i can see it being a three horse race for the title.
Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea
and unless Arsenal make some investments i think they could lose out on 4th spot to a number of teams this season. I mean Everton and Villa are obviously going to be there or there abouts unless something drastic happens, but i can also see Spurs finally mounting a serious challenge for the top 4 and if Manchester City can bring in some more quality players which everyone expects we can see then challenging for 4th place aswell this season.
Definately agree, those three will fight for top. I think it'll be close again, and probably go to the last few weeks like this season.
However in my opinion, there is no way theyre going to be any greater challenge than this season. Mark Hughes is right, they need a few more years to build the team up before they can start to challenge.
This season for example, I heard a City fan say "great, now we have all this money we can finally reach our potential." What potential lol?! Theyve been a decent mid table team for a while now. And well done to the richest club in the world for failing to qualify for european football and just about escaping relegation! Thats not a great start, theres no way theyre going to get the players they want until they actually start to achieve and get european football, and that'll take time.
