Premier League champions: Chelsea. Just think they've strengthened in all the right areas. It's crazy how often teams fail to identify obvious weak links that everyone can see - United's lack of centre mids, Arsenal never finding a holding mid while overloading on attacking mids, Tottenham's ever-unbalanced squad. Last year Chelsea's obvious weakness was that they lacked a striker, they signed last season's best out-and-out striker in Europe. Liverpool won't be anywhere near this year, Arsenal and United might get closer but still won't be challenging...it's out of Chelsea and City, and I think Chelsea have strengthened massively while City have just had a wee tinker.

Qualifiers for the Champions League: Chelsea, City, Arsenal and United. The first two are a given, the other two will be fighting it out with Liverpool and possibly Everton/us (unlikely in both cases) but should have enough given their improvements.

Relegated: West Brom, Burnley and West Ham. I think QPR have strengthened well - Ferdinand was an obvious signing but one that, even half-fit and ageing, should do well for the standard they need as well as helping Caulker improve. Sunderland should do better, Leicester have a bit of money behind them...Burnley have done nothing so far and will struggle to hold onto the players that took them up, West Brom look bollocksed and the West Ham/Allardyce relationship has to go sour at some point; when it does they will be fucked as, cunt that he is, Allardyce does a good job with shit teams.

Promoted: Not really up to date on what the Championship is saying but Derby look well set, Norwich should bounce back and maybe Fulham seeing as the club are spending silly money on proven Championship heroes to get back up.

Top goalscorer: Would be easy to say Costa but I'm going to say RVP. Just think Van Gaal will get the most out of him.

Player of the Season: Toure's bulying his way to the front of the queue with all his whinging at the moment, so if he does well again last year it will be politically difficult for him not to get it.

Young Player of the Season: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, such a good player and if he stays fit he should play regularly for the cunts.

Sack race winner: Allardyce. Good riddance.

FA Cup winners: City.

League Cup winners: United, on their way back up.

Champions League winners: Think Guardiola will have the hump with how Bayern collapsed last year and win it back for them.

Europa League winners: :dunno: Can't remember what the rules are now re. CL clubs dropping down and am I right in thinking the winner gets a CL spot from this year? If so then you should see a lot more teams taking it seriously - maybe Fiorentina?

Best signing: If anyone from the Prem signs Di Maria, then him. Otherwise Costa. Kicking, punching, scratching and diving his way to dubious glory.

Worst signing: Enner Valencia. Panic buy after a good World Cup, textbook flop case. Watch him score 20 now.

Oxford City. Don't have a Premiership team.

Ah right, post more in this forum. I want to hear your opinions on Graham Dorrans.

Why City and not United, Clive?

Can't tell if you're being serious or not.

I don't know too much about him. Didn't get much of a look in last season did he? Used to be quite good from what I remember, he's been at West Brom for ages.

Why City and not United, Clive?

I never had an affiliation with a team, and when I graduated from Uni I needed something to entertain me on the weekends. I lived in a small village outside of Oxford and me and all my friends thought going to see Oxford City would be a laugh. You can drink in the stands, it was budget borderline Sunday league football, and they were winning. United were viewed as the 'corporate' team by comparison, more expensive tickets and less of a community feel. We were welcomed in with open arms at City, nicknamed 'The Choir' for our creative chants, and followed them to most of their away games.

I haven't seen a game in about a year because it's difficult now they're in the Conference North, but I just felt like I could associate with it.

Joe Cole was on a free and a massively reduced wage. Hardly worthy of being "worst signing" given there's very little risk to him coming in.

I just think he'll be terrible in terms of performance.

If you look at it like that, I'd have gone for Lallana because I don't believe he's worth the money they paid for him, nor will they get the return they expect from him.

But then again I haven't been paying too much attention to the transfer market, so there is arguably worse signings out there.

I can see him really thriving. Villa missed a creative attacking midfielder last season and it fits him perfectly.

Fair enough I do think he'll be terrible though. He's been past it for years and I can't believe a premiership club that wasn't QPR picked him up. If I'd thought about it I'd probably have gone for the 10m pound striker West Brom have signed. In fact I'm going to change to him now.

Senderos and Richardson are also shite. I was tempted to put Villa to go down in all honesty.

Why did you tip Leeds for promotion?

I know I hate them but even without that I was a bit surprised what with them having a mental owner , they've sold their best player and have appointed a manager who got sacked from Forest Green.

Premier League champions: Arsenal. I think it is going to be a great season and there's so little between the top sides but I fancy this to be Arsenal's year. They need to man up a bit and stop getting hammered three or four times a season but I think everyone at the top will drop a lot of points and if they can stay fit then Walcott and Sanchez - with Ozil and Carlona pulling the strings behind them - will fire Arsenal to the top.

Qualifiers for the Champions League: Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United. Sorry Liverpool.

Relegated: Leicester City, Southampton, West Brom. Leicester have cash but I don't think they're spending it wisely and I don't see where the goals will come from. Southampton are bankers for the drop. West Brom are rubbish. Newcastle to survive on the final day.

Promoted: Fulham, Nottingham Forest, AFC Bournemouth

Top goalscorer: Wayne Rooney

Player of the Season: Alexis Sanchez

Young Player of the Season: Raheem Stirling

Sack race winner: Ronald Koeman

FA Cup winners: Manchester City

League Cup winners: Chelsea

Champions League winners: Real Madrid

Europa League winners: Couldn't care less

Best signing: Alexis Sanchez. Tailor made for the Premier League

Worst signing: No idea.

I think it is more expectation more than anything else. I know they have had shite management, but surely they must get it right eventually

Beefy - such a massive if about getting dicked on by the big sides.

3-6, 1-5, 0-6 & 0-3...I'm not sure we will improve in that area unless we sign an enforcer. I'd love to be wrong, but City and Chelsea in particular look stronger to me still
