Hmm I think I may agree with you Bulldog.

I was expecting QPR to be well adrift at the bottom too, but they have made some great signings and I know they are struggling to put the ball in the net recently but they should be fine. They have been playing some good football.

I expect Bolton to struggle too.

I can see Man City running out of steam half way through the season with Mancini to be sacked before the season is over.

1st Man utd
2nd Chelsea
3rd Man City
4th Tottenham

So it's the big North London derby this sunday. Arsenal have had a shocking start to the season but I reckon they'll perform this weekend.

Would have to disagree. They'll be fine.

All I can say is there must be a hell of a lot of sides splitting in Southampton right now.
Oh, how you must have reacted upon Andy Carroll's signing.

I agree that United will run away with it, they've been **** hot recently.

My Top 10 would be;

1. Man Utd
2. Man City
3. Chelsea
4. Arsenal
5. Liverpool
6. Tottenham
7. Aston Villa
8. Stoke
9. Everton
10. Newcastle

Who do you think will go down?
Replace Spurs with Arsenal I think and I think Stoke (as already seen) will suffer due to the Europa league.

To go down:

Wigan (sorry Bulldog!)
QPR (too much too soon in terms of new finances)
Blackburn.

I don't expect them to go down, I expect Swansea, Norwich and Blackburn to go down. But if any of those teams can rally then I think Wigan and Bolton could be close to the drop.

Wigan are definitely in the mix this year, but let's face it, they have been every year they've been in the top flight. Even if we're on our worst run since Chris Hutchings was in charge, I still fully expect us to claw our way out of trouble by the end of it.

Unfortunately for the promoted sides this season, as teams like Blackpool, Hull and Burnley found out before them, the season lasts until next May and not December. I reckon QPR will easily stay up, with canary and swan alike battling it out in the relegation places over winter.

I guess we'll see.

Always hard to pick the bottom three and its easy to go with the obvious (the promoted sides) I think two will stay up.

(Bottom Three)
Norwich or Swansea
Wigan
Blackburn
