    Don't take much interest in football but I do want MUFC to win again.

    i think another dog fight between man utd and chelski with Aston villia pushing for the top 4

    Also rangers for the spl

    Best signing - Nasri

    Best bargain - Behrami

    Worst spenders - Tottenham - Sold their second best striker, look to be selling their best, sold their error prone goalkeeper and signed a worse goalkeeper for making errors. Big gamble on Bentley as he isn't actually that good

    Best signings - Sunderland - strengthened all areas of their squad with half decent players, got Gordon at the back to keep things solid. Could be a surprise contender for Europe they can find a decent partner for Cisse until Jones returns. Still 3 or 4 more signings to come.

    Most improved - West Ham - Not through transfers but the return of the injured. Bellamy, Faubert, Collins, Gabbidon, Etherington, Parker, Dyer, Quashie, Davenport and Bowyer all spent most of last season injured. Ashton was also still recovering from an injury. If we can keep them fit we have greatly improved squad before you take any transfers into consideraton.

    Least improved - Everton - No one signed

    Ones to watch - Zaki , Nasri, Behrami, Ashton, Alves, Campbell, Downing, Johnson. Too many too list lol

    Big Gambles - Modric, Jo

    Title - Liverpool :oops:

    Champions League - Barca

    Cups - Both won by top 4 teams

    First manager to go - Hughes

    For the drop - Stoke, Hull, WBA, Bolton,

    Great thought out post! Rep left :thumbsup:

    Yeah out of those 4, too close to call, I was going to put a 5th - Fulham

    I don't think my review is to biased lol I did put Alves as one to watch!

    :lol: Thought that myself! BWFC need at least one central defender but they'll stay up without setting the world on fire!

    Sam old story with West Ham fans, claiming they are rubbish cause of the amount of injuries they have. There's a reason why Curbishly is favourite to be first manager sacked. the strength of the squad in depth is poor. Most of those players you've got coming back from injury are Championship standard at best.

    Seen Tottenham in Pre season, and they look good. IF (and it's a big IF!) they can keep Berbatov, they will be a decent side. Modric is class, and some of the younger players they've got coming through (huddlestone, O'Hara etc) they have a good British hub to the team. Gomes is good keeper too, much better than Robinson, and will save more points per game than he loses.

    Tip for the title tho, Chelsea, Man Utd 2nd, Liverpool 3rd. Aston Villa have improved slightly, but not nearly enough to challenege the top 4. City, Pompey and Spurs have a better chance, with the best 3 managers outside the 'Big Four'.

    Where did I claim we was rubbish? Top ten finish last season not bad considering.

    I don't really think out strength is depth s poor hence why last season we was left playing the likes of sears, Collison, Tomkins and Reid but still finished 10th. Whereas Tottenham featuring players like Keane and Berbatov barely scraped 11th.

    Yes Tottenham may have looked good in pre season but that's al rubbish, the fact of the matter is they looked championship standard against Boro, Moric looked lost, Dos Santos may aswell not have played.

    Thier top scorer has only scored one goal, it's unfair of me to comment on him because I didn't even know they signed him. Own Goal I think he is called, sounds foreign to me

    You are obviously deluded I you think Bellamy, Ashton, Faubert, Dyer, Collins, Gabbidon, Etherington and Parker should be playing in the Championship.

    I don't think you've seen enough of Gomes to comment on him, the bloke is an error waiting to happen, as was Robinson.

    I also think Ramos is a very poor manager, he has spent his money very stupidly and I don't think he will be there at the end of the season. If he does become good he will leave as soon as a bigger club comes in because that's what Ramos does.
