Yes, it’s very early but I’m posting it now while I remember and have time. No need to reply until closer to the start of the season.
I also changed the title to allow for the fact there is some waste of time International tournament on at xmas time.

1) Which Man City will win the league?
2) Team who finishes second behind Man City?
3) The other two CL qualifiers, in order.
4) The three sides relegated from the PL.
5) Which Brentford will follow Huddersfield, Sheff Utd and Leeds and fall victim to second season syndrome. (Slight hint in the question there)
6) Team that massively exceeds expectations.
7) Man Utd award for team that manages to be worse than shite, despite having a solid CL squad
8) Top scorer in PL
9) Top assister in PL
10) First manager sacked.
11) FAC winner
12) Worthless Cup winner
13) CL winner
14) CL runner up
15) EL winner
16) UEFA Conference winner
17) The Divock Origi award for the signing of the summer
18) Lukaku award for biggest waste of money of the summer
19) WC winner
20) How far Engerlund get
21) How far Wales get
22) Random predictions.

Your 22) would be brilliant. Mainly the Chelsea part, nothing against Arsenal, it would just be better seeing Chelsea implode than seeing them get a CL spot as a result.

I was tempted to add a category on ’will Utd stay up this season’ but I assumed that would all but guarantee they won the league without dropping a point or conceding a goal.

Ohh and I’ll obv change 21) if Scotland or Wales qualify.

Got a feeling Chelsea will struggle next season, also unsure about how far Artetta can take Arsenal. That said I will leave my predictions until the day the league starts!!

Aye, far too early now. No real transfers have happened. Bar half of Chelsea's defence saying they are pissing off to Spain.

Only a week until the Charity Shield so bumping this thread.

Also updated 22 to reflect the fact Wales qualified, and Norn Iron still didn't.

Updated mine the other day, although now we’ve spanked the boys in blue 4-0 we’re obviously going to win the league 😂

2) Team who finishes second behind Man City? Liverpool
3) The other two CL qualifiers, in order. Chelsea, Spurs
4) The three sides relegated from the PL. Fulham, Everton, Leeds
5) Which Brentford will follow Huddersfield, Sheff Utd and Leeds and fall victim to second season syndrome. (Slight hint in the question there) Brentford
6) Team that massively exceeds expectations. Newcastle
7) Man Utd award for team that manages to be worse than shite, despite having a solid CL squad Man Utd (I just don't see Ten Hag having any short term impact)
8) Top scorer in PL Haaland
9) Top assister in PL Son
10) First manager sacked. Lampard
11) FAC winner Arsenal
12) Worthless Cup winner City
13) CL winner City

8) Top scorer in PL Haaland
9) Top assister in PL Son
10) First manager sacked. Lampard or Gerrard.. can't decide, can't decide...
11) FAC winner Spurs
12) Worthless Cup winner Arsenal
13) CL winner PSG
14) CL runner up Man City
15) EL winner No idea who is in it and sadly I don't care either.. won't be an British team though - sorry
16) UEFA Conference winner As above
17) The Divock Origi award for the signing of the summer Haaland
18) Lukaku award for biggest waste of money of the summer Jesus, I have a nagging feeling the storming pre-season will become nothing more than a threatening rain cloud, 10-12 goals all season at best.
19) WC winner Brazil
20) How far Engerlund get Semi finals
21) How far Wales get Won't get out of their group
22) Random predictions. XG to be a distant memory by the end of the season as pundits prefer to track Intagram followers to truly define which team has the best chance of scoring on Love Island? I think it is also fair to expect that the main reason that no British team will win either of the two smaller European competitions will be due to delays caused by Brexit....

1) Which Man City will win the league? Man City
2) Team who finishes second behind Man City? Liverpool
3) The other two CL qualifiers, in order. This is trickier, probably Spuds ahead of Chelsea.
4) The three sides relegated from the PL. Take your pick from about 6 as usual. I don't see Everton doing any better with Fat Frank still in charge and Spurs having wasted a **** tonne on Richarlison. Leeds have sold their best players. Brentford will get second season syndrome. The three promoted sides all look very much "good championship" sides. I'll go for Everton, Fulham and Forest.
5) Which Brentford will follow Huddersfield, Sheff Utd and Leeds and fall victim to second season syndrome. (Slight hint in the question there) Brentford, obviously. But they may just stay up cos there are 3 worse sides.
6) Team that massively exceeds expectations. Not sure I can see anyone breaking in to the top 6, so it's a case of who from the rest does unexpectedly well. Pot luck. West ham.
7) Man Utd award for team that manages to be worse than shite, despite having a solid CL squad. Utd again. Ten Haag does look like a decent manager and he makes all the right noises, but that board and the shite still in that squad will hamstring him. Leicester will struggle too with no new signings
8) Top scorer in PL Salah
9) Top assister in PL KDB
10) First manager sacked. Fat Frank
11) FAC winner Spurs to break that 600 year trophy duck
12) Worthless Cup winner City
13) CL winner Given Real's fluke last year, anyone from about 10. But realistically, Pool/City/Bayern. I'll go City and hopefully jinx it.
14) CL runner up Pool
15) EL winner Utd
16) UEFA Conference winner Whatever Spanish or Italian sides are in it. Is there even an English side in it?
17) The Divock Origi award for the signing of the summer These are normally won by an under the radar signing, Kante/Mahrez at Leciester etc. and I'm not sure Nunez or Haaland can every justify those price tags. Bissuma at Spuds looks a good one, on paper.
18) Lukaku award for biggest waste of money of the summer. Richarlison, WTF were Spuds thinking?
19) WC winner who cares, NI arent in it! Lol. I'll guess Germany
20) How far Engerlund get Hopefully they don't win it cos I am sick of hearing about the women already. Quarter finals.
21) How far Wales get Second round
22) Random predictions. Harry Kane to continue to be a dirty fouling wee bastard who gets free kicks when he should get red cards and the media to say FA about it cos he is Engerlund captain innit. Barcelona's **** or bust gamble of flogging their income from future years to spend/waste it on MORE players now whilst not getting rid of any of the dross on their books (Umtiti on 300kpw anyone?) just screams of an accident waiting to happen. They literally need consistent runs to the very latter stages of the CL (semi final and beyond) just to break even given they flogged so much of their future income. If that doesn't happen they will do a Leeds.
