2009-2010 Premier League Table Predictions

chelsea community shield 2009 2010 Premier League Table Predictions

It’s that time of the year for you, the readers, and me to post the predictions for the final table of the 2009-2010 Premier League season before a ball has been kicked.

In some ways, I hope that the predictions are completely wrong. At least then we can say that the Premier League is unpredictable. But somehow I have a feeling that the top four will finish similarly to how they did last season when I predicted Manchester United would win the title.

Except this season I’m predicting a new Premier League title winner.

Drumroll, please. Here’s my prediction for the final 2009/2010 Premier League table:

  1. Chelsea
  2. Manchester United
  3. Liverpool
  4. Arsenal
  5. Everton
  6. Tottenham Hotspur
  7. Aston Villa
  8. Manchester City
  9. Fulham
  10. Wigan Athletic
  11. West Ham United
  12. Sunderland
  13. Blackburn Rovers
  14. Bolton Wanderers
  15. Stoke City
  16. Birmingham City
  17. Burnley
    —————————————
  18. Wolverhampton Wanderers
  19. Hull City
  20. Portsmouth

I really feel that Chelsea have a lot to prove this season and that this season will be their year. It’s a combination of things. Didier Drogba looks like a man reborn. There’s a renewed sense of optimism throughout the team under the tutelage of Carlo Ancelotti. And the club has been buoyed by the addition of Yuri Zhirkov, the gifted left winger. Bottom line, this is a Chelsea side desperate to win the title again and based on how they’ve been playing this summer, I believe they can do it.

Elsewhere in the table, I don’t see many meteoric rises or falls. Manchester City will suffer from its inconsistency despite having a forward line that most Premier League chairmen would dream about.

At the bottom of the table, unless miracles happen, Portsmouth are going to have a very difficult time both on and off the pitch. The psychological impact of losing several first-team players in the summer will take months to repair. The battle at the bottom of the table is going to be more heated than usual this season. Other than Portsmouth, I see Wolves and Hull City dropping back to the Championship. It’s going to be an almost impossible task to overturn Hull City’s disastrous run of form, while Wolves will have a tough time scoring goals despite the addition of Kevin Doyle from Reading.

    promoted for 2010-2011: Sheffield United (champion), West Brom (2nd), QPR (playoff)

    *will flip-flop Liverpool and Chelsea if Liverpool picks up one more quality forward player before the close of the summer transfer window (assuming Chelsea makes no other moves)

    **will flip-flop Arsenal and Everton if Celtic knock Arsenal out of the UCL.

    • Tim says:

      I do like your sheff utd and west brom predictions – those are mine too. But QPR… really? qpr have done little this summer to suggest much improvement on recent performances, and there are now far more quality teams hovering around fighting for playoff spots. Speaking as more of a Championship follower thahn a Premiership one, I d predict 8th or 9th. I fancy Middlesborough or Ipswich to win the playoffs.

  3. Camden Town Rob says:

    Adam Childress,

    Wanky Yanky, stick to American Football, because you know shite all about the real sport.

    • Raatzie says:

      Possibly sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong, but is that entirely necessary? Just having fun with the picks, right?

      • Camden Town Rob says:

        Just a bit disillusioned by the entire football punditry declaring Arsenal defunct. I don’t need to hear it from some wank. I guarantee Arsenal finish within the top 3.

        • Raatzie says:

          I hope so. As I’ve posted on here many times before, Arsenal came in a close second in the “who will Raatzie follow” derby of autumn 2006. I enjoy them and hope they do well. I fear otherwise.

          If it helps, I’m a pessimist. As a rule, I underestimate the teams I like and overestimate those I don’t. So maybe Arsenal actually finish second while Man. U. drop out of the top four. :)

          Man can dream.

        • could it be youve been sipping the coolaid? Have you guys replaced the starters you got rid of? I do hope however that you get beat by Tottenham twice.

          • Camden Town Rob says:

            Ok, mate.
            You’ve been following Football for a year, bravo… What now your the new Phil Thompson? Laughable to say the least.
            1.) For the past 3 years Toure has been a shell of the man he waw.
            2.) Theo/Bendtner/Arshavin/Vela/Eduardo/Robin/ Tomas/ Wilshire; Adebay-who?

            Haha mate I should be asking the same question to you Liverpuds. Just try replacing Xabi with Lucas Leiva… See where that gets you..

        • Mystic Meg says:

          HAHA pure delutionist in denial or what! Having a go at some lad because his opinion differed to his, called him delutional, AND THEN had the nerve to claim that, by some god given tallent, he can GARENTEE that Arsenal will finish in the top 3! haha. Your the delutional 1 mate, dry those tears and pack it in going in a huff if someone doesn’t agree that your club will finish top 4, you boring sod!

          • Camden Town Rob says:

            Don’t believe I ‘GARENTEE’ anything. Think about this you pathetic ninny, his football knowledge is comparable to your grammar. It’s not me having a go at a different opinion, its me having a go at someone who knows nothing about football (sorry he has been watching for a woooooping year). Now go back to your council house.

          • Camden,

            I have watched American Football my whole life, but if you sat down and watched every game, every week, for a year, I would have to say you learned a thing or two, and one benefit I have and that you would have in my scenario is that your judgment would not be clouded by your love of team and teams histories, however since I am at work I can not tell you why I made the picks I did but will do so when I get home this evening.

          • Mystic Meg says:

            It’s a football website you stuck up muppet, why would I give a toss about my grammer? I’m not writing my CV!

            And I could say the exact same for you, you clearly know nowt about football yourself if you claim that you “guarantee Arsenal finish within the top 3″. It is a possibility, but it is more likely that the top 3 will remain unchainged.

            And cheers for the ‘council’ house comment mate, as judjing by my post you can clearly tell that I live in a shanty hut, have 12 kids, am on the dole and rob the population on an ocational basis… Typical fairyboy from ‘darn sarf’, grow a pair of testicles and stop whinging on when someone has the gall to put your club down.

    • Dave says:

      Don’t you know Raatzie, this wouldn’t be an official thread without a US supporter of English football being insulted for not knowing enough/being American/not supporting their local club? Sort of par for the course.

      • Camden Town Rob says:

        Actually, it really had piss all to do with his nationality (that only served to confirm his predictions). His table is absolutely atrocious…

        • I cant help it Arsenal has not done enough to cope with their losses, so far as I can see. Now they may stay top 4 its just a prediction, Evrton has coninued to be top5-6 and would like to see them make that leap while Man City has spent alot I am not sure they will get there return. However as I said it is a prediction and I stand by it and we will see come the end of the season where it stands.

      • Raatzie says:

        Let me just speak for myself here.

        This will be my fourth year following European (mostly English) football.

        I have far less knowledge of this sports than I do about the four (well, 3 1/2) major American pro sports.

        But I enjoy it far more than baseball, basketball, and hockey, and at a level equal to my enjoyment of American football (go Iggles).

        Nothing better than the Sunday Prem doubleheader followed by the NFL tripleheader.

        I know far less about European football than just about everyone on this board.

        So feel free to educate me, and to correct me when you think a point that I’ve made is based upon faulty reasoning or understanding. I want to learn.

        Insults do nothing but piss people off.

        I think the newbie Americans on here would agree.

        And the Americans who’ve followed for far longer than I, well, my guess is they’re as knowledgeable as anyone.

    • scazza says:

      Camden Town Rob,

      You utter moron. Everyone can have their own view – what you said was simply racist. ~Twat.

