Premier League 2016-17

so, after an eventful 2015-16 Premier League season, its congratulations to Leicester for their very first Premier League crown!

and as the pre seasons friendlies are under way, what do you think your team has in store for you?

who do you hope to sign?

what do you make of your signings so far?

and above all else, make your predictions now, who will win the Premier League this time?

in fact, who's feeling really brave, who wants to predict the top 4/5/6?

discuss!

United to Win the league

Happy with the signings so far. In all honesty I hope they don't pay 100m for pogba. He's quality but no ones worth that amount.

I don't think Leicester will do as good this year but a top 10 finish should be easy enough for them.

how often do you see the smaller team do really well, then fall away the following year though?

hope it doesn't happen to them though, be good seeing them in CL games too

£100m for Pogba is obscene tbh

My team, Liverpool, could be an interesting season, buying in who he wants now, hoping we manage to get rid of Ballotelli though

I think Liverpool will do very well under Klopps first full season in charge, has already made some good signings with Matip, mane and with Danny Ings coming back to full fitness I think Liverpool can make top four, especially with no European competition Klopp can put all his eggs in one basket.

City
United
Chelsea
Arsenal

That's my predication for the season top 4

Hopefully conte brings some good things to Chelsea, seems like a good bloke. Hazards getting back to where he should be which is a bonus

I'd go for Man City, Chelsea, Man Utd then one from a few for 4th place.

I've a feeling this will be Arsenal's year to fall out the top 4.

Leicester will do well to stay in the top 8. Southampton can't keep having wholesale changes every year and keep the good form.

I've a feeling we'll see more teams than ever struggling in Europe.

Can't believe we sold Ibe to Bournemouth, also for £15m! I thought he was coming on well! Have a feeling that might come back to bite us on the ass

Oooh no. I'm glad to see the back of him in truth. Too similar to Sterling with bags of speed and no end product.

He'd beat 1 guy then try his luck again heading for the bye line and end up running it out for a goal kick. Every single game he did that.
Add into that his eagerness to shoot when a simple pass was on kind of ended his LFC career.

Klopp knew he wasn't his style of player and cut him from the squad after a few chances. BR thought he was magic.

15m for an average player is good money, but 35m+ for Mane is insane money despite his proven PL form.
