After week 1, you have to say City right??? They looked crazy good yesterday, plus getting rid of Tevez, Balotelli (even though great players) and Mancini cant hurt.

As a ManU fan I don't see us finishing #1...hate to say it but it'll be City or Chelsea. We will be in top 3 though. Hearing rumors of getting Ozil from Real. Man I hope that happens; midfield needs a big injection.

What I think:
1. City
2. Chelsea
3. United
4. Spurs
5. Liverpool
6. Arsenal

However, it's silly to make predictions after one round. United lost at Everton last year and a lot of people wrote them off. If Spurs can keep Bale, they can challenge for the title. Their midfield is nasty. Also, if Defoe can learn to put the ball in the net instead of pulling it wide, he willl amplify their attacking threat.

United WILL NOT win the league. They just aren't good enough. I am a Chelsea fan and have been for years so I am cheering for them. City looked good yesterday and I am a little curious how Mourinho is going to get playing time for all his guys.

I ABHOR Man U. I couldn't stand Alex Ferguson (and no, I will NEVER call him 'Sir'). However, I love Moyes. Love the guy and what he did at Everton. So it's a lot harder to cheer against Man U now.

Wonder how much time Defoe will see if Saldado lights it up?

Default Re: BPL

I agree it's silly to make a prediction after week 1, basically just asking who everyone thinks will win.

I personally don't think United have it either. New manager, losing a force like Rooney likely. Under Ferguson I would argue differently, but I just think they take a hit with a very good coach in Moyes. They will lose/draw some games where Fergie's knowledge would get them through.

Chelsea, they have the talent to win it but I think the fanfare around Mourinho being back will take away from the actual product on the field at some point. I will say they have some of the best attacking players in the league, but until they find a consistent striker I don't see them winning it. I think Lukaku is the guy but not sure how much Mourinho trusts him yet.

City look like a completely different team. Under Mancini they would just pass teams to sleep until they hoped for an opening. Pellegrini is a different monster with his style, attack, attack, attack. Also, he puts his in form players on the field unlike Mancini. Mancini just made sure his superstars were on the field. He told Joe Hart the other day that he needed to find his form from a couple of years ago or he would lose his spot. That said, he also puts his players in a position to succeed. Last year Mancini didn't know what to do with Dzeko, Pellegrini already has him back to form. And as someone else said, he has no patience for the Balotelli's and Tevez's of the world.

Should be interesting but I also see it being between Chelsea and City with City getting the slight edge based on experience.

I'd say it will dwindle significantly. ESPN FC reporting that United are launching a 35m bid for Fellaini and Baines. I'd be happy with that deal.

City or Chelsea will win the league, both have looked great, City especially.

United's lack of a midfield will be their downfall. Spurs will be top 4, United and spurs will battle between 3rd and 4th.

Things aren't THAT bad. You all do need to sign some players or tell Wenger to hit the road, though.

The Sun (A tabloid, I know) is reporting that the Bale-to-Madrid deal is all but finished and Spurs are preparing to launch a raid for 4-6 players. No clue who they are.

No word on the United deal yet.

Fenerbache fans in Turkey set off flares and fireworks outside of the Arsenal hotel last night. Arsenal/Fenerbache play the 1st leg of a UCL playoff match tonight. It's looking like Arsenal's only chance of being in the UCL next year is to win it this year.
