    Mourinho will win the league this year
    Sadly I agree.

    1) United
    2) Chelsea
    3) City
    4) Arsenal
    5) Liverpool

    Leicester won't do anywhere near as good as last year and I doubt Spurs will be that good for two years in a row.

    You'll see, we'll be beating the likes of pep and jose this year. Don't underestimate the Arsenal.
    I'm not underestimating Arsenal, I'm underestimating the amount of **** coming out of your mouth.

    Hardly anyone is expecting him to win it in his first season, so its hardly a predication or a measure of failure that a manager won't win a title in their first season. No one is going to remember any of your posts end of the season let alone 2 years from now.
    Hardly anyone? Every single united fan I've seen post on the prediction thread does, as do most pundits who are part of the Mourinho love in...

    Chelsea are no way finishing 2nd. Top 3 will be between City UtD and Arsenal. I wouldn't even bet against Liverpool beating Chelsea for 4th.

    I completely agree but who can tell after last season. Personally think City will walk it followed by Arsenal or United. Right now I would go:

    City
    Arsenal
    United
    Chelsea
    Spurs
    Pool
    West Ham
    Soton

    I wouldn't underestimate Chelsea tbh - Conte is a great manager. Let's not forget they don't have Europe on their fixture list either.
    I'm just unsure as to how well City will gel and think they'll struggle.

    Liverpool are too unpredictable - this will be Klopp's first full season in charge (bearing in mind he got us to 2 cup finals last time around) and we seem to have a much more settled side now. However I worry that we simply can't compete with the sheer player quality of Chelsea/Arsenal/City/United

    We'll get 3rd/ 4th tbh

    We'll beat a big European team (cheeky 1-0 home win over Real), but ultimately go out in the R016.
    We'll go on an extended cup run, but fall to one of those upper mid table sides in the QFs in an away defeat, with a weakened squad.
    Wenger will criticise other clubs for their spending.
    It will look like top 4 is under threat, and we'll finish the season in title-winning form with 5 consecutive wins to safely secure champions league football for another season.
    Gazidis will turn to Wenger:

    I can count 3, one who's account is pretty much a parody, trapking, and sr90 who will be calling for Jose's head in couple of hours. That is against 2 who aren't and myself. I also didn't use the requirement of being a United fan, which obviously is going to lead to optimism ahead of realism. Outside of TSR my feeling seems to be people favouring City, they were last time I checking leading the bookmakers odds too.

    Doubt Conte will hit the ground running, as good as a manager he may be. He'll still need to adapt to the league and work around his squad. May get top 4 but think they'll find their form too late to put a real title challenge in anyway. Klopp pretty much had the majority of last season so nothing short of top 4 can be expected really.

    He might struggle but so could Pep and Mourinho. In addition, he's managed a defensive Italian team and Chelsea do have some decent defensive options so it might not be too hard for him to get a set-up that works.
    No Europe is a serious difference though; they'll surely make top 3.

    Klopp is a fantastic manager and we tend to actually do better in games we aren't expected to win, but I just don't think we have the consistency or general player quality to be expected to finish in the top 4. Not unless one of the big teams has an absolutely terrible start like Chelsea last season.

    We could surprise people though. I guess Rodgers got us 2nd place pretty much out of nowhere and obviously Leicester won the bloody league last season. Every year somebody surprises, let's just hope it's us this time.

    Just one of the best performances I have ever seen against us. That Barca team was just too good.