      • Camden Town Rob says:

        Right, I’m an utter moron?? Hahah mate you must be daft, your the one who thinks AMERICA IS A RACE!!! Wow…. Pot calling the kettle black?

        • WylieC says:

          I’m just checking out this board to see some old predictions and how they turned out. Anyway, I started reading the comments, and Camden Town Rob, you are being ridiculous. Don’t start insulting someone because they had a go at a fun prediction and had a different opinion to you. You give us British football fans a bad name that we are desperately trying to get rid of.

          I am a football and American Football fan, and the Americans treat me well and teach me when I have questions about the game. You seem to just call them names. Which, by the way, are racist, attacking someone on the basis of nationality is racism. The endlessly useful Wikipedia states “Racial discrimination typically points out taxonomic differences between different groups of people, although anyone may be discriminated against on an ethnic or cultural basis, independently of their somatic differences.” Hope that clears it up for you.

          Also, he predicted who would win the league and two of the relegation sides, not bad at all IMO.

    • Camden Town Rob says:

      I think Spurs have a chance to crack the top 6, Modric is class (so hard to admit though).

    • I agree Tottenham may be better, but they love to play great sometimes and garbage the others, not even their most ardent supporters understand the way the team swings so easily between good and bad.

  5. I do admit however that this is only my second year foray into Football, prior to 2008 I thought it was a sh:t sport because I had never seen it. I did however watch damn near every game last season as I have every football package I could get on my satellite tv package.

  6. Dave says:

    Could be my American vision, but it doesn’t seem that his table is too extraordinary. Besides not placing Arsenal in the top 3, as you guarantee, what exactly did he do wrong?

  7. DaveMo says:

    Gaffer, Don’t strain your arm patting yourself on the back for predicting United’s title last season. After all, they had just won their 2nd running, had lost no players, and looked about to sign Dimitar Berbatov. As we know well, there are battles up and down the table – we wouldn’t deem the whole league “predictable” on the basis of just the one correctly-guessed outcome. For example, you had Liverpool finishing in 5th, and Spurs cracking the top four – both considerably off the mark, I’d say. You had Fulham suffering “another agonizing and depressing season near the lower depths”. You had all three newly-promoted teams getting relegated, which turned out only 33% “predictable”.

    I’d say that many of your readers only look past predictions for the top four and the relegated sides to see where you have their favorite club fitting in. On that unscientific basis, I would rate your 2008/2009 season predictions a C+.

    Note that I’m not brave enough to even put in my own table for criticism. I just take issue with you characterizing the whole league as predictable.

    • The Gaffer says:

      Dave, I didn’t mean that the league is predictable just because I correctly predicted who would win the title last season. As we all know, the results from the past few seasons as well as who’ll end up in the top four have been very predictable. There are relatively few surprises in terms of results in the Premier League these days, which is why I’m hoping for a much more unpredictable season this year.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  9. TC says:

    Looks like Chris is the only one so far who thinks Man City’s spending spree will get them into the top four, jumping Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Villa, and Spurs. I don’t see it.

  10. TC says:

    And all but Chris have Burnley staying up. I’d love to see it but I saw them draw USL-1 (USA second division) Portland Timbers 2-2 last month (OK, Clarets won in PKs). Portland played mostly second stringers and was still a match for Burnley. Yes, yes, it’s pre-season but I wanted to be impressed and wasn’t.

    • peter hurt says:

      This is the league table i agree with most,although i would swap fulham and villa.Don’t think the top 4 will be broken up this term.I also think spurs are building a decent squad.2 good players in every position(except left back).More than capable of beating any team on their day.Spurs’ biggest problem will be,as always, consistency.Can they do it week in week out?Maybe Harry has finally sorted that out???…..
      I also think Hull will finish bottom,BIG TIME!!They will probably skip the championship going down and go straight into league 1!!!
      I think season 2010/11 will be more interesting but,that said,a week in football is a long time so 12 months???anything can happen………
      Also,my tip for first manager fired…Mr Hughes sadly

    I hate admitting that I think chelski will win the league, but they looked solid in their pre-season, and the win against manure only confirmed my fears.

    by the way, I’m a yank, and follow world class football, which does NOT include MLS. I’ll suffer through a match, but my season starts in the fall, not summer.

    God you guys suck at predictions I’m eager to know what you predicted these last 3 years.

    When the strong get even stronger its not even really a question of who is going to come out on top.

    All the idiots will be eating crow like the past few years.

    • Dave says:

      I assume you’re talking about United? No point in insulting people if you mask your opinion in smoke and mirrors, and it’s debatable if the strong actually got stronger.

    *I reserve the right to switch these two dependent on whether Citeh can pry Lescott from Moyes’ grip.

    As far as the “Theo/Bendtner/Arshavin/Vela/Eduardo/Robin/Tomas/ Wilshire” is concerned, the only consistent scorer in that lot is RVP. I’ll give you Arshavin as well since he impressed once he arrived, but to say that Walcott, Bendtner, Vela, Rosicky (injured), Eduardo, and Wilshire are going to have a huge impact is preposterous.

    • Camden Town Rob says:

      You’ll give me Arshavin. You must be taking the piss?… Show me a forward in the league that had the proportional goal scoring/ play making that Shava showed last year?

      And secondly I never said anything about them having a ‘huge impact’, what you took completely out of context was a conversation I was having about loosing Ade. In which all I stated was that we still have a well rounded striking force ( easily top 4 in the league).

      • Gary says:

        “Show me a forward in the league that had the proportional goal scoring/ play making that Shava showed last year? ”

        I’ll go with goal scoring as “play making” isn’t something easily measured.

        Fernando Torres: Played 1729 minutes – Scored 14 goals = 1 goal/123.5 min
        Andrei Arshavin: Played 993 minutes – Scored 6 goals = 1 goal/165.5 min

        I would go so far as to say that even with your “play making” metric, Torres measures favourably with anyone else in the league.

        Eduardo, Vela, Walcott, Bendtner, Rosicky, and Wilshere aren’t proven goal scorers so to say that they are a “well rounded striking force” is the height of “taking the piss”. I mean, even Silvestre scored the same number of league goals as Walcott and had done it in less time.

        • Camden Town Rob says:

          Torres measures extremely favorably with Arshavin, which proves Shava is amongst the best in the league.. Look at Shava’s assists/goal ratio, its untouchable. Hence you saying you’ll ‘give me Arshavin’ is taking the piss. I love how you scan over what I write and use my words out of context….

          Eduardo’s not a proven goal scorer? Are you kidding me?

          Rosicky (barring injuries) isn’t a proven goal scorer? Wrong again…

          Wilshire (obviously is only 17), England’s budding jewel and will prove himself before he hits 20.

          Theo (although young) I’d say scoring a hatty against Croatia in Zagreb is proof of his goal scoring ability. Did you also happen to forget he was out for Almost 7 months??? Takes a little time to get back in the thick of things right, I mean your the professor when it comes to ‘proven goal scorers’ you should know this..

          What do you consider a ‘proven goal scorer’, tell me is Kuyt a proven goal scorer? Is Benayoun a ‘proven goal scorer?? Because if they are, then so is Bendtner…

          Tell me again, how does Arsenal not have a well rounded striking force compared to the league??

          • Gary says:

            Eduardo: 17 league app — 4 goals
            Rosicky: 44 league app — 9 goals
            Wilshire: unproven in the league so saying he will prove himself is a guess at best. He could be a donkey just like Sheva.
            Walcott: 63 league app — 6 goals
            Also, one good match against Croatia doesn’t mean shite. Sheva has scored more goals in less matches for Chelsea but doesn’t mean that most Chelsea fans think he should be part of their starting XI.

