      Who's going to win Premier League 21/22
      Aug 13, 2021 09:51:55 am
      Well the time has come. Arsenal kick off the Premier League tonite and don't even make the poll such their downfall over recent years.

      My take as follows...

      Last year I had it a two horse race, you lot! & City. As we all know due to your horrendous injury problems it became a one horse race. Sadly I certainly see that this year. With City's improvements (( Grealish, Kane / or striker still pending )) I just can't see them losing it over 38 games. Voting with my head it's City. Awesome squad with a world class manager.

      Chavs...
      Another team to improve their squad during transfer window. With a striker the missing link in Chavs armour is Lukaku the answer? I have my doubts. I only see him as a 20 goal a season man at best in the league. Will that be enough? I have my doubts. However, with Tuchel going into his second season and knows the players that bit better they could be the most improved side going forward. They've sold/released/freed 25 players to fund the Lukaku transfer.

      Leicester...
      Leicester being Leicester no doubt they will be in the top six again such the consistency of manager Brenda Rogers (( Future manager of United  :f_whistle: )) Obviously can't compete with the top clubs for bringing record signings in they will probably finish 5/6th again.


      Liverpool...
      With just the one addition signing in Konate ( so far ) is that enough? afraid not. No doubting Liverpool's first 11 would be up their to challenge City but with this now squad game becoming paramount due to City's squad size I just don't see how they can sustain a challenge over 38 games with the current squad.


      Man United...
      They've been active during the summer transfer with the signings of Sancho & Varane. Is that enough to make them Champions this season? Sadly not. It's a big improvement for sure but still won't be enough, not forgetting Ole still at the realm. United so far got rid of 10 players in some shape or form to support new signings. A cup competition win is a must, otherwise Ole has used up his 9 life's. 

      So basically long story short, Cith cruise the league and probably Chavs second. With United improving their squad think we will be fighting it out with you lot for 3rd.  ;D

      Not sure how our squad is any different than when we won it Keith tbh . It will come down a lot to injuries for me and if we can keep the injuries to a minimum especially to key players we are in with a shot. And I guess the same applies to the others also

      It's no different Rosey and that's why I said you'll go close with your starting 11. However, when you won the league you did very well with little injuries. injury free 100% you'd be the closest rivals to City's crown. 

      Ps.. Forgot to mention Firmino had a good season when you won the league. For his standards been very poor since.

      They definitely should be walking it again this time around. Its a ridiculously strong squad and cant be taken seriously from an integrity point of view. And yet they continue to laugh in the face of FFP

      Obviously I want Liverpool to win and believe we can, but my pick of the rest are Chelsea, think Lukaku will be massive for them and isn’t getting the respect he deserves, especially from rival teams, Man Utd fans are laughing at the transfer as if it’s their version of Lukaku they’ve scored, he was sh*te there because of the team, think he’ll thrive at Chelsea.

      At 5/1 I think a decent bet too.

      The top 4 will level up to a degree by force of spending power but I still fancy us or City to win it and the difference could be the odd injury, a bit of luck, temporary loss of form or the margin of squad depth. That's why I'm hoping we add before the window closes.

       I think Chelsea have a bit of work to do despite having strong foundations and I'd never back the Munts to win it under Solskjaer no matter how much money they spend. I hope we wipe the floor with the lot of them of course. We probably would if we have an injury free season.

      Strange that every pundit and fan youtuber has us in third or fourth when this is the same team that got 99 points and won the CL. How can they not see what an anomalous freak last season was?  Swap Gini for Thiago, add Jota and account for improving fringe players Keita and and Minamino ( that first touch in pre season! ) and great young talents in Elliott and Kaide Gordon and I can only feel positive. I believe the team that finishes above us will need close to 100 points and the only one capable of that is City, obviously. Despite their signings Chelsea and United are still turds.

      Leeds might be a surprise this season. Their last ten games were top four form, and the whole second half of their season was impressive. Bielsa tweaked the system into a less frenetic, basketball style yet still maintained attacking aggression. Hope they can give the Mancs a bloody nose tomorrow.

      All the money has been spent by Chelsea Utd City so all things being equal they all have big pressure on them to deliver.

      And yet our team is very strong with last seasons lack of centre halves addressed in this window.

      We are complete to give it a go despite 2 consecutive seasons of net profits.

      Chelsea have strengthened well.
      And I think it’s them or us. Even with a couple of injuries we have a strong squad.

      City not having a quality striker is a big miss for them.

      United have a weak midfield. Plus it’ll be interested to see how ronaldo fits in.

      Tottenham just crumble like origami as soon as pressure builds.

      Leicester will be lucky to get top 5.

      And arsenal, And I’m sticking my neck out here, I don’t think they will do it.

      Tough one to call

      How for example do utd fit Cavani Ronaldo Pogba Fernandez Rashford and Greenwood into the system? Could go brilliant or could implode if 2 or 3 get the nose put out of joint

      Chelsea. Assume they will play to Lukaku. He was easily controlled by us, will other teams, at least top 6 be able to do that to them. Tuchel, like all managers will have his iffy spell how will they react?

