Why is Fulham rated as high as is? They’ve signed no one and lost their best young player
They did blitz the championship last season.

Not that that always counts for everything but it surely counts for something.

Seven points less than Norwich season before.
With 31 more goals scored.

I'm not missing your point, I just think there should be more optimism around Fulham than a Forest for instance.

Personally I believe this may be Spurs' season for a number of reasons:
  • Conte wins titles in his second season at wherever he goes. He is a top class manager
  • Spurs have had a huge transfer window
  • There's some minor transition at Liverpool / City
  • Kane & Son aren't getting any younger. Can see them both putting a huge season in while they are still at the top of their games.
For me all these factors lining up could see Spurs winning the title this season.

Conte actually won the title in his first year at Chelsea - with a 43 point turnaround! But it followed one of those weird recent Mourinho seasons where he seemed to sabotage his team. Chelsea had won the league 8 points clear the season before, so you could say it was return to form.

Looking at Spurs incoming players I think they have mostly added depth rather than improved the quality of their first 11. At their best they can beat anyone. They took 6 points off City last season. But they are inconsistent. They lost the 4 games against Chelsea and United, and also lost games to Burnley, Brighton, Southampton, Wolves and Palace. In total they lost 11 games. City lost 3, Liverpool 2.

It would be good to see Spurs challenge for top spot but I think with Haaland firing City might be even more dominant.

Yeah I don't see the need to gang up on Jod. This is a discussion forum and he is allowed to have his opinion (which he gives good reasons for expressing)

I dont reckon Spurs have any hope of winning the league this season and it's not because they arent a good side or havent recruited well or havent got a top class manager. But it's just harder to win the league nowadays than at any other time before.

Usually it was 80-85 points will get you a very good chance to win the league. Now 90+ is bare minimum. The last six seasons the winner has had 93, 86, 99, 98, 100 and 93. Man City have only gotten better buying arguably the best young striker in world football.

Spurs have lost double digit games in all of the past three seasons. Can Spurs suddenly jump to the ridiculous consistency levels you now need to compete or win the league? Not so quickly IMO. It can be done, we did it to compete with City but it was a gradual build to get to where were at.

I think Spurs should look to close to gap, get 85ish points and try to only lose 5-6 games. Then build on that the following season to reduce those losses to 1-2 to get in the range of being able to win a PL title.

Their recent failures have been due to shite recruitment (Bale money spending spree) and signing managers like Mou & Nuno.

Now they have Conte and have had a great transfer window. That combined with a Kane rennaisance could see them win the league for sure. The stars are certainly lining up for it.

No chance IMO. City will get 100 points this season and I cant see Spurs beating that.

This is very well thought out and reasoned.

I think it'll be City low 90's, Liverpool mid to late 80's and then Spurs late 70's.

There's definitely a chance for Spurs this season. Son & Kane firing at their best plus a whole lot of new signings and an actual class manager who gets results. It would be remiss to write them off.


City are also in a minor transition, as are we. I highly doubt either team will get many more points than last season.

Why are people so off Chelsea to even make top 4? I know they lost Rudiger but Koulibaly is a good replacement and they’ve brought in Sterling who is a level above the likes of Pulisic and Ziyech.

I was really interested to hear TT talking about how he thinks they'll start slow/be off the pace early. Didn't sound promising to me.
