with no improvement from last season 3rd position will be a possibility... the thing is it won't take too much to have us as strong favourites.. maybe 1-2 strong signings, tactical wisdom and motivation injection is all we need for now imho, and I believe that motivation and passion is there already... this squad doesn't like to flop like they did last season, so they will be doing everything to prove otherwise this season.

No. They picked Liverpool to win in 2009-10 and Chelsea in 2010-11. So yes, I hope they're about as right as they have been the last 2 years. Get it?

3rd is currenty a quite fair prediction, but it remains only a prediction.

Who did they pick for 1st?

They're doling it out by alphabetical order on a daily basis. They picked Arsenal 5th so many readers are thinking it's going to be Man U, City, Chelsea, Liverpool. I think it's pretty obvious it'll be the two Man clubs for 1-2. Though I hope the Guardian comes up with another whopper and pick LFC first.

As has been said already, with no more signings I wouldn't expect us to be fighting for anything above 3rd place.

I do think City have a bigger chance than ever of winning it, especially if Mancini lets them express themselves in an attacking sense.

My prediction - 1. City 2. United 3. Chelsea 4. Liverpool/Arsenal.

It would be quite bold of them to pick ManCity to win it, not absurd but interesting about their status.

This is a ficking prediction. Football is an amazing sports because all the time its proving predictions to be wrong.

But 3rd position is fair enough for me. I only hope Villas Boas can manage to do good things for the incoming seasons.

With this current squad, winning the PL will be a great surprise for me. The sad thing is: I think City is likely to win CL before we manage to do that. Thanks our stupid transfer politics of last years...

Yeah i thought about that and it would suck.

We had an amazing squad and the best manager, and could not get pass Liverpool twice....

I can already see it, "City has the winning formula that Roman crave in his CL quest".

But me, i will give the benefit of doubt to AVB. When Carlo came i did not expect a double. So let's see what AVB surprises us with.

It largely depends on how much City have improved....United are stronger than last season...Anyone who thinks Liverpool, Arsenal or Tottenham will displace Chelsea from top 4 hasn't been following pre-season or is simply deluded.

As long as we don't suffer a miserable slump like we did last season, I''d go for a top two finish...Rotating the squad members is key for that, and I just hope pre-season is an indication that AVB will do just that

Consistency, rather than periods of dominance, is what it takes to win the EPL imo....

In the end football is unpredictable...The only thing I enjoyed last season was how the pundits kept making fools of themselves
