Interesting season for a lot of clubs. If the ‘top six ‘remain the ‘top six’ year after year albeit in a different order, doesn’t it all get a bit monotonous? It’ll take a few years but it would be good for the game itself if a few other clubs broke into the somewhat closed shop ...

Got to say am highly chuffed Utd ended Eriksen interest if rumours true that he was looking towards a Spanish club for himself.
OGS / board seem to have struck the right balance this time looking for the right type of player.

Man Utd/ Arsenal and then Man utd/ Chelsea prob got monotonous for everyone but us :-)
But yes the top 6 could be a series of swap arounds and a boys club for some time to come. Watch wolves and Leicester again though imho

You lot are the only top 6 team to materially strengthen I reckon

If Pogba discovers no one can be arsed pursuing him, he be less of an arse and actually try to succeed at Utd, and I reckon you would get 3rd if other teams perform similarly (although there is always one who surprises - up or down)

Everton have been quietly strengthening this summer. It’s going to be a very competitive league this year.

Yeah Everton, Wolves and Leicester all stand a good chance of breaking into the top

For me its City, Liverpool (probably in that order)

Arsenal strengthened attack but not defence
Spurs strengthened Midfield
Chelsea, Transfer ban but new manager and some good kids
Us Strengthened a bit but midfield still potentially weak

Its gonna be interesting

they will be interesting to watch, lost their best player and highest scorer, and Hudson-Odoi / Loftus-Cheek both have serious injuries

I think they will struggle this year but Barkley looks a new man under Lampard!

I don't think the big issue will be with them competing in games, rather competing over the space of a season.

Arsenal are quite interesting ,not strengthened where they need to but if Pepe continues his form they have an attack as good as anyone’s and you can get away with a dodgy back 4 (we finished 2nd with a crap back 4)
We look very weak in midfield and I’m not convinced about the forward line unless certain players start showing more than potential .

So just to clarify....

Harry
Lindlof
Smalling
Jones
Rojo
Tuanzebe

That’s a lot of centre-backs.
