    That looks a pretty educated guess to me - cant see that being far wrong next May

    A little predictable but mainly a likely outcome

    Dont agree with Blackburn oir Man City or Birmingham or Charlton


    Blackburn will be safely in mid table
    Man City might have a flirt with relegation
    Birmingham will have a good year
    and my hunch is that Charlton will go down along with Wigan and West Ham

    Its always difficult to call the mid table. The top places are pretty much sorted, the bottom 5 will be fairly easy to find.

    I think those bottom 5 may very well end up as the bottom 5 in May, possibly with Fulham in the mix too. I think Charlton will be safe, but - unless Newcastle get the finger out they may be dragged into the relegation battle.

    I disagree, Man City are the strongest they have been for many years, I cant see us being anywhere near relegation, especially when pointswise, last season we had the best form in the Premiership over the last quarter of the season. Unfortunately it was too little too late.

    I see Charlton as a well established side, not bad enough to go down, but not good enough to do anything spectacular.

    Birmingham may have a good year, but City played pathetic against them in the home fixture last season, but still managed to slaughter them 3-0? Im not convinced, thats why ive put them in the bottom half.

    I reckon that if Man city get off to a good start they will be ok; if they struggle, though, the temptation to cash in on Wright Phillips could become a little too strong. I'd like to think that Sunderland will be strong enough to consolidate this season, but only time will tell, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Blackburn really up against it this year.

    Pish, if you ask me. West Ham'll never finish THAT high.

    I think if Man City don't get off to a good start Pearce might find it hard going and surely Charlton will have a bad start at some point and with thier shocking end of seasons they could well struggle.

    What price Wigan staying up - have they spent any of this £40 million yet?

    A biased Gooner perhaps, but Chelsea's bubble will, I feel, burst. Mourinho is not that great a manager in my book. A number of teams outplayed Chelsea last season but didn't get the breaks. You earn your luck, maybe, but I feel Chelsea have used up most of theirs. I'd put Chelsea third and then it's between the usual suspects, Arsenal and Man Utd for first and second. Too close to call.

    Liverpool 4th, Aston Villa 5th, Everton 6th, Man City 7th. Mid table will be the usual much of a muchness and for me, Sunderland, West Brom and Wigan to go down. West Ham may well surprise a few, maybe even some of their own supporters!

    I think Man Utd will have all players fit and a year more experienced and will just pip Chelsea who will be so keen on the Champions league.
    Martin Jol has a good young squad at Spurs and if he can keep all of his strikers happy they may well have a good season (I hope so anyway).
    Liverpool will still be inconsistent but will have the advantage of their early forays into Europe ensuring they are 'match fit' at the beginning of the season and can 'hit the ground running.
    Arsenal's oldies are a year older and their youngsters may have 'second season syndrome' (I hope).
    At the other end, West Ham were lucky to go up and have minimal money to strengthen their squad. Portsmouth have no management motivator and probably won't have Yakubu either. West Brom were lucky to stay up and as Robson seems to think that Earnshaw is not a good player because he only scores goals they will go down.
    Curbishley has lost Charlton and they will struggle but I think Wigan may have a rocky start but will pick up once their strikers come to terms with the Premiership.

    There seems to be more and more mid-lower table teams each season i.e. no chance of top 6/7 but flirting with relegation several times during the season ans all picking up points off each other.

    Man Utd
    Chelsea
    Tottenham
    Liverpool
    Arsenal
    Newcastle
    Bolton
    Middlesborough
    Everton
    Man City
    Fulham
    Aston Villa
    Birmingham
    Blackburn
    Sunderland
    Wigan
    Charlton
    Portsmouth
    West Ham
    West Brom

    Chelsea - It will be another season before the rest catch up
    Arsenal - still too strong for the rest
    Man Utd - Clearly the 3rd of the elite 3
    Liverpool - Still far too inconsistent to challenge seriously
    Bolton - Another year of superb over acheivement let by Allerdyce
    Middlesborough - solid enough to stay above mid table
    Newcastle - Dodgy, needs to stabilise
    Tottenham - On the way up
    Birmingham - Mid table security, not enough strength in depth to challenge.
    Man City - Too inconsistent
    Aston Villa - Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    Charlton - Good players with a point to prove, but always drop off at the end of he season
    Everton - Last year was a flash in the pan, Europe will take it's toll
    Fulham - On the way back down, next season perhaps.
    Portsmouth - No direction
    Blackburn - Just not enough quality
    Sunderland - Will just about stay up this season
    West Brom - Not enough quality
    West Ham - Lucky to be up, Pardew will finally go after Christmas
    Wigan - No chance of staying the distance, the odd fluke is the best they can expect.

    IMHO.

    Oh yeah, and the Terriers to take the League 1 title. :biggrin:

    Yeah point taken - looking at it again I probably have placed Villa a bit low, although I don't think they'll have a good season. I'm gonna stick with my Newcastle placing though!
