      Who Will Finish In Top 4/6 And Where?
      Sep 02, 2023 05:38:00 pm
      Transfer window closed and now it’s prediction time again. 🤷‍♂️


      Think we can all agree the summer window has been one to remember in so many ways which certainly not for the good of football, least that’s how I see it anyway. The Oily’s continue to pinch premier league players and for some reason have a fetish for Liverpool  ex/players. Anyone got a genuine reason why you think this is?

      Man City 1st.
      Unfortunately I don’t see any change at the top. Once again I see City breaking yet another record and getting 4  PL titles on the bounce. 🤮 Surprisingly a few players left which is confusing when you consider how well they play. Again they have the strongest squad by a distance even though Arsenal had the best summer window out of all the clubs. When injuries strike ( more so after Christmas) they continue to have the ammunition to replace players that would get into any of the top 6 teams. I’d give anything for City not to make it 4 on the bounce, if that means you lot picking them up before the  post so be it.

      Arsenal 2nd.
       Anyone who supports Arsenal will be very pleased with the players they’ve brought in the summer transfer window. Lego head did a great job last year and even though many reckon they bottled it will most certainly learn from the encounter. I think it will be a little tighter this year but for me improved ( on paper ) more than any other club in the transfer market.

      3rd/4th/5th/6th I may as well buy a lottery ticket as I simply don’t really know. Looking at the candidates it’s no surprise I have Liverpool/Man Utd/Newcastle/Chavs battling it out.

      At one stage ( based on transfers ) I thought Liverpool were looking good for 3rd till the chavs came and gazumped a couple of your targets. This has caused you to panic buy a couple of players that I don’t think fit into your team that will suit what Klopp is looking for. What’s really surprising is that you haven’t got a CB that could join VVD or replace if he picks up an injury throughout the season.
      Big improvements in the midfield ( couldn’t be any worse than last year) and none better than Snob, short for Szoboszlia. Endo from what little I’ve seen looks nothing more than a sub player. Given a choice Gravenberch or Amrabat it’s the latter everyday of the week, and no not just because we got him, he’s simply a better player.

      Man Utd.
      Not a great  transfer window for me, granted we were handicapped by FFP but wasn’t the window I expected. Missing out on Kane was a sickner to say the least. For me it was our No1 priority and we got it wrong. I don’t know that much about Hojlund and basically don’t take much notice of you tube like so many do as it never shows the good/bad/ugly, just the good. Hell even I can make Maguire look 100 million dollar by selective set pieces/games. United certainly can’t win the league but if I put rose tints on 😎 maybe top 4.

      Newcastle.
      I don’t think Eddie Howe can take them much further, don’t get me wrong he’s done a great job but could be his last year as boss. Don’t think the transfer window has really improved them but probably still get in top 6. They could well be found wanting this year, especially with CL football in the mix followed by the Europa Cup.

      Chavs.
      What can we say about this lot? Basically a new team from No 1 to No 11. I should imagine it’s going to take a while for this team to gel but approaching Christmas we may see them start to enjoy a near 1 billion in transfers over the last few months. Hard to see them not at least getting top 6.

      Outsiders for top 6 Aston Villa.

      That’s how I see it looking at the players that’s arrived and the squads they have

      Not a problem Pj just surprised you put Liverpool 2nd which makes me think you thought Liverpool had a better transfer window than Arsenal. ?

      Can't see anyone catching City with the horse fella up front. And you know something is wrong when a team has a £78m CB as their back up.

      I think it will then be us or Arsenal, both have our defensive frailties so unlikely to push City all the way.

      Fourth - fook knows. I'd probably say Man U but it will be a real dogfight. Potentially could have Spurs or Brighton applying pressure never mind Chelsea or Newcastle.

      Arsenal flattered to deceive last season...Arteta is a busted flush, a total chancer...Keepers rubbish and some of his players are way over hyped, for example Martinelli. Spurs have better balance across the squad, together with a manager who is obviously well thought of and he'll get a tune out of those players.

      City look good again. Known for slow starts and here they sit with 12 from 12. I think they will win it unless they get a couple more joining De Bruyne on the treatment table.

      I think us, United, Arsenal and Spurs will be locked closely together. Spurs one to look out for with no European football. Chelsea have again splashed money in the wrong areas whilst I think European football will hurt Newcastle, Brighton and Villa (although all three will still do well and take plenty of points from the 'big 6')
