The English top flight has seen unbelievable goals, goal celebrations and crazy antics on the pitch which have gone to the extent of fanboys and ballboys getting bullied or even physically assaulted.
The following slideshow includes 5 of these incidents from the Premier League which will be talked about for a long time.
#5 Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer fight
Ex Newcastle United teammates Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer were sent off during the match as they started trading blows at each other. This was one of the most bizarre incidents which happened on the football pitch. Newcastle were 3-0 down to Aston Villa at St James Park when Bowyer and Dyer started throwing punches at each other.
Newcastle were already 10 men before they were reduced to 8 men as Steven Taylor was sent off for deliberately handling the ball to save the goal.
Dyer told Chronicle they traded blows after he told his team-mate 'he was 's***'.
"He was like ‘give me the ball’ and I was like ‘I haven't given the ball away, what you talking about’," the former England international said. Five minutes later he came again and I gave it to somebody else."
