Sherwood to West Brom.
so it's not really on her terms, it's on his terms, because she isn't real.

Come and get it cumslingers!

|Massive season for the Baggies then. No manager, 11 players out of contract, world cup prices for decent players.|
|Baggies to go down next season please.|
|Sacking Steve Clarke was a strange move almost cost them their premier league spot.|

My man gives real loving that's why I call him Killer
He's not a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am, he's a thriller

|Sad to see the vultures circling Southampton .|
|They'll still be making £50m.|
|Every team is a vulture.|
|There'll have a tough job if Pochettino leaves. Could have a big rebuilding job if Shaw and Lallana go as expected.|
|Yeah all well and good having the money but some of those players will be hard to replace. I read that Spurs want Jay and Pochettino as well.|
|The Southamptons of this world will always lose the Shaws of this world, and the Lallanas of this world, to the Liverpools of this world and the Man Us of this world.|
|Sad though, and makes the possibility of anyone outside the top 5 clubs ever getting near them.|
This is usually a laugh in hindsight: Guardian writers' predictions for 2013/14|
Who will win the league?
David Hytner: Manchester United. It feels unfashionable to tip the defending champions but they were comfortably the best team last season, their squad remains virtually the same and have their rivals really caught up?
Louise Taylor: Tottenham. Europa League involvement and the potential loss of Gareth Bale are worries but Roberto Soldado and Paulinho look excellent signings and AVB is a class coach.
Who's going to be the player of the season?
Michael Cox: Juan Mata will come close if José Mourinho gives him creative freedom...
Louise Taylor: Hatem Ben Arfa. Providing he stays fit, Ben Arfa belongs on a different planet to most mortals. Capable of eclipsing Rooney, Bale and even Suárez.
How about signing of the season?
Michael Cox: Ricky van Wolfswinkel is the bigger name, but Leroy Fer may adapt more easily to English football at Norwich.
Dominic Fifield: Paulinho's arrival at Tottenham, even at £17m, still feels like a coup given the calibre of sides that had pursued the Brazilian at Corinthians.
Andy Hunter: Roberto Soldado. The striker who can take Tottenham back into the Champions League and enhance André Villas-Boas's reputation in English football in the process.
Jacob Steinberg: Roberto Soldado will show Emmanuel Adebayor what's up.
Daniel Taylor: Nicolas Anelka. He's 34 now but he's looked sharp in pre-season, he's a free transfer and West Brom need a goalscorer without Romelu Lukaku and, probably, Peter Odemwingie.
Louise Taylor: Paulinho. A sort of Brazilian Frank Lampard, his ability to score freely from midfield promises to transform Spurs.
Young player to watch?
Daniel Taylor: Ravel Morrison at West Ham. A gamble, perhaps, but probably should be in England's Under-21s already. He's had an impressive pre-season and showing new signs of maturity.
Manager to watch?
Andy Hunter: David Moyes. He's taken on the hardest job in English football, faces a gruelling start and will get no credit for grinding out wins. But he can deliver if he, and United, adapt to different expectations.
Daniel Taylor: Michael Laudrup. Apologies to all Swans, but another good season and it's easy to see him being lured to a bigger club.
Louise Taylor: Paolo Di Canio. The self-styled "revolutionary" is clever enough to confound his many critics and lead a reborn Sunderland into the top 10.
|Louise Taylor should be hanging her head in shame for those predictions.|
Hers are always amazing. The previous year's set:|
Who'll win the league?
Louise Taylor: Chelsea. Winning trophies promises to become a habit for Roberto Di Matteo. Roman Abramovich will be stuck with him.
Who's first for the chop?
Louise Taylor: Sam Allardyce. Philosophical fault lines could start to really show in a relegation struggle at Upton Park.
Best signing? (BONUS ROUND!)
Dominic Fifield: Alou Diarra to West Ham from Marseille. A player with unfinished business with the Premier League. Actually, unstarted business seeing as he never got a game for Liverpool.
Jamie Jackson: Shinji Kagawa, if he gets a regular game. The Japanese should provide goals, create them and add a differing kind of x-factor to Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.
Kevin McCarra: Robert Green. QPR's acquisition of such an experienced goalkeeper as a free agent looks like a coup.
Player of the season?
Andy Hunter: Papiss Cissé, if he maintains his Newcastle form from the second half of last season.
Louise Taylor: Hatem Ben Arfa, Newcastle United. He's brilliant, if a little brittle, and embodies football's appeal.
Going for Ben Arfa two seasons in a row is just bizarre.

|That Tottenham as Champions prediction really us baffling.|

|All 3 managers to watch didnt last the season. Great picks made there.|
|I wouldn't be surprised if Ben Arfa turned out to have depression or drug addiction or something. There's something wrong there beyond fitness issues.|
