The title race is gonna be another tight one. Couldn't say who I think'll come out on top, but it's definitely between Man U, Chelsea and Liverpool again.

As for the drop;

Burnley/Wolves
Portsmouth
Wigan ()

Man Utd
Liverpool
Chelsea

And then i'm lost. I don't fancy Arsenal to do great unless they make some more signings, i'm not sure Everton will continue with as well as they were doing, Villa's side has weakened and Man City will be lower top half.

Relegation

Portsmouth
Stoke
Burnley

The bottom end is going to be tight again I think, I could see any of the 3 promoted teams going back down again and I think Hull, Wigan and Pompey could struggle. I'm hoping for a better season for us this season but we could be in another relegation struggle this season too. Hopefully Bruce can get 'em organised and bring in some quality as we had plenty of workers last season but not much else.

So long as you don't pinch Paul Scharner as well you have my best wishes

Seriously though, Steve Bruce is the man to keep you up. He turned Wigan from a laughing stock into an established Premier League side (aka not quite as drastic a laughing stock), so he'll do you good.

Yeah I think so too. I think he's the right man for the job. There were some stupid people aiming way too high when it came to who they wanted Quinny to appoint as a new manager but all we need is stability really. We could still easily find ourselves in the bottom 3 this season so i'm hoping he gets 'em organised and sticks around long enough for us to get a few seasons behind us.

And its Cattermole he's after. You can keep him though

Whoever plays excruciatingly dull football can go down as far as I'm concerned.

So in other words Stoke & Bolton can fuck off.

Haha, thanks I'm yet to be impressed by Cattermole as well. I'd sooner see him go than Scharner, seeing as he's immense and all (or at least he will be Martinez plays him in centre-mid as he should be).

Ah, Bolton, forgot about them (says everything eh). Horrible team. Unfortunately I live a mile or two down the road from the Reebok as well. You'd know they had possession from all the high balls you'd see from my flat as well.

Haven't they changed the name of that place recently?
To something even more ridiculous...

Following Fergie's "small club, small metality" dig at Citeh over the weekend, today at work was fun. Never seen so many irate Citeh fans, seething and positively pissed off.
Not bad for a Monday.

I have no idea, but it wouldn't surprise me. I only pay any real attention to the Wanderers when they're playing Wigan. Even if I wanted to go one weekend, my flat there's on Derby Street, so Horwich is a hell of a way to go to watch a bunch of people pretend to play football. Place is a deathtrap as well, which doesn't exactly help its case.