            Fact of the matter is that you are talking utter bollocks. First you guarantee Arsenal will finish top three, then you have a go at someone for grammar but you don’t seem to know the difference between “losing” and “loosing”, and finally you take offense because I called you out on your “well rounded” Arsenal striking force (even though Van Persie and Arshavin are the only ones worth mentioning).

            Why don’t you stick to watching netball because you know f*ck all about football!

          • Camden Town Rob says:

            lol your a puff. Firstly ever hear of INTERNATIONAL PLAY?
            You seem to never properly answer my question, SHOW ME HOW ARSENAL DOES NOT HAVE A WELL ROUNDED STRIKE FORCE COMPARED TO THE LEAGUE (and throw Nasri in there for good measure). Lol you constantly skirt around this issue by showing me how they are not ‘proven strikers’ by your legendary standards. One does this honestly have anything to do with being well rounded? Did I ever once say that they have immaculate league goal ratios? No, all I said was they have a well rounded strike force!! So once again, please take your head out of your Gary and show me how they do not have a WELL ROUNDED STRIKE FORCE COMPARED TO THE REST OF THE LEAGUE. Proper GARY hahaha.

          • Gary says:

            Firstly, since you like to slate people for their grammar, it’s “you’re a poof” not “your a poof”.

            Secondly, you think playing against the likes of the Faroe Islands and Andorra is the same as Chelsea, Liverpool, or Man United?! Hell, I’d even throw Burnley in there! Performance in international football doesn’t equate to performance in league football (especially the Premier League). Just ask Big Phil Scolari you muppet!

            Thirdly, what the f*ck is the purpose of a “strike force” then if it isn’t scoring goals?!?! Arsenal scored 68 goals in the league last year of which just more than half (37) were scored by your “well rounded strike force”. You discount the effect the loss of Adebayor will have and place to high a value on unproven (Walcott) and inexperienced (Wilshire) players. If Van Persie or Arshavin get hurt for any length of time this season, Arsenal is f*cked.

            Finally, to be honest, I actually like the way Arsenal play and am envious of the way they are able to bring players up into the first team from the academy. I do think Wilshire (and Ramsey for that matter) will be good players in the years to come but I think this year is going to be very difficult for Arsenal with the loss of Adebayor.

          • Camden Rob says:

            Ok Gary, again with your entire dribble you have failed to answer my question. First off I’d like to think that coaching is a bit different then playing in the field so I think I’ll pass on asking big Phil any questions regarding strikers. And unlike you, I take into consideration WORLD CUP performances as well as scoring against Italy and other proven top 10 international sides.
            All I said Mr. Glitter was to please SHOW ME HOW ARSENAL DOES NOT HAVE A WELL ROUNDED STRIKE FORCE COMPARED TO THE LEAGUE and you have yet to given any indication of answering this question. What you have done is to tell me how our 3-6 options are not ‘proven goal scorers’ which honestly has nothing to do with being well rounded in the least. What I would like you to do is show me any team in the league whose 3rd through 6th option strikers are up to your GARY GLITTER STANDARD PROVEN GOAL SCORING, because that all you seem to want to address.
            And I honestly don’t care about grammar what you’ve taken out of context for the 1,000,000 time is me talking to someone else ( who like you) miss understood the meaning of a word I was using (ie. Well-rounded; and disillusioned for her).

            How does World Cup performances have anything to do with performances in the League? If Walcott scores three against Croatia, does that have any affect on Arsenal’s League standing? And do you really want to compare Arsenal’s forwards/midfielders international performances with that of Man Utd, Chelsea, or Liverpool?

            Why don’t you do us all a favour and give your definition of “well-rounded strike force” because I would imagine that everyone else here would take that at “propensity to score goals”. If not, then what’s the point?

            As far as other clubs, I would put up Chelsea and Liverpool’s strike force (and now Man City’s) against Arsenal’s every day of the week.

            And enough with the name-calling. Believe it or not, it doesn’t make you sound any smarter and is normally the last resort of someone who realizes his argument is lost.

            Mate, this is all I said..

            Not that I like arguing at all ( I work in the tax chamber), but don it’ just prove you lost this pathetic argument?

            Well rounded doesn’t mean you have 6 El Ninos running about the pitch. What it means is you have sufficient depth, talent and aptitude. I did not by any means mean that every striker on our bench has a 1:1 goal ratio. What I mean is that we have the depth and sustainability to compete in the top 4. I’m not mad, I don’t think Arsenal will win any major silverware, but what I do think is that the people writing them off to 6th place or worse are generally people who would never dare to come back here after this seasons said and done.

    There’s still 3 weeks of transfers still to (possibly) come, which could shake things up a lot. Nevertheless, from someone who knows next to nothing:

    I think the talk of Portsmouth’s demise are way overstated. if not by the end of August, in January they will have the cash to strengthen the team. Hull look horrible, but if they start off shite I can see them sacking Phil “the tanning booth looked good” Brown, and if they get the right manager, could make a run out of the bottom.

    At the top, I don’t know how United don’t get a lot worse with Ronaldo gone as well as a lot of questions on defense (keeper primarily). I think Torres and Gerrard stay healthy all year and win the league, and Arsenal are resurgent as well. (I see the letting go of Adebayor as more addition by subtraction.)

    I can guarantee two things about the predictions for the 2009/2010 season —

    (1) There’ll be people coming on here in September and October ridiculing readers (and me) for incorrectly predicting where teams would end up. However, the season is still early, so let’s hold off on criticizing me and fellow readers until the season is over (perfect example is Hull City and their miraculous start to the 2008-2009 season), and

    (2) There’ll be people posting their predictions for the 2009/2010 season in December or January — when half of the season is over — which is unfair to those of us who posted our predictions in August before a ball was kicked!

    For those picking Liverpool to win…

    1.) They have lost one of their few, few “superstar” players in Alonso. This now means that Gerrard, Torres, Benayoun and Aquilani will have to be even better.
    2.) They have never won the league so why would an off-season of selling one of their best players result in a win over Chelsea (much more settled, better talent, smarter manager) or Man Utd (have actually won a thing called the “Premier League”)?

    • Eladio says:

      “Past results are not indicative of future performance.”

    • Ellis Carver says:

      While it is true that one of our best players has left, the fact that Gerrard and Torres only played together 14 times last season, and the Reds still finished 2nd. If Lucas Leiva, who has looked very strong in preseason, and if Glen Johnson can add another attacking element, there no reason why Liverpool can’t be strong title contenders.

      I don’t think they’ll do it (as my predictions belied above), but they have the personnel to do it.

      • Ellis Carver says:

        “If Lucas Leiva…”

        I meant to say if he improves and him and Aquilani do well to complement Gerrard in central midfield….

    It’s a football website you stuck up muppet, why would I give a toss about my grammer? I’m not writing my CV!

    And I could say the exact same for you, you clearly know nowt about football yourself if you claim that you “guarantee Arsenal finish within the top 3?. It is a possibility, but it is more likely that the top 3 will remain unchainged.

    And cheers for the ‘council’ house comment mate, as judjing by my post you can clearly tell that I live in a shanty hut, have 12 kids, am on the dole and rob the population on an ocational basis… Typical fairyboy from ‘darn sarf’, grow a pair of testicles and stop whinging on when someone has the gall to put your club down.

