    glad to hear you will have a studio so the travel won’t kill you.being a nice guy i will give you a mulligan for your Liverpool pick.

    P.S.it is great to have the EPL back now that i am over 9 years old today is better then Christmas!

  7. jtm371 says:

    happy to see o coyle was served a nice karma sandwich on his return to Turf Moor was not happy how he handled the Burnley situation when he bolted for Bolton.2 nil for Burnley.

  8. Astronomer says:

    Boris,
    Alejandro coming second is understandable and plausible, but Man City at third ? Why the pessimism ?

    Chelsea at 1st ? Why the optimism ?

    I hope your prediction comes out right, though, as that would mean Alejandro will not be allowed to win another title.

    Astronomer,

    I’ve been picking the top three correctly for past several years so I am hoping the trend continues.

    I like what Chelsea have done in the offseason and considering they’ve just won the Champions League, you would think they have momentum on their side.

    I am excited about Kagawa and Van Persie on top of that, not to mention that Ferguson will not contend with another second place finish. He will give Chelsea a run for their money.

    As far as Man City are concerned, they have not really done much in the offseason and they will need to upgrade if they are to compete on multiple fronts. I personally do not think they are ready to contend for both the Premier League as well as the Champions League. They will have to focus on one and I have a feeling that they will make more of an attempt on doing well in the Champions League. Hence, the third place finish.

  10. Seattle Loon says:

    As an a LFC fan I fear Liverpool will really struggle this year. Primarily because of a continued inability to score goals. Suarez isn’t a natural goal-scorer, Carroll is unwanted and this is Borini’s first full season as a starter in the EPL. With Kuyt, Maxi and Bellamy gone there’s virtually nothing in reserve and the likes of Downing, Gerrard and Henderson may continue to provide little from midfield.

    So here’s to them pulling a cat out of the bag before the end of August in terms of transfers.

    I think Newcastle will continue their upward momentum and that Everton will have a good season too. Not surprised to see West Brom play so well on Saturday they have a good squad. And Swansea look like they are building well for this season too.

    Overall I think it’s going to be a really interesting year in terms of results.

    I think we are in the midst of a several season cycle of the EPL getting broadly more competitive as coaching and tactics improve, signings get better and every team continues to become more professional and modern in their approach to the game.

  11. Colin says:

    Hey guys I know that our CEO Mr. Wenger has sold our top products but don’t you think that the new members can gel quickly enough to give a top four finish. I think so, and we appear to be having a little more in the tank, in terms of players coming back from injury.

  12. BielsaKielbasa says:

    Colin – What do ya mean “quickly gel” and “more in the tank” compared to when and to whom? Diaby, a young Wilshere and fat Santos coming back from injury are a spark, not to mention the African Cup and no fullback cover.

    You do realize that other teams evolve as well, don’t ya?

    The like of Everton, Newcastle, Liverpool, Fulham and Tottenham are still looking to add, not to mention the usual suspects!

  13. Astronomer says:

    Bielsakielbasa,
    “Fat” Santos has other immediate problems hanging over his head ! If you follow the news, you will know what I mean.

    I still think that Arsenal are first among equals for the third and fourth spots this season. First and second positions are highly likely to be out of reach.
