Premier League 2013/14 Season Predictions

After 3 months of long wait the Premier League is back. Liverpool and Stoke will commence the start of another season on Saturday and now is the time where the talking stops, the betting starts on bwin, and the football takes centre stage.

It has been a summer of intense transfer talk with Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Wayne Rooney taking most of the newspapers space. It seems like Bale is on his way out whilst it seems Liverpool have won their little battle to keep Luis Suarez despite Arsenal are set to make a bid close to £50 million pounds while Wayne Rooney’s future is still unclear.

Premier League Trophy

This year we will trying to get into more interesting discussions with you about real football, we won’t be posting match day reports any more but we’ll be focusing on controversial issues, predictions, specific teams and players, potential transfers and so on.

My first idea was to post my predictions for the forthcoming season, asking you to share your predictions as well.  Mine are as follows taking into account what stands so far with transfers, things however could change for example Suarez could still go to Arsenal, Rooney to Chelsea, Bale stays and so on.

1. Manchester City

2. Chelsea

3. Manchester United

4. Arsenal

5.  Spurs

6.  Liverpool

————————————-

18. Stoke City

19. Crystal Palace

20. Hull City

These are my predictions for the forthcoming season, what are yours? Can Jose turn on his magic again? Can Manuel Pellegrini engineer his City side to a Premier League title? Will Moyes be able to retain the crown? Or maybe Arsenal could finally pull it off?

Feel free to share your predictions and your opinions on this summer transfers (or lack of transfers if we talk about Arsenal).

My predictions, I seriously believe that Arsenal will struggle if they don’t sign anyone but I guess that could change. We have kept Suarez for now and we are in talks with Willian who would be fantastic in my mind, though I’m not sure that would happen. Think the Mourinho effect will get Chelsea the league. I think Palace won’t do as badly as people are thinking but will still struggle to stay up and I think Stoke will join them and Hull in the championship next year.

Saying that, they will probably now beat us tomorrow :p

I just don’t think they have a better team than us, I think Wilshere is the only Arsenal player who I would want at Liverpool. Obviously Wenger is the more experienced coach which could make the difference but their squad is stale and needs reinforcements.

I agree with Edd, I see Chelsea as champions this season. But as an Arsenal fan I am quite fearful ahead of this campaign, seems we’re heading towards another year of disappointments. But I’m looking forward to seeing Ryo Miyaichi in the Arsenal shirt, that kid could become a huge hit. Also if Sanogo turns as good as he was in FM, we’ll be in for some glory days :)

I think Mourinho will get Chelsea the league, if they did end up buying a striker there would be no doubt for me. United will struggle as they actually don’t have a great squad, I’m still struggling to see how they can win a league with the midfield they have and Danny Welbeck. Even without Bale, Spurs will be 4th. Soldado will score enough goals and Chadli and Paulinho are very good signings in my opinion. Despite being an Arsenal fan, I worry for us this season. We have manager who has no idea what he’s doing and a squad that other than Wilshere, Walcott, Cazorla and Podolski is distinctly average. But we will still be better than Liverpool who haven’t strengthened at all really.

Palace and Hull are two awful teams, Palace are Championship standard and that will be shown over the season and Hull just won’t score enough. Sunderland also don’t impress me and I really want to see Di Canio muck it up, he annoys the hell out of me!

I’ve changed my mind, Arsenal will be 6th and knocked out of the CL by Fenerbache, the opening day made me realize just how bad our squad is! I think Southampton will be one to watch and being 7th or 8th isn’t out of the question for them.

Completely agree mate! Whilst I don’t think Cabaye is of a good enough standard for what we need, he is just a better version of Arteta who is awful, that bid is a joke. In the market nowadays, he is worth at LEAST £20m in my opinion. P**s take

Like most I think Mourinho will have the magic touch and United’s warn midfield will struggle for the creative edge that the rest of the top flight enjoy…I just feel like Fergie knew how to use what he had whereas Moyes, needs reinforcements…

The Mourinho factor will play its part and the Portuguese is the only one with any experience of winning the League (or in the case of Moyes, winning anything). Talking of the scot, I’m really disappointed that after years of working on a tight budget, all the money has gone to his head at United and instead of making shrewd signings after intense scouting, he has just stalked any player with a massive price-tag and not actually analysed the gaps in the team and the real deals in the market.
Arsene Wenger has, expectantly, made a mockery of any Arsenal fans that still support him, letting all their rivals strengthen without doing any business himself and investing in an unknown Frenchman who is unproven at League Two level, let alone the Prem. Fair play to him though getting rid of Gervinho, that should gain them about 5 points…
Big supporter of Ian Holloway but sadly they have a Championship squad, Hull limped into the Premier League and don’t have enough firepower, and Mark Hughes’ managerial ability is still unproven to me despite a good spell at Fulham and I don’t feel the players he has have the ability to suddenly change their playing style and pick up wins.

With Mourinho i truly believe Chelsea have a chance! He always seems to win the leagues in his first year in charge xD!!

I Really hope Stoke stay up but with Mark Hughes in charge i’m not too confident in all honesty!

Also finally i think most of us want Crystal Palace to do well!!! After all Holloways are somewhat legendary

I think it’s that, I hope Stoke go down, all they’ve done since being up is boot the ball up in the air and kick teams off the pitch. And when you’re an Arsenal fan like me, you have to look for some sort of an excuse! lol
