    Mere top 4 finish? I'd take that right now! What with how the Manchester clubs have strengthened, the players we've lost, Champions League football next season etc.. let's not forget the last 2 league winners have finished around mid table. Not saying that'll happen again, but Champions League qualification isn't guaranteed. Got to love the Premier League! :p

    Yeah, yeah, just like you were saying last year.

    You'll be right up there much as I'd like it to be otherwise. City probably favourites at the point I'd say, and the head says Chelsea the next closest challengers. Heart says Liverpool and if we get our signings we can be up there. Depending on how Spurs handle Wembley I'd have them from 2nd to 4th. Still not convinced Mourinho's not done, and Arsenal are losing Sanchez, but if they keep him a front three of him Lacazette and Ozil is as good as anything.

    Personally I expect the same top 4, maybe with a change of order.

    That's what's so great about the Premier League I suppose, you have no clue going into it each season. I agree about Tottenham and Wembley possibly having a drop, Liverpool looked good at stages last year but became inconsistent around mid season. If they do better with that I can see top 3, the Manchester clubs are pulling away a bit after a season where they probably let themselves down. Then Everton have splashed out and could challenge the top 4 for awhile.

    I'm quietly confident of top 4, but we have previous of totally collapsing. I'd take top 4 and a good first year back in Europe right now personally.

    Some La Liga fixtures have been announced. The first El Clasico will be on December 20 at Santiago Bernabeu while the second one will be very late in the season, on May 6 at Camp Nou.

    The upcoming season will be Atletico Madrid's first at Wanda Metropolitano, their new stadium which has the capacity of 68 thousand.

    Too much negativity here. We won't do that bad. Remember Matic did f'all last season. Yet we won the league. This year we've got an upgrade in bakayoko. Morata we'll have to see what he can do. I'm not going to judge him yet.

    F united, they're **** anyway. They've only signed lukaku. If they sign another decent player then Yh otherwise f them. Ain't worried about them.

    City are spending well but they do that every year.

    United signed Lindelof as well, but never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn.

    Yh but I meant decent players. Otherwise I would've included Rudiger as well but they're nothing special. He could turn out to be decent but you can say that about everyone.

    I'm just messing about.

    I'm in the middle of creating the thread for this season predictions and I am easily bugged. :p

    *Going to wait for a bit unless somebody makes it before me. A couple of signings here and there might swing some votes.

    Haha I love the confidence! Almost as much as the Man Utd bashing :p

    Hopefully you're right. I'm a little more wary as there are 6 teams, possibly 7 all fairly well matched and 3 of them will miss out. Bakayoko is injured and will miss the start of the season and preseason where the hard work is put in. Even if he does hit the ground running, which is no guarantee as he's still quite raw and England can take time to adapt to, we still only have Kante and himself for the midfield two. How we're going to cope a whole season with European football spread that thin, I just don't think it's possible.

    I definitely agree with you on Rudiger, it's a strange signing. With Ake, Christensen and Zouma in reserve, getting rid of two of them to sign him is strange. I could understand if it was for an elite CB like Bonucci, but I think all 3 youngsters have the potential to be better than Rudiger.

    Kyle Walker taking some stick about leaving a great defense and moving to a 091 formation. :D

    My crystal ball is showing some fascinating results about the upcoming season.

    I think it was an amazing piece of business from Tottenham, Walker was their second best right back over the second half of the season! Trippier was incredible.

    What's your crystal ball telling you?
