Have edited mine before the season kicks off. But I'm sticking with Arsenal to win the league!

Being realistic, I'm probably only interested in the bottom 4 places!

but I reckon it's going to be:

17. Burnley
18. West Ham/ Villa - or Palace if they don't get sorted out quick
19. QPR (they're desperately spending but used up any luck in getting promoted)
20. WBA

QPR won't go down. Signing both Caulker and Ferdinand was a master stroke. Comfortable midtable.

Ferdinand is liability these days - he might have the know how but he's lost something as he's a shadow of the player he once was.

Caulker is pretty good, mind.

QPR will be safe though. Even though 'Arry is well over rated.

The genius in signing Ferdinand is less about his performance on the pitch as the knowledge and experience he brings to the training ground and dressing room. I don't like the man but he was possibly the only Englishman in Brazil to come out of the World Cup with an enhanced reputation and that was from the safety of the studio. Caulker's very good and tbh the bottom 13 of the PL are pretty much of a muchness so anything that makes you better than the rest will make you comfortably safe.

I think there'll be egg on your mush at the end of the season. A modest wager on the West London wideboys staying up?

Stand by that. They won't go down or stay up based on performances v the top 7. It's beating the bottom 10 that matters.

I think Swansea will struggle badly, sadly. Bony will get nabbed in January. Not sure what you're basing your assessment of Garry Monk on (1/3 of a season of utter mediocrity?) but he's already had training ground fracas with 2 players (one of them being Chico Flores notwithstanding) and I saw nothing last season to mark him out as a good manager. I like him though. We'll see.


Westie was right!!!! ;-)

Bony was nabbed in January (and it made no difference!).

Great season from the Swans and Garry Monk is proving to be something of a find.

The rest of my predictions. Not so good.