We don’t realy believe Alan Shearer and Kevin Keegan are the spawn of Jesus, and we don’t believe any other daft misconseption created by press. We will however more than likely still get more fans through the gate, aswell as more traveling fans to away games than who-ever you support (providing you aren’t a glory hunter), despite the fact the club we support is shit, and pittifully looks like not getting any better, any time soon.

  28. ossie's dream says:

    Quite a few arguments brewing here over what is essentially a meaningless list!

    I cannot be arsed to predict the full 20…and predictions are a mug’s game anyway. But, FWIW, here are my comments surrounding the key battles:

    Winner: Liverpool or Chelsea. Never underestimate Utd., but I don’t think they have a 4th title on the bounce in them. Not after losing Ronaldo and Tevez. Rooney may flourish now he can come in from the left, but I have a suspicion Berbatov will continue to disappoint. A lot rests on Valencia and Nani’s shoulders. I cannot call it between Liverpool and Chelsea.

    Arsenal won’t even be close. I am not convinced Man City will usurp their Champs League spot, but the Gooners won’t be convincing title contenders. Their strange transfer policy means they will continue to stand still.

    Citeh are good for a Europa spot. It’ll take them a while to gel and it will be a huge test for Mark Hughes. He has to be one of the favorites for the sack race. A lot of pressure on him to deliver!

    I like the look of Fulham under Hodgson but fear the Europa will demand too much of their thin squad. I don’t think they’ll reach such a high position this season.

    Everton, Villa and Spurs are all interchangeable and will battle it out with Citeh for the Europa spots. I think Spurs, under Harry’s steady stewardship, will improve on last year’s 8th, but I am a Spurs fan so take that with a grain of salt.

    Going down? Tough one, it can be any of Pompey, Wolves, Hull, Burnley or Brum. Megson will keep Bolton up (again). Even Wigan may struggle without Bruce’s stewardship. Phil Brown is something of an enigma – highly rated in football circles, smashing start to last season, but something went terribly wrong halfway through. Like last season, I think the bottom teams will try outmatch each other over who can play the worst.

  29. Ok so people didn like what I had listed before. Thats fine. My list below is only slightly different. I posted while at work and did the best I could for trying to fire it off. Along with the team I have put my reasoning.

    Mine is…..
    Liverpool (Torres-Gerrard- as long as they stay healthy their the best.)
    Manchester United- (lost to much in the transfer window)
    Arsenal (not an ass kiss pick, but in my haste I forgot Arshavin and what I think he can do)
    Manchester City (Could be Chelsea but Man City is a real wild card)
    Chelsea (their squad is just to old)
    Everton
    Aston Villa
    Fulham
    Tottenham (Keane needs to really ste it up this season)
    West Ham
    Wolverhampton(my team, good squad, good manager- if they beat the hammers opening day you can swap my picks)
    Wigan Athletic
    Bolton Wanderers
    Blackburn
    Stoke City
    Birmingham
    Hull City (this is more because I love Jozy Altidore)
    —————————————
    Burnley
    Sunderland
    Portsmouth

    This is more inline with my views as I have had sometime to sit and ponder as opposed to rifling it off at work.

    • DZ says:

      OK, Adam, I have to say that I’m sorry to see you change your picks. Your OPINION is no less valid than anyone else’s despite the relative little time you’ve been watching the league. I’ve only been watching for 4 seasons myself and believe I’m qualified to debate CURRENT topics and matchups regardless of ‘historical knowledge’. It’s not that the historical isn’t important, it’s that it is what it is – history.

      You’ve got your Big 4 that the media slobbers over and a few annual contenders to the bunch that the media will ridicule and deem ‘not worthy’, a small bunch of mid-table teams that get relative little press, and the the relegation bunch of which the media will usually include approximately 7-8 teams until April approaches and survival race comes to a climax. Same crap stories, different year. Unfortunately, some fans of the game have succumbed to the annual tripe and not only refuse to consider anything out of the ordinary, but ridicule others who differ much as any xenophobe might.

      I wonder if Camden Town Rob had Newcastle going down last year? In fact I’d bet he even had them in the top 10.

      Sincerely,
      DZ, Yank and Football fan

      • Thanks DZ,

        Being 28 and of sound mind and body, did no change my picks over Camdens tiff yesterday, but more so do to the fact that I hastely through it together when I saw the post during work. After I got home last night I went through the transfer list and what the clubs have done and changed my stances a bit on certain teams. I watched Arshavin tear up Liverpool last season and hadnt even thought about him during my post, now we will see how he can perform for the whole year and if eduardo shows no ill effects from the ankle. As for Tottenham, I am not a crouche fan, but Tottenham who was one of my fav teams to root for last season could be better served from a hoe year under houdini. And finally for Chelsea, I think they are to old to stand up through the entire season and with their cup competitions. Which is why I slid them down to the bottom of the top 4. Anyway thats a little insight to why I made the changes to the picks. Believe me Ive stood my ground against the best of um.

    I would love to see Bolton Hull and Wigan go down this year…Bolton the most bc watching a Bolton game is like watching paint dry or even worse MLS! No way Chelsea takes the title bc of Carlo Ancelotti..he CAN NOT coach a team in the Champions League and do well in the League at the same time anymore..he’s proven in time after time in the last 5 years..he’s there to win the Champs league not the EPl..Even with all of Man United transfer loss they still have the great center of defense and I think they’ll be hard to beat..love to see Arsenal suprise people and go on a run like we did 2 years ago but we dont buy defense and I just dont see all of out attackers staying Healthy as we seemed to be cursed with Training injurys every year..The Pool will put up a great challenge in my view but again with only 2 all out goal scorers who arent healthy all the time i see Man U taking it again..They also have the BIG EDGE in the Manager Department!

    • DZ says:

      From a Wigan fan, I’m interested to know why you’d “love to see… Wigan go down this year”? Not sure what they’ve ever done to deserve such scorn except to achieve well beyond their very modest (and, I daresay, financially sound) budget – having a crack a Europa spot late in the season last year was especially exciting for me.

      Sorry you fans of the oligarchy cannot see the value in having teams other than the ‘Big 4.5′ succeed despite odds, media, and the system consistently stacked against them.

    • Eladio says:

      Arsenal lost Toure but brought in Vermaelen. This is at worst a push, probably an improvement in central defense.

      Losing Adebayor on paper looks bad, but I see it as addition by subtraction. Toward the end of last year he was a bad distraction, and not a team player. If Eduardo stays healthy, he’s just as good as a finisher as Ade, plus a better ball handler.

      By all accounts, Arsenal is BETTER this year than last year. Of course it remains to be seen what happens on the pitch. But if you can’t see that Arsenal is better than last year, you just aren’t looking.

        Eladio is completely correct. And the fact that Ade and Toure weren’t our best players last year, and have easily been replaced by Vermaelen and Eduardo. I love Toure, but his game was getting slowly worse, and he was too similar to Gallas. Adebayor was getting increasingly annoying, didn’t work nearly as hard, wasted way to many opportunities, and his paycheck was way too much for a player of “his high caliber”. Arsenal have easily benefitted from these sales and I can almost guarantee the same (or better) position from last year.

        And I’d like to ask skylike: When was the last time Spurs finished in the top 4? Or above Arsenal? I’m sorry but you’re going mad with those predictions on $1000…

        • TeacherMan says:

          Wow- what a terrible prediction. I can say this now we are near the end of the league… Why on Earth did you put Arsenal 7th? I may be slightly biased as a Gooner but that was just insane!