      City. Been there and donebit but not the European cup, surely thatll be the big focus..Have they added enough to push on? Yes Grealish in but no replacement for Aguero

      And us. We will be more driven but will thaat be enough? Our best 11 is Arguably the best 11 in the league but what if Mane does not get back to his best, what if we lost Mo for a spell?

      Very close. Wont be anything in it and likely to come down to the games between each other and who drops least points to bottom half clubs.

      Ill go for us, just

      I’ve backed us but our reliance on the front 3 could go pear shaped if we get unlucky with injuries…

      I’d like to see our midfielders & CB’s chip in with some goals…

      City won the league without a striker last year Bob. They can win it again this year without one unfortunately. They can score from anywhere.

      Chavs  looking like the biggest challengers to City for me.

      Voted Liverpool of course. Obviously there's every possibility that we won't, but I'm very confident that we'll be right in the mix. Don't buy into this sh*te about us being "left behind" because Man City have spunked £100M on an England benchwarmer and Chelsea have spent more or less the same on a pudding who got swerved by United. The same Chelsea, might I add, who still finished below us last season whilst we had Nat Phillips at centre half and a non existent midfield.

      Don't reckon United will be in the running come April. Just don't see Solskjaer as a manager who can succesfully navigate a title win at the best of times, let alone during an era where he'll have to come up against two sides who have proved on more than one occasion they're able to throw together a + 95 point season. United have some brilliant players and could beat anyone on their day, but I've got real doubts about them having the consistency needed to hit levels similar to what ourselves and City have hit these last few years.

      My personal feeling is that it'll be a coin toss between ourselves and City. Not to go all Keegan here, but I'd absolutely f**king love us to win it this season. I'm probably more up for this season than I was for 19/20. I'd absolutely love us to shut all the doubters up who have been wanking themselves off over big money signings and spending all summer trying to turn football into some sort of soap opera. Nothing would bring me more joy than seeing the reds get their heads down and absolutely blitz it again as it would make a mockery of the pantomime we've all had to endure over the last couple of months.

      I expect us to bounce back strongly and leave last season where it firmly belongs. This group has bounced back from setbacks numerous times (notably Kiev & missing out on the title by a point in 2019) so I don't doubt that they'll be able to put the second half of last season behind them and get back down to business.

      Up the reds!

      We haven’t stayed idle though mate. We’ve signed a new CB in our weakest area last season. We’ve also added Elliott to the first team. People could argue he’s a youngster and yet to prove himself, which is true but the same was said of Greenwood when he was first starting and now look at him, he’s carried the Mancs in the first 3 games this season and that’s with the 70mill addition of Sancho playing too…your best player so far is the academy graduate and one of the worst performing is Sancho (obviously it’s early days for Sancho but his first 3 games haven’t been what people expected).

      For our lack of business outside of that, City only signed Grealish…lost their first game.

      United signed Sancho for the start of the season and then added Varane and you got battered off the park for the majority of the Wolves game and really should’ve lost that game. Also drew with Saints after falling behind.

      In comparison with the 2 Manc teams, we have made the better start and looked the better team.

      Arsenal have proven that you can spend however much money you want but it’s not always about signing players. Sancho has been underwhelming so far, Grealish hasn’t really added anything to City that they didn’t already have, Lukaku in the biggest game of their season so far against us was nowhere to be seen.

      It’s a long season and it’s more important keeping your players available and fit than it is going out and signing X amount of players. Do I think we should’ve added another forward? Yes. Do I think it will cost us winning the league? Ask me nearer the end of the season.

      I’m not saying we are going to win the league because anything can happen. But just remember we finished 3rd last season, literally a few points behind you, beat yous lot and we were top going into the new year. All with a massively injury hit side all season so I wouldn’t be writing us off just yet when we have so many players available now that weren’t last time out, players that were part of the team that saw us win the league at an absolute canter.

      Many Liverpool  would disagree KK I fact very frustrated from what I've read on here.
      From what I've seen of Elliott so far is good, like you say though early days. Think most of us agree Greenwood definitely looking a good prospect but that's another story.

      Think Varane will prove money well spent but like I've already stated many times I've yet to see Sancho have a good game, especially in a England shirt. Jury defo out on him. All I hear from many is that he's special but I'm still waiting to see special.

      Greenwood like you say has carried us. United looked poor last two games. I've already stated don't think United can win the league. No doubt your best 11 can win the league. However, I just don't think you'll get basically a injury free season whereas you would fight for the top spot along with City & Chavs.

      Still think United & Liverpool will fight for the third spot.

      Many Liverpool  would disagree KK I fact very frustrated from what I've read on here.

      I think the frustration boils down to the extra attacker not coming in but at the same time, I can understand why it seems like we didn’t do anything at all because Konate was signed as soon as the season finished so the rest of the transfer window was dormant incomings but we definitely have strengthened an area that was vulnerable last season. Like I said previously, we won’t know until the season progresses whether or not we’ve made a mistake but so far, the signs are looking good, we’ve got virtually a fully fit squad and just have to take it game by game.

