EPL gets underway this weekend, so let’s have your predictions.

And yes, before you smartasses comment, I don’t expect my boys to beat or even draw against Leicester even though we’re at home.


Crystal Palace v Southampton
Liverpool v Leeds United
West Ham United v Newcastle United
West Bromwich Albion v Leicester City
Tottenham Hotspur v Everton
Sheffield United v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Brighton & Hove Albion v Chelsea

Other fixtures are postponed.

Alrighty let’s have a crack at this:

Draw
Pool
Draw
Leicester
Spurs
Wolves
Chelsea

How about ladder predictions?

1. Liverpool (Not by as much, I think City and Chelsea have closed the gap somewhat)
2. Man City
3. Chelsea
4. Man United (We haven’t closed the gap as much as I would hope, even if we do get Sancho, a CB and LB, we’re still to far behind Liverpool and City. Chelsea’s recruitment has been unreal)
5. Everton (they’re due a decent year)
6. Spurs
7. Wolves
8. Leicester (I think they’re on the slide)
9. Arsenal (Gabriel is a good signing though)
10. Sheffield United
11. Newcastle
12. West Ham
13. Southampton
14. Burnley
15. Crystal Palace
16. Leeds (Will annoyingly survive)
17. Aston Villa (skin of their teeth again, if they keep hold of Grealish they stay up, if they lose him and don’t replace him properly, they go down)
18. Brighton (It’s finally time for them I think, they’ve had a great run in the EPL)
19. WBA (Sorry Chadley)
20. Fulham (Nice of them to pay a quick visit)

Oh well guys like it or lump it Gunners just dominated our 1st game last night, no reason to say stuff like "It was only Fulham", we played well, Willian & Gabriel both had blinders in their 1st games for us. Arteta is on his way to getting us back up I've got a feeling. Liverpool didn't dominate against another newly promoted club themselves, you could probably say they had a shocker in fact.

After watching them against Liverpool where does everyone see Leeds running? I’ve got them surviving, I rate Bielsa.

Have to say I was expecting a first up loss for us last night but pleased with how we held our own in the first half.

Unfortunately some poor marking and even poorer defending gifted them 3 goals.

We are in for a very looooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnggggggggg season.

Has anyone gone through a whole EPL season without getting a point even?

Maybe. But unless we get some more personnel in we could easily botch it.

I’m expecting Fulham to have a Derby County like year in the Prem. But then again people were saying that about Sheffield United last year and they were hanging around near the top 4 for most of the season. You never know.

I was having a laugh about it, wasn't going all defensive or such about it. Probably shouldn't have said it like that though sorry.

Haha this guy. You’re too nice mate, what are you apologising for

I’ll go ahead and say it though... it was only Fulham

What can anyone tell me about ex Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic?

He has just signed a one year deal with us but at 36 years of age, is he past it?

Also looks like we’re about to finalise a loan deal for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, anyone know anything about him also?