    League Cup—Tottenham Hotspur

    Champions League—Chelsea

    Europa League—(have no idea)

    I think chelsea’s time has come for another title after 3 years, and also finally for a european cup. Liverpool once again will retain a very healthy league postion, Although i firmly belive Manchester United will win the F.A Cup, their league postion would have somewhat dropped from 1st to 3rd. I also believe that its Tottenham’s year to shine by breaking into the top 4 due to Harry Redknapp’s great form in charge of Spurs. Manchester City’s postion is just all based on needing time to gel. A big dogfight will occur between the bottom 6 and relegation, and that’s the way it will end, with Burnley and Stoke City just avoiding relegation to the Championship.

    • Mike K says:

      The main problem with Spurs is their consistency and defending – both of which didn’t greatly improve during Redknapps appointment, so are you hoping this will improve or something this next season? Yes, Spurs have become a slightly better team under Redknapp and I could see them finishing 5th or 6th, but to crack a Champions League place seems a little much with little or no improvement over the summer from the team that placed 8th last year.

    Arsenal to finish 2nd as they have a young team that’s been together for a while now, therefore Could be there time to shine. Chelsea have an old team and could strugle if they play to many games IE. Decent cup runs which I expect therefore placed em in 5th. Also Ancelloti Strugled with Milan last season. Burnley will be a suprise package just like everone wrote Hull off last season.

    I’ve gone for a couple of gambles but this is certainly going to be the most open season ever! :)

          TELL MY Y THIS CANT HAPPEN

          • Mike K says:

            I never said it couldn’t happen, I’m saying it won’t happen. Fulham have had an amazing record at home for the past 4 or 5 years – the highest they’ve finished was about 6th or 7th. Stoke is arguably (and statistically from last season) worse than Fulham even with their great home form. You are taking ONE element of a good team and making it out to be the only one that matters when that is completely false. If Stoke poured millions into the team like City then I could easily see a Europa League spot, but they haven’t. They have the same players as last season, so a mid to bottom half finish is likely.

            Rangers have a strong team in every area – for the SPL, but that’s about it. Scottish teams awful record away from home will only hurt them in Europe. I wish Rangers would win the Champions League, but that won’t be happening any time soon with the likes of Utd, Barcelona, Madrid, Chelsea, etc.

          • connor says:

            STOKE WILL MAINTAIN THE BEST HOME RECORD IN THE LEAGUE AND THEYRE AWAY RECORD WILL THIS SEASON WILL B SECOND ONLY 2 CHELSEA

            AND RANGERS WILL SIGN THE TRILIST WHO SCORED A HAT TRICK ON HIS DEBUT AND COMBINED WITH BOY 90 GOALS A YEAR

            So you are listing preseason game results and saying they are equivalent to regular season, cup winning results? Big difference buddy.

            “STOKE WILL MAINTAIN THE BEST HOME RECORD IN THE LEAGUE AND THEYRE AWAY RECORD WILL THIS SEASON WILL B SECOND ONLY 2 CHELSEA” – Ur hoping i assume? Because I can almost guarantee that won’t happen. When’s the last time a team in 14th finished 4th the next year in the Premier League? As far as I can remember, never.

            “AND RANGERS WILL SIGN THE TRILIST WHO SCORED A HAT TRICK ON HIS DEBUT AND COMBINED WITH BOY 90 GOALS A YEAR ” – So you’re saying a TRIALIST, someone who hasn’t even played for a top club, is going to score 45 goals, almost as much as Ronaldo, in his first season with Rangers? And I’m assuming “BOY” is Boyd, someone who is also going to score 45 goals this year? Keep dreaming.

  58. justin says:

    i am a MK dons supporter so i am not biased towards any team in the prem, but i love the excitment of the prem and watch every game i can

    1. chelsea
    (they r looking very storng pre-season and have the grit to grind out 1-0 or 2-1 victories)
    2. arsenal
    (they may be a young team but they r begining to gain experience and the departure of toure and ade’s wont efect them much coz eduardo is looking sharp, the new defender is highly regarded and wilshere is looking very promising for them this year)
    3. man u
    (i dont think they will win a 4th prem in a row and loosing ronaldo will reriously effect the goal tally, but its undeniable that they will push for it again with the team and managment that they have)
    4. liverpool
    (i love liverpool, i think torres and gerrard are the 2 best players in the prem now that rons gone, but i don’t think they can keep up with the other three, they did well last season by finishing above chelsea and arsenal but they have both improved a lot in the last few months and i dont see an improvment in the liverpool team so far)
    5. tottenham
    (they have made some very cleaver signings over the summer, i dont rate chouch that highly but paired with defoe, they r sure to give deffences a chalange and there deffence is looking stronger than ever if king can sort out his injury problems)
    6. everton
    (everton is a strong team, they dont have many big names but work well together and i think thats all down to david moyes, hes a great manager and i think he will keep everton in one of the uafa cup spots)
    7. man city
    (i am doutfull that the mega money spending will pull off this season, in years to come they will gel and become more of a threat just as chelsea did well they became wealthy, but they realy have no choice but to get into a eurapian spot dew to the pressure that surrounds them)
    8. aston villa
    (i like villa and the manager, and i dont like the thought that they may not get into a eurapian spot but the signing of downing is not enough to compensate the depature of barry and other teams around them have got stronger, they missed there chance to get into the top 4 last year, and im sure they are not going to get another chance for a few years to come)
    9. west ham
    (zola,s had his first bite of being a prem manager and he did well last year, hes got a good group of players and they will do well again this year)
    10.sunderland
    ( sunderland have a bit of money now and with campbell and jones upfont, they could pull off a few supprises)
    11. blackburn
    (i think blackburn is an allround good team, there are no real stand out names now that santa cruz has gone but each player has good qualaties)
    12. stoke
    ( i think they will be a real supprise package this season, with beattie, fuller and delaps throw ins, they wont be short on goals)
    13. bolton
    (i dont think they will suffer like they did last season, but they wont get into the top half of the table)
    14. fulham
    (fulham did amazingly well last year under hodgson, but i think its only because of the deffence, they had the 4th best deffencive record last year behind the top 3 teams, but if hangeland gose to arsenal and hughes gets injurd at any point through the season, then they realy have no one to back them up, i think a fulham drop will be the suprise of the season)
    15. wolves
    ( wolves will do well this year, i think they will score quite a few goals with ebanks-blake and doyle upfront, but will struggle at the back)
    16. wigan
    (i think they will fall a little but i wouldn’t be to worried about relegating this year coz i can realy see my next 4 teams being the teams fighting for safety)
    17. portmouth
    (pompy r realy going to struggle this year but i hope (more than i think) that they will stay up, if they do, it will prob be because of david james, hes a great keeper and with him in ur side, uv always got a chance)
    18. birmingham
    (i dont think they are a good enough team to stay in the prem)
    19. burnly
    ( i would love to see them do well this year but i thin they will struggle like derby did a few years ago when they only got 11 points all season, i dont think they will do quite so badly but not by much)
    20. hull
    ( i dont realy like the manager phil brown or hull on the hole, when things were geting tuff about halfway through the season they started to act like children that couldn’t get there own way, and i dont think they were good enough to stay in the prem last year but they managed it because of the points there gaind early in the season, and i dont think they r good enough to stay in the prem this year)

    the top 4 was very hard to choose but i realy think chelsea will win it, man u will deffinatly be in the top 3, i think arsenal will pick up consistancy because i can see a real comparison to the invincables from 2004, and i think liverppol wont be realy tested but 5th and 6th but wont do as well as the other three big teams.

    arsenal will win the F.A. cup this year beacuse they need to win somthing

    i think ether arsenal or man u will win the carling cup (arsenal because there kids will want to show off and man u because i cant see them wining nothing this year)

    and real madrid or inter milan will win the chamions league.

