In a diversion from the standard chat around FSGs impending Enron style financial meltdown one thing occurred to me while watching the opening fixtures this week. The level of competition this season is going to be ferocious. Now I dont mean that there are 7 or 8 teams that can win the title, I believe thats probably going to be down to us and City, maybe Chelsea if they strike gold in terms of bedding in their squad. What I mean is that you look at Chelsea, Utd, Wolves, Leicester, Arsenal and even Everton they all look stronger and better organised. I admit this prediction may not age well, and we havent seen Utd play yet, but all of those teams look capable of taking points from us City and each other. Im not suggesting they will all beat us, thats not gonna happen. But I think we will drop alot more points this year. I dont think there will be any long unbeaten runs, nobody will get near 100 points, its going to be savage.
