Completely agree. It was the same in 2003; when Man U won their last title, nobody gave a monkeys. It was the struggle to stay up between West Ham and others that captured everyone's interest.
The problem with moneyed teams like Chelsea and Man U is not necessarily just that clubs are getting too big in themselves and too interested in setting their finances above the considerations of their fans and their sport. It's also that the league just isn't competitive anymore because of that - so for clubs like Palace and Norwich, beating relegation is like racing for the title!
