We are getting to the business end of the season. A sudden bad run of results now will derail all the hard work of the previous eight months. Likewise, a well-timed run between now and May, like a 1500-metre runner sitting on the shoulder of his or her rival on the final bend before kicking on for the finishing line, can make all the difference. So which will it be for The Grecians?

Liverpool FC's Greatest Season Ever

If we talk about the league points, then 2018-19 can be called the greatest season Liverpool FC ever played. This was Liverpool's best season in the Premier League era and they were only beaten by one point by Manchester City. In this season Mohamed Salah scored the most goals (44 and 27 goals 2018 and 2019 respectively). The reasons why Liverpool FC could have the greatest season ever played by a football club are as follows:

Matt Taylor, who is the manager for Exeter City has called upon various professionals to see if it is possible to make some changes to the Elite Player Performance Plan. This ruling looks to be killing a lot of lower-level clubs. The main reason for this is because Academy Players are not actually protected until they reach the age of 16. At this point, they can then receive a full and professional contract. The Grecians have seen a lot of youngsters opt for bigger clubs after they leave the Academy but when they do, they receive absolutely no financial compensation.
