Who will win the Premier League? (Part 1)


Who will emulate Chelsea's success from last season?

Less than a week to go until the Premier League gets under way for the 2010/11 season, and things are shaping up nicely. Starting at the bottom, Newcastle and WBA are familiar faces back for another crack at the Premiership while last season’s bottom half strugglers will hope Blackpool are the minnows they appear to be. At the other end of the table, the ‘big four’ seems to be disbanding – do we now have a big eight or a top two/three with six/five teams close behind? Only time will tell.

The big question at the start of every season though, is who will be champions come May next year? It’s a very difficult question to answer – as proved last season when many “top” pundits couldn’t look past Liverpool who had a woeful season. I myself – without sounding too smug – got it spot on last year, predicting Chelsea would finish top of the pile in my Season Preview. Can I repeat the trick this time around?

WDKF Wednesday: What a difference a year makes…


WDKF Wednesday Topper

It’s Wednesday again and so I’ve written my weekly piece over at We Don’t Know Football. This week I’m reflecting on what has been quite a remarkable year for Tottenham Hotspur. At this point last season they were rock bottom of the Premier League but this time around they’ve had a flying start and recovered from two defeats to United and Chelsea to score ten goals in two games. It’s been quite a turnaround, so make sure you click through to find out how it has come about.

Also, while I’m at it, apologies for the lack of proper posts over the past few days. I’m having something of a crisis of inspiration and motivation at present – there doesn’t seem to be a great deal going on in the world of football at present and I haven’t had the energy or imagination to dig something up to write about. Hopefully I’ll rectify that from now on though, and things will start to pick up in terms of interesting stuff to write about!
