So many people write Arsenal off every season and yet we never fail to make the top 4 and no-one ever learns. I don't think Chelsea and Liverpool will be as strong as everyone thinks , both have lots of new first team players and will take time to gel. Chelsea although played superbly at the end of last season have not showed good league form under di matteo ,Liverpool have a completely new manager and will probably be trying to embrace a new style of play aswell. Can't see either of the two manchester teams finishing below 2nd though , i just feel that the other two spots are far more open than people think.

More foreign players = even less home grown talent getting a chance to blossom for the national team, feckin` criminal.

 

 

When will Msn do something about these sad lonely farts ads, or are they making too much money from them?

the winners will be crowned champions
runners up will come second
the team that scores most goals in the cup finals will win the competition

i am available to predict rugby and tennis too

I really hope RVP stays prolific and really produces the goods

Players like Berbatov and Torres haven't lived up to the bill as hoped and have played to a proven world class level at previous premier league clubs, so I just hope RVP produces the goods, not just as a man utd fan but as a football fan as well cso you wanna watch top quality football

My top of the premier league is
1 Man City
2 Chelsea
3 Man Utd
4 Arsenal
5 Newcastle
6 Everton
7 Liverpool
8 Spurs.
As a Newcastle fan, I would like 4 and 5 to be reversed, but i think Arsenal are just too experienced at grabbing the last Champions league qualifying spot. Man Utd look great upfront, but have injury problems at the back, and look a little lightweight in the middle of the park.
