Let's be honest Liverpool will be lucky for a top4 finish. They have a easy start and they will be high up near the start of the season and allLiverpool fans will tell me for ~19th time how they are going to win the EPL. I will feast on tears for months

I don't know any Liverpool fans who think that next season will be ours. Sure you get the odd fool who keeps bleating "next year is our year" and makes the rest look bad but for the most a top four finish is the most that will be hoped for.

England: Chelsea
Spain: Barcelona
Scotland: Rangers
Germany: Bayern Munich (Neuer seals it)
Italy: Inter
France: OL
Netherlands: Ajax
Portugal: Benfica

Germany: Tough call here... Neuer is a wall of a keeper, but Bayern was meh last year. Still think I'll go with them though.

I for one enjoy spanking Man City in extra time again

Good God Manchester City are fucking wank. Mancini is a terrible manager. If they want to be relevant they need to get rid of him.

England - Netherlands friendly called off due to riots as you all probably know.

Thankfully it means it's unlikely that any players will get injured. Was stupid to have a friendly so close to the start of the Premier League season anyways.

Also it means I can watch Germany-Brazil on ESPN instead  :)

I for one support Birmingham City, I'm quite dissapointed with their performance being as the year before last we finished 9th! I blame Alex McLeish, but atleast with got a new manager now. Some good transfers being made, though we shouldn't have loaned Ben Foster out to West Brom. The guy we got in return is absolutely disgraceful :P

The kit isn't too great either, looks like a 1960's kit :P


Though that doesn't really affect how they play. I'm hoping for a shot at the play offs, though it'll be a struggle to beat West Ham and Leicester.

I thought Alex McLeish was one of the better managers in the league, don't know why you would sack him.

Those were my exact thoughts as well. When they set that friendly I was thinking it was terrible timing just a few days before the league starting up.

:P He resigned. And yeah, he had a great reputation, but the things he did were just silly. For example, we had a very offensive team, and he rarely ever played offensively. We had alot of money last season, and he spent over £20M on players that didn't make an impact on the team.

When he resigned he went to Aston Villa (our derby) so we were given £7M compensation. I think :P

New game

Moan about how hard your teams start is

Manchester United

West Brom A  
Tottenham H
Arsenal H
Bolton A
Chelsea H
Stoke A
Norwich H
Liverpool A
Man City H
Everton A

Our first 10 games excluding Norwich and I would say West Brom are all incredibly hard, I would be surprised if our rivals have a harder start 9I think Liverpool's is particularly easy, let's hope for our sake they don't get carried away). Most of the big games we have is at home while we have tricky away games against home specialists, Bolton, Stoke, Liverpool and Everton. That means if we lose some Home games serious pressure could be on us due to our away form last season, we'll really need to grind out some results over this period.
