Football predictions

Time for my annual speculation, in the form of a table with added notes

1. ManU [1]
2. Chelsea [2]
3. Man C
4. Liverpool [3]
5. Arsenal
6. Spurs
7. Everton [4]
8. Fulham
9. Sunderland
10. Villa
11. WBA
12. Newcastle
13. Bolton
14. Stoke
15. Naarwich [5]
16. Wolves
17. Wigan
18. Blackburn [6]
19. Swansea
20. QPR

Didn't do too badly last year - I thought that Hodgson would be more successful at Liverpool, and I didn't expect WHam to be such a disaster, but reasonable. Anyhow:

[1] They are the team to beat - by some distance. I hope SAF retires soon.
[2] Blind optimism.
[3] Highly dependent on Andy Carroll being injury-free.
[4] Not much to choose, as always, between the next several teams.
[5] Paul Lambert is obviously an excellent manager, simple as that.
[6] More blind optimism.

  1. I don't think I can argue much with that (apart from wishing that SAF had the gift of immortality)....perhaps push Sunderland a bit higher and put Norwich at the bottom (I watched them v Boro last season before Boro revived and they looked merely a good Championship side).

    I am biased- I like Man Utd- but I still see 'English' teams not being up to much in Europe.
