingham barely avoided the drop to League One. They're already the only Champions League (European Cup) Champions not be in their country's top Divison, and they could've fallen to the third level VERY easily, and have to be on the shortlist next year.

There is no official tier 4 league. Which amateur league was it?

A lot of rumors are swirling that Thomas Tuchel will leave Dortmund after the season. I think he stays if BVB win the Pokal, but he would be a solid hire if he leaves. Maybe Arsenal?

Arsenal rumors

*******...that seems like a terrible move for him. Sure he's second in his country, but he has made the CL quarterfinals, has a TON of high caliber talent and great prospects, plus some of the best fan support in the world. That must be a money play, because Arsenal is lateral at best for a German manager.

Aston Villa won the European Cup too and they arent in the top division.

Meant multiple, my bad. Still weird that the only ones are in England, and it really isn't even close after that. No other winner has even been relegated, let alone established themselves in a lower division.

I'd contend that clubs 15-50(so bottom quarter of PL and the Championship/top of L1) in England are usually more competitive than almost any other country in the world.....aside from maybe Germany.
