We'd need to be in the relegation zone for Lamps to be sacked.

Surprised people are picking us. We didn't improve and backing up last season again will be difficult and city are so so good. I think we will finish 2nd but be further back this season.

How many times has a title winning team spent a negative amount in the transfer window? It would be a miracle for us to get anywhere near City this season at this stage for me. Spurs are the darkhorse, if they get Lo Celso and Sessegnon then its on like donkey kong for them.

Have you lost any players?

If not you'll be there abouts again.

So far we've made just under 38mil from Ings, Mignolet, Camacho and Adekanye. (Including getting 2mil for loaning out Grujic)

Lost Sturridge and Moreno on frees.

Bought Van Den Berg for 4.4mil and Elliott (fee not announced yet, probable tribunal fee of between 3-10mil).

Nope. Just stating what we've done. I myself am not too concerned with transfers this summer but I can understand peoples thoughts on constantly wanting to improve every year.
Was just trying to see if the squad would be any weaker than the record breaking runners up. Doesn't look like it

After seeing some more signings come through and pre season results I've made some changes to my initial thoughts. Gap from 6-7th will be very small

He won't cost you that much, he's only 16.

One of my favourite games this one. The implosion when you realised you’ve choked when you had your best chance (and lets be honest only) to win the league.

So in other words my first prediction is that Tottenham will choke in some capacity this season. Just want to get a stating the obvious one out the way first before I produce my long awaited and valued predictions.

the human rights abuse merchants to win it again - pep to wear his yellow ribbon or whatever it is though so it's all forgiven.

magic lamps to steer the chelsea ship and their crap squad to an amazing second place. complete with a villa reject up front who cant score from anywhere further than 4 yards out and folds like a bitch in pressure games.

villa will push city all the way but without the fitness 'regime' of city we won't be able to go with them. note the term 'regime' and then picture lance armstrong.

klopp to act like a nutjob all season long on the sidelines to cater to the delusions and stupidity of his supporter base. 'good guy' (but really deranged pyschopath) klopp to retain his image as the loveable drunk uncle on the sidelines. worth 4th place.

united's position might be surprising but I think they'll surpass expectations and the training wheels of their hopeless manager and finish 12th.