    TO Dz.I would Love to see WIgan go down do to their horrible fan support.Home and Away their stands are always empty almost no matter what the situation.A few years ago when you first came up it was different I remember a great 3 -2 game at the JJb between us and people were there! now no1 attends the town cleary cares about Rugby and most Wigan games are throw aways .Again I dont think you ll go down though.and it s nice to hear from a Passionate Wigan fan I did not know they existed.Onto the Hot Snots fans Good Ol Harry was just quoted in a Tv interview as being worried about the season and the fans expectations .I think unfortunately you ll have a good season which is a top 10 finish and maybe a good Carling Cup run something you know we use the kids to play in..But I forgot up there I d love to see Spuds religated but im realistic and know its not gunna happen this season if only Ramos stayed last year..you’d be gone!!

  60. Andy Sydney says:

    I’m not going to make a prediction, (short of saying that Liverpool will be in the mix), I just wanted to say: Camden Rob, please creep back to which ever cave you came from. People are here to make predictions, not to slate the bollocks off of each other.
    If your life is so pathetic that you require self validation by tearing down others on this board, there’s other places you can go, like 4chan.
    There’s every chance that Arsenal will slip out of the top 4. Sure, they have a ‘well rounded’ forward line, but do they have any depth at the back? Vermaelen is unproven, Senderos wasn’t good enough for Milan’s Jurassic defence, Gallas has attitude problems… That leaves the “Twin Towers” of defensive fortitude, Djourou and SIlvestre. Djourou is more of a defensive midfielder to my mind and Silvestre… well, the less said about Mikael, the better. Although he does have a better goal to game ratio than Walcott, maybe put him up front?
    My point is, it isn’t totally preposterous to say that Arsenal will slip out of the top 4.
    By the way, you spell it ‘Barista’, not “Barrister’. Geez, you’d think you’d be able to spell your profession correctly. Now go and make some coffee, squire.

    • Camden Rob says:

      1.) You haven’t been following Arsenal as of late I suppose, Senderos will not be an Arsenal player for long. Wonder why we loned him out, and wanted him to stay?? Wow.
      2.) Your mind must be letting you down, Djourou is a CENTER BACK. And Song is also CB, (although I’ve been let down by him time and time again), this leaves Silvestre last in the pecking order. And I never said we have a perfect Central defence did I? We don’t and will most likely need to sign someone, and I’ll give you one guess as to who were using for trade bait…
      3.) Barista???? Lol. Not from around here? Enough said.

      Your argument is we have shit D, and I know this. Mine was that we have a sufficent striking force. And if we don’t sign someone hopefully will win 6-5 every game.

      Honestly didn’t mean to slate anyone, again I just get way to fired up about Arsenal. Sorry.

      You seem to be only highlighting the weaknesses of the defence, which could be easily done for other teams as well. Ferdinand used to have drug problems, Carvalho doesn’t even want to stay on his team, Carragher quit international football because he cried about not playing his favored position, etc. it’s easy to pick out people.

      Im not saying Arsenal’s back-line is outstanding, but it isn’t awful. Vermaelen – he may be “unproved” to you, and that’s understandable because he hasn’t played a minute in the Premier League, but it’s not like he’s going to completely collapse under EPL pressure – he was captain at Ajax last season, they didn’t give it to him because he’s mentally weak.

      Gallas does have a little attitude problem, but that doesn’t mean he’s a bad player. He’s grown and become a much more solid player since losing the arm band. Diouf has MAJOR attitude and mental problems but nobody says he’s horrific (alright, he’s not amazing, but he’s the first player that popped into my head).

      Djourou hasn’t played holding mid since he was 17…so I don’t believe he’d be playing that position unless all of our holding mids get injured. He is a CB by trade. Silvestre is only staying because he is worthless. So it’s not our fault we still have him. He won’t be seeing much of the field hopefully. Your little remark about Silvestre having a better goal ratio then Walcott is completely irrelevant, Walcott was out half of the season due to injury, while Silvestre got games due to injuries to Gallas, Toure, etc.

    Everton Depends On Lescott To Man City?
    But Apart From That Chelsea Are Too Solid.

    • Mike K says:

      “Arsenal Rely On Youth, But Are Class” – Do you mind explaining this a bit more? You say they are reliant on youth, but are “class”, so if they are “class”, shouldn’t they finish higher?

      “Tottenham Should Have A Good Year Always Do” – So getting less than 5 pts in the first 12 games or so of the season is “good”? They finished better, but barely managed 8th place. How is this good if the team is predicted by you to finish 5th? By your predictions, they won’t have a good season, they’ll have a phenomenal season finishing 5th, especially above Arsenal, which they haven’t done in god knows how long.

    Mate, this is all I said..

    ‘In which all I stated was that we still have a well rounded striking force ( easily top 4 in the league)’
    August 10, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    ‘As far as other clubs, I would put up Chelsea and Liverpool’s strike force (and now Man City’s) against Arsenal’s every day of the week.’
    August 11, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    Not that I like arguing at all ( I work in the tax chamber), but don it’ just prove you lost this pathetic argument?

    Well rounded doesn’t mean you have 6 El Ninos running about the pitch. What it means is you have sufficent depth, talent and aptitude. I did not by any means mean that every striker on our bench has a 1:1 goal ratio. What I mean is that we have the depth and sustainability to compete in the top 4. I’m not mad, I don’t think Arsenal will win any major silverware, but what I do think is that the people writting them off to 6th place or worse are generally people who would never dare to come back here after this seasons said and done.

  63. Matt W says:

    Predicting the exact finishes of each premiership team is very difficult, but here goes.

    1 Man utd ( I hope I’m wrong, really I do)
    2 Liverpool
    3 Chelsea
    4 Arsenal
    5 Man city
    6 Everton
    7 Aston Villa
    8 Spurs
    9 West Ham
    10 Fulham
    11 Sunderland
    12 Blackburn
    13 Wigan
    14 Stoke
    15 Bolton
    16 Birminham
    17 Wolves
    18 Portsmouth
    19 Hull City
    20 Burnley

    I think it could be very close between the top 3 this season
    It’s no guarantee but Arsenal should be strong enough to hold 4th spot
    It will be interesting to see how well Man city gel but I think 5th is within their grasp.
    Splitting Everton, Villa and spurs is a hard one to call.
    West ham, Sunderland, Blackburn and Fulham will probably be fighting out the mid table spaces.
    Stoke, Bolton and Wigan should have enough to stay up.
    I think any of the others could get relegated.
    There’s usually one or two surprises tho – and it should be a very interesting season.

  64. Louis Howard says:

    But Mike K, you have to understand that if we had redknapp the whole season, im pretty sure we would have picked up more than 2 points in 8 games…we played the likes of middlesbrough, wigan, sunderland, aston villa and still lost to them! With ol’ harry im sure we would have picked up about 16 points. (so take off the 2 that we had and replace it with 16) We finished on 51..so take 2 is 49, 49 plus 16 is 65. If we do a little better and gain a couple more points, then why cant we break into the top 4 like we were going to do in the 2005/2006 season until a bloody chef gave the whole squad food poisoning.

