    @Jonathan, we're not allowed in here mate, it's the only safe haven the straights have against the gay harem of Towers Street. ;)

    So a new season begins in the Premier League on Friday, what is everyone thinking? My early predictions for the table:

    1. Man United (I'm getting it right this season )
    2. Man City
    3. Liverpool (depends on if Van Dijk signs)
    4. Chelsea (squad looks thin)
    5. Arsenal
    6. Tottenham (missed their chance, Wembley a hinderance)
    7. Everton
    8. West Ham
    9. Leicester
    10. Crystal Palace
    11. Southampton
    12. Stoke
    13. Watford
    14. West Brom
    15. Newcastle
    16. Bournemouth
    17. Brighton
    18. Burnley
    19. Swansea
    20. Huddersfield

    1. Man City (Strengthened where they needed to)
    2. Chelsea
    3. Liverpool (Not enough depth for a challenge)
    4. Tottenham (After an early CL exit)
    5. Man Utd (Lots of home draws again)
    6. Arsenal (Europa League games will drain them)
    7. Everton (Top 6 are still years ahead)
    8. Southampton
    9. West Ham Utd
    10. Newcastle Utd
    11. Stoke City
    12. Leicester City
    13. West Brom
    14. Watford
    15. Burnley
    16. Bournemouth
    17. Huddersfield (Think a tight defence will save them)
    18. Crystal Palace (Big Sam to go early)
    19. Brighton
    20. Swansea City

    Think it'll be an exciting season, think Huddersfield will surprise many as teams that come up with tight defences usually do well.

    More importantly my local team Lincoln City played there first proper league game in 6 years. Nice to be back where we belong.

    Everton will have to improve somewhat to beat us to 7th, and Burnley are on a bad run so I'm not sure!

    Oh... you mean Manchester City!? :p

    Ha ha ha to be fair Leicester are on a great run - good side.

    Man City - I dunno they will win it this year but how can they improve really? Next season will be interesting

    I think city will win this season hands down but then teams will be catching on to how they play meaning an interesting season next year. There's 5/6 teams that could win next season

    Jimmy Armfield has sadly passed away today. He was the true definition of a legend; one of the first ever overlapping full backs, the record appearance holder for Blackpool, a former England captain and a great of broadcasting. I have never heard a bad word said about this great man and he will be hugely missed by all in football.

    Rest in peace.

    Probably the only one

    Though season for you guys, I am happy that my team Wolves are nearly home and dry- I thought we were going to blow it a few weeks back.

    Every season is a tough season at the big top. You guys have pretty much had it sealed since the begining.
