Meh


Some days, the stories on the UF wire suck. Sorry.

Lots of EPL previews this week, with (I'm guessing) about 10 on Friday. We'll try to get something done before then, too.

Because absolutely no one cares what I think, here are my predictions for the 2008/2009 EPL:

1-Arsenal (Islington eyes are smiling)
2-Man Utd
3-Liverpool
4-Chelsea (Scolari to be gone by March)
5-Everton (This is probably too high, but i have a feeling their defense will win them a lot of games.)
6-Aston Villa
7-Man City (With the Thaksin saga becoming uglier, anything in the top 10 might be a success. In Hughes We Trust.)
8-Portsmouth
9-Newcastle (Am I the only one who thinks the Koogan can actually get something out of the shite they call players on Tyneside?)
10-Tottenham ($100 million on signings, and yet spent nothing on shoring up the 2nd worse defense in the EPL last year.)
11-West Ham
12-Blackburn
13-Sunderland
14-Bolton
15-Middlesbrough
16-W.B.A.
17-Fulham (Escape the drop once again)
18-Wigan (Maybe this is just my big market mentality, but I just can't see how Wigan has continued to stay up -- piss-poor pitches help -- even with Steve Bruce on the sidelines.)
19-Stoke City
20-Hull City

Keith said...

They do have Cahill, but they also lost Carsley, which helps, a little. The backline rarely gets booked, refs have come to terms with TIMM-MAY!'s Tourette's. Plus, with the exception of derbies, I've never really heard of their supporters acting a fool (but I suppose I'd react the same way if you ever tipped BCFC to win Fair Play [assuming they ever come back to the Prem])

Villa add Cuellar, strengthen back line

Maybe we can pip Pool for fourth

Andrew said...

Keith - I'd like to see that. But Team KeaneTorres is arguably the best striker duo in the Prem this season.