      In all honesty, we can pick holes in anyone’s team, I don’t think anyone has an exceptional bench. City have some boss midfield options but their defensive options leave a lot to be desired. United probably have the strongest bench in terms of attacking players with Cavani and Rashford or whoever but again, the defensive options are slim pickings. I think we have the strongest bench defensively with Gomez, Konate or Matip on it, along with Kostas, but outside of Jota or Firmino on the bench, we are lacking in the attack.
      Could go through every team, I don’t think any team has a bench where I think “wow” throughout the defence, midfield and attacking options on it.

      Let's be honest luck can play a huge part especially with injuries . Some teams are 1 or 2 injuries from not winning it such as Lukaku if he is injured for length of time some our boys were they could struggle. Suspensions etc in big games can all have a massive impact . We can win it if we have the rub of the green but the other 3 will say the same . Basically no one really knows so let's just see . I do think we are a forward light especially Afcon time

      I'll be a lot more confident if Mane and Firmino put in some good performances after the international break. Just worry we don't have enough goals in us otherwise.

      Jürgen, Pep, Tuchel, Ole.....one is not like the others.....

      Barring significant injuries to any Liverpool, City or Chelsea, i don't see how United can finish above any of those 3 teams. They have the worst coach of the 4 teams, by a wide margin.

      Question is, if Liverpool don’t win, which team (realistically) would irritate you all the least if they became champions?

      United?
      City?
      Chelsea?

      For me, it’s probably Chelsea. As I feel nothing for them at all. I used to detest them but they are insignificant to me now.
      City I can’t stand.
      United are natural rivals.

      City still yet to come out of the stalls but pretty standard for them at the beginning of a new season.

      Liverpool & United playing like a top 4 side from what I've seen from the rest of the league so far.

      Still sticking with City for the time being, it's  not if they go on a formidable unbeaten run its when. Chavs will be on their tails in case any slip ups.

      Chavs only got a draw against us because they played the 2nd half with a 9 man defence too.

      Chavs look good but a lot seems to be getting forgotten with their performances; Arsenal should’ve had a stonewall penalty at either 0-0 or 1-0 (can’t remember which), were largely on the back foot vs Villa, had to pack a 9 man defence against us after the red card and didn’t manage a single shot on target in the first half today.

      No team is playing perfectly and will have sketchy moments but a lot of people are making out as if the Chavs have been flawless so far. We’ve scored the same number of goals, conceded the same number and have the same number of points having played each other too so at the moment, after 5 games there is literally nothing between the 2 teams.

      Chavs were forced to play like they did due to the sending off KK, don't think it would of been by choice that's for sure. Remembering it was at Anfield it was a great result under the circumstances. Obviously no one plays perfect but their doing a great job under Tuchel.

      I don't like  admitting it but it's how I see it so far. Hopefully things will change. Just because teams are on the same points doesn't mean your basically as good though.

      Stop calling them chavs, it's insulting to the working class. Call them tw*ts.

      Keith's determination to build up anyone but us is going to hurt him in May.

      Question - Is Graham Potter a potential elite level manager? Sitting pretty with Brighton in third after an excellent start to the season. Consistently improving the performance of the players at his disposal and intelligent buys to strengthen the squad further. Plays elegant, technically and tactically good football (a refreshing anomaly to that of his contemporaries like Dyche).

      Without a doubt, he's miles ahead of any other English coach and would potentially be the manager that the England team deserve but don't currently have.

      Next game will clear this up. Chelsea vs Manchester City, whilst we play Brentford  ;D If Chelsea are still on top, fair play to them, and they become outright favourites..

      Won't clear anything up really, still early days no matter what the result.

      Not a chance Isaac.  ;D Chavs -cnuts - tw*ts it's all the same  ;D

      It's not a question of building anyone up. They've just played better than anyone else so far. Trust me I don't like saying it, if it was you lot! I'd say same thing. I just don't go round wearing those tinted glasses like many fans across the board do.

      I'm pretty sure I'll be building City up if/when they go on their run just like Liverpool, It's just a opinion on how I think it's been after the first 5 matches. Pretty sure my opinion will change throughout the season as form dwindles between the top 4.

      I'm just hoping I'm totally wrong about Ole and United  :lmao:

      Quote from 7-King Kenny-7
      Chavs only got a draw against us because they played the 2nd half with a 9 man defence too.

      Chavs look good but a lot seems to be getting forgotten with their performances; Arsenal should’ve had a stonewall penalty at either 0-0 or 1-0 (can’t remember which), were largely on the back foot vs Villa, had to pack a 9 man defence against us after the red card and didn’t manage a single shot on target in the first half today.

      No team is playing perfectly and will have sketchy moments but a lot of people are making out as if the Chavs have been flawless so far. We’ve scored the same number of goals, conceded the same number and have the same number of points having played each other too so at the moment, after 5 games there is literally nothing between the 2 teams.

      Despite that, we're playing for third spot atm and they're playing for first. ???  We're currently 15 league games unbeaten, but that doesn't ring a bell with him.

      When they came here, they had already started to park the bus by the time VAR had to step in and spot the cheat on the goalline.  After that, they never moved out of their own half. Tuchel is Mourinho minus the tantrums, yet. The last time a defensive minded coach won this league was Conte, and he's long gone by now.
