Thread: Totally Unofficial 2018/19 Premier League Thread (NWT)

  1. #1

    Totally Unofficial 2018/19 Premier League Thread (NWT)

    ONE MONTH COUNTDOWN. Season begins on August 10th!!!! Time to start getting excited.

    While this brilliant world cup has kept us entertained all summer, it's my other favorite football month of the year: PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES.

    At West Ham the Pellegrini era begins with new signings and new excitement:



    At Arsenal, it's something of a new epoch. Arsene departs after more than twenty years at the helm as Arsenal's longest-serving and most successful manager to be replaced by the young and dad-looking Unai Emery. Will Arsenal suffer from a post-SAF-like depression?? Or can they maintain their hold on the so-called TOP SIX?



    Man City return after an absolutely dominating season to defend their record-breaking title campaign. Will this man get revenge against the footballing world after being left at home by Germany?



    Or will he be relegated to the bench by some new, outrageously expensive signing like this man:



    Will Chelsea or ManU or Spurs challenge Man City's league dominance this season?








    Furthermore, we welcome three newly promoted sides:



    Wolves



    Cardiff



    Fulham

    GET YOUR PREDICTIONS IN HERE!!!!

    Let's go.

    my predictions from last year were all close but no cigar. i had arsenal not finishing in top 6 and huddersfield finishing above brigthton.
    this year top 6 predictions
    man city. they wont run away with it...
    tottenham
    liverpool
    man u
    chelsea
    arsenal

    burnley will finish 14th.

    bottom 3?
    cardiff fulham and huddersfield.


    bold prediction?
    west ham finishing 6th? arsenal looked completely uninterested last year and feel that even a fully engaged squad might not have enough to finish 6th.
    west ham adding some quality and with a good manager should do better.

    I agree there's no way Salah replicates his scoring from last year, but lukaku wasn't even in the top five.

    if harry kane grows his hair a few more inches thats good enough for 4 more goals.

    City (why should they drop off any, barring injuries?)
    Spurs (Poch consistency + attacking core entering prime years, defense aside)
    Pool (Salah scoring falls off a bit)
    United (Solid, but overperformed their expected numbers last year)
    Chelsea

    So, pretty much like this year, I'd guess?

    Pretty much like every year. But better a top 6 than a top 2.

    City inks Mahrez for 60MM GBP.

    Will be interesting to watch Spurs in their shiny new thing try and go for it this year.

    Transfers heating up now. Wonder who will be on the outs at Juve with Ronaldo going there. Probably Higuain. He has Arsenal or Chelsea written all over him.

    Kind of an odd signing for City. He's behind Sterling and Silva in the right wing position. Unless they're going to sell Sterling, which is certainly possible.

    He's far too dynamic for Everton. They would be better of seeking out another stationary no. 10.

    God I hope not. He's a slightly better Bolasie. DO NOT WANT.

    Bring in Tierney and Mina (both "heavily" linked) and get rid of 5-6 more players and I'll be happy. Mirallas, Williams and a few others. Looks like Schneids, Sandro and Klaassen will all be getting second chances under Silva.

    Convince Lookman to stay, and play him alongside Tosun and Walcott up front.

    That should be good enough for the Top Half, which I'll take as long we cleanse the squad of all our bums by next summer.
