    1. Chelsea
    2. Arsenal
    3. Manchester City
    4. Manchester United
    5. Liverpool
    6. Everton (sadly not higher than that)
    7. Tottenham Hotspur
    8. Newcastle
    9. Southampton (hopefully)
    10. Stoke City
    11. Swansea City
    12. Hull City

    Not looking good for the Midlands clubs based on everyone's predictions. That said, last year I tipped Sunderland to go down and they survived.

    I honestly think City will win it again. A lot of people are saying that Chelsea will win the league purely based on the signings that they've made this summer, but do City really need to make any major signings with the squad that they have? I don't think so.

    Diego Costa had a good season in the BBVA last season (much easier league than the Premier League) although when I've watched him in major games he's hardly scored or contributed at all (Champions League, World Cup)

    As for Fabregas, he's played in the league before so he knows what's what, but I don't think his style of play really suits Chelsea. Fabregas is good at slowing down play and holding the ball in midfield, whereas Chelsea generally play quick counter attacking football.
    La liga much easier than the prem you've got to be ****ing jokin son **** me

    Fabregas is good at slowing down play and holding the ball in midfield? What the **** does that even mean? His strengths are his passing, final ball, goal scoring from midfield, leadership ability and his ability to dictate the tempo of a game.

    Apparently they have nobody capable of a toure-esque season except maybe that Cesc fabregas bloke who's had a better season in the prem than the one toures just had

    My argument was that Chelsea wouldn't win the league because they've signed players who've played well in different leagues, but haven't played in the Premier League (other than Fabregas). Their signings could play awful in the Premier League (e.g. Soldado scored 30+ goals two seasons ago, moved to Spurs and turned to ****). City have a world class squad of players who have already proven themselves in the Premier League by winning the title twice in the last three seasons.
    Soldado clearly didn't fit Spurs system and doesn't have the physical attributes to fully succeed in this league. Soldado's goals relied on cutbacks from wingers while Spurs use inside forwards who like to cut in and shoot(Townsend and Chadli) or players who like to do the final through ball in the middle(Eriksen). So it's hard to make a system that suits Soldado for these two reasons.

    Filipe is a quality player, got decent pace and has a great cross on him. He plays in a defensive team such as Atlético so he'll have no problem adapting to Mourinho tactics.

    Costa is an unknown quantity yes but Fabregas is proven quality and fits a counter attacking system easily. Fab e.g. wasn't suited at Barca because he played more direct to the way Xavi and co play. So when they got the best out of Fabregas Barcelona starting playing more direct football.

    Also Fabregas' goal return is pretty good. Probably better than Toure's since Toure takes all the set pieces within a decent range and the pens. If we gave Fab pen and free kick duty he'd get what Toure got last season personally.

    Worth remembering that Aston Villa play eight of last season's top ten in their first ten games.

    Lambert first to be sacked, anybody?

    Can they afford to sack him? :holmes:

    Someone pointed out that Villa actually didn't do too badly against the top sides last season. They beat Chelsea & Manchester City, beat Arsenal at their ground and drew with Liverpool at Anfield when they were blowing teams away. Funnily enough it was those results that kept them up!

    If LVG insists on playing a back 3 with Jones and Smalling in it then Utd won't make the top 10.

    - Man City will snatch the title again with another tight finish
    - Chelsea and Arsenal will push for the title all season
    - Hopefully Everton will crack that top four
    - Man Utd will take time to clear up last season's mess
    - Can see Liverpool having a hang-over season
    - Tottenham will be mediocre all season
    - Newcastle will do well if they keep out of trouble (headbutts, boycotts...)
    - Hull will surprise this season. They've got a cracking depthy squad with fantastic new signings
    - Hughes and Poyet will ensure Stoke and Sunderland finish well above the drop zone
    - Pulis doesn't do relegation so Palace are safe
    - Southampton and Swansea both need time to rebuild
    - I reckon Leicester will be boring and just stay safe all season
    - Aston Villa and West Ham will flirt with relegation all season
    - QPR will go down on the final day with big-spending Harry
    - Burnley and West Brom are gonna struggle from game 1.

    Chelsea will win the Premier League title. Why? 1) They should have won it last season and would have done had they not lost silly games at places like Villa Park, Selhurst Park. 2) The pressure is very much on Mourinho after a trophy less season last year, and 3) They've bought very very well. Diego Costa was second best striker in Europe last season (behind Suarez), and Fabregas is a sheer genius signing. Felipe Luis one of the top full backs in world football. They'll win it.

    Manchester City will be second. Incredibly spine to the team, haven't bought as well as Chelsea, but perhaps didn't need to. Looked poor against Arsenal in the CS but that was missing a lot of players. Will again be dominant at the Etihad, second place and probably a cup.

    Arsenal will finish third. Sanchez will be a great signing, and players like Debuchy and Chambers will fit nicely in. FA Cup win in 2014 was a turning point, we'll see Arsenal winning trophies more often now, but I think a cup win is more likely this season. They'll need to sort out form in the big games to go any higher, drawing at home to City/Chelsea and losing badly at City/Chelsea/Liverpool is really poor. Even United took four points off them last season. Play the best football, but third this season.

    Manchester United will finish fourth. Much to my annoyance the hierarchy at the club will accept this after the disaster that was David Moyes. Van Gaal alone will be worth at least another 10-15, maybe even more points simply because of his stature, his arrogance and his ability to get the best out of a squad significantly worse than Chelsea and City's. United for the second season in a row have bought poorly. There was talk by some of 7 or 8 signings, but signing an unproven 19-year-old and a player in Herrera that nobody else was after and who is considerably worse than Fabregas despite only being a few million less is not what United needed considering signings rival clubs were making. Manchester United this Summer needed to make a huge statement: bang, bang, bang, Vidal, Hummels, Di Maria. Something like that would have been good enough to possibly win the league, but for the biggest club in Britain, they have, for a long time, been very poor in the transfer market. They haven't been able to sign the most sought after European players at their peaks since Veron, and that was in 2001. Hugely frustrating time for a club that two years ago wouldn't have settled for anything less than first.

    Liverpool fifth. Bought really poorly for me. Squad fillers rather than top players. When you let the top striker in the world go, you really need a good replacement. They needed someone like Falcao, Lewandowski, Costa or Cavani to replace Suarez. Lambert isn't good enough. Elsewhere Lallana is a good player but isn't going to win you the league, Lovren is solid but they'll struggle without another striker with Sturridge and with CL football.

    Everton sixth, absolute best they are ever going to do last season, will struggle to hit the heights.

    Tottenham seventh, again, just not consistent enough to get as many wins as Arsenal do.

    As with all my posts, quote me when I'm wrong.
