I was kinda looking forward to seeing Wolves do ok this season but now I absolutely hope they get relegated.

Giving a goalkeeper the number 11 shirt is bang out of order.

Seems good enough, not sure why you've put palace so high and Fulham so low though.

We're reserved Ikeme's number 1 for the remainder of what was his playing contract. Still though unsure why Patricio is 11, goalkeepers usually wear 13 don't they?

Big season for Huddersfield. Many forget last season was a slog for them - an unexpected play-off final and then the step up to the PL is not easy. This summer unlike most teams the majority of their players have had a good rest. One of the most cohesive teams in the league and they've added quality like Sobhi & Mbenza.

Wolves are pretty shite. We were horrific last season and we handled them with ease - this when they had breathing space at the top of the champ and us languishing at the bottom of the prem. They've sold a crucial player in Douglas and a proven scorer in that disgusting colour of theirs. The incomings are a million miles off what's needed to battle their way to safety. They're like the opposite of what has made previously promoted teams successful. The cohesion of Swansea, Bournemouth, Burnley, Huddersfield - they come nowhere near. When they inevitably lose a few on the trot these individuals will start turning on eachother and will only care about personal reputation and not the team.

I Can see your point in regards to Huddersfield but I don't think they'll finish that high as I think that in terms of the talent in that team they are nowhere near top 8 quality. I can say the opposite about Wolves. The new players may take time to settle but they favored building on the momentum as they resigned most of the loanees that got them out of the championship which means fewer players will have to settle into the squad. Although they could lack cohesion at the start of the season, IMO the talent will see them through in the end

I like the 'sentiment' (not sure thats the right word?) behind him not having number 1, but you can't give him number 11 :D And yeah, one of your other keepers has 13 i think

Palace - there's usually a team that makes the top half against expectations and I fancy that, with a full season under Hodgson, they may be the side to do it this season.
Fulham - I don't know. Perhaps others are seeing something I'm not, but I look at their squad and it suggests a season of struggle, rather than comfortable survival. I don't watch much Championship, and I do gather they played some nice stuff last year, but that's rarely much of an indicator when it comes to how a side will fare in the Premier League.

Largely guesswork though, really, and it wouldn't massively surprise me to see the latter finish above the former!

Thing is half these teams will replace their manager which will change things. If Wolves get in Big Sam for example I'd back him to turn it around.

Nah he'd just insist on route 1 football and pie and chips as a pre match meal
Unfair and untrue. There's perhaps some nextgens taking his spot now but he was revolutionary in terms of sport science - one of the most radical English coaches there's been.

Can't be bothered to do a full table, but here's my hashtag reckon:

Liverpool to win the league: upwards momentum, very strong all over the park, plus there are rarely ever consecutive title winners.

Palace to finish top half: because they're fucking Palace and literally nothing bad ever happens to them. Even in the seasons they struggle, they make a sterling comeback or dramatically stay up on the last day.

Everton to make a strong start, find themselves in the top 4, then implode in December.

Huddersfield are basically Bradford c. 2001, will be in the bottom three all season and finish there but without necessarily embarrassing themselves.

The Wolves surge will end in anti-climax, as they finish comfortably safe without ever looking like troubling the top half. Probably a few of their better players will turn out to be reasonable Premier League players, but short of a top six/top eight side. Be interesting to see how much is invested beyond that -- potentially Man City/Chelsea money?

I think the Swan guy doesn't like the Wolves guy very much. Fair play to the wolf not taking the bait and jumping in the water where the swan would kill him. The wolf could himself entice the swan out of the water and kill him as it's his territory.

Or maybe the swan was making a reasonable claim and not enticing the wolf to jump I don't know.

I'd rather let our team do our talking on the pitch, I'll be sure to revisit some of these quotes before the end of the season ;)

The imagery evoked by a wolf and a swan going at it HAMMER AND TONGS makes makes me wonder whether Wolves are still producing programme covers like this?



Because if so it'll be worth having them back just just for that. If not then I am disappoint.

Afraid not, Jody Craddock had been doing the program artwork since last season. Local artist Louise Cobbold is supposed to be doing them for this campaign.

FUN FACT! Wolves and Swansea only played each other once in the league over the past 20 years and both games were played in October 2008. Both sides won at home, Swansea 3-1 and Wolves 2-1. However, Wolves won the league that season (also the last time Wolves won the 2nd division from last season backwards).

I think your stat is wrong. We played each other in the Premier League as recently as the 2011/12 season, drawing both games 2-2 at Molineux, and 4-4 at the Liberty Stadium.

Not complaining with 4th but you have Arsenal twice and no Burnley.
