7) CL runner up - PSG
8 ) Relegated from PL - Brighton, Huddersfield, Watford
9) Team that massively exceeds expectations - Palace
10) Team that stinks the place out and does much worse than they should - Arsenal
11) Best signing of the summer - Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester) notable mention to the Matic signing
12) Wayne Rooney award for worst signing of the summer - for big money Salah (Liverpool), for peanuts Cleverley (Watford)
13) First manager sacked - Marco Silva (Watford)
14) Top scorer - Aguero (if he can stay fit)
15) Any random predictions you want to make - Rooney to be sent off against Manure

13) First manager sacked - Shakespeare will be sacked first, but Benitez will go quick too, probably within days of each other
14) Top scorer - Kane
15) Any random predictions you want to make - after the 2nd match of the season 65% of the Arsenal fans will be chanting "Wenger Out!" (the team will have won twice and have a goal difference of plus 7)

I suppose I should really have done this myself.
1) PL winner - Man City
2) PL runner up - Spurs
3) Other CL qualifiers (PL only, no UEFA cup backdooring) - Chelsea and ehh 1 from 3, I'll say Pool.
4) FAC winner - Chelsea
5) Worthless Cup winner - Spurs
6) CL Winner - It'll probably be that shower of cunts from Madrid, but I'll go for their neighbours in Atletico and hope!
7) CL runner up - Real
8 ) Relegated from PL - I don't see any of the newly promoted sides doing well. Add in Burnley, Watford, and Swansea and you have a lot of dross. I'll take Huddersfield, Newcastle and Burnley.
9) Team that massively exceeds expectations - Everton. I still can't see them making top 6 but I do think they will be closer this year
10) Team that stinks the place out and does much worse than they should - Dreaming of Utd being relegated. I don't see how people think they are one of the favourites for the league, Zlatan carried them for large chunks of last season and he's gone. Lukaku is not the same class. Plus Jose is still a horribly negative ****. Watch him suck the joy of them. I can see Arsenal struggling too. Ozil and Sanchez are at best running down their contracts, at worst trying to leave ASAP. They have strengthen their striking options by buying a guy who is behind their current striker in his national teams pecking order. Not sure that counts. Also not sure on Chelsea, selling Matic was daft. Morata never made sense to me. Hazard injured and they may well struggle, especially if Costa goes/sulks.
11) Best signing of the summer - Honestly I haven't seen a single signing this summer that looks like anything other than daylight robbery. Not a single decent player has moved for a fair price. Not one.
12) Wayne Rooney award for worst signing of the summer - Wazza. Who else? Fat, smoking, McDonald's eating, granny shagging has been, who will NEVER come close to justifying the wages Everton are wasting on him.
13) First manager sacked - Watford could be a good shout. Pot luck this one
14) Top scorer - Kane, if he stays fit.
15) Any random predictions you want to make - Jose to continue to be a tosser. Utd to get a cushy CL group.
