Well, it was about this time last year I started a new thread, so I thought I would presume to do the honors again, and with the PL ready to kick off tomorrow, it seemed like the time.

(With all due respect to the Ekstraklasa, of course).

So, predictions? Thoughts? Will Harry Kane wind up on Man City's bench? Will Liverpool regret lose Wijnaldum, or really regret losing him?

Man City (boring!)
LFC
Man Utd
Leicester City (this is the year they manage to hold on!)

Chelski
Arseanal
Leeds
West Ham
Spurs
Southampton
Wolves
Everton
Aston Villa
Burnley
BHA
Watford
Newcastle

Norwich City
Crystal Palace
Brentford

Was scoping out footballforums.net trying to get a finger on the Harry Kane situation.  Nothing specific in the transfers section.  The lot on the Hotspurs thread act as though he's already gone.  A bit confusing.

I`d sell Harry at his age and the potential to add three very strong players to the first team - defence, creative midfield and attack. We could shift some squad deadwood too and make a net gain for the window with a better team, with the coffers getting properly replenished from now on with fans and events will be allowed at the new stadium. Which was sort of the plan with the £1.2b cost of it :oops:

I`ll come up with my table predictions post-haste.

Sadly the spending power of Man City will be nigh on impossible to stop again this year.
I think United and Chelsea will have good seasons, but I do worry about Liverpool this season.

You have them out of relegation, so it's definitely a good start for Brentford and you. :)

A little late for this, but it's on.  Entertaining early evening with Brentford v Arsenal yesterday, and with Rocky's penchant for getting me up early, Man U v Leeds this morning.  Get in!

:no: I think this is just the kinda thing that sometimes happens, when a side still with half its promotion XI plays against the most expensive squad in history + a full Old Trafford with returning fans etc. Nothing to worry about with Leeds :finbar:

Just realised that I meant to put Wolves in 17th place in my table, not Brighton to finish 12th and 17th. Although frankly, both are among those teams that really nobody remembers are even part of the league, right? :zzz:

Lechia 3 Cracovia 0  :moon:  This team has no scoring threat after Van Amersfoort was moved to midfield from his forward position.
