    After the first games this weekend, Bruce and Hodgson must be up there. Both teams looked awful.

    I think the newly promoted sides will hold on to their managers for most of the season.

    Spurs’ win had very little to do with luck.

    If you are suggesting they intentionally planned upon losing for the majority of the match in front of their own fans, in some sort of rope-a-dope strategy, before asking Eriksen to reverse the scoreline in the final 15 minutes, you're right, that sounds more like stupidity than luck.

    Definitely more to do with stupidity/stubborness/desperation than luck in my opinion.

    So Poch obv banked on the others to bring home the bacon but as that failed he brought on their most influential player and the game turn immediately and their win was never really in any doubt afterwards. Without Eriksen and to some extent Son this Spurs team is lacking that creative spark that Kane thrives from.

    Don't think its enough to win PL, city just put 5 past West Ham away moreover we're weaker with Ali out for anything upto 5 weeks. Head says city will finish on 97 points

    I think United, Arsenal and Spurs will take more points off us and City this season than last. The positions may well end up being the same, but I just don't think they'll such a bigger gulf between the sides. United have done some sensible business and Arsenal have a forward line among the best in world football. If Emery can get the best out of them, similar to Rodges with SAS, then Arsenal will progress quickly, even with their defensive issues. Spurs have also signed well. Ndombele looks quality, but lets see if they hold onto Eriksen before we judge their summer.

    City's Rodri looks a perfect match for them. His passing under pressure, height and physicality means he's going to be perfect for that team.

    Success this season for ourselves will depend on injuries, potential burn out of our front three, the impact of the first teams of Keita, Chamberlain and Shaqiri, and how well However and Brewster can deputise for Sturridge and Moreno/general defensive cover. My concern this year is now how much our rivals have spent, but how they have spent it. None of the big buys seem to carry much risk and will go to have decent careers. Blah. Hopefully they all break their legs and we cruise to the title and CL number 7.
