Don't think Man U this season. Most likely Chelsea or even (gulp) Arsenal. Man City to finish fourth and Leicester to table 15th or so.

Bournemouth, Boro & Sunderland to go down.

Newcastle to finish second, probably Derby/ Cardiff winners. Villa to get relegated :eek:

That's my prediction thus far!

Well, after Leicester were the big shocker last season I am predicting Sam Alladyce called up for England Job, Giggs to takeover and Sunderland to win the EPL!

Hmm, maybe not!

I think that Man U have gone through a transition and they have a great manager who will motivate them again. I can see West Ham becoming dominant in the transfer market with their free pass to riches given to them by this government re the stadium deal- I think it was a shockingly bad deal that West Ham must be over the moon about.
Allardyce leaving will really scupper Sunderland's chances of staying up and Bournemouth and Boro may not be able to keep up with the big boys.

Leicester was a fluke last year I think. They got off to a great start while all of the others kept losing too many games and that momentum kept them going.
The Toon will win the Championship with over 100 points :D

Wolves - Promoted! - Only if we can drag our players out of our local bars a bit earlier than Saturday Mornings :p
If that Chinese billionaire takes over this week then I can see some very heavy investment in players.
I recall that when I was a lad Wolves had the most spectacular ground in England besides Wembley.

I can see Giggsy taking over as Manager at his Salford City in order to shag all of the players wives :eek:

Agree with you that will be United season in England. They finally found coach like SAF. Mourinho will reborn Ferguson's tactics in Manchester games. And they have done great signs this transfer window. Mkhitaryan is right man they so needed. Creative player who can play very useful in any line of midfield.

I was probably a bit too early in posting my predictions because there is so much transfer activity to be done. But Newcastle United thumping the mighty Barbarians 6-0 suggests we will score 150 plus goals this season and smash the points record :D

Yeah, that 6-0 sent shockwaves through the footballing world. I expect Newcastle to be given a bye into the prem as a result, no need to actually play a game :eek:

I am a Gooner so I shall be rooting for Arsenal but we have done poorly at the transfer window so far. We only got Granit Xhaka whereas both Sanchez and Ozil are becoming incresingly unsettled. The 2 manchester clubs especially utd. have done great business but I do think it will be asking too much for them to emerge as champions after some horrifying seasons after the departure of SAF. I also do hope to see how Pep transforms Man City. Spurs also had a great season and they can do well when brimming with confidence. The same goes for Liverpool under Kop. Leicester is likely to be a spent force with the departure of Kante and possibly Mahrez. THe other PL clubs have heaps of money due to television rights and will strengthen considerably. None of them will be pushovers in the new season.

I agree about Leicester. A lot of "lesser" teams kept kicking the arses of the top teams and Leicester seem to have took advantage of that then just kept on going.
I can not help but keep thinking that West Ham have been given a huge advantage financially and Newcastle will struggle to stay in the Prem if they do go up due to the loss of funds going down.

No way Man Utd will win the title..Just because of that cocky Mourinho?
And an Ibrahimovic who I believe will not perform as well as in Ligue 1 in France.

People might laugh but I think Everton will have a very good season with Ronald Koeman and also I expect Arsenal to perform well.
If they don't it will be finally bye bye for Wenger I suppose.

From the Championship I think Aston Villa will return back to the Premiership right away.

Lower divisions I do not care although I follow Burton Albion, Southend United and Daggenham&Red.
For various reasons. ;);)

Arsenal like season 15/16 can shot a serie of wins, but to be the champions... they are to weak for that.
I'm sorry man, but there's the time to say good bye Arsen Wenger.
