Looking back at Crystal Palaces‘ last season they certainly had its ups and downs. From Tony Pulis’s surprise departure just before the opening game of the season, to Neil Warnock taking charge again only to be dismissed and have Alan Pardew returning to the club. With Perdew in charge, a much needed winning streak was finally achieved. In the first 15 games after his return, the team pulled in 10 wins, to then lose a few games afterwards. According to record stats, Crystal averaged 0.85 points per game before Pardew’s joining and 1.6 points per game after he joined. They ended on a hopeful note for the next season, thanks to Pardew. Scott Dann, proved to be the player of the season for Crystal, truly holding the core of the team’s defense. Crystal finished in the tenth position, one rank higher than the previous year. In recent news, as of July 13, Mansion Group has been confirmed as the official main sponsor of Crystal Palaces. Mansion Group is a global online gambling business, owning a few online casinos such as Mansion Casino Australia.

As for Manchester City, they entered the year as champions and struggled to uphold their previous year’s successes’. Man City took home a total of 79 points, which was 7 points lower than the previous season. Yaya Touere, in 2013/2014 scored 20 premier league goals, however this past year, Touere as of November had only scored 2 goals. It can’t be disputed that this past year has not been impressive for Touere. Hopefully, with his much needed rest over the summer he will return will a new energy and be ready to impress. As a whole, the team ended strong, winning the last six games of the season and went out with a bang. Unfortunately, the rest of their year left them with much lower achievements than was predicted. Man City finished in the Second Position, one standing lower than the previous season. As a hopeful for the team, latest news reports, that as of August 30, Man City announced the team’s newest member, Kevin De Bruyne. De Bruyne was voted as the player of the year for 2014-15. He has entered into a six-year deal and signed for a £54 million.