    And no, even me as a spurs supporter does not rate peter ‘lanky’ crouch and i’v spoken to some other sours supporters that dont rate him. But im not too fussed, as long as he dosnt do that stupid robot dance.

    • Mike K says:

      With your math, they’d still finish up 5th last season, and multiple seasons before. If your 16 pts from 8 games is correct, that means, on average, they would pick up 2/3 of the pts available on the season, or about 76 pts. That’s 25 pts better than last season, equivalent to a 4th place finish.

      Im taking the “average” considering Spurs will become more consistent than last season, so they’ll beat the “Boros, Wigans, Sunderlands, etc.” of the league but still lose out on a couple Top 4 games, etc.

      Im sorry but I couldn’t see THAT much of an improvement. We’ll just have to wait to see what happens.

      As for Crouch, he may help out Defoe for flick ons and headers, but dont expect much more. He is notorious for scoring against lower league opposition and Prem strugglers. I couldn’t see him getting a starting place over Keane and Defoe. Only time I remember scoring any goals against a legit team was Arsenal (later after the Brum “collapse after Eduardo inury” game in 07/08) when he got a hat trick…a sad day.

  67. justin says:

    i strongly believe that the top 4 will stay the top 4 by quite some distance, if arsenal can fend off villa and everton by 9 and 10 points wen they had big players injured, then they will atleast stay 4th or higher with eduardo and rosicky back and the amazing new talent of wilshere.

    the only team below the top 4 that have made any indication that they could close that huge gap between the top 4 and the rest is man city, and i realy dont think they will gel quickly enough to contend with the top 4, never mind win the league.

    i like the prospect of a new threat to the top 4, it will bring new exitment to the prem, and i think that man city will contend for the prem title, but not for a few years yet.

    i dont mean to put man city down but i dont even think there team as it stands is good enough to chalange the top 4, even if they gel perfectly in the first game, look at it like this, tevez found it hard to get and stay in the first team 4 man u, thats y he left, adebayor was lazy and selfish wen he played for arsenal and toure began to look slow over the last couple of seasons, santa cruz i think could have been a real star for one of the big 4 but i think hes going to suffer with man city because if he went to a team like liverpool then they would have spent a lot of time to help him to grow, but at man city the manager will be spending there time geling the team than impoving each play indavidualy.

    chelsea will win the league this year, even if they dont sign any more players!

  68. justin says:

    if you saw arsenal play in the emerates cup then u will know not to rule them out of this years title race, on there day they can beat any team, even if the other team was playing well aswell, look at the arsenal vs ac milan champions league matches, both teams played amazin football but arsenal came out on top, and that was wen they didn’t have much experience,

    im not an arsenal supporter but i like the way they play, and if they can get it right this season like they did a few years ago wen they were top of the league at chirstmas, but after that terrible injury to eduardo, they lost a lot of momentum and finished 3rd, i still think they desurved to win the title that season purely for the way they played befor they lost there way

  69. Sam says:

    new to this argument but “well rounded” means you could take any of their strikers and they would produce goals, (i am a spurs fan so i do hate arsenal) van persie arshavin eduardo walcott bendtner and vela are a better 6 man strike force as good as anyone can produce

    I don’t really see that any of the top 4 have improved massively over the summer, which will give City a chance to break into the top four, and I’ve gone with Liverpool to win it mainly because of the Torres and Gerrard combination, even though they’re bound to miss Alonso.

    As for the bottom of the table, as a Wolves fan I might be a LITTLE bit biased, but I think we’ve made the right signings to stay up, especially Doyle and Mancienne (who’ll hopefully sign tomorrow). Combine that with the core of the Championship winning team, most of whom have been linked with established Premiership clubs, and I think we’ve got a good enough squad. I don’t see Burnley or Hull putting up much of a fight, and Stoke havn’t made many signings so I chose them instead of Wolves, Blues and Pompey, but any of those four could be in 18th place.

    If Arsenal will be a better team because they have players coming back then what about everton? they lost Yakubu and Arteta for most of the season, their best midfielder and striker and still managed a 5th place finish and an FA cup final (for which they didnt have their best defender either) so imagine how much better Everton will be this season, i think they will push for 4th this season and win something (my guess is the Carling cup) btw i dont support everton before any accuses me of being biased.
    I think Chelsea will win the league with Man Utd in second and Liverpool 3rd, Arsenal/Everton for 4th, Stoke, Birmingham and Bolton to go down

    I am predicting a big Man Utd collapse this year for the following reasons:- (I’m not an anti-Manu U fan, I have enjoyed their football and the amazing talents they have had). They have lost some key players this year, of course most notably, Ronaldo, who love or hate him was like having twelve players on the pitch. A huge injury list already, and has Alex F. finally lost the plot a bit? I thought so after watching the Champion’s League Final. – Playing Park, some very dubious tactics and keeping key players on the bench. It’s a game they could have won. How many times has the Fergie proved us wrong though?? I think Spurs will be well up the division, how did Harry finish where they did after the start they made last year?

    I’m going for Man City to fininsh higher than most predict as I think they are going to do a bit of a Newcastle (when they were second to Man U) with lots and lots of goals from their world class strike force, but maybe letting in quite a few at the back despite having reliable Shay.

    Hull for bottom as they are rubbish and haven’t improved their squad much, they only stayed up last year due to the dreadful teams around them. Portsmouth for relegation as they are on downward spiral, they’ve sold first team players and off the pitch matters will keep spirits low. Burnley for relegation as there is always one newly promoted team bounced straight back, and I see them as the weakest of the three.

    Hope to see some big suprises in the coming season!

    (One of which will be Newcastle in a Final)

    Chelsea are at danger because of African Cup of Nations but still top squad if they can weather the absences. Man U never to be dismissed. Arshavin scares the piss out of me. Still, too many early injuries and departures to capture premiership. Could be really dangerous in other cups where they have more time to heal/mature. Pool too dependent on the health of Gerrard and Torres. Moyes a gritty scrapper that can keep them in the 5. Man City could go anywhere 6-9 unless they pick up a Joleon or Alex. That being said, they should cause upheaval at the top by 1 or 2 shock victories over the big 4. Fulham have much tougher year so staying static is growth. Wish spurs were better… they aren’t. Harry keeps them midtable. Zola was a genius. Zola is a genius. He’s got young fun talent. A shallowish bench and no money. Expect more relative miracles. Sunderland are dangerous. Bent gets lots of goals. Potters not changed much. Continue to impress at Britannia. Not so much away from the Britannia. Wanderers do about the same. May slip into relegation battle but they stay up. Rovers cough up lots of goals and roll over versus good squads. Continue to marshal forces on the Pompeys. Maybe Di Santo makes them more interesting? The bye byes of Valencia, Cattermole, and Zaki look damning but Wigan has good unproven talent coming in. They can hang on. It would be shocking if they looked to contend for europe again though. Jensen bails out Burnley enough times to stay up. Until recently saw Hull as certain relegation. Recent moves make me think that they are a toss up with the Wolves. If Sylvan Ebanks-Blake can replicate some of his championship success, maybe Hull and Wolverhampton flip flop? Poor sad Portsmouth. The only joy I see here is that Pompey and the Saints get to renew their rivalry in 2010-2011. Birmingham to be manhandled by the rest of the EPL.

  87. justin says:

    i dont see chelsea (the favourates to win the league) beating hull 6 – 1, infact i see them struggaling against a side that most people have prodicted to get relagated.

    i know that its not single results that count and that its all about the consistancy the teams need to win the league, but a fine desplay from the ” underdogs” in the first game of the new prem league.

