7) CL runner up
8 ) Europa League winner
9 ) UEFA Europa Conference fizzy CWC farce waste of time cup winner
10) Relegated from PL
11) The award for the team that massively exceeds expectations
12) Team that stinks the place out and does much worse than they should
13) The Mo Salah award for best signing of the summer
14) The Lukaku/Jack Grealish award for worst signing of the summer
15) First manager sacked
16) Top scorer
17) Top assister
18) The Brendan Rodgers award for the team that gets into a great position and chokes.

just think we have a chance this season, some great signings to an already stable squad, I may rue the day, but think we have a good chance this season.

You beat me to it, I was just about to update this thread.
I hope you don’t mind but I edited your OP to change the names for the worst signing.

I’ll stick my (obviously wildly wrong) guesses up on Friday. Kinda hard to do it before the transfer window closes, but the season starts on Friday night so…..

We've bought Sancho and Verane, may still lose Pogba and probably wont get a DCM, Chelsea and City both improved and have better managers. Sorry just can't see it. Were like a F1 car without a driver.

@theforceuk I think you quoted the wrong person there ;-)

Ps, I hope you’re right. I’m hoping Utd finish 20th

I think something like this,

Man City, Chelsea, Leicester, Man Utd, Spurs, Arsenal, Everton, Brentford, Wolves and then perhaps Liverpool. lol

Got a wedding tomorrow and an after wedding party (**** knows) the day after so having to do my predictions a bit early.

As always a lot can and probably will change if any big moves happen in the transfer market. Harry Kane leaving Spurs will probably cost them 2 places.

Anyway, here goes,

1) City
2) Pool
3) Chelsea and the scum (Utd)
4) City.
5) City
6) Realistically there are probably about five sides who would win it. The three English sides (Utd won’t unless they appoint a proper manager), PSG and Bayern. PSG play in a farmer’s league and have an amazing forward line, but none of them work back. So I suspect a top European side/manager will be too street smart for them. I’ll go for Bayern
7) City. See above
8) Hard to say when CL groups haven't been drawn. Probably someone who comes third in their group. Sevilla, for a change.
9) Spurs. Them or Roma.
10) I can make a case for about 10 sides to go down. Palace have a new inexperienced manager and a squad that is thread bare, I can see them struggling. Saints are **** or bust with their new striker, if Vesterguard goes they are in trouble. Norwich and Brentford are very well run clubs who have budgeted for relegation, and have squads that are probably bottom 6. Burnley have a budget of 2 and 6, but probably too much experience for those round them. Watford look crap. Brighton don't score enough goals. Newcastle are ehhh Newcastle and Villa could struggle if their Grealish replacements don’t click. Ehhhh I guess I’ll go for Watford, Palace, and Brentford.
11) Ehh no one. Leeds, maybe
12) Hopefully Utd when they get relegated. Spurs could struggle without Kane, if he stays they will be fine.
13) Hard to say, probably someone out side the big four. Though, on paper Varane looks a good signing.
14) Toss up Grealish or Lukaku, neither are worth a quarter of what was paid for them.
15) Whoever is in charge of Watford, they change managers every week.
16) Kane or Salah. If Kane goes to City, give him the award when he signs.
17) Feck knows KDB
18) Leicester or Utd.
19) City to get ridiculously easy domestic cup draws, and reasonably tough European ones. Pool to get another decent PL side in the FAC 3rd round for the 5th or 6th year in a row.

I can tell you straight off the bat your answer to no. 4 will not happen. Look at Pool’s record in domestic cups under Jurgen, play the kids and or get hammered early doors. But more importantly the first two rounds of the FAC, when Pool, always draw other PL sides, are at the same time as the ACON is on, both Senegal and Egypt have qualified. Bye bye Salah and Mane.

PS, you also forgot the CWC winner

It was interesting seeing the BBC pundits predictions today, the vast majority went with either Chelsea or City. Very few betting on Liverpool or United.

OK here goes, always hard without the transfer window being finished (I think Weasal disqualified me last time I waited!)

1) PL winner - City
2) Team that comes second - Chelsea
3) Other CL qualifiers (PL only, no UEFA cup backdooring) - Liverpool, Man United
4) FAC winner - Arsenal
5) Worthless Cup winner - Chelsea
6) CL Winner - City
7) CL runner up - PSG
8 ) Europa League winner - Probably a team who drops out of the CL group stage, Bayern?
9 ) UEFA Europa Conference fizzy CWC farce waste of time cup winner - Spurs
10) Relegated from PL - Southampton, Norwich, Brentford
11) The award for the team that massively exceeds expectations - West Ham
12) Team that stinks the place out and does much worse than they should - this is a tough one this year, Everton?
13) The Mo Salah award for best signing of the summer - Messi
14) The Lukaku/Jack Grealish award for worst signing of the summer - Lukaku
15) First manager sacked - Rafa
16) Top scorer - Kane if he stays at Spurs (but still probably won't win anything) he won't get the same kind of service if he goes to City
17) Top assister - De Bruyne
18) The Brendan Rodgers award for the team that gets into a great position and chokes. - Leicester
19) Any random predictions you want to make - PSG will still not win anything because Poch can't defend
