    Premier League 2021-22

    Season begins next week ……

    Expecting City to win the league again this year with Liverpool and Chelsea fighting it out for 2nd place.

    United to clinch 4th and Leicester, Spurs Everton etc to fill the normal 4-10 spots.

    Probably right with your top four, but I expect to see Utd challenge too. I'm hoping my lot get themselves back on track, though.

    Think the most interesting thing this season is gonna be Liverpool. Was last season a blip or are they genuinely on the slide? They were an absolute machine for previous 2 seasons. Expect city will do it again, pushed for a while by Man U and Chelsea before they both fall away.

    I’m a toon fan so won’t be too concerned about going’s on in the top half of the table - another long hard season ahead

    Hard to say till window closed but hard to see city not winning. United really depends on new signings settling in well. Liverpool need a winjaldum replacement as midfield not getting younger. Chelsea depends who the buy and the the usual below.

    Much was made of VVD’s absence but the front 3 weren’t the force they were. Henderson and Milner a year older.

    Klopp has to win something this season. Playing attractive football is fine but the owners want trophies.

    CFC supporter here and if we sign Neddy oh sorry Lukaku so be it but not convinced and about twice IMO what he is worth but my gut feels MU could do it do not see us winning the league.
    Sky sports saying a deal in principle for Neddy at £98. million madness

    Arsenal fan here. I’m hoping for a decent challenge for spot 6 we’re a big way behind the city, United, Chelsea and still Leicester are a better side right now, but depending on where Kane ends up that puts Spurs a viable team to finish above

    The league this year will be largely determined on who does best in the transfer market imo

    City have strengthened as have United. Spurs might lose Kane but will likely spend money if he goes. It’s very quiet on Merseyside which must be worrying for the fans.

    My prediction: City, United, Chelsea, Leicester

    Premier League 2021-22

    United and Chelsea looking annoyingly strong, as do Leicester. City as always spent big and favs for the top spot.

    I hope the mighty reds are back to their best, konate looks good and Naby looks sharper. Thiago looked settled by the end of the season.

    Just hope Virgil is back at his best. Top 4 and CL would be my preference, a few strong teams this year.

    I think the most important thing for Liverpool is they have a settled side. We don’t really need to spend big or bring in many new players, we needed to strengthen in defence and we have done this.

    I expect one or two new players to come in but Liverpool are waiting on a few to move on to clear the decks as well as a few young players going out on loan.

    Probably a new striker to replace Origi and/or another midfield player but Jones and Elliot look like being prompted to the first team this season.

    One better this year please

    City were better than the Man City B team yesterday and I enjoyed getting another bit of silverware!

    Horrible injury to Fofana (gutted for him) leaves us a little light at the back…. Suspect we’ll get some cover

    We have strengthened quite a bit and not lost anyone…. Daka seems like a coup…. Soumare was born to play in the PL…. Bertrand gives some steadiness and experience in the back four

    Harvey Barnes to have a standout season too I hope

    City, Chelsea, United and Liverpool. I can't see any other team in the top 4 places but they really could finish in any order this season imo. Obviously depends on how they do against each other and which team can go away to Arsenal, Spurs and Leicester and get all 9 points on offer.

    Go Brentford! Chuffed for them - having expected them to be the whipping boys this season. Arsenal have City and Chelsea next so that's an uphill struggle

    Arteta could be gone by Halloween at this rate. One of the poorest Arsenal teams I’ve seen in years.

    Delia? Hope she’s cooking.

    Meanwhile it looks like we’re going to be bottom at the end of the weekend!

    Overall happy when considering the opposition keeper is worth more than our whole squad and two Brazilian international players on as subs.

    Matched Liverpool in the first but the lack of fitness (pre season knocked due to Covid) in the second showed.

    New signings looked promising and it will of course take a few matches to bed in.

    Also Klopp was not happy and the team were at each other in the first half. I really was expecting more from Liverpool, fans were silent until they scored.

    My money has gone on Chelsea. I think Lukaku might be the difference.

    I was at the Chelsea game, in the away end, I am a Palace supporter. I agree that if Lukaku settles in to their team better than he did the first time around that they could well be champions this year.

    Don't get the Lukaku thing, watched him for 2 years at United and he was really poor, his individual goal record was good, but he contributed to United playing really bad football, his first touch is awful, Everton fans say the same, individual goal tally good but none of them miss him.

    Gone to Italy, scored goals in a poor league, for a counter attacking team and suddenly he's giving Chelsea the edge

    I don’t think it’s quite as simple as that.

    With the right sort of system, he’ll score and contribute.

    He needs to be leading the line, as a target man.

    United don’t play with a system like that.

    He wouldn’t fit in City or Liverpool’s systems either, but on paper at least, it could work at Chelsea.

    Spurs deserved winner over 90 minutes. Thankfully a season is 38 games. I’m sure most City fans will be hoping City go on the same sort of run as they did last season after losing away to Spurs.

    City are still odds on. It now boils down to how wisely you spend your money, and some are “given” more money than most
    Not the road I want to see football go.
    It’ll be UTD v City Premier League game played in Beijing within 10-20 years.

    If I had any influence at City I’d let Kane stay put at Spurs, play the season getting the most out of Torres as a striker and then go all in for Haaland next season.

    I'm not convinced grealish is going to work, he slows the game down to walking pace and gets fouled alot. This worked for Aston villa as they would load up the box and put the defending team under pressure, this is the complete opposite to the way city play. kdb took the game by the scruff once he came on

    After we (Arsenal) lose the next 2 games, maybe pick up a few points Norwich and Burnley and then lose to spurs Arteta must get sacked, at that stage we would be hovering above the relegation zone. None of the players even look remotely bothered. The sooner the better, since Arteta took over we are on the worst run in our history, he has made terrible mistakes - selling our best keeper to Villa and keeping Leno was one of the worst. Yet in the press he gets a fairly easy ride, if you consider the flank Ole got at Utd and they are actually doing well!!

    Please sack Arteta soon.

    For the titles, it could be close this year between City, Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea.

    Yesterday’s City bench alone cost over £350m.

    Love the hoodoo Spurs have at home to City and just wish we could be similarly consistent against lesser teams.

    Nuno has certainly done well to date, with a solid pre-season and now this... I'm happy that we've been written off by the pundits, and you never know.

    Yesterday we had some supreme performances (Tanganga, Sanchez, Moura, Skipp, Son) and that was without Harry or any of our new boys; remember, Romero was lauded as the best central defender in Italy last season, and Gill is a diamond.

    All in all, I think we're on the up again. Top four in this league is a big ask for any side, though.

    Good start for your boys too, Neil!

    Completely different with fans back and VAR has improved considerably already.

    Can’t remember a start to the season where all games ended in wins.