    • S A Meiner says:

      It was a fine scary win for arsenal but chelsea is still the squad the gunners are going to have go through. I think arsenal as a complete squad are far better than last years starting edition (a little older/a little more mature and losing toure gaining vermaelen & losing adebayor gaining arshavin (in january)). the questions for arsenal are do they have enough depth, are they healthy enough, and are they mature enough to win out over a whole season. especially with extra qualifiers. I don’t see them overtaking chelsea over a full season but I do see them scaring a lot of people. I see them getting at least one piece of silverware. and I do think they get a top 3 spot. If they do overtake chelsea it’s going to be because chelsea is so susceptible to the african cup of nations

      • justin says:

        i agree, chelsea r the team to beat. if ronaldo and even tevez hadn’t left then im sure we’d be saying that man u would be the team to beet. man u still have a great team and may still be the best team in the prem, maybe even in europe, but there team has lost important players and the teams around them r going to try even harder to knock them off the top block.

        as for arsenal, anything could happen, they could end on top spot if they play like they did against everton for over 3/4 of all there games (consistantly), or they could finish outside the top 4 if there consistancy stays the same as it was last year.

        arsenal had a big problem at one point last year wen aston villa was about 8 points infront of them, if that happens again this year, im sure the team causing the problems 4 arsenal wont slip up like villa did last year.

        i support MK dons but id love to see arsenal do well this year, they have in ‘my opinion’ the best manager in the prem, no man can do wat hes dose, if he was manager for a team in the 2nd devision, he would take them strait up to the prem in a few years just by doing wat hes done for arsenal.

        there r no players left in the team from the ‘invincables’ era, so since 2004 hes designed a brand new team by spending less on there players than the likes of everton, villa, man c and tottenham have for the players they currently have on the squads. i do think its a bit weired that he wont spend more money on players seeing as how he has the money to do it with, but i trust his love for arsenal and i know he only dose wats best for the club, he just needs to win some silerware to shut some of there critics up.

  88. justin says:

    todays result between liverpool and tottenham shows that liverpool are not invincable, even wen torres and gerrard are playing. i think tottenham are going to be a real hazard for the top 4 this year, i think they pose more of a threat to the top 4 than man c this year, but its looking likely that the top 4 are going to stay as the top 4, i dont know how the top 4 are going to order at the top, and to be honest, i think the fight for the 3 uafa cup spots is going to be an interesting one, its out of villa, man c, everton and tottenham, so atleast one of them are going to loose out and once again, the struggle for relagation is going to be a good one.

    i know one thing for curtain, its going to be a great season to watch, but as for the result of the table at the end of it, we’ll just have to watch and enjoy.

      revisons in table predictions
      still not impressed with united but I really couldn’t believe how they squeaked so many games last year even with ron. what I see is a 4th place squad. still, sir alex’s record in the prem is 11 firsts, 3 seconds, and 3 thirds. and two of those thirds were versus those powerhouse gunners and blues squads. I leave man u in the 2 only because of ferguson. he knows how to get one-nils where other better squads get draws. and because no one yet looks dominant this year. arsenal will surprise everybody but they still have too many maturity, depth, injury issues. I think I was wrong about the spurs. Never really seen Harry with anything except a midtable to relegateable squad barring the too young but ridiculously talented west ham days. I’m moving spurs into the 4. dropping pool (you have such little faith in your bench that you have to leave skrtel in when he can’t turn his head?) from 4 to 5 and sliding everton behind man city. villa look atrocious. o’neill has a lot to correct. he’s a good manager but I’m skeptical. everton looked atrocious as well but I just can’t see everton finishing lower than an 8 with moyes in charge. west ham, fulham, stoke, sunderland, and maybe wigan are toss ups for the 8th through 12. blackburn looks safe from relegation but not much else. impressed with birmingham. curious about how they play midtable/poor squads. wasn’t really that impressed with hull but still think that they get better as they go with new signings. have a feeling about burnley. they hung in there with stoke despite stoke being much better squad and at britannia. we’ll see. thinking bolton is bad. had them out of drop zone really just out of pedigree. Wolves maybe better than they showed vs west ham but unless Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is messiah like, they at least have a long year. Pompey even worse than I thought. I really feel for fratton faithful. seems terribly unfair

    Cheers! All the Man City fanatics will slowly see the sieve-like defense that that club possesses. Toure’s best days are done, Robinho is overpaid, Bellamy who? Adebayor and Ireland are the tops on that club. Given is good but not enough to take to the top of the world. and Roque santa cruz gets injured gettin out the shower! The loss of Ronaldo is the only reason i see them falling to 2. the goals won’t reach last years total of, was it 68? either way. Arsenal and Liverpool fight for 3rd! may we all enjoy this season!

    • Kyle says:

      City’s sieve like defence? lol…

      2 clean sheets so far, 3 if you include our WIN OVER BARCELONA!….
      Toure, Lescott, Dunne, Richards, Onuoha, Zabaleta, Mee, Bridge, Silvinho and more…i think we are brimming with quality in our back line.

      with no Europe to tire us out i reckon City are certain for AT THE VERY LEAST… top 6… I would even dare to believe we COULD break the top 4; but am realistic enough to know that will take time.

    manchester united dont look like the team they have been the last several years, yet u shud never right them off.. arsenal are playing sublime football as always but i cant see them breaking into the top two, chelsea look solid.. good blend of youth and experiance and with the return of joe cole things can only get better.. scoring for fun with a solid back line..
    as for relagation.. if u ask me, wolves cant score.. cant defend.. theyve signed no one whos good enuf for the prem.. straight back down for me, portsmouth arent lookin good at all but resant results show they may put up a fight but cant see them surviving.. west ham dont have the strenght in depth to stop up.. zolas the wrong man for them

    as for championship promotions

    newcastle and albion look good to fight for top spot..
    as for play offs.. cardiff/boro maybe leicester if they can keep up their form

    Chelsea have the strongest squad and wont concede and can control the midfield
    Liverpool cant cope with the midfield loss of Xabi Alonso and wont win very easily unless Torres and Gerrard are both fully fit-I cant see them finishing in the top four but spurs looks strong on the attacking side with crouch defoe and lennon

    I think Portsmouth can sneak past relegation with Avram Grant but West Ham and wolves will go down and I really cant see Bolton finishing anywhere other than last

      Blimey! And here was me naively thinking that Birmingham were safe from relegation – who’d have thought how wrong I was. Did you even look at the table before writing this?

    HULL WILL STRUGGLE, SO WILL BURNLEY AS THEY DO NOT HAVE THE STANDARD OF PLAYERS FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE, PORTSMOUTH WILL NEVER RECOVER AND MAY DO WELL AND GET POINTS AT THE END OF THE SEASON BUT WILL BE TOO LATE.

    MAN U WILL MISS OUT AND CHELSEA WILL WIN IT THIS SEASON AS CHELSEA ARE LOOKING THE MUCH STRONGER SIDE.

    Manchester United will win the title again. Though Arsenal will very closely follow with Chelsea just behind. Liverpool will grab 4th spot with Manchester City getting the UEFA Cup place. Aston Villa, Tottenham and Everton will miss out on 4th and 5th places. The usual mid table sides won’t change very much with Fulham, Stoke, Sunderland and Blackburn finishing closely. Then by quite a margin finshes Wolves followed by Wigan, Bolton and West Ham. Burnley, Hull and Portsmouth will be relegated.
