    Lol Ipswich annoy me though for some reason, good team but love to bottle it. True about Norwich though lol, away days to Carrow road will be good to have back.
    Brentford will be a great away day. Pub on each corner of the ground. I fancy Norwich to slip up, purely because they've been in better form and I can see some sort of sod's law situation causing Ipswich to win after they barely managed to scrap into sixth place.

    Disagree! I think Brentford could really do one over on Boro, who will be surely affected by coming so close to automatic promotion. Boro's emphasis on loan players worries me, actually, and I can see Warburton wanting to sign out on a high at Griffin Park.
    It will definitely be close, and yeah, if Boro go up and lose their loan players, they're coming straight back down.

    Oh definitely they bottle it nearly as much as Derby. Still hoping they do over Norwich though.

    I like him.. he is just a wierd transfer. what was it, 29 year old for 12m?

    I think he would have given us a few good seasons actually.. but well, he got injured, and that allowed jenk + bellerin to progress to a point where they are putting in good games with some consistancy..

    I would be happy with those 2 as our team for next season.. Jenk has shown great consistancy this season, and bellerin is there if we need some more attacking flare etc.

    - and for me it just leaves debuchy in a bit of a weird place.. its not his fault, but just bad luck with injuries..
    Bellerin will go to Barca if he gets good and I like Jenk because he is grew up an Arsenal fan.

    Carrow Road/Portman Road are both decent away days, so I'll be happy with either of them. Watford's very easy for me to get to, but it's a ****hole and Vicarage Road might be my least favourite English ground bar Kenilworth Road.

    Ha, Kenilworth Road. Where the away supporters entrance is built into terrace housing. Only in Luton

    Horrendous place, man.

    I'd go for: Brentford, Boro, Ipswich, Norwich in that order in terms of preference. I wouldn't be unhappy if Norwich were to go up, though. It's not like last year when I really didn't want QPR to be successful. I quite like all four of the sides this year, namely because of how exciting they've all been!

    apart from that we are playing on a ruddy monday again, this weekend looks alright..

    Crystal palace vs united should be good.. 3 losses in a row for them, and now they have to go to a reasonably tough away game. I mean, palaces home form is not great, but they have shown that they thave the potential to cause upsets there.. beating city, liverpool, and spurs there.. that coupled with united having only won 5 away games all season (lowest of the top8) - could mean we could see an upset..

    Sunderland vs everton / newcastle vs west brom / lecister vs southampton / hull vs burnley.. all good relegation battle games..

    And then chelsea vs liverpool.. looks boring now, but if man untied even draw with crystal palace, then liverpool could go into this game knowing that top4 is back on, and with a win it would put them in a great place, considering united still have to play arsenal..

    Just don't like the ground itself. Not one of my favourite away days.

    The Premier League will never allow Brentford to play at Griffin Park with their terraces. They'd have to groundshare with Fulham or QPR.

    Only chance Loftus Road has of seeing PL action in the next few years I imagine/hope.

    Where do you guys expect to finish next season?
    We'll win the League next season or come very close.

    Certainly much better placed than the rest to challenge Chelsea. Our squad depth is actually superior to Chelsea's, actually substantially so, but obviously they're ahead in the XI. Interesting to see how we do in the Summer but all that's needed is an injection of 1 more world class player, which is what Wenger has hinted that he's looking to add, to be right up there. Also got Gabriel coming in now as well and I think he looks like a top CB tbh.

    Touch wood our appalling injury record seems to be a thing of the past now as well and that's worth a lot of points. Very hard to compete with Chelsea, who never have any injuries when we've had 3 or 4 key players out at least at any given time. Maybe next season they'll be without Terry or Hazard for 4 months and we'll see how good their squad is? Theyve been fortunate not to lose key players this season really.

    We've got over the big game hoodoo thing to an extent but we still need to be cuter. At Stamford Bridge next season, we should just take the 0-0 draw and move on for instance since that's what CFC are going to do at the Emirates anyway. We absolutely crucify the dross in the PL so just need to work on results vs ''good not great'' sides like Swansea to keep improving.

    People need to realise that Wenger is a very subtle team builder(unlike Mourinho he doesnt just whip the chequebook out or inherit world class players...). Over a 3 year cycle he'll get you to title quality. The 2011 side was the best in the League by a country mile but obviously was lacking character and bottled absolutely everything. But that side came together bit by bit and the players steadily improved and developed an understanding. Think we're coming towards fruition of Wenger's last cycle which is centred around top class performers like Koscielny, Ozil, Sanchez, Ramsey etc. Recent cup wins should help with the a bid too.

    Regarding your first line, I think it'd be unwise for anyone to comment on who will win the PL next season, until the transfer market is near closed.

    For me, that will decide who my money goes on. There are BIG deals expected by all, City are off loading to free up a load of cash, Chelsea getting linked with players like Griezmann and Koke, you know United will go big, just a matter of how quality the players bought are that remains to be seen. And of course Arsenal IMO are just a few signings away from having a XI that could go to the next level. Depends how flush Wenger feels I guess. Went pretty big last summer.

    As a fan of football, I hope to god it's more competitive next season than this year's horse****. Well done Mourinho, but christ it hasn't half been a boring run in for the PL. We could end up with a proper 4 horse title race next season. All depends on this window.

    In all honesty think Chelsea will win the league again.

    Our first team is fine as it is, it's just whether we have the quality to sustain a title win along with a CL run. I don't think we do which is why we change our style of play in the second half of the season to accommodate for the fact a lot of our rotations players(*cough* mikel Ramires Drogba *cough*) are not good enough.

    We did the same last season.

    you're definitely favourites but as you say I just think you're only an injury to Terry, Costa or Hazard away from a real slog for a few months.

    Surprised you havent called it for liverpool actually :laugh:

    Liverpool will win the title the year after. Young team, best young manager in world football and WC players like Henderson, Coutinho(the best player in the PL in 2015), Sakho and Sterling.
