    :D

    Blieve it not I actually believe it could happen. If Man U don't sign anyone before the start of the seson, I don't think they'll do that well. I do believe Arsenal will win the League.

    As much as I hate the bluenoses, his bottom three is pretty far-fetched too.

    Oh yeah! Didn't spot that. Well, probably not a bad punt if you fancy an interesting bet, but yeah, I'd say that's pretty far fetched.

    I say it every year. The law of averages suggests that if I keep doing this one year they actually will :)

    Chelsea

    United

    1: Manyoo
    2: Chelski
    3: Arsenil

    I think ManYoo will be right up there *if* they start scoring. It's no exageration to say that the FA Cup final encapsulated their season last year. Dominating games but failing to score.

    Chelski will again be strong, but i think they'll find it tougher going than last year.

    Arsenil, imo, are a weaker side than last year.

    The rest have no chance. Even the European champs Liverpool. They were an average side last year and will be an average side again.

    /dreams
    /Premiership '06 - 07'

    /1: Plymouth Argyle!
    /2: .................
    /3: ..................

    lol Sid :)

    I've been bitching and moaning RE: the whole sorry state we find ourselves in , but I think with a couple of striking options and maybe a Left sided wing sort we may do ok, no more though. How it sucks to fall from grace.....

    On the plus side I got to meet Sir Bobby today at his book signing in Chelmsford ! \o/ Pleasant as punch :)

    As I'm a Rovers fan, I think you've just got yourself a new best friend! :)

    As to everyone else who thinks we're going to go down...

    Really? We were playing a lot better in the second half of the season, we've picked up a couple of decent strikers in Kuqi and Bellamy. The only problem I think we've got is that we've not strengthened at the back.

    Admitedly we have picked up a bit of a reputation, but if the goals start coming in, I don't think you'll see as much of the rough stuff. We've actually got some decent players. And Dickov.

    Watch out for Gamst-Pederson - with a couple of decent, fast forwards in front of him he'll tear apart most defences.

    I'm reckon we'll finish mid-table, hopefully safely mid-table.

    (Note I wrote this during the down-time....)
