    I just see a repeat of last season if I'm honest. Man City edge it after we run them close, Tottenham don't really challenge but somehow make a meal of 3rd. Chelsea, Arsenal and United battling it out for fourth with Wolves closer than last year in terms of points. Leicester could go well. West Ham and the like going neither here nor there.

    Strugglers for me look to me to be the three promoted teams, Brighton, Newcastle and Palace.

    Not such a vast gap at the top and Spurs and Unite to be much more involved this year.

    Liverpool will probably finish ten points behind City and ten points ahead of Spurs. I fancy Arsenal for fourth. I reckon Leicester and/or Wolves could above Chelsea.

    Not sure about relegation. For once I don't really agree with the betting there. Probably because nobody has a clue. Villa, Norwich and Watford if I were to have a punt. Bournemouth if they get, like, two injuries to key players.

    Can we have a proper prediction thread?

    Straight forecast of City, Liverpool, Spurs available @ 8/1

    That's blinding value imo.

    I think we'll be better than people think, probably 50/50 for the top four. Definitely above Manchester Utd.

    Ya. Beginning of the season will be rough but you’ll be killing it once the 3-named lads in midfield return

    Was Hazard not about 75% of everything good they did?

    Yes, so we probably won't come third or win the UEFA Cup, but the fact that he isn't there means the ball will go to others instead. Pulisic won't be terrible either. My main worry is lack of goals in the team.

    The Internet Predicts The Premier League 2019/20

    For those who missed it last week, I had an idea to use the power of the hive mind to predict the final 2019/20 Premier League table.

    There were teething problems at first as I used an inadequate system to record everyone’s responses and subsequently some data was lost. However, I was quick to action a fix and the new survey was up and running as soon as the problem was spotted. Some of you may have entered on the old system so please ensure you enter your submissions today to avoid missing out on being part of this experiment, if you haven’t done so already.

    There is still a week to submit your predictions! You can only submit one entry so please go to https://bit.ly/1920predictions and if you get a ‘thank you for participating’ message, you have already entered. Otherwise, please submit your predictions!

    In the first week, I received a whopping 543 responses and the predicted league is really starting to take shape. I am pleased to say there has only been a handful of “sabotage predictions,” so would like to say a big thank you to everyone who hasn’t tried to spoil this. That being said, it could only take a trickle of genuine votes to reshape the standings.

    The deadline to submit your predictions is kick-off time for the first league game, which is 8PM on Friday 9th August when Norwich face Liverpool. After which I will share the results for everyone to see.

    So far this idea has been shared on various subreddits (r/FantasyPL, r/PremierLeague & r/soccer) as well as a few forums (ResetEra, rllmuk & The Third Half) and Twitter and I encourage you to promote it among your friend and peers to help get as many responses as possible. If we can get to 1000 predictions submitted, that will be an amazing achievement.

    As stated previously, I intend to provide regular updates on how the predicted table is performing compared to the real league table – although it’s worth noting that we are aiming to predict the final league table, and obviously it gradually takes shape over a nine-month period.

    Once again, here is the link to do your predictions. If you are doing it on a mobile device, I urge you to “request desktop site” as it is much easier to complete.

    Thanks again to everyone who takes part.

    Five goals, two of them crackers, one a goalkeeping error and still time left for more as Luton look for an equaliser. Not bad...

    James Collins, still uncapped

    He was in our under 21 squad when he pissed on someone at a horse race.

    Always reminds me of the Di Canio era at Swindon (Collins). Seem to recall him scoring four in game once (I checked, 5-0 home win against Pompey, NYD 2013). Always thought he was under-appreciated at Town so pleased to see him doing well.

    I see Bury have had their second game of the season suspended - not looking good for them. Amazed they've let Bolton start the season with three senior outfield players.

    Joelinton's scored against Saint-Ettiene. He's going to have to carry us so hard this season, isn't he? FT: 2-1. Longstaff for us and Debuchy for them.

    Sancho really plays like a beast. I wouldn't go that far with the Mbappe statement. Sancho does not contribute enough goals.

    He doesn't score as much, but he makes up for it in assists. For a worse team in a far more competitive league. Just from watching the two he seems to have an equal impact to Mboops, if not bigger. My balls aren't big enough to take it that far though.

    I was pretty pleased with the Albion's performance today. Bit shite at first like, but quite like the balance of Krovinovic, Sawyers and Livermore in midfield. Thank fuck it ain't Chrissy Brunt stinking up the joint anymore.

    Even if we don't go up this season it's nice to see young players given a go, and Bilic seems to have a plan.

    Went to Brentford vs Birmingham yesterday expecting it to be better then the L2/L1 football I normally get with MK but it was terrible. Birmingham might have been worse than any L2 side I’ve seen but Brentford didn’t trouble them in the second half. Daylight robbery of a result though.

    Do City not have a shirt sponsor this year?

    I was hoping for a few youth players on the bench for us, give them a ‘big game’ while not having to worry about it.

    This is a retro shirt to remind all of their fans that this club did exist in some way before 2008.

    Most of the modern strips are awful. Wolves, in particular, are shocking. No shirt sponsors are great though. Hopefully, they catch on.

    That new rule is quality. If someone shouts something at the referee or fourth official but they can't determine who it was, the booking defaults to the most senior member of the team present. Should provide solid entertainment through the season, seeing teams trying to 'I am Spartacus' their way out of it and managers flinging subs under the bus to avoid getting a second yellow themselves.

    That's a goal and assist combo I didn't think I'd see.
