***Official*** Barclays (English) Premier League Thread

Start of the season last night with some good results. Hull City beat Fulham which i wasn't fully expecting. It's one match but it will be bad for Fulham to be relegated as we can't have Australia's number 1 goalkeeper not playing top tier soccer.

Tonight's matches(Not results just my predictions)
Aston Villa Vs Manchester City - Villa 2-1
Chelsea Vs Portsmouth - Draw 1-1
Newcastle United Vs Manchester United - Man Utd 2-0

Good to see a thread for the best football league in the world. I support Man United, it seems like we are buying Berbatov or Santa Cruz.

Berbatov would be an awesome buy for United. Villa have their sights on Santa Cruz i believe and some good money.

I am an Aston Villa fan and excited by the news that Randy Lerner has said Martin O' Neill has some big money to spend on players which means Villa can go from perhaps a good team that runs around 6th on the table to pushing it to a "big 5" instead of the current "big 4".

I think Scolari will do great for Chelsea this season and i think will sort out the problems Chelsea has of not bonding together as well as some of the other teams. I think Chelsea will slightly edge out Manchester United this season for first spot.

My top 8 for this season.

1. Chelsea
2. Manchester United
3. Liverpool
4. Arsenal
5. Aston Villa
6. Tottenham
7. Blackburn
8. Everton

I'm not too sold on Scholari's success with Chelsea. I mean, he's never shown a sign of adapting to the English style, his teams have been too flamboyant, but if he IS successful, Chelsea will be unstoppable.

I watch a lot of football and I'm addicted to Sky Sports News, which is basically the EPL news channel and i keep hearing that Alan Curbishley is under pressure despite finishing 10th last season and winning his first game.

I hate the english media at times their expectations are too high. The media got Jol sacked after 2 or 3 games last season as well after two consecuitve 5th place finishes.

My predictions Man United will win the league Chelsea will finish second Arsenal will start well but fade. Beneitez will get sacked Liverpool will finsih 4th and Villa will finsh 5th unless Everton can get some top signings in the next two weeks.



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

Na Malky I see Liverpool doing really good this year and could challenge for the title. Ofcourse I see Man United winning the season but Chelsea and liverpool are going to be close for second and third. Did you guys know that Man United could of got Torres a couple of years ago? But they wouldnt pay how much Athletico Madrid wanted for him. Torres is the best striker in the premier league and I see him and Gerrard leading Liverpool high up the league this year.

Seems like we are actually getting Berbatov . Man United champions three years in a row.

Edit: Tottenham have a good team this year and could become one of the top four but they need to learn how to play together.

Another Man U fan from London

I see another two horse race for the title TBH I think its a coinflip between Chelsea and Man U.

Arsenal don't have the physical strength or experience IMO but I still expect them to finish 3rd.

Liverpool aren't on the same level as Chelsea or Man U, they have two top world class players whilst you need five or six to mount a realistic title challenge now days. I think Benitez rotates too much and Crouch would have been better than Robbie Keane as long as you play him regularly. Still see them getting 4th though as they've got a pretty good squad.

Think Villa have got a really good shot at 5th this year especially now it looks as though Barry will stay. I think we only need a 20 goals a season striker and a couple of decent squad players and we have a realistic shot at the top four.

I think any three out of West Brom, Stoke, Hull, Fulham, Bolton or Wigan are going down and maybe throw Blackburn into the mix as outsiders despite their result yesterday.

Looking forward to a good season though, hopefully Villa will have a good run in the Uefa Cup aswell.

Been supporting Man U since a was a little boy so you can shut up. I go and watch them once in a while so if you think I am a glory hunter then you can think again. Plz dont get me started.

I was only joking mate but even if you've been supporting them since you were a kid and you go "once in a while" you've got to admit you're still a glory hunter.
