Season so far?

Who do you think has played the best this season (team wise), best player so far, how do you feel your team doing in Barclays Premier League and what is you overall opinion on this season?

In general played pretty badly but we're only 2 points off 1st. New CB, DM and ST then we're sorted

More to add,

Aaron Ramsey has definetly been the best this year, scoring, assisting, defending + passes leading to goals. He's got his confidence back, and he looks unstoppable at present. Form is temporary, class is permanent.

Cardiff City aren't doing too bad, but at present don't look creative and that needs to be addressed in the January transfer window.

The season has been good, top teams dropping points, smaller teams getting points, I say this every season but this could be the best season yet lol, only because Sir Alex Ferguson has gone and Manchester United don't look like a team that can win while playing badly every game like they used to, now they play bad and can't get points, they have definetly lost the fear factor now.

I'm going to say Arsenal as well, excellent all season. Manchester City are absolutely perfect at home, but at times can be terrible sometimes.

Other honourable mentions who are close up to the top are,

In order,
• Everton
• Newcastle United
• Southampton
• Hull (Tigers) City Tigers, lol.

Don't really see how anyone could say anyone other than Arsenal for best team, been playing amazing football and the league proves it, even though Ramseys been amazing though I still think Suarez has been the best player this season, and will most likely end up top scorer (annoyingly)

Well the best team for me are the ones at the top of the table. Arsenal though I don't like this sort of thing until everybody has played everybody, they have city and chelsea next so that could change.

Player for me is suarez I feel though ramsey is paying well he's being a bit overhyped because of how bad he's been last couple of years.

United have been terrible, all that needs to be said.

Guess the seasons been exciting but struggling to enjoy it at the minute!

Best team: Everton I say. Managed to compete again despite little funding and losing one of their star players in Fellaini. Best defensive record in the league, made some decent signings in McCarthy, Lukaku and Deulofeu, Ross Barkley is at the height of his form and plenty of attacking football. If for a few unfortunate draws they would be at least 2nd in the league. Best player: Aaron Ramsay by a country mile. Norwich: unconvincing certainly after the intent of the summer signings. Away form has been poor yet again which has let to some heavy defeats and the recent injury list could spell trouble in the coming months. Overall opinion: Brilliant. Bar Norwich's patchy form, it has been a thoroughly enjoyable season so far. All the teams are being competitive and it's very tight both at the top and bottom of the league. One of the most exciting seasons for a while.

May I add a category? Best manager: Mauricio Pochettino. Has silenced many of the doubters with a string of impressive results, got Southampton playing attractive football with 3 players now in the England set up and continued on Adkins legacy of introducing young players into the first team squad. All of this and he can speak little or maybe even no English!

I don't think you can argue with Arsenal playing the best football so far this season. Manchester City have been amazing in places but inconsistent and Southampton have played some good football but no-one comes close to Arsenal. Aaron Ramsey and Luis Suarez have been the standout players but James Ward-Prowse deserves some credit too. Liverpool are doing better than expected but need consistency in order to stay there and the defense needs to improve massively.
